For those that love music and have special Tower Records stories, this will be an important and must see film. Not only am I covering this story from a journalistic perspective, I am also making a financial contribution to the making of this film. This project aligns with the SMI philosophy that music builds community, is the universal language and that it has the power to unite people of ever race, religion, gender and persuasion.
The Tower Records story is about a man, his company and the unprecedented economic and cultural impact it had on the music industry and people around the world. Tower Records begins with the man who created it… Russ Solomon. From an early age, Solomon had a special love of music, a dynamic personality and the inventiveness of a crafty entrepreneur. His first job was sweeping floors in his father’s drug store, located in the Tower Theater building, in the sleepy northern California town of Sacramento.
