CF - You folks had asked for some news, so…


On Thursday evening, Feb 26, ARC will host a meeting of the NY Chapter  
of ARSC, with a talk by Tim Brooks, ARSC pointman on copyright in DC.   
[address below]

The numbers are in for 2008, donations to the ARC include : 33,837  
CDs, 9,173 CD singles, 42,349 LPs, 14,417 twelve-inch singles, 4,218  
seven-inch singles, 1230 music books, 1,570 music DVDs, plus tons of  
magazines, press kits, cassettes, etc...

Of the many wonderful collections we received one of the most  
important was from Music Publishers Shapiro, Bernstein & Co., who made  
a priceless donation of 2,304 ten-inch acetates.  These one-of-a-kind,  
one-sided discs were created by songwriters, publishing companies and  
song pluggers to entice potential users.  One such rarity is Tony  
Bennett having a first crack at the David/Bacharach title song from a  
young Brigitte Bardot’s “The Night Heaven Fell.” Just for fun they  
threw in the sheet music.

One of our more challenging jobs this year was supplying all the scans  
(over 800) for the new Grammy Hall of Fame that opened Dec 6 in LA.   
ARC is one of the few libraries or in America that could supply such a  
wide array of popular music, in good condition, in a timely manner.   
Well, we had a little help from the Institute of Jazz Studies out at  
Rutgers.  Scanning artwork and labels continues to be a major use of  
the collection, and this year we did work for Universal, Verve,  
Cadence, Sony, Def Jam, Nonesuch, Dave Clark (who stiffed us for the  
bill) and CBS among others.

You can now visit the NYMIA - The New York Musicians Index and ARChive  
@ www.nymia.org   This is an online listing of all working musicians  
and music related businesses in New York State.  This project was  
funded by ARC, Columbia University and a $250,000 grant from the New  
York State Music Fund.  The grant was awarded and administrated by the  
Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors. If you ARE a musician, or work in a  
music related field in New York State, do go online and make sure  
you’re listed.  If you need to book a tour through ancient New York –  
Phoenicia, Troy, Syracuse, Rome, Ithaca, Utica, Athens – the NYMIA  
makes it easy to find venues and help to promote your shows.



ps - we can also supply a scan or illustration if needed

Thanks

B. George,
Director
