Just giving it a spin now....
Thanks but I didn't mean you HAD to listen to it right away... :lol:

But Fluke... OMG!!!

I once knew a band called Fluke in Washington, DC that I really liked and did computer work for (flyers and such as) and your post reminded me that they had run into a problem with their name because it was already in use... Could it be your Fluke? Time period seems correct. Can't, for the hell of me, remember what they changed their name to so that I don't know what happened to them but I still have one of their demo tape. A cherished treasure. :D

These Fluke were a british group that were really up there with people like Underworld and early chemical brothers, but they never really got the worldwide recognition they deserved. The track they're most known for is the club track which was remixed for The Matrix Reloaded but I still don't think it was that publisized that it was by them, was original called "Slap It" on a 12 minute single mix, well worth a listen:

They were superb though, Puppy was their last album in 2003, such a shame they stopped.

Picked up Marshall Crenshaw's first album a few weeks ago but only got around to playing it this weekend. I was reminded that it is truly one of the great power pop albums of all time and a favorite in my youth (I'm replacing many of the records that I sold off in bulk shortly after the beginning of the CD era in preparation for a cross country move. After all, LPs were obsolete, right? :triplefacepalm)

I also loved his second record, FIELD DAY which I ordered today from Discogs--NM for about three bucks + shipping. Also ordered the Grateful Dead's WAKE OF THE FLOOD remaster (brand new). So, yes, I did buy vinyl today!

I made it out to Assumption records again today and brought home a few more selections to cross off my list;

And I'm happy to say after playing all ten that nothing skipped, and while a few had some wear, none proved unlistenable or significantly damaged.

You do know that Marshall is a Detroit-born legend, growing up here in Berkeley, right? :-k

I have quite a bit of his stuff, in fact...I think you would also like "Mary Jean & 9 Others", his 1991 album, "Life's Too Short" and 1996's "Miracle Of Science", if you don't have them yet...Here are a few highlights from the man's career for you...

This was featured as a demo on the extended reissue CD of Marshall's debut album!



Here was one from "Life's Too Short"...



And then, another favorite...



Others are fans of Marshall, too, singing his praises...






He also wrote the theme for this film!



Did you know that Marshall did the first version of this Diane Warren tune that Carrie Underwood took to the top? :-k



He also helped write this hit song with members of Gin Blossoms...



My favorite online (and terrestrial) DJ, in fact, happens to be a huge fan! Listen to this! 8)

Great power pop, if that's your forte! 8)

Looks like a great haul, B...And I'm sure your friend will appreciate the time you took to find all those hole-fillers! =D>

We'll have to see some more pics of this place sometime! :wink:

Yea, Marshall is awesome. "You're My Favorite Waste Of Time" is clearly highly regarded given how many people have covered it. Add Bette Midler and the Bellamy Brothers to the list:





I love the original version, a demo, and a live staple that I do not think ever received the official studio treatment:

Brown Album by Primus(2018 reissue) - Arrived bowed. It plays great however: right up to the point on my automatic turntable where the arm returns to the cradle and the stylus swiped across the rim of the LP on the way back...with both LP's. So sick of that bullshit. Ignoring the QA ineptitude, the music itself has alot of detail not present on the original CD. Occasional pop and crackle but not bad. I'm keeping it because the music sounds great and plays in the groove without issue.

For You by Prince(2016 reissue) - Great quality pressing, but the mastering sounds like a modern digital remix, not something from 1978. This is not Prince's strongest material either, despite the great effort he expended to get it made. Pretty good overall if you are a fan. This did make me shy away from getting the reissue of the self-titled second album, as I don't want a digital mix for that one.

You Won't Get What You Want by Daughters - Wow, it sounds great and can be played loud without fear! Slight warping but very minimal. Surface noise is basically negligible. Very pleased with this one.

South of Reality by The Claypool Lennon Delirium - Slightly warped and noticeable surface noise but not bad in either case. Pink and Purple with blue splatter is certainly pretty to look at. The music sounds great. No regrets despite the somewhat elevated price.

Kimono my House by Sparks(2017 single LP reissue) - Pressing quality is good but the master sounds excessively compressed and a little harsh. I'm wondering if it's just the 2006 Universal CD cut to vinyl. I only kept it because I didn't want to bother trying to find a better sounding copy.

Grab yourself a Vinyl Flat and a Groovy Pouch, seriously worth the money, saved a few heat damaged and bowed records of mine without damaging them at all. Highly recommend.
