Every year Record Store Day just gets bigger and bigger, and the craziness grows! Here in SF before we opened the line was INSANE outside our doors and the first person in line had been there since 6am! That's some dedication! Even more astounding, customers were calling Friday night and asking if they could camp out for prime spots on the big day!

At 10:30am on the button, the doors were opened and people swarmed into the treasure-laden vinyl aisles of Amoeba SF. There were hoardes of people packing the rows and surrounding the 7"s. Watch an awesome video below shot by Audra of the line and the vibe before the doors were flung open!

Jazz LP Explosion on Record Store Day at Amoeba Berkeley

Posted by The Bay Area Crew, April 12, 2011 02:37pm | Post a Comment

In addition to our usual Record Store Day shenanigans (over 250 exclusive RSD releases!!), Amoeba Berkeley will be unveiling a huge used jazz LP collection that we recently acquired from a private collector!

Many original pressings in excellent/near mint condition will be featured, including many late '50s/early '60s hard bop/ soul jazz/avant garde titles on Blue Note, Prestige, Riverside, Pacific Jazz, Contemporary, Atlantic, and Columbia. There are also many interesting titles we don't see every day (especially in this condition) from the '70s and '80s. So, overall, something for just about any jazz aficionado to be excited about! See you at the store this Saturday!

Join us for an evening celebrating the height of Romanticism on Friday, April 15 at The Oakland East Bay Symphony. Beginning at 8pm, enjoy two vastly different works from two eras and regions of the world with Fade to Orange by bandleader, composer and drummer Scott Amendola.

The Los Angeles Times said, “Amendola's music is consistently engaging, both emotionally and intellectually, the product of a fertile and inventive musical imagination.” More info here.
