    As I've started dipping my toe in, I strongly regret living amid so many hipsters. It's really freaking hard to find decent deals in the SF area these days.

    I picked up the Muddy Waters/Stones live at the checkerboard theater. It's a really interesting listen.

    We should do a vinyl trip sometime. Go hit up Montana or Dallas or something.

    there's a good show in Buena Park every month that's been going on for decades, the Greter Orange County record show. I know there's one day and one for Oct and Nov. You can try that for filling out your cravings.

    Dropped into Amoeba here in L.A. yesterday. What a zoo! Much prefer Soundstation on La Tijera. Just getting back into vinyl, so still picking up some old faves:[​IMG]

    Last week was Tangerine Dream week. I spent way too much damn money on each LP, I need better self control. Pressing quality ranges from OK to pretty shitty but the mastering is great.

    Picked these up today

    IMG_1091.jpg
    This is an original pressing of Aja AB 1006 with the B crossed out in the runout, replaced with A. From what I've read though it's still one of the good ones. Cleaned it up, still a fair amount of pops and clicks but, WOW, sounds great!

    Just listened to this Ray Charles album, wasn't familiar with it. IMHUMBLEO, HORRIBLE. He's singing half the time in a falsetto. And the mix is bizarre, rolls off hard at about 80Hz, where there's a slight hump, then huge dip until around 2K as best I can tell. Could this have a different curve than the RIAA? I don't know much about that, care to educate anyone?

    Yes, Amoeba is a zoo, but if you want to see the exotic animals, the zoo is where you go.

    Seattle is a great record-hunting town. Portland, a little less so.

    I love Radiohead/Thom Yorke on vinyl. Great find.

    Thom Yorke vinyl is typically amazing sounding...don't know how he keeps putting out consistent high quality like that.

    Got my copy of the 45rpm in the mail today. I've heard this album a million times....never like this. A MUST BUY!!
    In fact, it was so good, I just bought 2 backup copies to keep just now!

    I recently picked this up with Jeff Buckley's Grace on 45s. Wow. Required for every player. Even sounds great on cheap turntables.
