Back in 2011 I was fortunate enough inherit this spectacular library of vinyl from UCT. I guess I was just in the right place at the right time. Although this collection is predominately comprised of western classical music, there are some un-expected surprises here and there, and many recordings that have not been re-released since being pressed for vinyl. In the same year I took over the bulk of two private collections, from my lecturers at the time, which were a lot more varied and contained some very rare early electronic and experimental music. One of the lecturers was the composer Peter Klatzow, which meant a lot of Stockhausen! We are very thankful for this.
We love Stockhausen here at glowldb. We even have his greatest hits.
I will be posting excerpts, rips, sleeves and album art of the music I listen to, in the coming months. Hopefully this will discipline my listening, and act as a bit of diary of exploration through this collection. There are +-7000 to get through, which can be a bit intimidating.
Please feel free to contact me if you’d like come round for a listening session. I want this collection to be accessible to as many people as possible, it’s an incredible resource that should be available for anyone that is interested. Beat makers/classical music enthusiasts/fusion-heads/jazz-heads/old folks/new folks/70′s rockers/south african bubblegums/people that like green tea/people that like coffee that is too strong and enjoy long listening sessions.
Come listen, come look, come sample, come chat.
