    3 Hours of the Black Wax Attack on Smile Jamaica

 

<Vinylicious!>

Greetings,

So I’m embarking on a home remodel so I can make some sensi out ofmy Vinyl Room.

Gonna make a Library at the Ark-Ives located in a secret location in SLC.

So that means I have to pack up about 5000 Lps and 12″ style. Bought the deep plastic Tupperware bins for the  job.

So as I harvest black wax from sagging pressboard shelves into these stackable bins, I stripped out the crème de la crème for airing on this Ark-Ive Edition.

Enjoy the black wax attack. Ultra rare and heavy roots:

Time to upgrade from the old pressboard shelves into something better
