Various: For Collector's Only (2-CD)

(Collectables) 40 tracks​
 -
I started collecting records when my parents bought me a Stromberg Carlson record player for my 13th birthday in 1956. I remember going to downtown Brooklyn to the record shop next to the Fox Theater and buying my first three records, "3 for S2." They were "A Thousand Miles Away" by the Heartbeats on the Rama label, "In The Still Of The Night"" by The Five Satins on the Ember label, and "Story Untold" by the Nutmegs on the Herald label.

That was the beginning . . . For the next five years I accumulated thousands of records, probably 98% of these were vocal groups. I remember traveling up to Manhattan every Saturday with my friend Marty Dorfman, going to every record shop we could find that sold 45's especially the ones that sold them 10 for $1.00. If I came across any group record that I didn't have. I bought it. We would first hit the 3 or 4 stores on 42nd Street, then we would walk up to Zeiglers and the other two stores on 6th Avenue between 45th and 46th Streets, then down to Slim's, a costume jewelery shop on 43rd Street between 6th and 7th Avenue. He always had great group records in the back of the store, and probably not too many collectors knew about him. Between Slim's and Zeigler's I probably got half of my collection. Sometime in 1958 Slim's closed and I didn't see him again until the summer of 1959, when he re-opened in the subway entrance of the Times Square Building at 1475 Broadway.

I remember that day well. I must have bought 300 records. The only thing wrong was I didn't have the money tp pay for all of them. I worked a deal out with Slim whereby, he would pay me what would be the equivalent of 75( an hour in records. The following two years at Times Square Records afforded me the opportunity to pick the cream of the crop when it came to originals. I could probably fill up a thousand album jackets talking about my experiences at Times Square Records with Slim, Arlene, his wife, Harold Ginsberg, Johnny Esposito, Al Trommers, Jenny and her sister, Alan Fredericks and of course the famous Raccoon (his pet).

This album probably would be considered the cream of the crop back then. In putting it together, I aimed it to the serious record collector. The first record on side one by the Hideaways, "Can't Help Loving That Girl Of Mine," was in my collection, and I had the only known copy back then. On a trip to Philadelphia in 1959 I found it on the second floor of Treegoobs Record Shop in an old chest lying flat between two slats. I remember I almost broke it trying to get it out. After listening to it, it was well worth the 100 I paid for it. From what I understand, it is in Val Shivley's collection today. I have seen it listed in a book of the most expensive rarities, and they had it listed as the most expensive oldie of all times at $5,000. I guess by now you should have the picture. If you have all these records on this album. on the original labels, you would have at least $25.000 worth of records.

With part of my collection and duplicates I accumulated in those five years, I was able to open a record store in Philadelphia (Record Museum). At one point in its 20 year existence we had over twenty stores dealing with oldies. Now, my wife Nina and I collect record masters. We've put over 1100 records on the ''Collectables" label with a lot more to follow. There are many records that we've put out that have not been profitable, about 3/4 of the ones on this album fit this category. We feel that if we didn't release them they would never see the light of day. Being a serious collector, money is not always the factor. This CD probably is not going to be profitable for us but in my opinion these selections are truly the beginning of the oldies. And I probably wouldn't be doing what I'm doing today if it had not been for the kind of music on this CD. (Jerry Greene)
