Oh Neil.. Is there a better groove than Cowgirl In the Sand....

Who else remembers all those "special" discs? Direct-to-Disc, Half-Speed, Super Discs?

I always thought I'd found gold when I ran across an "import" album.

FullSizeRender (resized).jpg

#256 2 years ago

I'm certainly no one to have detailed knowledge of cutting vinyl, but my simple understanding is that cutting at half-speed allows time to render more detail and theoretically more dynamic range into the groove.

#259 2 years ago
Quoted from Darcy:

Fairly sure that mass market vinyl LPs were made by pressing hot vinyl between metal plates.

Sorry for my careless description. Yes, pressing vinyl and cutting half speed into the master lacquer.

#260 2 years ago

Played the hell out of these albums....
God's speed Greg Lake, we will miss you!!

Quoted from Milltown:

.. when you buy records at least you own something..

And even when they decide to change it years later, you still have the original. Can't beat album art.

#269 2 years ago
Quoted from Milltown:

I just purchased a killer late 70s technics direct drive table..

Great to see the good old Discwasher close by. I still have and use the one I had back in the 70's.

#271 2 years ago

My last little bottle was D3. Pretty darn worn.. filled with D4 refill. (that's about gone too..)

Does anybody else remember the Sound Guard record preservation system?
I have a lot of my albums dated on the jacket after using it. So far they still sound great!

Quoted from Rascal_H:

Picked up today.
Couple .38 Special, couple Kinks, couple Hall & Oates, and a 99 cent Willie Nelson for good measure. All on my super messy basement floor (mid shop job gets a little crazy down here).

I hope that is pinball dirt on those q-tips...

Seemed a fitting place to post. In memory of Butch Trucks. Thank you for all my years of enjoying your albums.

A couple of pictures from one of the Allman Brothers concerts that I had the privilege to attend.

Anyone else ever use or even remember the Dennesen Geometric Soundtractor?
For all of us anal retentive vinyl junkies.
I think it carried over into pinball collecting in later years.....

How about the thrill of searching the "cut corners" sale bin and finding those great deals.

Bonus points for the Booker's.

I like the dancer....

#293 2 years ago
Quoted from ssbodyman:

Alright let's get this back to being somewhat pinball related

Excellent! The club is back alive.

About the best pinball related I can do now with my one single pin!

#303 2 years ago
Quoted from pinster68:

A few years ago I picked up a Pro-Ject Debut Carbon TT

Reminds me of my old AR turntable. Basic and good sounding.

#314 2 years ago
Quoted from ultimategameroom:

The look on a persons face who sees a laserdisc for the first time is always priceless!

I love the old Laserdiscs. I wish I had more of them. I agree, it's great to see someone's expression when the message comes up to flip the disc in the middle of the movie!
I use a nice old Pioneer machine. I love the mega size remote.

There are some great old titles on Laserdisc that just don't seem be the same carried over to newer format.
I love the signed copy of Phantasm. BOY!!!

I'm familiar with the concert, but can anyone tell me about this press?

I'm no help... all I had was the 8 Track version of the concert...

#324 2 years ago

So post that obscure album in your collection!
Band members jumped ship to ship on the fly...

Anyone else add video to their listening room? I'm sure there are killer home theater setups on Pinside.

#339 2 years ago
Quoted from Chisox:

I have a nice Oppo Blue Ray/DVD/CD/SACD player hooked up to my rig. Not a big fan of 5.1 or 7.1 surround. I'm just a 2 channel guy I guess. Concert DVDs (like The Last Waltz) get lots of play over here. I love putting a good concert DVD on, pouring some bourbon, and CRANKING it.

Don't you love the Oppo!? I use the BDP-103. Great player.

#341 2 years ago
Quoted from Chisox:

Yes! It's fantastic. I prefer vinyl obviously, but I still have 2000 CDs.

I've never played a music CD with the Oppo. I use it for movies and concert DVDs. Blu-ray music discs seem to be generally excellent! I've tried to collect classic rock concerts on DVD. It's great to see bands that I never had the opportunity to see live.

#344 2 years ago

How many here can raise their hand as having been a member of the Columbia Record Club? Get a new album about every month, keep it or send it back. Oh man how I looked forward to opening those packages!

#352 2 years ago
Quoted from ssbodyman:

Anyone else have this version of Tommy?

Very cool album! I have not seen the pinball inside before!

