Amoeba the Best Music Store in the US, Says Rolling Stone



Speaking of record stores, Rolling Stone has named Amoeba the top record store in the country (thanks, Berkeleyside.) Says RS:

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.

Also, Seattle and Chicago are kicking our butts. No other Bay Area stores are listed.
