Sometimes records need a couple of washes 

I have been known to apply detergent by hand and let it sit as the dwell time softens any debris 

Then use either or both the Ultrasonic machine  or the vacuum RCM 

 

Even new records will have debris

If you filed out a checklist for RSD just be aware you won't get any of them you like.  hahahahaha  They're getting all kinds of complaints from all over about the allocations to different areas so they're sending out the surveys to level out the deliveries.  Thunk on that one!  Hard to believe but look at the numbers of each and tell me about it  Ugh!

For me, the best live album is Scorpions' Tokyo Tapes (1978). In the early 1980s, a friend had this record (I think it was his dad's) and recorded it for me on a tape cassette. It was my introduction to the Scorpions, and I have always considered it to be their best album. I think it is very hard to find on vinyl nowadays, unfortunately.

 

I was listening to a jazz show on Belgian national radio and it was about the new 1961 album of Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers (see below). In the program they tried to explain why so many great live albums have been recorded in Japan: the Japanese audience is completely unprejudiced and unbiased, and in the case of Art Blakey, they treated them as the geniuses they are (while in other parts of the world they were often the victim of racism back in 1961). This positivity has an impact on these artists and they give the best they can.

What would happen if occasional members of Genesis, King Crimson, Asia, Yes, Frank Zappa & Weather Report all got together to form a unique team for just one night?" - Such an event did take place in December 1996 in Tokyo, Japan when Steve Hackett gathered together a group featuring JOHN WETTON (Bass / Vocals), IAN McDONALD (Flute / Sax / Guitar / Keyboards / Vocals), CHESTER THOMPSON (Drums) and JULIAN COLBECK (Keyboards / Vocals) to perform a wonderful set that featured classic Genesis, King Crimson and Hackett solo tracks such as "Watcher of the Skies", "Firth of Fifth", "The Court of the Crimson King", Shadow of the Hierophant", "Los Endos" and many more. Esoteric Antenna are pleased to announce the first ever triple LP vinyl release of "THE TOKYO TAPES" exclusively for Record Store Day 2022.
