PHOTOS: Tower Records Site Through the Years
After Muntz’s car stereo center closed and demolished in 1970, Tower Records was built, and, according to the 1974 Guinness Book of World Records, was the largest record store in the world. Celebrity sightings were common, and, as you’ll see below, the building more than kept up with a surge of prolific advertising along the Strip in the 1970s.

In 2006, the Tower chain declared bankruptcy and the Tower Sunset location closed.
