Yoshi's Discography

This is a discography of albums recorded at Yoshi's in Berkeley, Oakland and San Francisco.

Yoshi's was originally, in the 1970's, a Japanese restaurant based in Berkeley. At the end of the 1970's Yoshi's moved to larger premises on Claremont Avenue in Berkeley and started featuring live music. Yoshi's moved to it's current location, at Jack London Square in Oakland, in 1997. A second Yoshi's opened in San Francisco in 2007 but closed in 2014.
