I was actually looking for the CD version

This was running on and on and on in my mind...
(RAH)² (AH)³ + [ROMA (1+MA)] + (GA)² + (OOH)(LA)²

But couldn't find it in Gramaphone last time I was there.

Then today... saw it in Simply Music.

ps can I tempt you some more?

They claim it's still sealed in the box. S$120

Memory Lane was closed when I popped by earlier. Simply Music and NDV both said they didn't have :P

Roxy said they might have but he needed to search for it.

I am not picky abt vintage :) as long as it is in good condition.

Actualy i find old records sound better,more natural n all round performs better than reissued to me.. if u like Chuck Mangione..
the recording on "Chase The Clouds Away" album is way better than the "Feels So Good"..Am listenin to both albums now.. ;D

Good Recording sometimes mades u want to enjoy certain music that u think u normlly wont enjoy as they may not be as Main stream or popular or easier to accept..but it will certainly raises your music appreciation levels to nxt level.. :)

OMG..just heard the last track on "Chase The Clouds Away Side 2 track "Soft" the vocal is so clear & crisp.. no wonder,Noteon theback cover reads: "This record is recorded "live"in the studio without over-dubs or additional instrumentation."

Btw,his other album, :Children of Sanchez" is great too.

I share the same conviction as you.

Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: j45yip on January 30, 2010, 22:55
...the prerequisite for me is, it must be reasonably quiet and scratch free (no matter how minor). will let you know if i come across one. first pressing are always in demand because of the sound quality and usually cost more as compared to later reissues.
vinyl collection can be a costly affair.

Despite getting the record cleaned earlier at the shop, the last track (Soft) was still filled with some snap crackle and pops :(

That said, the recording is still pretty damn good on Soft. The female vocalist sounds so real and natural.

The surprise for tonight has got to be this:
(http://images.uulyrics.com/cover/c/chicago/album-chicago-17.jpg)

This isn't a new disc per se, but one I got used from Zenn a couple of months back. I never got around to listening to it cos it hadn't been cleaned but last Friday sent a whole batch to Roxy for cleaning and only got it back today.

Surprised how "thin" these old discs were but how amazing they still sound

Then I put in another from the same batch as Chicago...

(http://image.blog.livedoor.jp/omd5555/imgs/a/d/adaf5ebd.jpg)

Sadly this one sounded just bad.. maybe it's cos this was a very electronic infused recording but everything sounded like it was coming from the center like a mono recording. Not sure if it's cos the of the original mastering or if the record had been overplayed :(

Can't wait to get the Nitty Gritty to see if the Mangione and Jones albums can be salvaged.

Will go through more tomorrow :P

As part of my pilgrimage through the music of my teenage years, I picked up a whole bunch of 80s LP memorabilia at Zenn but only got to clean them this week at Roxy's...

(http://i546.photobucket.com/albums/hh427/thecathoderaychoob/Blog%20Pics/John-Parr-St-Elmos-Fire-34419-1.jpg)

This 45rpm single LP still sounds sooo good, it's unbelievable.

The drums just have an in your face presence that I love...

Good ol' Kenny G in his younger days..
(http://images.uulyrics.com/cover/k/kenny-g/album-duotones.jpg)

Both recordings still sound incredibly good today, despite their age and even their relative "thinness" compared to my newer recordings.

ps Roxy boss called.. he had forgotten where he found his copy of Feels So Good but his customer found it for him!! w00t!!

You mean the catalog number? Or the recording?

Chase The Clouds Away sounds like a live recording.. there's less processing, simpler mike-ing etc and there's more "you are there".

"Feels So Good" sounds like a recording.. the mastering is pretty good but there's more of a "pseudo" stereo effect not unlike the Beatles in Stereo where instruments are artificially redirected to one side vs the other. Not as obvious as in Beatles so not as jarring. IMHO.

You mean you just discover "CHUCK"?, oh nvm!, "Chase the Clouds Away" predates "Feels So Good", and FSG was his last notable work. "Chase" was played for the 1976 Summer Olympics, and theres was a live version.

Those who know "FSG", wil;l note that the LP version, which was also a radio edit in the 1970's, is different from his later verions, the one you hear on radio these days, and the CD release & his current performance. The "FSG" orginal from the 1970's, circa 1977, have an organic feel....that is much more acoustic...
Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: Doggie Howser on February 09, 2010, 16:42
There is a "vocals" version of FSG. I believe it was in the album dedicated to his father.

I was at Memory Lane last week, collecting a repaired amp, not browsing vinyl like you die-hards.

But I was somewhat bemused to see a guy inspecting a copy of Dark Side of the Moon, and he was 'complaining' to his friend that the round sticker with the title was stuck on the wrong side of the LP sleeve...  ;D

This was running on and on and on in my mind...
(RAH)² (AH)³ + [ROMA (1+MA)] + (GA)² + (OOH)(LA)²

Anyway.. part of my treasure trove from Zenn.. just played it today :P

(http://www.vinyltom.com/osc/catalog/images/williams_mason_handmade.JPG)


I first heard this song on the soundtrack of "The Story of Us", the movie of a couple that takes place after "I do". The soundtrack was by Eric Clapton and for the longest time, I attributed the performer to be Clapton. :)

Rest of the album isn't my usual genre but the guitar playback is pretty impressive.

I've it in first pressed and few others.  ;D LP is so addictive. My collection from 0 to about 1200 LPs now in less than 3 months. Have to clear all my books to make way for them as more to come.

I actually got cleaning machine before the flattener. Mine is the local DIY spin dry version which I find that it work the best for me. This DIY cleaning machine has many method of cleaning and it require some skill to get it right with different solution and brushes. Managed to master it and all my noisy used LPs sound as good as new after cleaning. Love it!

Talking about flattener, I've really bad experience dealing with Musiclink about it even as a regular. Not going to step into this shop for good. Those who're interested in it, you're better off getting from Modular Audio which provide better price as well as service even thought they're just a dealer.

Where did you get it from? Roxy? I find that even with Roxy and Simply Music cleaning, still got some snapcracklepops.. I still get that from new too, so now trying the NittyGritty 1.5Fi which has the vacuum feature as well.

I spoke to the guys at Simply Music and they said they stopped providing the flattening service. He claimed it didn't work well. Maybe cos they were using the older model which was not rated for 180g LPs like the new model you have.

FWIW, I found using a record clamp helps.

Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: ical on February 10, 2010, 11:30
Haha! The Dark Side is too strong to resist. Now I usually hunt for those first or promo pressed. Spend less time with my Stax now (with CDP only)  after converting to the Dark Side. Maybe I should have a TT on my Stax system too.  ;D

Ordered my cleaning machine through Sky Audio (great service!). It run very quiet so I can listen to music and clean at the same time. It's fully manual, not plug and play kind of cleaning as compare to those auto machines. Did check out others but none impress me other than Clearaudio Double Matrix which cost a bomb. Just don't like the idea of the platter that the clean and dirty side is rest on. Btw, you can pass me your most noisy LP and I can show you my magic. Just PM me.  ;D

Both Simple Music and NDV is using the same machine which is the older version which can't be use for 180g. Record clamp does help but not for the outer rim that tend to warp most of the time.

That was one reason why I got the Nitty Gritty. The only support is on the "label" area and it cleans the underside, not the top.

Wednesday shouldn't be a problem. Just let me know.

Btw if you're looking for LP cleaning solution, I highly recommended the Mint, as well as their brush. Thought price is slightly higher, they work wonders for me. Decrease noise and improve sound quality. You can order direct or get it locally at Modular Audio.

...the recording in particular. same sound engineer or venue? i think FSG sounds exactly what you would expect from a studio recording. will look out for the "chase the clouds away" album. i'm not sure how my copy (SP4658) of FSG differs from your early reissue.
i know what you mean wrt the re-engineered stereo from mono recording. this is exactly why i'm not keen on getting art pepper's rhythm session album. sounds weird and dis-jointed.

Yes, only way to ward off the "temptations" is to think BIG

Consequence is the only to go.........

You need to buy an average of 13 LPs per day to acchieve this.....or you simply buy up the whole store!!!

A friend once told me he was offered the entire catalog of a radio station in the US that was going out of business.  Something like 15,000 records... at a very affordable price (a few thousand USD).  He had to pass, no space to store that many.

Might have seen it at Gramophone at Cathay -- they have/had? a vinyl section at the back.  I remember thinking it quite 'retro' to see all those LPs; I'm pretty sure I saw Use Your Illusion II, I would have to assume they had I as well

Is the sibilance on this recording particularly bad, esp Rock You Gently?

At first I thought it was due to the Sumiko Blackbird cart I was using, but listening to it on the Denon DL103R also sounds the same.

This LP sound excellent on my system. No problem at all.

You might want to check your cartridge alignment and tracking force which make a big difference in sound.

Yes, got cartridge from CD Acoustic. While force gauge, protractor and etc from elsewhere. With proper tuning, a cheap TT can sound as good as those that cost much more . 

Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: Doggie Howser on March 01, 2010, 19:16
I guess it plays to read the manual.

I think Kevin from Turntable Solutions didn't fix the right counterweight for the cart and just used the default one that was already installed. It was sorta balanced but barely. I checked the specs of the Sumiko and attached the right counterweight, did some manual balancing according to manual, then adjusted the VTF accordingly.

The sibilance has been reduced by a fair bit. Oddly enough, from the second song onwards, the sibilance seems to be gone. I put the same track on the Denon 103R and the same sibilance existed in the same places.

I tried playing a bit by making the VTF higher but this Sumiko Blackbird is a bit finicky.. the sibilance seems less pronounced (still there) but if the stylus goes too far into the groove, parts of the cart itself comes into contact with the record itself. So had to keep it at 1.8

Not sure if you can see from this pic below where the cart assembly comes into contact with the record:
(http://www.azusadental.com/sumiko07web.jpg)

Maybe need to adjust the VTA but that's out of my depth liao!! From what I can tell, the tonearm tube is already parallel to the record surface liao

Since I got some free time, I decided to highlight where I encountered the sibilance. As you can see, not all the S's have this problem. Just the odd ones here and there. Just wondered if it could be the recording.

all your life love's hurt you
turned you out then burnt you
held you high off the ground
you touched the moon
then it dropped you down

I know your heart's been broken
trust don't come so easily
it takes time, that's all right
just let me heal your heart tonight

I will rock you gently
I will be there when the night comes down
I will rock you so gently
I'm gonna rock you gently
I will be there when the morning comes
I will rock you, rock you

late at night they haunt you
lovers' voices point you
back in time, wide awake
you curse the moon 'til the morning breaks
I know that lonely feeling
we are two hearts still healing
hurry here, hurry now
please come to me
let me show you how

I will rock you gently
I will be there when the night comes down
I will rock you so gently
I'm gonna rock you gently
I will be there when the morning comes
I will rock you, rock you

little by little, day by day
all through the night into the day
I'll be your lover, I'll be your friend
open up your heart and let me in

I will rock you gently
I will be there when the night comes down
I will rock you so gently
I'm gonna rock yous gently
I will be there when the morning comes
I will rock you, rock you

That's bad. For the price of your turntable, it should be set up properly before deliver. Even my cheap P3-24 is set up decently well by Asia Sound.

The recommended tracking force for Sumiko Blackbird is 1.8 to 2.2 grams. So it shouldn't be touching the LP within this range unless it's a faulty cartridge or problem with the VTA setting. I advice you to send it back to Turntable Solution to get it check. My Dyna 10X5 has the same recommended range as Sumiko Blackbird. So far 2g work the best for me, any lighter lack dynamic, any heavier sound too dark.  

Listening above track now, I don't hear a single sibilance. Sound so smooth and refine.
Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: Doggie Howser on March 02, 2010, 10:03
Yeah, I think it's kinda rushed that time. I know he did say to redo the calibration once the cart had settled in. In any case, I do think the Sumiko is known to be more detailed and more extended in the highs than most carts which may accentuate this. It also seems odd that the Denon DL103R also exhibits this. Guess another factor could be system matching. Will see what I can do with the help of more knowledgeable friends ;)

The recent review of the Sumiko Blackbird in hifiplus mag seems to be similar to mine. Increasing the tracking force improved the sound and bass but the front of the stylus hits the surface of the record if the tracking force gets too high.
Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: ical on March 07, 2010, 21:10
Guess you've no choice but to compromise SQ for it's poor design.  :-X So what's the maximum tracking force you can use within the stated range of 1.8 -2.2 grams?

I am back to 1.8 using an Acoustic Solid VTF gauge. Was running 2.2 (according to the manual adjustment scale on the tonearm previously).

Problem with sibilance solved. In a roundabout way. Sorta.

Was playing Best Audiophile Voices and encountered sibilance on one of the tracks that I knew I never had any issues before. The only major variable was the phono stage. I had switched to Allnic for a while now because I wanted to save some real estate on my rack and it had both MC and MM inputs and I could toggle between two TTs with the 1 phono.

It's probably not fully run in.

So I swapped the Allnic out since I am using only one TT now and put the Phono3 in it's place and sibilance gone even with Rock You Gently.

Is there a way to run in phono stages with a computer source? :)

 
Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: ical on April 18, 2010, 13:18
Glad that you've solve your problem. Just let it run in while listening will do. Mine doesn't has a on/off switch so I leave it on 24/7 in warm up condition since it doesn't consume much electricity.

been listening to the lp and saw the offer for the cd on amazon so ordered it a while back to be shipped to my friend's place in the us. He only got into Singapore this week and passed me this CD along with Chase The Clouds Away on CD plus loads of other crap.

Just put this in the Oppo83SE. And have to say something is missing. Some of the magic, some of that live feel and energy, I guess. I got the CD mainly cos I wanted to have it in my portable gear when I travel. Hope it sounds better with my modded HD650s. :)

Post by: ical on June 13, 2010, 21:13
Yes, those are really nice albums. :) That shop you talking about is more like a slaughter house!  ;D Even new release is so much higher than any of the shops at 3rd floor.  :-X

Actually I was at Adelphi from 5pm to 6pm. Too much temptation so can't stay for too long.  ;D  

Btw, heard from Kevin that HOT will be open daily. Guess it a full time job now.  :D

Wow bro I see some GG Allin there....hardcore man! I'm in Tokyo now, just got back to the hotel with some Earthshaker LPs, Exodus 'Bonded By Blood' and Raven 'Stay Hard'. All for S$36  :)

haha bro, I like GG Allin. This dude really nutcase! hahaha
But I think his vinyls sure jiat lat, raw brutal sound. Not for audiophiles.

Wah in Tokyo now, heard japan a really good place to hunt for records.
Shiok man, got Earthshaker, Exodus! Heard Exodus might be coming to Spore... hope deal pull through.
S$36 is real steal man for 3!

iCal, wah u also many damage! haha

skfong, ya adelphi must stay clear. But quite ex la, $50-$80 a piece.
Everytime u go Adelphi, u sure hoot!  :)

eyepower, yeah the new Morrissey not that good. But still too tough to resist buying a album by him.

