Blue to Red by Chip Wickham. The instrumentation overall is blended to perfection, I can listen to this album all the way through. I dont have a favorite track, but I did play Blue to Red more than once. Black Focus by Yussef Kamaal. One of the best Jazz albums ever written IMO. Shame about how YK ended samolivers Electronic avant-jazz melds live-in-studio improvisations and post-production experimentalism, overlaid with poetry courtesy of Sun Ra.
Now, another example that Music with capital letters was created in Africa. I can't thank Kenny Dixon Jr enough for another outstanding piece of art rooted in the deepest and most ancient of expressions.
What a reinterpretation of funk and disco! Explore music. Retrieved Rolling Stone. London: Guinness World Records Limited. December 15, Archived from the original on April 5, Irish Singles Chart. Single Top Alan Lastufka: Starting with a giant question! I bought this box set for several reasons really. First, the selfish reasons. As a music collector, I really wanted a lot of the unique personal items Steven included here.
The hand-written lyrics, the Polaroids from the album cover photoshoot, the Grammy nomination medallion and certificate… truly one-of-a-kind items that we as fans almost never get a chance to hold or even see. This box allowed me to not only see and hold them, but to own them. It takes a lot of time, but the results are stellar. Then, the unselfish reason, the proceeds were going to a good cause.
Even better! SDE: Is this an investment you expect to enjoy a return on? Alan: I will sell it on at some point. No one will treasure this kind of box set like a fan will, so even if I left it to a music museum or exhibition, it would just be another item on display there.
In the short term, no. Some of the magic here was in the fact the money went to charity. One pressing. One copy. This set has everything! I mean, everything comes in waves, right? Most of the time, Steven Wilson is my favourite, yes. But a few years ago it was Roger Waters. And a few years before that it was Tori Amos. In stereo and 5. SDE: Any regrets? I was preparing for regrets. What if the box set arrived trashed? But during the unboxing video , I got more and more excited as I went through every layer of the box.
It was better than I thought it would be. And the album is great. Short, but great. I never had money growing up, and even as a young adult I worked for minimum wage at a nonprofit. So I would see limited edition box sets at the time, usually four disc career-spanning sets come and go, and I could never afford them.
But then I began a YouTube channel and started having fun making videos. Some were sketch comedy, some were original music, or poetry readings with interesting visuals, or just vlogs about life. These videos caught on and I became one of the Top Most Subscribed channels on YouTube… granted this was back in when it only took 40, subscribers to hit that list.
And then that book led to me co-founding a record label for online musicians. So many indie musicians were making music at home, uploading it to YouTube, and viewers were begging to buy it, but these musicians had no where to go to sell it.
No one had heard of Bandcamp or DistroKid back then. No one was manufacturing vinyl on-demand. And because we were musicians ourselves, we set up contracts that were very fair for the artists. In fact, most of our artists went on to quit their day jobs and were able to make a living from their music within a year or two after signing with us.
That book was later turned into a Hollywood movie by 20 th Century Fox, and during all of that we were releasing his merch. We even recorded an exclusive audiobook box set of that novel. The value of our label skyrocketed after that, and after years of doubling our profits every 12 months, I sold my half of the label to a small group of investors.
I felt it was the right time to get out. Projects like that never last forever, and I was offered a lot for my ownership stake. All that work, combined with some smart investments and — outside of my hobbies — a fairly frugal lifestyle, mean I no longer have to sit on the sidelines when these Super Deluxe Edition box sets are announced.
But I think they were joking. SDE: Do you have any other physical music in your collection that comes close to this kind of value? The next most valuable physical music item in my collection is an original demo cassette from Tegan and Sara, autographed by both of them. It is one of the demo tapes they circulated before getting signed to a major label, and the demos are stellar.
I love it and have it carefully framed on my office wall. That one never stands up when you try to display it, I had to install a special shelf to prop it up.
Incidentally, my unboxing of the Bad 25 Super Deluxe was the first unboxing video of mine you featured here in , TFB being the second. At this rate, will be the next year for a really special unboxing video. You are clearly interested in items outside just CDs and vinyl etc. What else do you collect?
I also bought their Queen coins , and their Elton John coins. In addition to physical music, my other hobby is coin collecting. My dad was a coin collector while I was growing up.
He mostly filled in date books and bought Mint Proof sets like a lot of collectors at that time. But he enjoyed combing through pocket change and rolls.
When I started collecting in , I focused more on high-grade individual coins and coins with specific themes. In fact, I have a subset of gold and silver coins that feature nothing but music themes, which is where the Royal Mint Bowie coins, etc, fit in. Every year the two major coin authentication and grading services, PCGS and NGC, hold registry events where they award plaques and prizes to various coin collections put on display.
In addition to the music coins, I also collect classic US gold and silver coins. So physical music and coins are the main collections, but I also have a modest 4K UHD and Blu-Ray collection which consists of a couple hundred steelbooks and boutique label releases from Arrow Video, Scream Factory, and Criterion. Expertly transferred, super high bitrate, lossless audio, and with a ton of bonus features. Similar sponsored items. Modern Soul Memphis 45 O. Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.
