Re: Licorice Pizza and other Record Shops

Licorice Pizza, based in Glendale, where I was born  ;D, opened its first store in Long Beach in 1969. Founder James Greenwood borrowed the company's name from remarks made in a comedy sketch on an album by '60s folk singers Bud and Travis (I also read something about Abbott and Costello). The entertainers mused about sprinkling their records with sesame seeds and selling them as licorice pizzas.

"Jimmy thought that was funny and that it might make a good name for a store," said Ruth Sims, senior vice president and general manager of Licorice Pizza.

It is an excellent logo. Love it. I just may buy a t-shirt
