    Huge record store right on Sunset. Always has the newest and most hard to find selection. Never disappointed with the shopping/looking/listening experience. -Alex Reznik, Top Chef

    The stores in San Francisco and Hollywood have a modest selection of new and used video-games for current generation systems. This store is a playable venue in the music game, Guitar Hero: World Tour.

    By as huge as LA’s biggest music store is, you’d think MP3s had never been invented. You can find EVERYTHING here: CDs, LPs, memorabilia, some of Hollywood’s best people watching. [Racked 38 Member] Read more

    This place has the coolest music in the world – now is not the time to add to your disco collection. #DontBlowIt

    Given all the music created in Los Angeles, it’s mind-boggling that there’s still only one place you really need to go to buy tunes in this town. This Mecca of music occupies an entire city block.

    You can get everything you need - records, movies, posters, everything! Always try the used section first. People trade in the BEST (and new) stuff!

    Arguably the best nostalgia shop in Los Angeles. You can buy "CDs" here! Additionally, live acts cruise through and play short, free sets.

    I grew up in record stores like this one. I buy most of my music online these days, but there’s always a rare find in the bins or a cool music show to catch. - Darryl Stephens, DTLA - The Series

    Tom McK · October 5, 2010

    The largest independent music store still has the cool and hip vibe that it had since it opened in the 90s. Ask anything about music to the staff, and you’ll get that CD you’re looking for. · September 20, 2011
  • AskMen

    The record turnover rate is just so insane. You can check the new arrivals, then shop for an hour and come back and they're all different. Read more

    There's always a cheap vinyl bin - get away with a $5-10 shopping "spree!"

    Check out the used CD/DVD section, then stroll over to the jazz section. This is one of my favorite places to shop in LA.

    Like concert posters? Burrow around in the bins for anything from Janis Joplin at The Whiskey Go Go to Eagles of Death Metal at The Mayan. Also the occasional and irreverent "Golden Girls" print.

    Being an english import myself great to pick up some UK series & movies on DVD. You will need region 2 DVD player to play.

    Great selection! I bought a bunch of good used CDs. And I had a very easy time finding parking which is always a huge plus in LA! :)

    They consistently play horrible music over the PA as you shop. Always.

    Check out the clearance rock section for sweet prices, I like picking up CDs with cool covers for a buck and trying my luck

    Bring in old CD's, DVD's, Blu-Rays, LP's, etc. to trade in. Get store credit, use it to pay for your items, and you'll walk out not a penny poorer.

    If you ever see an artist perform at our venue and you have to get the music right away... cruise down to Amoeba and get it. You'll love the place, they have everything.

    Aside from the exhaustive selection and über-knowledgeable staff, perks include reasonable prices (often times you can find what you want used) and nifty CD listening stations. Read more · October 16, 2011
