  • Shelled out 20 bucks for this one but for a Chess pressing, no complaints! Lovin' the great Howlin' Wolf!
  • Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy) - Brian Eno I can't believe I found this original in the used bin at my record store in great shape and for only $18! One of my more exciting record store finds for sure. Holy crap! Major score, PJ_S! And …
  • Who would be responsible for a Mirrorball reissue? I would think Neil still has the word on that. I wonder what a reissue would go for? Looks like used, near mints start at around $35 to $40, US. If pressed on 2 LP's like the original, proba…
  • Good gawd! Dredging up this old thread? Surely ya'll have better things to do!? Anyone for Tennis?
  • Good luck with your move, Matt, and congratulations on the new job! KC seems like a cool town, what little I've seen of it. A good baseball town for sure and rich in music history! Let us know how it goes.

  • Have to rehome my Kitty.. for real this time. I am heartbroken. I will have nothing that gives a shit that I am there..no pet to greet me when I get home..no pet to snuggle up with.. I will be utterly alone.. Oh no, very sad. Truly sorry to hear t…
  • I read something about that the other day. Very sad to hear. Good thoughts going out for Gregg Allman.
  • Down and Out In Paris and London - George Orwell Always good to see an Orwell fan who has read more than 1984 and/or Animal Farm!
  • More good pics! I'm mining them, haha! Toole on my list of "must reads".
  • Nice picks so far! Kudos curmudgeon for Dostoevsky and lexicon for that most wonderful Carson McCullers title! Bill, I'm not familiar with the McCann title. I'll check it out! And thank you for mentioning that, unfortunately, the links lead to…
  • Because I had to work yesterday, I'm living the RSD dream vicariously through all of you who scored. Congratulation all you vinyl fans!
  • Yes. I follow these guys. They are doing such great work.
  • Arc was never gonna be champ. Maybe not... but knowing what this song stands for, there's no way I could pick it as a weakest link. Arc is a great tribute. Reminds of a very Neil Young-type song, much like Life Wasted (Reprise). My favorite …
  • I love Neil Young's Merkinball (Pearl Jam is his backing band on this 1995 album for those who don't know). I also love I Got Id (or ID, Shit, etc.) and Long Road which were two songs both cut from Mirrorball, but ended up on Pearl Jam's own Merkinb…
  • In a way, I'm glad there is Earth Day because it helps raise some awareness. But I honestly don't celebrate one day for the earth. Everyday counts. Everyday I try to at least think about if not do something helpful for the plant and be grateful f…
  • Have a good Earth Day everyone. Now don't get mad at me for saying this, but I don't celebrate Earth Day separate from other days because for me every day is Earth Day! I try to celebrate the earth everyday by doing something to care for it or at…
  • Picked up a few more replacement Neil records to fill in some gaps in my collection: I've always liked Trans, it's a very misunderstood record. Everybody's Rockin is a harmless bit of fun, but I fully accept that Landing On Water is pretty aw…
  • Think about it, folks, who wants this to happen the most? Well, look at it this way, who do you think came up with the concept of "free sex" in the sixties? Women wanting to be promiscuous? Sure, maybe a small percentage. Guys wanting to get la…

  • WooHoo! Riot Act! Hot damn! I love this album! OK, sorry about that, haha! In my opinion, Arc has to go. Interesting song, nice use of Middle Eastern influences but it just doesn't work for me on this fine album.
  • The best ever live album as far as I'm concerned. I know I've posted this photo before but every time I see the cover of "Live on Ten Legs" I think of Link Wray's fine album "Link Wray Rumble" from 1974:

  • I'm and so hoping this is true and they are the real deal. Been waiting for this for a lo-o-o-o-o-g time!
  • 12" 45 RPM's probably means great sound if taken from an analog source. Certainly hope these are available from another source though- I would expect they are.
  • Just picked up a decent copy of this posthumous Hendrix, "Crash Landing". I'll listen to anything Jimi ever recorded at least once but this one, interesting even though it may be and maybe even better that some of the other scraped-together materia…
  • I LOVE THIS THREAD! the world needs more REM!! last year I met up with an old girlfriend and her sister happened to be at her house. I hadn't seen her in almost 15 years.... the first thing she said was "I remember you were obsessed with REM". …

  • Last fall i was taking the Metro north train back to the city from Hudson, NY and was reading Hell's memoir "I Dreamed I Was a Very Clean Tramp" and who happens to sit down across the aisle from my GF and I but Mr. Hell and his wife. I was a little …
