Collectors, dealers, fans, come one, come all to The First Annual DJ Shadow Storage Sale. Shadow’s not selling his collection, but he is pulling back the curtain on a brace of dupes he’s managed to process over the last few years. Expect a strange and broad assortment of lesser-seen vinyl in all genres, most offered under $15, and with an effort to price well below established online value. “This is a chance for producers, dealers, and DJ’s to access seldom-seen and eclectic vinyl at affordable prices,” says Shadow. “These are all records I have other copies of, and I’ve decided that I don’t need to keep multiples. Think of it as a year-long thrift-store hunt consolidated into two days.”
Shadow has also found some unsold “new/old” stock of his own projects, many of which were only ever sold through his web-store. Vinyl, CDs, DVDs…even VHS tapes, all-Shadow related and sold on a first come, first served basis. The man himself will of course be on hand to sign anything and everything, or just to say hello.
In addition, there’s the outliers: good music in unfairly ignored formats such as 8-Track, reel-to-reel, and cassette. “Vinyl is so fetishised, but I actually covet other formats equally,” says Shadow. Explaining further, he adds, “For example, ideally, I would want James Brown’s Payback album on reel, cassette, and 8-track in addition to vinyl. If it existed as a first-run consumer product, I need it in my collection.” If this logic appeals to you, then you’ll be interested in checking out these format oddities.
