Got lucky at the salvation army and amassed around 40  mint  columbia masterworks, 6 eye, london FFRR (england) , rca shaded dog, 1947 live perfomance of Satchmo ('51 stereo long play pressing) of some of the great performances by ormandy, bernstein, szell...   nutcracker suite, beethoven "the complete symphonies 7 album set) etc etc......    I am quite chuffed at my "haul"... 60 albums and 25 cds in total over my  2 weeks of scouring the SA and Goodwills and Ywca ALL for the princely sum of around 75 bucks......   not too bad.. I will be enjoying them all....

Ok, I have received and cleaned all my birthday present vinyl:

Miles Davis, Kind Of Blue, 45 RPM, Numbered etc. 2 LPs.  Just beautiful!

Mystic Moods Orchestra
, Another Stormy Night, 180g LP.  Great sound for a Guilty Pleasure.

The Manabu Ohishi Trio, Half Step, 180g LP. Jazz, well recorded $5.

Elvira, 2 Big Pumpkins/13 Nights of Halloween, 45rpm 7" Vinyl (Purple Vinyl) 'Nuff Said?

Blood, Sweat & Tears, 3 180g LP.

Nickel Creek, This Side, 150g 2LPs.

Paul Simon, Paul Simon, 180g LP, Sony Legacy (Columbia).  The bass will knock you over, remastered and bass boosted.

Paul Simon, Still Crazy After All These Years, 180g LP, Sony Legacy, same as above but the bass is better balanced.

Jimi Hendrix, 45 RPM 7" (name coming when I can make it upstairs).   Haven't listened yet.

Ghostbusters Soundtrack, 180g LP.

Oddly, the last two are not on the invoice on line.

Coheed and Cambria's latest in "tour" edition colored vinyl... 1000 made and only sold at the concert.. Not being a colored vinyl fan, it will be interesting to compare it to the black "audiophile" (their words) edition... I have always been told that colored vinyl while cool and everything, doesnt sound as good...
we shall see...

Hope you have the only "real" BS&T album, Child Is Father To The Man. It was great the way Dick Halligan stepped right up to the organ after Kooper went his way but Clayton-Thomas? Whenever I hear him I'm reminded of the "Murph and the Magic Tones" sequence in The Blues Brothers.

Bill, I bought that decades ago.  It never really appealed to me.  I'm much more a David Clayton-Thomas fan. 

My favorite piece by them is a Jazz piece, Blues - Part II.  It is about 12 minutes long.  Then on BS&T 3 I really like 40,000 Headmen and Lucretia McEvil.  I'm a big fan of album cuts.

Hi there,

The last CD's I bought were Valerie June - Pushin' against a stone and Lizz Wright - Freedom & Surrender. I saw Lizz live at Ronnie Scott's in London a few weeks ago. Don't miss her if you have a chance to hear her live. She's a brilliant singer.

Michael

Edit: Forgot to mention that I also bought Robert Johnson's recordings and all of John Mayer's CDs.

Here's a +1 for The Zombies....I've been a fan of them for years, but was recently thrilled to see them perform the entire "Odyssey and Oracle" album live at Benaroya Hall in Seattle - and with all the original band members present.  The performance was very good, and I picked up a new re-issue of "Odyssey and Oracle" on vinyl, as well as their latest release on CD (no vinyl available, at least yet).

I was surprised that it appeared they didn't sell out the place, but the people in attendance were definitely fans - many of them, I think, from back when the album first hit the streets...if you had a pie chart of the colors people were wearing that night, the top three would have definitely included 'tie-die.'
