Made in the EU Netherlands Capital,Universal. 4,3743DN,Baarn . I’m not sure what all this means but it’s in very small print at bottom of the back of the album. Just so we don’t go off on equipment used I played this on my Vpi Classic Anniversary with a ortofon 2m black cartridge. Didn't Hoffman do...

I would not buy anything new without checking first with Harley at Audio Empire on Albion. Quite often, if he doesn't stock the item he can order it. I don't dicker with him because his price is always better than retail.

Another thumbs up for Harley!

Was a customer (and friend) of Steve's in the 70s when Mor-tone was located on Bloor Street in Toronto. Bought my first decent equipment from Steve. Didn't see his place in Guelph after he moved. Wonder what he's doing these days.

Just over a year ago Futurist Manifesto 1974-1978 was released.....this contains 5 disks and is the complete Be Bop Deluxe library. If you like this kind of music then I would also suggest giving City Boy a listen. As for the old CNFY....David Marsden is still broadcasting on Saturday and Sunday ev...

Wow Stark thanks for the assessment - really making me re-think if its worth the hassle. In checking the link I don't see any mention of early admission for this show :( I have to say I am not keen to have to get there 2 hours early to get parking and then get jostled around in tight spaces on the ...

Didn't see much or any talk about the tonearm. A good tonearm can make a huge difference in the sound of your vinyl.

if you can, use a mixture of silica sand and bullet gun shot pellets, you will be happy. :)

Makes sense. The silica would fill in the gaps around the pellets.

I'm not promising anything, but it would be interesting if people could view all music ads, and all hardware ads, separately, without removing the current lists. What do you guys think?

Your idea makes way too much sense :D

I have a choice to get this lp in either a canadian anthem pressing or US mercury pressing, any difference in sound from those in the know?, thanks.

If you can't do a side by side comparision, the rule of thumb is that the band's original country is the way to go.

The Rory is a fathers Day gift to myself so I should wait till Sunday, and the Band is a gift for the brother in law, so I can't listen to that either. :( OK, so I finally listened to the Rory album. What a disappointment so...
