Re: The VINYL Thread!

Finally re-joined the Vinyl party. Picked up a mint Technics SL-D2 TT for $1 at a rummage. Also picked up a few albulms, Club Nouveau and The Police. Lol

Probably not much different, except it didn't ruin CDs.

So my project is finally done for a while. Traded in my Luxman pre and got this nifty tube pre. And those are the rejiggered Hafler amps. They aint pretty on the outside! And yes that's a Jurassic Park on the TT with the new Ortofon Bronze still breaking in



I'm fapping it.

What grinds my gears is that the system I bought for her sounds better than mine! It's not the TT though, as I have a Technics SL-1500 with Shure 97, which is better than the Gemini + AT-95 I got for her. Turns out it's the speakers. The Infinitys I got for her have bigger cabinets than my Klipschs, thus more bass.

So now I'm speaker shopping.

Hoping to see them when they play here Saturday night. Also hoping they have that record at the merch table.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I finally got my first 1st pressing Blue Note. Near mint. 1956.



I've been concentrating on vintage jazz as of late. I got a bunch of 6-eye Columbia Miles albums too.

^ Blue Note! Yummy!

I've been buying a few of the $20 digitally sourced reissues. They aren't bad.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Does anyone have the Mo-Fi pressing of Bob Dylan's Desire? I'm just curious as I have listened to this album endlessly for weeks now and would really like to pick this up in the near-future.

Very cool. Here's a photo of me with the band a number of years ago in Atlanta.

Synth-heavy scores are my ultimate weakness. Pre-ordered.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Ah hell, why not. $20? It's not like I could spend that on Mondo Batman releases this week. Harley and Joker are sold out apparently.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

All of the Batman releases are sold out (a few Mr. Freeze remain, but should be gone today), except Man-Bat, which has been held up in customs... will probably be offered on the web site.

T'was a great show indeed tonight, but how can a band have a "record release party", but not have the FUCKING RECORD to sell???

They played some songs off it though. I think you'll enjoy the new record when you get it.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

You know you're a vinyl addict when you go to Comic-Con, and still somehow end up buying records. In my case, I got this:


It's a rock opera based on H.P. Lovecraft's The Dreams in the Witch House. It's on purple tinted translucent 180g vinyl. Can't wait to give it a spin

I hate to be a downer here, but I listened to that on Spotify and thought it was some of the worst drivel I'd heard in years.

Then I'd better not tell you what I paid for it.

They pimped the hell out of it at the Lovecraft panel. If it sucks like you say it does, I'll know who's opinions NOT to trust next time

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I mean, I was excited for it as well, because I'm a huge Lovecraft fan and a rock opera based on one of his best stories sounded awesome. But the music does not match the ambition.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Cake is rereleasing the RSD boxset. It's up for preorder here. I read somewhere that they were unhappy about how RSD went down, with the sets ending up on ebay for ridiculous prices.


I know I've mentioned Self here before when their first album got a rerelease on Fat Possum. They've got a new EP out. It's availabe on 10 inch clear vinyl. Limited pressing of 1000 albums. They've been getting a bit of much deserved attention this week. Their song Runaway is the itunes single of the week.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

A friend of mine sent me the Mondo Mr Freeze variant. Worst sounding Mondo record I've heard. Thought it sounded like someone held a mic up to a TV speaker!
