This past weekend, LA got a real special treat, as this months “pop-up” record show at Rappcats in Highland Park (who has been hosting one-off shows since July, featuring Joel Stones of Tropicalia In Furs, as well as Egon of Now-Again Records and Michael McFaddin of Luv’n’Haight/Ubiquity fame), featuring selections from the collection of DJ Shadow. Though it got billed in some places as “Shadow selling his collection!” the best way of describing it was Shadow selling doubles and triples he had, likely from just “part” of his collection. As I mentioned earlier, it was humbling to run into so many records that I’d just never even seen before, and other DJs and collectors I respect had similar things to say. One of the most interesting bits (several pictures below) was the fact that Shadow had meticulously priced every record, and in some cases even added a little commentary, noting which songs had breaks and some other choice comments as well. I didn’t get nearly as much as I would have like (I am STILL paying for the trip to Spain earlier in the year!), but I got a nice grip of records and learned about more than a few others that have gone on the wantlist. If you missed it, these pictures should give you a sense of what it was like.
