Errrrr I presume this is off vinyl and not Spotify.

To DIB  I think all The Who albums are brilliant off vinyl.

Re: What vinyl are you listening to?

The recent John Lennon CD reisues has prompted me to play my J.L vinyl.

Tonights listening has been "John Lennon Plastic Ono Band", followed by "Walls & Bridges".

I will not be getting all the CD's, only "Mind Games", as my second hand vinyl copy is knacked.

All the others were bought new, and sound excellent.

(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).

So, a good buy for £13 then? I'll have to pick up a copy myself. It was from HMV, if anyone else is interested.

Re: What vinyl are you listening to?

Yep, more than happy Big Smile

Took a couple of weeks to dispatch but worth the wait. I'm hoping to upgrade the stylus to a Blue at the end of the month, and if what I've read about the Blue, this album will sound sublime.

I've got that one. Charley Records brought out some really good R & B/Blues LP's in the 70's and 80's. I've got a few by JLH, Jimmy Reed,  & T-Bone Walker.

Unfortunately, they didn't own the rights or something like that and so were closed down.

 

However, that particular LP is a great place to start with the Hook and has really good versions of his most famous songs such as "Dimples", "Boom Boom" etc.
