Pulp - Different Class

I got tired of looking for the pricey original so I gave it and got the 2016 reissue on an Import CD 20% off sale. It sounds fine to me even though some of the Discogs comments panned it.

Really surprisingly great sounding album.   I guess you don't always have to have APs or Tone Poets to get quality.

Stones Tattoo You

Playing a rough copy that I listed cheap.   This is actually a better album than I had remembered.   Little T&A was such a Spinal Tap track that I never took the album seriously, but it actually has quite a few strong spots.   It's also amazing how decent beat up vinyl can sound sometimes.

Billy Idol's first two albums.   I found them at the thrift.   They actually hold up better than I expected.

I have a copy of "Rebel Yell' here but I am saving it until I buy some Rebel bourbon to go along with it.   

Currently listening to 'Meditations for Piano' by Borah Bergman (Tzadik)     Nice music for the morning.

Natalie Merchant - Tigerlily

I finally got a hold of the vinyl.   I've read so many rave reviews that maybe my expectations were a bit too high.   It's very clear and articulate, but I would like a little more slam on the kick drum.

Kathleen Edwards - Back to Me.

If any of you guys are fans, she announced pre orders of her first album, Failer, today.   It was the only one I didn't have (because it was never issued on vinyl) and I couldn't be more excited!

She's so friggin' great.

Billy Bragg and Wilco - Mermaid Avenue

It seems that out of nowhere some copies of the 2013 vinyl showed up in a warehouse.   I've almost bought this for $80 more than once.   I was thrilled to get it from Plaid Room for $35 new.

The Glyn Johns Get Back from the new Let it Be box.   I had a bootleg of it years ago, it's nice to hear it sounding better than it ever did.
