  • Found an OG Miles Smiles on Friday, bought the MoFi Kind Of Blue boxset yesterday, and now I just found an OG Sketches Of Spain in great condition. My Miles collection has doubled in size this weekend 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻. It’s about time.

    I hope 1 of those 6 records is "In A Silent Way"? It truly is one of the most beautiful pieces of music.

    @jamieanderson1968 not yet! The other three are Bitches Brew, Sorcerer and Miles Davis and John Coltrane: The Final Tour, eyeing the MoFi copy of In A Silent Way For next month! I’ve been leaning into Jazz a lot the past two years I’ve been collecting and just realized recently that I have basically no Miles and Trane, or many of THE classic albums actually. So I’m zeroing in on them now

    Good plan. I actually came to Miles via the Bill Laswell remix album (sacrilege I know) back in '97 and totally fell in love In A Silent Way.
    Finally decided to save my vinyl budget this month and spend it on the MOFI Kind of Blue boxset. Didn’t want to settle for the Legacy press on Amazon, not on an album this iconic

    That’s a good presing

    @AnthonyI that’s been my philosophy as late, been spending my tip money week after week digging and coming home with okay pressings of great albums and as a result don’t listen to them much. Now just zeroing in on what I can nab from MoFi, AP, Speakers Corner, MM and more over the next couple of months. Been super fulfilling!

    Anyone have outer sleeves they recommend?
    I had to shut off this Chance record a little more than half way through. I really didn’t enjoy this album. Everything is just way too over the top and none of it really clicks the way it used to. Chance is starting to seem like a parody of himself

    I'm yet to get on the chance train I just dont rate him at all personally. That said I posted this album earlier so people could see it was up. I am going to try it myself tmrw

    In the past three weeks I’ve gotten a promotion, engaged to my girlfriend of 3 years and a beautiful 2 month old husky rescue pup! Good things really do come in threes!
    Anyone have any experience with Japanese Blue Note King Pressings? How do they sound?

    They're generally very good. And can be had for relatively good prices.

    I have a couple of them and they all sound very good. Instant buy if it's a decent price!

    Your membership should still be open until the 1st. I cancelled mine but it doesn't take hold until the 1st, meaning I can still order.

    Apparently it’s the same pressing available for black on amazon for $10 cheaper so I’d just go that route.
    If VMP’s swaps aren’t on point this month they’re getting canceled after a year and a half of membership. Was going to swap for Big Bill Broonzy but it’s going for $12 on cogs for a NM edition, way cheaper than $27 for a mint version. I’ve been spending on this monthly membership to get albums I may like meanwhile the albums and classics I really really want aren’t on my shelves b/c VMP gets my money every month! 😩
    I got the job guys! I start training on Monday, thank you for all the well wishes! Other dudes may have been more experienced but I had N&G on my side! WOO

    Congrats! What are you going to be doing?

    @wokeupnew Going to be moving over to a new cafe, I've been a barista the past couple months but my current cafe doesn't make it easy for us to receive tips, new cafe pays me the same base but has tips built into the purchase process! Will definitely help build a cushion. Decided to step away from the tech industry and be a Barista while I learn digital product design and launch my own business.

    @wokeupnew The corporate world was just always on, even when I was out of work I was still expected to work, it was killing me inside. So this gig has been awesome, just needed to make a littttle bit more money which I feel confident I will make now!
    Should be hearing back tomorrow on a job I interviewed for on Tuesday, I've got a great feeling about it! Could really use this job, rent and record money has been tight the past couple months :(. I'm feeling its time for a breath of fresh air. New gig would be at a really cool, swanky cafe in LA, pays more, I get tips, AND I get to control the music my entire shift :). Send me your good energy peeps!

    I am all about rooting for the bettering of people's lives and, sir, you have all of it from me. Right now I am playing Kayne West's The Glory for both of us(even if you don't like him, its a pumped up song)

    GREAT LUCK!

    EDIT: May be tipsy...but equally enthused for you ;)

    EDIT: now It's Good Life.

    @EmeryRK I sense we both have some good news coming our way very soon! Cheers Emery! I don't think you have anything to worry about when it comes to the personality test. Your interactions with others on this forum have shown that your character is strong and kind, that goes a long way! I'm wishing you the best of results my friend!

    @EmeryRK A Good Life it is indeed, never against some celebratory Kanye! I'm playing some Dave Brubeck Digs Disney for us, whats got more positive energy than Dave covering Disney tunes?? 🤷‍♂️
