Its taken me a year to find a decent copy of The Chameleons - Script of a Bridge, love that album - I got lucky and found one for £8 and not a single pop or crackle

Alison Moyet - "Alf"

Very 80s production (obviously), but Alison's voice just sounds great.

RE: What vinyl are you listening to?

A bit of a Bob-fest :

 

Another Self-Portrait 

Good to see it getting a prominent and informed review in the this month's current WHF. 

New Morning

Planet Waves

Self-Portrait

Nashville Skyline

John Wesley Harding 

 

I've always liked this late 60s/early 70s period. Less revolutionary than what preceded it but no less full of great moments. 

 

On another note, I've just come back from visiting my brother in The Lakes and I had to resist an original mono copy of Dylan's debut LP in a collector's shop in Keswick. I couldn't justify the £75 price tag, but it's been gnawing away at me since. Plus he had a nice mono copy of Highway 61 too, which I also now regret passing over. Such is my strange addiction.

As for Amazon, I avoid them if at all possible. At least once a month, will be going tomorrow, I go to Brighton and buy my vinyl, some preordered, and CDs from the fantastic Resident Records. Only if can't find something there, very rare, then I order over the net, usually Diverse Vinyl or another independent. It's my fight back against the death of and homogenisation of the High Street. If you don't use the shops you will lose them!

 

Can't wait for my Kraftwerk LPs to turn up

My two Kraftwerk albums arrived today, but will hold out until tomorrow before giving them a spin, Autobahn first.

Kraftwerk - Autobahn (Remaster)

I think I'll be returning this, nothing majorly wrong, but centre hole is tight, record is slightly warped, and there were 3 pops during playback.

A little disappointing after the flawless sound of "Man Machine", but you can still hear the difference between this and my original copy.
