Hank Longo at 5 years old, son the of Pat.James Longo,  exploring his favorite record “In Sound From The Way Out!” by Perrey and Kingsley, the first collaboration between electronic musicians Perrey and Kingsley and considered to be the first-ever mainstream electronic music album. It was released in 1966 on Vanguard Records. Fast forward 30 years, The Beastie Boys are releasesing their instrumental album, titled exactly the same and with almost an identical cover. Some called it stealing. We call it props.

Markey Funk, A vinyl collector from Jerusalem, Israel.
Russian bootleg of Beatles’ “White Album”. Got it for my 10th birthday. For the first time it was something related in my mind to the grown-ups’ world, ‘cause I thought I had to be as old as my dad in order to have records. I still keep it, ‘cause it’s still one of my first influential albums.

Bongohead,  Northampton, MA. Yo, they don’t call me Bongohead for nuthin’! What’s funny about this particular recording is that was re-issued about five or six times, each time with a different cover, depending on the era it was re-released in. All I can say is there must have been something special about Mongo’s recording for it to be reissued so many times! Of all the cover art, I like the rare first version, the 10” called Chango, and the Drums and Chants collage cover done by Charlie Rosario in the ‘70s. This is an in-between one probably cashing in on the early 60s popularity of Olatunji and the Afro-centrism promoted by jazz artists. Some day I will have ALL the versions in my sweaty little hands.

Danny “Akalepse”, a vinyl record collector from Brooklyn, NY 
Winter in America - Gil Scott-Heron & Brian Jackson.
This record is amazing, from the cover art to the music. There is a tune on this record in particular called “your daddy loves you”. It is a beautiful song, it gives me hope, and it’s nice to hear someone realize they are going the wrong way before it is too late. I hope I can do that in my life as well. The way he is singing it to his sleeping daughter because it is the only way he has the courage…..such a beautiful picture.

Margaret Barton Fumo, Brooklyn, NY ~~ I love this 45 by Birth Control, a German prog band that’s very hit or miss, mostly due to their awkward English vocals. This single, “Hope,” isn’t on any of their studio albums, and was released instead as part of this cool “Progressive Pop” series on the German label Ohr. ~~ Photographed for Dust & Grooves, a crate digging photo site. www.dustandgrooves.com (C) All Rights Reserved to Eilon Paz & Dust & Grooves.

Jamison Harvey, Brooklyn, NY with “Soul Flutes” compilation album. who’s playing there? Herbie Hancock, Ray Barretto, Grady Tate. The identity of “The Fluteman” remains in question. While Herbie Mann has confirmed that he appears on this record, producer Creed Taylor has also informed that Hubert Laws is the mysterious flautist. Given the aural evidence, it is possible that both appear under this title.
