    Buffalo Springfield - Last Time Around
    (1968, Atco) AT LW in the deadwax; 1st pressing Purple & Brown label



    This pressing sounds incredible, great soundstage, vocals guitar strings jump out of the speakers.
    Produced by Jim Messina who also serves as a recording engineer, and contributes a song. w/ the usual great songwriting here from Stephen Stills, Neil Young and Richie Furay.

    Had a break in the cold-crappy weather yesterday and today so got out on safari ...did OK.

    I like Linda and have picked up many copies of this, but never good enuff quality to buy till now...also love the sound of the quad vinyls,,so 1812 was a good find..

    have 3 or 4 copies of Days of Future Passed, but this one was in such superior condition that resistance to purchase was futile...same case with the Fab Four

    w/ Jaco Pastorius, bass; Bob Moses, drums. Metheny was 21 when he recorded this record.

    Last Friday night I saw Metheny in Seattle for his Orchestrion tour, great concert!

    The Beatles - Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! A Hard Day's Night

    Really glad that I purchased this new in the mid 1970s (for ~$6).

    Did you buy it in the US ?? Normally would be on Capitol ...

    I'm not really a country fan, but DO really enjoy John Fogerty , I have his Blue Ridge Rangers (which is John playing all instruments) , so was happy to find "The Blue Ridge Rangers Rides Again" ....this time Fogerty has pro accompaniment* and is a really enjoyable album (Aug 2009) ...a huge bonus is a remake of the great "Change in the Weather" .."Moody River" is fine too

    http://www.amazon.com/Blue-Ridge-Ran...3345481&sr=8-2

    Paradise (John Prine)
    Never Ending Song of Love (Delaney Bramlett)
    Garden Party (Rick Nelson)
    I Don't Care (Just As Long As You Love Me) (Buck Owens)
    Back Home Again (John Denver)
    I'll Be There (If You Ever Want Me) (Ray Price, Rusty Gabbard)
    Change In The Weather (John Fogerty)
    Moody River (Gary Bruce)
    Heaven's Just A Sin Away (J. Gillespie)
    Fallin', Fallin', Fallin' (D. Deckleman, J. Guillot, J.D. Miller)
    Haunted House (Robert Geddins)
    When Will I Be Loved (Phil Everly)

    *
    Unlike the first Blue Ridge Rangers album where Fogerty anonymously transformed himself into his own backing band by playing all of the instruments, an all-star cast of supporting musicians were on hand for the new BRR project. These include Buddy Miller, Kenny Aronoff, Greg Leisz, Jay Bellerose, Jason Mowery, Herb Pedersen, Jodie Kennedy, Oren Waters, Chris Chaney, Dennis Crouch, and Hunter Perrin. "I'd long thought I'd do another Blue Ridge Rangers album," Fogerty commented, "and not make the mistake of playing all the instruments. These are fantastic players who really understand what the Blue Ridge Rangers vibe is about." Also joining in were Bruce Springsteen and Eagles' Don Henley and Timothy B. Schmit who worked, respectively, with Fogerty on the Everly Brothers' "When Will I Be Loved" and Rick Nelson's "Garden Party."

    Bad Company - self titled
    (1974, Swan Song) "Cut at The Mastering Lab, Los Angeles"



    I saw these guys when they toured in support of this record back in 1974.




    Beatles - Hard Day's Night - EMI/Odeon German import

    Quote Originally Posted by SEAWOLF97 View Post

    Yes, purchased as an import title at a N. Seattle record store (Everybody's Records, iirc) for the princely sum of $6.

    Remember when new in shrink US titles were sold for $4 in the early 70s?

    Over the course of a few months probably in '74 or '75 I bought ~10-12 $6 import Beatles titles (UK Parlophones, German Odeon, and JPN Capitol iirc), all were dupes of US copies I already had, on advice from my brother and one of his record store friends. I'm thanking my brother to this day for that advice.

    Now if I could just convince him to unbox his collection from his basement....they still have a couple of school age kids so it will be a few more years before he has time and space to get back into serious music listening (or maybe he'll stick with the disposable digital music on the run lifestyle, and let me at the dusty old records...?? )

    In the 70's I didnt like shopping (esp @ Kmart) BUT, they had the bargain record racks ( 3/$1 ??) so I'd enjoy taking the OL there and pawing through their bins..ahh, the good old days....

    Perfect weather today....picked up these 3...I of course have these Moodies already, but these were better condition than my existing ones....and had read good reviews abt this "Trio" album and it was cheap, so ......

    Have been playing those 14 that I picked up last weekend...I have Abbey Road on the 2009 remaster CD set and am pretty familiar with it,,,,but sorry...I just like the vinyl copy better...sounds wonderful on the big a/d/s's
