  • Vinyl Stores in LA

    Heading over to Los Angeles tomorrow for a long weekend. Any stores I should visit to look for and buy some LPs?

    Thx!

        Brooks Berdan downsized considerably and gave back half their space, the big vinyl room is long gone.

        LA is huge geographically, lots of ifs...do you have a rental car or are you ubering it? the vinyl district app is worth while if you're on a tight schedule and want to stay close in, o'wise you risk wasting most of the day stuck in traffic.

            Not a "record store" in the traditional sense, but if you have time, reach out to Jeff Gold at RecordMecca. I don't know if he is appointment only, but he sells crazy collectible stuff: Jimi Hendrix master tapes, Jim Morrison's diary from Paris, Bob Dylan acetates from the '60s. He was in in the industry, and also mainlines first pressings of the big ticket records: Odyssey & Oracle, Turquoise LZ 1s, etc. Every once in a while, there is an inexpensive jewel among the king's ransom, but he's very nice, and knowledgeable. Not exactly bin diving, more like going to King Tut's tomb (if the Pharaoh had been a record collector).

              I never heard of Jeff, he's in Venice which means he probably works out of his house. Found this on him: http://www.dustandgrooves.com/jeff-gold-venice-ca/

                  Also very useful to find some overlooked record stores:

                  Kronos Sparta -> Trinity Phono -> Trinity Pre -> CH Precision A1 -> Magico S7s
