Best Place to Buy Vinyl

My Mind's Eye

Charles Chebl's cramped, cluttered storefront is a vinylphile's glorious scavenger hunt. In the center of the shop is a huge bin of recently released albums, priced between $5 (a Fireworks LP) and $18.25 (Embryo's live release). Along the back wall, a field day awaits those into rifling through shelves of albums and 45s from the '60s and '70s, which sell for as little as 25 cents. The store's most expensive items? A four-CD Hendrix boxed set and a lockbox of Grand Funk Railroad CDs that includes a guitar pick and 3-D glasses. They go for 57 bucks apiece.
