I'm heading to LA and some other mid-west and west coast US cities.  Any recommendations for vinyl shopping.  I'm not looking for re-issues but a store ontop of things.

When in Portland:

The Everyday Music flagship store on 10th and West Burnside has a ton of vinyl, usually. There are also little EM branches elsewhere in Portland and one that I know of here in Seattle; they're sure to have vinyl there.

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

When in Portland or Seattle are the Zion's Gate stores still around... it's been a while since I've been in the area.

How long since? I haven't heard of those, actually... Record stores, right?

Vinyl does add that quiet hiss of the needle on the record, and I think that really adds to the music...don't know why, though.
"As a matter of fact I only work with the feeling of something magical, something seemingly significant. And to keep it magical I don't want to know the story involved, I just want the hypnotic effect of it somehow seeming significant without knowing why." - Len Lye

Is that when you cut off your ear?

I love how L.A. people automatically like to point people to Amoeba Music... it really sucks monkey nuts if you consider other alternatives... I reccomend Record Surplus on Pico Blvd in West LA, House of Records, also on Pico in Santa Monica, and Record Rover on Venice Blvd in Mar Vista... go there instead of Amoeba, and you'll find the best selection and prices on vinyl, and you won't have some freaky looking clerks helping you... and the lines are MUCH shorter...

Isn't there a bigger thread for this? Oh well, hi yall! Been a while.

Anywho, recently I've been buying shitloads of great vinyls... Especially the reissues that have been expanded on two vinyls rather one. That alone is just brilliant!

I'm just interested if this major bump of this thread can generate a wee discussion and if someone else has any nice stories. My favorite purchase by far is the four disc (?) vinyl release of the instrumental version of Nine Inch Nails "The Fragile".
