Operation NYC Journal Entry #2: Vandy C Test Presses!

October 18, 2011 2 min read 2 Comments



Yes, I know, this is taking longer than it should, been swamped non-stop. In any event, here's the next phase of the New York trip/Vandy CRecord Collection. The main question people keep asking me is, "What was the best stuff in the collection?" or something along those lines. Of course, it's all subjective. People have different formats, eras, artists, and whatever else that intrigue them. Here's how I decided to break it down. Out of the 2500-3000 records I pulled aside about 300 that really got my attention. I've decided to shoot promo videos of me going thru these records to share with everyone what was in there. It includes a collection of 80s and some 90s vinyl with what I consider rarities, classics, LPS with pic covers in great condition, and things of the sort.

I decided to start off with the Test Presses. While not all of them are the rarest of records, many of them are just cool to have, at least for me. There's a lot of artists in here that were Underground favorites of mine. Plus there's definitely some rare stuff and some bonus surprises at the end!! I know it's a bit long, but it would take forever to get thru these records if these were too short. Plus I figured this is mainly going to appeal to record fiends or rap fanatics and so you should remain entertained for the duration... Enjoy! Stay tuned for the next edition with a nice collection of rarities!!

I know I've covered it already, but for those of you who don't know the story behind where these records came from or the history of the man known as Vandy C, here's a quick promo video that breaks it all down:

Yeah, I was mind-boggled that people “didn’t bother”…one mans lost… I released some of the records at our parking lot sale and I have more to put out over time, lots of great stuff. Thinking of hosting a “private” used record buying party…hmmmm
