Went on a road trip this week for work, did manage to find a bit of second hand vinyl in odd places but also came home to some that I ordered from discogs.  here's a sample of this mornings listening.

David Bowie - Let's Dance.  Despite the ubiquity of the songs from side 1 I still love it after all these years.  Originally owned the cassette now have a lovely original Aus pressing and it is fantastic.

Gerry Rafferty - Night Owl.  In perfect nick and sounding great.

Mental as Anything - Cats and Dogs.  My favourite of their albums and the cover is brilliant.

Fleetwood Mac - Rumours.  Might the the 3rd of 4th pressing and the cover is a bit stained.

Donnie Iris - Back on the Streets.  Ah! Leah!

Dave Brubeck Quartet - Time Out.  Just fantastic and in lovely condition.

Graham Bonnet:  His cover of "It's all over now baby blue" is rockin!  Rest of the album is a bit...terrible but no matter.

 

Still to play a pile of other stuff (Al Stewart, the Seekers) but not a lot of work getting done this morning!

Got snaked for a copy of this in a record store in Newcastle over the weekend.  Still kicking myself because I need it to round out the first three albums properly 😆

I've only got the one copy of Semantics, but it is pristine and sounds great too. I have a couple of copies of Sirocco and single copies of The Boys Light Up and Sons Of Beaches, which all came before Semantics.

 

Are you a Newcastle lad Dave?

 

Cheers,

No - my daughter is down there at Uni - went through on my way home from being in southern NSW, she was jonesing to go out to "The Mosh Pit" which is out in Cardiff.  Spent far too much money so missing out on the record was probably a good thing.  Every copy of Sirocco I come across seems to be completely munted including my own, I'm not sure why.  They all look like they were the mainstay of several parties.  The others can be found in good nick though which is great.

I'm an old Lake Macquarie, Boolaroo lad [I know, no great claim to famexD] so I know Cardiff really well. I'm not fmiliar with the Mosh Pit, but it has been decades since I spent any time there.

 

I'll spin both copies of Sirocco up this arvo and see how they sound, but I'm pretty sure they'll be A1. If they're both good, I can send you a copy.............don't know what I'm going to do with two anyway, it's been so long since I played them.

 

Where are you living now?

 

Cheers,

 

Keith

Al Stewart - 24 PCarrots

 

It's a bit rockier than I expected - still those pleasingly twee vocals and whatnot, the subject matter isn't as much of the strange historical stuff on Time Passages/Year of the Cat but it's unmistakeably him.  Not bad!

 

Pity about the state of the cover - grabbed this and "Russians and Americans" from a charity shop, thankfully the records are in good nick.

Yeah, I lived just down from TC Friths in 1st Street for a a chunk of time and also in 5th Street on the bottom side and in 7th up on Lake View. I didn't play much golf as a youngster, but did play a lot of tennis and took first lessons in the early '60s just up the road from you in Glendale. It was from  Glendale that I use to take the short cut through the golf course on the horse to get home to Boolaroo..........small world really.

 

Cheers,

Was tennis lessons at a private home in Poyner avenue that had a clay court 

Thats also the street the Red Toronto busses used for the BHP run 

I went there for tennis because I knew the family 

 

Or did you have tennis lessons on the tar court next to the primary school on Lake Rd

I was around 10 or 11 years old, so it would have been 1963 or 1964 and it was a clay [antbed] backyard court on Main Road, definitely not bitumen. I hadn't been taught by a coach at that point, but had been playing socially with my folks for a couple of years, so I only spent a short time with lessons in Glendale. The coach was a school teacher by the name of Rodney Brent and I ended up being handed over to his dad, Frank, for coaching at another backyard court in Adamstown, which was the then Solgleam Club.

 

Cheers,

Paul Kelly and The Coloured Girls - Gossip. 2LP 33rpm on Mushroom label. I'm a Paul Kelly tragic and Dale and I would catch him live at the Espy and other venues around Melbourne every chance we got. I love his music and he was great live, on his own or with Uncle Bill [Gerry Hale] or the Stormwater Boys back in those days. Great to listen again to some of his older songs on vinyl from the mid '80s.:thumb:

      2014 vinyl release by Jack White 
       
      This "Ultra LP" release features several special features:

      · Tracks A6 and B7 are locked grooves featuring elements from their respective previous tracks. "High Ball Stepper" doesn't end with a faded-out distortion as in the digital versions, it is locked instead.
      · Tracks A7 and B8 are hidden tracks pressed on their sides' labels, and play at 78 RPM and 45 RPM respectively, thus making the LP a three speed record.
      · Side A's groove is inverted and plays from the inside out.
      · "Just One Drink" consists of two different intros, each in its own groove, with both connecting at the body of the song. BA1 is acoustic, BB1 is electric.
      · Side B has a matte finish, giving the appearance of an un-played 78 RPM record.
      · Vinyl is pressed in flat-edged format.
      · Dead wax area on Side A contains a hand-etched hologram by Tristan Duke of Infinity Light Science, the first of its kind on a vinyl record.
      · Tracks B3 and B4 are swapped in comparison to the digital editions, and B2 features a slightly longer intro.
      · The vinyl was mastered entirely from analog sources with no additional compression used.

      So after finding myself in a music store with that old familiar joy of looking through vinyl albums I wanted to add a turntable to my setup. The Project X1  is what I was thinking I would dip my toe in with. 
       
      I have boxes of vinyl of classical from the old family home, but they are in average to poor condition. (but recordings I cannot get any more) So my question is:
       
      If I am playing both new and old vinyl records,  am I going to destroy the needle? What do others here do about their original and mint collection without killing a $300 needle?
       
      Thanks!