So now Kevin turn full time already ar. haha
Guess word of mouth really play a big part in building biz.

Just received one last vinyl last night.
The National, High Violet.

Just bought this on eBay. Keith Jarrett's Belonging Sealed LP. With Jan Gabarek on sax and the rest of his European group. The album right before the classic My Song (which I bought last month at Adelphi). :)

http://cgi.ebay.com/Sealed-LP-Jan-Garbarek-Belonging-/230486482518

Bargained from $25 USD to $21 USD. This buyer has quite some other stuff on sale. Check out his store.

Bro, if you've never been there, and if vinyl shopping is on top of you activity list, then all I can say is that you'll be smiling when you're there. There's literally thousands on vinyls selling for 100yen (S$1.55) selling at Recofan...I tried browsing but stopped after 30 mins, just too tiring, and just concentrated my effort in the rock section, picking stuff that is less than 500 yen. Lots of 80s titles and old records, you'll probably pick up lots of goodies from there. If you're only looking for certain genres of music (eg: metal), just pop by Disk Union at Shinjuku and Shibuya. They have a whole floor that caters only to metal and rock - it's really awesome, and only $$ is the limitation. They had those really, really rare HMSS vinyls that is released in veyr limited quantities (typically less than 150 worldwode) that were selling for S$100...really tempting.

cool boy. i ever seen the plastic bag that printed recofan and disk union with some japan wordings and i didnt know they are having such good and rare stuffs with good prices... rock and metal are not my cup of tea  :P pop only  :-*

will surely get more info from you when the ticket is confirm, but that is not going to be so soon lo. :'(

Wow bro Kimo, shopping spree eh? I've been thinking of getting the XX - I bet the Intro will sound fantastic on vinyl, with the deep bass. Just make sure the LPs are all cleaned to bring the best out of them man!
Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: kimotherapy on July 10, 2010, 22:03
Ya shopping spree but not at a go la.
Bought them over time... finally today got time to post n share photos.
Damageplan! haha

U should get The XX, even though their music is very slow.
The Intro sounds great! The guitar strings... one word, feeling bro!

here's one more. Went to Adelphi just now.
Bought from New Disc Village. Just couldn't resist this.

I'll definitely get The XX bro....just a matter of time and waiting for the price to be more attractive.

And Muse...resistance is futile man. The LP sounds phenomenal. Was just rocking out to Plug In Baby the other night, it was awesome. Should get all three bro  :)

Bro, the XX is  must get! How can you not have it in your collection.  ;D Btw, you're still short of Muse's The Resistance and Black Holes & Revelations.  :-X


Wah bro kimotherapy, you must be winning a lot of money from this World Cup. ;D Nice collection there.  :o Bro naglfar is right about clean LP. Even new LP is not always clean. A record cleaning machine is a must for all vinyl lovers. Time to invest in one.  :)

Sooner or later bro, The XX will be in my collection. As for Muse, I have vowed, as far as possible, not to double dip. Already have Resistance and Black Hole on CD, so won't go vinyl on those.

...Even new LP is not always clean. A record cleaning machine is a must for all vinyl lovers. Time to invest in one.  :)

This is so true - there is a definite improvement in sound after you properly clean a new LP. Bro Kimo, time for a RCM man!

Bro ical, I have all the MUSE albums on CD. from debut album Showbiz to latest album Resistance.
Love the Muse, even bought the Resistance poster n tour tee when they came Spore.
But I couldn't resist buying Origins of Sym LP when I saw it today. haha
And I saw Pantera, Cowboys from Hell... so tempting.
Will consider buying all the LP all over again. Resistance is really a great album.
LOL And no win $ from World Cup... actually still down about $100+ haha
Hope tonight and finals can win back.

Bro nagifar, XX great LP to own.
No $ to buy record cleaner leh.

haha bro, It's ok not to know. Just like I know nuts about Jazz music.

But yeah, u can try out The XX.
Not the heavy sort of band. Very chill type of music. Saw them when they came to Spore at the Esplanade.
Muse might be slightly heavy to u... though not as heavy as some of the LP nagifar is listening to. :)

Bro Kimo, you should seriously consider an RCM. I never thought it was important until bro iCal demo to me how a properly cleaned record sounds like. Needless to say, I was a proud owner of one a week later. Now I clean 2-3 records per night after work, quite therapeutic and satisfying...

Bro naglfar, your system now sound good too. Yes, funny is cleaning LP can be quite enjoyable and addictive. The feeling of seeing LP nice and shiny is good. ;D


Bro naglfar & kimotherapy, you guys can consider this Muse The Resistance boxset. Roxy Record at Excelsior still has a copy. It's getting rare now so grab it while you can. ;)

Thanks for the recommendation bro iCal. I considered it when it first came out, but I've firmly decided not to. Plus, I have a bunch of LPs coming in from Amazon Germany, and also just ordered another 4 from Finland today for some metal stuff. Also have some in my Amazon UK shopping basket also...  :P

This is my first time ordering from Amazon Germany. In terms of LP, the shipping is CHEAP! They charge 14 euro flat for up to 10 items I think. I ordered 6 LPs and shipping was 14 euro - that's is really really good price to ship 6 LPs!

Need to control a bit now....
Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?

broke leh.

The Resistance boxset is damn nice! But I have the CD already.
Don't think will double buy this again with the CD. Most will just get the normal LP.
Today kena buy one more LP again. Jiat lat. Need to stop.

The local made T-Rex cost <$500. Cheap and very good. You can order from Sky Audio.

Better sound quality should be due to the fact that it's 45rpm.

Actually ALL their releases are available on vinyl bro. It's just hard to find. I used to hang out with the vocalist some time back, and I know he's a vinyl freak and has quite an impressive collection. Skullf**king Armageddon (under Iron Pegasus) and Kaos Kommand 696 (under Osmose) was released in very limited quantities and are very rare. It was just too bad that I wasn't in my 'vinyl phase' when those came out...now regretting not getting hold of those!

More metal mayhem on vinyl...just collected another 4 from the post office this morning...

Beherit's 1st two, re-released by Finland's Primitive Reaction. And grindcore legend Repulsion "Horrified". Had a chance to spin Repulsion after cleaning it just a while ago...wow...the low bass rumbles, snare drums rattling and chainsaw guitar sounds so full and lively on vinyl, so unlike the CD.
(http://img825.imageshack.us/img825/8127/img0778.jpg)

And this is my LP of the week - Swedish black metaller Watain's new masterpiece "Lawless Darkness". Triple gatefold with a thick lyrics booklet attached, 2LP with a huge poster - killer packaging! And this 4th album from Watain just takes the bar up to another level. If you're a metal fan, you need to give this a listen. Terrorizer magazine (from UK) gave this a 10/10 rating.

guys sorry never intended to bring up the increase of $$ by the store in northstar. but heng lucky all of us 'feel' the same.

to answer kimo. nope. i didnt bought anything. wanted to. just that i find the price, certainly, not so right. so i manage to control my nerve and walk out empty handed  :'( :'( :'(

agreed, i will think twice to my 3rd visit due to the distance + the increase of prices

Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: kimotherapy on July 25, 2010, 13:45
yeah used LP range was around $20-$28, bought a few during that price range.
Now up to $30-$44 for used! Unless rare 1st press LP, then collectors won't mind paying.

I feel it's a bad move, considering the location of the store.
What attracted people to travel there in the 1st place was the reasonable pricing.
But then in biz, maybe that area less traffic n walk in, need to cover rent, generally got to increase price a little.


will probably go down next month to check out the new stock.

On another note, If you guys are on facebook.
Do join the Singapore Vinyl Junkies facebook page :)
I started a page there, for fun la.

Hi guys, just got a clarification from Kevin from HOT. He read our comments, and wanna explain la.
The slight increased was due to higher cost for that batch of 2,500pcs of LPs which just came in.
Plus he clean n pack every individual LP, and all the effort to keep the LP as mint as possible.
There u go, the man has spoken :) Appreciate that he actually called and gave an insight.
Thumbs up!

Nonetheless, you are your own judge to part with your $ :)
Will still pay him a visit real soon.

U don say. I went to view a pair of spks here a few years ago. Seller said "in pristine condition" When I checked at his place, spk top got scratches and even ink marks!  ;D So far, all the ang mo vinyl sellers on ebay either graded their records accurately or undergraded them. Or perhaps ang mo sellers of metal and punk vinyls are more honest than those selling jazz or classical vinyls?  ;D

You deal with Brits most of time I guess?

Usually I buy from ang moh sellers only if their used stuff are graded EX, excellent or above. I will stay away from “VG” stuff. And those who grade their stuff “Top Zustand”, I ask. ;D
I’m not too fussy about condition but one thing I can’t tolerate is the cut-out copies. That happen mostly on CDs though.
 
Jap sellers are honest about their stuff. And they sure know how to maintain their records in top condition (eg, minimal ring mark). And their packaging skill is no horse run too. They understand nobody likes to receive their records with bend corners.

Bro Kimo,
Very nice collection of Turbonegro LPs! I thought I am the only one here who listens to Turbonegro - indeed our taste in music is very similar. Scandinavian Leather is pretty awesome, but unfortunately I think Retox is a letdown. I was lucky to see them play live when they were touring the US a few years back - they are an awesome live band! If possible, you should try to get hold of their undoubtedly brilliant Apocalypse Dudes...I have the pink vinyl version from Man's Ruin, got it way back in 1998, so didn't pay a bomb like the ebay prices now... :)

(http://img717.imageshack.us/img717/6099/img0788oi.jpg)

Here are some of my recent purchases...Archgoat's "The Aeon of the Angelslaying Darkness" 2LP in digibook format (freaking awesome cover!), and The Gathering's "Nighttime Bird" and  their classic "Mandylion" in transparent vinyl, both limited 500 copies worldwide from Svart Records.
(http://img148.imageshack.us/img148/1576/img0791p.jpg)

Immortal's "Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism" in gold vinyl (limited 200 copies worldwide), and October Tide's Rain Without End (a must for Katatonia fans!)..

Bro SK, I don't think you are lost anywhere man. Our musical tastes are different, and perhaps it is bro Kimo and myself who have ventured way beyond mainstream boundaries of music and end up discovering gems like Turbonegro. Anyway, they are a Norwegian punk band (well, they labeled themselves death-punk!). Music wise, it's basically garage rock with killer riffs and kick-ass attitude, and I guess the glam outlook of the band helps in selling their records and attracting new fans. Apocalypse Dudes was released in 1998 and got many glowing praises and reviews. They disbanded for a while, but reformed again to released Scandinavian Leather. During its first week of release, it took over Madonna's Ray of Light as the #1 selling record in Norway - not band for a punk band!

Jagged Little Pills is an awesome album with many brilliant songs - if I could find the LP, I would definitely grab it. I wonder if Jagged Little Pills acoustic is available on LP....I have the CD and I totally love the production!

Bro to 'commemorate' the 10th year anniversary of Jagged Little Pills, Alanis released an acoustic version of album some time back. All the songs were re-recorded in the studio in the 'unplugged' style, no electric guitar. It is quite awesome. I only have the CD, I don't think this was ever released on vinyl.

Still thinking about Exodus bro. Don't dig the venue. Yeah, I'd love to see Maiden play. I've seen Slayer play before in the US - they played the whole set of Reign In Blood. It was awesome. Lamb of God too, and also Dimmu Borgir, Kreator, Nile, Necrophagist, Suffocation, Dillinger Escape Plan, to name a few. Though I must say that the best live acts that I have seen are NOT metal bands. Turbonegro is a really good live band. I have also seen The Hives, and International Noise Conspiracy - they're really energetic.

Hi Guys,

I am new to this section, I did not note of this section ever since came onto this forum... kekeke, have always only browse on the for sale section ;-)  Nice reading on LPs collection that most of you have here :-)

I just got back into LPs, last year and have been going around to look for LPs... from Zen Audion, Roxy music @Adelphi and CD village at Adelphi too.  Any other place anyone can recommend me to?

Hi iCal,

Was like small kid go candy store like that, like his place, it's cosy.

Nope, the Unplugged is not first pressing... I bought it new from Ernest, got it last year.

Bro Kimo, how do you like the new Arcade Fire? My first impression was a slight disappointment. Even when Neon Bible came out, I was hoping that it would be a Funerals Part 2, and like The Suburbs, it wasn't. Need to give it more spins...

Bro naglfar, the Prince of Darkness!
I didn't like Neon Bible that much. But I actually like this Suburbs album.
Of course, Funeral was the best. Don't think Arcade will ever top that album.
Yeah, I think u give it a few more spins... should be able to win u over with this one. haha

Bro, U listen to Sunn O)))?
Finally managed to get their LP on ebay. haha

Prince of Darkness?? Ha ha..you make me sound like Dracula. Yup, I'm giving it more spins.

Sunn O))) is crazy heavy man. I'm not really into drone and stuff - to me, those are REALLY REALLY slow, doomy and sludgy and requires you to be be in a certain state of mind to fully appreciate this genre of music... :)

The slowest I do is Cathedral's Forest Of Equilibrium....

Hatebreed is coming!

Oh ya, will u be buying the Slayer 10LP boxset. That one so tempting!
Coming out soon.

Nope, quite confirmed I won't be getting the Slayer boxset. I already have all their CDs (mostly first pressings), and I only really enjoy their earlier works, up to Seasons In The Abyss.

What I will definitely be getting is Pelican's 10LP wooden boxset. This one will be crushing!

Some new stuffs:

Wormrot - Abuse and Brutal Truth - Extreme Conditions Demand Extreme Responses
(http://img822.imageshack.us/img822/4176/img0802g.jpg)
The Brutal Truth album is a classic that needs to introduction if you're familiar with the genre. This is the 2LP re-release by Earache. Wormrot is a local Singapore band -  and I have to say, this is one of the best grindcore album that I've heard in a LONG time. "Abuse" has has been getting very good reviews and praises by the metal community worldwide. Also recorded at the local TNT Studios, pretty good job by Ah Boy. So 100% locally brewed! This LP is the first pressing, released by German's TVG Records. Wormrot has just signed to Earache, so you'll also be able to get the Earache version that comes with some extra demo tracks. Short, fast and loud - it is just f**king awesome, and if you're a metal fan, you owe it to yourself to at least try them out!

Nothing much to shout about on the latest Trivium release. Personally, I prefer Ascendency. But this is a decent metal album, filled with nice riffs. A friend was letting this go cheap, so might as well...

Faith No More's The Real Thing, IMHO, is a 90s classic!

