Quoted from Fulltilt:

I loved that ride! Now that my daughter is grown, I doubt I'll ever see it again. ):
I picked this similar one up a long time ago...can't remember where. It was great sounds for scaring the kids on halloween!

Oh man, I had that record when I was a young'n. Mom hated it.

#1213 1 year ago

I haven't found the right jukebox yet but I've been buying up 45s to put in one once I do. Would love to have one with a visible transport but that particular feature seems to about double the $$ from what I've seen.

Spilt Milk is incredible. All the genius of Brian Wilson and Queen rolled up and engineered to perfection by JJP and I don't mean that short guy from New Jersey.

The record store we go to

It’s a bit of a hike from you but have you ever checked out Record Connection in Ephrata? He’s got a ridiculous amount of vinyl, I’ve been picking out 45s for the jukebox I don’t have yet too.

#1515 1 year ago

Can anyone find an original Joy Division's first album? And no, I'm not a Nazi sympathiser.

https://www.discogs.com/sell/release/498855?ev=rb

It is, there are two copies of the original 7" version (assuming that's the one desired due to the comment about Nazis) ranging between $3800-$5000. The 12" is far easier to locate and considerably less dear, not to mention all the dubious reprints over the years.

The receiver weighs nearly 100lbs but Vol 4 is the heaviest thing ever recorded. My well loved original copy.

I love the silver-face Pioneers from the 70's. Currently rocking a much more modest SX-780.

#1778 1 year ago
Quoted from Fulltilt:

There has been a notable lack of Springsteen. Clarence Clemons was incredible.

I was in Asbury Park the night Clarence passed. I wish I could say I was there for better reasons, but I was taking my wife to see Marina and the Diamonds at the Stone Pony. We did go to Silverball afterwards though!

Picked up the RSD release of Nebraska a couple years back, it will always be my favorite of his.

Bummer about O'Riordan, but she knew the deal. Salvation is free.

#1786 1 year ago

Only seen Al Stewart once but he was enchanting. He was opening for Dave Mason and what was left of Traffic at the Chameleon Club in Lancaster PA around '98, got to meet them all backstage after the show.

#1788 1 year ago
Quoted from yfz450:

Know that club well. Lived in Lancaster a few years in the early 80’s when I worked for RCA.

Oh yeah, I know where the old RCA complex was out there on 23/New Holland Ave. Berle now, I think? We inherited some pretty talented engineers from them when I was working at Cardinal Technologies in the early to mid-90's, back when retail electronics were still being manufactured in the US.

#1791 1 year ago
Quoted from yfz450:

Oh yeah Cardinal, then you must know John Troutman. He was my supervisor at RCA. I worked with most of those engineers as I was an engineering technician there.

I do indeed remember John. We didn't work directly with each other but his cubicle was only a few over from mine. Small world...

He's one of a few from that team I've lost track of but I still keep in touch with quite a number of ex-Cardinals. It was a fascinating and dynamic place to work, like nothing I've experienced since really. We even kept a keg of Molson Golden in the lunchroom on Fridays...

#1796 1 year ago
Quoted from rolandthoms:

wont resonate with you classic rockers (my default listen also) but I just received this in the mail yesterday. My gift of vinyl to my 16 year old son.
Moby's "play"

I was a big Moby fan in the 90's and saw him live quite a few times. Kinda grew out of his music but here's hoping that album gets your son as much "play" as it did for me back when it came out! lol It was a guaranteed panty-dropper back then, up there with the second Enigma album.

#1810 1 year ago
Quoted from shock_me:

Happy Birthday! I turned 52 yesterday. This was my choice.

Great album, love the phone too! Western Electric 500DM?

#1814 1 year ago
Quoted from shock_me:

Thanks! The only info embossed on the phone, (which actually works), is Northern Telecom 1970. Prolly Canada's version of the Western Electric.

Yes, long story with antitrust suits going back to the 40’s but they are essentially the same. I’m working on a similar vintage Nortel this morning, the DMS 250:

#1815 1 year ago
Quoted from lasermel:

I love the "vintage" feel of the equipment from "my" era and have restored a humble Pioneer system that was nice in the 70's

SX-1250? We have a couple Pioneer silver-face guys in here.. I'm still rockin' the SX-780 but I dug out a pair of Andrew Jones' speakers for it this week, wife wasn't digging the NHT/M&K setup I had been using.

