3 new additions, all great album re issues. I'm especially fond of Marcos Valle. That one has been out of reach for years.
The Spin Clean also came the other day. I'm impressed with the quality and awesome results on old records from 50s and 60s. some play like new!

#5102 88 days ago

Nice.

Yeah - Clean Records are a big improvement.

I wish I had bought my RCM 10 years earlier than I did...
likely one of the best upgrades you can make in your playback equation.

That Curtis LP is a great one.

Working my way down the Mosaic Box Set Shelf, today. The Complete BN Grant Green and Sonny Clark Sessions going right now.

Mingus up next.

#5103 88 days ago

That sounds like a nice way to spend your Sunday, Guitarded.
I can't get over Mingus, ever.
I spent the morning with Errol Garner. A clean version. What an improvement.

Curtis is certainly a great album, but so far Superfly ranks higher. Subject to change...

#5104 87 days ago

Quit zooming in on the boobs! Monday is a dry day so I’m not sure why I’m playing this as it’s impossible to listen to without a whiskey.

So weird seeing those records in new condition!

#5106 87 days ago
Quoted from waldo34:

Operation Mindcrime makes my short list of all time favorites.[quoted image]

One of the best conceptual albums ever made (IMO). Although the album made the charts it wasn't given the credit it deserved. What always got me about that bands early albums was the fact that they appeared to be overly produced but then they would pull it off live. The singer had a phenomenal voice, unfortunately no longer!

#5107 87 days ago
Quoted from Jam_Burglar:

Yeah, I'd love to own the originals, but Marcos Valle is quite pricy.
Lonnie Liston Smith's expansions is up in a couple of days. Re issue too.

#5108 86 days ago

One of my earliest albums. Still one of the best.

I built an attachment to clean records in the ultrasonic awhile ago. I cleaned a few records with great results, and never bothered with the rest of the collection. Is anyone else doing this? I bought some Triton X-100 but I can't find the recipe for the cleaner. I know it was distilled water, isopropyl alcohol and the Triton. The thing I never figured out, and probably why I stopped using it was rinsing and drying. Any tips? I'm working from home and could easily swap out records all day.

Quoted from waldo34:

This was their peak, in my opinion. Empire was pretty great too, but if I can have only one...

#5111 85 days ago

Gloria was in the free bin, figured she deserved a new home. Giving it a spin hoping I was correct. First song, so far so good.

What record cleaning system do most people recommend? I could really use one, but don't want to break the bank either. I'll have to look around on amazon.

#5115 83 days ago

I'm real happy with my Spin Clean.

Either get a Spin Clean or an Orbitrac if you are on a budget.

If you can afford a bit more, and have sufficient numbers of LPs to justify it, you can usually find a good deal on a used VPI when someone upgrades theirs.

Also, lotta recipes for homebrews out there as well.

Does that handle 45's? (I mean, in the US, with the larger spindle holes.)

#5118 83 days ago
Quoted from Coyote:

Spin clean does 12" 10" and 7" just fine

I'm not sure Shellac likes the cleaner though?

Spin clean does a good job. I'm not sure how it compares to ultrasonic.

#5119 83 days ago
Quoted from HoakyPoaky:

I’ve had one of these for about 10 yrs. Does good work but if you can find a used VPI in your budget that would be your best bet.

Friday night, let's fire it up. Getting funky.

#5121 83 days ago

After a long week decided to lock into the funk tonight.

Last post tonight. Another short list favorite. If it smells funky by you I'm dropping the bomb, the P-Funk, Mothership landing.

A lazy Saturday morning in quarantine.

This isn't so bad right now.

Quoted from Chisox:

Finally couldn’t fit another album in my LPBin. Now to get 500 more to fill up #2.[quoted image]

Say, did you buy that cabinet or build it? I am looking for a better solution right now, I have some storage in the cabinet for my record player, all the rest of my records are in metal crates, which don't seem to be damaging them, but I don't really like it. Also, getting down to some really crunched out garage b-sides today!

edit: I figured it out about 2 seconds after I posted this, lol. A bit pricey, but I think it might be the way to go.

Just got this today, one of the best albums released in the 90s, and one of the best sounding hard rock records I’ve ever heard. Usually hard rock/metal albums are a hot mess but they really engineered this one nicely (to my ears). This Music on Vinyl pressing is fantastic too.

I did Angel Dust once.... I don't remember if there was any music playing.

Same here. One time. All I remember is going to the movies and now that I think about it that's all I remember. Some dick head put it in a joint.

So did I, 1986. I swear there was music playing.

I've wanted this & AIC's Jar of Flies for a long time, just haven't pulled the trigger. I love the quality on all my Music On Vinyl purchases so far.

#5132 80 days ago

Just one of my record cabs...

I pre-ordered the MFSL version. One of the few times I didn't double up, too. Too bad for me.

Would love to A/B the MOV / MFSL version one day.

#5135 80 days ago

Angel Dust is one of the best sounding albums from the 90's...no doubt.

#5136 80 days ago

I was really looking forward to their summer Shed support tour.....

#5137 80 days ago

The Real Thing sounds damn good, as well. The OP, especially.

#5138 80 days ago

All of the Mr Bungle albums sound good as well.....they were always well produced and engineered.

I didn’t even realize there was an MSFL version of Angel Dust. That’s gotta be killer. Waiting on my MOV version of King For A Day to arrive.

#5140 80 days ago

The MFSL sounds amazing. Not one of their weird mixes. Got it forever ago...

and I really wish they would wake up to the potential of doing a lot of other 90s HTF LPs.

#5141 79 days ago

He’s my rocker. Likes anything I play!

#5145 78 days ago

Enjoyed that so much decided to stick with them. Really forgot how much i enjoyed the music on these records.

Also, no idea why my pics are not uploading correctly tonight.

#5147 78 days ago

I know this isn’t vinyl but, like fulltilt, I like to watch the occasional concert film. Iggy Pop backed by Queens Of The Stone Age. I love the Stooges with all my heart, but these guys sound fantastic.

#5149 76 days ago

So with my wealth of corona quarantine free time I built a cabinet for my excess vinyl. I used the single plywood sheet plans that have been floating around forever.

That green camouflage finish isn't working. I can still see the cabinet. Maybe if you put it outside among some bushes?
