I have been a Mayall fan from the beginning and that is where I would recommend listening, ex. Bluesbreakers (Beano Album), Crusade, Hardroad,the stuff with Clapton and Peter Green on gtr. although Blues from Laurel Canyon is good, I just happen to like his earlier stuff better.

I love the sound of breaking glass - that was a good album. Ever listen to his stuff with Brinsley Schwarz, or his most recent stuff?

I just got new Monitor GS60s last week, so I have been having a religious experience going through my collection and will continue doing so for some time. To answer the thread, I have been consistently returning to Tom Waits' music, particularly "Mule Variations" and "Alice" both discs I am intimately familiar with and yet continue to discover things I like about their recording and production. Tonight I will break from Waits and move on to some or all of the following:

Panda Bear - Person Pitch
Duke Ellington - Live at Newport '56
Miles Davis - Sketches of Spain
Portishead - Third (if I get to the music store today)
Spoon - Ga Ga Ga
Bjork - Vespertine
Habib Koite - Baro

after moving 4 months ago, tonite i finally dug out my cds. took me a while to figure out which input on amp i had cd player connected to. but i did.

now playing is a self titled '03 cd 'delp and goudreau' by two of the founding members of 'boston', brad delp and barry goudreau. not much like 'boston' but nice a.o.r.(formula rock-as we used to call it), which i like. i dont believe this cd was picked up by a major label.

now that its playing, its pretty hot!! actually, some of the melodies and harmonies are reminiscent of boston but the execution is slightly different.

as many may know bradley delp passed on in march '07.

Thanks for reminding me!

I have the LP...I remember it was a good sounding album and I could hear that Barry Goudreau's guitar sound was what made Boston, sound good.

PS Now that I think of it, Goudreau had his own solo album too.

WOW!
great music, awesome gear! dynaco! i wish!
i do have and use older advents tho. love 'em!
post #233 of 11177
the doubles were made from my new large advents (bought new in '78 or so) and parts from the 'bay. a sheet of mdf for each 4-foot high enclosure and away we go! the dyna stuff was bought at a yard sale about 20 years ago for 25 bux, including a lafayette tube tuner. all i have ever done on the tube gear is replace the selenium stack in the power amp with a diode. all original inside.

WHOOOAAAH!

and

DROOOOOOLLL!

i just cant find the words.




my advents; i call them 'model ones' but im not sure what model they really are. there is no 'model name' label. just the little 'advent' badge on the front and a painted identical label on back in wire connecter insert area.
they're 2-way with a 10" and 1". appearence wise, they look '70s-ish.

to ID your advents. lots of good info on (mostly) vintage audio gear on AK. also, look here:

http://www.classicspeakerpages.net/I...hp?showforum=5

for more advent info.

a quick pic or two of the speaker in question might help too.

thanks!
2 things i dont have: cell phone and camera (digital or otherwise). yet!
too many other toys to get first.

edit-after looking at the ak site and review on 'smaller advents' i believe mine are those; based on 9.5" woofer and red/orange tweeter and brightness. cool! and 4 ohms, i didnt know that. figured they were 8.

i have 6 of them. only using 2 currently.
post #237 of 11177
those are excellent! they should have a "4" over one terminal and a "0" over the other. "4" being the positive side. i have one pair out on loan, and the parts for another pair waiting for me to build up another pair of enclosures.

anyway, sorry for the hijack. back to your regularly scheduled thread!

nope; a 0 on the left side and 8 on the right.
?
post #239 of 11177
AFAIK, all smaller advents were 4 ohms. and they all had the "spitwad" dustcap, too. back to the search for you!
