I collect vinyl and am always on the look out for good stuff. Went into an antique store yesterday and came out with,

Grateful Dead, Wake of the Flood and Workingmans Dead plus Europe 72 all in prestine condition.

Also The Who Tommy, Hotel California, Led Zepplin 3 and 4, Jimi Hendrix and Otis Redding from Monteray (awesome!) and of course an unopened Eat a Peach

All in fantastic shape and paid 40.00

Cant beat that with a bat!!

Eirpoe 72 actual records are prestine, the front cover in very good shape, it is white so it is a bit discolored but no tears. Tri fold and book intact!

Was this antique store in NYC?

I am not a collector, but I actually want to get a vinyl Eat a Peach. My kids are big into art and drawing and I want to show them the inside of the album. The cd just doesn't do it justice.

Like I posted----Double Cool! Love that album. Kids these days will never know the joy of tri-folds or concept albums (ie. Muscule Of Love with the stain on the bottom).

While I am on that roll----the red see-through J. Geils 'Bloodshot' album; the 3-sided Second Winter....

I miss those days.

Nothing like sitting down and playing a record from start to finish. The cd era has lost that. Its now too easy to jump from song to song where as the record almost forces you to listen fron to back. Really gives you an appreciation of the song placement.

Also just bought a limted press release of the remastered Song Remains the Same. Very nice. Had a 70% off coupon for Barnes and Noble online and was able to grab it for 17.00

I still have a lot of my vinyl at my parents house. I love going down the basement and listening to the albums while reading the inside of the albums. They still have the same stereo from when we grew up too. It has a turn table, cassette player and an 8 track deck. I think I still have a few 8 tracks too. A few weekends ago I was going through these:

Garage sales have always been my best source. One problem for me is that I'm trying to replace a lot of Beatles albums. Seems people are still holding onto them like the gold they are!

A year ago I scored 250+ albums in pristine collector condition from the wife of the poor departed chap. Almost all what you scored. Complete collections by artist. She might as well have gave them to me for what I paid at 50 cents each. If I was selling it is a grand or more in ebay value. He had every insert and poster virgin. I want to frame a few, the Hendric and Experience in western garb on horses is killer.

watch the estate sales and yard and garage sales and thrift rag ads. Lotttsa crummy condition records out there so never get excited until you see them.

Antique store hopping in Seattle this past weekend, found Last Days of the Filmore on Vinyl (box set) and an Original Big Brother & the holding company.

All for $35.00 yankee bucks, not really cheap but "the last days" is a great find for my collection.

It was a fluke that I found the last days as I had looked through all the stacks and looked behind one stack and Wham-o there it was. I was pumped.

Love finding the nuggets.

I've seen quite a few Eat a Peach albums in record stores, I don't think it should be hard to find one! Jim I' sure your kids will appreciate it!

Ditto. Pretty common around these parts...

It is the insert to the LS 'Street Survivors' that is valuable to some.

I finally last year had a place here in Harrisburg, PA called Walker Art & Framing build a frame for me for the inside cover of Eat A Peach, which proudly hangs on the same wall as the back cover of the first album framed

Man, I love Bloodshot and the 3 sided JW...and had a girlfriend once who drew the inner cover of EAP to detail on a tee shirt for me...damn that was cool. "Gee that Old LaSalle ran great, those were the days". Man I miss those days so so so much...none of today's pressure/stress, didn't have to take Prilosec (although it might've helped the occasional hangover ) such a fun, care free era. Ya know? Put 6 albums on, just relax and enjoy the pictures and music.

Great find. A couple weeks ago I bought the quad-fold Yessongs and gate-fold Relayer for 3 bucks each at a discount book strore, mostly for the cover art. I think I'll pick up a turntable over the holidays and get into vinyl listening again.
