No, that Other Tower

Special Edition release by RCA Victor on the occasion of the completion of the Allied Chemical Tower in Manhattan's Time Square (1965): "A special souvenir collection of musical hits from great Broadway shows ... in celebration of the opening of the new Allied Chemical Tower." Of course, it didn't start out as the Allied Chemical Tower, nor did it stay that for long: One Times Square

The Pops gives these tunes their usual appealing treatment.

Anyone briefly glancing at this cover now will probably first think of 911.
