I snagged my parents old turntable around 6 months ago, and I've been picking up vinyl every now and again since. I'm looking for a good repository of data on what's good that's out, and what's coming out. There's a used record shop near me, and I pick up new stuff at Hot Topic occasionally...but it's hard to know what to get when I see it.

Any help would be great. TIA!

Lots of vinyl fans at Steve Hoffman's audiophile forum.

lots of links there, and its good for music in general too.

I'm not sure about new vinyl, but, I have gone to www.alibris.com to research old vinyl. Domestic, imports, cd's, books. Nice source.

Some places to look at for buying stuff..

I got my 30th Anniversary Edition LP of The Dark Side of the Moon at Acoustic Sounds.

Red Trumpet is another good source for albums - it seems they carry more mainstream vinyl releases.

www.gemm.com is a good database of new/used music with a virtual catalog of used LP stores all over the world - sort of an ebay for music.

Where is a good place to sell vinyl? Mostly 80's rock?

What a coincidence, I was browsing at Hot Topic today and picked up a copy of DSotM 30th Ann. for $15. Just listened to the first side, and damn it sounds good.

Thanks for the suggestions, guys. Keep the discussion coming Posted Image

If there's no place local for you, then eBay might be your best bet.

I've won a few LP's there myself, although it can be a real crap shoot - you just have to know what to look for and how to ask for specifics.
