Miss Lily‘s Variety recently published Middles, Centers, Spiders, & Inserts: 45 Adapters from the Collection of Jules Gayton, cataloging the Downtown New York City DJ’s collection of 7″, 45 rpm adapters. What started as a shoebox collection eventually became an amassment of near-extinct artifacts of vinyl history.
