Taz remains ground zero for the local music retail scene, having won both Best Retail and Best Second-hand Record store again this year. Vinyl fiends will be thrilled to hear they’re selling a lot of the format, including a recent reissue of The GZA’s *Liquid Swords,* Nirvana’s *Nevermind* deluxe box set, the new LP from Bad Vibrations, Noyes Records’ seven-inch singles series and, just in, the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ *I’m With You,* now on the big black circle. Of course, there are still plenty of CDs and other music-enjoyment paraphenelia to be found, too.
