I've been buying a lot of jazz lately.

Archie Shepp
Cannonball Adderley
Grant Green
Miles Davis
Getz & Gilberto

And I just ordered that AB pressing of Steely Dan's Aja, and a Whiskeytown album. Picked up The Cure's Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me album last weekend when I was picking up the speakers. I got that Daft Punk record, too.

Can others view my collection on here? I've gotten through D, I think, plus whatever was added previously. And Discogs alphabetizes differently than my cataloging system, so there's some discrepancy there, too.

I love my iPhone, but it will never replace my turntable. I've never seen Titanic OR XXXXXXXXX. Alexa is a stripper name.

If anyone has been reading some of my recent posts about what I've been listening to, you'll see there's some Elvis Costello in there. I recently started diving into his early work and find it to be fantastic! It made me wonder why he wasn't more popular in the US? I read that in 1979 while on tour in Columbus, OH he made some pretty nasty drunk comments about James Brown and Ray Charles. That didn't help him win over the American audience I'm sure.

As for the early albums below, I have yet to come across a meh offering. Each album I've heard is mainly an upbeat mix of rock, punk, ska, etc. Fun fact, the backing band on his first album was a group called Clover which later became The News, yes Huey Lewis. On subsequent albums until the mid 80's the band was The Attractions, I am thoroughly impressed with their ability and find them to be great, especially bassist Bruce Thomas.

My Aim Is True (1977) - Still need to listen.
This Year's Model (1978) - Own
Armed Forces (1979) - Own
Get Happy!! (1980) - Own
Trust (1981) - Own
Almost Blue (1981) - Took a left turn here and went to Nashville and recorded a Country album. Haven't listened to this.
Imperial Bedroom (1982) - Own

Each album I own I recommend at least a listen. I'm happy I got into this, just wish it would have been sooner!

I can't comment on the Jazz stuff as I have only put a toe into those waters. That Aja pressing and Daft Punk Random Access Memories are great albums that sound top notch! I just heard a reissue of Disintegration by The Cure and it sounded ok at low-med volume but got pretty distorted when we went loud, disappointed in that one.

Yes, the Discogs link worked for me.

If you like Elvis Costello, dig into Nick Lowe and Rockpile. Nick produced Elvis' first 5 records, and wrote "What's So Funny 'Bout Peace Love and Understanding". Back in '11 he toured with Wilco as a solo acoustic opener. I saw 3 or 4 shows on that tour and he floored the crowd every time. REALLY, really good.

You're the second person to recommend looking up Nick Lowe, I'll have to do it at some point.

Wow.

So I ordered a copy of the Steely Dan “Aja” AB-1006 pressings from Discogs. I have about a half dozen of the AA-1006 pressing and have listened to this album probably more than any other.

This AB pressing is night and day different. I was expecting it to be a little better. I wasn’t expecting THIS. Holy cow.

That’s great! I’m not sure why the AB is awesome and AA is ok? All I know is that I love my AB copy of Aja and plan on keeping it for as long as it plays.

I haven’t heard AA so can’t speak to the differences. Is the AB just more dynamic?

Everyone’s heard it. Everyone’s said it. It’s the biggest cliche in audiophiland.

“It’s as if the proverbial veil was lifted off my speakers.”

The Steely Dan AB-1006 pressing must be what that was originally stated about.

It hits you immediately in the opening of Black Cow, that groove is ridiculous! That settles it, I’m playing it tonight.

@thrillcat , or anyone else for that matter, what’s your favorite track on Aja? Mine has to be the title track because the more I hear it, the more I appreciate the jam session in the middle. I also really dig Peg, fun song!

Josie is far and away my favorite song on Aja.

Like the funk vibe to it.

Second favorite is a toss up between 3...Aja, Deacon Blues, and Black Cow

I keep confusing my intentions with my abilities.

Nice! Deacon Blues is the rare song for me that I enjoy more for the lyrics than the music.

As a complete song, it’s hard to top Josie. But the vamp in Aja is straight up jazz . It’s the kind of thing I’d lose my over if I heard it live.

Ok, it's been a couple of weeks since I bought some records at Vinyl Cup. I enjoyed the in store experience but give them a fake email or email to someone you don't like when you pay, they send out a ton of fliers on sales, events, etc. If that sort of thing doesn't bother you, no worries then.

