    The N&G Top 500 Albums of All Time!!!

    Yesterday evening I was going through my music library again, and discovered that I need to at least one piece of classical music to my list. Beethoven's 7th symphony, especially the 2nd movement (Allegretto), is IMHO one of the best and most perfect musical compositions of all time, I really...

    The N&G Top 500 Albums of All Time!!!

    Yesterday I finished my preliminary Top50 list. First I went over my MP3 collection, which I'm curating since the early days of Napster, then my current Tidal/Roon library, and of course my small record collection. Unfortunately I've thrown out my tapes and CDs a few years ago, but the most...

    Vinyl Me Please (store, exclusives, swaps, etc)

    Thanks @Selaws, @bettim84, @Murfocakes for replies to my question... I really like @Murfocakes plan, however, alcohol-induced FOMO caught up to me before thinking it through, and so I joined for a 1-month Classics subscription with Rollins, and ordered the 2 John Lee Hookers. And today I've sent...

    The N&G Top 500 Albums of All Time!!!

    I also already started to compile my all-time favourite albums, including a few "historical landmark" albums (but from my point of view, what affected me, what opened up my mind for new genres, etc., even if I don't listen to them at all anymore). It is a lot of fun going through old and new...

    Vinyl Me Please (store, exclusives, swaps, etc)

    I'd have a general VMP question... I used to be a member until I quit in January after my fair share of problems and lack of interessting titles for me. However, I'm really really interessted in that Sonny Rollins classics pick of last month, and I'd love to get my hands on the 2 John Lee Hooker...

    The N&G Top 500 Albums of All Time!!!

    I'm in too. It's gonna be a lot of fun compiling a list of 50 or 100 of my personal favourite albums, and then comparing what other members like, and if and where my choices end up on the final list. But the difficult part for me is gonna be ranking them. I don't really have like an absolute...

    Pure Pleasure Records

    I have to revise my previous statement a bit... I just listened to Singin' The Blues again, and it does not sound that bad, it is actually a really enjoyable listen. Only listened to that record once after I got it, did a quick compare to a digital version, and then I decided to put it on...

    Pure Pleasure Records

    I have 10 Pure Pleasure Records records 😁 They are mostly really great and awesome sounding. The only one I'm really disappointed is B.B. King's Singin The Blues. I've listened to that one on 3 different systems, and it just doesn't sound good to me. A digital remaster I found on Tidal sounds...

    What's Spinning

    Lee Morgan - Vol. 3 1984 Japan Toshiba pressing I'm actually completely broke at the moment, but when a really good offer on some Lee Morgan comes up, my brain just shuts off... so I got myself that together with some other japanese pressings, I'll post them in the following days (when I...

    The Blue Note Thread

    Thanks a lot! Just bought it! After scoring the BN80 live recordings of Art Blakey and Horace Silver for 10€ each on Amazon, I basically check daily for similar discounts on Amazon for my missing BN80 and TPs, and sometimes Dodax/Ebay/Discogs as well. Thanks to Corona related paycuts I had to...

    The Blue Note Thread

    Thanks for that input. I'm pretty sure that it's a mid 60's release, since the vinyl has the P/ear and Van Gelder stamp in the dead wax, and the matrix numbers match the first press info on Discogs. Also the labels on the record and the printed innersleeve match up. All of that hints for a...

    The Blue Note Thread

    I'd need your help guys in identifying a first pressing... As already mentioned in the "What's Spinning" thread I've received my 1965 OG Mono copy of "The Blue Mitchell Quintett - Down With It" BLP 4214 yesterday, after the package was on the road around the world for nearly half a year. It has...

    What's Spinning

    The Blue Mitchell Quintet - Down With It! 1965 Mono OG I ordered that record beginning of March in the U.S. from a Discogs seller. However, the record was sent to Australia instead of Austria (many people around the world confuse those countries, especially Americans 😁, so why not USPS as...
