There's the war on drugs. Then there's The War on Drugs. I've come to these records late but I'm really enjoying them. I give Lost in the Dream the edge but Slave Ambient is also good. The Lovely Thing (aka my wife) likes them, too, so the band is a new house favorite.
Damn. I've always loved that cover. I might have to pick up some Carly. (I don't have any!)
One of my all-time favorite albums. I can play this one over and over again. I can almost feel like I live inside this record after a while.
She sure can be sexy.
Maureen McGovern / The Morning After
1973 20th Century
"The Morning After" is the theme song to "The Poseidon Adventure" movie. Saw that movie in the theater when it came out.
Seen that Played alot lately. Getting a vinyl copy on Sat. A nice chill record. And a wife favorite.
The pressing numbers are backwards on the "Aja" album. "AB" is the first pressing. "AA" is the second. "AB" has more refined upper frequencies.
What copy is yours?
Of course, how can I not love an album by these guys? Especially when it's got a song named after my favorite hormonal supplement.
I have both AB and AA copies. I bought it the very week it came out, way back. Then, a few years ago, I got obsessed over the whole pressing thing and went out searching out different copies, including some AA. I now own six pressings. And yes, I would have to give the nod to the AB, although I haven't heard any of the specifically more audiophile pressings made later.
Rush -- A Farewell To Kings --
Basia / London Warsaw New York
Pearl Jam--Ten...Brendon O'Brian Remaster
Concrete Blonde - S/T
Very interesting. I didn't even note that when I cataloged my copy on discogs. I have an AA copy. I may have to go looking for an AB copy now or the MFSL or the 2007 remaster (although that one looks hella expensive), just to see what they sound like.
Trying to decide if this is a keep or return. Picked it up at Half Price books for $12.99 + tax. It has some noise in sections though. I've cleaned it once but might give it another try. It looks really good so I'm surprised with some of the surface noise. It's mostly a strong VG+ or better in most places except for a decent part of track 2 (so far) which would be a solid VG. I don't have any other copies of Time Out though so I'm torn.
