I just came across this press release - not sure exactly what is involved from the description "sorted, organized, & archived," but for those of you in NYC, I believe the gallery is located at 620 Greenwich St.  Might be interesting to check out.

THE AFRIKA BAMBAATAA MASTER OF RECORDS OPEN ARCHIVE
July 11 - August 10, 2013
Opening reception: July 11, 2013 / 6-9 PM


Gavin Brown's enterprise and Johan Kugelberg/Boo-Hooray Gallery, together with Afrika Bambaataa, the Universal Zulu Nation, and Cornell University Library announce the public archiving of one of the most important record collections in the history of hip hop:

The Afrika Bambaataa Master of Records vinyl archive.

From July 11 through August 10, Kugelberg and his team will be organizing, cataloguing, and documenting Afrika Bambaataa's peerless vinyl collection at Gavin Brown's enterprise, Monday through Friday between 12 - 5 PM. Visitors are encouraged to stop by, hear some great music and see how the cultural artifacts of this important strand of American history are preserved.

Open archiving, like an archeological dig or a group of students viewing biological research in a museum, is an important and rarely seen part of the process of documenting history. Before the Afrika Bambaataa archive moves to its permanent home at Cornell University's Hip Hop Collection in the Fall of 2013, Johan Kugelberg and Gavin Brown's enterprise offer visitors a unique opportunity to experience what is arguably the most important gathering of vinyl in the history of hip hop while it is sorted, organized, archived (and DJ'd) in full view of the public.

Please join the Afrika Bambaataa vinyl archive mailing list and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for announcements of visiting DJs playing selections from the archive during the sort.
