Record Explosion

As foretold, last night was the first round of the Great Record Transfer of 2006. You can see the results here. There are about 45 full crates from the initial load, with about 20 more to be transferred tonight.

The amount transferred so far was enough to fill Cody’s truck, his trailer and my car. With Mike and Edric helping out though, things went pretty quickly. That’s a very good thing, too, because the basement where these were stored smelled heavily of cat waste.

As far as the collection goes, it definitely shows signs of the life of a radio DJ: reams of worthless promo singles, subscription-only hits compilations and personal notes from no-name artists taped to sleeves. That’s not to imply that there aren’t plenty of gems to be had though. Specifically there’s a great deal of classic 80s and 90s hip-hop that I would probably never have found in a store. So overall, I think it’ll be worth it.

Look out for plenty of promo vinyl on eBay in the near future. Meanwhile, if you need me, I’ll be in my room sorting.
