Travel deep inside a secret musical treasure trove in a video report by asaps Jaime Holguin and Bernadette Tuazon.
NEW YORK Inside a nondescript building downtown lies the Holy Grail of popular music.
More than 2 million items, including musical recordings, books, magazines, videos, films, photographs, press kits and newspapers clippings, comprise the ARChive of Contemporary Musics collection. The capitalization is deliberate a semi-religious reference to a collection spanning from the end of World War II to the present.
Its the largest collection of popular music in the United States, and possibly the world. Inside youll find original Beatles, obscure albums and autographs from Jimi Hendrix and the Rolling Stones.
The nonprofit archive is partially funded by some big name members of its Board of Advisors, including David Bowie, Lou Reed, David Byrne and Keith Richards. The Rolling Stones guitarist recently gave a Robert Johnson original 78 recording, Me and The Devil Blues/Little Queen of Spades. Its one of about 10 to 15 copies known to exist.
He gives us a certain amount every year just to make sure we catalog and buy really good blues records, says Bob George, the centers director.
George says the goal of the center is to one day allow authors, educators, historians, musicians and students to access the musical heritage of the past half century, including the expansive collection of iconic album covers.
Theyre important cultural artifacts, and I dont think we really have that anymore, not since maybe the Nirvana cover of the little baby swimming, George says.
The collection is closed to the public, but asaps JAIME HOLGUIN and BERNADETTE TUAZON were allowed inside with a video camera to capture this treasure trove of sound.
