Now-Again | Nov. 3, 2016 | News |

Saturday, November 12, 2016
Noon — 6PM
5636 York Blvd.
Los Angeles CA 90042

On November 12th, Egon’s hosting his last record store of 2016 at Rappcats, selling records from his collection, one-day only. This event will continue in 2017, once every quarter, with unique records being made available at each event. For this event, he’s also selling rare jazz records from the 50s, 60s and 70s, all sourced from the well-maintained archives of a serious Pittsburgh collector: from first press, stellar copies of classics like John Coltrane’s “Giant Steps” to Ian Carr’s 70s modal fusion. Of course, records from Island funk to West African highlife to Brasilian bossa-nova will also line the walls of the 1500 square foot Rappcats space in Highland Park.

We at Now-Again have recently issued the World Experience Orchestra’s two spiritual jazz masterworks as part of our Now-Again Reserve subscription series. A career-wide retrospective of Houston drummer Bubbha Thomas and his Lightmen Plus One group – including many unreleased tracks – has been in the works for the past decade, and is planned for issue in 2017.

Also available on site will be the entire Now-Again catalog — for a one day discount of 25% less than our normal retail prices. If you can’t make it to Highland Park, all online Now-Again orders from the Rappcats store placed on November 12th will receive a 25% discount as well.

November 25: Rappcats Record Store Day Sale! Stay tuned for info.
December 03: Ubiquity Records/“Boston” Bob Gibson’s Collection Pt. 2. Focusing on rare hip hop throughout the decades as well as disco.

Photos: Prepping For Tropicalia In Furs Rappcats Takeover with Egon, Madlib, Mao

Now-Again | May. 16, 2016 | Photographs | ,

While Egon and Madlib were in New York this past week for Madlib’s talk at the Red Bull Music Academy, they headed over to meet Joel Stones and peruse some of the records he’d staged at Revival Vintage Boutique in Hoboken, NJ. Caio Ferreira was there to document the proceedings. Even veteran collector Chairman Mao was overwhelmed. And though Madlib bought two crates, there was plenty left over to ship before Joel headed back to Brasil to buy more.
