    Just picked this up again on MFSL gold disc for the Wadia. Excellent! One of the most significant blues albums of the past 30 years.

    Eric Gale - Multiplication
    1978, Columbia - JC 34938, LP

    If you can get by the dragging opening cut "OH! Mary Don't You Weep" without weeping, this opens up into a fine example of late-70's west coast jazz.

    The Police - Ghost In the Machine
    1981, A&M SP 3730, LP

    I found this in the record vault this morning, unopened, and thought "what the hell?" I've never been a big Sting fan, so I'm clueless why this was purchased. Big surprise - excellent sound quality and production! Virgin vinyl, spindle hole so tight I almost need KY. :p

    Roomful of Blues - The 1st Album
    2002, Hyena Records TMF 9307, CD

    Five stars by any standard with superb sound quality and production in this remastered reissue. Duke Robillard fronting one of the very best blues/swing groups ever. Highly recommended.

    Robert Jr. Lockwood - Does 12

    An absolutely captivating blues album, with 12-string electric guitar lead. Born in 1915, Robert was still performing live through 2004, but haven't seen much since (or an obit). 31 year old vinyl, still sounding mint..... wow!

    Man or Astro-man? Destroy All Astromen

    If you like your surf guitar with a sci-fi slant, this is the band for you. This album may be 12 years young, but is IMO the single best surf guitar album ever recorded with the only competition coming from their first album Is it Man or Astro-man?.

    Now before all you Dick Dale fanatics chase me down with buckets of hot tar and torches, give 'em a listen. All instrumental with random samplings of
    sci-fi clips from the '50's and '60's. Unbelievable musicianship and energy -- and catchy as all hell. Coco the Electronic Monkey Wizard, Birdstuff, and the rest of the boys shant disappoint.

    Quite an impressive discography spanning rougly a decade until their permanent hiatus about 4 years back. Of interesting note, their first five albums (and numerous EP's) were released only on vinyl. They're the sole reason I had a record player as a teenager. When they eventually started releasing their albums on CD after switching labels to Touch and Go, it was considered to be a sell-out of gargantuan proportions.

    Their shows are still the benchmark from which I compare all others. Legendary.

    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore

    Pete Haycock - Guitar and Son
    1988, IRS/No Speak 42100, LP

    The brilliant lead guitarist for one of my favorites, The Climax Blues Band, goes solo with a largely instrumental offering of predominantly original titles. Good stuff!

    A Toolbox Christmas, Woody Phillips, Gourd Music 1996

    "Your favorite carols performed on your favorite hand and power tools...from the workshop of Woody Phillips, glorious holiday sounds ascend from the sawdust to the heavens..."
    Actually, he does use a few proper instruments as well. A truly festive piece!

    I just cracked open the new Rolling Stone, only to discover we lost Robert in late November at age 91. Buddy Guy is quoted in the RS obit as saying "we all learned from this guy, he was just the best. A guy like Robert comes along once in a lifetime."

    RIP Robert. Your contribution to the blues is immortal.

    Albert King - Born Under A Bad Sign
    1967, Atlantic 577/MFSL UltraDisc II, CD

    Stellar sound quality! I've had this CD for a number of years (now OOP from MFSL) and never thought it remarkable--until I got a player that could showcase it. I'm sold on the MFSL remastered gold discs now.

    Sweet! yeah it's to bad MFSL doesn't release many remastered gold discs anymore. sometimes they go for a premium on Ebay.. but in some cases are worth every penny. :D

    Al,

    Yeah, they're remarkable. The Sonny Terry & Brownie McGee MFSL sounds much better than my original vinyl version--and, it's in fantastic shape.

    Freddie King - (1934-1976)
    1990, Polygram, CD

    My favorite Freddie King album, rivaled only by the Shelter recordings, and featuring his then junked-out pupil EC with one of his finest blues efforts as well. The Wadia, once again, outshines my original LP in clarity, presence and SLAM. Wow!

    Dave Mason - The Best of Dave Mason
    1974, Blue Thumb - BTS 6013, LP

    I knew I took care of my records for a reason. A quick spin on the VTI 16.5 and this 32 year old vinyl has spectacular sound quality. Great mix of live and studio work, mastered to perfection. Not to be confused with the later Columbia release by the same name, this was nearly a re-release of "Alone Together". Mason had already parted company over artistic differences (pronounced "money") and this was IMO a retaliation by Blue Thumb. Still a marvelous collection and somewhat of a rarity.

    It's CHRISTMAS time and I'm listening to CHRISTMAS music!

    John Williams et:al - Home Alone: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack



    I'm not generally a soundtrack fan...but this one is just cool. It's a stupid movie that I love and I love the soundtrack. The movie is a new Christmas classic IMO.



    The Boston Pops Orchestra (Arthur Fiedler, conductor) - White Christmas


    Deutsche Grammophon[419414]

    A mix of classical and contemporary Christmas Music. This is about as mainstream Christmas music as it gets.



    The Carpenters - Christmas Portrait



    This MUST be played every Christmas as far as I'm concerned. What a voice Karen Carpenter had.


    I have a huge stack of CHRISTMAS music to go through.... HO HO HO!

    Led Zeppelin - In Through the Out Door
    Swan Song, LP

    I found this in the vault, still in the shrink wrap. Another mystery. Pretty uneven performances punctuated by far too many synth effects and Plant sounding like he's singing in a metal trash can in the next room on most cuts. "I'm Gonna Crawl" and "Fool in the Rain" were the standouts for me.

    Johnny Cash's "American IV-When the Man Comes Around"

    This is a lot better than I was expecting. He does covers of some cool songs that most wouldn't affiliate with Cash . The one everyone has heard is the cover of Trent Reznor's(NIN) "Hurt". Also does a duet with Fiona Apple of Simon and Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water", which I liked. Sounds better on the SDAs than the LSis.
