DJ AM Vinyl Record Sale (November 12-14th, 2010)

Updated: Nov 18, 2019

Nine years ago, DJ AM's entire vinyl record collection went up for sale to the public. It took place a little over one year after his passing. The event was at The Cobrashop (a store owned by Mark The Cobrasnake) inside the Hollywood & Highland Mall on November 12th through the 14th, 2010. AM's family (notably his sister and her husband) along with Adam's friends put the event together with 100% of the proceeds going to the (now defunct) DJ AM Memorial Fund. The estimate of the number of total vinyl records in AM's collection at the time of his passing was approximately 12,000.

It was a huge job to get all the records sorted and in the shop to begin with. It took a group of us led by Adam's sister Lara & husband Ben along with Adam's close friend Kevy Kev to organize and make it all happen. Here’s some pics of the record bins & shelves that we set up. Posters, pics and other AM memorabilia were on display during the sale which added to the vibe of the event.

Even the records from his gig bags (right before the switch to Serato in 2004/2005) were in the sale (shown above). He still had his airline checked baggage tags on quite a few of the gig bags!

The turnout was great and a lot of AM's homies also turned out to support, hang and pick up some records for their collections:

Kevy Kev, Marshall Barnes, Chelby DuFourg, Adam 12, Stonerokk & Thee Mike B.

They also had "I Heart AM" printed shopping tote bags for each purchase.

The vinyl was tagged with “From the collection of DJ AM” stickers when purchased, proving their authenticity as a permanent part of Adam’s record collection:

I was fortunate enough to get my hands on several of Adam's most iconic records. The first ones below were featured on a couple of his most famous mix routines. The first is his Lynyrd Skynyrd “Sweet Home Alabama” that also had the Superduckbreaks record that he used with it in the same sleeve. Iconic AM mix right there for sure. The second pic is his Queen & David Bowie “Under Pressure” 12 inch as well as his Crooklyn Clan “Be Faithful” doubles that he used in his classic “Bass Drop” mix & subsequent “Be Faithful” juggle routine. A closeup shot of the “Be Faithful” wax shows his home address label as a vinyl marker, something he did quite frequently…
