Dwight Yoakum on vinyl is surprisingly close to an audiophile experience.

My wife & I got married in 1977, in time for the disco era. We took a class in disco dancing at CCAC Boyce Campus. I had 2 leisure suits, platform shoes and of course my iconic jewfro. During one of my smooth moves I knocked my wife on her ass.  She never made me sign up for dancing classes again

Thanks, PBJ.  I have been asked to take a class more than once and will remember your way out.

I am not afraid to admit that I still, at times, listen to the Bee Gees, KC & the sunshine band, and yes - Abba.  And I like Kenny Rogers' music.  That is the sad truth.

Abba sucks.  If When I go to hell, it'll be nothing but Dancing Queen playing on repeat in 128k mp3 format on bose speakers.  I'm already pissed, and I probably have at least another 30 or 40 years more to be pissed about it.

MacGeek...Glad to help

Captain...I'm with you. My favorite Kenny Rogers album is all duets with various female singers. I have the LP but it's on Spotify if you want to check it out

BJ...Glad to see your alive and well. Before I "go" I'm going to erase all my hundreds of tapes and record nothing but ABBA & The Village People on them just for you

Disco still sucks and I'm no country fan, but I have both (as well as Kenny Rogers and a few others that don't come to mind).  How about Bert Kaempfert, the New Christy Minstrels, Sing Along with Mitch and the TJB. I watched about half of Mama Mia before I realized it's all ABBA music (and I have them on a Laser disc).  And, let's not forget the Baha Marimba Band and Pete Fountain to name a couple more.

Yes.   Sad.

I was thinking more like Chic, Taste of Honey, or Earth Wind and Fire for disco or for country, Lyle Lovett, Shelby Lynne or Jason Isbell.

I do like Earth Wind and Fire and Average White Band etc ...  but don't know if I'd throw EWF in with disco....  certainly not along with Donna Summers and Abba ( I even hate typing the word Abba)  lol   Got more than enough disco bartending 3-4 nights a week ....  use to make at least $150 to $200 a night in tips though... people would be lined up around the block to get in and 10 deep at the bar which was over 70 ft long.... and the place was in Elyria OH west of Cleveland....called  Uncle Vics!  Great job bartending at a place like that for a young single guy! lol It was all free pour and they'd test your pouring skills once a week... off more than an ounce in ten shots and you looked for another job, but they paid $.75 an hour more than anywhere else....  hard work in my platforms  lol

Did a pre-geek meeting inspection of Jim's setup tonight.  The Clearquest turntable with the Maestro cart through Marantz receiver/KEF speakers sounds amazing. Listened to a very unique vinyl recording,  Duets w Rob Wasserman playing bass.  Amazing recording (listening to it again right now on my system).

The garage set up has a pair of Harman Kardon towers I had never seen or read about before - they sound very very nice. Jim has a Denon 3-head cassette deck going that sounds pretty good to me  :P:



Very nice - thank you for the listen Jim - will report on the Soundcraftsmen and the Yamaha tuner soon.
