Now I want the real thing! Pink Floyd "Animals" 2016 remaster, Dutch pressing.  

Cheers Hector.  I have it and a great album it is.           Thanks to @evil c   Donald Fagen - The Nightfly    Mofi one step release.   High standard

I'm just comfortably numb!

Iron Maiden: Killers ((Original Australian Pressing 1981)

 

So, I've been trying something to remedy the outgassing damage done to this original pressing... trust me, you'd probably be horrified but, it's playable with only a moderate amount of hiss in the really quiet spots (not many of them thankfully) & between tracks... I'd say it's now tolerable... just

Nice, it’s one of my favourite albums, and unfortunately my original is the only album I have accidentally damaged, dropped it while cleaning. I’ve replaced it with a reissue, I’d love to see a remaster.

 I have that and its very good.  I prefer my original US pressing.  That has balls. YMMV

  I should probably get off my arrse and sell it.

Last night I hit the sweet spot again for some late night listening.

 

Started with Simple Minds "New Gold Dream 81, 82, 83, 84" Oz 1st pressing. First time I've sat dead centre and listened to this on my current system and all I can say is wow! Not sure why I ever doubted Australian pressings because some are absolutely outstanding.....this included. The band were really honing their sound on this release and what a blast it is!

 

R-79838-1437684535-2464.jpeg.jpg

 

Followed up with Simple Minds "Once Upon A Time" Canadian 1st pressing.....this was equally impressive. Mel Gaynor's drumming definitely shines here but the whole band is on fire......and it's a really great mix and pressing.

 

R-181737-1173309386.jpeg.jpg

 

Finished with Simple Minds earlier work "Sons And Fascination" Oz 1st pressing. Slightly chaotic at times but still a worthy inclusion in the Simple Minds sonic arsenal. There are some great moments on this and again, SQ and pressing are impressive.

It was indeed a rewarding listening experience.👌:heart:

Bonnie Raitt - Slipstream (2012).  180gm 2-disc gatefold.  Good value at the regular $40 and a bargain for a mere lobster which i picked it up for during the week.  On this second listen i'm really enjoying her bluesy country rock delivery with a touch of gravel including covers of Gerry Rafferty and Bob D.  Album review linky here https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-album-reviews/slipstream-199476/

 

Btw the store (Tokyo Underground) on Hay Street in the Perth CBD is running out its vinyl at 50% which is by now pretty well picked over but they still had 4 more copies of this album so if any local peeps were interested give 'em a call.

 

Cheers

Ideal record for a lazy Sunday afternoon. Nothing notable in the songs themselves but beautifully sung and truly excellent pressing

I would be interested in your thoughts of the quality of the recording engineer or the pressing!? (myself "very ordinary, guessing recording quality!)

@Guzzista i wasn't sitting down to critically listen at the time, but i recall thinking that the pressing is OK but recording SQ perhaps 'middle of the road'.  Personally i find Josh T's voice or delivery gets a bit too plaintiff/strident on a couple of tracks but overall i enjoy the album.

I brought the Black Vinyl copy and found it noisy and not so great so returned it, then looked for the Orange copy (which you can still pick up from time to time) and found it way better. Also has the extra tracks on it.

I picked my copy up from Amazon US last year. 👍

      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!
