    Who here still buys vinyl? I do. There is this little local store that I shop at that is sort of a "retro" thrift store. They sell records of all genres, from classic rock to jazz, 45s, 33s, and even a few 78s (which I don't use) for reasonable prices.

    If you do collect and still buy vinyl, tell us all what your most "prized" albums are and how much you payed for them.

    My most prized would have to be my 33RPM Lynyrd Skynyrd "Second Helping" that I got for $6.

    I only buy them for display/collecting really. My favourite is my "Oasis - Definitely Maybe" heavywight double vinyl - cost me £23.

    @JohnnySK @daconcerror - Awesome!

    Im just starting to get into vinyl and collecting them, so hopefully I'll get some more rarer records soon. The store I go to always has some good finds. They have The Beatles' "Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band" album for like $60. It's in MINT condition. Probably won't buy it, but still, that's cool.

    I have a pretty nice player (direct drive! woo!) and a pretty good Pink Floyd collection that my dad gave me.

    That's about all.
