Re: What vinyl are you listening to?

1994 Columbia orig. The remastered is pretty good by all accounts. Bloody good album straight through bretts.

Re: What vinyl are you listening to?

Not an opera fan by any means, far from it, but just a question please.

 

In that scene with Tom Hanks in "Philadelphia", near the end just before he dies, who is the female singer belting out the song?

 

I've always been impressed with how well that music worked in that scene.

It's one of my favourite albums of all time. I agree that there's not a single duffer on the whole thing. If you say the re-master's a good 'un, then that's good enough for me. Off to Amazon I go..... 

EDIT: Done job. £23 from Amazon. Says it's an import collector's edition, but doesn't give any details of what's different to the vanilla re-master.

Re: What vinyl are you listening to?


An album which a fair few people on these forums have bashed, but my copy sounded superb tonight.

Country of origin - England not United Kingdom.

Not me, Guv! ''Rumours' and 'Tango...' sound blumming fantastic.

I've got the original pressing, which sounds great. I was just at amazon, to get the album picture, and saw that they are doing the 2010 180g release for £12. Great price, for anyone who's interested.

Re: What vinyl are you listening to?

Your Carole King album sleeve reminded me of wondering whether anyone's heard the vinyl version of the soon to be ubiquitous, Seasons of my soul by Rumer.

I love the CD, and with one or two exceptions I don't/won't buy new contemporary vinyl, but I'm curious about the vinyl version.

The whole Karen Carpenter/Dusty Springfield vibe seems, however illusory, more conducive to vinyl.

Or maybe I'll just wait for the audio Blu-ray version!!!

Has it been released on vinyl? I haven't been able to find it.
