Oh man, that is food for psychiatrists. "Each collection is a reflection of its owner".
Do you notice the matching carpet? That's what makes this a great photograph. Anal as it is, that is
the way to store and maintain vinyl. With love and care.Afrika Bambaataa's collection of 43,000-plus records, alphabetized for Cornell University Library's Hip Hop Collection, New York City
Putting it on alphabet is not the same as love, or care...
Oh man, the librarian responsible for the archive is going to be sooo happy. Until he finds what's inside.
I would make shure I had a good healthinsurance with a watertight covering of all expenses. Not to mention a gasmask and a white suit.A dubplate of Hydraulic Funk's "Wild Style," from Bambaataa's collection
'Wild funk' for sure. The tropic fungus in there is sure to give you a nasty lung infection, or worse. And is highly questionable if it's actually playable. If the state it's in is any indication for the quality of the music... Where I live a lot of people are brainwashed in to thinking that pot is not bad for your brain. But when I see this I suspect it does make you delusional. Collection, yeah right. That is not just careless, it's harmful neglect.
Afrika Bambaataa is an American DJ from New York.
Not that it makes any difference; I thought he was from the caribean. Still, records from NY shouldn't be that funky (in the literal way, not the figurative musical way).David Fox Caldwell's collection in his Aikei Pro's Records Shop in Holly Springs, Mississippi (it took an hour just to clear away enough boxes to get inside)
That's not the store of a shop, that hoarding. And destroying your assets. Or old age dementia. The only thing NOS (new old stock) in there are probably the tubes. The rest will be so warped that its unplayable. Anyway not enjoyable.
And Im not even commenting on the african man. TIA for sure."listening to his records for the first time in thirty years, since his record player broke"
I can not get my head around just how dark that continent is ( I have a lot of friends who lived there, were born there or tried to help). The stories I heard last week will send chills down your spine (and I'm talking about how they treat young children, not even about LP's or a broken recordplayer). They don't even care enough to be egotistical or self centered.Edited by ]eep - 5/29/14 at 10:34am