My Meaty Beaty has at least Pinball Wizard....

#367 2 years ago
Quoted from Chisox:

I swear I've had that Shure in my basket at least three times but ended up with something else, usually the m97xe. I like the Ortofon red and blue but wanted to try something different. We'll see.

Last cart I bought was the Grado Gold. So far I've been very happy with it for the price.

Anyone like the Beastie Boys?
Here are some excerpts from my collection:

Awesome collection!

#411 1 year ago

I think one of the coolest album ideas was Elvis Costello "Armed Forces".
With the little mini 33 of Watching the Detectives / Accidents Will Happen.
Underappreciated IMO.

Quoted from Fixie:

On the "Yes" side , here's a couple of framed autographed covers on my wall.

Many a bong hit back in the day to "Yours is No Disgrace"

One of my Columbia Record Club deliveries back in '69.

Zoot Allures. Great tunes.

#441 1 year ago
Quoted from Jam_Burglar:

If he had a huge batch of funk 7"s you'd be much more likely to have something.

Funk 7's. First time I've heard that!

Bought this James Brown around '70 at my local Roses 5 & Dime department store.
WELL worn cover from lots of enjoyment.
The lady made some smart remark at checkout... guess it was that 15 yo white kid in Eastern NC buying "Sex Machine".

Put together a list of what you have and post it with what you want for it.

#452 1 year ago
Quoted from Chitownpinball:

So are yall gonna change the name to the "vintage" vinyl club? I havent seen a recent band in a while if at all.

This is about the most "recent" you'll see from me.
Seems in keeping with "recent" pinball. (:

DSCF5912 (resized).JPG

#470 1 year ago
Quoted from Chisox:

Here's some new stuff I picked up this week
All Them Witches
Anderson. Paak

It makes me feel old when I look at bands and realize I've never heard the names before..... (Ok, well maybe Beck..)

#479 1 year ago
Quoted from Chisox:

Couple more new ones came today.

I 'wonder' which is your favorite???

#485 1 year ago

There are people still into 45s too right?????

Yes, I have a few. I love good 45s. Wish I had a nice juke to go along with them.

... Judas Priest Gull pressings.

You can PM me what you have and maybe want for the Judas Priest stuff. You can mail them right to me. (:

#498 1 year ago

Seems with album collecting was collecting the concert posters. I have a few boxes of them and some nice original classics framed. I'm sure there are other concert poster collectors in the group.

Late night Doors... in Discrete 4 Channel. In the day I thought my Marantz Quadraphonic was the bomb.

FullSizeRender.jpg-3 (resized).jpeg

#598 1 year ago
Quoted from Chisox:

I remember hearing about quadraphonic sound as a kid. Is it really a thing, like 4 channel sorround?

Yes, it was very cool to play with at the time. With the Marantz, you could plug in different decoders too.

http://classicreceivers.com/marantz-4400

#602 1 year ago
Quoted from Chisox:

That thing is a beaut. $1250 in 1974 = $6250 today so that must have been top of the line. Although that was back when the stereo was the centerpiece of the family room, not the TV.

I couldn't afford the big Marantz back when. I had the baby version. (:

#603 1 year ago

Late night southern blues with some Wet Willie.
Saw them in concert with Lynard Skynard as the intro band. Oh yeah..

And .25 a gallon gas.

#615 1 year ago
Quoted from littlecammi:

The Captain and Me by the Doobies was one of my favorite 4-channel reel-to-reel tapes

I think the reel to reel is fair game here. It might not be vinyl but it's pure analog. I still use my Pioneer regularly!

#620 1 year ago
Quoted from electricsquirrel:

$9.00 to see Led Zeppelin.
Those were the days.

Festival seating... the ticket never got taken. They opened the doors and got out of the way.

#629 1 year ago
Quoted from jhanley:

Actually it was 50 cents a gallon around then.

Around '72-'73 in eastern NC we had it for .25 at the self serve pumps. I remember it shooting up there in the "gas shortage". What a bunch of bull that was waiting in line for a quota of gas.

#630 1 year ago
Quoted from SteveO:

I got crushed a couple of times at festival seating concerts. A Zeppelin show had to be a madhouse.

I remember that scary feeling. When the crowd started moving into the door, for a moment being carried along with my feet off the ground.

So I snapped a couple quick pics last night.

