"...And when I awoke, I was alone, this bird had flown
So I lit a fire, isn't it good, Norwegian wood...."
Right now, The Rolling Stones - Tattoo You
Little T&A is the gem here. ;)
One of my latest $1 swap meet finds spinning right now....
Albert King/Little Milton - Chronicle
Good Stuff - I love listening to Albert King
Just finished: Dire Straights - Love Over Gold
Excellent pressing, very detailed sound
Spinning right now: B.B. King - The Electric B.B. King
Straight-ahead King, baby. :)
Alice by Tom Waits.
Just one today, Elvis Costello - Punch The Clock
Bought it at the swap meet for $1 because it was so shiny and minty. Wasn't impressed with it; The pressing is really poor. I've found that to be the case with most albums pressed in the 80's...... they changed something during that time, and most of the LP's from that era sound flat to me.
Just Finished, Delbert McClinton - The Jealous Kind
Right now, Ry Cooder - Into the Purple Valley
Today, so far....
Chet, Floyd, & Boots Chet Atkins, Floyd Cramer, and Boots Randolf - the very definition of the "Nashville Sound"
Tom Petty - Southern Accents Not a huge Petty fan, but it only cost a buck and I've never heard it. So far, it's pretty good.
i've owned elvis' punch the clock on album, cassette and cd. all versions seem like they're 'missing' a production layer. a little tinny and flat.
don't go out and get another one cuz i think it's full of fail.
his next one after that, goodbye cruel world, had only slightly better production. contrasting those with the two elvis albums (imperial bedroom 1982 & king of america 1986) bookends
makes the blah production that much more noticeable. i had forgotten about it till you mentioned it tho...
^^^ Thanks for the heads-up. I know a few folks that like his stuff, so if I come across any more for a buck they go into the trade pile. :)
Spinning right now, B.B. King - L.A. Midnight A really nice sounding 1972 ABC pressing.
Stuck on B.B. King for the moment....
Bobby Bland & B.B. King Together Again...Live
A nice one from 1976, recorded live at the Coconut Grove in Los Angeles
J.J. Cale - Troubadour
Adele - 21
haven't heard it on vinyl but i'm dying to...david bowie-heathen 2002...especially tracks #1 sunday & #4 slow burn.
Houses of the Holy just finished.
Dug out my minty copy of Some Girls - that'll be next......
rust in peace megadeth \m/\m/
Didn't listen to vinyl at all when I was in the UK for 3 weeks but I'm back now so
it's been British theme for me
Lindesfarne Fog on the Tyne
Ralph McTell You Well Meaning Brought Me Here
The Kinks The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society
Just finished, Rolling Stones - Some Girls
Up next, SRV - Texas Flood. The guitar work on this is so good..... I wish I could have seen him live.
Just got back from the swap meet with some more $1 scores. Among them, Albert King I'll Play The Blues For You and John Lee Hooker I'm John Lee Hooker (Vee-Jay label, from 1959) Can't wait to get those two cleaned....... :)
Also picked up some Aerosmith, Leon Redbone, Bobby Bland, Fleetwood Mac, ZZ Top, and a few others I can't remember. Mostly trade bait, but I might keep the Aerosmith Live and Leon Redbone, depending on how they sound.
