Tower Records: Documentary

Documentary about the Rise and Fall of Tower Records (+Video)

Mark Frauenfelder | September 6, 2015

I loved Tower Records. Not for the records (though I bought a lot of them there), but for the tremendous book and zine section. That's where I discovered Re/Search books and a tons of great obscure periodicals. It pains me whenever I see the crappy boring businesses that now occupy the former Tower Records store locations in Los Angeles.

Tower Records closes its last 89 stores. Source:
