There's a lot of rock going on here, so this mightn't work : melodic middle-of-the-road from Finland :)
However she has an angelic voice and the Finnish is enchanting.

last night I went to an open air concert of "Rodrigues", if you like Dillon or cat Stevens you may enjoy this guy. we are having a serious heat wave at present and have not seen rain for a month or two but true to open air concerts............it rained. if you get a chance to listen to his music then I recommend the album "cold fact" brilliant.

Just been listening to Robert Plant with Alison Krauss - now Robert Plant I knew about, but Alison Krauss ? Wow! :shock: Why has it taken me 30 years to find that one?

Well, thanks to another forum going on about the new De Agostini Jazz release, I have bought myself a new record deck. Went for something decent as my collection is in fine condition. I was previously using a Michel Focus One, which I sold because it wasn't being used enough. Got a couple of hundred for it, but now they seem to go for £500+. Replacement is Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC that seems to be a decent bit of kit. That runs into a Pro-ject MM pre-amp then through a device ( a DAC) that provides the digitised audio to the computer running Vinyl Studio as well as the feed to the power amp.

I then started buying vinyl off Ebay and what a problem it is to get good condition records. The standard condition scale is not what I would use at all and has caught me out. Seems that the key is to only go for "mint" or at least "excellent". One of the records I bought was the Alan Parsons Project, Eye in the Sky album. That wouldn't even track, let alone play. Others in a bundle buy are Guilty by Striesand and Gibb, Carol King's Tapestry and Dire Straits etc. All were in poor condition, one looking like it had been buried in the garden for a few weeks and that is no exaggeration! Another seemed to have been cleaned with a Brillo pad. Taking some advice, I settled on a clean with distilled water, but where do you get it? I looked online and couldn't believe that it was around £5 a litre for WATER! Then I remembered I had a de-humidifier. A couple of hours and I had a jug full. For the clean, I put it onto a clean towel and flooded it with a mists of water. a gentle circular brush with a soft sponge and another flood of water. Shake dry and dry with a thin microfibre clean tea towel. Unbelievable difference. The unplayable discs are now sorted and even the surface noise has decreased greatly.

So to get back on topic, records bought include:

Carol King, Tapestry.
Alan Parsons Project, Eye in the sky.
Dire Straits, Brothers in arms.
Dire Straits, Making movies.
Dire Straits, Communique.
Alison Moyet – Raindancing.
Clannad – Macella.
Simon & Garfunkel, Greatest hits.
Shakin’ Stevens,Greatest hits.
Moody Blues, Long distance voyager.
Survivor, Eye of the tiger.
Abba, Super Trooper.

Some in the bundle I would never have bought by choice, but have enjoyed them, especially the Barbara Striesand / Barry Gibb record. I have also enjoyed rediscovering some of the gems in my original collection and wondering what I saw in things like Hawkwind, the Hawkwind Collection. What a row, not what I remembered at all and Silver Machine was a big disappointment. Must be a different mix to the single perhaps.

I am in the market for inexpensive vinyl now, anything from the 1970s is of interest, if in nice condition. New pressings are not so good as often they use the same masters as CDs which have been horribly compressed and therefore the vinyly offers no benefit. The words "Digitally remastered" are another way of saying that they have had that mistreatment.

AJ if you are interested I will "donate to a worthy cause" namely you, my vinyl collection or what's left of it, condition unknown at least for the last twenty years, moody blues, George Harrison, Phil Collins plus some more I think. let me check and get back to you. there should be three moody blues, days of future past, in search of a lost cord plus one I cant remember. These have been replaced by CD that I rarely play anyway. I will put them in the next UK container that should leave in march

great to see the vinyl being used! had some friends round last week to have a vinyl night (ooh err) and ended up playing loads of stuff not heard for years. some with good reason. :D Brother hood of man, Dana being some of it!

i have plenty of the vinyl still and it gets played regularly.. we have Sonos all over the house, but i still have the Rega Planar turntable connected through a 70's Sony amp (£10 ebay) and some rather nice floor standing speakers. cant beat the sound....

latest listenings mostly rock including Bad Company, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rush and Rainbow. i should be embarrased but i'm not. its all good stuff! 8)


If it is made of nuts and bolts I WILL take it apart..... going back together is a whole different ball game
