Record stores in L.A

Oh well.Enough said.
Hi all

Finally i'm all set to head to L.A. after a ticket scare.
Can anyone let me know any record stores that might be worth checking out.
I am staying in Pasadena and of course will be in the Hollywood area as well.

Thanks in advance.

well, there's the 2 virgin mega stores. one is one hollywood and highland, then there's one on sunset (i dont remember its cross street.)

there's amoeba music. it's down the street from the palladium. they have new and used movies, c.d.s records. they have an incredible selection of posters also.

if you have time, check out melrose ave. starting from la brea to about... i think fairfax. there are all sorts or interesting stores on that street.

i can't think of any others at the moment, but i'm dure that there are tins more.

dito that! I used to go to KAOS when it was hot Rocks, i used to have al my past gf's get me gift certificates from them, it was the only record store worth it to get them at. I moved out of SGV a few years back, and I dont go in there anymore. Now it's prety much all about Amoeba and the Virgin on Sunset. I find the Highland one over crowded with tourist.

~Melrose music on Melrose is ok.
~Second Spin in Santa Monica is prety cool.
