Currently Purchasing

Recommended Posts

Hi

It has been pointed out that most of my contributions to the Currently Spinning thread seem to be what I have bought lately rather than what I have listened to. On The Vinyl Engine they have a thread called "Did you buy any records today?". This might exclude the digiphiles amongst us so I though why not start a similar thread here with a title fitting with this site. So, here is it - Currently Purchasing.

So, I'll start off with my purchases from yesterday.

From Licorice Pie:

Sonny Boy Williamson: One Way Out. Getting into the blues of late so I thought I'd Pick up some Sonny Boy.

Project Stereo Test Record - will be setting up the new TT shortly so I thought another test record wouldn't do any harm.

From Warren's Record Paradise - Warren is not looking well which is a pity.

Mike Oldfield: Five Miles Out

Organ Recital: Simon Jansen on the organ at St Martin's Church, Bolsward Holland. Tracks include: Bach's Toccata and Fugue, Bach choral preludes, Rheinberger, Bossi and Karl-Elert. Mainly bought for Toccata and Fugue although I have played that track and would like a version with a bit more attack. That said, organs hold their notes so I suppose this is a balance. Anyone have a good suggestion for a version of Toccata and Fugue?

My idea is to restrict this to music as component purchases should be in other sections, but we'll see how it all pans out.

I'm trying to purchase

David Gilmour "Live in Gdansk"

I think that I've got a copy of the 5 disc set thanks to the phone and a credit card, although I don't have it just yet.

I'm also trying to purchase the 4 LP set of the same name, this is proving a little harder to get.

I've also just purchased Floyd's "A Momentary Lapse of Reason", on vinyl. I've had the CD for 20 years now, but vinyl is what I love

Gday Snow, the whole Gilmour/Gdansk thing gets a little confusing. I just spent 20 mins the other day going through the different options at JB and ended up with their most expensive offering, the 4 disc set which has 2 CDs and 2 DVDs.

I have also had emails from Elusive Disc (I think) promoting the 5 LP set (vinyl only - no video).

So if you have ordered anything it sounds like it must be the 5 LPs. JB also offered a 2 disc and a 3 disc set which all looked identical apart from the fine print.

Cheers,

Jake

That goodness it's back.

Pink Floyd "The Wall" I've already got this on CD & vinyl, but my LP is just about worn out.

Pink Floyd "Atom Heart Mother" I've never heard this one.

David Gilmour "About Face" I've never heard this one either.

I've got my "Live in Gdansk" 5 disc pack, I love it, still hunting for the LP pack.

No worries mondie,

It's an eBay job. I'll let you know when I get it and have given it a couple of spins

Since Richard past away I've been playing and buying alot of Floyd & David Gilmour. I can nearly watch "wearing the inside out" from "Remeber that night" disc 2 without getting a tear in my eye. I had this problem before he passed away, his passing was a shock to me.

cheers

Since the site's been down I've been shopping:

200px-AnimalsTwainShallMeet.jpg

The Animals: The Twain Shall Meet

Johnny_Winter_-_Second_Winter.jpg

Is it a single album, is it a double album? It's in between: Johnny Winter: Second Winter

200px-NBC-TV_Special.jpg

The LP of Elvis's comeback special, original pressing in mono. Must spin the DVD one day.

Single of Day after Day by Badfinger. Nice track.

The next day I went to Quality Records who were (are??) having a classical sale: 50% off second hand vinyl and 30% of second hand plastic.

I got:

Fernando Germani plays Bach at the Royal Festival Hall - bit of organ music including Toccata and Fugue.

Shostakovich Concerto No1 for Piano and trumpet along with Concerto No2 for Piano and orchestra. Both performed by Moscow Radio Large Symphony Orchestra and Dimitri himself playing the piano on the Concerto No2.

Brahms Piano Quintet played by Sviatoslav Richter and the Borodin Quartet.

All cheap so why not.
