As I was at the local mall today.I stopped into FYE and see they have a vinyl Rumours there for $21.00 bucks.Maybe I should set up a popup shop at the Mohegan Sun casino early of the day of Stevie's show there with all my extra copies of my Stevie/FM vinyl.I probably would make a killing .

A few new vinyl albums I've picked up over the past week or so...

Stevie Nicks Wild Heart (2 copies, as one was damaged).

Stevie Nicks Bella Donna

I've only had a short amount of time to listen to side one of Wild Heart.

Elvis Presley Showroom Internationale (2 LP set)

Recorded August 12, 1970. The show hadn't been released in full
until recently. Excellent cover shot. I'm really looking forward to
a serious listening session with this one.

This is the Elvis set I'm thinking seriously about now...

http://www.memphisrecordingservice.com/mrsms.htm

The Gene Clark set is finally on it's way, supposedly upgraded to 200g vinyl from 180g which seems more than heavy enough. I'm not sure what those mid 70s RCA flexidisc things were, 60g? Those things was weird, flopped around then sprang back flat.

I hear good things about those MRS releases. The only
complaints are from mostly hypocrites who own many
Elvis bootlegs and yet complain about these not being
legitimate releases.

I'm not sure the thicker vinyl makes for a better sounding
record. For me the 180g is enough. More than that I start
wondering about the height of the tonearm. I have many
of those flexidisc. By the time I was old enough to buy records
the industry had gone to that unfortunately.

I think the Memphis Recording Service releases are properly licensed for sale in Europe at least, like the German Bear Family label releases. They do a great job in quality but they are pretty expensive items to import unfortunately.

I think you're right. Guess the Public Domain is the difference.

STEVIE NICKS BELLA DONNA

Finally got a chance to do a serious listen to this late tonight.
As with all my new vinyl I look at it carefully using a bright
lamp to see if there are any imperfections in the vinyl. I saw
no scratches or scuffs.

As I'm listening to side one, I'm impressed. The vinyl
is quiet. Much more so than many of my "new" records.
I didn't compare it to my original copy as I have not cleaned
it yet. But I did like the sound I heard.

Then side two... PROBLEM

Happy with my new vinyl copy until Leather and Lace.
Some odd distorted crackling through much of the song.
As I listened to the rest of the album I didn't notice any
other problems of that sort. My hopes of a perfect album
came crumbling down. Again with the lamp test, and still
I couldn't see any marks on the vinyl.

Curious to whether any of you have the same problem on
side two?
.

I still have the original pressing of Bella Donna from when it first came out and after wearing out a cassette copy or two made it into the CD age without the need to get vinyl over again. Same for Mirage. There's been a real increase in demand for vinyl and I think fine details can get lost in the rush sometimes.

Becca, I think you hit the nail on the head.

A few new records I picked up this week...

Roy Orbison The Ultimate Collection (Sony Legacy)

What a fantastic collection of songs. A truly remarkable singer.
I would recommend this set to anyone who loves music. Besides
a few scratches on side A, the vinyl is one of the better sounding
of all the new records I've purchased. At times it seemed Mr. O
was sitting in the room with me. I've never heard Blue Bayou
sound so good. Chill bumps.

Elvis Presley Way Down In The Jungle Room (Sony Legacy)

A nice selection of songs from the last sessions Elvis recorded at
Graceland. A little salty language that surprised me was left on
here as he's still working through the songs with his band. I've heard
him use this type language before but not on a release for the general
public. But he's in a good mood here and puts on some very good
performances. Disproves some of the tall tales I'd always heard about
these recording sessions. I have most of the outtakes already from
these same sessions, but this set sounds very different from anything
I've heard before. And except for a few scratches here and there the
vinyl sounds good.

Jack White Acoustic Recordings 1996 - 2016

Haven't got a chance to listen to the vinyl yet (I have the CD)
but it looks like another quality job from United Record Pressing
NOT! Even though I didn't see the circled "U" in the dead wax,
it sure looked of URP. That doesn't guarantee a bad sounding
record, but it doesn't bold well. I've been down this road with
too many of their pressings. Will report back when I've had
time to do a serious listen.

On this past Wednesday I received two milk crates of albums from my friend down the street.Too bad there is no Stevie and Mac in this batch.Most were great R&B artists from the 60's,70's and 1980's like the Donna Summer,Patrice Rushen,Commodores,Minnie Riperton .Isaac Hayes.Chaka Khan and more. .Plus classic pop rock like Peter Frampton ,Beatles ,Chicago,Bruce Springsteen ,Barbra Streisand and more.Plus some classical and big band music like Glenn Miller 3 album set in almost mint condition. in the collection too.No Stevie , FM or Elvis in this batch.I'm surprise that he did not take the Beatles and the Glenn Miller 3 album set.

Also there was some press test records plus a couple of high school marching band albums from the 1960's.

Skip you're one lucky guy. The only time anyone gives me vinyl
is at Christmas.

I wish someone would make a decent quality 45 rpm record player
like they did in the 50's and 60's. If I knew how to work on them I'd
have one now. I think they're pretty cool.
