Enthusiastic collector whose journey towards an adoration of music started by being introduced to The Beatles as a child. It further grew while being exposed to the Punk Rock scene in New York City in the late 1990s. I started collecting original pressings of my favorite English punk bands and selling the repress CDs I had on eBay. Around the turn of the millennium I became enamored by Hip Hop and how much it had changed since I was a child. Now I collect Hip Hop LPs/CDs and the music that builds the foundation for it: Soul, Funk, Disco, Jazz, Rock, Soundtrack. Flea markets & record stores are where I score most of my finds.

Best digging in the NYC/NJ area:
