    Jive Time is small but specializes in used vinyl, so here is always plenty to choose from. My personal favorite is Easy Street Records over in West Seattle. I'd describe their selection as a bit more premium, with a great mix of new and used.

    i don't know, easy street has been a bit of a let down for me in recent years. they really overprice the used stuff. i miss the queen anne location.

    looks like i need to check out jive time again as i've not been in for over 10 years. still not sure i'd pay $30 for skylarking though!

    yeah... I have a bit of buyer's remorse because I realize they did an Abbey Road remaster from the original master tapes and created a 45rpm 2LP version and a 1 LP 33rpm version... You can choose from either. BOTH editions contain "Dear God" and "Mermaid Smiles". My version omits "Mermaid Smiled" and has the backwards polarity no one was happy with. It was just the nicest Near Mint and in tight, clean shrink and I got caught up in that... "I may never find it like this again" sort of thing... Haven't you ever felt that?

    Quick update, Easy Street right now has 5 bins of nice condition post-punk, industrial, krautrock, prog, synth-pop, goth and various 80s for sale, quite an amazing selection! (who just sold off their collection?). You don't often seen copies of Return of The Durutti Column (in the sandpaper sleeve) in the used bins...my budget would only allow a nostalgia purchase of the 12" of "Up The Down Elevator" by The Chameleons, which I used to own many years ago.
