What vinyl are you spinning right now??

What would happen if Homefromtheforest would put a sub-$ 100 record on his turntable?

Anyway, great choices!

I need to justify my extravagant purchases over the last 25 years by actually playing them ;)

yeah, I feel the same way. My most monetarily valuable records have definitely received quite a fair amount of careful play.

The Human Arts Ensemble - Live vol.II [Circle Records]

definitely less than $100 but well worth a listen nonetheless :)

$9 good music and $500 good music are often equally good.


Or, the same music on an original Hank Mobley 1568 is on the CD...

With you there although I've never knowingly listened to any $500 good music

Hampton Hawes afternoon here,

The Sermon- 1958 recording , 80s Fantasy "digital issue"

The Green Leaves of Summer- 1964 recording, 70s issue on very thin vinyl

I'm all smiles- 1966 recording , 1973 issue (original?)

I wasn't impressed by Smiles, perhaps the material but it did very little to float my boat , so it goes on the sale pile. The other two were better with Green Leaves perhaps the more interesting. Sermon is more boppish whereas Green Leaves seems more transitional to his later style.

Yes, that would be the original of I'm All Smiles. It's ok, band and material looks like it would be cooler than it is. I prefer Spanish Steps (Woode and Taylor) and would like to hear Hamp's Piano on Saba/MPS (Weber, Weiss).

Mike Osbourne / Stan Tracey---------Tandem-------(Ogun)

Not too sure that Stan has mastered the idiom. He follows Osbourne around in an unconvincing manner. The whole thing is more of a curiosity really . It's better when freer passages give way to form.

Rena Rama, Landscapes (JAPO). Interesting Swedish band with Lennart Åberg, Bobo Stenson and Palle Danielsson. The drummer on this one, Leroy Lowe, is not Swedish and was a new name for me. He was from Pittsburgh and moved to Sweden in the 1970s. Here's a bio: http://www.touchemusic.se/leroylowe.html

In addition to what's listed on the link, Leroy Lowe played on a couple of Khan Jamal Steeplechase records: Dark Warrior and The Traveler.

I have the CD version of this. The source is a cassette tape from the soundboard. Not the best sound but more than passable. Fine performances as you would expect from these individuals. A worthy purchase for fans of Red.

Definitely a "pop" record, but I love it.
