Blue Note 1580 - flat out killer quartet date with Sonny Clark on piano, Paul Chambers on bass and Kenny Dennis on drums. Original pressing (owned for 35+ years).

Ha!  About time you surfaced brother!  Southern Florida rock?  Pffffft!  For you?  I almost gave up so today I've been flying solo!  FINALLY got to sit down and relax a bit.  Unzipping a few too!

 

RSD find of a previously unreleased lp of him doing a radio talk show in Cleveland.  Not too shabby either.  

Better than listening to the Cleveland Browns!

Dropped this off at the framer and she just finished it.  Gonna be a shrine in here when I'm done.  Bring your beads so you can run thru them while listening!  :)

Unplugged is a 1992 album by Eric Clapton, recorded at Bray Studios, England in front of an audience for the MTV Unplugged television series.  It includes a version of the successful 1991 single "Tears in Heaven" and an acoustic version of "Layla". It won six Grammy awards at the 35th Annual Grammy Awards in 1993 and became the bestselling live album of all time, and Clapton's bestselling album, selling 26 million copies worldwide.

The TD-125 is at my place in the desert where I’ve spent much of the Covid crisis riding it out - along with my old Fisher 500C and the Metregon. The TD-124 is in my main system with the McIntosh stuff (MC-30s, C-22, MR-71, MI-3) and the 1961 vertical horn Cornwalls (which sound BETTER to me than the Metregon). 
 

Both systems are great - just very different.

Me and my -ah- mother and father - and a grandmother and a grandfather - were driving through the desert, at dawn, and a truck load of Indian workers had either hit another car, or just - I don't know what happened - but there were Indians scattered all over the highway, bleeding to death. So the car pulls up and stops. That was the first time I tasted fear. I musta' been about four - like a child is like a flower, his head is just floating in the breeze, man. The reaction I get now thinking about it, looking back - is that the souls of the ghosts of those dead Indians...maybe one or two of 'em...were just running around freaking out, and just leaped into my soul. And they're still in there

I find it remarkable that the TD125 is so different in design and price, compared to the TD124.

@MeloManiac  See what ya started???  It's on YOU brother!  Had a few new ones here to unzip.  Don't know where I'm gonna put 'em though.  Gotta get another shelf up SOON!

Had this "best of" album ONCE!  Thinking @MicroMara must have borrowed it in his first life!  Released in 1969 after they split in 1968.

 

"Communique" released in 1979 hit the charts well in every country except the US where it peaked @ 11.  Proof that these Germans are clueless about what they're hearing since it hit #1 there!  😂

 

IMG-20210127-134026858.jpg

 

"Love Over Gold" seemed to start their true climb here in the US reaching 19 on the Billboard charts before being certified gold.  Mark Knopfler was gaining the recognition he deserved.  Even though it was only given a 4 of 5 star rating I, for the most part, enjoy it very much.  Knopfler is struttin his stuff and breaking away from his "norm."  Their 4th released in 1982.
