Eine Ausstellung in Japan zeigt grade die Sammlung alter, tragbarer Turntables von Fumihito Taguchi, einem Plattenladenbesitzer aus Tokyo. Lovely stuff.

Taguchi’s collection has grown to over 100 different varieties of portable record players. Last year he even put out a photographic book of his collection, accompanied by several essays. In the book (sample pages viewable here), Taguchi explains that most people couldn’t afford to collect records based on musical preferences. Instead, they played phonosheets [Flexi-Discs] that were produced locally or given away as freebies. They were sometimes not even music at all. But that didn’t matter – it was the commodification of sound and people were simply looking for something to play on their portable record players.
