Todd The God needs your help.
Faced with the old ‘too many records, too little space’ conundrum, the L.A.-via-New Jersey house/garage figurehead has decided to hawk his entire record collection on eBay. Every record in the substantial collection, collected over the course of 25 years, has been sampled by Edwards at some point in his career.
Edwards explains the rationale for the fire sale on his eBay page: I recently moved from New Jersey to my new home of Los Angeles and I drove a truck across the US with all of my belongings (very Hollywood, right?). Before I left Jersey, my manager asked me what I was going to do with all of my old records and I said I didn’t know, and he asked me to pack them as he’d love to have them.
“A week later, when I finally made it to California and pulled up to my manager’s house, he was drinking a mai tai and said “I changed my mind.” Typical!…I don’t have space in my apartment or in my studio for them, so I’ve decided to put my entire record collection up for sale”.
The set apparently includes everything from freestyle white labels to vintage disco edits to classic Strictly Rhythm house discs. The collection is split over 30 different lots, and will be open for bidding for the next five days. Head here to bid – each lot is currently starting at $10. If you’re concerned you might be depriving a legend of his music collection, fear not: all the material is safely backed up on Edwards’ personal sample bank.
