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:

Dunno about fingers on the pulse I had forgotten I had posted here. Thanks for reply though floyd droid.

I have recently listened to it again and what I heard initially is now gone....very strange!

Vocals on some tracks are a tad sad I have to admit but overall I'm very happy with this LP.

Will be sure to checkout Youtube.

Cheers again..... and a Merry Xmas to you.

Loads of second hand expensive kit!

RE: Praise & shame - rate your new vinyl here

I posted about the 'Tacet' label a while back, all valve recording techniques etc.  Orderd a couple . . . one was a bit 'samo-samo' to me, the other was better but the pressing quality a bit clicks and pops, rather analitical with no feeling?  I contacted them about it, they emailed back defending their sound quality and sugesting one must expect a few clicks and pops, at £35.00 a go on new vinyl!!! Surprised . . . no offer of a replacement, money back etc.  I had to put my foot down to get a new copy, that they say is on its way?

Not my recomendation for spending your Christmas money form Aunti Mary.

A personal opinion of course, CJSF

Too right, CJ you should tell them to get hold of some Analogue Productions remasters that would show them exactly what new vinyl is capable of!

'Struth CJSF for that sort of money I would have expected something of Coup d'Archet quality.

Well worth a look if you're into the odd bit of classical ...... and I do mean the odd bit!

RE: Praise & shame - rate your new vinyl here

I put a post re the Tacet label LPs I was not happy with.  They sent me a replacement which I received today . . . It is like chalk and cheese, so much better, I have played it through on the offending side, excelent.  I am now listening to the the other side as I type with speakers either side of me like big ear phones, very good, most enjoyable.

So they have redeemed themselves, lets hope it does not happen again . . . if it does, thats 'sods law', they know how to deal with the customer.

RE: Praise & shame - rate your new vinyl here

Received my vinyl copy of Nu Sound & Version, some On-U Sound remixes of Lee Scratch Perry tracks, a few weeks ago. I had ordered it a year ago when the CD was released - don't know why it took them so long to release the vinyl. Anyway, it was worth it - really clear sound, great deep bass. The tracks are a mixed bag, from some absolute gems from the Moody Boys to a very lackluster mix of Iron Man. Well worth a listen, though, overall.

I've just discovered that one of my favourite artists, Serafina Steer, released a new album last week, and even better, it's available on vinyl. For those who don't know her, she plays the harp and tells quirky little stories in song - but no, she's not like Joanna Newsom except in the most superficial sense. Apparently her last album caught the ear of Jarvis Cocker, and he's produced this album, can't wait to hear it, hopefully it'll arrive this week. I also bought the two most recent Burial EPs because Norman Records had them at a reasonable price - thanks to whoever mentioned Norman earlier on this thread, I've bought from them before but had forgotten about them.

Will let you know how the new vinyl sounds when I receive it.

Three new albums

 

Jonsi - Go. Excellent album, vinyl pressing really good. He is lead singer of Sigur Ros, similar but more instruments. Listening to album transports me back to seeing him live, a truely uplifting show.

John Coltrane - A Love Supreme. This is the single album but gatefold sleave. Nice heavyweight vinyl and really let's the music flow. Beautiful.

Finally I also have Lux by Brian Eno, not listened to yet as not the wife's cup of tea so will need to wait until she is not around next weekend.

Two new albums this week for me...

Matthew E White - great reviews in the music magazines and I wasn't disappointed.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Big-Inner-VINYL-Matthew-White/dp/B00ALG4IYW/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1360665101&sr=1-1

180g vinyl and mp3 download. Really nice listen.

Then, Lord Huron "Lonesome Dreams"

huron

Again a very enjoyable record, mine was very slightly warped but doesn't seem to affect the music. (EDIT: Does have a download voucher - it was stuck inside the sleeve).

RE: Praise & shame - rate your new vinyl here

Hi, I'm new on the forum and have been reading with interest the 'rate your new vinyl' thread.  If this has been covered a hundred time before then I apologise, but I was after some tips about places or websites where you guys are buying all of these great LPs from?  I always used to buy on vinyl in the '80s and early '90s, until CDs took over.  I've kept the vinyl collection going with second hand purchases from shops, car boots and ebay, but I'd now like to get back into buying new vinyl.  I'm not sure where to start looking though?  Any advice would be gratefully received.
