I see you guys are still buying CDs. I haven't bought one since Tidal launched about 2 years ago. I used to buy the CD, then if I liked it, I would get the vinyl copy.

Now with Tidal, no need for CDs anymore.

Never thought I would ever do this, but Tidal is da bomb!!!

Yeah, still listening to CD’s, just found a VG+ of Captain Beyond, their first album and also bought the CD of the group UK, their self-titled release (UK). I am awaiting the pre-order of David Gilmore's "Live at Pompeii" Boxed CD/BluRay set, that will be sweet as honey...Several others I will list as they come in. Music is wonderfully amazing.

Enjoy the Music (while you still can)

Cheers

My modest line-up:

(Things I don't need but have: NIB Arcam rHead headphone amp and a NIB Audiolab M-DAC Mini Headphone Amp/DAC) Waiting, (again), for my ProAc Tablette Tens...I'm keeping this pair.

CDs' - New. $16.00 including shipping from a UK-based ebay powerseller. The Rudy Van Gelder remaster is something of a revelation. Truly remarkable sonics when you consider that all the songs on this compilation were recorded in the late '50s and early '60s. It's like having a piano trio in my Music room. Incredible!

I'm new to town so I've been checking out the local haunts for the never-ending search for new & used vinyl. There aren't many used record stores for a city of Albuquerque's size but several stores have a presence at booths in various antique malls around town. Found a few real bargains in the past several weeks.

Just $4.50 for this mono Japanese pressing. Jaye P. Morgan is probably better known to most USAM members for her off-color antics as a panelist on The Gong Show in the '70s'. But she was a helluva singer too.

This one remastered for stereo by RVG in '65.

Although it would be nice to have the original LPs' from the 2 reissues, I figured that if I ever found them in above average condition they would cost a small fortune. So I'm happy to have discovered these at a fair price. All 5 LPs' appear to be in VG+ to NM condition but that will be determined when "tha needle hits tha record". $12.00 for each double LP set and $4.00 for Down Home Piano.

$27.98 shipped. These Steve Hoffman remasters are worth every penny. Ime they are more consistently satisfying than many MFSL titles.

I'm not waiting for Santa. Went into a local record store yesterday and traded 6 CDs' from my collection for 3 used CDs':

Mercury Rev ~ All Is Dream
Mercury Rev ~ The Secret Migration
Brian Jonestown Massacre ~ ...And This Is Our Music

And then I shelled out $35.00 for 2 sealed BJM British imports:

Methodrone
Bravery, Repetition and Noise

Mose and his trio performed, by request, at our college back in the late 60s. Nice to know he is getting known again. Will have to pick this one up. But, I have many of his records on contemporary vinyl so perhaps all I need is one of those ultrasonic record cleaners?

I've been a Mose Allison fan since I was a kid. When I was growing up in Kansas City there was an FM Jazz DJ that lived down the street from us. He and his wife were cocktail hour compadres with my parents and he used to give our family a lot of promo LPs. So I was introduced to jazz at a very young age: Count Basie, Miles, Coltrane, Sarah Vaughn, Brubeck et al. And with his distinctive voice and piano style Mose is one of those artists that made an impression on me that would last a lifetime.

I'm thinking about buying an ultrasonic RCM as well. Check out ebay; there are many sellers that sell all of the pieces that you'll need to customize your needs. You'll save $$$ over buying one from a manufacturer because they're just putting the various pieces together too and then jacking the prices.

This was. But it was mostly to have the SACD of 4. DCT's recollections are nice but not essential. I'd have rather had a more Musician literate re-appraisal about what makes that Music timeless. And about as hard to cover as Steely Dan ever was. (YMMSVH is their Rikki). If I hear a band play almost anything else by them and do it right, that cover band has my attention. The only bands that ever did it had me in it....lol.....

I just bought the SACD of the Kooper etc. band. Very good sound and lots of humor - you can hear the Dylan session - influences.

We almost wore out CIFTTM. When a bunch of us heard the next album with DC-T singing, one of us took the disk off the player and scaled it out the window. No one gave them stick. Blame it on Clive Davis.

Reminds me of when Gabriel left Genesis and the drummer started singing. Popular music for popular people.

An SACD of Beet's 9th, a double layer/5.1 of John Mayer's Room for Squares, and an HD master of Van Halen II.
The winnah, as Curtis Stone says it, was Van Halen.

There should be a rating system for recording quality. Or IS there already? :shock:
