I converted Tubular Bells and after the like 50 minutes of recording and converting to mp3 I just realized that I recorded it too quietly.

Indeed I am. I have to do it manually when it cuts to the next track because the auto-separator function doesn't work.

What do you mean by that? Ermm

What I should have said is the good tracks don't seem to get enough praise as they should. As an overall thing the album is pretty basic, but Again it could be held with higher acclaim than it does in some places.

Currently I'm going through Relayer and let me just say that it's a breeze to just sit back and let my computer convert it without any of my physical input when it's playing Gates. And that's accompanied with the music as well.

Famous Last Words is a good album, period. Crazy is one of my fave 'tramp songs, and most of side 2 is very good - My Kind Of Lady and the last 2 tracks especially. Raining Again and Old Brown Shoes are my least favourites. Solid 3 star album. BTW, I have a very neat Czech pressing some German friends of ours brought me when they visited years ago.

I have a worn out copy of Famous Last Words... it was the only album I liked from my father's collection, long before I started collecting myself.

Looking forward to some interesting releases, like he says, stuff that may have never been released on vinyl or very limited runs. Maybe IR will look into prog rock albums from the 90's that only got CD released, or stuff from the 70's that was never reissued.

^ I've been patient so far, I think I can wait more, that sounds troublesome... besides, if an official distributor can't get me one, where would I get one without spending a lot more?
I'll see if my Technics is already fixed in the meantime.

It looks like I'll have to wait even more: they told me there isn't a single TT of that model right now, since it sold really well... I'll have to wait for the factory to make a new one Confused

Sounds silly.......Pick another model even if a bit nicer and tell them you want for same price. or get your money back and buy online from another source.

These guys offer a 6yr guarantee

^ I went to the store yesterday and asked about the order and I'm glad I did: there was some confusion with the ordering process because two employees handled it. I'm waiting for a confirmation, I hope they won't forget about it too Confused

Not that CNN is all that, but nice article preparing for Vinyl Record Day, the unofficial holiday which I think is loosely based on Edison's creation of the phonograph. I am sure there will be more articles in the next 24 hours.......Spin some vinyl on Aug 12, 2015!
