Mozart Concertos 21 and 23: Rubinstein/Wallenstein/RCA Victor Symphony



RCA Living Stereo LP

Unfortunately this one has a skip near the end of side two. I could not find anything visually that would cause it, so I am going to have to give it a good steam bath and see if that works loose some kind of grunge deep in a groove that I am not seeing with the naked eye.

Damn, and  I paid a whole 65 cents for this one.

Don Fagen  "The Nightfly". Maybe the best recorded pop/jazz lp in my collection... and good music as well.

“But I don't want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked. “Oh, you can't help that,” said the Cat: “we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.”
Gear: a bunch of second hand stuff and kits.

I'm always in awe of the virtuoso Joe Pass, but I just don't especially like his style.

Good idea.

I'll see your Warner Bro and Raise you a Mofi (but unfortunately not the one step 45  :()




But to be honest with you, I go to the MoFi shelf out of habit, but I bought this album the first day it was released and thus my stock pressing was from very early in the run and sounds damn good.

All that aside, this album does represent Fagen at his best.  :thumb:

Rickie Lee Jones:



Warner Bros. 10" EP Pressed on Quiex II Vinyl

Just came in the mail today.

I ordered it after hearing them play it in the VAC/ Von Schweikert room at CAF. It does not sound as good at home as I remember it from the show. But then again my entire system cost less that the stands that sat under the amps in that room.  #-o

Billy Joel: The Stranger



MoFi 200g 2 LP 45 RPM Set

I don't hear the disjointedness that bothered me when I played this album using the Blue Point Special.

The Benz is not fully broken in yet, but I am starting to hear good things.  :D
