Subject: It seems there were at least two record labels named Tower through the years, neither of which were related to Solomon's music chain.

In reply to: Dies at 92 's message, "Russ Solomon, founder of Tower Records" on Monday, March 05, 12:28:27pm

One was a subsidiary of Capitol Records which gave us records by Ian Whitcomb ("You Turn Me On"), Freddie and the Dreamers ("I'm Telling You Now"--but NOT "Do The Freddie"), the Standells ("Dirty Water"), Max Frost and the Troopers ("Shape Of Things To Come"), and others.

A totally different Tower Records had hits in the late 1940s/early 1950s. This one was Chicago based and gave us hits by, among others, Jack Owens ("How Soon"), Benny Strong's Orchestra ("That Certain Party"), and pianist Bill Snyder ("Bewitched").
