John Prine

The Missing Years

2017 Repress 


I wasn’t sure about this 1991 album on vinyl as the first ever vinyl version was released in 2013, pressed by URP. However, happy to now have it as it sounds clean, clear and dynamic unlike most URP pressings, if not just a tad bright/digital like. Surprised there’s not even one tick to be heard!

 

It won the 1992 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album.

Stevie Wonder - Songs in the Key of Life (1976)

Stevie Wonder's run of albums in the early-mid 70s was extraordinary. This is often picked as the best of that run, but I play it and connect with it less than others. I'm not sure why. Maybe because I came to it later, maybe because it's sprawling length (2xLP + 7") makes it less accessible, maybe because it has less hard funk than earlier albums. Still a great record from an outstanding talent.

Marie 'Queenie' Lyons - Soul Fever (1970)

Sticking with 70s soul for now, from a lesser known soul diva whom I first encountered via the highly recommended 'I'm A Good Woman' compilation series.

GANGgajang - self titled

 

I have a CD compilation that I picked up in a bargain bin back in the nineties but was never really happy with the sound, it was overly compressed to the point that it sounds like an FM broadcast.

 

This chunk of vinyl though, much better (Mercury pressing rather than the original Truetone).  The overly familiar "Sounds of then" is as fresh as a daisy.

It's funny to think the band originated from the band put together to do "Sweet and sour", or that quintessential slice of aussie life described in "Sounds of then" is something most of us would have  never experienced (canefields, cattle) although I think a lot of people are still financing beds.

 

The $15 paid at David Jones by the original purchaser - $45 dollars today.

Doc Powell - The Doctor

 

Label: Signoricci Vinyl

 

Stunning SQ - full analogue chain audiophile pressing of Doc Powell - an extremely talented jazz guitarist.

 

Recorded in Italy and pressed in Japan from what I can see.

 

I am thoroughly enjoying this.

Australian Crawl - Phalanx

 

Contains a dreadful cover of "Louie Louie" where James Reyne finds it necessary to explain the lyrics to the audience (I mean why?  I think I would have chucked my can at the stage).

 

I remember it stinking up bargain bins at record shops for years and now it stinks up charity shop vinyl crates but it's not bad.  There is a tougher edge to the sound that never came across on the other records.

 

edit:  Boys Light Up and Reckless really benefit from that raw sound.  As a chunky "best of" it works well.

I married a girl & her family worked and lived around cane fields and cattle ( have many B&W photos of manual cane cutting) 

My family also were in agriculture overseas before we came to Australia 

 

I have experienced most of what’s in those lyrics mentioned

Here are the lyrics of 

Ganggajang - Sounds Of Then 

 

I think I hear the sounds of then,
And people talking,
The scenes recalled, by minute movement,
And songs they fall, from the backing tape.
That certain texture, that certain smell,

To lie in sweat, on familiar sheets,
In brick veneer on financed beds.
In a room, of silent hardiflex
That certain texture, that certain smell,
Brings home the heavy days,
Brings home the the night time swell,

 

Out on the patio we'd sit,
And the humidity we'd breathe,
We'd watch the lightning crack over canefields
Laugh and think, this is Australia.

The block is awkward - it faces west,
With long diagonals, sloping too.
And in the distance, through the heat haze,
In convoys of silence the cattle graze.


That certain texture, that certain beat,
Brings forth the night time heat.

Out on the patio we'd sit,
And the humidity we'd breathe,
We'd watch the lightning crack over canefields
Laugh and think that this is Australia.

 

To lie in sweat, on familiar sheets,
In brick veneer on financed beds.
In a room of silent hardiflex
That certain texture, that certain smell,
Brings forth the heavy days,
Brings forth the night time sweat
Out on the patio we'd sit,
And the humidity we'd breathe,
We'd watch the lightning crack over canefields
Laugh and think, this is Australia.
This is Australia etc.

Mental as Anything - Espresso Bongo

 

"Come Around" probably the standout track on this but it's fun the whole way through and unlike some of the later records doesn't have a quirky cover version on it, all original songs from the band members.  It's better for it too. 

 

Strangely the CD re-issue from the 1980s is hideously expensive, the LP can be had for little or no money.

INXS - Kick.

 

Sounding great.

 

IMG_2496.thumb.JPG.0ac6b5a2b0faafb86c2724ed3cc34b6d.JPG

 

one of my fav albums.  If you can find the 2017 30th anniversary Miles Showell Abby Rd half speed mastered 45rpm version of Kick, grab it.    It is better in every way possible to the mofi - you will be amazed.  bigger, wider, deeper, clearer, more detail, less brightness, clearer more lifelike  vocals.   

The mofi cover is better thou.

Will keep on the lookout.  Thanks :).  I always wonder if I should put up new posts on which pressing of an album to buy before spending $100+ but that would get a bit tiresome I suppose.

Berlin - Dancing In Berlin (dance remix)

 

Giorgio Morodor produced 12", bass heavy and po faced, never forget dancing was serious business back in the 1980s.  Sounds a lot like the various bits and pieces done for "Top Gun" and Berlin of course ended up on that sound track.

 

I mean, look at those dudes faces, they are taking no prisoners!

      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.
