Amoeba Acquires Eclectic Treasure Trove of 30,000 LPs! (Eddie's Record Collection, Part I)

Posted by Billyjam, July 1, 2012 11:55pm | Post a Comment
If you're an avid record collector or an Amoeba regular then you might have already heard something about the incredibly large and eclectic record collection that Amoeba Music acquired recently  from a private collection in Queens, NY. This collection will be presented for sale to Amoeba shoppers at the Hollywood store starting on July 21st. Perhaps you read the enthusiastic preview of this collection by Amoeba Hollywood's ever-discriminating classical music expert Rubin who, in his four decades of working closely with classical releases, says he has never viewed a collection quite like this. "The most eclectic collection of classical music I have ever seen," he wrote in his recent Amoeblog Huge Vinyl Collection to Hit Amoeba Hollywood on 7/21. Eastern European Classical Gems Galore! 

Beyond the Eastern European and other classical (primarily 20th Century composers) that Rubin addressed, this vast treasure trove of vinyl - 30,000 units in scale - includes lots of different types of music. Among the many other genres that are liberally represented are a whole lot of jazz, an eclectic mix of soundtracks (movies and stage shows from the US, Europe, and beyond), and a refreshingly unique selection of spoken word. Even more impressive is the fact that the majority of these records were never opened, and are still shrink-wrapped and perfectly preserved.

OFF! Play Free Show At Amoeba Berkeley At 4pm Today, Saturday May 12th

Posted by Billyjam, May 12, 2012 11:01am | Post a Comment

OFF! playing Amoeba Hollywood In-Store in October 2010

The West Coast hardcore punk super-group OFF! play Amoeba Berkeley today at 4pm but if you are a fan of this amazing band you know this fact already, probably attended their anticipated Slim's show last night, and more likely have already snagged your Amoeba wristband for today's free in-store show and signing line that follows which you got from buying the band's just released self-titled official debut album - simply entitled OFF!, on Vice Records at Amoeba (only 300 wristbands available).

Comprised of Keith Morris (Black Flag/Circle Jerks), Dimitri Coats (Burning Brides), Steven McDonald (Redd Kross), and Mario Rubalcaba (Earthless/Hot Snakes/Rocket From the Crypt) OFF! epitomize the term "super group" but unlike so many so-called super-groups who fall short of their collective parts - OFF! somehow manage to push the music to new heights. Simply put; OFF! are off the fuckin' hook! Truly an amazing band!

Around the time OFF! played Amoeba Hollywood (see concert video above + interview below of their October 2010 in-store at the SoCal Amoeba) Vice Recordings released the 4-record set OFF! The First 4 EPs (with artwork, like the just released LP, by Raymond Pettibon). I wrote about OFF! and their 4EPs for the Amoeblog at that time. And, since I am in the East Bay right now, you can bet your ass I will be over at Ameoba Berkeley today at 4pm for their in-store & signing. Note that the capacity of the Berkeley Amoeba is 300 people - hence why 300 wristbands were issued - and that, as of time of publishing this Amoeblog (11am on Saturday morning) there were still wristbands (which guarantee entrance) available.
