Thinking about changing the focus of this blog

Till now my focus regarding this blog was on building the biggest collection of old school live and radio tapes on the web. Not sure it can live up to that, but I have the feeling that it’s time to focus on preservation of the current online collection instead of adding new ones.

I think I have uploaded about half of my collection and this blog became a nice time capsule of hip hop history. At this moment the most requests I get regarding uploading tapes are about re-ups or additional shows from Mike Allen, Mr. Magic, etc.. Because my time is limited I think it’s better to preserve the current online collection then to add a 24th Mike Allen tape or 33th Mr Magic tape. Of course there will be reasons to add new tapes, f.e. when someone thinks an essential tape is missing or another collector want to add tapes to this blog. But I will focus my time and energy on ‘maintenance’. By doing that, this blog will not become a ‘file not found’ graveyard and current and new visitors will find more then enough tapes to start a personal collection and, by doing that, preserve a piece of history themselves. Hopefully that also will motivate some to digitize and share personal tape collections. And if that will be the start of a complete ‘mike allen’ or ‘mr magic’ collection, then that would be great! But it’s not a goal that I pursue.

To all regular visitors, especially the ones who have contributed to this blog in any way: if you have an opinion regarding this: feel free to share it in the comment section.

Mr. Magic died one year ago: don't forget your hip hop history

Mr. Magic died one year ago. A good reason to listen to some of his radio shows. I think i uploaded most of my tapes, but will check if i can find something fresh. Check the Mr. Magic label for the online tapes.

RIP MR MAGIC!

Eric B & Rakim, LL Cool J and Public Enemy Live in Amsterdam, 1987

DJ Kid sent me some photos he shot during The Def Jam concert in Glasgow. I don't have a tape from that concert, but the show in Amsterdam was also great. It was broadcasted by VPRO, a Dutch radio station and you can find it on several blogs. But for those who don't have it already:
