I have never - repeat, "never" - heard you include you includer the words "a tad" in that thought before.




And you're still wrong about them being overrated.

And, I agree with you so completely it shakes me to my very core.


Just finished listening to Sgt Pepper's. Nice melodies and pleasant enough ditties.... but I stick by my assessment.

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.

highly underrated as it is sandwiched between two superior albums-making movies & brothers in arms. 'private investigations,' 'telegraph road' & the title track are all great.

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.

Yeah - but the pressing is so flat sounding it wasn't nice to listen to.

Dire Straights is one of my favorite bands, and I have all of their stuff.

Yup - side 2 is da bomb. This one only cost me a buck, too.

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.

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.
