Great pics and finds. I've never cherry-picked a collection even close to that size. Looks exhausting and exhilarating. I can imagine you were both running on fumes at many points during the process.

Congrats!

^Thanks Vamos, good words. Moving all those boxes, and digging thru em was a good workout for sure. Frankly, I got information overload in about 3 days, trust me. Truth is there are some fantastic joints in this collection, as they were all hand picked by a life-long DJ. You get the good with the bad though with collections like that. Much of it has crate damage and are "over-mixed". He had doubles cuz he juggled everything. You can see his filthy fingerprints on every great 12", that's dope but a pain in the ass to clean. Even though most of the records are high quality selections, you gotta dig through a lot of boxes to find the great conditioned unsealed and sealed stuff. Still, I'd rather dig thru beat up a Hip Hop DJs records than anything else.

As much as I love the classics, I'm not sure why this DJ had 20 copies of "Life After Death" but he did, and many of those are originals unopened. It's crazy how much vinyl hoarding went on with the original owner of this collection.



@ BoomBap, will do man. There's a ton of Naughty By Nature.

I'm sure rchecka will come up on that in the collection (or there's a very good chance), but that's an easy-to-find slice. Peep here and I'm sure you'll find a worthy copy.
