Stravinsky - Svetlanov: Le Sacre du Printemps / Symphony in 3 movements on Melodya. It was just one lonesome Sacre in an empty box. The Sacre is my favorite anyway and this is recording nr xx? Oh well, I don't really care since I only pay per LP and this one is one excelllent performance. Just one little scratch and a little surface noise.
And on the topic of Melodya: it turns out I own a whole stash of them, mainly Tchaikovsky. A stack from my dad and a some more from my uncle, some are even double. Only they got the old budget Garrard (or Philips) grooveplough treatment. They sound pretty battered. I'll try the woodgluetreatment but I have no high hopes.
BTW, you should see my bicycles. No worn parts there, and spare parts in the cupboard. From vintage '90 carbon to the newest electronic gearchange. I can't help the lp's I buy 2ndH. The covers might wear a bit but the ones I bought new are all still as new. Thats also a big plus if you have a large collection and a better than average TT (properly set up that is!).
