Re: What vinyl are you listening to?

DIB:

 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.

 

Oddly enough, I "discovered" JLH with his 1989 album 'The Healer'... got that album and 'Boom Boom' on CD... didn't take it any further at the time but now the turntable has taken over the cdp as my favourite music source it's time to revisit Mr Hooker Smile

1970s vinyl and still sounds good.

Good call, I'm going to put "Next" on now.

 

The 70's was a golden period for me and gigging, SAHB were definitely right up there as a top gig not to be missed.  Utterly wonderful live.

Re: What vinyl are you listening to?

Having a complete change of tack this afternoon whilst working in the front room. I thought I might dig out some of my wife's LP's from the 80's and started with this one. No mistaking the 80's production but her voice is rather good. One of the few concerts both me and the wife have attended together over the years, she could certainly belt out a tune...

Re: What vinyl are you listening to?

You know certain records remind you of certain times of your life, well this one takes me back to a camping holiday in the south of France in 1979. At night the bar/disco on the campsite played the usual disco fare that was about at the time, but during the day the barman/DJ constantly played this much to me and my mates delight. Happy days...

Strictly speaking the above post is a lie. I span it before posting the piccy. Maybe a little edit to the thread title Mr Lost Angeles? Big Smile

Re: What vinyl are you listening to?

Great choices, Mr Droid. Both excellent albums.

I'm currently working my way through the LPs I bought at the Manchester show today.

Now on The Black Crowes "The Southern Harmony & Musical Companion".

Still have  one Byrds album, and three Doors LPs to play.
