  Red Devil Records, San Rafael, CA

If you are one of the rare people who still has a working turntable, this store is for you. Red Devil carries a sizeable collection of used LPs. They have a few used CDs, too, that can be picked up for $5.99 to $7.99 each. Red Devil also sells new releases, but you'll have to pay full retail, which is hard to do, considering you never have to pay full retail if you go to Virgin Records, Borders or buy through

What to buy: Check out the used section. You just might find that CD you've been hoping to pick up somewhere, if you get lucky.

Don't use your cell phone in the CD store! There is a sign on the window that says "Cell phone MUST be turned off when inside." I started to go outside to call my husband to ask him about a Rolling Stones and an Indigo Girls CD, and the sales person told me not to worry, that sign was up there only because the owner, a much older guy, hated cell phones and wouldn't let any of the customers use one inside. The sales person assured me he was cool about it and I could call hubby from the inside.
