I'd been to the Hollywood location and felt on my recent visit to San Francisco I'd check out this one. I wish I hadn't. Not because it's bad but I had to stop myself after only going through the S and T used CD clearance sections. If I didn't, I would've walked out with 100 CDs easily. Unlike a lot of other record stores (or should I say, the ones left) the used section isn't chock full of only titles you've never heard of but tons of albums by main stream artists as well. You want to pick up the I.R.S. R.E.M. albums? Good chance you'll find them. Looking for some Dylan? They're there. Such an awesome selection. Like I said, I had to stop myself. I was traveling and didn't want to be buying things to take home. It was hard. The prices can't be beat. Clearance CDs for $1 or $2 plus Buy, I think, four get the fifth free. Just the best. I wish Amoeba had moved into the spot vacated by Virgin in Times Square when they had the chance. That would've made my day, week, year.
