    Default Vinyl records

    So, I've recently discovered I have a love for vinyl. I enjoy the sense of rarity in a record, and it puts me in the mood to listen to a whole album. I also like how it's a better collector's item than cds. Does anyone else share this interest? I'm trying to buy as many new records as I can, but I'll buy used if they're in good condition. Which reminds me, is there any site I can go to in order to order new records (besides eBay or something. Like a specialty store), or do I just have to be on the hunt for them or ask the store to special order if they're willing? I've bought two Offspring, a Pennywise, and a Misfits album thus far. I'm hoping to make my collection a lot more diverse than punk records, of course, but I've found with vinyl you just have to get what's available or affordable. New records can be a steal (found a new Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace for six bucks. the cover was a little dinged, but it was still unopened), or fairly expensive (White Stripes' latest album went for 30.00).

    If you buy them off eBay they're more than likely remakes. If you want originals, try stores like Junkman's Son and stuff like that.

    Ah, thanks a lot. People can remake records? Like with the same cover and everything?

    Are you talking about repressing records?

    Um, I guess so? Like making an illegal copy of a record. Can people do it and make it look the same as the original? I didn't think it was something that people did.

    I've thought about switching over to vinyl on a few occasions, but i just don't feel like replacing all of my cds: seems like a lot of cash.

    You know you can have both?

    I guess it is possible, but the marked for vinyl records is so slim that it is not a common practice, if it is at all. If the record is sealed and has the brand of the record label, I think you're safe.

    Cds are kind of going out, and records are a sort of classical thing to own. I just prefer collecting them.

    You mean you don't play them? I started with vinyl when most of the music I listen to didn't exist on CD.
