Adam Goldstone Memorial + Donation

10 09 2008

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.

Bob:

Thanks to all the people at ARC who have worked so hard to organize and catalogue Adam’s collection. He hated to have anybody touch any of his records but somehow I think he would approve and be happy about what is happening at ARC.

Hey there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same results.
