    I searched the subject but only found memories of old times. (I had them too) Anyone have experience with the new Tower records? New Tower have any connection to the Solomon family?

    I pre-ordered their exclusive Counting Crows: Butter Miracle Suite One (butter yellow vinyl) on April 30; shipped upon release in decent packaging. No problems whatsoever. Would order from them again.

    No experience. Tower Records in the US is nothing but a brand name now, with no relationship at all to the original Tower.

    Can’t remember what I purchased, it was a cd not vinyl, but it arrived within a week of ordering and it was packaged well.

    For all you Tower Records fans out there I thought you might enjoy seeing the original Sunset Strip location with the store signage restored for an upcoming streaming mini-series on L.A. icon Angelyne this past October. A project I worked on the 2012 film Rock of Ages recreated the storefront in Miami where the L.A. set story was filmed. I don't recall seeing Tower in a film or TV project since then. This was nice to see but also very sad, as the world of retail music has changed so much since Tower Records locations roamed the earth.

    Your photos (which didn't translate to the website thread but were in the email I received) remind me of the SFO Tower, near North Beach.

    Thx for that!
