Repeal + Replace…

Did I praise Spring in the last blog?  Well, snowstorm today, a Nor’easter Tuesday?  Regardless, we’re doing some spring cleaning in these-here parts, and wanted to re-visit some recent discoveries we’ve unearthed.  We term our endless comparing of existing recordings in the collection with new donations, “Gardening.”   You know – deep digging, pruning, replanting, composting.  In political terms lets just say a more gentle repeal and replace; a welcoming of productive new immigrants. 

So here are two just in-filed bouquets.  They are a gift from, and autographed to, artist/designer Hilary Knight.  You all know him from his Eloise illustrations.  We mentioned these discs more than a year ago, but just recently rediscovered them while in-filing new donations in the ‘Exotica’ section.  So enjoy these covers, and be in awe that Yma Sumac was his pal!

PS – In May we will be showing a great many of our signed recordings here at the ARC in Tribeca – a preview of a future exhibition, “Signed, Sealed, Delivered.” and a mini-fundraiser for the library.  Do let us know if you have any autographed recordings to contribute!
