Collecting For 30 Years

I collect vinyl because I find the experience hypnotic, and at first I did not understand what it was i was feeling but enjoyed the good vibes.  Since then everything I heard and bought was a reason to chase those good vibes.  My love for records began with a compact (stereo) I earned from my mother in 1977, however, I started to buy records for myself in 1982, I think.

I have bought and lost a lot of records over the years but whenever possible I still buy some because the digging keeps me alive. No matter how old I get, I will always like music that excites me.  It’s a pity that the price of vinyl is extremely expensive nowadays.

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.
