Feeling guilty... Let me explain why. Some of you will know that in the past two years I started buying vinyl records again, new and used, and I was in need of additional storage. I used some apple crates up to now, but wasn't completely happy with those.

So this morning, we went to a local thriftstore, where they sell used furniture. I found exactly what I needed. A small, massive pinewood cabinet to store cds and vinyl records. I rolls on 4 wheels of a quality they don't make anymore. I used some wood re-newer on it to bring back its shine. It has a nice patina. I live in wood home, something quite rare in Belgium, btw, so it fits the style of our house.

So why guilty? In that thriftstore they charge per metre, so I paid €1.8 for it. That's not a typo, I paid less than 2 euros for it!

My teenage daughter cleaned out her wardrobe, so I'm going to bring the clothes she grew out of to the thrifstore, to set the balance right... Some of the clothes she wore just once... Imagine listening to a vinyl record just once... What a shame would that be.

Anyhow, glad with my new vinyl records storage cabinet on wheels.

Great find Melo!  Keep nosin cause everything you need is out there somewhere!  I'm ALWAYS perusing auction sites and fb marketplace for things.  My butcher block for the turntable, stand for over my sub and the 5 shelf oak shelves were ALL dirt cheap.  Just keep looking it's out there.  I sure hope I can get the next purchase cheap.  Got my eye on something you don't see every day.  It's old and a bit beat up but it's the real deal.  Now to buy it on the cheap!  I'll know next weekend!  :)  .

Wasn't that a stereo rack anyway? Looks about right to carry a small system, no?

Just spinning a copy of James Gang’s first release, Yer’ Album.  While I have the original pressing, this is the 1979 re-release with Joe Walsh’s name highlighted on the cover, since by then he’d gone on to more fame with The Eagles, after they asked him to join them and bring his rock sound, so they would be a bit less country.  It worked out well for both of them, since they released Hotel California a year or two later, which was a big success, as everyone knows.

 

I inherited it from a friend, and it seems to sound just as good as the original 1969 pressing, which I should play soon.  I first heard James Gang live, at the 1969-1970 News Year’s Eve concert/festival at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto called Winter Pop, starring Johnny Winter, plus 5 other bands.  For $6!  That set made me a Joe Walsh fan for life, and I’ve seen him play 8 times since then, with James Gang, with Barnstorm, with Eagles, and “solo”, with his own band.  Enjoyed every show!

 

Tonight, I checked the stereo’s volume level for curiosity, and 80-85 dB seemed okay, although 85-90 would have taken me closer to the concert experience, which was likely over 100 dB, especially since we were about a metre and a half (5 feet) in front of the stage speakers at that show.  Maybe over 110 dB, since at the time we improvised earplugs out of paper napkins because it seemed so loud.  Great, but really loud.

Joe and the boys?  The stories I could tell.  lololol  Give ya a hint @Islander look on the run out groove on your lp's for an inscribed comment from him.  That was how ya knew it was a first pressing back in the day before Discogs.  "Dat ain't no bananna dat's my nose" was one of them.  lol  Another about a death that I won't go into.  Can't say a bad word about him but when he says he's done at a show?  Trust me he's outta there.  Rare if he does an encore.   Bit different w/the Eages now.

I have been looking at replacing my Rush CDs with records 

 

So I have just purchased this particular title that the pressing is highly rated 

But need to wait a few weeks for it to arrive 

 

https://www.discogs.com/release/7278279-Rush-Moving-Pictures 

Fantastic!

Let me know how it sounds Paul. To me those DTMs have excellent mid-high range clarity and depth. Bass was lacking, I just bumped it up a little and my rig was doing that record to the best I'd ever heard. Think they rival half-speed masters.

 

Those LPs from 3-4 years ago... darn I could kick myself they are around $100.00 USD for single LP releases now. Glad my others were good enough to keep!!

Hmmmmm, just picked that Cannonball up in a remaster.  It's sitting here waiting to go on for a spin.  That's nuts!  😂

 

Was going to hit the forum and then throw it on and relax.  

 

It also almost hit the Linn last night.  Don't start that telepathic crap w/me Paul!  lolol  :)

Yup, he's still havin fun!  Great lp.  Not really a Willie geek but appreciated this lp more than I'd like to admit.  EVERYone is on it and the coolness factor is off the charts.  If you just take him or leave him you'll be hitchin a ride in no time with this one!  :)

Thanks.  I'll have to look for that.  The original pressing has a locked groove at the end of Side 1, in which a voice says "Turn me over.  Turn me over.  Turn me over."  again and again.  At the end of Side 2, the locked groove voice says "Play me again.  Play me again.  Play me again."  That was pretty unexpected in 1969.  If you have some stories that you're willing to share, but not in public here, message me.  You've got me curious now.

 

Yeah, even in the Seventies with Barnstorm, Joe didn't like to hang around for an encore.  When I saw him at the El Mocambo in Toronto (the same small but famous club where The Rolling Stones played. in 1977.  I was outside but unable to get in for that one.  Security was tight and the only fans getting in were those who had won tickets on a radio contest.), the fans were thumping and clapping after Barnstorm's set, but all we got was Joe coming out with a towel around his neck, telling us he was tired and he was done for the night.

 

The last time I saw him was a bit of a disappointment.  It was at a winery in Woodinville (that's not a typo), Washington, which had a large grassy area surrounding an open-air seating area in front of the stage.  It was a bit of a hassle getting there, because I'd taken the ferry, picked up a friend who had moved to the US, who was happy to be invited along, booked a couple of nights at a hotel, and arrived at the show quite a bit out of pocket, although the tickets were only $75USD, and you could buy wine before and during the show.

 

I was expecting a great evening, then we learned that he had fired the opening act a few minutes before they were to start, but he and his band were not going on early.   Maybe he wanted to wait for sunset, so the lighting was more interesting.  Anyway, his set started on time, and he did a good 90-minute show.  And that was it.  Our back-row seats were not great, and there was no photography permitted.  

 

This was in sharp contrast to the outdoor show he'd done at a casino north of Seattle in 2012.  That was a great week.  I saw Joe play in Victoria on the Tuesday, and at the casino on the Thursday of the same week!  I had front row seats for that one, and nobody objected when I pulled out my monopod and DSLR, complete with 70-200 2.8 lens.  I shot a solid 30 minutes of HD video at that show, plus took quite a few stills.  It was a fun evening.

 

The next day, before going home, we visited the Flying Heritage and Combat Armor Museum, which was located nearby, and it was a Sunday afternoon well-spent.  If I seem ambivalent about that particular concert, it's because that weekend cost me $1200CAD in total, much more than I had expected.  Naturally, I didn't expect my lady friend to pay anything, especially since I had invited her.  The next time I see Joe play, it will be on Vancouver Island, where I saw him play at an outdoor show in 2012 for $100CAD, at a venue only a 10-minute drive from my place.  I might go as far as Vancouver, but the ferry and obligatory hotel room plus meals (the last ferry is at 9 pm) brings the cost to at least $300 for most mainland shows, before even buying tickets.  Maybe seeing Joe live 9 times is enough.  I may just buy concert Blu-rays in future.
