The Final Days Of Full Circle Records.

A Documentary By Michael Greene. In October of 2006, a small mom and pop record store in Southern New Jersey named Full Circle Records announced that it was going out of business and that the liquidation sale would continue until mid December. Ironically, at approximately the same time, Tower Records, the iconic juggernaut of the music retail market, made the same announcement. Something has happened to the music retail world and it seemed to have happened overnight. …Or did it? The Final Days Of Full Circle Records is a fascinating documentary that provides valuable insight into the rise and fall of the record store industry and subculture which may change the way you think about music, music retail, and the art of collecting music forever.

    Wow, great doc..

    I have to say a lot of Record stores didn’t do themselves any favors by being some of the most intimidating places a “casual” listener could go…Doesn’t seem like the case with Perry.

    We just lost Orpheus Records here in DC. I just cleaned out their Tangerine Dream section.

    On e other thing, the argument that most albums have “filler” and only a few good songs… Call me crazy, but I’m not sure I ever owned an album like that.

  3. Hi Johnny. I really miss the album format too. So many songs on albums that people think are filler I find the most interesting. The songs that were never meant to be hits… the ones that were made just for the sake of it or when the band was relaxed the most.
