It’s been way too long, and I’ve finally got off my lazy ass and started a record blog. The purpose is to open some people’s eyes to some records they otherwise wouldn’t be exposed to. I’m DJ Prestige. I’ve been collecting music all my life, but started DJing seriously in 1997. I’ve got some great stuff in my record collection, LPs and 45s to share with whoever wants to listen. The majority of the records I get are from digging at Flea Markets (hence the name), yard sales and thrift stores. There are some great spots here in Jersey, and I’ll be posting record reviews, finds, and general banter.
I’m going to do my best to post at least a record a week, complete with record scans and an mp3 for the your listening pleasure. My first record will be coming up shortly, and it’s going to be Brother Jack McDuff’s “Oblighetto”, on Blue Note Records.
Meanwhile, next Friday night March 30, 2007, myself and a whole gang of DJs are going to do our second installment of the 45 Sessions in Asbury Park, NJ. A night of all funk, soul, latin jazz and reggae 45s, no 12″ allowed. Here is the flyer for this month’s party:
