The Aphex Twin was just unplayable, and I remember the first 2 copies I bought of Laughing Stock by Talk Talk a year ago were pretty poor soundwise. 

Do you think it's bandwagon jumping?

Do you think all these pressings are legit?

I know for certain that there are plenty of illegal repressings around, but I'm not sure how the likes of Amazon would be duped into selling them.

 

I've never heard a decent pressing of this unfortunately, from the original through to the represses of recent years. I have several other LPs pressed by the same record label (R&S/Apollo) and they are all problematic in one way or another, which is such a shame as the music deserves so much more.

I bet that sounds great on vinyl. Only got a 12" single from it. 

Recently I unearthed the William Burroughs/Disposable Heroes collaboration on vinyl though, and that's great.

RE: What vinyl are you listening to?

Can't work out if I have a crackly copy, or if it's all the samples crackling, but it's a stupendous album though. 

You can get it pretty cheap on Discogs.

I've never heard the Burrows/Heroes album, will have to see if I can get a copy.

Sam Brown - April Moon

Lovely album by a great singer who only seems to turn up with Jools Holland these days.

Kate Bush - The Hounds Of Love

A masterpiece from a true legend who has produced more than her fair share of brilliant albums.

Just spinning Hounds of Love

Just spinning Hounds of Love on the RP6 & Elicit - been away with work & hols for last few weeks - I'm gobsmacked at how much control the Elicit has over the RS3s - the Brio was a cracking amp but list it's way a bit when I pushed the volume, however the Elicit is kicking ass - I guess this is what I should expect for an amp costing 3 x the Brio R ?

RE: Just spinning Hounds of Love

 

Having been a bit disillusioned of late regarding the quality and cost of decent 2nd hand vinyl, I've had a hiatus from vinyl in general. However recently I bought this LP for a decent price. Unfortunately the sellers idea of Exc/VGC does not correspond with mine, and it is a bit  crackly in parts, though not to the extent that it's unlistenable. Ho-hum, that's vinyl I suppose.

 

Anyways, a pretty decent album.