#1821 1 year ago
Quoted from pacmanretro:

Is that a set for a scene from The Matrix?!

I wish, because then I could take the pill... no, it's where I've been spilling my coffee for the past couple years. At night I like to put my head down, walk real fast and pretend I'm Red 5 making the trench run at the end of Episode IV.

That looks like my old IBM XT and dot matrix printer. (:
I think you need this in your shirt pocket when preparing to take out the Death Star.

You're gonna make me go look now, but I think it's actually an old Sun workstation... definitely a 9-pin dot matrix though, and I do love that noise.

I would totally walk around with that toy in my shirt pocket, even though he's not how I got my nickname mmkay.

#1826 1 year ago
Quoted from Jason43:

Yeah, I scooped it yesterday along with Bjork - Vulnicura ($14.45) and DangerDoom - Mouse & the Mask ($12.99). This is like the sixth time I've bought records in the past month after I said I needed to stop. Gonna wind up with cirrhosis of the wallet at this rate.

Recent find. Took a flyer on the album having really only known the Rehab song. Turns out to be a really good listen.

I picked that one up on vinyl recently too but was already hopelessly hooked on the album from the first time I heard her sing, "What kind of fuckery is this?"

I'd follow it up with 'Right on Time' too...

I gotta do something nice for my mailman. He's walking up to my steps a couple times a week instead of just filling the box through his Jeep window and he's not built like he's used to doing that.

#2252 10 months ago
Quoted from Fulltilt:

Raise your hand if you remember Mathew Southern Comfort.
It was a “cut out” at the time. I think they used floppy disc punches. (:

I can't raise my hand, but I remember floppy disc punches. Mine would take a square chunk out of your palm if you didn't use it on a flat surface. Didn't care, got to use the other side!

Those cutouts have an interesting part of the tale of when the mafia took over MCA Records though... ever follow that?

#2257 10 months ago
Quoted from Coyote:

Local record-store owner (she's in her 80's now..) explained it to me -
Albums with the cut or slit are items unsold, returned to the distributor. They would get credit for returned albums that they could put towards OTHER albums (not a 1, of course! The original 'restocking fee'!) and these returned ones were marked, and then sold to discount stores.

More to the point, royalties were not paid to the artists on unsold (AKA cutouts) records. So when the mafia guys got control of MCA, they would make sure their jukeboxes were stocked up with cutouts to keep the cash flowing in the right direction. They already had complete control of the coin-op business as it was the perfect money laundering setup.

Here are eight from John Valby aka Doctor Dirty.
He was in a Movie "Loosing It" a teenager movie.
He was playing piano in a Bar in Tijuana..wearing a white tuxedo.

Oh. My. God. I'd never heard of him but my wife had an autographed cassette in her car when we first started dating, apparently she heckled him enough at one of his shows that he came over and said 'hi' afterwards. I'll have to show her this, she'll get a huge kick out of it.

About an hour and a half but I know where all the pinball machines up there are, also have an old friend who lives nearby and might appreciate the show.

I picked up that Motorhead along with a couple Calexico records for $12/ea about a month ago. My wife already told me I need a better plan for storing all these records, so I ignored her and ordered a couple more today. Sure wish they'd press that new Janelle Monae album on vinyl, might be the best album I've heard in the past year.

#2434 9 months ago

I buy mostly new vinyl but when I was a kid, I remember having to clean the little dust balls off the stylus as they accumulated every now and then. That just happened again the other night, not sure what my wife was spinning but there it was like back in the day and I had to show her what to do. These days everything goes into MSFL sleeves and gets the carbon fiber brush treatment before spinning so there's very little dirt. I have some spray and microfiber cloths in case I see something nasty. I've been tempted to buy a spin washer but I don't have the time/space/need/etc for one.

#2439 9 months ago

Love the Jackie Brown soundtrack. I remember going straight from the theater after watching the movie to whatever CD store was in the mall and buying it, then going back the next day to buy my first Delfonics album.

How were they?!? Where u see em at!

Santander Arena in Reading PA, first time for Mastodon but we see Primus at least once a year. Great show, the opener ‘All Them Witches’ was the real surprise. I coulda been just fine with them playing through Mastodon’s set.

(not my pic, we’ve started just leaving our phones in the car...)

#2467 8 months ago
Quoted from 30FathomDave:

All Them Witches is awesome. I'd love to see them live.
I like Mastodon in small doses. They're a great band, but like a lot of technically-proficient metal bands, I find them to be a bit "samey" after a handful of songs. I've got a signed copy of Leviathan on vinyl. I should post that in this thread one of these days...

