Anybody got Beth Hart's latest (Bang Bang Boom Boom) on the Provogue label?

Excellent stuff except for a weird mistracking / warped type sound that only occurs on track 1 side A.

The LP itself looks perfectly flat and OK visually.

Do not know if it is a deliberate part of the recording or my copy is duff.

Loads of second hand expensive kit!

RE: Praise & shame - rate your new vinyl here

Today has been a nice lazy Sunday catching up with my recent vinyl purchases. A very nice day it has been too, in my favourite chair, sharing a bottle of very nice Bordeaux and my vinyl with my wife.

 

Django Django by Django Dyango. Great album, already had cd but love the use of instruments and sampling, very similar to Beta Band ( one of DD is brother of a BB). Gatefold sleeve, double album, heavy gauge vinyl, plus cd.

 

Broadside by Bellowhead. Enjoyable album, well produced, different instruments all very clear, nice warm sound. Includes cd.

 

Barton Hollow by The Civil Wars. Love the album and hope the rumours of a break up aren't true. Beautiful voices and sparse instrumentation, really works on vinyl.

Pro Patria Mori by Ian McCulloch. Very much a fans purchase, he being lead singer of Echo & the Bunnymen. Nice album, not special. As an aside, album made through Pledge Music, a website where groups etc get fans to pledge to buy CDs, vinyl at normal prices so the artist can raise the funds needed to make the album, can also pledge on things as diverse as the guitar used or have even heard of a special gig in the fans home!

Kind of Blue by Miles Davis. Music on Vinyl edition, 180g double LP gatefold sleeve. Lovely pressing, washes over you.

The Abbey Road Sessions by Kylie Minogue. Surprising but a guilty pleasure of mine. Is actually very good, very different, Can't Gt You Out of my Head with a string section is very good. 180g double LP, gatefold sleeve, booklet. Even my wife commented on how good it sounds and she is usually jealous towards her!

DIana Krall "Glad Rag Doll". Double vinyl album but no CD or download voucher.

Excellent music and well-delivered. Great Sunday morning listening.

Sounds ok to me Al. Have to say that its not the best of pressings now I've listened to it without interruptions. I'm wondering if its Beths overdubbed vocal thats sounds like she is singing through a wet T bag that has caught your attention ?. 

Check out the 'live ' version of Baddest Blues on youtube , phew !!  :grin:

My favourite vinyl is from Radiohead-the best of. Great sound quality, stunning artwork and in my opinion they have actually selected the best, nothing good I can think of has been left out. For 25 pounds its a great deal. 

 

My least favourite vinyl is Kings of Leon Only By Night, infact this is worse than the cd! Horrible horrible sound quality, the mixing engineers must have been of duty. "Use Somebody" is such a great song but ruined ruined ruined by the horrible drum recording.

RE: Praise & shame - rate your new vinyl here

I've had bad luck with the new remastered Sgt.Pepper. Side two, scratched and cracking all the way through. Returned to the shop (Leeds' joint finest, Jumbo), and the replacement copy was similarly afflicted. Third time lucky. 

 

Abbey Road was fine, but I've got to say I preferred the 2009 remastered CD version on this occasion. Then, out of interest, I compared the new vinyl version to the copy in the "Blue Box" (1978). The latter was pretty good too. 

 

That's been my only recent-ish vinyl as I've been giving my new NAD DAC lots of listening.

Beatles Stereo Box Set

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Beatles-Stereo-Vinyl-Boxed-VINYL/dp/B0041KVW2K/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1352798551&sr=8-1

I suppose this is relevant to the new vinyl section - even though they are reissues?

Just received the Stereo Beatles remasters yesterday - the Box Set. Ok £300 is a lot to spend on any individual vinyl purchase, but this is 14 individaul albums, all remastered at Abbey Road, plus an impressive hardback book, all in one place in a very elegant black box. Even the outer packing box has a certain style, and shows that there has been love and care lavished on this project.

I've only played one side of Sgt Pepper, but so far  it's so worth the investment ( yes, I've justified this by knowing that I can pass it on to the next generation - honestly! cos vinyl will still be around, and grandad will be thanked hugely).

Sound quality is fabulous - all the instruments come out, the bass line is particularly clear. I think I'm going to be spending a few weeknights and weekends in awe. I've posted a few pics elsewhere, but here's a few of them just in case

Wow, this is great. Very tempting deal indeed, hopefully they will ship to Belgium? Biggrin
