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.
