Time Rolls On Like A Train And A River…

Got this yesterday at a fleamarket.  Hard to believe that the biggest selling group in history, is, uh, history?  We’re the ARC.  We save everything about music, even long forgotten groups like these here Bugs.  We’re also in the last few days… read more >>

Turn Up The Volume!

Resurrecting those 60s psychedelic posters from the basement last week also turned up a pile of late 70 this-and-thats.   Like this first edition of VOLUME by the ARC director. We’ll have them at our next sale  –  June 8-23 –  for… read more >>

Nina et Les Beatles

Today, Nina (last name a State Secret) one of our favorite people, dropped off a pile of her treasured 45s. Mighty tasty items with a French twist and only the beginning of more things to come.  Can’t wait to see her Beatles’… read more >>

All Things Must Pass

We get a lot of things a lot of times.  That gives the things ARC treasures a better chance of surviving.  We also try to place them in a few different locations. The Notre Dame fire brings it all home; how important… read more >>

Not All You Need..

…but LOVE helps!  And there’s plenty more LOVE on our Instagram thing, #ARCnyc

Great Pretenders

In a 2010 obituary, Cat Coore, the guitarist and cellist for the seminal reggae band Third World, called Gregory Isaacs “the Frank Sinatra of Jamaica.” It was one of those “it’s a stretch” references, necessary throughout the world to make a foreign… read more >>

Paris – Day six – L’Empire des Signes

The Marché de Noël des Abbesses in Montmartre was offering a course on Roland Barthes this Christmas Eve, with vinyl examples… Here a vendor uses the disc to advertise his wares.  Enamored by it’s surface, and delighted by its re-application, I forgot to… read more >>

Simon, Nile + Reed – in the news

Well, quite a few of our Board Members are in the news these days.  First off here’s a pic of Paul Simon who visited the ARC last week (ignore that other guy). We had a mint copy of his Jerry Landis early personae… read more >>

Brazil vs India – go with the flow

Some things are just too good to be true.  While finishing off the cataloging of recordings that ARC collected for Brazilian Music Day, in preparation for India Music Week, I came across this album by Egberto Gismonti. It’s the perfect transition –… read more >>

A Blizzard of Sound

Last Thursday Fred + B wandered over to lower Soho to see a gallery show that caught our ear, “We Buy White Albums.” It’s by artist Rutherford Chang, who confesses a passion for cataloging, so of course we liked him instantly. Here… read more >>

ARC roundup 2012

Did you clean 4,500 LPs covered in talcum powder? Did you work during Hurricane Sandy searching for albums by flashlight? Did you wade through a mile long alley of engine parts and motors, piled 4 ft high, in 96 degree weather, to… read more >>

Beatles + Elvis + India

Well the Beatles Made-in-India 78 was not affordable (there’s still a chance if you all make a donation!) at $1000, but I did muster the lucre for these swell 45s. In Rajasthan now on the music tour organized by the American Institute… read more >>

Spare Change for Indian Insects

In my fervid quest for audio’s best, I spied this gem – a Beatles 78.  India kept making 78s into the early 1970’s and there are a lot of Sir Cliff Richard’s and Ricky Nelson’s to be had.  Not so many Beatles… read more >>

Beatles; Beetles

Recently ARC moved our 124 Beatles parody and novelty records to a new location, and then noticed that we were only skimming the surface of a vast insect pond.  Witness the treasures discovered by an ARSC member, the venerable, mobile, Insect Circus… read more >>

Hey, over at our Brazilian Day blog I’ve been posting a slew of recording by US playing THEIR music, how about the other way around?  Here’s a sought after rarity called Os Sambeatles, recently unearthed here at the ARC, as we re-shelved… read more >>

Touch A Star

Ok, even thought I should be writing about the ARC sale (June 9 – 17) and not fooling around with ‘prose’ or ‘ideas.’  But… There has been a recent thread on the ARSClist, (Association for Recorded Sound Collections – record collectors, audio… read more >>

windy + naked tape

We’re back at work here @ the ARC, but it was a wild windy week, as the neighborhood braced for the hurricane (look caution is one thing, but you don’t tell people to evacuate by 5, and close the subways at noon!). … read more >>

Stereophonic Introducing...Beatles VeeJay
