    US and UK members may already have seen this pic on the news; a house (holiday home?) on the shores of Lake Ontario.

    A bit different from your area Mr D!
  3. Expensive pedals

    24 February 2017 - 04:59 PM

    Andertons are on a bit of a pedal kick (geddit?) at the moment and stocking a mouth-watering selection.....
    Trouble is, they cost lots and these days even a grand or three won't get you that many.....
    I hadn't heard of these Vemuram ones - brass cases and very expensive!

    @Dub - are these more TS-based designs do you think?

  5. Selling my vinyl.

    03 February 2017 - 07:28 PM

    Mind if I go on a bit?

    I am 63 this year, unemployed and with a tiny pension. I need extra cash to get by and have started to sell my (about 2000? items) vinyl LP collection on the net, so far mostly on discogs.
    I don't regret this as I've played and loved listening to 'em all in the past - they were all bought for a reason - and now much of it is duplicated on CD.

    So far and for awhile yet I am selling items which I won't miss; variety is the spice of life and of a good record collection, and that variety is what's going first - I don't really need or even listen to some of it.
    In days gone by I might buy an LP for a single track, or because it was the new one by a favourite artist and I had to have every record they put out, or (most important) because I liked the cover....how many albums did I buy because of that?

    Am re-auditioning all the LPs I put up for sale so I can grade them - near mint, very good plus, etc; which can be difficult - how often did you buy a completely noise-and-click-free LP? You know, why did they invent the CD?

    But what comes over is how bloody good it still sounds...and then you turn it up...and think "no, can't sell this" and it goes back in the rack.
    For example:
    Little Walter Vol 2 - I have the tracks on CD but on vinyl, no contest.
    Pharoah Sanders "Black Unity", OMG! I'd forgotten.... a keeper.
    I have 3 versions of "The Cry Of Love" so one is for sale but what a lovely, warm-sounding record it is. "Night Bird Flying" is one of Jimi's finest and well-taken studio tracks IMO.

    OTOH "Kiss The Sky" is (IMO) a reprehensible compilation from the Alan Douglas years which is an early "Digital Master Mix" (8-bit?) and it sounds like he used an Aphex Aural Exciter. Tsk! No longer need to hang on to that one.

    Selling some Segovia too - "3 Centuries of the Guitar" is the Maestro at the top of his very considerable game - truly awesome and untouchable, though I must confess I had played it so few times I didn't know any of it when I auditioned it earlier today.
    Not quite my thing though I did actually see him play live, and listening to this brings home what a virtuoso he was.

    I have an original Swan Song gatefold of "Presence" in vgc and was amazed how much it's worth. Also have the CD remaster, so....
    And still have 10 Leo Kottke LPs...TEN! Time to rationalise this lot but they ain't worth much.....stunning playing though.

    Then there's the good stuff I don't want to sell....yet....which I'm not going to mention!

    Vinyl....my life in records....brought me the music in the first place.

    Hi GMac
    Many thanks for the comment - our "Stormy Monday" starts like the T-Bone version but then our singer insisted on the Allmans chords....I didn't argue!

    Hey, jdgm! I wanted to thank you for the tip off on Allan Holdsworth with Soft Machine and Jean Luc Ponty. I can't wait to get both of those albums on iTunes. Also, nice job on Stormy Monday! I like the Allman's version. Have you heard T-Bone Walker's or Bobby "Blue" Bland's? Check 'em out! Hope you're well and happy in "anywhere"! Peace!
