Tower Records R.I.P.

This is pretty sad. I remember buying a lot of cd's from the Tower Records on Sunset Strip. Two weeks before taking this photo, I saw Chris Anderson speak, author of The Long Tail, and he played a funny clip about the death of Tower Records. That's how I found out that Tower Records was closing down.

I went to the sale, and the first floor that displays all the popular music was still there, but as you make way to the second and third floors that display jazz, classical, bluegrass music, the selection vastly diminishes.

I haven't bought one song from iTunes and I have an iPod. I still by cd's because I like the cover art, and still read the lyrics to the songs. Btw, there was an obscure record store that sells "other music" right across from Tower Records. I'm curious what "other music" is.

I bought 6 classical music cd's for approximately $18.00, for a total of 6.5 hours of music. That's cheaper than iTunes selling 1 song for 99 cents or $10.00 for 1 hour of music. Now that's a steal.
