I am very excited today, for these photos of Joel Oliveira, my first victim in the Crate Diggin portrait project.
He’s the owners of Tropicalia in Furs, a funky little record shop in the east village, NYC (304 E 5th street), where he gathers his small collection of Soul, Funk, Psych Rock and more. much influence from the Brazilian side, so you would expect to see lots of famous artists like Jorge Ben, Tim Maia, Quarteto em Cy to some real rare Turkish Funk or even more obscure Dutch Funk, which sounds even more obscure. He also had a radio show in East Village radio.
One of his most valuable 45′s is the first single of O’seis, who later became the psychedelic Brazilian rock band “Os Mutantes“. It is valued around 500 US$.
more info on Joel and his collection coming soon. If you wanna join the project, send me some info about you on: firstname.lastname@example.org more to come soon.. E
