I've never seen a Dial classical LP in the flesh. Then again, I didn't start looking at classical LPs until a few years ago.

I've got one of the Dial Schoenbegs, #2 maybe? (red/red-orange color), that my uncle bought back in the day. Chamber Symphony #1, iirc.

I'll have to look when I get back home. HEAVY vinyl.

Maybe it's jsut for looking, but I went back to a Half-Price I hit good about a month ago and found more stuff this time. Again "great" or not, we'll see. But at these prices, it's big fun to just have the chance to find out!

Teo's apparently involved here.

Because my appetite for cynicism continues unabated.

...and suddenly it dawns on me that thre was "classical music" before Bach...

The recent Sauter-Finegan discussion did not go without impact. No expectations of greatness, but guys like this very often find a way to get their shit in there somehow, somewhere. So let's see.

Sister Rosetta in 1961 produced by Creed Taylor, who knew? Again, Verve - The Bottomless Pit Of Who Knew?

Been having good luck with this vintage of Turnabout things, onward until proven otherwise!

Jack Jones LPs abound in the used bins here, but I don't need all that. What made this one look like it needed to follow me home was the tune selection (in spite of YuckPerople), especially "Lush Life". Sinatra backed out, Jack Jones did not, one more reason why I don't mind buying the occasioanl Jack Jones record. Skills aplenty all over the place. This seems to have a whill of fuckyouFrank,maybe to it. If so, hey, Jack Jones, game on.

2 LPs for $2.00. Vinyl looks totally clean. No way not to buy it.

All this music for $54.00 + tax,

Was on vacation and found these for $.50 each at thrift store. Maybe not major fines but once I cleaned nicotine away they both sound decent.

I can never look at a Boyd Raeburn disc with Ginny Powell on it the same way ever again. Aric's granpa. :)

Found at the local record show in a box labeled "Blue Notes In Here." Everything in the box was beat up and caked with debris. This one *only* had a thick layer of crud but with no discernible damage. Two soaks on the VPI and as many baths on the KL and it came out nice and clean, at least a VG+. Not bad for a twenty.
