The 80's LP re-issue on Beggers Banquet Records knocks spots off the later CD which is full of so much filler it spoils the original album. "Dr.Sardonicus" next I reckon...

Ooh, 'Slave to the rhythm'. I'm jealous.

'Rumours' sounds fantastic. Love that album.

Re: What vinyl are you listening to?

Following the demise of Family, Roger Chapman and Charlie Whitney formed Streetwalkers in the 70's. They never pulled up many trees but were a decent enough live attraction. Roger Chapman's unique vocal style being very much of the "marmite" variety.  However, this live album from that mid 70's period is a pretty good effort...

Re: What vinyl are you listening to?

(If you're reading Bretty, it finally arrived on Saturday after a 2 week wait! Sounds pretty good - equivalent at least to what I'm getting thru the CDP (is that damning with faint praise? not sure). Noise floor is very low, that's for certain).

On original 70's vinyl, still sounding bloody powerful...

OK with me. I've played

 

Side one of Roy Harper as it needs a good clean and I'd ordered a half speed re-mastered version of Brothers In Arms which could not be supplied so I dug my original version out, it sounds like it needs a good clean to.
