:) deck here on a blue note roll this morning.

there appears to have been a blip in the time-space-dimension thingy with the consequence that i seem to have aquired an extra hour of life?!

first up on the mission 775sm is lee morgan's 'delightfulee' then donald byrd's 'free form' followed by blue mitchell's 'down with it' but i'm about to break up the blue and white hegemony with a riverside contribution in the shape of yusef latiff's 'the centaur and the phoenix'

later it will be off with the beret and shades and on with the 'pimp suit' while i run through some 70's soul funk disco before i trudge off to the satanic mill known as work...

RCA Italiana Opera Orchestra and Chorus, "Un Ballo in maschera", apart from Leontyne Price as Amelia, Shirley Verett as a fantastic Ulrica. This is vinyl at its best.

The following LPs are getting regular platter time at my place.

Having said that my original copy of "LKJ in Dub" is pretty much worn out and while I do have the CD rerelease, it has no bass, which is pretty scandalous for a dub album, so if any one knows where to source a vinyl copy, I'm all ears. Thanx, Joel.

Lucinda Williams: "Sweet Old World" (2003)
Patricia Barber: "Modern Cool" (2000?)
UB40: "Present Arms in Dub" (1980s)
Linton Kwesi Johnson: "LKJ in Dub" (1980)
Gong: "Expresso" (1976)
Soft Machine: "Seven" (1976)

Starboy,

Many thanks for the URL!

Seems as if the UK supports a lot more dub artists than this side of the pond. Too bad I never took advantage of these riches when I lived in England.

Best regards,

Joel.

No drama, gonna see Horace Andy at the Jazz Cafe tomorrow. My mates in Courtney Pine's band so I get a lot of live freebies.

Pick up a copy of:

IN THE LIGHT [HORACE ANDY] IN THE DUB. ON 180 GRAM: SIMPLY VINYL LABEL.

A killer sonically and musically. ;-)

Foetus - 'Hole', 'Nail', 'Sink' and 'Flow'

Jim Thirlwell's 'Flow' never made it to vinyl (!) but despite this it's definately a return to form and I'm going to track down the remix CD 'Blow' soon. After an hour or so of the new(ish) album I put on my worn old copy of 'Nail' and by the time 'Enter the Exterminator' had finished I knew it was going to be a (loud) Foetus day; sometimes nothing else will do :wink:

Regards,
JaS

Social Distortion - Mommy's Little Monster

A great record, although imho not as good as the bands later records. If there is anyone who knows where i can get hold of the vinyl edition of "LIVE AT THE ROXY" please let me know.

Norah Jones - Come Away With Me

I don't really get that cosy feeling that I know that I should get. Ms Jones is very skilled, but in my opinion something is missing. The hurt and sadness is there but still....

Right now the record is on loan for evaluation. The next few days will decide whether or not I will buy it. The sound is however really really good, as it should be from a Classic Records 200g QUIEX SV- P reissue.

Gavin Friday and the man Seezer 'Each man kills the thing he loves'

Mines a very poor pressing but it's still one of my favourite albums of the 80's. A dozen bitter sweet love songs including covers of 'Next' by Brel and 'Death is not the end' by Dylan. A perfect album.

Regards,
JaS

Oh Mercy - Bob Dylan

Probably the best sounding "standard" LP I own. I keep playing it as it sounds so great.

"Oh Mercy - Bob Dylan"

Agree, it's a superb recording. I often play it for friends to hear how good vinyl can sound.

Think I'll give it a spin right now!....
