     “Mothership” was $14.67 (!!!) absolutely unreal steal.
    I got this deal as well!!
    Where?
    Yes, please tell us!
    It was through an independent seller at Walmart.com and was only available for a couple hours. It sold out pretty quickly.
    Oh rats!  :grimacing: 

    Thank you, though.


    I would take great caution in purchasing music from the big blue box.  My husband purchased an item that was censored, not labeled as such and the censor method was just to blank out the words. There was no actual attempt to blend it in.  

    We have not purchased music from them since.  My husband prefers all of his band swears to be in place.  :smiley:

    I just got this too, as a gift. I had it on my Amazon wish list. It was actually still a surprise, as I'd forgotten that I'd ever thrown it on that list. But I'm glad I did - I enjoy this album. It's a good one to have for when guests are over - kind of works for all tastes and ages.

    I had to look that up, lol. Nah, I think Nora Jones is much more that than The Revivalists are. She's much more soft/easy listening (and more beautiful).

    Hmmm. :lol: No, frankly, they aren't as cool as Play is. I'm going to say it's the new Mumford & Sons, but without the totally sucking shit part, and with more soul, more funk, and more horns..... actually, scratch that, they are fucking nothing like M&S, lol! Might be best compared to perhaps St. Paul & The Broken Bones?

    Play sucks. My wife was a huge fan, so I got us tickets to see him around then. We left about two songs in. He pretended to play a guitar that wasn’t plugged into anything and ran around the stage pushing different buttons that basically just had his album tracks programmed into them. Just fucking lame. 

    But that’s one of those albums you can put on just to have something in the background that’s not too distracting.

    I don’t know much about Mumford & Sons, but I’m guessing that they actually know how to play musical instruments on a stage and not just push buttons for whatever is programmed into a laptop.

    Finally, after 18 million years, I picked up a great pressing of Tommy.  Way better than the beater I had years ago.   Very pleased with this!  Simply Vinyl/ Polydor SVLP 201

    Agreed.  I'm never satisfied with Who albums.  I've given up on them unfortunately.

    Even Live at Leeds?   That album sounds rich to me.  Perhaps I'm just lucky to have a decent copy, but it is just an average MCA re-issue.

    Fair enough.  I don't have that.  I was thinking more about the studio releases.  But you've made me realize that I don't have Leeds, which is one of the all time great concert videos.

    I totally love Play, but I am definitely not a Moby fan otherwise, as I don't like electronica. That's his one good album for me. Although that is only because of the genre. I don't go for it. I think Moby is very talented. Those antics on stage sound embarrassing though. Not sure wtf that was about. Despite that, I will acknowledge he's extremely talented with what he does (he is also a big animal welfare advocate).
    I hate M&S, mainly because all of their songs sounds exactly the same, lol. Their music is INSANELY formulaic. So yeah, they play real instruments, but that doesn't mean anything if they can't muster any ingenuity when they're writing music.

    For Tommy, The Classic record pressing from 2006 is exceptional. If you don’t mind a digital file cut to vinyl there’s a Kevin Gray cut from 2014, which is very good for cheap.

    But if you want the best early pressings, you need to find a clean UK original Track pressing.  For a US pressing, the early Decca pressings are nice, just not up there with the UK. The trouble with all early pressings, finding a clean version is hard and sometimes expensive.

    Whatever you do stay away from all US MCA pressings... very bad.

    The Classic Records Quadrophenia is pretty stunning, but there were some qc issues.

    I'll check out the Classics series.  Kevin is right on the Decca's.  Those first editions UK are the ones people are after for Who and the Stones.  But they are pricey.  Too much so for me to take a chance on considering the age.

    Just to add to this the standard  live at Leeds vinyl is superb. but there is a half speed remastered at Abbey studios version triple album available (complete 33 tracks)

    I'm also thinking about buying the MOFI repress of the The Band (the Band).  Anyone have this and can opine on the quality?  It is a classic album and MOFI is usually spot on.

    Here's a pre-order that was way worth waiting for!  Juliana Hatfield, Only Everything, Runout Groove reissue.

    From the notes:  "Only Everything is a completely analog record... recorded on 2" tape, mixed on 1/2 inch tape.  Every tape recorder was as Studer and every recording console used was a vintage Neve.  Every edit was done with a razor blade and we had no Autotune, Melodyne, Drumagog or other modern shortcuts.  We did have lots of Neumann tube mics, Gibson Les Pauls, Marshall amps, and a pile of great songs from Jules." -Paul Q Kolderie

    Man, this album is total KILLER!

    It’s great. I think there is an older version mastered by Robert Ludwig they is supposedly excellent but for price and availability of a clean copy the Mofi is a no brainer.

    Yes, I’ve been searching for a nice clean RL original for a while... it’s the way to go. But I have not heard the MOFI. so I can’t help you much there.

    Another one from Jules showed up today!  Juliana Hatfield, Weird, orange vinyl.  Came with some cool goodies including stickers, two buttons and a little pack of Battle Cap sweets.  Had to much to do to give it a proper listen so am setting aside tomorrow night to just soak it in.
