continued creep..


A little over 500 lps at this point.

First Holy grail was Beatles white album that wasn't trashed, found one local a few months ago with pressing 120xxx, album cover vg+, vinyl vg+, no poster, no pics. (don't care Very Happy )


Holy Grail 2 was Led Zeppelin 1 in great shape.
( A practical holy grail, not the turquoise UK pressing pressed the first three weeks that sells for hundreds, I mean as they continued pressing the day after three weeks with orange labeled one that most people have. )
Got that a couple weeks ago. It happened to be quite a thick copy, which is always cool, and it had a perfectly smooth edge all the way around as if it were finished. Very nice copy!


So..Looking for a new holy grail. haha.

much of the collection I have on cd, or remastered cd as well in some cases, so it's fun to compare them.

One thing that continues making this sport entertaining is finding funky fun off the beaten path stuff that has no hope of ever being reissued on cd. Join the club.. Laughing Now there's some holy grail material.


And finally, I have enjoyed seeing my 8 year old daughter anxious to prove that she can handle the record from sleeve to turntable, do the serious spray clean and/or graphite brush clean and place the needle without me.

I love gratuitous use of the fish-eye lens too. Which makes that shot perfect!

What's frameworthy to you guys?
These are some of what are up now, those frames let you swap them out easily.
Some aren't even things I'd listen to, or very often anyway, they just have the "look".

I don't know... I've only got one thing framed right now (the first record I was on as a sideman; yes, it came out on vinyl when that was the thing the first time around; I'm that old!)...

Once I transfer a few things to CD and back them up, I might frame a couple of things that are cool/rare to me (no great shakes to a real collector guy, but I think they're kind of unique)-- I just picked-up a fairly prized Beatle boot in good condition, and I also have one of the earlier singles on VJ. Those will probably get the frame treatment with some Beatles pictures. I _had_ some cool Beatles picture sleeves that my older siblings gave me. I was a fool and took them to my high school radio station, where they were promptly ruined.

I have a pretty early Bowie picture sleeve single, a couple of early Roy Orbison and Everly Brothers discs, and some old Jazz records. Maybe those, and a few of the 78's I have might get framed? Also, a couple of autograph things; for instance, I got James Cotton to sign the CD booklet of my copy of "Chicago/The Blues/Today!", something like that would look cool, I guess.

If I had any decent picture vinyl or etched vinyl (I don't), that would be a shoe-in. If you go to the United Record Pressing sight, you can see a picture of a Willie Nelson etched disc they did. I saw it up close, and it's really an awesome looking piece of art.

Speaking of "the look," shred, I go to our local Salvation Army and Goodwill stores to crate dig every once in awhile. It's almost all Ed Ames and Mantovani and all of that same stuff that everybody got rid of and is constantly getting rid of. One day though, there was this awesome piece of orange vinyl that I wanted to hang in the old studio. The record was something I nor anybody else would probably ever listen to; it was just cool looking.

Anyway, I hid it in back for a later pick-up, but somebody must have snagged it (cue sad wah-wah trumpet)...

And that story reminded me of our recent move to our new location, when I was just starting to get the record library together, and I dropped a 78 of Django Rheinhardt, and of course, it busted into tiny, tiny pieces.

Shellac is not vinyl, kids.

PPS-- R-Funk-- Is that a Brazilian tamborim underneath the Portishead, or just a regular headed tambourine?

How's that Gabor Szabo record? I have a couple ("Dreams" is one of my favorite records) but I don't have "Jazz Raga."

Can someone recommend a sweet sweet turntable/stylus? I'm in the market for something direct drive and wonderful.

Jazz Raga is awesome. It's a total studio geek record, lots of sitars and eastern scales. 1966 Engineered by RVG, Produced by Bob Theile, with Pretty Purdie, Johnny Gregg, and Bob Bushnell
Great fidelity, cool jazz meets surf meets Ginger Baker's solo album?.
I could hear it as the hippy acid scene in an unwritten Madmen episode.

here is another little pile

Hehe - cheers, must do another one of the other side of the room!

Just a regular headed tambourine, pretty big though, think it's 13", so fits nicely on top of my snare for retro soulsville oomph and jingle Smile

Cool. Also, I meant "pandeiro," not "tamborim" (which is actually a tiny drum with no jingles). I had a Portuguese senior moment...

I'd love to see a fish-eye of the other side! Then we'd have Rubberfunk vinyl in stereo, as it should be.
