Something in the Prog genre but a little more melodic for her today

This album is underrated in my opinion

Made in Japan

Deep Purple

2 Disc Gate fold, 1973 pressing cover VG, LPs mint

Reesale shop, think I had to pay $10 for this one, money well spent

These guys are on fire



Well... I was planning on having a quiet, lazy Sunday afternoon, having a nap, listening to some baroque Bach on vinyl... But then I came upon this post, which made me dig up "Deep Purple LIve In London", a BBC recording dating from 1982.

So now I'm rocking on Smoke on the Water instead, getting the evil eye from my teenage kids.


Edit: The concert dates from 1974, the LP was brought out in 1982, a re-master of the 1974 quadrophonic tapes. 

The last track is a wonderful 'You Fool No One'!

Don't get too blind

In case you have to get behind the wheel to pick up the grandkids somewhere......

This will carry me for a while Mr DJ. 

I've been missing mine for about six months now. Putting the tubes in the pc sound path have helped a lot. So I get how you feel, and you might like this one picked it up a while back myself!

Mine would do a very good recording if I only could... Analogue Productions or at least one of those Quality Pressings copy. Alas no modern hookups from the tt. Maybe the amp could do it though, my phono-pre bypasses the regular preamp.

I was just listening to Hocus Pocus by Focus on Radio Paradise, and thinking it would be amusing to ask someone unfamiliar with the song to sing along with the vocals.  Then I tried it myself, and it was pretty amusing.  Try it yourself.

I was never any good at yodelling 🤪


Me neither, but the song is so silly that just trying it makes me laugh.


I'm not familiar with Focus's other music, which may be much less silly.


And thanks for posting Tarkus.  That really is an iconic song/LP side.   I played it for my nephew and tried to explain why the inside double-width image doesn't need any words.  I think he got some idea of what I meant.

John Prine, Diamonds in the Rough

1972 Pressing, fantastic audio quality

Does Dylan sound like Prine, or the Reverse ?

Needle drops track 2, the torch singer


Not famous on the jacket: Jonathan Edwards, Cactus, Livingston Taylor


You can't find better audio quality than this record, I'm totally impressed every track.
