    Saw this at a yard sale last weekend and decided to grab it. I don't know the group, but I like the cover. Thought I'd give it a spin in honor of our dear departed ( on hiatus ) member, P-Man. See if you can guess the connection. image.jpeg

    The free beer lp was pretty solid. Hey, who doesn't like free beer. Well..maybe Northwinds..the album is on a label called Southwinds..and they're diametrically opposed. Next up for me is Linda. Hasten Down The Winds. Lot of wind around here lately...wasn't me though. image.jpeg

    Desert Island Disks is a long-running BBC transmission, in which a notable person is asked which 8 recordings they would take with them if they were to be landed on a desert island with no hope of rescue. It was originally presented by Roy Plomley in 1942. Later presenters were Michael Parkinson, Sue Lawley and Kirsty Young.

    So I went back up to the shop today and searched that box again. The entire box was new this week and had come from one collection, so I figured I had a good chance of finding my correct vinyl. Sure enough there it was, Bobby Darin's Inside Out with my vinyl for The Bobby Darrin Story going Commando inside the jacket.

    Which naturally gets me digging through the crates again, so these followed me home.
    Gilels - Szell and The Cleveland Orchestra
    Beethoven: The Complete Piano Concertos

    Vivaldi - The Four Seasons
    Itzhak Perlman and the London Philharmonic Orchestra

    $7.00 in damage today. No complaints.

    EDIT - Check out Mack The Knife on that Bobby Darrin Story label. Blitzstein! New moniker for our man On The Blitz.

    That's too general a statement. I have some vinyl that sounds terrible and I have some cd's that sound fantastic. Just because the sound is 'warmer' doesn't mean it's better. Vinyl, for the most part is a 'warm medium' while cd's sound, let's say, 'less warm.' Both sources each have their own strengths and weaknesses. The quality of the DAC used when playing cd's is just as important as the quality of the cartridge being used playing vinyl. There's always something better out there, but one would go crazy trying to find it. Better to spend valuable time looking for good music.

    I just thought of this; the vinyl vs cd debate is so similar to tubes vs solid state. It all comes down to personal taste, and sometimes convenience.

    That's why this thread is such a great place to hang out. Any and all music is accepted, played on any and all equipment. The music rules the roost and everything else is incidental.

    Thanks for answering for me. It is an intriguing question-which recordings would you take with you if placed on a deserted island?
