Awesome. I'll tell you what, the acoustic side of Lies makes a great case for how good vinyl can sound. 

Agreed, it was a treat to listen to it! Got it for 30 bucks which was way less than I ever expected to be paying for a copy of Lies

My deck was sitting in storage for over 10 years. So now that I have somewhere to set it up and run properly, I pulled it out and took it to a local audio tech for some lovin' given it is from th

I caved and caved hard:  

Finally got around to picking up the latest from Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats today.  Also grabbed the new Tedeschi Trucks that came out today.

My summer of blue vinyls has concluded....the last one just arrived.  Some Japanese band I've never heard of; I just bought it cause I love Hisashi Eguchi.  The fact that the vinyl is blue is just a bonus.

Once again, wanna shout out to Dean for making this possible by snagging that blue B&S for me!!

got in Live at Goose Lake today. This is the long lost final show of the original Stooges lineup.

Very nice. I live not too far from the camp grounds at Goose Lake. The outer shell of the stage is still out in the field. I have friends who have a camp site adjacent to the field. I always find myself day dreaming about the amazing concerts that were held on those grounds.

Just picked up Magnetic by Gaudi on vinyl. £16 off his bandcamp page and includes download. Brilliant stuff. Pretty bizarre. One track has Bucket on it.

Also picked up signed limited edition clear vinyl of Max Richter's new album Voices. Melancholic and emotional.

How do I post images on here?

Use an image hosting site like imgur and then insert it in the url with the box at the bottom there.

 

Anyway.....it's almost time.....August 29th...."Record Store Day."

 

Is it still on?  Are there online options?   What's my best way to get that damn SLINT record I want so damn much??

Well, the day is almost upon us.

I haven't found any sites that are selling online.  After all, the whole point of RSD is to drive in foot traffic to the stores.

 

If anyone has any links to stores that are definitely gonna sell that Slint record, please let me know!   Otherwise I gotta pester poor Russ about it...

I’m getting my first turn table very soon. I’m thinking about getting the U Turn Orbit plus. Anyone have experience with it? It’s belt driven, and I’ve been told belts can be a hassle at times. I’m in love with the aesthetic of it and it seems to be really high quality for the price.

I don't own one, but I've heard VERY good things about them. A friend has the step down from the model and they're happy with it. 

Personally, I like the acrylic platter you get as an upgrade with the plus. I'm a big, big fan of acrylic platters for more than a few reasons, so that's a great upgrade. 

Belt driven decks can be a hassle in some ways, but I do like them better overall than direct drive decks.

I won't be going to my local store until the early afternoon on Saturday, but if no one else helps you out by then, let me know. I'll be happy to take a look and see if they still have it.

Listening to Jeff Becks Back to Back. This might be the most powerful rock n roll mix Ive heard. Nothing like the CD. Thundering bass, hard hitting drums, clav, synth and Becks guitar pyrotechnics... my speaker moves air with this one!! :headbang:

Yeah I checked Amoeba.   Sounds like it's gonna be a lottery type thing, like getting tickets at ticketmaster used to be in the 90s.   If you aren't one of the first callers in the first minute....you're shit out of luck.

it's not a lottery. They are just posting them online at 10am pst. First come, first served.

Love, love, LOVE that feeling of the speakers moving the air. Nothing quite like it.

Well....Amoeba is completely fucked.

But it looks like I got lucky....for a minute there was a guy selling on discogs for retail price so I clicked order as fast as I could.

Looks like I can finally unclench my asshole.

 

All this for a fucking stupid record with two songs on it.  

Why do we do this to ourselves, as collectors??  Ugh.

Slid by my local shop and grabbed The Black Crowes - Lions. It's been on my holy grail list forever, so I'm beyond stoked to finally own it.

Very cool Russ....."Midnight on the Inside Out" right into "Lickin" is such a killer one-two punch to open that album....love it.   And of course, one of their catchiest singles, "Soul Singin'" is on that album too.

The pink wax looks awesome too!

I also got the SLINT record I wanted from a decent seller on discogs, and now all that's left are marked up copies by flippers.    Bastards.   But it was worth frantically clicking "refresh" cause I got the record I wanted, too.