Received 9 LPs in the mail today  ;D

Some mainstream stuff - Massive Attack, The XX. Wow...The XX really sounds awesome on vinyl. The bass and the guitar reverb on the "Intro" track really fills the room.
(http://img829.imageshack.us/img829/4381/img0805ol.jpg)

The new Spiritual Beggars LP (just out last week in Europe), The Sword (clear vinyl) and Witchery's new LP. Great new release by Witchery - can't go wrong when you have Patrick Jensen (At The Gates' guitarist) churning out tons of awesome thrash metal riffs to fill the album! What surprised me was that Legion (Marduk's vocalist) is now handling vocal duties, giving Witchery an overall more aggressive and extreme edge.
(http://img707.imageshack.us/img707/4483/img0806to.jpg)

Some black metal from Deathspell Omega (Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice just re-released by Norma Evangelium Diaboli - get it quick before it goes out of print again!), and also Deathspell Omega / S.V.E.S.T split LP.
(http://img690.imageshack.us/img690/2186/img0807kc.jpg)

And this has to be my album of the month - Teitanblood's Seven Chalices. 2LP. Another excellent release by Norma  Evangelium Diaboli. Damn, I didn't know music could sound so evil. To quote a review..."Seven Chalices" sounds like it was recorded in Hell and produced by an eldritch beast that killed Lucifer and carved a throne out of the Devil’s corpse in order to rule over all damnation, and said beast has 12000 screaming heads.... - a spot-on review. Extreme metal fans have to give this a listen...

The XX album is of my favorites this year. The Intro is great track for testing hifi and headphones. I know this is e lamest question here but I have it on CD. Does it sound even better on Vinyl?  I used to get LPs when I was in Secondary school and with the coming with CDs, I gave up on the hobby

Bro, I have the CD too, and like you, I have been using the Intro track to audition for speakers and headphones. It definitely sounds better on vinyl. The bass has more depth and roundness to it, and as guitar sounds warmer, while retaining all the transients.
Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: westendboy on September 02, 2010, 13:07
Thanks for e reply. It's just too expensive to get back into LPs. I have a lot of 80s stuff on LPs and I do remember the bass being deeper and the sounds do feel more 'real' like. Nowadays, my hifi budget has shifted to Blu rays.

Totally agreed with this one. I got The XX on vinyl as well.
Not only the Intro sounds damn good, and good for auditioning speakers or turntables.
Other songs sound real good. Songs like, Crystalised, Heart Skipped A Beat and VCR.
I love how the guitar strings sound in this record. Brilliant.

Bro, your music getting darker and evil. You are indeed the Prince of Darkness.
No doubt. I see Teitanblood cover I also scare.
I have said this, but I wanna said it again. I need to go your place and check out your collection soon.

Got a few pieces of Andy Gibb too... :-)

Shiok man those DM vinyl! nice collection.

Just went to HOT just now.
Managed to find Sinead O' Connor used vinyl.
And found a used HouseMartins vinyl.
Pretty good deal for those 2 purchase. Got 10% off, so quite alright.
And finally got my Pro-Ject record brush, and liquid cleaner. 10% off for those as well.

Bought some outer sleeves. I like their outer sleeve, thick plastic sleeve. Cheap and good.

Saw some Madonna used vinyls as well, True Blue, Like A Virgin.
Eagles, Prince, Rolling Stones, Elvis. If u like those, can go check out.

Hi Kimotherapy,

:-)  I will be heading there over this weekend too, Kevin has kept a Spandau Ballet Singles for me :-)  I like his other sleeves too, planning to get some from him.  I knid of got tired of the ziplock style over covers I am using now... will not top up any of these though.

Are the Project brushes better then the normal ones we can get?  HAve you made comparison on both before?  I have been quite tempted to get the Project brushes too, when I was at HOT last Saturday.

I am using the sleeve from New Disc Village. Only $16 for a pack of 100, so price is good. This is the version with adhesive on the flap, but I usually cut the flap away because very leceh to tear open every time I wanna spin. But the plastic is very clear, which is what I really like.

Bro, yes it can be used for gatefold. That's the reason why I bought it. I have even tried it on a triple gatefold, fits nicely.

Hi SK, this is the copy that I have to spare ;-)
If sell, it will only be $15
If trade.... I really don't know what to trade... there is something that I am hoping to find... but not sure if it was ever on LP, but I think it should be... it would be Gary Moore - Still got the blues... :-)

Great prices on the 80s stuff - with the exception of Joshua Tree, everything else is $8. Will definitely spend more time there next weekend and have a closer look at the 80s stuff that I grew up listening to. It's Top of the Pops all over again.

Karma Chameleon and Hold Me Now sure sound amazing on vinyl...

Bro nagifar, the outer plastic sleeve $16 for 100pcs at New Disc V, cannot find leh.
I wanna get that outer sleeve for some of my gatefold, 2LP.

Only saw the Mobile Fid sleeves 50pcs for $32. Which is quite reasonable. Bought that for my prize vinyls. haha
And also bought the normal paper inner sleeves to replace my older records inner sleeve.
That one is $25 for 100pcs.

Some new acquisitions...

(http://img823.imageshack.us/img823/880/img0841bq.jpg)
I've has a few version of the Skid Row CD, but nothing comes close to the vinyl sound. I Remember You is one of my all-time fave power ballad! On the right is Saigon Kick's "The Lizard"...took me quite some time to find this one.

(http://img810.imageshack.us/img810/6971/img0838f.jpg)
Some old school metal...Kreator, Sodom and Carcass' "Necroticism..."

(http://img826.imageshack.us/img826/5753/img0839r.jpg)
Some Unplugged vinyls from Ebay (Korean pressing). Unfortunately the Clapton vinyl had pops and crackles that simply refuses to go away....the unfortunate downside of Ebay purchases....

(http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/1699/img0842r.jpg)
And my fave LPs of the week! Bought the Streets Of Fire OST mainly for one song - Tonight Is What It Means to Be Young, and it was well worth it! Reminds me of how hot Diane Lane looks in the movie. And Tears For Fears' "The Seed Of Love" - Woman In Chains is a truly brilliant number.

(http://img31.imageshack.us/img31/3547/img0844kf.jpg)(http://img163.imageshack.us/img163/6959/img0845x.jpg)
Released by Nuclear War Now. Cult US death metal band's demo released 2LP. Comes with backpatch, hardcover and booklet with band pics and history. One of the best LP packaging I've seen.

Some fine death metal from Scandinavia - Terrorama's "Omnipotence" and the cult Demigod LP "Slumber of the Sullen Eyes".
(http://img693.imageshack.us/img693/5940/img0846d.jpg)

Old-school death metal from Malaysia - Brain Dead's demo and first and only release "From The Ecstasy" on LP.
(http://img94.imageshack.us/img94/3672/img0848qf.jpg)

and lastly, some savage thrashing black metal from South America - Morbosidad, Perversor and Death Yell. Those artworks alone are worthy of the LP prices...

yeah Exodus was pretty insane! But the sound wasn't that good.
Whole mess of distortion, and Bob's vocals drowning in the mess.
Sound could have been better if the venue was made for gigs.

Some new stuffs...some happier and sunnier music :)

Gaslight Anthem
(http://img829.imageshack.us/img829/65/img0850im.jpg)
Up and coming American band - reminds me a little bit of of early Springsteen. Very well written tunes, great melodies and nice guitar works.

Fleet Foxes & Kings Of Convenience
(http://img707.imageshack.us/img707/5379/img0851a.jpg)
For some reason the more I listen to Fleet Foxes, the more I like them. This is not the normal kind of stuff I listen to - they're sort of country-folk with awesome vocal harmonies. Kings of Convenience are really Simon and Garfunkel worshippers - it's very evident in their musical style, with a modern twist.

Having bought quite a few LPs over the past few months, I come to the realization that those older titles (especially the 80s and early 90s) sound WAY better in vinyl format. Those newer recordings just don't cut it. I was just listening to the new John Mayer, and the difference between the CD and vinyl isn't like day-and-night, then say, listening to Survivor's The Search Is Over. Any bros can comment?

I share the same observation as you.  In fact, when I listened to a re-issued Police Synchronicity LP and the same LP (second hand  copy) from the 80's for an example, it was day and night.  I sort of gave up buying new LP or re-issued LP whenever possible.

Post by: naglfar on October 05, 2010, 11:18
Bros, I'm not just talking about reissues or newly remastered LP, but newer releases in general. I gave an example of the new John Mayer "Battle Studies". The LP also came with the CD, and when I did a comparison, the audio differences between the 2 formats isn't as great. This being the case, I would prefer to play the CD as there's much less work and maintenance. I think moving forward, I will just buy new releases in CD format, and for older stuffs (80s and early 90s) in vinyl.

Regarding the remasters and reissues, in general I do agree that those do not sound as good as the earlier pressings. However, I have encountered exceptions. I thought the recently released Madonna's Celebration 4LP sounded pretty darned good, especially her earlier songs like "Like A Virgin" and "Crazy For You". Way better than the CDs that I have. The funny thing is that on the same LP, her newer tracks like "Hung Up" and "4 Minutes" just doesn't cut it in terms of sound, which goes back to my earlier point that all the newer releases just doesn;t sound good on vinyl. Maybe Pro Tool and vinyl just doesn't go well together...

Post by: jeromelang on October 05, 2010, 11:57
re-released vinyl LPs are increasing almost exponentially and in the rush to satisfy demand, a lot of new LPs are being cut direct from CD.
it had been reported in british mag (directy from the technicians making these re-issues) that record labels are doing exactly that.
none of this is likely to be divulged in between the restored artwork that accompanies the freshly printed black discs.
the '80s retro culture is in full swing and no one really wants to spoil the party. can't blame them.
after all, a cd produced from an analogue tape 25 years ago might now be a better representation of the original than the tape itself.
sadly, not all analogue masters have been stored with care and commercial foresight unlike the beatles back catalogue at abby road.
in the rush to supply re-issues of fave albums from the '70s and '80s, and with the original tapes either mislaid or unusable, an early CD copy might be all that remains of their legacy. only problem is the digital limitation of the CD is still being copied onto vinyl when that CD is the LP's master.

Bros for me ultimately what matters is the sound quality....ok ok sometimes I do buy the LP version because it looks damn nice :P

Anyway, if the vinyl sound is so-so only, I would rather just get the CD...which is what I will probably be doing from now on...so much more convenient.

ya lor, so personally preference la.
I only buy vinyl n cd if the bands/artists is my liking or are classics worth collecting be it 1st press or resissue.
Sigur ros, metallica, smashing pumpkins, ride, slayer, oasis, suede, teenage fanclub, sonic youth,... you get the drift.
If not, won't even bother buying, just DL. LOL

Just got this blue vinyl double LP re-release by Back on Black. Disappointed is d word. My In Flames cds sounded better!  :(

It's unfortunately that the Back on Black vinyls are a hit-or-miss affair. I have most of the early Megadeth, Death and Cannibal Corpse releases on BOB - some sounds decent, some is below par. Megadeth's Killing Is My Business sounds really lame, but Cannibal Corpse's Tomb sounded quite awesome. The only plus point is that their packaging is quite awesome. They will be re-releasing Witchfinder General's 2 LP, and Abattoir's Vicious Attack (excellent stuffs!), I guess need to wait for some reviews first before deciding on the purchase.

About WFG, I think those late 90s’ CD reissues from Heavy Metal Records are good enough. Not to forget HM Records also released the original LPs for WFG in the 80s. On “Death Penalty” CD, the sound is just as good as, if not better than, the original Japan pressed CD.
But if you insist of getting the vinyl version, you might wanna check this out:
Witchfinder General DLP boxset (released on Buried by Time and Dust)
The people behind this independent label are dedicated Metalheads who put real effort in their works.

You can write to Shaxul Records. I think they still have some copies in stock. You can find the email address in http://www.shaxulrecords.com/about.php
It’s a small shop based in San Francisco and they also provide mailorder service on their website. Do not put off by its “amateurish” web layout. The humble guy who runs the site is 100% reliable.

I did think about getting the Coheed and Cambria, but I didn't really like No World For Tomorrow.

Remastered HQ180g vinyl on Swan


oooo..... I love this album, the vinyl of mine is a little worn out... still waiting for the new piece that I ordered to arrive... I bought the Japanese press CD of this album from NDV, it is a lovely copy too.

I have listened to both the remastered cd (Swan label) to this LP, u know wat, the cd sounded more live than the vinyl. The vinyl sounds like studio recording, warmer. Both very good SQ. The LP on Island was quite ordinary by comparison

Thanks for the sharing :-)  The LP copy that I have currently, in comparison to that with the Jap press CD I have (Swan label), I agree so.  But the LP is a little worn out...   The more I listen to this album.... the more I love the beat, truly well recorded copy ...

Looking forward to the new LP to come... NDV has ordered for me :-)

Better sound quality should be due to the fact that it's 45rpm.

Btw do check out the rest as well. These 3 albums cover almost all his songs.

My 20 Golden Greats is UK pressed. Guitar Tango and Foot tapper are my faves from there. Foot Tapper is a killer track for test of PRaT. Very difficult to play well unless system has pace, coherence and rhythmic abilities.  Thankfully my present sys makes this track sound so catchy and beautiful.

But it was a journey to get here.

Forgot to mention that both 20 Golden Greats and Shakin'Stevens despite the large number of tracks on each side manage to sound good to me. Not all "Greatest Hits" series are bad sounding. The Police one is outstanding sonically and a pleasant surprise. 
Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?

Congratulations bro...you have officially found vinyl heaven. Last year I went twice...brought back like 100 LPs altogether. Already looking at my work schedule for next year to see when I can plan another Japan trip again....

naglfar, what u bought 100 LPs!! wah hardcore la u.
I only bought 16 LPs. haha Wanted to buy more, but damn heavy to carry back.
I have to release quite a lot that I picked out. So sad to put them back.
Must go back there next year to whack more!

Here's what I bought.

Nice stuff bro. Disk Union has pretty good stuff, but over the years their prices have really gone up quite significantly. Which branch did you go to? From your haul, looks like the Shinjuku ones? Recofan at Shibuya and Shimo-Kitazawa has pretty good selection, and their prices are OK. The Disk Union branch at Ikebukuro is also pretty ok in terms of selection and prices. Generally, I don't buy anything that is more than 800 yen, which is why I can buy a lot. Also, I mainly buy 80s stuff as I think the sound quality is significantly better than the CDs. For some of the newer stuffs, the sound is just on par with the CD.

After a few trips, I've learnt to strategize on how to bring back 50 LPs bro...you need a big enough carry-on for 50 LPs with wheels!
Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: kimotherapy on December 29, 2010, 22:11
wow u are good bro! Like that also can guess which outlet.
Yeah most are Shinjuku and Shibuya.
Was looking for Reconfan at Shibuya, but can't seems to find it!
Even though the prices gone up, I still find them relatively attractive.

carry on 50 LPs with wheels! hmmm maybe next time I will need that!

Haha bro...your next time will come sooner than you think. Indeed a vinyl collector's heaven. Next time before you go, let me know...I'll give you tips on some other low-key vinyl shops that I've found. Cheaper prices, nicer selection. The outlets in Shinjuku and Shibuya are becoming hotspots, as reflected in their prices.

