Picked up a few discs yesterday from a record fair, but due to stylus problems not played any yet. However, as soon as that is sorted the first album I'm going to play is this one...
Never heard it before, but for £3.00 I thought it was well worth a punt to see how it compares to Focus.
Not my cup of tea at all. Late 70's jazz-funk shopping mall music, can't see me playing this one again.
Now this is more like it...
Creek 5350 amp, Creek Evo 2 CDP, SBT, Beresford Caiman Mk I DAC, Epos Elan 30, Pro-Ject 2Xperience Acryl with 2M Blue, various Van Damme & Mark Grant cables
Phil collins - Face Value. There's definitely some duff songs on this album, but there are a few goodies, too. The recording can't be faulted though. It has a great 3D soundstage.
My Favourite album from Nitin Sawhney -Beyond Skin
Neil Young - `Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere` Re-issue from 2009.
Santana 3rd album and CravanseraiLed Zep 4th album my copy definitely needs replacing I've decided.David Gilmour 1st album and Marillion Misplaced Childhood.Dunno if I should say on here but I then played a CD as I had not got it on vinyl, only about the 3rd CD I've played since January.
The Who's "Who's Next" on 180g vinyldont know if the weight improves the sound but it feeeels good.....
The original sounded great, the drums come from way back. Enjoy.
Graham Parker's backing band, very classy solo effort from the late 70's. Great musicians to a man..
I got my 'Grace', this morning. I'm having my first listen now. I'm glad you convinced me to take a punt on the re-master, 'cos it's good. Really good. I have the Legacy re-master on CD, which is great, but this is showing up more detail. So much air around Jeff's voice. I'm listening to 'Lilac Wine' now and it's given me goosebumps up my arms. £23 is a lot for a record, but I think it's worth it.
Another record fair acquisition, £3.00, in great nick..
Eddie Taylor, Jimmy Rogers, Pinetop Perkins, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, James Rush, Sunnyland Slim, Albert Collins, Luther Tucker, Jimmy Vaughan and Snooky Pryor.
Absolutely stonkingly good blues recorded live in 1985 at Antone's, Austin TX.
This is sounding so good.
Not their best, but still sounding good.
Peter Gabriel 3rd album cost me a quid, vocals sound a little thin.
I'm quite partial to a bit of George. A little cheesy in parts but I like cheese.
