I am a huge record collector and usually I get my records from Half Price books, and they usually have a good selection, but what other places do you know, maybe bookstores, or music stores where they sell good cheap records?

Great! That's exactly the kind of place I'm looking for, but are you sure you're not sending me to a bad place LOL, I have that happened to me before. It wasn't pretty, someone told me about "this place" I almost got killed haha.

There was a couple vendors I remember years ago that had a huge collection of books and records, They may not be there anymore but im sure youll find something if you look.

Bussey's flea market has a few vendors with lots of vinyl. The Antique Mall on Nacogdoches Rd has a good selection too. Also, the Gigante Flea Mart on I-35 between Eisenhauer and Walzem has (or used to) a guy with a whole lot of rare vinyl.

Hogwild has records but it is mostly new dance music for djs i believe. Alot of Dance singles are only relesed on records like janet jackson and stuff like that.

Alamo Records at 125 Broadway St. There supposed to have one of the largest of vintage vinyl. If you don't find what you want there I'm sure you'll find plenty of other second hand stores around there. There is also a Half Price Books north on Broadway close to the Witte Museum.

I went to Bussey's a couple times already, they have some good stuff, but overall the prices aren't anything to brag about. I will try Alamo Records next, but I expect high prices. Will report back though.
