Tower Records - Sunset Strip 1971

Personally, I miss the Virgin Megastore more than any others. Their selection during the CD era was out of this world. Stopping in there at midnight on our way home from City Walk was always a blast. Such a great atmosphere. I put together the majority of my Coltrane collection from there. Often leaving with anywhere from 4-8 discs each trip.

While I've gone the way of minimalism these days, there is certainly something to be said for the record store experience.

The Virgin Megastore in Burbank was my own personal playground. It was a weird, magical place where I could plan purchases weeks in advance since I was almost always the only person in the jazz section (which was beautifully stocked, as were all the others). The whole store was great, though. Every genre was nicely represented.
