Collecting Vinyl For 30 Years

 

I have been collecting  vinyl since 1988 when through a friend, I acquired my first album,  “Goin Off” by American Rapper Biz Markie.  After that, my passion for vinyl was born. I began to buy music that I was hearing around me such as: Gambo, R&B, Hip-Hop, Samba, and Samba Rock. My love for music, collecting records and how to hold the music in my hands increased during my time working at discotheques.  Besides, just listening and feeling music with my heart, I also enjoy the scent of vinyl; I know it’s crazy but vinyl definitely has an unmistakable smell.

Music in not what is important in my life but music is my life.

My name is Maurice Edwards and I’m an avid vinyl collector, music historian and novice DJ. My music background consist of 20 years of music retail and promotion and independent artist consulting. I had the fortune of working for two of the largest music retail outlets; Tower Records and Virgin Megastore. After my tenure with major record stores in 2004, I founded a web-based self-funded start-up company called Evolution of Media (EOM) which focused on the needs of independent and major artists in the music industry. Evolution of Media (EOM) grew from 27 unique visitors to over 50,000 unique visitors per month within the first year of going live. What set EOM apart from other competitors was that we limiting site reviews and recommendations to only outstanding emerging artists and major artist that were not visible within the mainstream. Besides working with independent artist from around the globe I established working relationships with the promotion departments of Sony, Interscope and Shanachie records assisting them with extra promotion for artist such as; Al Jarreau, Sky Edwards (Morcheeba), Miki Howard, Vesta Williams, Phil Perry and many more.
