Hi Everyone, I may be behind the times as many are probably aware of this....but you can get both new and used vinyl through Amazon. If you have prime then many are free shipping as well. I just got the latest Neil Young Live At The Cellar Door that way. I'll let you know how it sounds when I get to listen to it.

Good listening
Bruce

I have never purchased vinyl from Am. I have a great LP shop 30mins drive from me for both new and used.

Good value. Your first Wagner?

Yes. It had a gold seal on the outside of the packaging. I can't remember what it meant, if it was a master or remastered copy... I need to listen to it!

I was at a local chain for National Record Store Day (April 19th) and picked up The Rolling Stones Hot Rocks 1964-1971. Mostly because I watched "20 Feet from Stardom" and when I heard Merry Clayton's vocals isolated from the rest of the song, I was washed over with emotion. I've needed it on vinyl since then.

Hot Rocks is a great LP. Some Girls is also good.

Good listening
