Cher

Dark Lady

1974

Australia

 

Nice NM Copy - with a few crackles between tracks and here and there but hey, it is 46 years old.

Interestingly this has never been released on CD in it's entirety.

 

Great versions of "Rescue Me"  & "What'll I do"...... big band sounding numbers.

Sounds like a CD. 

 

Pretty decent album, "The Fear" is the standout. Has a real "William Orbit" sound to it (One of my favourite producers). Ever listened to the lyrics? So true of the times.

 

Life's about film stars and less about mothers
It's all about fast cars and cussing each other
But it doesn't matter 'cause I'm packing plastic
And that's what makes my life so f*ckin' fantastic
And I am a weapon of massive consumption
And it's not my fault, it's how I'm programmed to function

This is a superb pressing. Get a copy of the "HDCD" version of this, it sounds absolutely fantastic. Whoever did the rework on this did it with an ear of an audiophile.

Say no more. Politically motivated music always bugs me though.

I can’t believe this album is 20 years old. I fell in love with it instantly and have been a fan of Coldplay since

My eldest kids put me onto this band a few years back.  Just had the chance to pick it up on vinyl. Enjoyable record with the great song, “Pumped up Kicks”.

Impressive, as usual. How is that Frank’s album SQ?

cheers mate.  It's a solid recording and for the price, very good value for the SQ it has.  It's not setting any new standards, but comes with poly lined inners and very quiet noise floor.  I enjoyed it.

Dolly, Linda & Emmylou

Trio

1987

Australia

NM

 

I am not a country fan but do like Dolly (she is hard not to like) and this is a lovely album - I added it to my order of Cher I got yesterday to make the shipping more worth it, and glad I did - it is fun and I thought the inner sleeve with cut out dollies was rather cute too.

country music is a broad church😀

Have a look at this doco on the making of that record

Does go for an hour and has a lot of background information about the 3 women

I watched it on Monday night

Give you a better idea of what country music is

Dolly Parton is a much more complicated person than she appears 

She was born into the heartland of where American country music comes from

And she can play a banjo
