    Eric Clapton - Eric Clapton At His Best
    (1972, Polydor) STERLING RL in the deadwax; mastered by Robert Ludwig at Sterling Sound



    I needed to hear more EC after that last record, when I was wishing that Black Summer Rain would never stop. a 2 LP compilation here with tracks from early solo work including Blind Faith, "Eric Clapton", and Derek and The Dominos. listening to sides 1/2. with lots of heavy hitters including Stephen Stills, Duane Allman, Steve Winwood, and the others from BF and D&theD's.

    I've revisited Brewer & Shipley's TARKIO a couple of times recently (still looking for it on vinyl)

    Besides the 2 hits of "One Toke Over the Line" and "Tarkio Road" , there are some overlooked gems with "Don't Want to Die in Georgia" , "Seems Like a Long Time" and "Fifty States of Freedom" ...well worth tracking down ...I keep finding myself singing along to "Seems like..." , and that rarely , (a bonus for mankind) happens.

    Also the 11:45 pop masterpiece "Papa was a rolling stone" by the Temptations ( no, not by Keith Richard's son) ...its a forgotten wonder

    Oh yeah, also the remastered "Strange Days" ..by Jim & crew.

    Jimi Hendrix - West Coast Seattle Boy / The Jimi Hendrix Anthology
    (2010, Experience Hendrix) STERLING RJ in the deadwax; mastered by Ray Janos, Sterling Sound



    Disk 4 with w/ some killer previously unreleased tracks recorded Oct 1968, a couple of months after completing Electric Ladyland including Calling All The Devil's Children and Here My Freedom, which includes an unknown organist playing with JHE, believed to be Lee Michaels. Also mentions that a lot of Jimi's friends and acquaintances were in the studio sessions including Stephen Stills and Sonny Bono. First record on my new turntable, took dellivery this afternoon after having the cartridge installed by the audio pros. Sounds f'ing fantastic! (Rega P3-24 + Benz Ace cartridge + Herbies Mat)

    I hear you; I am missing the auto shut-off on the Thorens, but I'll live with it because this new setup is incredible. I am pretty sure that with an A/B you would hear the what this TT + cartridge is doing for the soundstage and tightened, extended low frequency output on the JBL 4430s. The Benz Micro Ace is an MC cartridge made in Switzerland. I wanted to put one on the Thorens TD-145 Mk II but the headshell would not support it without mods. Here's a picture of the Benz Ace, I saved a bit by not getting the latest model...

    record #5 with live April '69 recordings at the Forum in LA of the Star Spangled Banner/Purple Haze and another unreleased track from the Oct '68 sessions titled "Messenger". Side 2 is 20+ minutes of an April '69 jam session at the Record Plant studio in NYC with jazz organist Larry Young who played with Grant Green, John McLaughlin, and contributed to the Miles Davis Bitches Brew recording later in 1969.

    Tangerine Dream - Ricochet
    (1975, Virgin)



    Shifting gears to some Edgar Froese german electronic ambient music after the scorching Young/Hendrix jam session. Live album recorded in France and Britain. Lots of sequencers and synths create a dense ambient soundscape. I think I acquired this in a big collection in the last few years, I discovered it recently in the basement storage.

    The first of three records that the trumpeter did for Atlantic, Allmusic says this set falls between hard bop and the avant-garde. I can dig it. Albert Dailey on Piano. gatefold cover.
