  1. The US pressing noise wasn’t catastrophic but it was there - the ones I have are 70s pressings so the ‘oil crisis’ could have been a factor.
  2. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    BN 47W63rd DG mono
  3. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    The stereo LP in stereo sleeve versions are no doubt ‘rare as hen’s teeth’.
  4. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Ike Quebec ‘Heavy Soul’ (BN NY USA, mono)
  5. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    White label stereo
  6. Thoughts on Teddy Kotick?

    Ha - that photo of Teddy with the comb-over on ‘Further Explorations’ caught my eye too. Great, solid bassist.
  7. Happy Birthday Woody Shaw!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Fantastic version of ‘Think Of Me’ from that album played by Eddie Henderson’s Quartet on BBC radio last week, at a recent concert in Birmingham, UK.
  8. Gildo Mahones, RIP

    RIP - Great with Booker, Watkins and LH&R. Always regret not picking up that Prestige ‘Soulful Piano’ 2LP when I found a copy.
  9. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    I’ll buy that. Being 1965, mono was still the ‘norm’ over here, of course. Most of these would have been destined for radiograms !
  10. Don’t have any of the 180gs but the original Metheny German ECMs are all dead quiet and with exemplary sonics. I do have a couple of North American ‘original’ ECMs which are nowhere near as good - significant noise. The one I particularly like on the original ECM vinyl is ‘Rejoicing’. Billy Higgins never sounded better.
  11. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Mine is just the same (sleeve says mono but definitely stereo). They must have had. quality control issue that day !
  12. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Can’t believe it has taken me so long to hear this one. It’s brilliant. Agreed !
