People are always asking what I’m digging at the moment and my answers are usually ever changing and this week is no different. There are a lot of things that show up at the Nostalgia King offices (both old and new) which we put to good use so I decided to drop a quick list on things to be on the lookout for.
The D&G 45 Bag
Crafted in Chicago by 606 Records owner Drew and record collector Gregorio, this new stylish bag is durable, holds 50 7″ and perfect for an afternoon out digging or playing a short set out. Available now in 4 different styles from @imaginemoremusic.
The Library Music Film DVD
I love watching documentaries on favorite topics and the new The Library Music Film DVD is a must see and great companion to the LP. The Library Music Film follows record producer, composer and library music enthusiast Shawn Lee as he travels from his recording studio in London, through Europe, and California, USA to search out and interview the great pioneers of library music. Featured collectors include Mike Wallace, Cut Chemist, Adrian Younge and others.
Unusual Sounds – The Hidden history of Library Music (Book)
There have been a few books out on the topic of collecting library LPs and this new one from David Hollander makes for an excellent addition to your coffee table. Full color pages throughout and gives historical detail on many important sound libraries big and small – including KPM, Conroy, Peer, Amphonic, Montparnasse 2000, Flipper, Cam, Omicron, Sonoton, and many more.
Jazzsoon – Heavy Archives 45
Jazzsoon never disappoints when it comes to the concepts of his beat tapes and his new Heavy Archives 7″ is dope as f*ck. Sifting through 4 albums worth of recorded material, the new 45 flips beats and sound bites in an ill fashion which makes this more than just a 3 minute song and rather like a cinematic composition.
1970’s Mego Spider-Man
With the passing of the great Stan “The Man” Lee, I’ve been revisiting some favorite comic related pieces in my collection including this vintage 1970’s Mego Amazing Spider-Man action figure. As a kid, Mego the was one of the greatest action figure lines running a close race for first place with the Adventure Team G.I. Joe line. The world has definitely lost one of the most recognized and loved icons with Stan Lee.
