Vinyl Solution was a record store in Tuscaloosa from 1980 to 2004. George Hadjidakis opened the store at 502 13th Avenue, then moved it to 1207 University Boulevard in 1986.

Hadjidakis hosted a Tuesday night radio program on WUAL-FM in the early 1980s, contributed to a fanzine entitled "Bleeder's Digest", and partnered with Bruce Hopper of The Chukker to book up and coming bands to perform in Tuscaloosa.

Vinyl Solution closed on May 26, 2004 in the face of higher rents and the rise of downloaded music.

The store's sign is preserved at Egan's Bar.