I found a copy of Morrissey's Bona Drag, original pressing in excellent condition, selling for 300 yen (S$4.80) at a small little neighbourhood shop at Ikebukuro ran by a middle aged uncle. Only in Japan man...

If you like Shadows, try The Ventures too. Same drums + 3 guitar line-up, but more lively sound. Good sounding LPs. I just picked up a Japan press Ventures LP titled "Walk Dont Run". Is nice music.

Bro your best bet for would be to check Recofan. There's lot of branches throughout Tokyo - I am only familiar with the Shibuya, Ikebukuro and Shimo-KItazawa outlets. The website should help. Prices start from 100 yen.

Oops looks like my earlier post might have rubbed some of you guys up the wrong way. The word amateur should not or was not meant to carry a negative connotation, it's meant to express some form of relativity. Guess my engrish very poor la so excuse me guys, my straight talk had often offended those who read me wrongly.
Just to prove my point, I always admit to being a amateur golfer, mountaineer, haha, u get the drift...
Anyways I agree with the old birds here, as long as one enjoys the music and that's most important! That's why I will always try to get a good pressing. Enjoy the music!

Vinyl is indeed addictive. Since I bought my turntable last month, ive already spent $500 on LPs within 2 weeks. I'm basically buying back those LPs I disposed in 80s at 3-4 times the price now! The CD version of these LPs released in the late 80s to early 90s  are not pleasant to my ears. Had I kept my vinyl, I paid only $10. Now it's $30 vinyl plus $25 CD or $55 in total.

One thing I wanna ask, so how do u guys search for a particular LP when u wanna listen to it?
How u guys label, care to share your classification and labeling system. Its good to know.

But shiok la, as long enjoy what you buy. Put it on, sit down, listen and chill.

Here's my recent damage. Mostly modern music.

Long time never post in this thread...so here are some new LPs...not exactly easy listening or audiophile stuff  8)

Ihsahn's "After", and Ghost's "Opus Eponymous".
(http://img153.imageshack.us/img153/5396/img1354vi.jpg)
Third solo album from Ihsahn (ex-Emperor). Gatefold white marble 2-LP, very nice! Progressive dark metal with elements like saxophone thrown in, probably the strongest of the trilogy. On the right is Swedish band Ghost's debut under Rise Above Records. A must for any Mercyful Fate fans!

Impiety's new LP "Worshipper of the Seventh Tyranny", and Impaled Nazarene's "Road to the Octagon".
(http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/6109/img1351g.jpg)

Aura Noir "Hades Rising" and Ascension "Consolamentum".
(http://img703.imageshack.us/img703/5326/img1355i.jpg)
I just bought Ascension based on 1 track that I sampled off the web...and I am completely blown away with this record. Epic, complex, and sinister. One of the best releases this year for sure, for me.

Bestial Holocaust "Temple Of Damnation" and Black Witchery "Inferno of Sacred Destruction"
(http://img683.imageshack.us/img683/4143/img1356mu.jpg)
Strong contender for the best vinyl cover in my collection!!

Was just listening to the new Impiety. Initial impression quite disappointing - riffs a bit generic sounding, and not as brutal. Just listening to side A, and then started spinning the new Impaled Nazarene. Whoa! Very impressive in all sense - nice production, plenty of catchy riffs, double bass - everything that I like! But Ascension is even more impressive bro. One of the best black metal I've heard in a long time.

One thing I wanna ask, so how do u guys search for a particular LP when u wanna listen to it?
How u guys label, care to share your classification and labeling system. Its good to know.

Used to separate them in genre, but some of groups (eg. Porcupine Tree) are impossible to classify. So now I put most of them in alphabetic order except classical, soundtrack, mandarin and others that are easier to catalog.




you can rate them.. i bought the billy joel lp..sonics not very impressive though it says 30 years anniversary..

Not surprised. Sad to say that most of the reissued doesn't sound as good as original even if it's pressed in 45rpm, and worse is they're not cheap too. But there're some reissued from reputable labels like ORG, Speakers Corner, Classic Records(recently closed down) are very well remastered and can even sound better than original. So some research is needed before you rush out to get those reissued.

Bro ical, I didn't you listen to Electric Wizard. Dopethrone is one heavy, trippy piece of record man! A normal mind cannot simply appreciate this album - must be a bit high before listening to this for optimum enjoyment!  ;)

Anathema's Alternative 4 is coming out soon. Judgement is also out already, it's not bad too. I'm hoping they would re-release Eternity. That is my personal Anathema favourite.

Post by: ical on March 06, 2011, 13:13
Haha! You're spot on bro! It's a nice album to massage my brain. ;D IMO this is their best album so far.  ;)

I just discovered Anathema. Love these two album so I'm going to get Judgement. Hopefully the rest will be out too.  :D

Bro you must have discovered Anathema from the Kscope label - same label as Porcupine Tree!

Anathema is a great band which has progress a lot from their earlier doomy days! I quite liked A Natural Disaster, but personally think that A Fine day to Exit was their weakest offering. Do note that there are 2 phases in their career - if you buy anything before Eternity, it's basically doom metal with Darren White on vocals. Their earlier style is much like My Dying Bride. Crestfallen was a classic to me for this era. Darren left, and then guitarist Vince took over the vocal duties. Eternity is a damned good album if you like their atmospheric stuff. You should try to get hold of everything from Eternity onwards!

I'm about to ask my friend in Tokyo to get jap pressed LPs for me in Recofan in Shibuya.
Is it true that all the used LPs are sealed and no testing is allowed? My friend knows nothing about LP so I am going to give him a list of my wishlist so that he can pass it to the sales staff there to search. I was told that most jap pressed LPs in Recofan  are well maintained. Is it true?
My wishlist are pop/rock LPs from late 60s to late 80s.

Bro I don't see people testing LPs there. But I have bought many many used LPs from Recofan, and I am very impressed with the condition. Way better than what you can find locally. And prices are really really good too. There are those 100 yen onces, condition might not be as good...but it's 100 yen!

I have a contact who is about to sell me 500 singles from the late 80s at half of original price claimed to be about $16 those days. Condition so so. He said Singles prices (mainly at 45 rpm) were about the same as full album price those days in Singapore. All purchased locally from Valentine, Supreme and DaDa.

Can anybody verify the price of Singles in late 80s in Singapore?

did their record label (usa) ever issue 45rpm for the usa market?

i have many usa artistes on 45rpm (uk pressings), but they always lose out to 33rpm singles usa pressings.
the 45rpm uk single even sound worst than the same song on the 33rpm usa album!

hi jerome hard to tell whether 33/45rpm or us/uk/gernan which is better pressing and regardless of the artist originated. to me it is very much depending on the recording & mixing engineer and also the mother-tape (母带)

7" (45rpm) run with MM sounds very nice.. just that i dun like the part to change vinyl as need to use finger tip to grip on it. i ever slipped and scratch one of the 7". (note i dun stop the platter when i change lp)  :P

we are talking about the same song/recording, dude, which means the recording/mixing/mastering engineers are the same.
it's the lineage of the mastertape used for the transfer that is different.
most often, pressings different from the label/artiste's home country use poorer, subsequent generation duplicates from the master.
that often results in noticeably "diluted" sound - loss in musical information.
while 45rpm's potential for wider dynamic range helps, it really is no substitute, and does not compensate for the information loss already suffered.
of course, some systems may not be transparent enough to allow the owner to appreciate the sonic differences.
so they go on for years and years, happy in their mind, listening to degraded sources.
and they'll go on for years and years, buying inferior pressings, while ignoring the superior ones that sound closer to what the artiste/engineers experienced.

I ordered my Wormrot already bro. Must grab lah this one, support local band!

Let me know how the Slayer box set it. This is the 10 LP version, and not 9 LP right? I have stopped buying reissues already bro. I would say that of the 90% of the reissued LPs that I buy, I find the sound to be comparable to the CD. So really no point for me.

Part of the reason why I never got the boxset is also that I have all of Slayer's releases on CD already. All first pressings :) I try not to double dip so I can channel the $$ to buy other releases which I don't have yet.

But you metalheads bros should get the Enslaved wooden boxset. All their first 6 releases on vinyl in a wooden box. Brilliant band, very under-rated, unfortunately. Their last outing "Axiom Ethica Odini" is quite a masterpiece.

Early Slayer recordings- up until “Live Undead”- are released on Metal Blade Records. Apparently the label owns the rights to this day.

I don’t wish to pour cold water on anyone’s enthusiasm, but I’d say 70% of the contents of this boxset is mediocre stuff. Should spend money on some real solid or “awful” Metal instead of just buying cardboards/boxes because they bear some big established names. :)

Good, as long as you know what and why you are buying.

I had once spoken to a friend on email asking why he was still so keen on buying new SLAYER release after having looked at those seemingly uninspiring junks that the band has put out over the last 2 decades or so. His reply was simple: “I’ll still buy SLAYER even if they play kindergarten music.”
I respect that, really.

Hey, you might also wanna take a look at this (another release from BBTAD):
SATAN “Into the Fire” LP + “Kiss of Death” 7”.
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-MSO7yByuT1k/TYf4GQJK20I/AAAAAAAAACU/r921YHaihBc/s1600/satan.jpg

I will buy it for sure but not so soon. Still searching around for a good deal.

BTW, do check out the band’s 1983 full length “Court in the Act” if you have not heard it yet. It’s undoubtedly one of the best records that came out in the NWOBHM era, or should I say in the history of Metal?
The sheer intensity of the music still pumping adrenaline through every Speed Metal veins to this day. :D

haha bro, yeah. No matter what... whether 70%, 50%, 10% of the contents are mediocre stuff.
To Slayer fans. This is like gold. We not born during that era, and those days as students where got money bought all the Slayer records.
Can only afford cassette tapes, or mixed tapes done by friends.
Now is play catch up time, lost time my man.
No choice my man... reissues is the closest we can lay our hands on these great classics.

I guess you're coming more from expanding your vinyl collection and getting those essential releases. There's always choice whether you wanna go the CD or vinyl path. Personally, the thing about the boxsets is that I also end up paying for albums that I know I won't listen to. I love Slayer, but unfortunately anything from Divine Intervention onwards are just sub-par Slayer albums. I almost wanna say Seasons In The Abyss also sub-par, but there are some good songs there that saved the album.

Not sure what kind of metal you enjoy bro, but Floga Records just re-released earlier Samael stuff. And the 4 Necrophobic records are now on vinyl, under Hammerheart. I ditched Slayer, and went for those instead! IMHO, the 80s are the years of thrash which set the foundation of what is to become, but the 90s IS the golden era of metal. At this pinnacle of creativity, the metal sound evolved into so many sub-genres that defy classification.

At this pinnacle of creativity, the metal sound evolved into so many sub-genres that defy classification.

Right, the evolution in the early 90s was quite a phenomenon. Upon the demise of Thrash, the Metal movement split into 2 paths – the usual folks went for “prominent” bands like PANTERA, BIOHARZARD, new SEPULTURA or basically everything from Roadrunner. The other group, the uncompromised loser party, moved away and dwelled in the underground.

Unfortunately (sort of), the time in late 90s marked as the end of all Metal “evolutions” that I know of. The Black Metal explosion in mid-90s was probably the last phenomenon (if you don’t count the big wave of Heavy Metal comeback led by HAMMERFALL in later part of 90s). Since then superfluous-music-in-Metal-disguise started to flood the scene. Like Jazz music, Heavy Metal originated from group of blue-collars of the lower class. But also like all other pop culture, when HM turned popular, white-collar hipsters started to join in. Metal scenes grew bigger and became diversified but at the same time the old good vibes diminished gradually.

You do like SAMAEL? Have you checked out their official reissue Medieval Prophecy CD? It’s a collection of their old demos and EP materials recorded before “Worship Him” album. The Cat# on the CD is Necro 002. So far It’s only the 2nd release (not counting the 2nd pressing of the original EP) issued by the band under their "label" namely Necrosound over last 20 years. It’s more of a memorabilia than just a CD for listening pleasure. I think you still can find the CD on sale on the band’s website.
Speaking of their debut masterpiece “Worship Him”, I do have fond memories of that cassette tape that accompanied me during the NS days. An old friend now residing in Beijing, told me he still liked to listen to SAMAEL in cold winter nights (must be a whole new feeling). I used to own that same album in 4 different versions – CD, DCD, tape and LP (lost the tape when I moved house). That’s one of the albums that I have had the most versions, at one point, along with “Thundersteel”, “In the Nightside Eclipse”, “Thy Mighty Contract” and a bunch of others.

Hell, maybe we should move any further Metal discussion to the existing Metal thread in this forum (since my other fave Metal forum has been down for no apparent reason). Leave some room for the vinyl hobbyists. :)

Sorry if I sounded or behaved like a dog in my early post. I wasn’t trying to start a topic on the “reissue” thing. I’m not one of those rich Metal elites that believe “only the original first pressing is real”. I buy reissue CD/LP too (well mostly CDs) sometimes even bootlegs.

Bro Samael started out as a black metal. Not the raw, grim type, more symphonic and polished. A little bit of synth, but never industrial. Just got my Witchfinder General boxset and Virus yesterday. Will post pix later.

All the LPs I got this round sounds great with the exception of Punk as Fcuk, a compilation of hardcore punk from the 80s. Only thing I liked about it is the white vinyl. If I m still young I would also pin the free badge and sew the free patch on my bag ;D

White vinyl is the nuts man! swee!
wahahaha still got free badge n patch! Never too old to do anything my friend.

Bro Samael started out as a black metal. Not the raw, grim type, more symphonic and polished. A little bit of synth, but never industrial. Just got my Witchfinder General boxset and Virus yesterday. Will post pix later.

Still thinking about Morbid Angel. But I bought tickets for Nevermore already.

Now they sound more melodic n synth. Wow more boxset for u!
Go Morbid Angel! How can u miss them. Not into Nevermore. So not going that.
Next up, Napalm Death :)

Unfortunately as legendary as Morbid Angel might be, I was never really into them, or the whole Florida death metal scene which boomed up in the early 90s. Used to own all the ABCDEF Morbid Angel LPs, sold them off long ago. Still prefer the Nevermore sound, especially their later releases - technical, incredible riffings, and melodic. That's the kind of metal that I like...

I'm the opposite, not into melodic metal.

Nevermore isn't melodic in the In Flames sense bro. Check out this track - my favourite Nevermore song.

Make sure you listen to the chorus and the solo that follows. Brilliant stuff.

They are good. The riffs, the double pedals drumming is tight n punchy!
The solos is insane!
But the chorus still very melodic type.

I'm heading to HK tomorrow. Anyone know of any good metal/rock/indie record shops that sell vinyls?

Huh? I think you need to dig a bit deeper into the band’s history to get the facts right. ;D
If you were talking about “Ceremony” album, well this one put the band in the “spotlight” indeed. It’s a solid record nevertheless.

