oh, and i bought what i thought was a swift first-press of all things must pass, but it wasn't fine enough for my tender ears, so i returned it and swapped it for that Yellow Swans - Psychic Secession album which sounds very sweet indeed. Great packaging too. And not only is the music filled with groovy grooves, but the ACTUAL grooves look very groovy as well.

scott seward (scott seward), Sunday, 7 January 2007 14:09 (eleven years ago) Permalink

all i have to say about this rekkerd: *jean ritchie - none but one* is:

wow, what a record!

scott seward (scott seward), Sunday, 7 January 2007 14:13 (eleven years ago) Permalink

also big wow for this:

sooooooo nice. and it features Jacqui McShee to stunning effect! it came out in 1980, but jeez, you would think it was 1970.

Scott - how are the '4 men with beards' reissues of the Chris Bell/Big Star releases? I hold off 'cause I enjoy the Rykodisc releases from a few years back and I don't want to feel like I've got that bird in hand already ... that said, that labels release of the first three Wire records and Television's Marquee Moon last year are some of my favorite private time, stereo experiences! SOOO much better than the CD releases, sound-wise.

The Reverend Rodney J. Greene (R. J. Greene), Sunday, 7 January 2007 18:37 (eleven years ago) Permalink

So the 4 Men With Beards stuff is good? I've been eyeing those television and big star reissues....and that Public Image Ltd. set too. Do i need another copy of Marquee Moon? Probably. It's better than the recent Rhino reissue, sound-wise?

Tyler W (tylerw), Sunday, 7 January 2007 19:31 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I've got the PiL Metal Box reissue. It's a very good reissue, imo. Worth picking up.

Lush - Gala
Lush - Split
Ghostface Killah - Supreme Clientele 2LP. (I couldn't find an explicit version of this forever, but I got it at last.)

Harpal (harpal), Sunday, 7 January 2007 20:40 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Oh man, the Big Star reissue is SUPERB. plus, the track order is the way it should be and no jarring whole lotta shakin' going on like on the ryko disc. not that extra stuff can't be fine, but they should put that stuff on an extra disc or something. but that's the thing with CDs, isn't it? you can turn an album into something else.

ANYWAY, big star sound-wise, awesome. their transfer of the masters is impeccable. so deep and rich. i highly recommend it. i think this is the 3rd or 4th variation of 3rd that i have owned and hopefully this will be it. just based on this, i might shell out for the metal box reissue. the chris bell sounds great too, but it has been a long time since i have heard the ryko cd of that stuff so it's harder for me to make a comparison between the two.

as far as saying nice things about CDs goes, i have said before and i will say again, that the original twofer CD of the first two Big Star albums - american version, dunno about other countries - is STILL all these years later one of the best sounding CDs that i own. that thing is a wonder! amazing sound. you could use that thing as a reference disc at hi-fi stores. and i rarely can say that about cd reissues of old analog stuff.

If this means anything to ya, from what I understand, the Chris Bell LP is the exact same master as the Rykodisc CD. The original master tapes for this stuff are either lost or no longer exist.

J. Hernandez (Pinball), Tuesday, 9 January 2007 00:18 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Oh, man. The 4 Men with Beards "Third" is fantastic, misses a few nice tracks off the Ryko Cd obv but sounds a LOT better, less of that Ryko "let's just remaster the DRUMS!" sound, really crisp/punchy, amazingly good stoned actually.

I held that Big Star in my hands the other day and anticipated it, I'll probably get it next week along with that Rhino HQ vinyl of Remain In Light.

Recently purchased:

Earth 2 2LP
Stereolab - Refried Ectoplasm 2LP (sounds fantastic, maybe my favorite of theirs)
Beefheart - Lick My Decals LP (nice new 180 gram pressing)
Monkees - 40 Timeless Hits From... anthology 2LP (cool extended "Porpoise Song" and some rare stereo mixes)
Hazel Dickens & Alice Gerrard - Hazel & Alice LP
Szell/Debussy/Ravel LP 'cause I wanted some Debussy & didn't have any

now playing: Rafael Toral "Violence Of Geography" LP

leftover sandbox question: any vinyl junkies here who have used the Last preservative fluid stuff? Yea or nay?

the Big Star is just... wide open and beautiful. I just heard a little horn part in "O Dana" that I never heard before. only on my first listen through. this is also nice 'cause of the track order which I guess is the original '78 version. I have only ever listened to the Ryko CD and it's like a whole new record.

