I posted this in a different thread....

Rock Fantasy" in Middletown NY.
That is in NY's "Orange county".

They primarily cater to the "heavy metal" crowd but, they also support and have a lot of classic rock

They have used LPs as well as newly released LPs

It's worth a tip from anywhere in the area.
Be advised that they never open until 12;00 noon.

I went by this past weekend. Loads of stuff. The metal section was impressive. My son got a couple of T-shirts there and a CD. I will say the quality of their used stuff was far below what I'm used to in other locations. Darkside Records in Poughkeepise, NY has much better quality. They have about 10 times the space, with a full stage with bands that play there on a regular basis. Also Jack's Rhythms in New Paltz, NY has very good quality. Very small store, much smaller than Rock Fantasy.

I will say Rock Fantasy had a large selection of very cool T-shirts, and again an impressive selection of Metal that you usually don't see in other places. The woman behind the counter was extremely helpful pulling down T-shirts for my son. Still glad I made this one time trip.

Despite all the time I spend in Beverley E.Yorks I only found out the other day they have a decent record shop there. Minster Records.

Minster Records, 9 Eastgate, Beverley HU17 0DR

http://www.minster-records.co.uk/

Decent stocks of decent records at fairly decent prices. Wide variety of musical tastes catered for. I bought a couple of LP's (The Saints - The Monkey and Stupids - Peruvian Vacation) and both in very good, clean condition. I noticed quite a few had labels stating they had been cleaned on an RCM which is always good to know. Friendly easy going staff and quite a busy little place.

Just hate the fact I visit Beverley every other week which means I may have to make further purchases. Drat :roll: #-o

Recommended should you be in the area

38 Notting Hill Gate, London, W11 3HX

Used Vinyl LP's and 45's, CD's , has neighbouring stores for Classical ((020) 7229 3219) and Soul/Jazz records. Strict grading standards and judging from my most recent visits very friendly and helpful service.

Reckless Records

:D
Reckless is good. Much fairer prices than Sister Ray across the road, imo.

I used to use it a lot when I lived near Russell Square but now I've moved to Ealing and my record store of choice is http://www.soundsoriginal.co.uk. He deals mainly in old rock and roll and soul, etc. But he has quite a lot of other stuff from the 70s and 80s too. He's very honest about the condition of the records and goes into a lot of details. And his prices are quite fair, too.

The Oxfam Music shop in Ealing Broadway used to be good. There was a time when I'd find 1 or 2 interesting items every time I went in. Now it's rare to find something of interest, although it happens occasionally. I found a good 1st pressing copy of Wheels Of Fire by Cream not so long ago. I think something changed, like maybe someone who dealt with obtaining the records left or something.

I just added both to the map.

(There are multiple record vendors in this store but The Vinyl Destination is by far the best in my opinion)

Bostonians would do well to check out Looney Tunes in Allston. It's tucked back in a courtyard near the Pizzeria Regina at the end of Harvard Ave below what looks like an old fire station. Good selection and friendly staff. Parking is a pain in the neck, but worth your while.

I parked in the Pizzeria Regina lot, got a slice, then walked across the street to crate dig.

Used to live in Manchester, but not been for some time now so can't say if they are still up to spec. They used to be good.

If Huddersfield is possible try 'Wall of Sound'. I was impressed last time home
Happy to report both #1 and #2 seem fine and healthy...... =D> =D> :D

Didn't make it to #3 since my stay in Manchester was a bit compressed..... :shock:

My son goes to college in Portland, Maine & they have several record stores there. I travel up there quite often.
I've bought a couple of pieces, including a first pressing of Blind Faith (censored cover) & a first press of Humble Pie Live at the Fillmore.

One of the stores is called Electric Buddha, & I think the other one was called something like Strange Maine?

I am traveling to Kansas City, MO in late August and hope to check out a few record stores while I am there.

Any recommendations?

Thanks
