I have Group Sex on picture disc. It cost me around $20 I think.

New records in a legit record store will probably cost anywhere from $15 to $30 depending on the album. Used records can be as cheap as $5 or so, and you can find some decent stuff in good condition if you're willing to spend some time hunting.

Sometimes people run distros and order records to sell at shows. They're usually quite a bit cheaper, and tend to have stuff you cant always find at other places. $10 per LP is the usual price from what I've seen, but sometimes cheaper.

You might find this website useful:
You can type in artist/title/date/country and some other info and it'll tell you whether it can find anything.

i'd try your local record stores first. and watch out for re-releases, they try to pull some serious bull**** sometimes, like the Dookie reissue for $20, and its not worth more than 10. also, keep an eye out for new releases and try and get the 1st issue color vinyl, they can end up being worth something if they're limited ed. like my bosstones impossible dream on white vinyl, only 500 pressed apparently

Look locally before you go online. You'd be surprised at how many old stores will have stacks of records laying around.

We have a shop here called CDs For Less. Thay have about 1000+ $4 vinyls and vintage, reissue, and new vinyl. They have probably 2000+ vinyls and 500 CDs. Haha. The irony of it is great.

I got Get Yer Ya-Yas Out by The Rolling Stones (1970 original) for $4, Smash Hits (1971 original)- Jimi Hendrix $4, and Golden Shower of Hits by the Circle Jerks (1983 original release in packaging unopened) for $30.

No prob, you're still a newbie. :p:

Just use the search engine before posting a new thread to make sure it hasn't been made before.
