    Well, the South Bay, has a few too, but, for new vinyl is Rasputin's
    Music (also in Berkely and SF) which also go a little overboard on
    the rapping of their records. Also on Bascom in San Jose/Cambell is
    Streetlight, with a huge selection of used vinyl and CDs. But, I
    mostly comb through the last vinyl section in any Tower I know of in
    Mountain View of all places. Also wander around the SoFA area of San
    Jose and there are a few record stores hidden around--I found the DJ
    Food Jazz Breaks 4 & 5 down there.