I went straight home and ordered Sleeping Through The War on vinyl... they were solid. I'm not sure if it's good or bad when I can anticipate every move a drummer makes but I was pretty locked-on.

Mastodon's lead singer was corny, he mostly masturbated his guitar the whole night and kept pointing at one single fan he either liked or didn't (couldn't tell) who was behind us somewhere. Plus they suffered from the same problem Clutch did last year, just not sounding that great through Primus' sound equipment. Small doses sounds about right.

#2482 8 months ago

BöC, Journey and Ozzy had a baby, might be the best hard rock album of the year so far.

Got the full story, apparently my wife had her tits out on stage at one of his shows fifteen years ago (underage). The second time she saw him, he kissed her bare ass while she mooned the crowd. In this photo, he's trying to stick his finger in her ass but failed to negotiate her jeans/t-shirt/underwear configuration. He's still a dirty old man for sure.

My little daugther set up! She loves vinyl
[quoted image]

Interesting you say that, my daughter never expressed much interest in music until we made the turntable the focus of our living room. She gets off the bus about twenty minutes before I get home from work and it's not uncommon for me to find she has put a record on to listen to while doing her homework. She still asks Alexa to play the music I don't listen to now and then but I like to think she's being exposed to a pretty good variety.

Quoted from Jam_Burglar:

Dude, you've got the "Thunder Road" board game! My brother and I got that back in the 80s and loved it. Basically Mad Max the board game.

Oh wow, my brother and I had that game too! I hadn't thought about it in years...

Quoted from EdisonArcade:

I wondered where I remembered "Dad I'm in jail" from. That had to be it.

I remembered it from Pump Up the Volume; there's a scene where Christian Slater's character plays it on his pirate radio show.

I wanted a pirate radio station of my own so bad when I was a kid. I think I still do but the moment is gone...

Quoted from vid1900:

Leonard Cohen - Songs of Love & Hate $6.99
Alright, if this price does not get you to buy it, nothing will.

Which reminds me, I was surprised by this recently:

Quoted from Chisox:

Every year I bust out a good bottle of bourbon and sit down and play the first four (and most vital) U2 records. I was a total U2 fanboy in the 80’s and thought they could do no wrong. Well that was true for about 10 years. Either way, these are all great and I really enjoy doing this every year.

I don't listen to them much anymore but I was also a huge U2 fanboy... still have a lot of rare stuff squirreled away somewhere. I did just pick up their new one on double blue vinyl, need to find a time to give it a proper hearing.

Quoted from electricsquirrel:

What's the story on that cool looking table under the album?

That caught my eye too. I saw a picture elsewhere on the internet recently of a pinball bar in the PNW that had tables like that.

Quoted from vid1900:

The last good Rush album before they got all synthed out: Moving Pictures $7.39

Good lookin', I almost jumped on that the other day when it was still around $14. Already have that particular Lana Del Rey but I've been trying to buy Ultraviolence for some time now... always gets cancelled when I find it for a reasonable price.

No RHCP though, I just can't anymore. I liked Mother's Milk when it came out but only because my girl at the time was turned on by it. BSSM was the last one I bought and I can't stand anything after that.

Quoted from jazzmaster:

For some unknown reason, I have this habit of pairing albums and listening to them together. Sometimes they have very little in common, sometimes they do. For me, Frosting on the Beater's cosmic twin is Bandwagonesque by Teenage Fanclub. These records were both released (at least in the US) by the same label about 18 months apart and they were both produced by Don Fleming. While these bands have little else to do with one another they both owe more than a little back rent to Big Star.
Anyway, if earworm harmonies, mind melting melodies and fuzzy guitar hooks are your thing, neither of these records will disappoint.

Own both of those albums, agree 100%. They usually end up getting played in the same sesh.

“Oh my god, they’re Gorgeous.”
Great adds ya’ll. Gza, Teenage Fanclub, Zappa, Posies.

Great album. My brother-in-law introduced me to it.

Quoted from davidlldennis:

Just found the club... This is what my 3 year old picked to listen to tonight... I think I'm doing a good job parenting...
[quoted image]

I'm a firm believer in music as a form of communication when other methods aren't working or have yet to be established. So yes, I'd say you're doing an outstanding job of parenting.
