out of 5 stars No Album Cover- Just a Vinyl Sheath! Verified Purchase. What beautiful pictures displayed on the front and back of the vinyl LP. However, I am sure not happy that it did not come in an album cover instead of the vinyl sheath it was enclosed in. Great vinyl and love the pictures they used for the vinyl. Just wish /5(). Talk Talk's Laughing Stock, the group's album, took a year to make, and yet it has required decades to fully appreciate. Following up on the abstract Spirit Of Eden, which sufficiently alienated Pop fans of the band's earlier material, Laughing Stock took spaces in recorded music to new extremes, with layers of silence breathing through /5(). These could consist of two vinyl LPs in a single 2-LP box, or one double-sided LPs are seven inches across and spin at 45 rotations per minute on your record player. They only have five minutes of playing time per side at most, so they are usually used for singles.
To conclude: If any of these really float your boat you could always try one of the audiophile quality pressings to hear what differences there are.
If you get this Unity and then the Music Matters double 45 you'll get it. The differences aren't subtle. However here the pressing quality is fine, the artwork decent, the transfers good and the price right. The Blue Note 75th anniversary LP vinyl reissue series definitely honors the legacy. I know, it's apropos of nothing, but thought it fair to mention since I've been a frequent complainer here.
The LPs are:. That said, about "saving money" by pressing at United: How is it that even smaller runs are profitable when done elsewhere? For something more mainstream but still maybe on the lower-volume side, consider the Johnny Cash "lost album" Out Among the Stars It sounds sterling!
Dunno where pressed. Overall, and to hopefully get this back on track, YES I agree it's a little sad to even be discussing today where a record is pressed in the context of its musical or purchase value. But here we are, because of what's been allowed to happen through the years. Very quiet and flat. Gatefold cover, sleeve has a nice plastic liner.
Yes, I bought that one too at the behest of a young reader who wanted to know if that's what records are supposed to be like. What I got was what you got. In other words no one gave a shit and every copy was probably that way Rightlet's forget about the audiophile labels for a second and just think about the cheapest new records often cut at United and those from anywhere else.
And make no mistake. But geez, when you're squeezing every last cent out of the production cost, something's gotta give! It's not as if LPs are mainstream. I'm all for these pressings, the audiophile ones are twice the price and if you're a youngster or very value driven you'll note they're The MM editions not twice as good.
Thanks for the mini review, choices are good, and to be able to pick between a value pressing and an audiophile one of an album; especially as they were released over 50 years ago can only be a positive thing. As a result I've already picked up a few audiophile pressings of albums I've liked. As an older person getting into jazz I'm 40the LPs are a great introduction. They make for a nice, enjoyable listen. I'm confused about Out To Lunch being delayed.
I got my copy last week from Amazon. Maybe they sold out of the first batch that they printed up. Don't know. And then go to somebody's house and have a listening session. Besides, the Blue Note sound is not an "audiophile" sound, as far as I'm concerned. IMHO, Rudy did a great job with horns and drums, but sometimes the bass was weak and the piano was boxy.
But who really cares? The music itself is WAY above that! The music is getting on the turntable. Hooray for that! For some reason all the new Blue Note reissues sound louder than my 70s Liberty reissues. I compared the two different Speak No Evils on my smaller system and same results.
But I agree, if you haven't heard previous early era 70s reissues, these new BNs are fabulous. Are they twice as good, or just a bit better? Also, some reissues are much harder than others to find and it can be difficult to determine quality issues when buying used eBay so that the possibilities that Scorpio offers with their MUCH larger reissue base has me thinking about them, but if their quality is much less than the new reissues, more considerations are in order, thanks!
I generally prefer the 70s Liberty or UA reissues over Scorpios. Then again, original or even early reissues are not always better than current reissues. And my ebay money. One in particular, Swing, Swang, Swingin'is just incredible sounding! Going by Penndorf's recommendations, the 70's reissues can be a mixed bag, but at least they are affordable. Sound to me like a typical Capitol rip-off money grab.
I would hope that QRP would take a go at these, I would be all over them. But with this half-ass approach, I think that I will just have to pass. Too bad, I was looking to get most of them I am glad I own Plastylite originals for nearly all the albums I'm interested in. Music Matters, Analogue Productions can't touch them. The audiophile reissues just lay there, the original pressings jump out of the speakers.
