Holy shit, that does look cool!
Is that a reissue? I'm having trouble findind it.
It’s an original. Perfect condition. It’s kind of an ugly cover I think, but the music is great. How many albums have an entire radio format named after them?
The jacket looks brand new! Happy listening.
Chuffed to bits that Teenage Fanclub have re-released their albums at last. I got in within the first couple of hours of pre-orders & managed to get these two signed copies
Picked up G n R Appetite For Destruction “Alternative Album” white vinyl, used during a Labor Day Sale. It has the original cover art that retailers refused to carry back in the day. This is one of those bands that brings back a lot of good memories for me. If you see the “Alternative Album” do not buy it! The pressing is so bad I literally thought something in my chain was broken. Changed headphones, then amps, recharged the shadow then slapped my forehead and changed the album. The last time I heard something this bad it was due to a component failure. DO NOT BUY!
Picked this up on a recent trip to the record store along with some other good albums. This is a brand new pressing. I almost bought a 1975 third pressing for $50 but it had some major scuff marks despite the VG+ rating it was given. If I already had the album on vinyl and I wanted something collectible I would've picked it up. This one sounds incredible and flawless. Now I just need some frames for the included posters.
Edit: Moving on to something heavier... Wow this album sounds so much better on vinyl than the CD rip that I have.
Pretty scratchy but still enjoyable. Hank Williams.
Finally in my hands. Went looking for the cd but they only had the vinyl.
Yggdrasil has kept me away from vinyl too long. The Daktaris reissue brought me back. My brother got this CD probably 20 years ago and won’t give it up, so I bought the vinyl reissue which was remastered from the analog tapes. Never heard this album sound so good. Heavy heavy afrobeat.
Not a giant fan of Greatest Hits albums, but I couldn't sleep on this one.
That Steely Dan greatest hits is awesome, I think they remastered all those songs for that album, so they sound better than the original releases, to my ear.
OK, so I'm out of work right now, so what better way to spend my time and rapidly dwindling cash than on this extravagance!! Just came in the mail today. I know what I'm doing for the next few days!
Let's see if this SRX vinyl is for real...
All this talk of Steely Dan made be bust out this gem...
1972 pressing of Can't Buy a Thrill, picked up last year in my local record shop for about $10. It in great shape and sounds excellent. Surface noise is basically non-existent after a thorough cleaning.
Just finished listening to two SRX albums. Unfortunately the Horace Silver album appears to be defective, it has a couple of dozen instances of distortion that I don't think are in the master. It's a "tearing" sound, mostly on piano attacks, but I think is in the pressing. Not sure how it works, but I'll have to return it to Music Matters, hopefully they can explain it. It also seems to have a slight bit of WOW and I'm wondering if the pressing is just slightly off center or if it was mastered that way. The Hank Mobley record is spectacular.
Now to this new SRX vinyl. Wow, it is incredibly quiet, in fact, it's disconcerting. It's more like listening to a CD than a record and it seems wrong somehow. Once I got passed that, I really like it. It's a new height in quality and it also seems to me to be higher resolution as well. It certainly makes the imperfections much more noticeable. That can be a distraction actually, but I think ultimately it's a good thing. I'm thrilled with it so far. Would love to hear other views of those of you who have the pleasure of hearing this new vinyl.
