Postby JaS » 18 Nov 2003 16:32

A couple more oldies made there way to my deck today:

Sven Vath - An Accident in Paradise (very trancey)
Soft Cell - The Art of Falling Apart (extreme anger management)

Happy Listening,
JaS

Playing tonight:

Primal Scream "Dixie-Narco EP"

The Jamms/KLF "Shag Times" (can I say that?) :wink:

Bit of a puzzle actually this one, I bought it brand new from my local HMV this afternoon, but I thought that the KLF deleted their entire back catalogue in the early 90's so either:

1)it's a reissue? (but no "reissue" stickers etc.)
2)it's a bootleg pressing? (unlikely I'd have thought)
or
3)it's been sat in the stockroom of said HMV for the last 10 years or so?!!

Weird.

Oh and a bit of John Peel on radio 1.

A very relaxing listen!
And apparently its supposed to be worth a few quid too?

I recently found in a garage sale a complete collection of John Mayall's LPs(w and w/o The BluesBreakers) same thing for the Beatles original LPs and 3 excellent Aynsley Dunbar's LPs all unopened, still plastic wrapped !

I had to force myself to stay calm (I was shaking inside !) when the guy asked me 1$ for each LP (Yeeesss !!!) Don't ask me what I'm listening these days !!!

JaS, two questions:
1)how does that compare to Psyence Fiction?
2)If it's on vinyl, where did you get it from?

Cheers!

I'm a fairly new convert to unkle and have only got a copy of Psyence Fiction on CDR from a friend but I'd say they both have their strengths, but for me the new album hooked me more.

Easy enough to get on vinyl too. Amazon UK have it in std and picture disc; pretty expensive at £17.99 but you do get it spread across 3 discs :)

Cheers,
JaS

BTW your post inspired me to dig out my battered old copies of travelogue and reproduction. Those analogue synth bass lines still sound amazing...

Right, well that's got me a copy on order :D - Couldn't find it locally for love nor money.

The Human League albums do sound great, I'm coming to them for the first time really, having been too young at the time! :P

Pillows and Prayers

Postby JaS » 23 Jan 2004 19:07

I spent 99p of my hard earned pocket money on this when I was a lad and it still gets pulled out from time to time. Highlights included Joe Crow's 'Compulsion' with a synth sound that sounded dated even back then! Also features tracks by both Tracey Thorne and Ben Watt; and one from their latest project 'Everything but the Girl'. This topped the UK indie charts for 20 weeks and deservedly so, fabulous stuff...

Jumble sales ROCK!

Postby Mark E Smith's Dentist » 07 Feb 2004 23:55

I was at a jumble sale today and I scored some great original Dave Brubeck records for 40p each that looked like they hadn't been played since the 60s. I got a copy of Pillows and Prayers at a car boot sale last year and I didn't pay more than 99p. My father introduced me to John Mayalls Blues Breakers and I love that too but as Elvis Costello said talking about music is like dancing about architecture so I'll stop.

Hi JaS,

HMV-Amazon here in Canada is still saling vinyls at a good price and often I buy both the vinyl and the CD just to compare ! I didn't found to date a CD player rending the full presence of a good TT and be assured that I have try a lot of them. The only ones approaching vinyl-like presence are the tubes ones, top of their respective lines, they are not cheap and even then we still are at the mercy of mass manufactured (often low grade) CDs production.

Unlike vinyls, still today, only few labels produce very good quality CDs (Narada, Sheffield's Lab, Windham Hill, Proprius, Three Blind Mice etc.) and they don't necessairly produce LPs anymore. I had, over the years to renew some of my rare vinyls titles in CDs but I rarely found one sounding like the original LP (they are not all remastered yet and I think that is part of the problem, they are not all fitted to be played digitally !) and as always, when I want presence, vinyl is still playing !
