About this Poster

This beautiful poster advertises the Boston location of Tower Records, a former retail music chain that operated out of California with locations all over the United States and in many countries across the globe. The company operated from 1960 until 2006 and sold DVDs, electronics, video games, and accessories in addition to cassette tapes and discs.

After decades of success, Tower Records became increasingly unable to compete with growing competition from discount distributors and online piracy. The company was also plagued with mismanagement and sizeable debt due to its rapid expansion, pushing them to declare bankruptcy in 2004, then again in 2006. The rise and fall of the store were chronicled in the 2015 documentary "All Things Must Pass."

This poster was designed by artist Tom Antista, is in excellent condition and ready to be framed.