Decades old dead fan... My European tour album is nearly falling apart...
But the vinyl stays perfect!

#656 1 year ago
Quoted from greatwichjohn:

Worst album I have had to listen too in some time. Rhythm of the night by DeBarge, the only decent song.

LOL... great call!

Great find today sealed copy from 1990.

I always hated it when the record store put stuff in the sale bin and clipped a notch out of the cover or cut the corner off.

#676 1 year ago
Quoted from Jam_Burglar:

Hey pinside vinyl club, check out my 100% vinyl '80s Mix.
I took over 100 records and blended and scratched them all together into a continuous, hour-long pop/electro mix.

They're going to love me at work tomorrow! LOL!

#703 1 year ago
Quoted from pacmanretro:

Had a few a bit early and got the garage "radio" goin. Funny is that the title strips aren't correct so its a drunken fun mystery ;D

One of these days I gotta' get a juke.

#704 1 year ago
Quoted from littlecammi:

I remember when that edition came out. Very nice that the vinyl itself is a deep purple color.

Hard to believe it was nearly 20 years ago. It's become a pretty hard to find album. Wish I'd picked up a dozen copies back then. Who knew.

#705 1 year ago
Quoted from Redketchup:

I got my fix this afternoon!

Never grow tired of Bowie.

#707 1 year ago
Quoted from Chisox:

Fleetwood Mac has been a favorite since I was spinning my dads back in the 70s.

Yes! Since I was spinning it and .... well in another state... back in the 70s.

#712 1 year ago
Quoted from Chisox:

OK this is currently spinning, unfortunately on my CD player (cue the boos). One of my favorites (Wagner and Hunter are unbelievable on this, as is the whole band). Has anyone bought the re-issue or should I just hit Discogs for an older pressing?

Get the original. (: GREAT choice!

I needed a little Humble Pie tonight.... "Are you ready?!"

Man I love this album:

That is certainly one not in many stacks.

#751 1 year ago
Quoted from Jam_Burglar:

I see Songs in the Key of Life in there. Does it still have the 7" that came with it?
Also, the B-Side to that 3rd Bass 12" in nice. Derelicts of Dialect!

DANG Burglar, you gave me a BIG flashback. I had to run down and check the LP. It has been so long since I played that album that I had totally forgotten it had the little 7" with it.

FullSizeRender.jpg-1 (resized).jpeg

#758 1 year ago
Quoted from maglar:

Nice little score for me this weekend.

Your score included several of my favorites.... YES, Low Spark and Delaney and Bonnie.
Saw Bonnie Bramlett singing along with the Allman Brothers once in concert.

#759 1 year ago
Quoted from Jam_Burglar:

The only other album I have with a bonus 7" is Elvis Costello - Armed Forces.
Were there others you can remember?

The Astrology Album? (:

#767 1 year ago
Quoted from Ronnie1114:

The latest speakers pickup: A set of JBL L80t, scored them off Craigslist. Currently waiting on a re-foam kit for them. Very excited.

I loved the JBL sound. Great pickup! Those foam covers don't look bad at all.

Anyone within driving distance of Johnson City that wants a free pair of DCM Time Windows, let me know. They need new foam covers, original ones are gone. Probably a few dings as well. I hate to throw them out but it's time to clean out the storage room.

Looks GREAT. Excellent job.

Outstanding!! A Jaco Pastorius fan! One of my 2 favorite bass players for a few decades.

Quoted from Coyote:

Not sure if I can join or not. Will let ya'll decide.
I have very few albums - most of them from my short stint at a radio station. Most of the 12"ers I have are singles or remixes.
Then I have about 400 45's, of various ages. Mostly purchased to put in here:

It's vinyl. 45s are pure vinyl!

Kind sir, you get a pass this time but if one more person calls records "vinyls" I'm releasing the hounds!

Quoted from Coyote:

Hah, cool.
I wonder what other unique or 'different' vinyls ya'll have

I still think one of the most "different" albums I have is the Jeff Bridges "Sleeping Tapes". The only album I have never opened. I think they are actually quite good in a strange sort of way...

Quoted from Chisox:

Picked this up this week to honor the one year anniversary of his death, still can't believe it. They did a nice job on this re-pressing, straight from the analog masters, not just a transfer from a CD.

I loved Morris Day in the movie. He really set the tone for The Time.

Quoted from Ronnie1114:

Love this album!

