  1. I must get me some more ELO on vinyl.....I want more (but I'm not playing a CD!), so a bit of neo- psychedelica should do the trick.πŸ˜„ Temples "Sun Structures" 2014........Pity this US 'Fat Possum Records' pressing is pretty average, but would Euro release be any better? Possibly, as the Euro was a double and the album is well over 50 minutes....US released single album squeezed. Both releases pressed by GZMedia I have just found out......ahh, there's the problem!πŸ™„ That said, the music is excellent.πŸ‘
  2. This again....I forgot how much I like this album....bit of a soundtrack to my late teens. It's a blast (and I am quite impressed with this recent German pressing.....tonally gutsy but still quite refined).😎
  3. Spinning this after it's arrival. Brand new ELO "A New World Record" 2016 reissue, German pressing and bought via the steroenet classifieds. Haven't heard this album in full for years.....really enjoying it and this pressing sounds good.πŸ‘ https://www.discogs.com/Electric-Light-Orchestra-A-New-World-Record/release/8572541
  4. Thijs Van Leer (Focus) "O My Love" OZ 1st pressing. There has only been four issues of this album ever.....all from the release year (1975). An LP and cassette from origin country the Netherlands, an LP from Brazil and an LP from Australia.
  5. The Beatles "Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band" 1969 Qz repress (non-gatefold cover).....sounds great. https://www.discogs.com/The-Beatles-Sgt-Peppers-Lonely-Hearts-Club-Band/release/3038771
  6. Focus "Hamburger Concerto" Dutch 1st pressing.
  7. Dixie Dregs "Night Of The Living Dregs" US 1st pressing.
  8. DIY US LP cleaning units become all the more relevant and sensible when ridiculously overpriced units like this appear on the market. Based on the average price of an LP ($30.....too low?), it costs the equivalent of almost 152 LP's (or over 100 bottles of RV) at $4550....WTF?! https://www.stereo.net.au/news/make-your-records-like-new-again-with-the-degritter Oh well, it looks real nice.πŸ™„πŸ˜„
  9. Dixie Dregs "Dregs Of The Earth" US 1st pressing.
  10. AC/DC "For Those About To Rock" US 1st pressing.
  11. Don Bartley is Australia's Bob Ludwig or Bernie Grundman. Legend. He mastered the extremely rare and much vaunted 'Best Sounding Sgt Peppers LP ever' limited reissue for a sound show in Sydney back in the 80's I think it was. This is it: https://www.discogs.com/The-Beatles-Sgt-Peppers-Lonely-Hearts-Club-Band/release/10912341 Check the album notes......it was EMI's first attempt at half speed mastering. Sounds like they nailed it!πŸ‘Œ It was actually 1983 and copies of these sold at the show for $25.00 !!!!!!😡 They would go for $100's these days but forget it now, no one is selling. There's been plenty of recent 'Mastercut' chat over on the Japanese Pressings thread, including that quote. It's fascinating stuff! πŸ‘
  12. Great news Ant. Let us know what you think of the Vincent phono......after at least 2 hours on, of course!πŸ˜„ Giving this another spin.....Grinspoon "Chemical Hearts" Greatest Hits 2019 Vinyl only release. This is my second listen to this and while it's great to have some Grinners on vinyl, I have to admit, it's not a top line production as far as SQ goes....at best, adequate.πŸ˜‘
  13. Kansas "The Prelude Implicit" 2016 German pressing.
  14. I so wanted a Nackamichi cassette deck when I was a teenager but I ended up getting a Luxman.....no qualms there but my love for this brand remains undiminished. For those wanting a return to the nostalgia of cassettes, this unit will deliver! Here's a review conclusion from HIFI Classic. com: "The Nakamichi LX-5 is a superb cassette deck, remarkable in performance, simple in operation and styling. Dubbing from various sources-LPs, FM, and even master tapes-produced impeccable copies, and even when using FM hiss as a test signal it was virtually impossible to distinguish between the original and the taped copy (using metal tape). Apart from the demands of a laboratory recorder (variable equalization, bias-monitoring jacks, etc.), this is perhaps the finest deck I have yet tested. " http://www.hifi-classic.net/review/nakamichi-lx-5-312.html There's also this where it is compared with the Nakamichi Dragon and Sony EL-7 high end decks (favourablyπŸ‘Œ) : GLWTS. πŸ‘
  15. That's a Kenwood KD750 with Trio badging and if I had a spare $600, I'd snap it up.....a fine TT......GLWTS πŸ‘