I don't care if that means they are "colored", give me that excitement in a tall glass! I have an old scratched Lou Donaldson Gravyand in its poor state the music blasts out of the speakers, basically untouched. I hope I'm not being a pest with this but I wonder if it would be possible with pictures or audio files to illustrate certain things you mentioned early in your review.
I'm not necessarily suggesting that you do it but asking whether others think it would be useful and possible. Clearly taking revealing pix of vinyl is difficult and capturing relevant audio samples probably wouldn't be easy, either. Taking pictures is difficult. I tried with the Zed Clarity, which looks awful to the naked eye but none of it comes through in a photo no matter how I light or angle it.
The dimples are concave. The white streaks might be easier. I'll see what I can do Given the interviews you conducted with relevant parties, where you mentioned your concerns about pressing quality, I have to ask if you managed somehow to obtain pressings that couldn't have been specially selected just for you.
If so, then your experience with this first batch is good news, indeed. Were sealed and not selected. I don't think I've ever gotten a "special" pressing LP anyone I'm really looking forward to picking up a copy of Combustication. Pricing of originals has really gone through the roof. I can't imagine that it would sound drastically different from the original from way back in '98but who knows.
I own an original copy of End of The World Party and it sounds amazing; great pressing to boot! I'm fairly certain it was recorded digitally so the only variable should be pressing quality. I have various Blue Note reissues from the s and s. I searched your site and couldn't find any reviews of them. Key would be knowing who mastered them by examining the inner groove area DMM produces a different sound My copy of Unity says Alan Yosida mastered it.
Perhaps I missed some detail in one of Mr. F's other postings, but I wonder how the mastering chain plays out. Highlighting 'Track Down' is Bishop's deployment of his formidable technique in the service of his active imagination. Personnel: Walter Bishop, Jr. Released: 28 Aug Style: Hard Bop, Post Bop. This album from Venezuela shows the typical trademarks of its creator Daniel Grau. Spaced-out disco grooves, this time even with some nifty female vocals aspirated gently upon the lightfooted waves of synthesizer melodies and pulsating rhythms.
It is one of these positive tunes that make you feel at ease with everything in this world. No wonder that this long out of print gem fetches prices up to Euros among collectors. If you are a fan of what Donna Summer released during the same period of time and love this silky yet vivid feel of the steady pulse the rhythms offer, than you'll have to grab a copy of this beautiful reissue.
This is one of these albums that should have been legendary among the dancing public in the clubs by the time of its release peppered with memorable tunes that even work well 36 years and a massive development in popular music later.

Our spirits tested of late, many of us have played a part in the recent trend of discovering, or rediscovering, the offerings of nearby natural destinations. We entered the trailhead and headed clockwise on the 0.
Approached cautiously, though, the stones lend some unexpected character to the course. Leading up to the bridge, the trail offers natural Kentucky beauty. Worn dirt paths criss-crossed with roots extended like fingers grasping the ground to keep them upright. Dusted with small dry twigs and fallen brown leaves.
Splashes of sparsely-scattered stark-green ferns, saplings and blankets of moss provide a pop of color. Stones we can easily climb.
And an area we can easily explore. With no other hikers around, we take our time. The longer we are there, the longer I want to remain. But this setting demands extra time be spent in appreciation. We are at the base of a massive formation that stretches well above our heads. Beautiful, intricate markings. Colors and swirls. Smooth edges. Jagged edges. And on the ground, stones surround us.
Confused as to where the path disappears, I notice an orange blaze on one of the stones. For the next several yards, the stones are the path. More of the same awaits on the remainder of the loop. A forest rich in geological treasures, old trees. And with each step, we are enfolded within the restorative features of nature. Would that have changed our experience? She can be reached at marj. My Bride just made a batch of popcorn. The smell of the fresh, hot buttered snack briefly took me back in time to the Russell Theatre.
Clyde Barbour used to sponsor Saturday matinees at the Russell. With a coupon found in the newspaper each week, a child could go to the theater and enjoy a movie and a piece of cake. When I was young, Mom and Dad would drop me and my brother Chris off at the theater, where the building would be filled to capacity.
More than once the crowds spilled out of the auditorium. We would sit on the floor and watch the movie through the curtain separating the concession area and the theatre.
The Russell was where I began my lifelong love of movie poster art. Before the previews, a panoply of visual treats kept me stimulated. I would stare at the backlit balconies on the sides of the Spanish Colonial auditorium, wishing someday to enjoy a film from such a lofty viewpoint.
