First listen of Lonerism...

...Lame Impala

 

The whole thing plodded along lurching from side-to-side until it finally expired.

 

Disappointing, both in terms of the tracks and the album's overall sound quality. My ears were fatigued after the first two tracks. I stuck it out for the whole LP but had to  wind the treble down. It's odd, because I had the opposite issue with their previous album and had to boost the treble.

Shiny things. Now with bouncy needles! Biggrin

John Cameron! Wow! I've got one of his records: The John Cameron Quartet-'Off Centre.' Great British jazz and he's a wonderful pianist. I think I remember reading he did film soundtracks. Nice one. 

It's an amazing soundtrack Jim, and copies aren't cheap, but definitely worth having.

Bloomfield-Kooper-Stills -

Bloomfield-Kooper-Stills - Supersession (Columbia original LP, 1969)

 

This is an original USA copy on vinyl, red label, cover very solid, like only americans were able to do. The vinyl was well protected on a plastic bag, it is still near mint after all this years and all this play. I have bought it new in the USA in 1976 if memory serve me well!

The sound is fantastic, especially side one where the great Bloomfield is a giant of taste well supported by Kooper on an incredible organ.

I think the soundstage of this recording, and of many american recordings of that years, is really fantastic, they knows how to record a disc and there is no comparison, totally there isn't with the actual digital recordings.

I still have to hear a proper sounding electric guitar or organ recorded with digital equipment, then this is another story.

Great album, great listening experience.

Charloe Jefferson, everything great but John Denver. What he has to do with all that great music?
