    NEVER go to the record store when someone pays back a sizable loan. IN CASH...... trust me...

    I keep forgetting that Clash album was the influence to the PJ tour sticker...

    Also Kill em All is better than Ride.

    and Master is better than both.
    I agree but if I want a more raw sounding Metallica I put on Kill.  The bass and distortion on that album are top notch while listening through a good sound system.

    Any LCD Soundsystem fans, this is on Amazon.ca for like $15 right now. Double vinyl. 
    This was their last album which I never did purchase...

    I went to a funeral near Cincinnati Friday. The next day before we headed home we stopped at a couple of record stores. I got the Iron Maiden from Facebook. 

    was one of the stores the plaid room?
    Yes, I went to Plaid Room, Black Plastic and Everybody's.

    If you’re a Sting fan I highly recommend this pressing which is the 1/2 speed Abbey Road remaster. It sounds incredible.

    I have a question for Saxophone fans. What do you like about it?  The scales?  The The ability to play from sharp to flat?

     I find it a very boring instrument but sometimes something gets played that I truly enjoy.  I used to play sax so when I hear things that people go nuts over I just shrug.

    Very curious as it's not nearly as boring as bagpipes, lol.

    It's simple for me.  I enjoy the lower tones compared to the trumpet.  That Sonny Rollins record is great, but Dexter Gordon is my favorite, maybe even a little higher than Coltrane.

    Perfect.  Thanks!  I'll take it a step further.  Do you like it leading the band or in the background?

    Take 5 is an utter masterpiece but other things I hear just don't move me.  The range on Take 5 is what I truly like.  I don't like when people slur the scales up and down.  I find that to be lazy playing.

    That's a good question. I think people focus on the leading instruments but I do less so. What I really enjoy about jazz (on vinyl in particular) and with my setup is the clear air between instruments.  So while one might like Time Out because of the piano lead, I am just as likely to be focused on the other instruments during listening sessions.  When I listen to A Love Supreme, which is obviously very heavy sax, I spend the whole B side focused on the bass.

    Very cool TY.

    When I listen to something I try and focus on a different instrument each time and dissect the piece from a whole.  There may be just a note or two that makes a song for me, I'm that easily amused, lol.

    To me, that's the beauty of jazz, particularly small bands like trios and quartets.  You can really pick out those details. I dig the Foo Fighters, but it's a wall of guitars at the end of the day.  That's great sometimes, but not after work when I spin some vinyl and relax.

    I like the sax because it can float so easily between low and high in the mix depending on the song and how it's used and I like how it can be used in rock music like the Rolling Stones, E Street Band, and DMB without having it overpower the other instruments.  I love some jazz sax too because it can set a mood and tell a story without any words.

    Is everyone going to post actual good sax songs?

    Colin Stetson is fantastic and plays a big weird sax. He’s done some soundtrack work lately (Colour out of Space is awesome) but this is the album that got me into his music.

    Interesting question. 
    I like the versatility of saxophone music.  Great sax playing covers miles of territory, from very smooth, relaxing, warm tone sax playing by people like Stan Getz and Ben Webster (and John Coltrane's ballads), to really classy, well versed players like Sonny Rollins and Paul Desmond, to more edgy, outside-the-box players like Ornette Coleman or Sam Rivers, to force of nature players like (not that there are any quite like) John Coltrane, to full blown, highly emotive players like Marshall Allen or Albert Ayler.  The gamut these players cover is very wide.  The styles, the tones, the construction of the music... it's all vast and amazing.

    I too hit the local big box stores this morning. Bagged the Lana Del Rey and the White Album ($25 and change for the pair) at Target. Then grabbed .... Justice and Metallica at Walmart.
