Rage Against the Machine - The Battle of Mexico City is a great example of how even a fairly poor recording can still capture the essence of a show. This might be one of my favorite RSD releases since I learned that RSD was even a thing.
I've got the house to myself all weekend - time to get spinning! Trying to figure out if I want to get Wildflowers, American Head, and/or Song Machine deluxe. I could get them all, but I'm trying to regulate the cashflow for other things. Hmmmm.
A friend's dad gave us his remaining vinyl collection, and I've been randomly cleaning it and going through various albums at random via discogs roulette. Tons of fun to discover new/old gems! Getting my first real taste of Emerson Lake and Palmer right now.
Is it just me, or is VMP's customer service responses even slower than they were when they migrated to the new site? The old 48 hour window seems to always be an automated response, but real responses seem to take a week or more now.
Got a delivery notice from VMP, but no package. I changed my address this month so I'm assuming in typical VMP fashion they messed up and shipped it to my previous address. Guess I'll find out the solution in like 1-2 weeks when they get back to me. Ughhhh.
Back home for a few days and finally got the new belt and fresh bearing grease on the UltraDeck. Back up to normal speed and running a little quieter. I'll be more diligent about regular maintenance in the future.
