I did a drive by at the Crack House
$20.10 Total

1. Herbie Hancock ~ Man-Child      White Label Promo
2. Jan Ackerman & Thijs Van leer ~ Focus
3. Al Di Meola ~ Scenario
3. Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway
4. The Dream Academy
5. Chet Atkins ~ Class Guitar
6. Chet Atkins ~ More Of That Guitar Country
7. Jerry Goodman ~ It's Alive
8. Tracy Chapman ~ Crossroads
9. Bruford ~ Feels Good To Me
10. Ian Matthews ~ Stealin' Home
11. Percy Faith ~ Black Magic Woman         Quad LP
12. Pat Methany/Ornette Coleman ~ Song X
13. Jan Garbarek/Keith Jarrett ~ Belonging
14. Herrbie Hancock/Freddie Hubbard/Stanley Turrentine ~ In Concert Vol. Two


How is the pressing on the Percy Faith? The JVC Supervinyl that MoFi used in its early LPs (and all of the UHQRs) was originally developed to meet the needs of CD-4 quad records. So some of the quad records out there were pressed on some really first rate quiet vinyl. (I know the story of the supervinyl, but have never been able to find a comprehensive list of what record companies used it in their quad releases.

The vinyl is very quiet. The album looks like it hadn't been handled very much. I found at times some parts of the recording made me cringe a little. Even lowering the volume didn't help much. Then again my hearing as always comes into question   :(..............Bill

Took my some for our annual prigrimage to PREX last Thurs.   :drool:

Between the two of us we walked out with 39 LPs and 24 CDs.  8)

Unfortunately, this was not the Crack House so I had to part with a wee bit more than $20.10.   :(

But we did come away withsome really nice stuff. I'll post details over on the "Waht are Oyu Listening to now thread as I get a chance to listen to them.

Remember, it's all about the music........

I only have one question. How on earth do youwalk into PREX and walk out with only 1 record under your arm.   :shock: (I consider myself lucky if I can get out of therre with only one shopping bag.   :roll: )

BTW, Nice haul on the rest of the stuff.

You should just get a Home Equity line of credit wired right over to them so you can just tap into it whenever you come across a big find.  :lol:

Tangerine Dream, especially the Exit album provided the soundtrack to a whole lot of my college studying.

If you look at back cover and turn it 90 degrees counter-clockwise (the opening will be at the bottom, be careful not to let the record fall out) the photo is of the entrance to the building that my wife worked in at her first job out of college.  where the face is at the end of the hallway is actually a big number 32. Right before the number you turned left to of into the building .