I did went Sino Centre. There mostly sell BD, CDs. Used and new. Not much vinyl.
Went to HMV, the central branch, bought a few vinyls. Their price not bad, much cheaper than SG.
Also managed to track down another record shop at Causeway Bay, bought some as well.
Overall I must say HK sells vinyl much cheaper than SG.

More metal!

Wolf's new LP, Legions of Bastards. Brilliant but under-rated Swedish heavy metal. LP comes with CD, from Century Media.
(http://img684.imageshack.us/img684/8501/img1580bu.jpg)

Third and undoubtedly the best release from the Norwegian band Virus. Think of Ved Buens Ende, later Ulver, Arcturus...brilliant avant-garde stuff. Now OOP.
(http://img820.imageshack.us/img820/7158/img1581g.jpg)

Witchfinder General boxset! Seems to be quite hard to find now. Got mine from Svart Records, during their free shipping promo last month.

Has anyone got the Led Zeppelin " Mothership" LP. I received yesterday and played it. Man just could not listen to it at all. It has been remastered and sounds like s**t. It is so digital, lifeless and had no range. As though  all the records (5 in total) have been recorded at one monotone.

I compared it to an original recording of "Stairway to Heaven" and even the wifey said "That is terrible. So lifeless."

I sold off my Mothership cd, found the sound as u described. Some liked it tho, maybe cos their sys is very warm sounding.

Thanks for replying. So what kind of clamp? Is the Michell record clamp any good?
Should be buying that online, cos it is so much cheaper, around S$50+ with shipping.
The record clamps selling in adelphi all cost S$120 n above. Too ex. Not gonna spend so much on a clamp.

Earnest has a couple of copies of Tron legacy left, but he was telling me it's rather hard to get it now. It's on a limited press of 9072 copies and each is serial numbered. Don't ask me why that number. IMHO, worth every single cent.

I had a listen again to Adele, and still 19 comes out tops for me....just doesn't seem...so commercialized.

Post by: pathetichindsight on June 30, 2011, 23:05
yeah i got both the vinyl and cd reissues but i did not really A/B with the older cds & records cos time is at a premium these days. i remember i used to have the Unknown Pleasures cassette tape which mixed up side A & B, which meant the cassette started with She's lost control, and so, for many many years i got the tracklist wrong. but i do remember the Closer vinyl reissue sounding excellent. in my mind, i still think the side B of Closer is the most perfect side B of any album i know. the four songs on side B are all perfect songs.   
Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?

Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: pathetichindsight on July 01, 2011, 00:25
i think Closer is a more cohesive collection of songs, while the tracklist on Unknown Pleasures does not flow as well. i also always found it hard to sit through I Remember Nothing. on Closer, side B is astounding, and Peter Hook's bass playing and Ian Curtis' vocals/words on 24 HOURS really made me Listen to songs. But of course, the Unknown Pleasures sleeve is better.

The Rhino reissues are not too bad, but I only bought Closer cos of the songs.
Though Unknown Pleasures is a must! Next on my list, among many others. haha

found this in geylang. asked my crooked-leg camera buddy to take it. he said no, he don't know if it is any good.
so i bought it for $10. brought it home, cleaned it and played it for him.
then i asked him if he still wants to buy it for $10.
he didn't hesitate this time  ;D

Der Kommisar - After the Fire
La Bamba - Los Lobos
Talking in your sleep - Romantics
Rock me Amadeus - Falco

Most probably sellin them after converting to CD. Have been converting many of my vinyls to CDs and now listening to them on CDs, Much more convenient  ;D

Which store in Osaka? How did you get the rare Suzanne Vega " solitude dancing"? I searched throughout Recofan in Tokyo for the past 6 months and I could not even find it. In the end I paid a bomb locally. The recording is superb! None of her CDs (including remasters) can match the original vinyl, even when played on dCS CDP.

Men at Work and Johnny Hates Jazz vinyl recording is heavenly too!

Bro the Suzanne Vega vinyl is a used found in a small music shop as I was roaming around Shijo dori area in Kyoto. Cannot really remember the shop's name, all i remember is that it is located at the 2nd floor, and it sells mostly hip hop stuff. You know how it is when we shop  for music, most of the time we stumble upon goodies all by luck...

Last year I bought their 10 CD-singles box set (http://www.amazon.com/CD-Single-Box-Set-10-CDs/dp/B000008EER) from '91.... one of the most often spun set in my collection.... Not to mention Siouxsie & The Banshees, absolute classic bands. :)

Beach House's previous album Devotion was so so but when I caught them at Laneway festival in spore, their new songs sounded really good even on first listen, so i got Teen Dream, which is pretty good. I have ordered Girls' new album too....  ;D

Yeah Teen Dream is a much better album compared to Devotion. Their set at Laneway fest was good. Though it was drizzling. But night falls, I was drench! LOL.
Temper Trap really great band as well, their Conditions album on vinyl quite hard to find.

Go check out this band, Tennis.

I was at laneway for Beach House & Deerhunter, both of which were excellent. I left during the Foals set cos it was pouring like mad and their music did nothing for me. And i had been standing the whooole day.. my legs were gona give way. I read about Tennis b4 but not checked out their music, altho their LP cover caught the eye....

pathetichindsight, yeah it was pouring during Foals, my friends and I all have to find shelter at the underpass. Then we back for Temper Trap after Foals set.
Cos we were all waiting for Temper Trap.

I see some LPs from the mighty Immortal there. Nice bro. Gotta complete the collection. How is Turbocharged. I thought of getting it, but the few tracks i sampled didnt really click with me. If you like old school death thrash, you have to check out Excoriate. Fuh....blew me away.

Post by: naglfar on October 01, 2011, 09:40
Haha bros, sometimes artwork are scarier then the music. It's all part of the packaging. Maybe I'll invite you guys to have a listen one day.

But Deathspell Omega is a freaking scary band.

On a more serious note, I think this is one of the reason why I love collecting vinyls by death and black metal bands. I think a lot of thoughts and conceptalization goes into the artwork, and at the end of the way, the artwork becomes an integral part of the whole musical package. And most of the time, the artwork is inspired by themes of the occult, which by itself is already rather intriguing and fascinating. I mean, if you're into stuff like HR Giger, you 'll get the drift. You rarely see that in mainstream releases. Most of the time, it's just photo of the artistes. Spectacularly boring.

Don't have to carry back lah, just packed nicely in a carton, check it in at the airport.  I took back 20 pieces this way.  I would have bought more but I was traveling also to Kobe, Nagoya and Osaka.  On my next trip, I will make Yokohama my last stop before flying home.... :)

Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: francis wu on October 02, 2011, 19:05
About 10 minutes walk from the Yokohama station, very convenient.  Disk Union is 5 minutes away but the store on the 2nd floor is very small and the pricing is slightly more expensive than Recofan.  Believe me, the store space of Recofan is huge, you probably will take a day sieving thru' the LPs' boxes.  You can google Recofan Yokohama for the address.  It's on the 4th floor of Diaia (can't remember the spelling) department store.  Just ask the teens on the streets and they will point you the way.

The famous department store is connected to the station below Sheraton Hotel.  Again ask anyone at the station and they will know.  Btw, if member, can get 10% discount of points in your acct.

Happy shopping.... :)

these days boxsets very siong. the U2 (achtung baby), Smiths & Pixies boxsets all very expensive. in comparison this is quite cheap liao cos its only double digit and not triple digit. The achtung baby vinyl boxset is more than USD100. for me, i just dun want to pay for music in formats like DVD in a boxset, and being a vinyl lover, i dun mind forking out more for vinyl boxsets. i noticed hmv & amazon sell 2CD reissues quite cheaply after a while too..

Have the crossroads LP as well... Another one worth getting.... The one LP that has eluded me so far is counting crows self titled which has the awesome hit mr jones. It's now at crazy prices at eBay... Otherwise I have almost gotten all the music I listened to in my schooling days on LP.

Tks.. got them cheap and in good condition too. Unlike other 80s UK bands like The Smiths & New Order, The Housemartins are not as popular, less "cool" and their records less in demand. But they released some very very good songs.

wow, goodies envy you ;)

They re-released this? Nice....I still prefer John Bush to Joey Belladonna when it comes to vocals. My personal fave Anthrax album with John Bush on vocals has got to be Volume 8.

Since this is on LP, can I just check with you guys if it's still possible to find LP like
1) Sound Of Music Sountrack 1965 press ? Or any repress ?
2) Music to Watch Girls By. Which one that has the Theme from "Summer Place", Downtown, Wishin & Hoppin, Perhaps perhaps perhaps.

Oh, I really miss that kind of music that played by my grand father on his turntable and tube amp.

I bought the 1965 Sound of Music Australia pressed LP recently and the recording sounds so muffled.. as if there is a veil, like in the movie. The are too many tracks crammed on both sides. The orchestral sounds like the recording of simon garfunkel's Bridge over Troubled Water orchestral background.. Terrible.

I have a copy of the Sound of Music LP, I have no idea whihc pressing it is from, you can have a listen later. But like what bro Jagdpanzer mentioned, the recording is not fantastic.

If you want fantastic recording, I let you listen to Debbie Gibson's Lost In Your Eyes us the US pressing LP. Steam ah....

I didn't know it has now a Filipino lead. Maybe the musical Glee relaunch their comeback.
I have heard the old CD version but it sounds clinical since there was no remaster.
The Jap half speed master is ridiculously expensive and rare.

Wow, that's not cheap. How's the sound bro? Not sure if you're played it since it sounds like your TT is in storage. I didn't quite like the production from what I hear from the CD, it sounds too fuzzy to me. But Bullet With Butterfly Wings is simply awesome.

will bring it down to RDA to have a spin when i'm free... after that i will update on the sound quality.
I heard a vinyl rip which was downsized from 24/96 to 16/44.1 redbook standard. blew me away to the extent I went to hunt for this LP.
of course the songs capture me too, grew up with the songs.

buying off ebay has its risks, whether the items were as described, or that worries that the mechandise dun arrive.

a package came for me this morning. from flood plains of thailand.
i had worried that the package may not make it through the deludge.
or that the seller had sold a dummy.

anyway, when it arrived, i hold the package in trepidation, as i carefully unwrapped it.....

The 2 main records that I wanted was Tracy Chapman and Cyndi Lauper's She's So Unusual. And they do not disappoint at all in terms of SQ. Even W.A.S.P's 'Wild Child' and 'The Last Command' sounds so damned good on analog.

And 2 recent titles on vinyl:

Bro, don't bother with making things auto with the TT. There's a reason why things are the way it is. The simpler it is, the better.

You can get record cleaning brushes from Adelphi (try New Disc Village), but to properly clean record requires more than just a brush. You'll need a record cleaning machine.

You bought the wrong TT to start off with. How decent can a US$200 bucks (new!) USB TT sound?
You could have bought a used Technics SL1200 Mk 5 or 4 for $700 bucks or less if you want to play DD.
Since 1972, more than 3 million units have been sold. It is widely regarded as one of the most durable and reliable turntables ever produced which sadly ceased in Nov 2010. I think the dealer here still have a couple left..  It has a convenient quick Start / Stop button which you want.

Yeah right, the cheapo tt won't give out good sound.
My aim is to just get me started and Im not willing to just pour out my hard earn money into something I'm not familiar with.
I still believe the source isn't that critical, getting a good cartridge and phono stage as naglfar mentioned would be my next target.
Local distri for the technic selling the tt like hot cakes and price is 3-4 times of what I gotten, with that money I can get myself a good cartridge and phono stage already.

Just my own route and I like it this way, thanks for pointing out though. Appreciated.

Understand your concern. There are many 2nd hand Technics available and it's built like a tank for decent performance.  Good resale value too. A few hundred bucks more for a TT cannot get you many LPs or CDs...  Just my 2 cents.

Its not so much the budget thing but rather the choice of a USB turntable. The allure of vinyl is the analog sound and here you have a analog turntable that's throttled by digital USB. If budget is on the low side better mileage can be had from a used decent turntable. ;)

Yes, the selection of tt had bugs me for a while.
Having looking at used tt and the robust 1200mkII I ended up choosing the new tt with USB connection.
I'm really glad that I got lots of input from the last few posts.

Just wondering, if there's really nothing that I can do to improve the output stage?
Thinking of DIY a phono stage and upgrade the cartridge. I was impressed by your phono amp built.

Its not so much the budget thing but rather the choice of a USB turntable. The allure of vinyl is the analog sound and here you have a analog turntable that's throttled by digital USB. If budget is on the low side better mileage can be had from a used decent turntable. ;)

IMHO, there's just a few things you need to do:

Make sure this current turntable is sitting on a level and rigid platform.

If it uses a 2-pin ac plug, Make sure that it is plugged into the power supply with the correct ac polarity (live-live and neutral-neutral)

Try to separate the turntable power supply from your hifi components.

Set the correct vertical tracking force to ensure optimum tracking
(also to avoid excessive groove wear)

Buy early pressing LPs (best is same country of orgin as the artistes)

Buy a stylus brush! Get the soft long type. Ask vinylucky if he still has any dynavector brush.
These dynavector brush give a nice "lift" to your sound.

[edit]oh, I should also say: remove the dust cover when playing LPs![edit]

(also to avoid excessive groove wear) this is not checked as I'm very sure of what it meant, you meant setting the correct tracking force of the cartridge ? Example 3.5g for the stock. This would avoid excessive groove wear on the vinyl?

Buy early pressing LPs (best is same country of orgin as the artistes) Checked, bought a lot of first pressed lp from eBay, coming soon.

Buy a stylus brush! Get the soft long type. Ask vinylucky if he still has any dynavector brush.
These dynavector brush give a nice "lift" to your sound. Checked, still hunting for it.

[edit]oh, I should also say: remove the dust cover when playing LPs![edit] Checked, this is what I did but I didn't know why.

Most cartridges I know track around 1.7g to 1.9g.

Are you sure you are given the right info?

Oh man, thanks for the tips. There's one that is not checked.

A dust cover hinged onto the plinth introduce a hell lot of vibration to the whole turntable assembly.
The difference can be great sound (even from cheap TTs) or nigh high unlistenable.

Have you recalibrated your VTF yet?

3.5g is definitely too much. And might have dire and irreparable consequences for your LPs.....

(http://img522.imageshack.us/img522/6040/img2280r.jpg)

Personally I have been buying more CDs than LPs recently. Was quite disappointed with the SQ of recent releases like Adele's 21. Sounds compressed and lacks the dynamic range, though slightly marginally better than the CD.

Yes, thanks for the advise.
I've checked on the specs again for the cartridge it comes with the set, it's a AT95.
It should be around 1.5g-2.5g only, had since adjusted it.

Very nice!

Yeah bro I know. But not cheap, and it came with a whole load of stuff that I wouldn't miss collecting. I have the vinyl and the bluray, good enough for me. I have the limited edition version of Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust, and that was cool, because you can find my name among the thousands of fans who pre-ordered it in the photo book.

