Amoeba Music review Rate it

Amoeba Music remains a mighty presence. It's partly a matter of scale - 25,000sq ft (2,325sq m) of former bowling alley, to be exact - but mainly a matter of breadth: there's every imaginable type of music, both new and used, the vast majority priced very fairly, as well as a massive DVD selection. The Berkeley branch used to be the stronger of the two, but the SF store now pips it. There are free gigs, too, with some surprisingly big names. The store also recently launched its own imprint: one of its first releases was a 1969 concert by Gram Parsons and the Flying Burrito Brothers at SF's Avalon Ballroom.
