  1. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    I was up a good chunk of the night...; couldn't sleep...; pain. But I gave a spin to Side 1 of Keith Jarretts "Expectations" sometime about 4am. I was groovin', sorta, and was finally starting to nod off towards the end of the side. We've recently had a nasty infestation of yellowjacket wasps in a corner of the exterior of our family room, where the stereo is. They've been getting inside; was killing 20-40 wasps a day inside the house. It's sealed up now and their presence is diminishing. Well, there was a part that started up, must've been Dewey's sax, but it sounded just like a friggin' wasp in my right ear! I fuckin' freaked, tearing off the headphones, batting my hands about...; going from a state of peace and relaxation to a complete eruption of activity, fear, stress,... I kinda laughed afterwards, but dang...scared the sheet out of me! This one might be heading to the "sell" pile...heh...

  12. Mega cd sale continued. Hard to find items

    PM coming on Quebec Soul Samba TOCJ.
  13. Wow...this thread is dead as a doornail. Let's breathe some life into it. I'll start: Up for grabs is LP of Bo Diddley Is A Gunslinger. 1988 Chess/MCA reissue cut by Greg Fulginitti at Artisan. VG+ throughout with the exception of the cut corner upper right. Tried to sell it on the SH board with no takers. Cost me $10, but I'd gladly offer it up here to revive this thread. Please post in this thread to claim it, followed by your PM. P.S. The DP album is not available... I'll see if I can find some more too. Oh, how 'bout this one: Cd of Gary McFarland & Co "Does The Sun Really Shine On The Moon"? on Skye/DCC Jazz DJZ-634. Jewel case has a broken hinge. If that bothers you just say so and I'll try to find a replacement lid... Post first, then PM. P.S. Only the McFarland disc is available...
  14. Exterminate all the brutes

    They're all surely from digital too. But, I did buy the version of Miles Ahead (chick cover, stereo mix) just to have the corrected stereo version on a clean LP. It sounds okay...; nothing earth shattering. And they are $20 to $25...so they're definitely not cheap.
  15. MCA/Impulse reissues

    Yep. I have a few (Out of the Cool, Blues & the Abstract Truth,...) and I think they're outstanding. They say they're digital, but they sound analog to me. Some have stickers stating cut at Kendun Mastering on some nice vinyl blend. They're real quiet. I did recently compare the Out of the Cool one with a green label ABC 70's pressing that real clean too. They sound different...; this test made me wonder that they could possibly be from digital or that there is possible noise reduction. It sounds great on its own. It's only when you start comparing them, that you really take notice of the differences. I wouldn't hesitate to buy any of these. They're usually very clean and quiet. If it's cheap and you can't find a quiet vintage pressing, I'd say go for it.
