Be on the lookout, rockers. Tower Records founder Russ Solomon has issued a call to arms (and/or sleeves), to all former employees and customers of the famous chain.
The historic record store honcho is building a sky-high pile of archival material, and is hoping you have money and memories to contribute.
In collaboration with the Center for Sacramento History, Solomon is launching The Tower Records Project, a fundraising campaign on a mission to preserve, and publicly display, the legacy of the bankruptcy-busted, Sacramento-based chain.
The effort to maintain the chain's history actually began a few years ago, notes the project website.
In 2009, founder Russ Solomon donated over 200 boxes of Tower-related history—artwork, photographs, memorabilia, awards, business records and correspondence, office furnishings and even the neon signs from the first stand-alone store—to the Center for Sacramento History.
