I'm a proud owner of that Can reissue. I should give it yet another listen Wink

It's been a while since I posted here, so I'm sorry for the long post Tongue

Another great album from Black Mountain. I love this cover too Cool


I finally bought this Yes classic album Thumbs Up


I also have my double LP with coaster now Tongue Great album with great sound quality, like The Light.


A favourite from 2014 that I only bought now. It's a fantastic modern Krautrock album Thumbs Up


A new Spanish electronic solo project that reminds of Neuronium's 80's output, being also uneven but it has a nice homemade feeling to it Tongue


My favourite Portuguese album of 2016, so far. It has a great sunny vibe with plenty of Krautrock influences (Ashra or Harmonia come to mind) and a modern electronic approach Wink

Early Can is tough to find for sure......They get scooped up quickly, but most are probably not in decent shape.....I like the new ones since they are remastered from the original tapes.

I was very fortunate to have come across this TM at a fair in the late-90's for 20 bucks. It is in VG shape, but far from pristine. I got an original UA Future Days which had a skip in it, I bought another which side 1 was slightly off centre (? Dunno how that happens) then I bought a brand spanking new version with the UA label and it's fantastic !!
Most of the other Can albums I bought are early pressings in excellent condition. They weren't too difficult to come by here in the 90's. I got sick of seeing Flow Motion and Out Of Reach cropping up often.

For what it is worth, this RTI pressing is magical....Kevin Gray mastered it for Rhino Records, reissued by Warner Bros. My original copy is now in safe keeping.

The dynamics are special, the electronic bass/drums are sweet...Vocals are well, its Prince, pretty nice!

^ I got the old United Artists 'Envelope' cover with a back shot of Damo and Jaki. It has a decent sound.

If you enjoy Can and vinyl (duhhh) then you must get these reissues by Spoon/Mute, they are all worth every penny spent. The remix/remaster from original tapes is amazing, the pressing quality is numero uno!!!

Brilliant!

Not a bad vinyl, this one pressed in Germany. The lead-in area is pretty scratchy, after that is gets pretty quiet.

I've been painfully spinning some of the Jazz LP's I bought last year, they seemed OK with my previous turntable but with my current one it's easy to notice how bad they sound: unknown low quality sources and pressing by questionable "audiophile" labels Dead I want to get rid of them, especially since Jazz is a genre where the quality is crucial to enjoy it, probably more than Rock music Ermm

^ Love APP's Pyramid album - my favourite
There was a short-lived label in the late-70's called Affinity, later Charley. They released things like National Health, Daevid Allen etc. Also the 'Dawn' label, with bands like Fruupp and Gravy Train. All the vinyl I have of them is black , but a deep burgundy colour when held up to the light. They all sound fine.

^ I bought it because it was in pristine condition, looks like it was played less than 10x.

^^ I find that APP album many times but still don't have it, despite being a great album. There's always something more difficult to find.

The Malicorne album has a cool cover. How's the one with the eye and the stairs on the last picture? The cover is intriguing Cool

Nice eclectic haul Anaon.......Yesterday the wife and I went to antique stores, one had a ton of vinyl displays. Will post pics later but I found:

Asia and Asia Alpha, I got these because they were the Quiex II pressings, these can be hit or miss on sound. They are special vinyl mix that does not use the traditional black carbon but a black dye, you should be able to see thru the vinyl if held up to light. 

Uli Jon Roth~Beyond the Astral Skies
Phil Collins~Hello I Must Be Going
Alan Parsons Project~Pyramid

I once bought that Malicorne album for a few bucks but the inside gatefold spread was so mildew-ridden that it was practically a living and breathing entity, so I ditched it. All I recall was it reminded me of Gryphon (the krumhorns).
