  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    The ‘W’ brigade would ban that one !
  2. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Never thought I’d ever post an album by a Country singer on a forum like this (I’m with Buddy Rich on this) but this is Bobbie Gentry and the album is very good indeed. Cover photo by Val Wilmer. Taken at the time of Gentry’s late 1960s BBC ‘specials’.
  3. What music did you buy today?

    Picked that one up as part of the RSD purchases. As it is raining today, good day to play it as well as the Harold Land. Good of Carter to do this signed edition for In-and-Out. Have been hearing good reports of their Rolf Kuhn 2x45 too.
  4. Don Ellis - The Lost Tapes Vol. 3

    Are they CDs or CD-Rs? Vols 1 and 2 on their site seem to be described as such.
  5. Covid Vaccination Poll Update

    All seems fairly normal round here. People in shops respecting spacing and by and large, still wearing masks. I figure that as long as I avoid raves/discos etc. (not difficult) things will probably be quite manageable. More normality has definitely returned. Can’t speak though for city dwellers..
  6. I remember Ward Swingle and the Swingle Singers being on BBC TV a lot about 45-50 years ago. Almost as common a sighting as Marcel Marceau ! Never did get a copy of that nice Philips 4CD box.
  7. Best track you heard all week

    Very good album. Found a copy on vinyl just before the pandemic. Subtle cover art - not !
  8. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Japanese Progressive issue/Teichiku
  9. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Yeah, ‘stealth’ Horace Tapscott session.
  10. Larry Young Mosaic.

    I’ve suspected that that is what is going on with at least one internet seller of jazz vinyl that I know of, who shall remain nameless.
  11. Larry Young Mosaic.

    Totally stark-raving nuts !
  12. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    The studio version has better sound and solos (eg. Shaw) in my opinion. Live version very nice addition. Quite different feel to the two versions. They should do a T-Shirt with that logo !
  13. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Easy one - Yes ! (apologies to your wallet)
  14. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Esquire 10” in great condition. According to the price sticker I paid $9.99 in New Zealand with a $20 discount. If I remember correctly the store also had 2 copies ! Early JR Monterose appearance. Imported by Chappell via Sydney according to back sticker. Repatriated by me !
