Re: The VINYL Thread!

I picked up Butch Devo and the Sundance Gig, Otis Redding and the Muppet Movie soundtrack.
Really wanted the Sam Cooke, Ghostbusters and Devo live at Max's but those went right away. I'll try to find some places online.

Skipping RSD but getting the Under the Skin score:



I'm thinking a shitload of vinyl enthusiasts saw the film yesterday, because I wasn't going to buy it right away since Amazon said it had 16 copies left but when I checked this morning it said that there was only 1 left. I had to snag it.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I snapped a few pics of my current setup. I just moved and got rid of the stand I was using. I've been thinking of building a custom stand for it. I also still have to put vinyl on the first shelf.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Very retro and very cool.

You don't actually set that device on the speaker do you? Or was that just for the picture? Never set anything on your speakers, because you will get bad or distorted playback. Let those bad boys breathe.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I haven't figured out where I'm going to put it yet. The two vinyl shelves are new so I'm trying different stuff. That device is a magnavox cd player from 1988. Best cd player I've ever had. It will play scratched cds that no other player will play.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

My mom bought the Boston Acoustics in 1981 along with the equalizer which isn't hooked up. I have her original receiver around, but it's not working.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

What is the cheapest yet best quality way to start up a turntable listening station.

I've been following this thread (had vinyl in the past, shitty player tho), and will buy the Orbit U-Turn. However, I do not have a receiver nor a pre-amp (or anything else that must be needed). I have 5.1 logitech speakers with a sub that I am hoping I can use as speakers for the turntable. I spent time researching but am still in need of some help. What specific item recommendations would you guys make for someone on a budget who is willing to pay a bit more for higher quality. I'm not trying to break the bank but if it's worth it for the upgrade I'll do it. Recommendations?

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I've gotten good stuff at thrift shops and flea markets. It just takes time and multiple trips to find it. I got the receiver in my post above for $30 at a flea market. It's mint and came with the original box, packing materials, and manual. It would have cost me several hundred dollars elsewhere.

I prefer vintage equipment. If that's the route you want to take, I suggest checking out audiokarma.org.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I didn't get any of the exclusives this year. I probably would have gotten the Notorious BIG if they had it when I got there at 1:00 or so this afternoon.

Instead I got:
Talking Heads '77
Pavement - Slanted and Enchanted
Lou Reed - Transformer
The Hollies - Best of
Beach Boys - Endless Summer
Elton John - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
Buddy Holly - 20 Golden Greats

All for ~$80 or so

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I wanted to get the RSD Death Cab, but I missed out on that. I did pick up

Opeth -- Watershed
Motorhead -- Aftershock
Dream Theater -- Illumination Theory
Green Day -- Demolicious


I also got a Matador records sampler, mainly because it was $2.99 and it has at least 2 songs I liked on it and some bands I have at least heard of

Re: The VINYL Thread!

This was my first time showing up for Record Store Day. I got there at like 8:30 and waited in line for over 2 hours in the rain before I even got in the store. And even then it was another 10 minutes before I even touched a record. I was only really looking for Death Waltz's release of the Bronx Warriors soundtrack, which they didn't have by the time I got in there. There was nothing else I was too excited about, but I grabbed a Veruca Salt It's Holy for the hell of it, I used to really like them before I discovered metal.

Either way, it was pretty fun despite the rain, and I should be on the news briefly later on tonight, a reporter was in the store interviewing a guy right behind me. Here's the print story, I'm in the brown jacket next to the guy with the black and white umbrella:

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Have my eyes peeled for Only Lovers Left Alive vinyl score. It's about 30 with tax through Amazon. I will wait for it to go down in price.

Wow. Glad you had a good time.

Again, it makes me think how very fortunate I am to live where I do. Got to the first store we visited about 40 minutes before they opened, and were fourth in line. Got free coffee and donuts while we waited. By the time the doors opened at 9am, the line stretched back to the end of the building, but everyone was very cool. Got in, was able to get everything I was looking for, and my friend almost everything he wanted. No pushing, shoving or craziness. If you saw something you wanted, but couldn't quite reach it, all you had to do was ask, and someone closer would hand it go you. Left with a nice goodie bag along with my purchases, too. Then it was off to store number 2, where we were able to get the other couple of records my buddy was looking for, under pretty much the same circumstances as the first store.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

My first RSD was very positive, with the exception of some cow in line behind us who was getting all bent out of shape for numerous reasons. Everyone else was very cool and it was nice to talk to some people who've been doing this for a very, very long time. One thing that sucked is the wind was strong and had a serious bite to it for the time I waited in line, I was freezing my ass off for a very long time.

Only bummer was that I wasn't able to get the College - Northern Council as my store didn't receive any. If for some reason anyone is looking for Dessa's Castor the Twin or Atmosphere's Lake Nokomis single, and would like to do a trade of sorts, I would gladly be able to as my local store has a decent amount of both for the print runs being low, regional release I'm sure.

Only managed to pick up the Garbage 10" and the Harry Dean Stanton 7". My store didn't even get any copies of Green Day or Veruca Salt, which were the two I really wanted.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Went back out to find the Doors, Muppet Movie or maybe Sharon Jones that I missed. No luck. Lots of unpopular stock left, but not a lot I recognized. I did find one copy of The Ramones 10" and grabbed it.

Check my local indie store's online site tomorrow. They ship nationwide, and usually get a decent amount of RSD stuff between all their locations, and will put up the leftovers available for sale then. Don't know if they will have what you're looking for among that, but their prices are excellent, and it sure beats going through eBay flippers.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Just saw a post on FB from Encore Records here in Austin that I didn't visit yesterday. Apparently Aziz Ansari was a customer yesterday. Pretty cool. That was probably the spot to visit even if you got up a little late. Waterloos line was crazy by 8 am.

Thanks for the heads-up! That's awesome. I was able to snag a College - Northern Council, so now I'm only looking for the Farcry 3: Blood Dragon Soundtrack...I'm keeping my eyes peeled for when they hit the website...I'm sure it'll be a frenzy.
