Tube amp, huh? I sense an audiophile present...
Avatar    Sat. 8/19/17 9:18am Behemoth-Cat:

I try. I use a digital to analog converter sometimes. Ok I admit it.
Avatar    Sat. 8/19/17 9:20am Behemoth-Cat:

My table top radio is a KHL remember those. State of the Art. Sounds so good still its crazy.
Avatar    Sat. 8/19/17 9:21am Behemoth-Cat:

The tube amp is mostly for records or tapes.

3o years listener sorta new to ACCU and know DJ by their voices... funny, and fun.

When I was in the other room, I thought it was Django Reinhardt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 8/19/17 9:37am doctorjazz:

Eddie Lang is the oddest guitar player (missed it today, working, but know the music well). Sometimes he sounds great-sometimes his time sounds stiff and somehow "off" to me.

(waiting for Uncle Michael to sign off...)

@drjazz I was a bit disoriented there for a moment

Thanks for playing the great Dennis Wilson. Excellent.

Re: Albatross
The genius of Peter Green -- sounding like David Gilmour before there really was a "David Gilmour"! ;) Peter blueprinted the style for 'im.

Q on Sunday, have my tix!
  Sat. 8/19/17 10:21am Nordstrom:

It would be really cool to have a photo of Bob waiting on line at an Arby's.
  Sat. 8/19/17 10:23am Nordstrom:

Because that would be Bob in an Arby queue.

Odessa - The Brothers Gibb's masterpiece
  Sat. 8/19/17 10:26am Nordstrom:

@fred, I fear I am rapidly becoming my grandfather.
  Sat. 8/19/17 10:26am Hubadoo:

Nice one, Nordstrom. I'd be really tickled if I weren't so simultaneously sickened right now. ; )
  Sat. 8/19/17 10:29am Hubadoo:

Ahh, so the punny gene runs deep and proud in your people. Good on ya.

Listeners near Berkeley: Down Home Records in El Cerrito will host a parking lot record meet tomorrow a.m. beginning at 8:00. The lot is small, but it's a fun vibe and there are deals aplenty.
  Sat. 8/19/17 10:30am Nordstrom:

So are you saying you're sickled? Or tickened?
  Sat. 8/19/17 10:30am SeanG:

captain memphis!

(Based on my experience at the last meet, I should mention.)

I have that velvet BG record.
Elliott Smith was my little secret that exploded on the scene. I was buying his 7"inches in the city and next thing i know...
  Sat. 8/19/17 10:36am Hubadoo:

I am, of course, bequeasymused. Elaborately belabored, but there you are. Thank you.
  Sat. 8/19/17 10:37am Lawrence Stevenson:

In 1969, when I was twelve, I stood lookout for a friend as he shoplifted the Odessa album from a department store in Jacksonville, Florida. Hadn't thought about that for years. Thanks for the memory!

5000 fingers was just on the movies channel (5.2 in nyc) this morning.

@Nordstrom: there's a song for that. I don't remember who sang "I'm my own grandpa", but I'm sure I heard it on this station before

I saw a copy of the flocked Odessa at a record store recently, probably should have gotten it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 8/19/17 10:46am melinda:

Nice Brummels.
  Sat. 8/19/17 10:46am Dean:

Same here, @melinda. At Down Home, in fact. Didn't check the condition, can't remember the price.

Brummels rule!

I'm not a good record shopper, don't know what things are worth and like to snatch up scratchy cheap Salvation Army stuff.
Avatar    Sat. 8/19/17 10:50am Behemoth-Cat:

I need to take better care of my records. They are gentle, a really good turntable properly skated helps a little.

@Smoking J whats up its Waking Bacon :) - passes the "Dutchie"

Bob I'm curious to know your thoughts on the Beau Brummels '66 lp.

Bebop lives!
  Sat. 8/19/17 10:54am Dean:

I'm a so-so shopper, but I bet a copy of Odessa in good shape could command a high price.

@Behemoth-Cat: One of Simon Nabatov's records is a tribute to the Bulgakov novel.
