    Vinyl, what's that? [​IMG]
    I don't know about California, but your best bet would probably be local used music stores. Here in the NE area, I can't think of anywhere - well, perhaps Newbury Comics still sells some things in vinyl.

    Pink Floyd, except for the occasional reissue, would typically only be found in used stores. I would check the Yellow Pages for used record stores in the area.

    Rasputin's might have it. Give them a call.
    Tower may be able to order it for you.
    I used to get my vinyl at Star Records in San Jose, but I don't know if they are still around. Let me ask my DJ buddies, they know all the cool small places to get vinyl. [​IMG] As noted, you are probably looking at used though...

    Chris,
    Have you tried Ameoba Records, or Rasputin's in Berkeley? They're on Telegraph Ave, and have a very large selection of used records. Amoeoba also sells new vinyl from all of the reissue labels as well.

    Good Luck!

    Here in Los Angeles, there is a very celebrated specialty shop that stocks vintage vinyl LPs exclusively, called The Record Collector, on Melrose Avenue. The man who owns and operates the story focuses on serious music primarily, though he does have small jazz and pop-music selections.

    If anybody's in the market for some of the great Mercury Living Presence series of recordings with the Minnesota Orchestra under the direction of Antal Dorati, go to The Record Collector with plenty of cash.

    There are HMV stores in the US. Or maybe there is just one [​IMG] It is in Cambridge, MA in Harvard Square - unless it has shut its doors recently. A few of the big UK/Ireland stores set up shop over in Boston in the '90s. HMV was one of them.

    Rockaway Records in LA,CA and in Mesa, AZ deals in vinyl and has a Ebay store.They are good guys to deal with. Here in Vegas, Record City still pushes alot of vinyl, common and rare stuff. Eight locations city wide. You should have come by my place last month. I gave away over 2000 LP records. I had all the Pink Floyd releases up to the Final Cut on LP including the half speed of Dark Side of the Moon.I seem to recall that I paid almost 35$ for that one and that was alot of money for me in 1984.

    Chris, A greatest hits compilation was released a few months ago and I know where you can pick it up new, sealed.
    The Analog Room at 1416 Fruitdale avenue(at Meridian)
    971-6158, closed Sun-Mon. Echoes costs $50 on vinyl and it is a digitally remaster of their past work, a 4 LP Box Set, very nice packaging. I own it and it sounds pretty good for being digitally mastered.
    Also, if you go to The Analog Room, check out their gear, they have the best selection of TT's, Tube gear I have seen. [​IMG] Ask Brian or Chris to spin Side 1 of DSOTM on 1 of their rigs, I'm sure they would be glad to do that for you, and don't forget to bring some cash! [​IMG]
