Todd Thomas from “The Silver Thread”

1: what do you collect and why?

I collect mostly collect 1960s, 1970s and 1980s rock, punk and underground rock but also with a little 1950s and 1960s jazz thrown in. In addition, I purchase many new releases on vinyl too.However, no matter what period or genre if it sounds great I will buy it.

2: How big is your collection?

My collection is around 300 records. It is not a massive collection. I have to be selective with my purchases. I only have so much storage room in my apartment.

3: Whats that elusive gem you are always looking for?

At the moment, I do not have any elusive gems I am looking for. I enjoy looking through bins and finding a surprise. Like a record that may have been mentioned in magazine by a favorite musician, etc that turns out to be a buy and listening- if it sounds great. But a mint original Love ‘Forever Changes’ would be a nice find.

4: How do you track stuff down?

I mainly shop at Jerry’s Records, Juke Records and Desolation Row in Pittsburgh, PA.

5: How often do you listen to your collection?

I try to listen all the time. But it is difficult with every new purchase. There are never enough hours in the day.

6: Barring some kind of situation when you die under a pile of fallen records, how do you think you will eventually dispose of your records?

I will sell it, hand it down or be cremated with it and my relatives can scatter my ashes with it. If that is even possible.

7: Whats your all time favorite record, regardless of rarity?

All time favorite record-The Velvet Underground’s third self titled LP.

Capitol Records Celebrates 75th Anniversary With Vinyl Reissues, Essay Book & Docuseries

In honor of Capitol Records’ 75th anniversary, the record company plans to give music fans a better glimpse into the history of the label with reissues of old favorites and more.

The celebration kicks off Nov. 15 when Capitol Records becomes the first record company to receive a star of recognition from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to be placed in front of Capitol Tower near the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Capitol Music Group Chairman and CEO Steve Barnett announced Tuesday (Nov. 1) that the company has three endeavors planned out that include music, film and literary projects that pay tribute to eight decades worth of artists signed to the famed West Coast label.

The first is a year-long major vinyl reissue campaign called The Capitol Records 75th Anniversary Collection, which features 75 albums. The list spans many Capitol eras, genres and artists and includes well-known and lesser-known releases.

Capitol joined noted music journalists, authors and other renowned creative figures to decide on the final list, which includes artists like Coldplay, Katy Perry,Bonnie Raitt, The Beatles and Frank Sinatra. The album is set to be launched in partnership with Crate & Barrel and will become available through music retailers throughout 2017.

The second endeavor from the label is the publication of a deluxe photograph and essay book from Taschen called 75 Years of Capitol Records, to be released Dec. 15. The book will follow the evolution from Capitol’s founding in 1942 to the music of today.

Along with a foreword from Beck, the book will include essays by cultural historians and music and architecture critics. It is currently available on Capitol’s online store.

The last project is the development of a Capitol Records docuseries produced by Nigel Sinclair’s Whitehorse Pictures (The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years, No Direction Home: Bob Dylan). Slated for an autumn 2017 release, the series will go into the company’s extensive archives and tell stories that have taken place at Capitol Tower from the last 75 years and will tell the story of America’s love affair with popular music and how Capitol’s artists have helped define our lives.

The Los Angeles City Council will also proclaim Nov. 15 as Capitol Records Day in the city. Beginning that evening, the spire on top of the Capitol Tower that has emitted “Hollywood” in Morse code will change to “Capitol 75” and will continue to flash in that manner for the next year.
