Rolling Stone picks the Best Record Stores in the USA: The top 25 spots for unique vinyl and CDs, from San Francisco to Boston -- and we're on the list!

Amoeba Music
San Francisco, Hollywood, Berkeley

"Even in the days when record-store chains ruled the music world, nothing compared to Amoeba. It was, and is, simply the most thorough and welcoming place a record lover could hope to shop. Each of its three stores features more than 100,000 items — much of it surprisingly high-grade, and with loads of surprises and rarities around seemingly every corner. Which, as anyone who's been to any of them can tell you, is a lot of corners."

Thanks Rolling Stone and thanks to all of you for the continued love and support!
