On September 20th, 2008, the Goldstone Family will be dedicating a memorial tree for brother and son, Adam Goldstone. It’s at 4pm, In Tompkins Square Park. All who knew Adam are invited.
Adam was a friend of ARC and the family generously donated his remarkable record collection to ARC last summer. Adam had come to New York in the late ’80, ostensibly to attend film school, but I first met him while DJing at after-hours club Save the Robots. By his own admission Adam’s style was wildly eclectic, but he produced great house records and could move a crowd of 3,000 as well as a small club in the Village.
Sadly, unexpectedly, Adam died in 2006 of a heart attack while getting ready to DJ at the Burning Man Festival in Nevada.
Here’s what was donated:
• 6,254 twelve-inch singles
• 2,306 twelve-inch albums
• 693 CDs
• 1 CD box set (5 CDs)
• 36 Music Magazines, w/ CD
• 32 audio cassettes
• 89 seven inch singles
• 1 DVD
• 5 wheeled record carriers
We loaded in last summer and catalogued the LPs right away. Now, as we go into fall this year, we will work on the 12″ singles – a daunting task. We hope by next Spring to have all this metadata on each release available online.
Here’s what the db will look like…
This was one of the best collections we have gotten in years, and exactly the kind we love. In great condition and things the owner loved – and from an archivist’s POV, used, but not abused.
Within the donation we found the following Adam Goldstone releases, or recordings he worked on.