Star gazing at the ceiling, the simulation of the night sky twinkling in the dark. More often than not, I chose Sweet-Tarts. Films are being shown again at the Russell as the effort to restore the theater continues. Visit russelltheatre. One wonderful gift of literature is imagination. Reading something opens our minds eye to see things more clearly than simply thinking something up on the spot.
The following quote from C. Aslan is powerful, awe-inspiring, and almost frightening to the people witnessing his powerful song take physical form as creation unfolded. They were compelled to watch with awe and reverence, and they desired for the creator to notice them. Lewis did a wonderful job capturing the awe God deserves for His mighty acts and the human need to feel His love and affection resting upon us.
Read the exert and imagine how much more amazing and beautiful the creation of our earth must have been. What power He wields. What might He has. What greatness He unleashes. What awe and reverence He deserves. One was that the voice was suddenly joined by other voices; more voices than you could possibly count. They were in harmony with it, but far higher up the scale: cold, tingling, silvery voices.
The second wonder was that the blackness overhead, all at once, was blazing with stars. One moment there had been nothing but darkness; next moment a thousand, thousand points of light leaped out—single stars, constellations, and planets, brighter and bigger than any in our world.
There were no clouds. The new stars and the new voices began at exactly the same time. If you had seen and heard it, as Digory did, you would have felt quite certain that it was the stars themselves who were singing, and that it was the First Voice, the deep one, which had made them appear and made them sing.
The last line, spoken by the Cabby, seems to hit right at the heart of humanity. If we know how powerful, capable, loving, and mighty God is, we live differently. We might hear the same excuses, but God has created us to know without any external provocation or cause that we are designed for something more than this world has to offer. He has designed the laws of Album) to point us to Himself, and He has created the human spirit to yearn for a relationship with Him.
Like the children and cabby in Narnia saw cause to respect Aslan, so we see cause to worship our creator. Like the children longed for Aslan to notice them, we desperately need to feel the love of God resting on us. Those of us who know the true nature of God, it is our duty and our charge to open the eyes of the lost to the one true God, the God of restoration, hope, redemption, faithfulness, and love. I told my students that the music we listen to, the things we watch, and the words we hear become the things we meditate on both day and night.
We must feed our spirit with things that remind us of the amazing Father that we have. We have a Father that created us with purpose and care, who gave us this world to have benevolent dominion They Make Money With The Stars - Pan (2) - Pan (Vinyl. We have Album) Father who gave us a way back to Him so that sin could not keep us separated from Him forever. And, I imagine heaven felt the bitter sadness of watching Jesus die alone on the cross covered in our sin and shame, but what rejoicing there must have been when all of heaven watched the breath of our Creator bring our Savior back to life!
Jesus defeated death for us. Jesus came for us. Jesus is advocating for us! What a wonderful name, the name of Jesus. Romans According to the news network, records outsold compact discs in the first half of this year.
That has not happened since the Big 80s. Audiophiles have always contended Vinyl produces a truer sound. As a Disc Jockey, I less than fondly remember records and all forms of their ilk.
No matter the speed, the problems with the format remain the same. Cue burn, They Make Money With The Stars - Pan (2) - Pan (Vinyl, skips, hisses, and scratches are just the start of a panoply of horrors when dealing with the devil disc.
Settle back in your favorite chair, Gentle Reader. Imagine you have cozied up fireside with your beverage of choice, prepared to enjoy a nice quiet evening listening to the vocal stylings of Basia or Anita Baker on your trusty old record player.
Here we go. Amongst the Snap, Crackle, Pop of sound comes a wisp of a tune. Hallelujah — the music has begun! Has begun! As usual, money talks. That figure is double the income from Compact Discs. Believe it or not, I can wax nostalgic at times. That being said, I can appreciate the past without forgoing the present.
Vinyl music lovers, I hope you enjoy your audio experience — clicks, pops, and crackles notwithstanding. He was adopted from the shelter and then returned for unspecified reasons.
Blue is an Italian mastiff — which means he is massive, just not quite as massive as an ordinary mastiff. Blue is a very sweet boy. A big dog eats the door frame. Bill asked if we could babysit Blue the next Wednesday and I was delighted. Peter distracted Blue by tossing goldfish crackers to him.
Blue was a terrible catch. Every goldfish hit the ground, but Blue was happy to eat them once they did.
