- In 1983 my brother and I saw a flyer for a new shop, it read, “Not another record store on the Lower East Side.” Five years later, I was working there and remained for over 15. Robert was one of the most interesting characters I have known from his Brooklyn accent to his ten sugars in his large coffee ONLY to be purchased from Porto Rico Importing Co to his incredible knowledge. He was a friend, a boss and, if pushed, he would even act fatherly. I spent most of my Saturdays hanging out in the shop listening to music and stories from a venerable who’s who of the music industry. If you were there you know. I have recently re-connected with Lilyan, Robert’s wife, and we have been talking about him and life in general. Last time we met up she said she believed Robert would want me to have a few of his records that we most bonded on. I was floored. Just to look through his collection again would be a thrill. The records in his former studio, now their granddaughter’s bedroom, are most of his Jazz collection and some of the Soul and R&B. It is filled with standards, unexpected gems and complete discographies of Coltrane, Miles, Ornette, Monk and a few others. I found some records that he and I connected on, discovered together or simply loved. Quite often he would say, “The next one is yours.” Typically those were records that we never got another copy. #primitivesoundsystem #vinylrules #vinyljunkie #vinyl45s #RareRecords #recordcollection #recordcollector #FinylVinyl #RobertCohen #AliceColtrane #GeaterDavis #JamesCarr #TheOtherSide #DescoRecords #GaryBartzNtuTroop #KenoDuke #CliffordJordan #GlassBeadGames #StrataEast #OliverNelson #BluesAndTheAbstractTruth #ImpulseRecords @ImpulseRecords @BlueNoteRecords #BlueNoteRecords #LouDonaldson #EricDolphy @louis_mendes_the_great #LouisMendesPhotography #BuySellTradeEatSleepJustRecords @portoricoimportingco
- We’re so excited for #MadameX that we are having a #MadonnaAppreciationDay. 🌈👸 Madonna - True Blue (1986) is the 3rd full-length by the Queen of Pop, this cemented her status as a heavyweight in the MTV generation and as supreme 80’s pop superstar. It was a peek into her future reinventions: the sexy vixen of the ‘Open Your Heart’ video, one of her first flirtations with Latin heat on ‘La Isla Bonita’, and a socially aware storyline on ‘Papa Don’t Preach’ about sex education and teen pregnancy. Such an iconic Madonna era! #MarkarvinRecords #Preorder 👑✨ •
🎵: PM to preorder the record
📦: for preorder - heavyweight vinyl on 180 gram pressing
- Today is the 48th Anniversary of my second favorite doors album and unfortunately the last doors album with Jim due to his death this was the album that was getting made during Jim’s Miami trail probably why he doesn’t sound as excited as he did on other albums he seems more reserved but anyway this album is great with classics like riders of the storm la women been down so long changeling love her Madly and the Texas radio and the big beat.

- Bad Religion - Christmas Songs - Epitaph Records - 2013 - Red Vinyl - Limited to 1000
After 18 days we’ve come to the end of Bad Religion and we’re ending on a Christmas album. Eight traditional Christmas songs done in the style of Bad Religion, plus a different mix of American Jesus (which is great). I’m not sure this will get a ton of spins but it’s pretty awesome they donated 20% to SNAP (Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests).
- #ArtBlakey and the #JazzMessengers - Straight Ahead - #cheapheat - “Art Blakey is a national treasure.” That’s the first sentence and paragraph of the liner notes for this album. At the point in time this album was released, Blakey was a leader for near 30 years on the jazz scene. And yet in #1981 after those many years Blakey found himself once again leading an insurgence of blues and swing to the #jazz scene — this time leading a new set of young lions. It’s remarkable for a musician to lead one revolution in her/his lifetime, let alone two. It’s a testament to Blakey’s incredible talent, creativity and power. This is essential stuff. Get it.
