What vinyl are you spinning right now??

Thanks for your insight, ye olde guys! B-)

I have some LPs with small cuts on one side of the cover, too (similar as the things they "saw" into CD cases sometimes). Never bought LPs with cut-off corners, though I could have, but I like my discs and LPs to look at least halfway good...

I've bought LPs with cut-off corners but never if the cut off is on the spine, only if the cut corner was on the open end of the jacket. I at least want my LPs to look "whole" while viewing the spines on the record shelves. I have to admit that even though I've bought such LPs in the past due to monetary considerations, my heart always sunk a bit whenever I saw a cut corner rather than a tiny drill hole, thinking "why do they have to mutilate the product in order to mark it for discount?"

I never saw albums with a corner of the spine cut off, but still. What I have is a few that have saw-cuts somewhere, these though may be in the spine, but they're usually very small, so... my Sam Rivers "Contrasts" has such a cut, 2cm deep, on the top of the cover, pretty close to the opening. Not as bad as a corner cut off.

Pascal Diatta & Sona Mane': Simnade' (Rogue).

Senegalese guitarist/Vocalist and his vocalist spouse. Not something I've listened to regularly, but a good change up.

I love this set, I couldn't compare the sound quality with original or different pressings or cd because I have only this set, but for me the sound is ok, considering it's a live recording. Strongly recomended, as every Miles' Mosaic. ;)

"New Orleans Jazz Heritage 1976 Festival"

This two record set was recorded live at the festival and is magnificent, I think.

The album featured Professor Longhair, Allen Toussaint, Lightenin' Hopkins, Irma Thomas, Ernie K-Doe, Lee Dorsey, Robert Parker and Earl King.

Great stuff!!

"Pub Crawling with Jimmy Deuchar" from 1956 featuring a 21 year old Tubby Hayes on tenor and a 21 year old Vic Feldman. Every track is named after a brand of beer and, like the originals, the music is pretty damned good. The copy I have is American, issued by Contemporary Records and has that lovely thick card cover I remember so well from when the first Electra albums arrived here in Scotland sometime in the early sixties. Gee, I feel old. Stamped all over the cover is "SAMPLE RECORD NOT FOR SALE. I got this on ebay some time ago but "lost" it amongst the junk pile that has taken over "my" study. Very nice - I just wish I had been into Jazz when I was young and had seen Tubby in particular play.

Freddie Roach 'Mo' Greens Please'. This one is the NY USA mono original but also deep-grooved on both sides. Most unusual for this title.

To be followed up with Paul Desmont 'Live at Bourbon Street' (A&M Horizon, 2LPs). Recorded live at a club in Toronto.

I agree. I've found some of the Stanley T BN-LA's in minty condition and they sound superb! :tup

So my wife and I had a "date night" this weekend. In celebration of the 11th anniversary of our first date. :tup

And the little sweetie surprises me with a sealed copy of the reissued Coltrane "Heavyweight Champion" boxed set!!!

I mean !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Like WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!

What a nice package...much nicer than the cd set. All I've played so far have sounded just fabulous!

She also gave me a sealed copy of "Miles Davis Greatest Hits" on Prestige from 1966! I'd been eyeing this one at the record store...promo copy...never opened...$30. It's in just perfect shape. Played well, but didn't sound as good as the Coltranes...but did with a little eq! :tup

Great vinyl weekend! B-)
