RECORD CRACK: Tower Records, Sunset, Los Angeles, 1971 (video)


This video was passed along to me a few days ago because people know about/of my love of records. I often revive memories of some of my favorite record stores and thus this video was presented to me on Facebook. It’s nothing more than a camera focusing on Tower Records employees putting new records on the store floors and racks, while potential music buyers look it over. That’s all that it is. As there has been a vinyl resurgence in recent years, younger audiences may not realize how plentiful it used to be, nor how diverse the selection of different music once was. When I first saw this video, all I could think was “aaah, the good ol’ days” because a nice part of my childhood was spent in record stores doing nothing but looking at covers and labels. This was and remains the dream.
