your last lp purchase at a 'normal' record store

Was trying to recall when and where I picked up my last piece of vinyl at a 'standard' record store back in the day.

Of course since I've bought a ton used and I know new releases come out all the time on vinyl, but I mean a record store just before CD's took over and the records were relegated to '2nd string' status.

For me, I think it was the brand new Jane's Addiction Nothing's Shocking album - -I'd read a review and it sounded like the hot new thing. I remember being in the store and noticing that their vinyl supply was dwindling, as if they weren't restocking. Soon after that, there were CD's in the vinyl racks.

Sound about right time-wise, as well.

Do you remember when it first hit you, standing in a record store, that records were going to no longer be the music-listening staple they were?
