RIP Tower Records
TOWER RECORDS, NYC | DEC 22, 2006 (VIA)
I stopped by Tower Records on Broadway yesterday – it was their last day open. I didn’t even realize it ahead of time – just happened to be walking by after buying some Christmas presents at Other Music.
The front of the store looked like the above picture. Check out Triborough’s Flickr for more pics.
Everything left in the store was 90% off, and sadly(?) there were still enough CD’s left to stock a small independent store – mostly stuff I had never heard of though – stuff that STILL wasn’t selling for $1.00. I didn’t buy anything, but after a little digging, I did find a copy of Sound Team‘s new record (one of Britt Daniel’s favorite albums), a whole bunch of Rogers Sisters, and about 100 Towers of London CD’s.