Do you guys know where I can get those plastic baggies to put my LPs in? I've been looking all over

i've been meaning to ask -- with records shelved properly at home, what is the point of those plastic baggies? they annoy me and get in the way, so i don't use them. it's not like i'm ever flipping through things super fast or cramming albums together.

can someone convince me of their worth?

tony conrad schnitzler (sanskrit), Tuesday, 16 January 2007 16:58 (eleven years ago) Permalink

helps avoid ring wear (no direct friction between LP covers.)
helpful when you have a party and some douchebag pukes on your records.

be home by 11 (orion), Tuesday, 16 January 2007 17:00 (eleven years ago) Permalink

also, they're not too annoying if you separate the inner sleeve (with disc) from the jacket, so that the disc slides out without having to remove the bag.

be home by 11 (orion), Tuesday, 16 January 2007 17:03 (eleven years ago) Permalink

yeah i thought someone would say ring wear. i ain't buying it, i see ring wear as coming not from horizontal friction of removing but from the pressure of an angled lean on a shelf. or in most cases, morans stacking stuff horizontally.

tony conrad schnitzler (sanskrit), Tuesday, 16 January 2007 17:22 (eleven years ago) Permalink

keeps them cleaner. dust, dirt, etc, in the air can age covers. if you smoke too, that ain't great for them. but, you know, this is nitpicking if you aren't super-anal. records that have ALWAYS been covered in plastic though will look pretty much brand new for decades.

scott seward (scott seward), Tuesday, 16 January 2007 17:31 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Yeah, I don't use them either.

What about STICKERZ? Are you a sticker-taker-offer? Sometimes they are hard to get off and I end up tearin' the cover.

Picked up the new Ghost 2LP and Nation of Ulysses' 13-Point Program.. Hadn't heard the NOU in years and years, and it didn't sound as great as I remembered. There are some great bits, but overall I'm not really satisfied with my purchase. Maybe it will grow on me. The Ghost 2LP, however, was well worth it.

I bought a scratchy copy of Shangri-Las '65 for ten dollars on eBay last year and I'm glad I did! The thing is so big and boomy sounding that it sounds great even though it's real scratchy. Clean copies of Shangri-Las '65 are expensive.

scott seward (scott seward), Saturday, 27 January 2007 03:32 (ten years ago) Permalink

maybe i meant overstock. the bins of neglected LPs under the "rock" section at my shop, which at one time were duplicate or triplicate copies of regular stock, moved down below to make room.

i acquired five Dead Moon LPs today.
best score in a while. (also got used/cheap copies of the second Avarus LP and the rhBand LP on HP Cycle.)

be home by 11 (orion), Sunday, 28 January 2007 07:12 (ten years ago) Permalink

so i noted some of this on noize board but i should put it here too. yesterday got:

herbie mann - reggae (1974. with albert lee and mick taylor! it is by far the best herbie mann/mick taylor/albert lee reggae album that i own.)

the savage rose - your daily gift (via ebay. original pressing on gregar records. an RCA affiliate.)

the funky kings - s/t (1976. not really funky. produced by paul rothchild. featured jules shear. featured the tune "slow dancing". but who had the hit with slow dancing? it wasn't these guys. was it? olivia newton john? someone.)

cowboy - 5'll getcha ten (superior country-rock on capricorn! really really good. and i have cowboy's 1977 capricorn album, so i know from cowboy. this one is way better. this one is from 1971. just solid in every way.)

irene reid - two of us (nice soulful stuff from 1976 on t.k. subsidiary glades. irene made a pretty well-regarded jazz/standards album in the 60's. this one isn't as well known, but it's very nice.)

the persuasions - we came to play

the farm - spartacus (hah! it was a dollar. i made it thru most of side one. i thought of gareth.)

Victory - s/t (debut by german scorpions-esque cockrockers.)

ray simpson - tiger love (1978. love the song "slinky". ashford & simpson's lawyer/manager died here on the island and i am still coming across stuff from his house at the record store. most of it sealed and a dollar.)

stein ingebrigtsen - stein (70's swedish pop. nice swedish-language cover of rhinestone cowboy.)

der tpk - harmful emotions (new on siltbreeze. 500 copies. awesome stuff. tpk is short for teenage panzer korps.)

ghost - in stormy nights (double vinyl. different track order from the cd and a vinyl only track that is a weird mix of their cromagnon cover. drag city vinyl is always good.)

greezy wheels - radio radials (on london from 1976. goofy/folk/country/fiddle/rock/hippie stuff.)

west, bruce, & laing - why dontcha (needed this! thank you island of plenty!)

gas mask - their first album (great cover. forgettable horn rock a la blood sweat & tears.)

i traded in crap CDs, so i paid about 20 bucks for this stuff. minus the savage rose which i bought on ebay whilst drunk.

