Now for something completely different. I found this in a collection of records that were gifted to me.


I could see that as an audiophile party favourite after everyone has had one too many! "Here, let me sit you down in the sweet spot and see if you can identify this sound". :lol:

Never thought of that, I must mark the spot on the record where the guy starts calling. :lol:

Walked into local V V, looking for something to read and found these 12 LPs - all mint wax. At the check-out the woman at the register joked with me that I just bought 12 used LPs for $27, which is about the price of one new LP! She was in her late teens and I think her comment shows that many young people still pay attention to vinyl... Go fig.

Just picked up:

Pat Matheny: Off ramp ( mint )
Oregon: Roots in the Sky ( mint )
Pierre Moerlen's Gong: Time is the key. ( Mint )

$30. All are Canadian pressings.

A maxi-single by Octopus was thrown in for free.

Recently I realized that I had no music on either LP or CD, by the singer that appeared live in front of more than 200 million people during his long career. Last Saturday, I found his "Beautiful Garden of Prayer", 10 inch LP, and it is glorious! I'm referring to Grammy-winning gospel singer George Beverly Shea.

One of my favourite blues albums that I own.
Took me a while / bit of a slow burn / but man-o-man, is it good.

And, the names are obviously in the incorrect order on the album cover lol .... but it wouldn't sell of course.
