DIB:Ravey Gravey Davy:
Great minds think alike! I've just put on this classic..
Air guitars at the ready...
Unfortunately never got to buy that one in the 70's(yes mine is the original) but I have just found out there is a 3 CD compilation which came out in July this year of Robin Trower -The Chrysalis years 73-76 .I may well be tempted
Edit There is something wrong with the link insert- not playing ball.
Double edit- that's not working either.
Anybody dragged JD out of Bushy Park other than the Police.
Not vinyl i know, but regarding Robin Trower, have you ever hear this on Youtube?

floyd droid: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?
What vinyl are you listening to/listened to or going to listen to it does not really matter as long as people are posting and the response seems to be going well.Nice to see Bridge of Sighs being played.
I have played my latest purchases
The U2 cost me a quid and there is a fair bit of surface noise in between the tracks on side one and tracks 4 and 5 on side two are very crackly so I might only play side one in future. The Pat Benatar was a quid as well and sounds excellent, well worth the gamble.Marillion I had on CD but the vinyl certainly sounds very different, the vocals seem quieter and the drumming seems more spacious perhaps the TT just organises everything better. I certainly found it a different listen.
And deadly for 12000 years is Carbon 14
Home early from work, all the family out doing one thing or another, so taking advantage and cranked up the volume a wee bit
£4 from a car boot a few weeks ago, in excellent condition too. Currently listening to disc two (Fly By Night).
I bought a haul of vinyl at the Manchester show this weekend, but have had hardly anytime since to listen to it.
But so far, I did play this, and it's bloomin' marvellous:
Superb lounge singer with a simple but striking production (hey, it's from 195 that puts her voice front and centre - that real 'she's in the room' feel. Whole thing sounds like the soundtrack to an early Mad Men episode
Group PR Manager - Computers Unlimited;
Former Group Editor of What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision and Whathifi.com
Bjork - Debut
This afternoons listening has been The Doors "L.A Woman", and The Byrds "Mr. Tambourine Man" mono LP.
Bought from the excellent Diverse Vinyl stall on Sunday.
(now listening to "Bob Dylan in Mono", on CD, if I am allowed to mention the C words here!)
I know, I could have spent a fortune there on Sunday myself but had to rein myself in as I'd just laid out a few quid on some Grado's. They had some great stuff.
Sonneteer amp, cdp & phono amp, Systemdek IIx900, Onkyo 876, Ruark spkrs + REL sub, bits and bobs
Opeth - Live at the Royal Albert Hall. Limited edtion Vinyl box-set.
I'm having my first listen now. All four 180g discs are very good pressings.
My very first LP, scratched to hell but still good...
