    ERIC DOLPHY - Out To Lunch Music Matters 33 1/3 LP I was stunned when I first heard this many many years ago. One of favourites pieces of jazz, full stop.

    Of course I had to play Free Jazz today, 2x 45 rpm ORG, Bernie Grundman mastered, Pallas. One take, quartet in each channel, Pollock art work. Great stuff. But really does seem rather tame today cf modern free jazz artists!

    I'm glad to see you've kept an open mind to trying this again at a later stage...or not. This album really is a classic and one of the first that initially brought me to the whole exciting world of free jazz. If you didn't like this one then stay well clear of Coltrane's Ascension.

    And they deduct the 20% VAT!
  7. "One important caveat: we used rock and pop as our rubric, so a drummer's work needed to directly impact that world (as we define it, of course) to make the list. This meant leaving out dozens of essential jazz artists such as Max Roach and Roy Haynes, whose innovations inspired many of the players you'll read about below. That list is its own monument we hope to build someday soon"
  8. I have the Goldring 1006/12/42 (interchageable stylii) and an AT OC-9II Chalk and cheese IMHO!
  9. That's a Goldring 10xx Moving Magnet cartridge

    Vampire Weekend should be out soon. I can't wait either! 25 March 2107 "Ezra Koenig offers an update on new Vampire Weekend album It's still tentatively titled Mitsubishi Macchiato and "a lil more springtime" than the last LP "every day I get comments & questions about the next Vampire Weekend album. obviously, we gotta take our time & get it right but the fans deserve some information. I know it feels like it’s been an eternity since the last one but time…is strange. this is what’s been happening: 2013- MVOTC release 2014 – still touring/promoting 2015 – mental health year (putting 3 albums in stores was taxing), worked on a vibey project you’ll hear abt soon 2016- writing LP4, long days in the library researching w/ the grad students 2017 – recording, trying to finish ASAP what else can I tell you without playing myself? hmm, it’s a lil more springtime than the last one. guitar’s not dead. there are songs (currently) called “Conversation” & “Flower Moon.” Flower Moon is hard to finish but I think it belongs on the album. working title is still Mitsubishi Macchiato cuz it is a helpful concept. I should probably stop there cuz all of that information is subject to change & I can't tell you the really good stuff anyway 🍍🔥🍍🎶🌑🌒🌓🌔🌕🌖🌗🌘🌚"
  11. I've found that by raising the holder as high as it goes, and removing the black spacers from the gasmate motor, makes it much easier to insert the spindle.

    I didn't bother to.
