@ sparrow:

the RHCP and Nickelback cuts were done by some stingy vinyl group called "simply vinyl"...

EDIT: correction, only the Nickelback one was cut by "simply vinyl", the other one was done by EMI so at least its half decent.

i haven't listened to the RHCP one yet, but the nickelback one is particularly uninteresting, theres hardly any difference between it and the cd version... no outstanding high frequencies... i sure hope the RHCP one isnt bad as well, they both cost $AU40... :(

Went to pick up some cleaning fluid yesterday and ended up with

Spoon - Gimme Fiction (so good) New
Art Pepper- intensity used

Both sound great (unfortuntely the Pepper has a scratch in one of the songs- but the rest of the disc is good enough to make it worth keeping) and are going to be in heavy rotation methinks.

Hi 20Hz,
I am a huge fan of Art Pepper and bought a copy of Intensity -new- many years ago at a Toronto store.Much to my dismay when I returned home I discovered that the record (a Canadian pressing) consisted of two side 1s back to back.
After returning to the store and picking up another record as no other copies of Intensity were available, it occurred to me later that I should have kept my copy as it may have become a collector's item.
Has any other member ever bought a record in that condition, I wonder?
Mike.

Reissue: A Journey Into Stereo Sound! Decca/London. 180 gram vinyl. A journey back to 1958 in a sterling introduction to stereo by the good people at Decca! Truly demonstrative of all the endearing aspects of vinyl. The "host" takes us "by the hand" from one thrilling demonstration to the next, in a very well prepared program. Among the best-sounding LPs ever, also. Purchased from http://www.amusicdirect.com First click on Vinyl, then, on the 180-Gram section. This one replaces the much-worn original in my collection.

Cheers

Hello Blue Angel,
No, the "Journey Into Stereo Sound" has SIDE 1: Cambrian Express Train, España, Girl Dancers, Edmundo Ros, Ernest Ansermet rehearsing Rite of Spring, Die Walkure springs into frightening reality, Racing cars at Goodwood, True Love by Mantovani (what massed strings!...cartridge eater), Ceremony of the Keys.
SIDE 2: Capriccio Espagnol, O Divine Redeemer-Flagstad (how her voice soars!), Only One of You, Another Time, Ted Heath Big Band, Backhaus and Vienna Philharmonic, Portrait Painter of Paree, closing moments of Symphonie Fantastique (Argenta/Paris Conservatoire)
Brilliant! Arresting! Extravagant! Sound sculptured in space...how true (in my medium/small room the illusion is aided by nearfield speaker setup).
To be sure, this is the best I've heard this LP (now in its reissued reincarnation) since I purchased it 49 years ago (1958)! First time I've heard the sound suspended (sculptured?) in space, away from the speakers, behind them, in a striking illusion!
b50
PS- by the way, the only band that shows wear on my original LP is the very last part of Symphonie Fantastique!

Hi b50

I've got this one too. If I want to make fun with the dogs, I play this one.

An observation. All of these original records I have, I did not buy new but acquired them at all kinds of places over the years. They are all still in excellent condition and proves to me that the kind of person or recordcollector really cared for his vinyl by being careful in setup and playing. The worst kind of record guaranteed to be 'shot'? Rock music or compilations of popular stuff. Those I don't buy anyway.

An LP showed up today. Does that count?

It is a 180 gram German pressing of Rickie Lee Jones' self-titled album. I don't typically listen to her work, or that sort of music, but this one is very good.
