    The other new purchase from today's Walmart visit.
    (I don't care what anyone says, I love Walmart)
    I might as well set this to repeat mode. It's some of the most intense metal ever recorded, and it just builds and builds during it's 24 minutes.
    My original press vinyl looms in the background and nods approvingly of the new remaster.

    Darn,
    The previous post I made tonight in regards to spinning the 1966 release of "the 50 guitars of tommy Garrett" is pretty sweet. Tommy Tedesco is quite the guitar player. I remember seeing his guitar lessons for years on the guitar magazines. This is my first spin with this LP. In March 2017, my oldest sister and brother in law stopped by while driving back home on a road trip. He had a box of vinyl for me. I guess, at 68, he is going through that "purge" phase and giving away stuff he doesn't use anymore. I really tried to talk him into keeping the vinyl and starting to spin it again (I really did! as I would preference that). However, he was adamant on he was going to get rid of them. So I accepted and am going through them all in alphabetical order to filter them into my collection. His tastes were different than mine (he was no rocker). I would not have liked his collection back in the day, but I sure do now that I have aged and can appreciate diversity. I will play anything on vinyl someone hands me today. So, this LP would not be something I would seek out, but it sure was a pleasant surprise. Yes, he did actually have ELP Trilogy in the mix. That was the first LP spun (see I do LOVE ELP!) However, the sleeper find were the 14 Neil Diamond Albums. Yes, I know Neil Diamond but actually listening to 14 albums opened my eyes as I really enjoyed that run.

    Like the story. I got my 1st PL from an older guy just down the street bought it new 1977.
    Built a new plinth for it but the stock running gear is seemingly bulletproof and sounds good.
    But HOW do you keep it from skipping? They are touchy as a feather on wood floors.
    Had to build a shelf just for the PL 115 to stop needle bounce.

    Incorrect. The Raptor did catch on. It is so good, one can take down five F15E's before the E's even know what happened. Therefore, instead of building 800, they built 198. Yes, they are expensive though. EDIT: Also, the F35 is a piece of crap. The Navy wants an F14, 6th or likely, 7th generation version.

    EDIT: Also, there are plans in the works to come out with a revised even better version of the F22.

    Another local boy who made good (and quite a bit of dough playing guitar). From Niagara Falls/Grand Island; a member of the Wrecking Crew and a lynchpin of the "Fernwood Tonight" band. Guitar Player lesson maestro.

    I always thought he played that killer solo on the Monkees "Valerie," but apparently that was another studio guy.

    SWEET 432HzBob!
    I love that you too have one of these so underrated tables. To ben honest, mine has never been set up via a wooden floor room so I can't say how it has performed in that type of floor. I do know the set up I have now is working well. It tracks very well. Yes, it can skip if one walks around the room with a heavy foot. But on the flip side, I really don't have to tip - toe either. I keep my tracking and anti-skate set @ 1.75 grams with this Ortofon 2M Red. I have read on the pioneer threads that some have "stiffened" the suspension due to the issue you speak of. I actually liked that this cheap table has a good suspension system, as it set it apart from similar units back in 1977. I really love the craftsmanship of your PL-115D. I looks very nice.

    Oops, thought I included it. Rather obscure artist, so not much out there. Three piece with an upright bass.

    Love the tape and the gear JRhoBurton!
    Nice deck from the pic. Not sure if you like to use it for recording or if you just play pre-recorded. If you do record, you may want to check out my previous posts in regards to National Audio Company making another run with their Type II Chrome tape. When cassettes were going south, NAC purchased about everyone's cassette equipment as they saw it would never really go away. They made tapes for religious tapes, books on tape etc. Well, now that Cassettes are coming back, they do make a nice Type I tape for great price ($13 bucks for a case of 10) . They are coming out with, in 3 to 4 months, what they say will be the hottest Type I tape ever made by anyone. I can't wait! But they also bought out BASF's remaining pancake reels of BASF Chrome Type II. They are making another run now and will be available for shipment in July. The website still shows them as "out of stock" but I pre-ordered 10 cases (5 each of the 60 minutes and 90 Minutes) . They say this will be the last and final run of the type II. Unless cassettes really come back in droves of millions, I truly believe this is going to literally be the last time one can buy type II Chrome tape (other than e-bay New Old stock, but that won't be around forever either). So I am getting the 10 cases to use for very special recordings over the next (35 years? or whenever death occurs) I am currently using their type I Audio Pro tapes which I think are much better then the Maxell UR that is all that is left. So I can't wait also for their new type I high end tapes coming out. I will use them for the majority of recordings and the type II for that very occasional record. I am trying to position myself to enjoy vintage audio for years to come and this focus is to ensure I keep the cassette option in the loop. Check out the posts and their website. !

    Gave it an honest listen. Hate it. I just don't like hip hop canned drums and foul mouthed lyrics. The singers could be something of they had something to work with. As always, jmho,ymmv.

    Caught that in your post. You are forgiven, not that you were ever in need of forgiveness.
    Show me that ELP - Trilogy one of these days. I love seeing all the real stuff and I collect it all in a little folder on the pc marked ELP.
    Blitz's MOFI GOLD copy of Trilogy...nuff said. :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the tips, good info.

    I record quite a bit on reel, but for cassettes there are some "dependencies". I have a big box of these and similar...

    rps20180613_214732.jpg ...most of which I got at good prices on Bartertown. I am saving these for a car cassette unit I have that needs a car. I really should just go ahead and install it in the Kia for now, but it sure would be nice if a '67 Camaro fell from heaven.
