This color film captures one of Tower Records flagship stores, located on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood. Tower Records was founded in 1960 in Sacramento and became an international business before closing in 2006. The record store helped revolutionize the music industry. Stacks of wax everywhere – sort of like today’s Costco – but instead of candy bars and Hot Pockets- you had music from Elton John, Linda Ronstadt and Joe Cocker And those 8-tracks tho– Wow. If appreciate history, you’re definitely going to dig this. The film was made by Sacramento City College professor Darrell Forney and shows customers shopping in the store in the evening.
