An interesting documentary on Tower Records from its inception in the 60s to its demise 40 years later. Fast paced interviews and archival footage held my attention throughout. 4/5 and playlisted. Thank you uplinkers.

It was such a thrill going into a tower record store and buying a new record or a 45 with my allowance

It was interesting to get a view of the passing decades from the record store's perspective. I'm not as teary-eyed about the ending though, they were lucky amateurs who stumbled on a goldmine (which was part of the charm of a pre-millennial world where that could happen) and the only reason banks controlled their company in the end is cuz they screwed up their finances on their own so incredibly badly, while it was more fun to party. As someone who probably paid +$1000 in CD's myself, they admit they got greedy with rising CD prices and with the phasing out of singles, so that people were forced to pay full price for an album, etc.. and when file-sharing burned Rome, it burned hard and the people rejoiced.

Cool doc. Remember meeting and chatting to the one and only 'Vanilla Ice' at the Piccadilly Circus store, many moons ago :) Great amount of hours could be spent there in my youth.

I didn't know they made speakers that big and that loud when I walked into the Tower store on Sunset. Brain Salad Surgery was playing so loud it went through your whole body until you were floating in the music itself.

wow that was a good documentary. see how the bankers operate, obliterating such a great company and from a whole country no less. i think it should go on forever and i thank japan for keeping the tower records flame alive. rock on.

Good documentary. I liked learning about Tower records. Never heard of them before but I've learned plenty about it. Good watch.

The story of a company whose owners were not satisfied with one or two successful stores, they just had to expand and expand and expand. Well, guess what happens with that model?

Well I have never heard the expression **Handtruck fuel** before. Now I know a new term for cocaine. Interesting documentary. Definitely not the Walmart way of doing business yet you see who is still in business. Definitely worth a viewing...8/10