Yes bro, bingo! Waiting for Inni. So u manage to get the clear vinyl?
haha yeah the LP magic is still going strong.
Adele 21 still not that bad la. Also just preordered Adele bluray as well.

Yeah the Inni limited edition isn't that worth it. Though it's nice.
They are smart to package different editions. I'm still thinking if I should get the bluray, since the LP set comes with the dvd.
How's the bluray set?
Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: naglfar on December 01, 2011, 00:22
For INNI, I just got the black vinyl version. Ordered from Amazon UK which was the cheapest. The bluray must get la bro. It will look glorious when viewed with a projector. Amazon US just dropped the price on the bluray. It was selling for $13.99. I paid $19.99 for mine, I thought cheap already. Anyway, the LP is damned worth the price. The package contains 3 LPs, 2 CDs and 1 DVD.

Was just listening to Adele's 21 on vinyl. This is one of my wife's favourite album this year, and even she commented that tracks like Don't You Remember sounds better on CD. Vocals have more air to it, and the instruments sound cleaner. On the other hand, Zee Avi's Ghostbirds sound absolutely fantastic on vinyl. This is one of my favourite albums his year, and the LP is a must get.

Adele's 21 and Zee Avi's Ghostbird are albums of the year for me too  ;D

Cowboy Junkies - Renmin Park: The Nomad Series, Vol. 1


(http://image.allmusic.com/00/amg/cov200/drn900/n941/n94119ij34s.jpg)



Love the music and Margo Timmin's ethereal voice; but not for everyone, very slow and dreamy, to quote allmusic.com - "their music was grounded in traditional country, blues, and folk, yet drifted along in a sleepy, narcotic haze that clearly bore the stamp of the Velvet Underground (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/the-velvet-underground-p5753)".  Now looking for the other albums in these Nomad series.

Good buy... Grab it while it's still available. Else when it becomes like "Girl in the other room" (super rare, ebay asking USD$299) then have to suck thumb.

I am not really a fan of Carpenters but I managed to buy this used 1973 A&M LP compilation from Amazon out of nostalgy.

The last time I touched and heard this LP, which belonged to my relative then, was when I was in Kindergarten, decades ago.

While playing it last night, the superb recording and voice of Karen really gives me the goose bumps..

It's really amazing how the recording technology could be so good those days.

For bros who are interested...

I recently watched Cajun Pawn Stars season 1 episode 2.
Jerry Lee Lewis's very first LP (pressed by J & M records?) made an appearance.
JLL's childhood friend wanted to sell it. Expert appraised the value at usd15k-20k but he wouldn't take less than 100k.

Just a bit of Rock & Roll history. Fun :)

Here is my latest addition..

Styx Cornerstone - First issue. Very good SQ ( for a rock LP). Lights, Boat on the River, First time and of course Babe a beautiful soft rocks to melt your heart.
Joan Jett & the Black Hearts - I love rock and roll ...must have for Joan Jett fans. Raw and energetic music
Dan Hill - If Dreams have Wings - not an easy to find piece. Beautiful lyrics. Great tempo
The Alan Parson Project - Eye in the Sky (first issue). Superb recording and real good keeper.

yes, in the early till mid 80s there are some factories i heard in Msia i think fake vinyl production and from the cover and label can tell straight away it is fake.

Post by: Chowbotak on April 03, 2012, 17:56
WEB's take is very logical but the pirated one is Santan. No information on the cover except titles of tracks and the label "Fanfare" sounds like an attempt to piggy back on the popularity of the then Fanfare magazine. Btw I don think vinyls were pirated during by the time the NTWICM series came about

I personally think that NDV's vinyl prices are very competitive, in fact probably one of the best around for new releases. Just bought Foo Fighter's new LP from there. 2LP, 45rpm, US pressing, S$40. At that time, Amazon was selling around US$25. You add shipping, waiting time, plus the possibility that it might get damaged during transit, it wasn't a difficult choice for me.

Of course for second hand vinyls, local prices are high la. Just fly to Japan, and hoot back 100 one time. The savings can easily offset your air ticket there :)

Spent half a day at Recofan Yokohama (thanks to Francis) today ..
Really really spoilt for choice .. The LPs are so new and reasoably cheap ( despite high yen), compared to Singapore.
Even the US/UK pressed looked mint. I ended up buying some LPs I already owned because they are just so freaking well "preserved". Sort of regret buying so many locally in the past.

From Earache:

Evile - 5 Serpent's Teeth - If u missed the old Metallica a la And Justice for all, u may like this. Formerly a Metallica covers band, they do sound somewhat like them, the lead singer in particular, sounds quite like Hetfield. This album sounds faster, snappier and tighter but of course, their song writing standard is nowhere near AJFA's. I actually preferred the drummer's drumming to Lar's! Like AJFA, the album is spread out in 2 discs and if not for the somewhat subdued treble, I would rate the sound quality as awesome!

Tat Evile album supposed to be in clear/white vinyl but they sent me black ones.  Just emailed them to wake up and send the correct one!  I don know why The Negation is only available in10 inch,  I think it has an effect on sound quality!

Bro, Mutiilation's Vampires of Black Imperial Blood on its original End All Life records is one of the most sought after and expensive black metal records man. At one point, it was about 1000 euro in ebay. Really, it is crazy. Lots of bootlegs, so have to be careful. Mine is just the rerelease by Drakkar. It is not expensive...but buy now before it is gone. But i dunno if you like the music. Actually the music is so so only for me. But very shiok to collect man. It is just like collecting stamp!

Yup that's what I thought bro. Your taste is more towards the death metal side. These guys are not exactly great musicians. If they can, they sure blast their way through just like Behemoth or Emperor. Mutiilation only make evil and terrible sounding music, and claim it is for Satan. Haha.

Bro, I listened to the first cd and I was extremely pleased with the recording, in fact I was asking myself, how much better could the LP be? Than I spin the vinyl and frankly, I was quite disappointed, maybe bcos the cd sounded so good already or perhaps my expectations was too high? But I did at one point even tot the cd sounded better! Ok, hope I didnt "unpoison" u  ;D

For those who are into the percussion piece "Jazz Variant" by the O-Zone Percussion Group in this LP for its explosive percussion bass passages;

(http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/3236/mangerdemocd.jpg)

Here's a great new! just acquired this Clearaudio label LP:

(http://img838.imageshack.us/img838/67/ozonelp.jpg)

Pressing is fully analogue from mastering to mixing, and the presentation is just much more organic, borderless and natural!!

Plus this is a full album by O-Zone percussion so there are also other great pieces from the same group. One of the great current pressing LP IMO.


p.s. too sloppy to take images of actual LPs :)

This is my favourite Maiden album, and my first Maiden vinyl. It sure sounds awesome - maybe I should start looking for all the Maiden LPs.

New one from Aura Noir. Plenty of killer blackened thrash metal riffs here.

And finally, Deathspell Omega's new EP 'Drought'. Bleak, chaotic and cathartic - they never fail to impress me. Killer artwork too.

Bro, I ordered their most recent album, Paracletus. I listened to them again on youtube and noticed that their later releases seems to have better recordings. Was actually quite tempted to get their 7 LP boxset but fortunately, the guys at Osmose are on leave till next month and I hate to wait,  so now I have more time to think and consider carefully ;D

Bro CBT, black metal and good recording does not jive la. If it is too well produced, the intended rawness and grit of the music is be diluted. DSO needs to sound chaotic. I buy black metal LP not for audio quality bro. It is for worshipping at my unholy altar.  ;D

No lah bro...This one is an impulse buy. I have a soft spot for Terrorizer's AOTM titles. Usually they don't disappoint. But you'll never know. I only own one other Nachtmystium title (Black Meddle), and 2 years after buying, I never even open yet! But those HOP vinyls sure look delicious. Osmose has the latest Impiety LP in stock, and I just gotta have that based on the artwork alone. So majestic! Will probably hoot some HOP vinyls to maximize shipping.

Diana krall 45 rpm outperforms the 33 rpm and the cd version by a huge huge margin imho....it's so good i got 2 extra copies to keep for the pressing... And. I've got both 33 rpm and the cd copy as well :)

Went to NDV , was told by the boss they only carried Live In Paris 45rpm but is out of stock and the SQ is better than 33rpm.

That Vomitory album is brilliant bro. The first track is killer old school death metal at its best. Also must get get "Raped In Their Own Blood". I think Animate Records released that. I only have the CDs for those 2.

Just FYI - you might be able to get LPs from big labels (Century Media, Nuclear Blast) cheaper from Amazon DE, especially when the VAT deduction kicks in. I usually go for obscure black metal labels from Osmose, because Amazon won't have them. The Krisiun is under  Century Media, right? Between Amazon and Osmose, you can virtually get any metal vinyls already. There are also the following places which has some very cool vinyls:

Dark Symphonies - US based. They do very awesome re-released of classick old school stuff. This place is dangerous bro - you see the pictures alone, your nose will sure bleed. Beautiful stuff.

Nuclear War Now:

I would be ordering like a madman from these place, if nor for the fact that shipping is not cheap. Sometimes OSmose do carry certain Svart and NWN stuff, but not everything. The Die-Hard versions, you have to get direct from the labels.

Bro CBT / Eyepower - do check out Cobalt (bottom right hand corner). American black metal band. This is their latest album Gin that came out in 2009. It is absolutely awesome.  The LP was released by Canada's Profound Lore, limited to 500 copies. Now I am looking at their back catalog.

And I have gone completely nuts over this majestic Russian black metal band Pseudogod.
(http://imageshack.us/a/img26/9280/20120929105737.jpg)

Bro CBT...there are subtle differences between the Kvlt release and the Hell's Headbanger's release. For one, HHB's version is coloured! And the cover finishing is matte, as opposed to the slightly glossy one by Kvlt (the top one). Both have the huge booklet. This band is destined to be huge, so the Kvlt version is a keeper, since it is the original label. Sound wise, I cannot comment as they both sound like they were recorded in Hell.

Bro Hanzo, where do u normally shop for vinyls?

Bro Chow, i do not have a specific shop to buy my vinyls. Being Supreme records, Valentine records and DA DA records were my main source last time. Also i don't really buy much METAL LP nowadays, i have being buying a lot of 70's and 80's rocks instead, seems to tone down liao.

I used to get my metal cd and Nuclear BLAST stuff PICTURE LP and LP plus a couple of nuclear blast CD, Digipak and those limited edition from Ah yong(stomping ground drummer)in the 90's.

I also knew those guys from the band IMPIETY too, use to hang around with them in funan mcdonalds open space. Occasionally Roy from Pulverised Records will join us too talking about the bands that he's going to sign and stuff that he will release in the future. 

Normally Where do you get your vinyls.

I was about to ask you and bro Chow the same question too, actually i thought 1 of you might be razali or idris too. Cool, if you have went to Ah yong's place to buy his stuff. You know during that time ah yong wanted to sell me his Nuclear blast picture LP at only $22 and lowest i could get was $20 and he kept pestering me to buy from him every now and then but i have totally stopped listening to Vinyl and i was completely isolated from the vinyl world for almost maybe from 1995. Cos i just told myself i only wants to buy cd ha ha, I started buying vinyl since in 1987 and i sold away my 2 slayer album which they were the only thrash metal groups to be signed to a rapping label called DEF JAM recordings and whoever has bought it from me i hope he still has it. 

Only recently i started listening back to vinyl, it really amazes me to see your VINYL LP and bro chow collection.   

By looking at your metal collection album by album from groups, seriously you deserve my respect most ;)

Is he still doing the same thing????

Think by now his son must've grown up already.

I have not met Ayong for ages. But I think he started selling again and bringing stuff in from NB like he did the last time. Nowadays he uses Facebook to do his marketing and taking orders. I never see him for almost 10 years already bro.

Wah Bros naglfar and Hanzo, u 2 are old timers man, I'm still newbie! ;D I just started gettin into metal in a big way only this year. Was introduced to metal in my teens by a dear fren who is the only true hardcore metalhead fren I had. Sadly, he is behind bars and I have not seen him for ages. Most of my youth I had been into punk and Oi! music. In adulthood, I hardly try to discover new music, than I went into hifi and drifted even further from aggro music. As of now, my fav place to buy vinyl is Osmose, thanks or no thanks to naglfar and I have abt 10 in my cart right now, guess it will be the last for this year, I haven even listened to half of all the vinyls I bot this year, wtf  ;D
Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: naglfar on October 14, 2012, 07:30
Bro CBT, I think I only listened to half of my vinyls only. Normal la. Buy and collect first. These metal Lps are printed in very small quantities, so I just buy at normal prices when they are still easily available. Some more euro now is low, Osmose shipping is cheap. Once OOP, expensve man.  :)

The last time he was telling me that he will not be bringing in stuff from NB again grumbling that they are asking for more money from him and during that time EURO'S was not even introduced cause he was converting it into deustmark paying it to them by their own currency.

I doubt so unless maybe he is doing it big time now, even his partner razali had told me the same thing last time before i shifted my house cos i used to check out stuff from razali's house too.

Seriously, if you people had not mention it, i thought the OSMOSE label had already went bust. They use to have big names like MARDUK, IMPALE NAZARENE, IMMORTAL.

I would say that Osmose is still going strong man. If not for them, I will have no idea where to get vinyls from bands like Deathspell Omega, Blut Aus Nord and the other black metal bands at a reasonable price. They will stock all the latest offerings from labels like Norma Evangelium Diabolicum and Debemur Morti. I just order the latest Blut Aus Nord from them. The white vinyl looks damn good.
Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: Hanzo on October 14, 2012, 09:04
Wow, bro naglfar. That is great, but over the years OSMOSE has almost lost out a lot of great bands to other labels, surprisingly the label are still going so strong especially with current europe's economy situation now.

Wah damn poetic. Actually I started out with LPs back when I was a poor secondary school kid. Setup is very humble. I can't remember my first CD but I am quite sure my first LP is Michael Jackson's Thriller. I still have my LPs and 12" singles stash. My uncle even gave me his 60-70s LPs like Beatles and Elvis.  Maybe one day I will go back to them.

Post by: Hanzo on October 23, 2012, 22:25
HMMM..............Repugnant, these band has been in out of the scene every now and then over the years.

Hey, is that their first Full Length album after all these donkey years ago!!!! My friend said they did a horrible Morbid cover song.(never get a chance to hear it)

I think i rather listen to Rudra, Kahti and his guys are getting even better and better.

No wait.................now i think i know where i put my Swervedriver first full length LP "Raise"....................OOOHHH, shoegazers those day are so in, think i will dig"Raise" first.

The Rotten Sound is a good buy, i got their first album release "under pressure" from ah yong and it's from the now defunct Repulse Records....................GRINDCORE is good.
Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: naglfar on October 23, 2012, 23:16
Yup, Repugnant has been in and out of the scene. I have not paid much attention to them until recently - there's just something about them which I liked. Not quite sure what too.

