From the Internet Archive and the Center for Sacramento History, we bring you a glimpse into record heaven in 1971. This look at Tower Records on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles is, frankly, a little bit mind-blowing. Stacks and stacks of vinyl and boxes of albums are everywhere. They didn’t need a warehouse; they just filled the whole store up with records. Shout out to Vintage Los Angeles.

Here’s a promo for Tower Records that John Lennon taped during an in-studio radio appearance on KHJ in 1974. The album he was promoting was Walls and Bridges. This cute montage uses a whole lot of Professor Forney’s footage. (You can actually see Paul McCartney’s first album, which is a little odd.)
