Nice surprise and on Easter Sunday at that. I woke up with this hanging off my front porch when I woke up this morning.
Nice built in speaker too you can carry it with you while you drink tea at the park.Something a bit different today. Not vinyl related but hopefully, I can be forgiven.
I have been clearing out some boxes from a garage and stumbled across this cool Sanyo M-A5LL cassette player/recorder. It's portable but can be easily hooked up to my speakers and plugged into the mains. A few of you may recall that I bought several hundred live jazz cassettes a while ago and this is going to make it much easier to listen to!

The Cars - The Cars MoFi
The Grateful Dead - Skull & Roses MoFi
John Lee Hooker - It Serves You Right To Suffer AP 45 RPM
J Mascis - Several Shades Of Why

These were all mail deliveries. Kurt Vile and Darkside were ordered directly from Matador. The Cars and John Lee Hooker were purchased from Acoustic Sounds. The Grateful Dead MoFi was a good deal from Discogs. J Mascis was an average deal from Discogs and Primus was PIF winner from mensch @zdkaiser. I’ve gotta lot of listening ahead of me.

Joshua Abrams - Natural Information
Joshua Abrams - Represencing
Chicago-based bassist Josh Abrams puts out a singular style of improvisational, avant garde jazz spotlighting the guimbri, a three-stringed North African bass lute. Its primordial, rhythmic drone lulls like a deep rainstorm, gently bringing shifts in instrumentation and percussion to the forefront in jams that go on as long as 25 minutes. These are special records, recently reissued by Aguirre Records in Belgium, and beautifully pressed at Pallas.
