Record Bar ad Dec. 20, 1970 Liberty Plaza, Erie, PA

Record Bar in Erie, PA had a huge classical music section, as well as sections for folk, country, rock, easy listening, soul, r&b and jazz. The first ad for the new Liberty Plaza appeared in the newspaper on December 6, 1970.

The advertisement shown on the right is from December 20, 1970 (from the Erie Times-News). It features albums by Blood, Sweat & Tears, Chicago, James Taylor, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Isaac Hayes. Classical and electronic music was popular. Selections on the left include Music from the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey, Furtwangler and Carl Nielsen.

The Record Bar also sold a lot of 45's and attracted a lot of neighborhood kids.