scott seward (scott seward), Saturday, 3 February 2007 15:21 (ten years ago) Permalink

oh, also bought a sealed copy of tommy hoehn's *Losing You To Sleep* album on ebay for a buck. From 1978. i dig it. good if you like raspberries/chilton/powerpop stuff. tommy and chilton co-write a song on this album. he was a memphis dude. recorded at ardent. the only other thing i have by him is a 45 on Power Play from 1977 Blow Yourself Up/Love You(All Day Long). On the back of the single one thing sticks out: "With guitars by Andy and Christopher Bell". Andy Hummel? or did chris bell have a brother named andy? i know he had a brother named david. anyway, great single.

and the chilton song on the Hoehn album is great and very chilton-y. plus, he sings back-up and it sounds like he's playing guitar too.

i wrote about terence on that columbus mix-tape thing i wrote and that is on ilm somewhere:

Terence – “An Eye For An Ear” – It’s almost painful for me to put Terence on a tape and not have the song be “Fool Amid The Traffic”, you know what I mean? I mean, you can see my predicament, right? Wait, what do you mean you don’t know what the hell I’m talking about? Fool has it all! The wail of that fuzz lead! If you ate that song you would not only be stronger, faster, and brighter, you would feel from your scalp to your fingertips to your toes a revelatory sense of permanence and rock-hard glow of solidity that could put Mount Everest to shame. But “An Eye For An Ear” need not step to the back for any song. It sings of itself mightily from the first blast of drums, horns (Ah, the horns. My trail of breadcrumbs has transformed itself into a trail of spit shaken from the valve of a horn. Those brass sections are reclaiming their place in the story of the rock and the roll. Their shrill bravado masking the fear that they will be forgotten…), and piercing six-string that perfectly accompany Terence’s blustery conviction that the world…the world is what, Terence?...That the world is…Going. Up. In. Flames.

here's what i wrote about jimmy:

Jimmy Campbell – “In My Room” – I don’t even know if Jimmy’s Half Baked album on Vertigo is rated, let alone under or over or sidewaysdownrated by Mojologically-inclined historians of post-mod squad baroque pop, and I don’t really know if there is anything I can do –singlehandedly- to remedy this situation, nor do I know whether I even feel up to the task. My new motto, when I’m in my cups, is: “Screw it. I’ve got a copy.” Let them eat Badfinger. Or Eric Carmen. Or Al Stewart for all I care. I dig and I dig until I can’t dig anymore. I climb thru windows. I get down on my knees. I go thru the mold and muck of forgotten cellars. I reach out and up. My hands -literally- bleeding to find a piece of that sweet soothing sound that my dreams are not only infested with, soaked in, trembling within, but that my very soul requires to make light of the fear-crazed eyes I have seen in the past. In hospital beds. On the streets. In the mirror. “In My Room” is great. And not to be confused with Fatty Sandbox’s pity party of the same name.

and charley d & milo:

Charley D. And Milo – “Om Sweet Om” – If you mainline The Notorious Byrd Brothers into the vein marked “Precious Cargo” on a thrice-monthly basis cuz dirty feet and sun-kissed domes connect you to your fresh-faced id and remind you that the here is now and possibility is only another word for sofa, then you probably already own the Charley D. And Milo album. It’s next-level growth-chart stuff and reason enough to inhale/exhale your way thru jams traffic and romantic.

I just got a new turntable. A Pro-Ject Debut III, in the champagne finish. Looks nice, sounds nice too. Finally I can play the records I've felt kinda stupid about buying the last four-five months without anything to play them on.

eleven months pass...

OH MAN. so i was at a thrift shop in bangor, maine yesterday and they had 15-packs of 7 inches for 4 bucks. i only bought one cause i didn't have enough cash on me and they don't take card, but when i brought it home and opened it up i realized i got the following:

i fought the law/little annie lou - the bobby fuller four (!!!)
hurdy gurdy man/teen angel - donovan
loves me like a rock/learn how to fall - paul simon
superman/a man i loved - barbra streisand (ok this one kinda sucks)
for what it's worth/do i have to come right out and say it - buffalo springfield
my sweet lord/isn't it a pity - george harrison
there's a kind of hush/no milk today - herman's hermits
summer in the city/butchie's tune - the lovin' spoonful
small town woman/miss america - mark lindsay
hooray for hazel/need your love - tommy roe
la, la, la/time - bobby sherman
autumn rhapsody/cry - ronnie dove
walk away renee/i haven't got the nerve - the left banke
the night they drove old dixie down/when time is stolen - joan baez
draggin' the line/bits and pieces - tommy james and the shondells (!!!)

however, when i went back today to buy the rest of them SOMEONE HAD ALREADY GOTTEN THEM. so mad! kicking myself for not making my friend drive me to the ATM to get more cash! 4 bucks!
