Exploring new music tonight:
Some funky Bass playing on this one!
Streaming on the main rig,
Oscar Peterson & Milt Jackson / Two Of The Few
Tomorrow we're supposed to get 4"-7" of snow. Probably be spinning again!
Sorry no music but this one is for Lou @Dusty Ol'Man . This is surely how good karma works. Headed off to the post office to mail Lou a package. Swung by the record store. Brought home 2 Blue Note samplers for $.50 each. One of the owners tells me a customer picked up a pair of KLH 6's from Goodwill last week. So what the heck I swing by GW on the way home.
This Sherwood RX 4105 is there. Marked $15.00 so I take it up to the counter and ask if they have some speaker wire so I can test it(no returns). The cashier who knows me says nope. I then mentioned I would take a chance on it if it was 5 bucks. So She says how about $5.99? I said sold.
Got her home and all channels work with fm. Included was a bag with a remote 4 sets of Rca cables, FM antenna,AM antenna and a unopened rca Y to mini plug also. Also a HDMI cable. Looks like the Sherwood remote might go to a DVD player. We'll see. I used to own one of these and gifted it to my brother. Good unit with phono but hates anything under 8 ohms.......not a scratch on it. Thanks Lou!!!!
2nd to last pic is before a good dusting.Last is fired up
Great minds think alike:
This is fast becoming a favorite for me. "Good Clean Fun" has to be one of the best album openers there is.
Was watching "Bandersnatch" on Netflix late last night and was pleased to hear "Making Plans For Nigel" by XTC. I sense a new quest for XTC vinyl. I had pretty much forgotten about them after Dear God some 30 years ago. Time to reacquaint myself.
William / aka Fuzzbuster,
The speakers you sent arrived today and they are a direct swap.
Thank you very much, you've been a great help.
I've spent about 6 hours with Bandersnatch already.
About 2.5 by myself then another 3+ hours with a buddy visiting.
NP - Cream ~ Wheels Of Fire (1968 Atco stereo LP)
That Judy cover is killer!
Was searching for Billy Idol earlier, ran across this.
And here I was thinking that was hands clapping just past the halfway mark.....
(Edit, I was looking for the soundtrack this track featured in, but can't remember the name of the movie?)
The Look of Love
Excellent SACD with just great music and sonics!
Verve 589 957-2
UK 1970. Something was in the air back then...
I have a Sherwood receiver I use as a backup when my Yammie goes to the shop. It definitely does a good job. It's not as detailed or sweet sounding as the Yammie (what is!?), but it can deliver some good power to my Advents.
Finally home. I hope it’s just a 24 hour thing.
Surgery day, in and out. I'm feeling fine. Of course, I'm on drugs, lol, so who knows how I really am. In any case, doc thinks this third time is the charm. I'll know in a coupla weeks at my post op. In the meantime, three more weeks of convalescence. Three more weeks of record spinning.
