Boomtown Rats "In the Long Grass" in the spare bedroom.  Did a bit of rearranging in there - took the S40s out and put in a Dark Side project.  I'm going to DIY some stands for the S40s and bring them back in when complete.  Gotta go search the archive to see Soren M's DIY S45 stands....

On my lunch break I bought 3 new CDs. 

On its fourth consecutive play is The Shins and their album 'Wincing the Night Away.'

You get as you deserve Big Smile, forgot to mention, the org. screws for the speakers are M5, and instead of the brass bushings they used rubber bushings

Cool speakers Rich!! I am afraid you have lost the Darkside DIY battle though...

What's playing right now: 1kHz sine wave.

Hey, Evan! How did you found this? How you dare to post this? Big Smile I can't stop to listen the entire album over and over...for more than a week!

I'm a progressive rock fan, but this lady sounds FANTASTIC! And every time I play the songs I find more and more details of her music. Now I'm watching her concert at Minessota Smile

Well-have to say Thank you for share with us!

You are very welcome, sir! I wouldn't dare keep her a secret :-)

Dessa was played for me by a friend here at school. He was playing that album through some headphones for a demo. My friend is actually from Minnesota and apparently Dessa is from the area.

I fully agree - categorically brilliant songs. Not only are they well composed but they are recorded brilliantly too.

My personal favorites are 'Kites' and 'Dixon's Girl'

I know what I'm listening to later... ;-)

A guy who works for me, Duane, makes a good bit of cash on the side flipping items he buys at auctions, estate sales, and the like.  Tuesday he showed up with a few hundred 45s from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s.  Unfortunately it didn't turn out to be the mother lode of Beatles and Elvis Presley singles, but I've been enjoying cleaning them up and listening.  Highlights so far:

Loretta Lynn "Coal Miner's Daughter"

Prince "Raspberry Beret" and "Sign o' the Times"

Gerry Rafferty "Right Down the Line"

Pink Floyd "Another Brick in the Wall Part II"

Hot Chocolate "You Sexy Thing"

Joan Jett "Crimson and Clover"

The Who "Happy Jack"

Bee Gees "Jive Talkin'"

And my personal favorite so far:  Carly Simon "Itsy Bitsy Spider" as a B-side to some song I'd never heard of.

I've run out of new sleeves so I'll be putting these away until the new order comes in.  The box below is about 40% of what Duane sold me this week.  It always saddens me to see this many records without jackets.  Sad

I suppose they have gone in & come out of juke boxes at some point - obviously the sleeves get lost in the process. Back in the 80s, you could buy those for cheap here in Finland from the company that back then had a legislated monopoly on money operated juke boxes. Unfortunately, most of that music was crap, but I have a few good singles from the day.

Quite possibly - one of the reasons I've started collecting 45s is to one day fill a juke box that's in the "game room."

Well, after a year of flawless operation following service from Bennie, seems the plague that hit Evan and Soren may have hit my BG 4002.  Had to go to the spare bedroom tonight to continue cleaning and playing my new 45s.

"Now you're messin' with a, a son-of-a-...."

The BG 3404 in the spare bedroom is an adequate deck with a fine MMC20EN on it, but it's just not the same as the BG 4002 with the new Soundsmith cartridge.

Altogether now:

"S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y, night!"

The Bay City Rollers, if Casey Kasem is to be believed, named themselves after one member randomly stuck his finger on a globe and hit Bay City, Michigan.  Bay City is the original home of Madonna, who once described the place in a Rolling Stone interview:  "a smelly little town north of Detroit."

Not that anyone asked or cares, but I grew up 20 miles southwest of Bay City in an even smaller, smellier town called Vassar.  But we're all from somewhere, right?

Dude, you are truly my hero.  

I've been continuing the cleaning of and listening to newly acquired 45s.  Today I'm in the master bedroom with a retipped (by Bennie) MMC4, RX 2, <cough, Sony receiver, cough>, and S45-2.  Highlight of the day (so far):  Hot Chocolate's "You Sexy Thing."

Have left my main rig for the summer, so I'm using my iPad with my Form 2's listening to Susanne Sundførs new album. Great stuff!

Taking a break from old, scratchy 45s to listen to some pristine CDs today.  Started out with an old favorite from college:  This is Big Audio Dynamite.  Whatever happened to Mick Jones?  No, not that Mick Jones, this Mick Jones.

A black magic ipod, take your music with you, a DiskGoCase

Don't laugh!  The collection I bought from Duane a few weeks ago included one of these. 

Question:  don't these cases break the two Cardinal Rules:  (1) store on edge; (2) store in jacket?

Thinking about it, they are the predecessor of throwing your CD cases away and storing the discs in an empty spindle...

Right, and if you leave your records like that for a long time, they get bend, outer edge gets bend downward.

I never saw one of these in Europe, in my youth we had ours in maps.

In the spirit of "Pictures, Or It Didn't Happen," I present my Disk-Go-Case - in groovy powder blue, no less!

(Mine is filthy!)

EDIT

By the way, 50 of these are on sale at US Ebay.  Some folks are trying to get $250+ for a Beatles version.

Is there an emoticon for shaking one's head?

Lovely, lovely Ludwig van in the bedroom.  

A 1978 LP of the Ninth from the Cleveland Orchestra.  Sounds fantastic near field with my desktop S45-2s.

Yesterday I got back a rebuilt MMC3000 from The Soundsmith.  Replaced the new Soundsmith cartridge in my BG4002 with the rebuild and played the rerelease of Band on the Run.  Mini-review of the rebuild in one word:  awesome.

Keith Richards' Vintage Winos with rebuilt MMC3000/BG4002.  The BG4002 doesn't always "see" the translucent red vinyl and user intervention is required.  ("O the humanity!")

What do you think, Eugene?  Best album cover ever?
