Just finished back-to-back:

Led Zeppelin IV


Led Zeppelin
(1st album)

Good, good straight-ahead Zeppelin, on nice sounding early pressings. Especially the 1st album..... all vintage gold.

Just finished, Johnny Winters - Second Winter
Spinning now, Dean Martin - Remember, I'm The One Who Loves You

If Deano can't help you get the panties off of the object of your desire, there is no hope for you.

Discovered these kids as I was watching auditions on the UK's "Britain's Got Talent" and believe it or not, they were beaten out by a dancing dog.

He is 17 years old and she is 16... their debut album was released in September and I plan to buy it after hearing most of the tracks and want to support these artists.


The audition on the show was in itself, was a truly remarkable event as I do not think anyone expected this wonderful.

Oh, I miss my Kenwood "The Rock" turntable. Guaranteed, I'd be listening to some Dire Straits or Pink Floyd now. But, listening to "Mark Knopfler and Chet Atkins: Neck and Neck" on my MacBook. Probably some David Gilmour next. I love my vinyl though. I listen to them when I go and visit my dad on leave.

Huh - someone released a debut LP recently? That's bold - mostly it's just been re-issues on vinyl. Personally, I'd have gone with CD or downloadable media, especially for a first effort.

I wonder what market they're going for - mostly us old folks with turntables any more, although the hipsters are starting to get wise.....

This is a truly amazing album that features Anoushka Shankar's older half sister, Geethali Norah Jones Shankar... they are both the daughters of Ravi Shankar.

"Breathing Under Water"

I'll start with the last three I just spun today, while working in my office:

Long John Baldry - Everything Stops For Tea
Roy Buchannan - Livestock
Dwight Yoakam - Buenas Noches From a Lonely Room

Anyone else listening to music regularly, the old fashioned way?
Oh snap.

All my vinyl is packed away and the 20,000 or so albums we have circulating round in our family have all been replaced by digital copies unless there is nothing to replace it.

When I think album I think of entire collections / releases.

And LP's are so hard to take with me when I travel in the car or on the bike.

Nice mellow stuff, and I'll Be Gone on side 2 is really nice.

Spinning something different today, Doris Day - Doris Day's Greatest Hits

This is a near mint 1958 Columbia "six eye" pressing that I picked up at a swap meet for $2, and it sounds marvelous. I don't care what you think of her movies or this kind of music - the girl could sing.

Just finished Miles Davis - B!tches Brew

I have never really listened to jazz, but a lot of folks I know recommended this one as the one to listen to.

I gotta be honest - I didn't care for it much. Just a bunch of musicians wandering aimlessly over the musical landscape with no particular place to go, and then it finally trails off. Better than rap and hip-hop, but that's about it.

I don't "get" jazz.

^i understand your critique of *****es brew. it's a tuff album to digest. don't give up just yet on jazz. try miles davis-sketches of spain,
charles mingus-mingus ah um or charles mingus-mingus mingus mingus mingus mingus (track one 'II bs' swings like no other and has incomparable bass notes). great big band sounds. also try wayne shorter-speak no evil. if you haven't sampled the samba stuff of stan getz-especially getz/gilberto with 'girl from ipanema' on it, do so. that stan getz samba stuff from the early 60's is dreamy, romantic and timeless. guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a spring in your step.

as an aside...how do you feel about these 3 'jazz-rock' albums:

van morrison-astral weeks?

joni mitchell-the hissing of summer lawns?

jeff beck-blow by blow?

I like Jeff Beck, the other two I haven't listened to.

I just gave Benny Goodman ‎– The Famous 1938 Carnegie Hall Jazz Concert - Vol. 2 a spin, and I liked that quite a bit.

Picked up a pristine copy of Rosanne Cash Seven Year Ache at the swap meet for $1.

Just "pretty good" up till What Kind of Girl?. Wow - that woke me up. She really wrings it out, and Albert Lee on the lead was icing on the cake. That one cut alone was worth the buck.

Here's a Youtube video of her doing it with Carl Perkins, Dave Edmunds, et al.....

Went down to Monterey for the weekend, and found a couple of nice used vinyl stores. I bought a bunch of nice LP's, and played a couple today:

1) Albert King - New Orleans Heat - A 1978 Tomato label pressing, in excellent condition.
2) Albert Collins - Trash Talkin' - A 1969 Liberty label pressing, in excellent condition.

Some good blues, here.

On the turntable right now, Albert King - The Lost Session

Produced by John Mayall, who also plays on several of the tracks.

Wow, just wow. And this copy is NM - just a delight for the ears.
