Tower Records - San Diego / Sports Arena Blvd.

Tower Records - Los Angeles / Sunset Strip

When Licorice Pizza was sold and then eventually morphed into Sam Goody's, I eventually wound up going to Tower Records...a lot. This was my home away from home for the next few hundred years. Even though TR was pricey, they always had cool sh*t with the posters, tshirts, keychains and all that other stuff they would pack into their stores that made it an event to just shop there. Even though we had two Tower Records in San Diego, I stuck mainly with the one closet to home. The top pic (I didn't take the pic. Not mine) is right across the street from the San Diego Sports Arena (as seen in Almost Famous). The other Tower Records in San Diego that I would only go to when I would swing by Guitar Center was out past San Diego State University.

Whenever I was in LA, I would hit Tower Records on Sunset Strip, which is the 2nd picture above and can also been seen in Tom Petty's video for Into The Great Wide Open. I wish I could find video of Licorice Pizza somewhere. It doesn't have to be a music video. News report of something would be enough for me. :::sigh:::
