i didn't buy the vinyl version (nothing in my house to playback on) but I can imagine it probably sounds sweet. so somebody buy it and report back, ok? :biggergrin: it is my favorite album right now.

Wishing the best to everyone out there. Take care .
Haven't grabbed much vinyl lately. Had been enjoying some Anthony Braxton which introduced me to the name Woody Shaw as they had a collaborative album with The iron Men. Which led to seeking out Shaw's highly regarded Rosewood. Also snagged Living Colour's third album Stain. (on transparent green vinyl as it turned out)

and just for Mark:

The bass players are as follows:
Rosewood: Clint Houston
The Iron Men: Cecil McBee (double bass)
Living Colour Stain: Doug Wimbish

techmoan's youtube episode How a forgotten 1949 Format War shaped the future of records
40 minutes long, quite comprehensive with a lot of info flying by, but if you happen to be spending a lot of time at home...

Blade Runner 2 record set. On chrome vinyl. Freaking smooth as glass chrome vinyl. Have to use a 45 adaptor. Look like gigantic triple-thick double-sided cd's. Sounds like crap, or slippery crap. Actually there is no real sound, just a low level whooshing as the needle just slides around aimlessly. What a rip off. Looks cool though. Dollar bin..

I'll have you good people know I have given back over 200 lps to our local record store. I mean I got store credit and all, but I am downsizing. Getting it down to just the "really enjoy having". I mean I really enjoy having the vinyl, but there's such a thing as too much of a good thing. At least I think so. Now. :)
