Throughout the U.S. there are numerous sources for buying CDs, vinyl and tapes. Many of these stores have online ordering, too. While the info on this page is tailored to the person who wants to buy girl-group music, most of these stores, if not all, simply have a great selection of all oldies music.

Record stores that are known to have a website include the listing. For any corrections, additions, or recommendations, please email us at: Buying Music List. In addresses, the zip code is included only when known. Remember that to find directions to a specific address you can always go to Details about the stores and/or websites themselves are included where known.

Since many of these are small, independent stores, it is recommended that you try their website first, rather than call, if they have a website. Do research online if you're unsure of titles and songs. It can be a burden on small staffs to have to talk on the phone about what you're looking for--they might be waiting on customers.

Special thanks to those who helped with the creation of this list: John Grecco, John Clemente, Tony Leong, Frampton Tolbert, David Young, Jimmy Crescitelli, and Louis Wendruck.

How to Understand Gradings of Vinyl

M, Mint
      Perfect. Price might only be slightly higher than near-mint because even some "new" items are not completely flawless. A never-played piece of vinyl could have an occasional pop or click because of its manufacture. Original wrapping can be a sign of mint, but be cautious. It's not impossible to shrink-wrap or perfectly seal a used item.

NM, Near Mint
      Nearly perfect, excellent condition. Should not have any visible scratches or wear and tear, including on the label

VG, Very Good
      Has a minimum of audible or visible imperfections, although there might be some slight wear that is noticeable. The label will likely have some imperfection, but won't be seriously marred.

G, Good
      This is probably the classification with the most leniency, so take care with this description. There will likely be signs of wear on the label and vinyl, although the record should play through without skipping. (If skipping happens on much of your vinyl, remember that it could be your turntable's needle.)

F, Fair
      Somewhere in between "good" and "poor," so only get these if you're desperate or until you can find a better copy of the same record.

P, Poor
      Collect these only if it's a song unavailable elsewhere. You might to try to play it on a secondary, inexpensive turntable as the vinyl will be scratched and marred. Remember that "poor" can even mean the label is torn off.

      Some classifications will add a plus or minus for a finer gradation, such as VG+ or VG-. This doesn't mean much except perhaps in the case of VG+. You will not likely find this classification used for Fair or Poor recordings.
