Yeah, released in 1975 it was previously only available on vinyl in/from Japan. It was reissued on vinyl for Europe around 2015, and in the US market last year. Very nice pressing too! (My copy is anyway,.) Live date in Japan with his Headhunters crew.

yard sale score today... Funkadelic, Parliament, Bootsy, Rick James, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Michael Jackson, and a sharp left turn... Kraftwerk. 14 records in all, not counting the double albums.

Some of the covers are a little water damaged and musty, but the records are in fine shape... I haven't seen a single scratch.
get a hammered sound from guitar or bass! http://www.stringhammer.com
hand-made version to raise money for manufacturing... kind of like kickstarter, but you get a fully functional item now

Album!

Nice! i love the beat covers, scares away the collectors and re-sellers, but they are gold to people like you and i that will listen to them.

Just for Markjazzbassist...
The Bass: 3 lp box set. minty lps, box edges a little beat up, $5.
"A historical and critical analytic guide to the major trends in the development and refinement of the fundamental harmonic and rhythmic force in the jazz rhythym section"

Discogs comment section review:
"Entirely unexpected the quality of reference in performance, artists represented, and sound quality. This is an exceptional box set, of which I usually avoid due to my own preconceptions of said sound quality..however entirely proven wrong. Most cuts engineered by RVG.

Upright acoustic bass in my opinion, is a litmus test to evaluate any well assembled 2-channel analog setup. This is true reference."

super cool! the latest i got was the soundtrack for this super cool art installation called Luanda-Kinshasa by Stan Douglas. It's all these killer jazz dudes playing 70's gear (and clothing) in a re-created studio straight outta the 70's playing essentially Afro-beat meats Miles Davis Electric stuff. Very cool and heres the video

on another unrelated note i'm big into cassette now, maybe i will start a new thread for that as it's analog and collectable like vinyl and in some cases even more rare.
