My first picture disc was actually bought as an accident. The description and art didn't match what I got from Amazon...but I got something so much better. 

 

Touch By the Crimson King by Demons & Wizards. Glorious 180 picture disc. Lateralus was the second.

Will shop later tonight for my very first coloured/pictured vinyl LP...

Long time ago I read colored discs aren't as quiet as the usual black discs, can't remember why.  All my stuff is hit or miss regarding surface noise levels, so I'm thinking it doesn't matter too much anymore, if it even ever did.

 

 

 

Today Dave Brubeck died so I'm firing up the rig to play a few in his honor.  RIP, sir.

 

Warm up with an original stereo version of Take Five because my original mono version is a bit beat, then do the single sided four album set on 45 rpm 180 gr released in 1995 on Classic.

 

Cheers Dave Brubeck, thank you.

Eee Pee, you know how to do it! I'm giving him a nod later tonight as well, but unable to do so in grand style.

Time to pull out my Columbia reissue of that album beerchug.gif If there's anyone who deserves a tribute, it's Brubeck.

Brubeck (and Desmond) was a National Treasure. I dont have any of his works on vinyl, but will enjoy his performances on my Legends of Jazz with Ramsey Lewis DVD in my home theater later tonight.

All right, which of the above is the oldest original or your favorite?

 

I too thank Dave Brubeck. What a lovely journey it has been and will forever be.

A few of the turntables I own, yeah, I guess you could say I am obsessive-compulsive, keep meaning to sell a few.... I have 3 or 4 out in the shop system. Can't pass up Thorens, Garrards, or Rek-O-kuts.

Oh my. Your place would make for a great dinner destination - retreating from the dinner table to the listening room.

Top four are 1995 and my favorite.  Single side 45s are way cool, and they sound fantastic!  Clean, clear, dynamic.

 

Left is original 1959 stereo copy, right is 1959 mono.  Both in bad shape, and I won't play the mono one but I will play the stereo version.

 

Then the 1997 CD, and 1999 SACD, and the 1996 Time Further Out, the follow up to Time Out.  The SACD sounds very good.

 

I'd save the SACD and 45s before I save my equipment to play them with.

"New to me" Pioneer PL-530 with red oak veneer.





I installed an Ortofon 2M Bronze and she sounds great!

Nice!!!

Thanks David. I wanted one with a real wood veneer for the basement system, and the PL-550 I had down there was still wood-grain vinyl veneer... This looks much nicer. It's also "more different" from my PL-570.