And yup, Rudra is a good band, truly respect them. Bumped into them a few times in Blackisle while we were recording our EP. But somehow their music don't quite click with me. I would rather be listening to Concave Scream if I had the  choice.

Anyway too busy with the kiddos tonight...so don't feel like any metal. Instead... ;)

YOU TYPED - Anyway too busy with the kiddos tonight...so don't feel like any metal. Instead... ;)

Huh...........Concave scream????? You mean the band from Jason tan/chow????? That really makes me wanna puke about their music. I use to met him a couple of times in the 80's and 90's at one of the shop in orchard owned by jerry. I must say that fellow's taste of music is damn weird even jerry has personally told me that the stuff he has ordered from him are truly high obscure type.....................from "Front 242" to "Skinny puppy" and then to "Misfits" to "The Exploited".

Even Peter from DA DA Records use to sell their casettes but probably sales was too bad on their releases that he says he would rather carries more cd's to sell from "the Pagans" and the "Oddfellows" other then Concave Scream.

Nothing is KIDDO side in the forum you know :'( and you have just showed the very soft side of your own nature, you know not everything is metal and that is of course, LMAO.

BTW, Rudra use to be signed under my friend's label when they first started out and they were cousins too but somehow my friend decided to dropped them.................ha ha ha.................he was telling me they went like ORIENTAL METAL direction...............other friends told me they sounded like BANGALAH METAL................oh well, what the heck.

Lastly, hey Roy............did you received my REPLIED PM????? When you have first PMed me introducing yourself to me that maybe we've known each other before.

But I strongly doubt so that we knew each other.

Kiddo = my 2 kids bro. Hope you didn't read this wrongly.

Yup not everything is metal. As long as the music is right for you, that's all that matters. Nothing wrong with showing your soft side. If you think Front 242, Skinny Puppy, Misfits is a weird combination...then I am sure I have weirder taste in music. My latest batch of CDs include Norah Jones, Anaal Nathrakh, Muse and Carole King. You must be puking right now  :)

So my taste is even weirder than bro Naglfar's. Wait till u see my next post of my new cds purchase, think u may faint!  ;D But as it is, the music tat made me buy the most software in a short time is metal, I have more than 40 cds and 14 LPs on the way!   :P

Been spinning some Beatles last few nights......

(http://i1174.photobucket.com/albums/r619/Xtremeplace1/P1010054.jpg)
The past masters USA pressing LP in the ELP player

For a 44.1kHz digital transfer, the sound is quite good!
No trace of digititus that points one to its unfortunate origins
And that's only the usa pressing....

When i flipped on the eu (Pallas) pressing next, the sound went up 1 notch!

:)

The eu pressing is clearer, fuller bodied, and more extended at the top end.

Was listening to this album....

(http://i1174.photobucket.com/albums/r619/Xtremeplace1/Snapbucket/B4C7A284.jpg)

...when i finally pluck up the courage to change the impedance from 100ohms to 47k ohm on the pass lab Ono phono stage , and the sound changed appreciably.

In particular, the sound is now fuller bodied, there's more immediate presence, timbre of instruments become more natural and the somewhat "whitish" flavor of the sound was removed.

This 许美静 album now sounds quite fab.
Worthwhile picking up...

Hmmm, this is interesting. Seems like this ELP turntable works a bit differently? I'm under the impression that as input impedance of phono stage increases, the sound becomes thinner, more open with more emphasis on highs. But I could be mistaken.

Sorry for the off topic.

Sorry for the off topic.

The ELP's phono output supposedly mimics a MM cartridge, but the way it responded to impedance loading changes is similar to my Lyra Skala MC cartridge....

So the output level is like MM cartridge. Which means can use with lower gain phono stage with fewer active devices or step up transformers. Nice.

Is the recording of this LP good?
Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: how-hi-is-hifi on December 28, 2012, 20:21
the sound quality on a record does not depend on the recording, it has to go thru another process, namely, mastering.
So, the mastering engineer plays a very important role in the whole recording chain. He is considered the most skillful
among all engineers
Records mastered by top mastering engineers, of course will sound excellent.
So, the next time you buy a record, look out for the mastering engineer, top engineers are, Doug Sax (Sheffield lab),
Bernie Grundman, Steve Hoffman, Bob Ludwig, etc. Many of today's audiophile records are mastered by one of them.
Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: how-hi-is-hifi on December 28, 2012, 21:16
wat does original master recording means?

this term is adopted only by MFSL, which means, an audiophile component, a stereo component, that is,
if you play this particular record, it becomes one of the components in your stereo chain, so the sound on
this record has been recorded, mastered and produced to the highest standard.

Has anyone purchased LPs from Amazon USA recently? How is the packaging?
Is it lot's of free air, or have they got a box that holds the LPs nicely? Looking to buy around 10 LPs, just wondering is shipping by Borderlinx is gonna kill me.
Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: kzone on January 23, 2013, 17:46
hey, about to ask a related question but the opposite ! The standard shipping cost direct fm Amazon to Sin is super high ! USD54 for abt 5 LPs.
So wanted to ask if cheaper to go via vpost/borderlinx and whether the packaging is good enough to use vpost (CD cases arrived cracked pretty often)
Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: silencer13 on January 23, 2013, 17:52
Yah, Amazon's packing is not consistent.
I don't know is it because if you use Borderlinx they consider it domestic shipping and don't pack as safely as overseas shipping, but I also have had many CD cases cracked when they arrive.

USD54 for 5 LPs, then I got a feeling it's gonna be a lot of air.
Looking at all the Amazon standard boxes, I think none of the smaller ones can fit LPs, so they would have to use the really big boxes.

Amazon packages for vinyls are generally well packed, double boxed and a little over sized. Once I ordered 1 lp (can't remember if it was third party seller) and got it shipped thru borderlinx or vpost. The bloody box was so big tat the cost of shipping was more than the cost of they lp! Have always chose direct shipping since then!

Many years ago before I was into hifi, a colleague lent me a 60s LP comprising songs from Asian artistes. I heard this Indonesian/Dutch duo's version of Sukiyaki and loved it. It conjured up a picture of a little street in old Japan on a snowy foggy night. Romantic  ;D Don know wat made me but recently the tune came back to me and I hunted for the song and finally got it from ebay.

Yup, Osmose. Best place for metal LPs. I have to scratch my metal itch once a month. This Dark Tranquillity no choice, have to get. The clear vinyl is extremely limited, and I love these two albums.

The latest Wodensthrone has just been released in vinyl by Dark Descent, and is now available from Osmose. Feeling itchy already? :)

I just bought 7 LPs from Amazon USA.
The weight when it arrived at Borderlinx was 7.x kg!!!! (volumetric weight)   :-X :-X :-X

Lucky they repacked, and managed to reduce it to 4.x kg, so it was originally 3kg of air.
I was wondering why it was so heavy, until it arrived:

This is the box, Borderlinx had reduced the size of the box by cutting off much of the bottom area and re-taping the box. Kudos to them.

These are the LPs, each LP comes with it's own cardboard box!!!   :o :o

Another quite rare LP, bought it just for George Michael singing "Tonight", but the rest of the songs are fantastic too:

The best CCR collection is without a doubt the 8LP Analogue Productions 45rpm box set. It simply blow all versions away.

Wah! This looks good, but the price.......

Actually after listening to most of the LPs in that picture, only the Queen has a decent sound quality. The rest all sucked, especially the 2 colored vinyl - No Doubt and Katy Perry.
A shame, since I've been aiming for that No Doubt album for so long. I wonder if I can still find the non-colored version to compare?

I have the original pressing of Tragic Kingdom, and even that, I find the sound quality so-so only. I guess it's a hit or miss with the newer (post 90s) releases. But if you're are into bands like Rage Against The Machine, the debut LP sounds brilliant though.

Cool, thanks for the heads-up. Saves me the trouble of trawling eBay and paying a king's ransom.  ;)
Yeah, I agree. post-90s LPs are like lottery, some are very good while some are *meh*.
I have No Doubt's Rock Steady also, and it's just as bad.

Kylie's Abbey Road Sessions is very good though, I highly recommend that. (probably not your taste, Naglfar)
I've never heard Rage Against the Machine before, I'll go give it a try first.  ;D

From my experience, the sound of those lousy LPs can improve exponentially as I push the performance of my analog rig. So, its still worth to keep it and give it another try it as and when the analog rig performance improves.

Agreed. Unfortunately that is the case with vinyl based on my experience. To get a sizeable collection of the records to sound good is not difficult but to get most or all the records to sound good requires tremendous effort and probably $$$.

Alamak, the remastered stockfish 45rpm got eq'd until timbre all changed liao.
At least they pulled back the artificial reverb this time, compared to the earlier 33rpm.
Another $80 bucks gone down the drain.
But at least I know.
This is one of the rare time I play the original Fei Die LP with a needle in a long while.

At the Gates were one of the early progenitors of the Gothenburg sound (Swedish Melodic Death Metal). When I first heard this in 1996, I was like freaking blown away to pieces. Everything was so perfect about the album - the riffs were incredibly catchy, with the right amount of aggression, and Fredrik Nordstrom's production was simply perfect. To me, this album, together with Dark Tranquillity's The Gallery and In Flames' Jester Race, were the ones responsible for shaping one of the biggest genres in today's metal landscape.

I could have sworn my heart skipped a beat when I found this at Disk Union. I have been looking for this for years...and finally! This is the original 1995 1st pressing from Earache, in mint condition.

I wasn't there when Naglfar pulled the LP out in Tokyo but later when he showed it to me, his face was beaming like it was 4th July (sorry... 9th Aug just don't work anymore :)). If I recalled correctly he muttered words incoherently like "this album changed my life... Every day I check eBay but till today I have never seen this until just now... This album was the start of my journey... The day I heard this, it was the first day of the rest of my life."  :o

Okay... I embellished it a little bit. But most of it is true!  It was definitely the most expensive media purchase in Tokyo for Naglfar.

Some additions to my quest to own all the metal stuff that I grew up listening to in cassette when I was a kid.

Canada's Razor with their 1st album Executioner's Song (1984) and their brilliant 2nd album of speed metal mastery Evil Invaders, released later that year. All original Viper Records releases. Now I only need to find their 3rd one Malicious Intent, and my Razor catalog is done.
(http://img221.imageshack.us/img221/5674/razor.jpg)

Agent Steel's first 3 releases with the original line-up.
(http://img443.imageshack.us/img443/4268/steely.jpg)

LA's Holy Terror, their only 2 proper full-lengths released in 1987 and 1988.

...and a few more seminal thrash metal classics.

Was really hoping to find Whiplash's Power and Pain, Destructor's Maximum Destruction, Sacrifice's Torment In Fire...sooner or later I will have them  :)

Discovered a source of Hong Kong / Taiwan / local Chinese artistes LP. I saw a good stock of Leslie Cheung, George Lam,  Alan Tam and Gracie Rivera LPs. Of course Teresa Teng too. All cleaned and have new plastic covers. Price not cheap though, between $20 to $40 and above.

Also vintage hi-fi equipment sold there by Sansui, Nikko, Leak.

The shop is at 01-18 Golden Mile Tower (not to be confused with Golden Mile Shopping Complex). Open only on Sat from 11am to 5pm.

Spent about $600 for 35 LPs (2 English + 33 Malay) at Redpoint (Playfair Road) today. They have a lot of Malay, Tamil, Hindi & Chinese albums apart from English albums priced between $12 - $30.

Bro I wonder if there is any Malay rock LPs? Bands like Search, Wings, Bloodshed, Rusty Blade...?

Saw a few LPs of Malay Bands such as Carefree, BDB, Gingerbread etc, but didn't have time to "bongkar" other racks. I'm sure they may have...

Yes, all Canto. Not too bad. A few cover versions of English hits including Beverly Craven's Promise Me. I wonder if there's a original LP for this album. Mine is a 180g recent issue.

Bro CBT, that is a classick man! Makes me wonder just how many different vinyl versions are out there for this gem. Mine looks like this, released by Century Medie Germany:

Here is the partnering Live in Leipzig:

(http://img13.imageshack.us/img13/1003/lepizig.jpg)

It would be a dream come true to own the DSP version...but I guess this will do :-[

Speaking of black metal vinyls...check this out:

The seller is asking for a cool S$1500 for this! To me, this is not just another vinyl, but a piece of Black Metal history.... ;)

Some new stuff:

Who the fcuk is Sunn O))))? Yes, the band's name includes those right brackets. This probably the slowest, doomiest, heaviest, sludgiest drone/ambient/noise/soundscape vinyl in my collection, with hope of many more Sunn O)))) vinyls to come. Definitely not for the weak.

(http://img842.imageshack.us/img842/7474/63893409.jpg)
The most Swedish band to come out of Seattle!  ;)

and for some serious mindfcukery:
(http://img600.imageshack.us/img600/4536/swans.jpg)
Don't be deceived by the cute cover. Swans are as disturbing as music can get. This is the type of music that will slowly creep into your head and screws around with your subconscious, and leaves you all worn out after an intense 2 hours of music, but wanting for more. The Seer ended up in many mag's Top Albums of 2012, and was one of Steve Wilson's (Porcupine Tree) favorite for that year.

Just received Nails' debut LP from Amazon US. I got the LP shipped directly to SG, and for the first time, Amazon finally got the packaging right. In the past, they usually just dumped everything into one big box - not exactly the best way to send LPs. Now they have a dedicated LP mailer. Shipping wise also very decent - they charge around US$13 for 2 LPs. Kudos to them. It took about 1 week for the LP to arrive.

(http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/3939/20130330100252.jpg)

Speaking of Nails (the band) - I am just speechless. Because my brain just melted from what I think is the most ferocious and hateful record that I heard in a long time. These guys take no prisoner, and they waste no time in causing a total mass aural destruction. The 30-second opener "Conform" is one of the most explosive album openers I've ever heard. No nonsense intro here - they just blast away like a motherfcuking bulldozer trampling on a garden of pink daisies, and you might just sh!t in your pants if you're unprepared. An incredible album that lasted for a mere 13 minutes - too short to some, and maybe too long to those uninitiated.

Here is something darker (an understatement). And believe it or not, they're from Singapore. Just love the artwork, and looks damn awesome next to my Surrender of Divinity LP.

Bro CBT....very nice haul there. I was tempted to get all those Earache reissues, but decided to go for some other stuff first. Bolt Thrower is a classic, I more or less just completed my BT CD collection, though I can't say that I enjoyed the first 2, as compared to their later ones. Their first 2 has more grindcore influences, whereas their later one are full of killer riffs, and more polished sounding. Nevertheless, and excellent band that should be in every respectable metalhead's collection.

