Moby is selling off his entire record collection for charity. Yes that is right. Moby is selling off his entire collection of records that includes personal copies of everything he has played over his career, rare and signed vinyl and more. This will all be sold on the Reverb LP Shop starting this Thursday, June 14 (also when the World Cup starts). The proceeds from Moby will go to Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
The collection has some quite rare vinyl fans will want to get their hands on. The collection includes two first pressings of his seminal 1999 album Play, test pressings and signed reissues of Play and 18, promo recordings of singles like “Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad” and “That's When I Reach For My Revolver,” multiple sealed copies of Innocents and More Fast Songs About The Apocalypse and plenty more.
“These are all the records that I bought and loved and played and carried all around the world,” Moby says in a video about the sale. “I would rather you have them then me, because if you have them, you’ll play them, you’ll love them, and the money will go to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. So everybody wins. Well, except me, because now I don’t have any records.”
