Fodor's Review

Touted as the "World's Largest Independent Record Store," Amoeba is a playground for music-lovers, with a knowledgeable staff and a focus on local artists. Catch in-store appearances by artists and bands that play sold-out shows at venues down the road. Find a rich stock of new and used CDs and DVDs, LPs, and 45s, an impressive cache of collectibles, and walls filled with concert posters.

I Swear They Have Everything!

You can always find something you are looking for at a nice price, choosing between new and used. The amazingly knowledgeable staff will tell you about anything that they don't have, why they don't have it and when and if they will. Always a delightful shopping experience, I have never once left empty handed!