Abhorer - I thought I better buy early before it goes out of print. This one is clear vinyl bro. And the artwork speaks for itself. Kvlt stuff.
Title: Re: What LPs have you just bought?
Post by: Chowbotak on April 03, 2013, 13:41
Bro, the main reason I chose the 2 Earache LPs is their recording. Somehow I find their reissue LPs sound much better than many other labels' reissues or even new releases.

hi - everyone @ Xtreme Place forum,

vinyls get mouldy after a few months, this is due to our very humid climate here.

i render vinyl cleaning service for the avid lp lovers for a small fee (how small ?),
please call to enquire. After cleaning (using VPI), the vinyls are then put into new
paper sleeves. Satisfaction guarranteed. However, this cleaning service will not
be available for the next six months, beginning end of April. Usual service resumes
late Nov 2013. Any inconvenience is much regretted.
Do call Varian @ 96420010 for questions/discussions, thank you.

Just ordered 3 LPs from them. Cost of shipping US$12.96! Almost tempted tk get more as cos if I order another one, charges will only be US$14.95, cheaper than Osmose! But of course, no surcharge are imposed by Osmose even if the LPs are heavier, even if its a 7 discs box set! But of course, DD has loads of other stuff besides metal!

The shop's auntie in her 40s, who barely speak English surely know her stuff well and was really helpful.. Price for LPs are about > $10 and are well cleaned. Eric Clapton - Unplugged Korean pressed is only $10.
Managed to grab best of Janis Iain - jap pressed for a song.

No need to get the K2/XRCD2SHM if you have the 1:1 IMHO.

I actually have 2 of the 1:1s. Still not sure why. I bought the LP from Richard but I accidentally left it behind in Singapore. :(

Bro Hanzo, so how was the Japan trip? Where did you go to buy LPs? Nice haul there! Bro CBT, the most important thing you will when you go there - a good bag to carry all the LPs. Don't check them in, because they are freaking heavy and will just eat up your luggage allowance..

I just came back too...did a stopover there on the way back from the US. My turn to post some pics  ;)

Finally, Artillery's Fear of Tomorrow and Sacrifice's Torment in Fire. 2 classic titles that I grew up listening to.

Title: Yokohama Recofan / Disk Union / Book Off
Post by: naglfar on July 23, 2013, 16:38
Thanks bro Yellofit....the location to the best LP joints are all in my head  ;)

To bros who are thinking of visiting Yokohama and doing some music shopping, here are some tips. The train station at Yokohama is pretty huge, and if you take the wrong exit, it won't be an easy task getting the bearings right.

I usually go to Yokohama via Shibuya. Take the Toyoko Line, fare is 260 yen from Shibuya. Remember to take the express train (or limited express, even faster), it makes less stop. Stop at Yokohama station, and once you are out of the train, take the escalator up. Once you've tapped out your Suica card, look out for the WEST exit. You should see  a Tourist Information Office on your left, which is just after the escalator. You can go in to get a pretty decent map of Yokohama from there. Anyway, walk straight and follow the WEST exit sign. You should be taking one more flight of stairs / escalator. Right in front of you, there should be some signs that says Diamond Shopping Center, with stairs going down. Do not take this, but turn left, and walk straight. You should see this:

(http://img826.imageshack.us/img826/5443/vqg7.jpg)

Just walk through this shopping center, and after maybe 100m, you should see a corner shop that sell expensive Japanese fruits on your left. I think the shop is called Mizunobu or something, can't really remember. There are doors on your right, take that door and follow the road. After maybe 50m, this sight should greet you:

(http://img59.imageshack.us/img59/5743/1e56.jpg)

You should see a Book-off on your right, and if you walk a bit more:

(http://img18.imageshack.us/img18/3600/kyma.jpg)
Continue walking and MacDonalds should be on your left. You will see a Supermart on your right. Food, snacks and drinks are cheap there, so go for it. Recofan is located on the 4th floor of this supermart. A bit more in front, there is a Tokyu Hands. Take a left turn, and walk for about 100m, and look for the Disk Union sign on your left.

 :) :)

Knn I better look for a pail now cos my saliva dripping non stop!  ;D Bro, I am flying by budget airline so my hand carry luggage will be very limited. I have however bot luggage allowance of 35kg and I think can also tongpang my son's 25kg. I was thinking of gettin cartons from the post office to hold LPs and CDs. I hope its enough. U think 35kg amounts to how many LPs and CDs? :D Another question, how's the metal selection at Yokohama? Still figuring if I can squeeze in some time to hoot there cos 2 and a half day already burned by tours

 I didn't know Disk Union is nearby too.
The last time I was in Yokohama Recofan, there were less than 2 customers in the LP section and I was  spoilt for choice. Strangely, I also found many mint US/UK pressed LPs.
However, be warned that though used Jap pressed LPs look well packaged and mint, I find they sound a bit dry and not so vibrant. I guess the recordings match their bright HIFI system those days. As such, I don't quite like Jap recordings.

Thanx bro aegis, guess I was too eager, booked the tickets in May. It came up to $600+ too when I bot the extra baggage allowance, better seats and stuff. The attraction of the Scoots flights was the timing of the flights which suits me very well.

Bro aegis, when was the last time you flew Delta? I can't be sure, but I think they only allow 1 free check in now. But United allows 2. I flew with United last March, and Delta time time around.

Bro CBT, I have never tried hauling a 35kg luggage around before. That is freaking heavy man. My usual practise is to bring around 50 CDs, and maybe about 30 - 50 pieces of LPs. All this can be done with just one piece of check-in, and hand carrying the LPs. Chances are you will go crazy when you first step into Disk Union, but you have to pace yourself otherwise you will run out of funds pretty fast. For metal LPs, hit Disk Union at Ochanomizu first, then Shibuya and Shinjuku. Those are the best places, especially if you're looking for death, black and satanic underground nuts. the Disk Union at Ochanomizu usually has some kind of discount too, especially if you buy a lot. Recofan is probably better for more mainstream stuff especially for LPs. For mainstream CDs, I try to drop by at any Book Off that I see, and hit the ¥250 section. You will never kow what gem you will find there.

Check your PM  :)

I flew in the May period, just checked and it seems like intra asia they are still using the US piece concept (http://www.delta.com/content/www/en_US/traveling-with-us/baggage/before-your-trip/checked.html?icid=Policy_Ck_Baggage_Ongoing).
UA currently only allows one I just checked.

I agree that carrying 35kg is tough, you can only do it if it's straight from hotel to airport. I lugged 40kg in the UK before and had to take train to move from a small town to Manchester airport, nearly died. Never gonna do that stunt again.  ::)

I can confirm Delta is 2 pieces of 23kg. Just double confirmed with the staff last week. At least for Japan anyway.

Now in Hokkaido, fantastic place!

Bro aegis, when was the last time you flew Delta? I can't be sure, but I think they only allow 1 free check in now. But United allows 2. I flew with United last March, and Delta time time around.

Bro CBT, I have never tried hauling a 35kg luggage around before. That is freaking heavy man. My usual practise is to bring around 50 CDs, and maybe about 30 - 50 pieces of LPs. All this can be done with just one piece of check-in, and hand carrying the LPs. Chances are you will go crazy when you first step into Disk Union, but you have to pace yourself otherwise you will run out of funds pretty fast. For metal LPs, hit Disk Union at Ochanomizu first, then Shibuya and Shinjuku. Those are the best places, especially if you're looking for death, black and satanic underground nuts. the Disk Union at Ochanomizu usually has some kind of discount too, especially if you buy a lot. Recofan is probably better for more mainstream stuff especially for LPs. For mainstream CDs, I try to drop by at any Book Off that I see, and hit the ¥250 section. You will never kow what gem you will find there.

Check your PM  :)

Those who plan to buy a LOT, do take note that imported goods from overseas are subject to gst (but then I think nowadays they're giving tax relief, can't be too sure though). Anyway, it's wise not to overexpose your acquisitions at the customs. :D

So far, i have never been stopped at the airport for GST, only for bringing in some toy weapons. I tot the $400 applies for one item only right? So they can't impose GST unless one of the LPs or CDs cost $400. Tio bo?

Nope, the $400 is for the TOTAL of all chargeable items. For airport it's been raised to $600.

But I swear, all the different immigration officers have different interpretations of the GST ruling. I've been charged a few times, both at airport and for postage items, and all of them have different ways to calculate the derived gst amount.

BINGO! Yes these 2 albums. Great presence when I play then. A very direct immediate sound with no electronic artefacts. My prized Shadows records is their Greatest Hits in mono under Columbia label circa 1963

Currently these are the only 2 copies of The Shadows which i own now as i have sold most of them away during the early 90's and had them replaced by Cd's. 

And yes the recording for Ventures produces a very vibrant sound so bright and analogue as though someone is playing live in front of you the moment when the stylus hit the groove.

Not the same Shadows album, but I suspect the usual signature tunes like Apache, Guitar Tango, Kon-Tiki and Foot Tapper will be common.  A good collection of records you must have.

Compared Apache and Riders in the sky tune, i prefer The Shadows Version. As for The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, i prefer The Ventures Version.

I think silencer has explained well enough on the gst. Yep last time they charged on my stuff as one lot, not individual items.  The gst amount I paid was insignificant anyway.

My friend hauled back 2 turntables from shan shui po HK, another one always brought back some vintage Amp too. Others brought a pair of Bookshelf speakers from europe and etc. Maybe those who pays the EXTRA GST was very lucky every time or only sometime whenever they bring back something from overseas trip but ends up like tio bey bio gana 1st prize to go queue pay GST at our Airport.

Considering I spent almost 4 weeks there, I bought VERY FEW LPs. Was hard to find what I wanted.

But on the plus side, they were very cheap! I think less than $200 for all these 18 LPs.

Hi bigtree, how does Tracy huang new LP sound, can you share with us?

hvn't spin yet. Still listening to my HK purchases...

Problem with recent LP release now: as prints are limited for some LPs and if you dun buy when it is release, prices goes up.

这十年来收集黑胶唱片中,如有特别喜欢的,都会多买一两张。

作为spare吗。唱片多玩终会被磨损。

当年在音响店职位时经常播放这张爵士兼新世纪音乐键盘手Keiko Matsui No Borders CD专集作为顾客购买音响器材键听盘。音效特别出色,很有杀伤力,卖了不少套价值不斐高档器材。

听传说当年美国唱片公司MCA不单只发行CD,也同部发行黑胶唱片。但十年来我上网ebay搜寻了这么久,它简直是百无一见,我到最近还不信它真的有存在。偶然的跟朋友谈起,他建议上discorg去搜寻看看。结果不负所望,发现了三张, 我一口气三张都把它们都买下。

Wow, you win. The branch at Ikebukuro is one of the bigger one already. You can also try the ones @ Shibuya (near Disk Union / Recofan area). Sometimes it is not just how big the branch is, but the stuff that they have. If you are going to Akihabara, there is a branch there too - not bad.

Enjoy bro.

My guess is - pull out 1-by-1.
I can read Katakana, but I will still pull out 1-by-1 to see the album art. Too lazy to translate.

I relied on those with those non Jap pressed cds which will have English titles and pull out those with Jap wordings near them. I didnt pull out every freakin cds so may have missed some gems.

Bro CBT,

How to look for stuff? All in Japanese. Is it sorted by artist?

Sorted by alphabetical order, and by price (250yen, 500yen, and above). It's an orgy (which is a good thing), so you have to glance  through the spine one by one just like a library. Shiok for 10 minutes, but after a while, it does get tiring. Want to look for rare stuff, must persevere. What to do, right? Most of the stuffs here are NOT Japanese pressings, so if the obi strip is not there, chances are that the spines are in English. If the obi strip is there, pull just out the CD and look at the cover lah - if it's something you like, then it's fcuking A, isn't it?

Our brother CBT can hoot 28 CDs in 90 mins - average of 1 CD every 3 minutes of browsing, that's quite impressive! I remember my one of my trip with 2 of the bros here, I don't think anyone hit more than 25 in a single trip. Or did you, WEB? Haha.  Like I always say, if you are a music lover, then there is no better place in this planet than Tokyo to buy your music.

I want to go bro. Heck... I already changed lots of Yen in anticipation but my wife and my bros can't go with me  :'(. Go alone is no fun.

Ok ok....next year. You are right, go alone is NOT as fun. I did that 2 months ago.  ;D

Yeah, that's the way to do it. Leave hotel and have breakfast together, adjourn to the agreed destination, then split and meet for dinner :) The last time I was alone because I did a stopover in Tokyo on the way back from a business trip in the US.

Ok I just quote this in case you break your promise :)

For you, I will try my best  ;)

Oops, that Von album is actually a cd packed within a booklet. Its their demo, Satanic Blood. The reason I bot it was a song called "Watain" I just have to buy it cos Watain got their name from this song!!!

Most metal stuff I got from Ochanomizu bro. I really over-estimated the time I will have for myself there. Still, my baggage weight went over 35kg! Feel like going again next week  ;D

Next to Regurgitate is The Satan Scourge, from Colombia.

Yes, just login to your Paypal account and file a dispute. The seller would have no choice but to reply you to settle it.

短短一个星期之间买了好几张劉文正東尼機構系列的黑胶唱片。東尼機構系列則是老板王振敬先生邀請許多台灣藝人包括劉文正到新加坡灌錄的。所以你如找到新马版,放胆的买,它们就是头版,声音是很不错的。

其中这张阿美阿美转集是分别从阿雕菲跟红点买的。开始播放时觉得两张有显然不同的音效。红点那张频率不延升。跟同批红点买的好几张都有这同样问题。依照我个人經验这是关系到之前买者所用的洗洁济。

这张我特地用 distilled water 洗了三次,结果频率延升有显然的进步。我在 ELP Laser Turntable 里连续的播放,听得也漫 enjoy。

而上个月我也买了劉文正東尼機構系列的整套 CD。开始有点尖,但经过几次重附的播放,音效变得更柔,更丰满。
要牢牢记住 - CD 是越玩会越好听的。 ;D

By the way, I got my recent vinyl from this eBay seller:

Just want to recommend them because their shipping is very fair. I paid GBP13+ for 8 vinyl.
Vinyl also all arrived in excellent condition.

Happiness is - getting 45RPM singles of the music you've always loved:

Got them from a UK eBay seller called Espirit International Limited (EIL).
They also have a website eil.com

They're not cheap, Vinyl Tap (another eBay store) are definitely much cheaper, but their selection is very good.
Some of these records I've been looking high and low for a very long time and they had them..... like the Sinead O'Connor and the Prince Arms of Orion.

To me, this is how you make the "perfect" vinyl:

Take a great album
(http://winstonlow.com/forum_pix/Alanis-Morisette-Unplugged-overview.jpg)

Make it a gatefold
(http://winstonlow.com/forum_pix/Alanis-Morisette-Unplugged-gatefold.jpg)

Make it Limited Edition......
(http://winstonlow.com/forum_pix/Alanis-Morisette-Unplugged-sticker.jpg)

......to only 1,000 copies
(http://winstonlow.com/forum_pix/Alanis-Morisette-Unplugged-limited.jpg)

And give it one heck of a kickass color
