>> Kraftwerk "The Man Machine"
>> The best of ABBA
Hai Studiomaster,

Both are my fav too. In fact my Best of ABBA-I LP is missing as it got mixed up with my friend's LPs while I returned them to him. Hence am hunting for another copy, hope I may find it at Chennai Moore Market.

Thanks,

N Murali

Congrats on your cool find.

Just a note to say - and you may know this already - that picture disks are not really meant to be played, as the manufacturing process makes them deteriorate severely in sound quality after two or three playings.

Hai Anil,

Exactly the same, I missed this LP when I had returned my friends, got mixed up in that. I have seen a couple of the same album at Chennai Moore Market. But I only wish that it must be of the same condition (near mint), which I had missed.

Thanks,

N Murali.

I have this Abba album.Very nice songs. It looks ok without any scratches but having lots of pops and crackles. It seems it needs another wet cleaning.

Hai Anil kumar,

Giorgio Moroder is my fav too. His "Here to Eternity" is way ahead of the times. Nice Rhythm, and good use of Keyboards and backup vocals. Pl also listen to his "Day Knights in white satin". I am hunting for his "Midnight Express" and "Cat People" LPs. Both are OST from the Movies of the same name. I have seen the movie Cat People - very engrosssing Background score by Giorgio Moroder.

Thanks,

N Murali.

Body lives in California but the heart resides in
Picked up two more records today as I went to a local audio dealer for some new belts for my turntable. Seems like the old belts had developed cracks which was not keeping the tension in the belts intact.

Peter Gabriel Pasison on Classic Records 200g 2LP


Nusrat is absolutely STUNNING on the "Passion" cut.

Also picked up Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot 180g LP (Haven't heard it yet as of this post)



Also, on a side note, you guys should try and pick up the heavier 180g or 200g LPs if you buy new ones. They sound leagues beyond any CD, SACD, DVD-A discs I have heard. Seriously, I absolutely LOVE vinyl! The sound is so unpredictable, almost like real life.

also light weight vinyls tend to warp easily heavy records are durable. I have around 700 to 800 records kept parpendicularly straight. Old Saigal, Rafi, Lata, Mukesh vinyl used to come in heavy format. with thick paper album cover (Album cover artists name used to be printed on backside) nowadays no one cares. Myriad's Abhimaan LP is good example

Welcome to the vinyl world. This is one hobby which has everything, music (ofcourse), science of sound reproduction, Analogue sound, Album cover art, nostalgia, and that vinyl sound. I listen to them on old pioneer three in one system which my granddad brought from Muscat. it is 20 to 25 years old still original belts and most importantly sweet sound.

Hi all
Golden Greats by "Ventures" is my favourite too. Walk Dont run, Telstar, Pipeline, wipeout, the lonely bull are superb.

Must be lovely ambience stevieboy.

Some vinyl albums are so good once you put needle on it you can easily listen to them for half an hour without need to change track.
