This afternoon, got to be Phil Spector's Christmas Album.
Sounds just like it did when I bought it all those years ago.
Darlene Love's voice is just fantastic with all those drums and orchestration making a great sound.
Pity it was done in the days of Mono, but still a great sound on vinyl.
Remember the Beatles & Phil Spector's motto "Back to Mono"!!!!!!
Whilst everyone else is in the room next door I am rocking out to the vinyl I got today
The Rolling Stones - Beggars Banquet