Some of the best song transitions ever on this album.

The Dead was the only band I ever lost a job over. Laid out of work to stand in line for tickets.

My restored AR XB. Also own a couple Technics DD"s.

Super job on the AR. I had to search for this old pic. I knew I had my old AR somewhere!
Even included the old Dokorder! Memories from the ads on the King Biscuit Flower Hour. Man.. that probably dates me......

Quoted from Chisox:

I have an Lp Bin and love it. My wife bought me one for Christmas about 8 years ago. I don't like browsing my albums by tilting my head and reading the spines, I want to flip them forward like I'm at a record store.

Damn.... more money...
And less wear on the album covers. There you go. I NEED one. (:

Friday night feels right for some classic Stones.

IDK how many of you are into The Dead, but this beauty just arrived in the mail today. 5 LP set of Cornell 5/8/77, probably the best Dead show of all time. So stoked to have this on vinyl

GREAT to see the Dead alive and well in '17.

I don't know though... I think the Duke show in '78 was the best.... what I remember of it anyway!

Quoted from Ronnie1114:

Picked up some Zeppelin today... One question, aren't the windows on Physical Graffiti supposed to spell out P-H-Y-S-I-C-A-L G-R-A-F-F-I-T-I? On this copy, there are only the sleeves for the records.

Yes it did. I wonder if you're not just missing that insert? There were the 2 record sleeves and another one with the lettering.

Led Zeppelin III had a cool "spinner" on the cover to change the windows. Great stuff at the time.

Really has nothing to do with vinyl... but on Led Zeppelin... I love Youtube. Found footage from the concert I attended in "77!! What a flashback...

#884 1 year ago

Wonderful festival seating. The only reason I had the ticket left. They opened the doors and got out of way. Scariest moments I ever had in a concert. Stood in front of the right speaker array.. Loudest concert I ever attended, hands down. I'm convinced it's why I have hearing problems and tinnitus! It was apparently John Bonham's birthday. I had no idea at the time. Maybe why they played a great concert!

....so do i get to unwrap a record that's been sealed for 43 years?

If you plan to enjoy listening to it, yes.
It's like "Time in a Bottle".

I really need to get some Buddy Holly in my collection.

+1 Love some Buddy Holly! Another rock'a billy favorite is Johnny Burnette.

And some rock'n roll Bill Haley! (:

Rockin' out with some Steppenwolf tonight...

And Howlin' For My Baby... oh man. Turn it up!

Way too quiet this weekend. Let's crank it up!
RIP Scott Weiland. It was great.

....I ended up with these 8 for 10 bucks.

With the recent vinyl surge, it's incredible to get 8 albums for $10 these days. Great score!

Quoted from Agent57:

Blasting this one right now, 1st press with "alternate" cover. You never hear much about Steve Winwood's guitar playing but he's more than holding his own with Clapton on "Had To Cry Today," especially near the end when they both start going off - great stuff.

I posted a pic of my album with the original cover. It actually got a "thumbs down" from someone... anal character I'm assuming.
Very interesting story behind the choice of album cover at the time. (and what happened to the chrome...)

RIP Gregg Allman, thanks for all the great music.

+1. When I was in school at ECU in the 70's, I saw Gregg do a solo performance at a small club, The Attic, following the release of his Laid Back album.
One of the best shows I've ever seen.

Great memories. My first copy of Live at Leeds was on 8 track. Still analog.

Quoted from Chisox:

It's the benchmark for live records for me. They keep releasing deluxe, super deluxe, super duper deluxe versions of it and I keep buying them.

Your Bowie post reminded me of one of my favorite live albums. Had to put it on tonight!

Flea market impulse buys. Fleetwood Mac Tusk, Led Zep II, couple Hall & Oats, Kinks Preservation Act 2

Nice impulse grab. ... that Hall and Oates in makeup always has been a little creepy.... but a great album. (:

Another live album and one of my favorites since it came out in 2006. Highly recommended!

OMG! I'm a Neil'o junkie!

Quoted from electricsquirrel:

I love that version!
In fact, one of my favorite NY albums.

I think the one I've played the most is a toss up between After the Gold Rush and Everybody Knows This is Nowhere.
The intro to Cowgirl in the Sand is always mesmerizing to me.

I start feeling my age when I look back at the female artists that really influenced me.
Many young folks today don't even know who they are.....
