How did you turntable/stylus handle the "Plantation Bag" torture test?

With ease. Have just given ‘Plantation Bag’ another spin, no issues noted.

Currently also incredibly rare due to yeast shortages as a result of the pandemic.

While marmite is terrible, this box set most certainly is not. :tup

That's the only Verve record in there, right?

More Pacific Jazz on the Jazz West Coast imprint. This series had some good compilations.

Agreed! IMO the best West Coast Compilation series I know.

This is the complete series

Julian Lage - Squint (Blue Note). I pre-ordered the Gray/Blue splatter LP just because it looked cool. :) It turns out they had Kevin Gray cut this and I've liked a lot of the Tone Poets he cut. It does sound very nice. Music is... different from what I expected. I've seen Lage play live a few times and this is less like that. He touches on many musical styles here. There's some country, some blues and some rock-lite tunes.

Dealt with my problem in the end. I decided to go for a Rega Plenar 3 with an upgraded Exact cartridge. It's more than I had wanted to spend but in retrospect I am very glad I did. 

Thanks everyone for the advice. Certainly more intelligible than what was on offer from the Hoffs.

That's going to sound great, I'm sure and within no time you'll have forgotten the cost as you wallow in the SQ :)

Did it come with toddler adaptations so they can play with it when Dad's not about?

Unfortunately that is basic functionality.

The youngest (11 months) is going through a charming stage where she pulls out my vinyl from the racks, admires it, sits on it and sometimes eats it. She has a particular taste for original India Navigation and Black Saint / Soul Note releases.

That picture made me laugh more than it should have done.  I've always thought India Navigation was a tasty label but not quite in those terms.  She has good taste!

She's not that talkative, but from what I've seen, nothing gets the punters coming back through the door like Arthur Blythe's Metamorphosis. Time and time again.

When my oldest daughter was 6 or 7, I had switched over to laser discs for her Disney movie watching because the VHS tapes wore out too fast. One day, she had a friend over and they decided to play hopscotch. They decided that those pretty Disney laser disc movie covers were the perfect size. Luckily, they only broke two. :)
