      Picked this up this morning.... One of my favorite albums ever. It's a first pressing, and it still has the post cards that it came with! Picked it up for only $90 bucks.

      I've got a bunch of high end vintage audio gear I'm clearing out, restored Marantz 4270 - better than new condition; Pioneer SX-5590, 8/10; Concept 16.5, 8/10 cosmetically - 10/10 function. Various high end vintage speakers: Rectilinear Research, AR, Kenwood, Infinity, McIntosh, Leslie 251. PM me for details, clearing out to finance home theater upgrade.

      Random conversation with one of my professors about music, he said he had about 100 albums in storage for 15 years. He and his wife were trying to get rid of everything in their storage unit and told me I could have them if I could get them out!!

      I prefer 180g vinyl, but my equipment really makes up for it, sometimes a little too much and becomes very revealing of how poorly the pressing/recording is.

      Such a large percentage of new vinyl is pressed on 180g that I'd say about half my new records are 180g (so bout 25)

      ^nice, we tried unsuccessfully to get cheap tickets in Milwaukee the other night fort the gfs birthday. so we got drunk and sat in the hot tub. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      This weekend in Milwaukee I was on a mission and I failed. I was trying to get the "Hustler: by Simian Mobile Disco but, I couldn't find the record anywhere. I should have just gone to Chicago and went to Gramaphone - they never disappoint.

      "
      I'm a hustler baby
      That's what my daddy's made me
      Yeah I'm a hustler baby
      That's what my daddy's made me
      I'm a hustler baby
      That's what my daddy's made me
      Yeah I'm a hustler baby
      That's what my daddy's made me
      If I had the money to go to a record store
      I would
      I I would
      If I had the money to go to a record store
      I would
      I I would
      Go to the record store
      Go to the record store
      Go to the record store
      Put records in my clothes
      Go to the record store
      Go to the record store
      Go to the record store
      Pass me back man
      Go to a record store
      And put it in my clothes and
      Walk past that record man
      Got to have the sticky hands
      You ass is broke
      You ass is broke
      Like me
      Like me
      Go to that record store
      Steal some record man
      Go to that record store
      Steal some records man
      I'm telling you I'm broke
      I'm telling you I'm broke
      But I'm survivor than you that I can cope
      Yeah I'm a hustler baby
      That's what my daddy's made me
      Yeah I'm a hustler baby
      That's what my daddy's made me
      Yeah I'm a hustler baby
      That's what my daddy's made me
      Yeah I'm a hustler baby
      That's what my daddy's made me
      It's 8 o' clock
      And I got nothing to do
      Can't go to the club
      So I guess I go to the record store
      Visit my record man
      With my sticky hands
      Walk out that record door
      Put your records in my clothes
      The records in my clothes
      What the **** is you gonna do
      What the **** is you gonna do
      About it
      Nothing
      "
      So instead I found a couple little things to tide me over.
      First up I have Piper Road Spring Band - Live
      this is a live album from material recorded in the fall of 1979 and is a pretty rare record from a historic WI bluegrass band. My girl and I have seen this band paly about a dozen times so we were both rpetty excited about this score.

      Buddy Miles Express - Booger Bear
      the drummer for Jimi Hendrix' Band of Gypsy's Buddy Miles is a pretty talented guy and this is the second album of his I have found recently.

      I also picked up The Dead 60's - Riot Radio b/w New Town Disaster 7"

      A pair of Dangermouse remixes on 7":
      Super Furry Animals - Lazerbeam & Bright Eyes - Easy/Lucky/Free
      (no image available online)
      and finally I picked up LCD SOundsystem - Bye Bye Bayou 12"

      Bought a couple records at a show this past week. Brother Ali vinyl is white, Freeway is a marbley green. Good deal for new records, $15 for vinyl and a download card...[IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I haven't bought too much lately, as I've realized just how out of hand my spending had gotten on them.

      I may only have about 40 records, but I only had about 15 at the start of the year.

      No, you're not the only one. I get mine from:
      http://www.musicdirect.com
      I b1tched on getting the last Portishead on vinyl...too impatient, and it didn't sound close enough to the older stuff for me to drop $30-$70, or whatever that limited ed. box was going for.
      So all this vinyl and no tube love? You guys are missin' out.
