Excited to pick up the new Raconteurs album this friday. I already have the vault version coming but they are doing an in store performance at Amoeba so I will be buying it there as well to get tickets. 

Got the Vault version before I left town on Friday. Just got back this morning and haven't had a chance to spin it yet. I'm hoping to get to it tomorrow.

Added Aerosmith-Rocks, AC/DC-‘74 Jailbreak, and Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown-Truth and Lies to the collection this weekend, all sound amazing, especially Rocks and Truth and Lies, which is second to Feral Roots as my favorite album of this year

Here’s my updated collection.

Have any of you ever had trouble getting a record to go onto the player? My copy of Flash Gordon wouldn’t go on the player and when I forced it, it sounded warped. I had to take a pen and kind of widen the hole in the record for it to play right.

Was able to snag a copy of the limited release-weekend only vinyl LP of the OUATIH soundtrack. It was only available at Amoeba Hollywood and the new bev (quentins theater)

Not a lot going on here lately. I'm looking forward to the latest Prince re-issues on 09/13.

I'm also waiting for Fluance to get the RT85 back in stock. I believe I've settled on that for my next turntable.

I finally went and did it. I ordered a new turntable for the first time in 10 years, here's what I ordered:

I've been waiting MONTHS for it to be back in stock. When it arrives, I'm going to install my Ortofon 2M Bronze and sell the 2M Blue that comes installed on it.

very cool!

I might upgrade mine in the next couple years or so, but very happy with it for now.

I would love to get one of these some day though as a additional table..

(mainly just because it's the model Alex has in A Clockwork Orange)

My end goal is to get a Clearaudio Concept someday but that's a pipe dream at this point lol. 

I'm very, VERY excited about this upgrade though.

My RT85 was just delievered. Hell yeah!

look forward to seeing you new setup!

 

Does everyone here either know of or use the vinyl collective boards?

https://boards.vinylcollective.com/forum/4-vinyl-collective-message-board/

There can be a lot of pretentious douchebaggery there but it is a good place to keep up with releases coming up and what not for anyone who is an avid collector.

 

Anyhow in terms of things i've picked up lately, not too much but a few...

-Lille Mae - Other Girls (indie exclusive colored)

-Almost Famous OST (promo only)

-The Melvins - Pinkus Abortion Technician

-The MC5 - Shakin' Street (Which is a comp of demos, live tracks, etc)

-The Stooges - 1970 b/w Not Right single (it's a 7" that Rhino put out back in 2005)

Update-

The RT85 lives up to the hype. The soundstage is H U G E.

I've only had a couple hours to listen so far, but I've got a big night coming up tonight where a lot of friends are coming over with a lot of special pressings. So we're really going to put it to the test.

Bought Olivia Jean's sophomore solo effort and I'm really bummed out by it. It's not anywhere near as good as her first record IMO.

Still need to buy a European version of the CD vinyl. The one I bought turned out to be US and has clipping all over it. I heard the EU one is better.

Yeah I could barely get through the single they released.

It was like a really shitty attempt at being April march.

I've always heard that and I just never get around to buying an EU pressing. I should just buckle down, get on Discogs and order a copy.

I didn't hate the first single, but didn't love it. 

I loved almost every tracks on her first album, so I was looking forward to the second one. 

It's just a mess though. The entire album is filled with half baked songs.

 Got this as a belated birthday gift today!

 

WOW. NICE! I own The White Album from that collection but it's the only one I've heard. I really dig it a lot though. It's my go-to stereo pressing of that album.
