Also Catcher!!

Congrats on the new cartridge. I am sure that turntable of yours is singing pretty clear now.
The worst is hearing any kind of 'popping' or small crackling sounds when trying to concentrate on an album your listening to. ;)

So what's the make and model on that sucker? :)

My older vinyl has some surface noise but that is perfectly fine...old things creek and crack on occasion
But I am meticulous on cleaning my vinyl and needle, I have 30yr old vinyl that has no surface noise. Once the music starts you don't hear any tics or pops..In between songs who cares....

Cartridge is an Audio Technica ATOC9ML/II moving coil cartridge. The ML stands for Micro-Line, that shape mimics the shape of the cutter head used to create the master stamper, so it digs deep and pulls out much more detail. Shibata and Line Contact are other terms to describe that cut of diamond.

Its amazing how fantastic some of these old recordings are, just sitting and hearing what is going on, its crazy good. These engineers back in the day really studied their craft and perfected mic placement in recording studios. Versus now adays "just put a whole bunch of mics in the room since we have endless tracks with digital recording..."

Oh well, maybe some can make it work but nothing sounds as good as some of these old recordings. The emotion of Louis's face is so present on this recording, I can see it in the grooves

Vinyl on my analog friends!

OK, this is kind of weird, but here goes.

For my birthday, my wife's sister and her husband sent me an LP in the mail.  It wasn't on my wish list, and I don't even know if they are fans of the artist or not (neither of them are really music fans at all, to be honest), it was a total surprise.  The LP in question was "Lazaretto", the new album by Jack White (formerly of White Stripes).   I have no real knowledge of his music in any of his various bands, but I was aware of who he is and I may have heard a White Stripes song or two in the past.  So I never dreamed I'd ever get this album, least of all on vinyl.

Now the weirder part.  Tonight, I put it on, and all I heard was a weird looping noise in a locked groove at the beginning of side 1.  So I figured ok, a defective record.  I'll just skip past that part and pretend that wasn't there.  So I did, and about a minute later it happened again.   So I dropped the needle much farther into the side and watched.  And lo and behold, the record was running backwards!  I mean, it was spinning the right way, but the grooves were running out from the center to the edge rather than vice versa as it has been on every other record I've seen.  I admit to being a little creeped out by this.  Thousands of records over 40+ years and I... I... I need to sit down.

Doesn't seem natural, and I'm not sure it sounded that great.  What's up with that?

This is the best (sort of) thing I have read about a record since hearing about one that was half ITCOTCK and half Status Quo (or one labelled Bruce Springsteen when it was supposed to be Aerosmith. Satanic Messages (backward masking) notwithstanding - the fun you could have with these and this record on the gullible and suggestible.

Do not get rid of this record! Wonder what the digital medium sounds like...

An interesting pressing fault. Tweet White and see what he says.

Lazaretto is a special album that Jack did with many, many hidden tid bits. Side 1 plays from inside out, you start the needle at the very inside groove. The locked groove, which is a common thing, is actually on the outside edge to prevent the needle from falling off the edge.
Side 2 has a double groove for the first song, one is an acoustic start, the other groove is a full set...both grooves then lead into one groove to finish out the song...very cool.

Also did you notice the hologram as the record spins of the angels? A page or two back here I posted a link to his video introducing the album features. Here is my post.....

Enjoy the album, I am not a listener of his music, I do like Side 2 best though

Here is a YT of the stuff on the vinyl....also this album was recorded to tape and all analog mastering. I will say the sound quality is very good, nice and warm with ZERO compression! Wish other artists would do this.

Anyhow its a cool album, good sound.

Its not a pressing fault......everything on the album was done on purpose.
This release charted the highest vinyl release of the year a couple weeks ago..I think it was something like 50,000 units on vinyl...I think

Pretty cool!

Thanks for clearing that up.  Wasn't aware of the double groove on side two, but I have noticed that the record just flat out looks different.  The sleeve talks about the hologram, but maybe my lighting wasn't too good because I couldn't see it.

I think I may have read your old post when you talked about it before, but it had slipped my mind.  When I wrote my post last night, I had a vague memory of something.   Story of my life after 40... vague memories of things all day long.

So it seems like a cool album to have after all.  I wonder if my sister in law was aware of all this when she got it for me.

Yes it looks different because there is no "lip" on the outer edge due to the outside locked groove, so it is a flat record. Also one side is a flat black matte finish to give it that old 78rpm looking finish.

One thing I have not done is play the tracks that lie in the label...My tone arm will not go that far, and you are playing the tracks thru the paper label, not too keen on doing that with my cartridge...what I understand its just some noise anyway...

I think it is a cool album to have in a collection.

I agree...demand and supply, business 101..If they demand it then charge more! Look at all analog gear prices, have gone up at least 25% over the past 5yrs. You could buy Nagaoka cartridges cheap, the top end MP-500 used to be about US$450, now it runs close to $600.

There are some good buys out there, gotta look though and as you know you get what you pay for. Especially these new issues on vinyl, so many people are demanding more mastering from analog tape, and if they do it does cost more, but really not much, sounds glorious when done right though.

It can work, I tried it on a very dirty $1 purchase yard sale find. It takes too long and I don't have the patience. But it did pull out all the gunk and grime in the grooves. The "glue disc" had all the gunk stuck to it..
What I actually prefer on super dirty yard sale finds is using Scrubbing Bubbles and a soft paint pad, scrub away and rinse it well. Leaves the LP squeaky clean......

I remember you describing the characteristics and unique attributes of that record. I found that incredibly fascinating.
Pretty amazing stuff. Just too bad the music isn't Marillion quality.

And that is how you groove those lines to perfection and that what separates the men from the boys in quality music listening. Well done.
