  • Going to New York - what to take to trade?

    I'm off to New York in a couple of weeks, what should I be stocking up on that's cheap over here to trade when I'm out there? Also, I know about the big places to go like A-1, final vinyl, rock and soul, sound library and stuff but does anyone have any advice on lesser known spots to visit?

    I don't expect people to reveal their secret spots, but, having never been before I don't really know my way around!

    Thanks a lot

    King George is a cool place to visit but I didn't find anything when I was there last year.

    Also you need to go to Old Devil Moon Restuarant for the down home southern food. Delicious!

    Both spots on Manhattan.

      I can't remember the name of the place but I found a nice little spot on West 3rd St near to the Blue Note club.

      Never actually been to these but they've been reccomended:

      DISC-O-RAMA - 186 W 4th Street [between 6th and
      7th]

      RECON, 237 Eldridge St, NY

      out of Manhatten:

          I've managed to get good trade in Toronto and more recently in New Orleans on really common records over here. Think Charity shop staples, Big Jim H, Happy Monsters, Sight and Sound, Chico Lopez, etc.

            Totally second that ...anything with Breaks thats BRITISH...plus any good British reggae stuff (dancehall era is good) and also think Spoken Word and you can't go wrong...British funky rock stuff (with Breaks) but make sure that it's not released over there...
            Country be dyin like poor people do
            Hospitals be closing...doors to me and you (Lopazz - Blood)

            And here's some other stuff that i get up to...

                Exactly, coals to Newcastle, snow to Eskimos and all that.

                  Brit breaks and euro funk will do well, plus don't assume that early 90s hip hop is dollar bin over here... that stuff will get you good trades, especially if it's euro press. The NY dollar bin stuff that is worth bringing back to the UK is Fania and early 80s electro/boogie on Prelude, Westend, Vanguard etc.

                  Also, King George will spot the UK accent and assume you are a Ninja tune producer. Somehow work on that before you enter

                  PM me if you want any more details on record spots and FOOD!

                    Also come clean on what you want...mention that you are looking for some interesting bits and pieces and who knows...you might get lucky if he thinks you're a knowledgable Brit....especially if you got some good trades...

                    If he thinks you know your stuff and he gets lucky too you'll be a winner for sure....

                          Do you fancy taking Lee's box of 30 copies of Hammond Gold over with you?

                            I second that. quality food.

                            i'm off to NY soon as well, for the first time more than 3 years. fortunately, my wife has lots of friends to see there, so i can indulge myself at least some of the time on the dustyfingered digging front.
