Oh yeah... I am checking Amazon too. For the most part, they all seem to be nearly identical in pricing for the titles I have been looking for. I ordered the 2011 Remastered release of The Dark Side Of The Moon from Amazon UK for a supposedly superior pressing to that of the US.

It always seems that way. British Pressings of early Beatles and Rolling Stones Records often fetch a considerable amount more than their US counterparts. The Vinyl resurgence over the past decade has been a wonderful thing as the iPod Kids are starting to get exposed to proper AV Components.

I use Amazon, also a local shop to me Rockbox are online and do a selection.
The recording / mixing / mastering are very important in the process but good qual vinyl does have a great feel to it and usually very rewarding to play.

I will add SoundStageDirect.com to the list. Great customer service.

I do buy some from Amazon but they are not vinyl people. The last album I purchased came in a box just a bit small. It put tension on the vinyl and ended up warping the record.

Elusive Disc has always been very reliable imo. They have good products and if there is an issue, they tend to resolve it quite nicely.
On WYWH I have not really heard a great vinyl version. At least when comparing to the British Import of DSOM. I have the SACD and it is pretty good, no problems with limiters etc, but it seems you were looking for vinyl and I have not really helped.

Good Listening

I wanted to pick up the Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here 180g vinyl, but the reviews of it on vinyl are horrid. Looks like I might get the SACD instead.
I was wondering where you get that the reviews are horrid.

Most all of these are 5 star.
