Listening to other crate diggers stories of amazing scores might be the only thing vinyl nerds love as much as collecting records. Jealously inducing tales of that time you found "that rare 45, for, like, 50 cents."
A scene from Red Beans and Rice
It's at once infuriating and inspiring, a little more fuel for the fire as you dig through dusty boxes at garage sales, record stores, and Goodwill stores.
"I'm a vinyl collector, and I love hearing about digging stories and experiences from other collectors," says Darrell D. of Jamille Records. "I would seek out these stories and find them on YouTube. I came across a lot of good stories, but they always seemed to be short and not have much detail. There are a lot of digging videos out there will celebrities, DJs, producers, whatnot. So I decided I'm going to make my own video. I'll make it an hour long, so people have enough time to sit back experience the whole culture of vinyl collection, and I'll delve into different collectors and talk about the experiences they've had."
The resulting film was Red Beans and Rice, released in 2010. D. speak with collectors from all over the country, including folks instantly recognizable to Phoenix collectors. D. is back with a follow up, Red Beans and Rice 2: Audio Vibes, and he's screening it Saturday, April 7, at FilmBar.More »
