    May's a good time for visiting A'dam and for record shopping.

    A couple of stores with new and used records:
    Concerto, Utrechtsestraat: a wide variety of music (jazz, rock, folk, classical), nice used records section.
    Fame, in the basement of Mediamarkt, next to central station: mainly CD's, cheap for Box sets. Always great offers.
    Velvet Music, Rozengracht: a nice, small shop with helpful and friendly staff
    Record Friend, Sint Antoniesbreestraat: almost exclusively vinyl, two seperate shops for used and new. Impressive selection. Expensive.

    In the last years a couple of new shops have opened, all carrying used product.
    This website has most of them.

    Are you looking for anything in particular, (he asked curiously)?

    Hope this is helpful.
    Cheers, Sq.

    Shouldn't be too hard to find some nice German or UK pressings for the bands you mention.
    And most Dutch pressings are quite good as well.
    So happy shopping!
