At 8am on Saturday, April 16th, crowds began to line up in front of the Berkeley store. They came to get their hands on the hundreds of new and exclusive records released on this year's 4th Annual Record Store Day.

In the first hour of being open, the "Broadway" aisle of the store was jam packed with people picking up 7-inches, LPs and even select 10-inches from the likes of 13th Floor Elevators, Big Star, The Rolling Stones, Nirvana, Grinderman, Phish, Wild Flag, The Beach Boys, as well as countless more from the hottest names in music, past and present.

But Rock 'N' Roll wasn't the only thing Amoeba Berkeley brought to Record Store Day this year. We also debuted a GIGANTIC used Jazz collection, filled with near mint original pressings from Horace Silver, Hank Mobley, Jackie McLean and literally thousands more! No matter what kind of music you were into on Saturday, we had what you wanted!

Amoeba was THE destination for Record Store Day events as well! At noon we had the legendary Al Jardine from the Beach Boys play a few songs and tell a few stories about the old days recording Smile and Pet Sounds. Al brought with him an exclusive 7-inch record to benefit the Red Cross' Japan relief effort. He ended up raising over $1,000 for the organization and thrilled long time fans by signing copies!
