A mammoth session last night. One last blast before the whole system goes into storage for a few weeks.
i hope you survve the drought!
I unearthed these two old faves from the 80s:-
Paul Simon - Heart and Bones
Sade - Diamond Life
Had forgotten about Ms Adu until another mag gave them a write up recently. Still sounds fab, and appears to be AAA, i.e. no digits anywhere, unlike Mr Simon's.
Thanks for the thought.
I'm only a few days in to this non-vinyl regime and it's not good. Listening to digital through my headphones isn't too enjoyable.
Roll on June, July or whenever my house re-build is done!

Roxy Music - Avalon
I first listened to this LP as a student in the 1960's when it was first released on a record player. I was hooked. i always considered that this recording is a must in any Jazz collection. I bought a Cd later on but still hankered for the vinyl. Finally last month i tracked one down in its original sleeve format. Now i listen to it in my proper HiFi system through B&W speakers. Simply great.
Last nights vinyl listening was -