Nice! My favorites on RAM are Giorgio..., Touch, and Fragments Of Time, such a great listen. I don’t know the other album at all, like the cover though.

I am pretty sure you probably have heard the song "Feel It Still" by Portugal, the Man. It is used in several commercials.

I just like their sound overall.

Picked up a mix of used/new this afternoon. Hunky Dory is the new one, reissue from 2016. I would love a U.K. original but they go for a few hundred bucks...no thanks.

Sundazed is having a 50% off sale, older titles and pretty limited but thought I’d share. Isley Brothers looks interesting.

Only picked up one album this weekend but it was worth the effort.

Went to see the Iowa Wild sadly lose in the shootout to San Jose but afterwards was the DSM stop for the Dropkick Murphy's 2019 St. Patrick's Day Tour.
We had ice tickets and I have seen them every time they have been in the DSM area for the last 10 years.
After the concert, Ken Casey stuck around and signed autographs so I jostled my way to the front of the crowd and got my new album signed by the only remaining original member of the band.

@thrillcat , not sure about your setup with your new Hana EL cart and if it would benefit like my SL? In my system I notice the sound stage snaps into place with the tonearm being ever so slightly tail down. You can't tell it's tail down by eyeballing, just with a lined index card standing next to the headshell, and even then you really have to look to see that it's tail down.

That very subtle tail down compared to perfectly level presents a more 3-d stage, background voices/instruments seem to appear or float more than before. It's something I notice and love! It took a bit of futzing/listening/futzing/listening before I got it but in the end it was absolutely worth it.

Not sure if that's a system thing or Elliptical sylus (EL) vs. Shibata stylus (SL) thing? Just thought I'd share.

I don't have anything signed, not sure who I'd even like to sign one of my records? Maybe Pearl Jam, Elvis Costello, or Supertramp.

Interesting. I'll have to look into it when I'm healed. I spent Friday night in the ER having my appendix removed. Fun stuff.

I don't think I want to mess with any calibration in this state. I'm iffy when at full capacity. We know my track record.

I love my iPhone, but it will never replace my turntable. I've never seen Titanic OR XXXXXXXXX. Alexa is a stripper name.

When I read "appendix" I instantly thought of you being operated on by Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd in Spies Like Us, lol.

Not sure if the tonearm height can be adjusted on your table? If you get a notion to play around with it after you feel better, let me know. I wonder if it'll help or make it worse?

Hope you feel better!

Crazy about Marv’s. Too bad, Brian had just gotten things running and seemed to be doing well and enjoying it. Sending positive vibes his way.

Hopefully the new guy can keep it up. I liked the selection Brian kept on hand, but would’ve always appreciated a well-curated used section. What we don’t need is another shop full of Dan Fogelberg and Kansas LPs. I’ve not been to Vinyl Cup, but I have followed along on Facebook.

Sitting around recovering from surgery this week and listening to a lot of records. Took a couple better photos of the new towers with some good natural light in the room.

Also been downsizing my collection as I add it to Discogs. I gave about 350 duplicates and trash titles away to a friend a few weeks ago - she and her husband were the perfect recipients. They love the oddities, and I can’t think of many folks who’d be that excited to get some of the things in there, like Barbershop and 3 copies of Knockers Up. Basically I have 24 cubbies in my shelving. By the time the downsize is over it should be well under 16 of them, where it was 22 previously.

Agreed on not having another shop that's primarily filler. Although each time I go through the new arrivals in ZZZ, I walk out with something. This past weekend I found George Thorogood - Move It On Over and Genesis - Wind and Wuthering.

Holy crap Travis! I don't stick my head in here for a week and you've had surgery. I guess at least it's a fairly routine one. Finished up Ready Player One. Really enjoyed it and agree that both the movie and book are good. I can see if you loved the book not appreciating the changes made to fit a films run time, but I certainly enjoyed both.

Been slowing listening to the ELO discs I got for Xmas. Good stuff. Had a chance to visit ZLTFUL's place on President's Day and I really loved the balance he has with his system now. Just a very pleasing setup.

I figure some time in early April I'll bring up a John Wick showing in preparation for #3 in the main IA thread. See who wants to host what.
