    Default Buying Vinyl

    Hopefully this is in the right place and its a fair question to ask ?

    For a long while I have been taking vinyl mainly from charity shops and the odd independant when travelling (charity shops have long since dried up around here).

    The reason for asking, is that recently I've been looking for a number of 180gm's remastered albums. Frustratingly, the suppliers i looked at were out of stock of ALL of them ! and they seem to take ages to replenish and I'm not interested in imported stuff either. Plus, with previous orders, approximately 50% of all new vinyl has been returned as its been pants.

    I've mainly used Amazon (very good at returns but bad at describing the release details) and WhatRecords (some good offers but constantly having stock issues it seems to me).

    So, I'm looking to try someone new but recommended ie reliable suppliers/independents who do mail order; who seem to carry good stock and importantly are good with returns.

    All suggestions gratefully received ta !

    Burning Shed are pretty good. Not a big range of artists stocked but good service both during purchase and after.

    Juno Records are good too

    I buy from Amazon, eBay, Cherry Red records, Burning Shed, record shops and quite often directly from the artists website.

    I've bought a bunch of stuff from Juno this year, but the return rate has been about 30% due to warped vinyl, mis-pressing, labels in the wrong place, etc. Juno have been very good and quick to replace.

    Of the Amazon sellers, I find Assai tend to have the best packaging and so vinyl turns up in good nick. They have a web store too assai-records. Much more limited stock though.

    Oh, I do sometimes buy from Discogs but I don’t buy a lot of second hand stuff - and I only buy records (vinyl).
