New York Public Library for the Performing Arts to Hold Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives Record Sale, 8/8-10
On August 8 (Noon - 7:45 p.m.) and August 9-10 (Noon - 5:45 p.m.), the New York Public Library (NYPL) for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center will host a special record sale at The Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound. The NYPL writes:
The Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded sound has 22,000 LPs with your name on them. The records represent decades of unsolicited donations, for which we already have at least one copy in great condition. Now we need the space to bring in more unique materials for you to enjoy and study. Whether you are a hardcore collector of foreign classical releases, lover of 70s country music, Funk aficionado, or devotee of Ronald Reagan's spoken work, stop in anytime between August 8th and August 10th to get your paws on your sonic favorites known and yet to be discovered. All genres and styles represented.
We've priced the records to sell with all proceeds going to support the ongoing expansion of our collections.
There is a great chance that someone will find more than one diamond in the not-so-rough. Many of the recordings have never been played, bear promotional stamps, and remain sealed in shrink wrap.
No - we don't have an inventory, but the recordings will be arranged loosely by label and issue number to make it easier for those who know precisely their prey. We encourage you to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr where we will post as many images of the records as we can between now and then. If you see something you want, hit us up and we will see if we can set it aside for you. No promises, though. Here are the details:
