    Parliament -Tear the Roof Off 1974-1980





    A 3 lp Simply Vinyl set of their best stuff, including live versions. Great sound quality, very quiet and a good transfer, IMO. I always use "Aqua Boogie" as one of the songs I'll play for people who haven't heard SDA's.

Some have said the production is a bit stripped down and sparse, I would agree (a good thing). It’s certainly a bit more upbeat and aggressive than her last release “The Bee Keeper”. In the grand scheme of Tori, you can’t mistake it for being her but at the same time it’s a bit gentler than earlier angst driven stuff.

    If you are a casual fan or hardcore fan I recommend it. A solid 3.5 out of 5 IMO.

    It's amazing how on a lesser rig or the radio, the dogs sound like dogs. On a better rig you realize the dogs sounds are instruments and electronically done.

    Another great SDA showcase.

    Epic Records 1970 PE 30267 Really good recording.


    This is one of my all time favorite LPs, it is a complete album. It has a little bit of everything in it and tells a story.

    Awesome SDA showcase.

    just opened a sealed pressing of The Lonesome Jubilee by John Mellencamp

    Ooooo I never had this on CD... but a friend gave me this sealed vinyl and i'm digging it hard. Wow.. this has got to be his at least 2nd or 3rd top album. It really rocks and captures him at the height of his career.

    most excellent recording.

    vinyl lovers, get yourself a sealed copy and sit back and rock out and enjoy.

    Sinead O'Connor - The Lion & The Cobra



    Rummaging thru the audio closet and I uncovered this gem. Can't believe I overlooked this cd for so many years. Great stuff!

    If you like one song by THs then this collection of 33 songs is a must. Great notes too for a CD. Very well engineered.

    Default Fleetwood Mac - Rumours - DVD Audio

    there isn't really anything else to say about this great album, but that it's even better on DVD-Audio. The extra space afforded on a dvd format really helps the dynamics to open up and sound's excellent.

    Sinead Lohan - No Mermaid

    There are some catchy tunes on here. A slight cross between Sinead O'connor and Dolores O'Riordan from the Cranberries. Nothing in particular stands out, but some great beats and nice pop sensibility. Sounds good on SDA's and while the recording isn't stellar there's enough quality to make it enjoyable. The drums are electronic. Sort of reminds of late "80s new wave music.

    Melissa Ferrick is touring with Ani Difranco so I wanted to get familiar with her stuff.

    This is an amazing CD:

    Bob James - Foxie - 1983 on vinyl. Not the best album but I liked the album art and for $.50 it was worth it.

    I was just listening to Henry Rollins... Under the Bridge. I have heard of drums not being life like in speakers. I used to agree. I just had the crap scared out of me. I had it at a moderate level, and the drummer hit the snare with a technique where the stick hits the rim, and the snare at the same time. It made me jump! Did I mention I am so Happy! Is jazz at the Pawn shop similar to this? If it is I must have.
    Please. Please contact me a ben62670 @ yahoo.com. Make sure to include who you are, and you are from Polk so I don't delete your email. Also I am now physically unable to work on any projects. If you need help let these guys know. There are many people who will help if you let them know where you are.
    Thanks
    Ben
