Quoted from SteveO:
The first album I got was in 1973: Deep Purple- Made in Japan. It still sounds great after all these years.
My favourite Deep Purple album. Saw them a couple years ago sans Blackmore. Still great
This is a timely thread corresponding to my recent revival in interest for my vintage stereo gear. All of my equipment has been around since the 80's and still sounds fantastic. What was that? Bose Sound Dock? Sorry couldn't hear it, my Cerwins were cranked
I remember that Robert Williams artwork was featured in Heavy Metal magazine in March 1983, (I think I still have it somewhere), and the title was indeed "Appetite for Destruction". Now we know where GnR got the idea for the title of their first album
Hey Vid that's odd I've never seen the first Virgin Killer sleeve. We had the second one in Canada as well! I gotta admit though that first one is pretty graphic so prolly why Canada didn't allow it either.
Just felt like a little Pain and Pleasure for some reason. Must've been O-din's Priest thread
Quoted from bob_e:
What model is your Yamaha, black face, receiver ?
I have a R9 that is not being used
It's the AX500U integrated amplifier. I bought it new sometime in the late 80's. I love the sound quality from this amp, but I will probably replace it someday with an older Yamaha, the CA-800, or CA-1000, both of which I own, but both need restoration.
Quoted from HoakyPoaky:
Love your Jason Edmiston print dude! I have a couple myself. One of my favorite artists
Thank you, and thanks for recognizing it! I love it too, and hope to get more of Jason's work. Would you believe almost nobody has ever mentioned it when I have people over? I mean it's the Bride for god's sake, not the mother in law!
Quoted from pacmanretro:
Who here has decoded the writing on this LP jacket?!
No cheating!! Lol.
I think I still have it written on a paper in mine, but I don't recall off hand.
I once decoded the script on the inner sleeve of Diary of a Madman, so I'll assume it's the same script. I'll have to check it out!
As long as you are cleaning with a good solution they will all give you good results. I landed on this one and I really like it. It wasn't cheap, but it also didn't break the bank like some of the higher end units. Wet cleaning saved a lot of old vinyl in this house!
Quoted from electricsquirrel:
How does the Okki Nokki work?
Does it have a vacuum?
It works very well. Yes it has a vacuum and a pretty strong suction. By the end of a cleaning session I'm always amazed at the extremely dirty solution that gets dumped down the sink. You should even clean new vinyl they say, and I do.
YouTube has some good Okki Nokki videos if you're interested.
Quoted from Fulltilt:
Keep a pack around. You don't think about them till you need them.
I clean all my vinyl eventually and after that I throw away the paper sleeves and replace with the MoFi sleeves. If the inner sleeve is printed with lyrics or artwork I keep it empty in the jacket.
Friday night tunes! Check out the script on the Stampeders' "Ballsy" album, pretty familiar lol! Released in 1979 at the height of Bally's best era. Probably not a coincidence . And no, those are not 1 1/16" regulation sized pinballs lol.
Quoted from Fulltilt:
Santana. One of my first and most favorite rock albums.
Borboletta one of the most spiritual and moving.
I love this one too! Got the re-issue last year. It's fun discovering all the hidden people in that painting. I almost don't even see the lion anymore haha
