I've probably walked by that place many times, but I don't think I've ever eaten there.

Similar to another comment somewhere, I recall opening finding a Clapton album with a half smoked joint between the sleeves.

Oops, West Village, not East.  It was an interesting shop; a lot of different celebrities and famous musicians would come in there sometimes...

I’ve got this friend, see, who knows everything about music from being in the biz. His vinyl place - Groover’s Paradise - is in Austin and there’s not as much foot traffic there.

Here’s his latest video showing some of the new arrivals.

 
Good guy.

He and we who actively buy and sell vinyl are having their world turned upside down right now with a huge change taking place at Discogs.com.  They are completely changing the platform and making it much harder on the seller to conduct a real and honest business over there.

Discogs is perhaps the largest platform in the world for cataloging and selling music of all kinds.  The changes proposed there will make it tougher on everyone involved who buys and sells hard copies of music.

If curious, this thread over there is where the primary discussion is going on.  It has commanded my attention the past several days.  Those here who use Ebay and other platforms might be curious to see what is going on over there as well.  Ebay and its problems are being cited in the discussion as well.

Cool! It depends on condition and content. Best thing is to look up the same LP's on ebay completed listings and see what they have been selling for.

I also got into CD's when they first came out I paid over $700.00 for the first one the Sony CDP-101 that sounded like HorseSh*t and quit working as soon as it was out of warranty.

I remember I only had about 50 CD rock titles to choose from when I bought it and they all listed for $17.99 when records were generally less than half that. 11 of those first CD's I bought no longer play even though they were always stored properly. 

 



I like to listen to vinyl every so often, even my old tapes, just for that old, nostalgic sound. Yes it is warmer, yet the shape of my records and my analog system cant compete with my digital system. After the untimely death of SACD and DVD-A (at least i dont think they make DVDA anymore), High Res downloads are growing and looks like it may have a promising future...although I still balk at the relatively high prices (did you see the stones relaunch in High Res: https://www.hdtracks.com/index.php?file=stones $30 for download?). I just hope more artists/retailers realize there are many folks who are not satisfied with MP3, or redbook CDs for that matter.

I sold a good many of mine too...but not all of them. I also sold some great classic stuff that I thought I'd never listen to again, when I was first into new wave alt-rock....the horror!
