(EDITOR’S NOTE : The damage done to Norton Records‘ Brooklyn warehouse by Hurricane Sandy has been covered elsewhere ; if you’ve already purchased the mix CD’s mentioned below at the Maxwell’s shows, you can still help Norton out with a donation here For everyone else, the following message was sent to the Yo La Tengo mailing list earlier today).
Thanks to all of you who were able to attend this year’s Hanukkah shows at Maxwell’s, and I hope those of you who could not followed the bouncing ball here.
As we’ve done the last two years, we’re going to make the mixes that Georgia, James and I compiled available to you the downloading public for 24 hours: noon Friday December 21 until noon Saturday December 22, and that’s eastern standard time. These are drawn from our record collections–the music is not BY us, just SELECTED by us.
Each download will cost $10 and every penny will be donated to our pals at Norton Records, who were very nearly wiped out by Sandy. (Read all the grisly details here.
But wait! there’s more . . . you will also have the opportunity to pick up two custom mixes from the incredible Norton catalog, one compiled by Miriam Linna and one compiled by Billy Miller.
And we’re still not done!! The good people at Three Lobed Recordings have graciously allowed us to offer downloads of the mix we sold during night six.
All you’ve got to do is go to http://www.yolatengo.com/forsale/ on Friday at noon.
