Mark, I have loved this lp since it was released too, and my lp copy shows it, it's very worn. I'll have to get a new one soon.

The new gold cd from Audio Fidelity is AWESOME, recommended for anyone who likes this album.

Right now I'm listening to a late symphony from Haydn. My Dad and I are trying to get into this and ignore my Mom's foul mood and paranoia brought on by constant messages she is receiving via the walls and houses across the street due to her dementia. Sigh. It's been really rough these last weeks.

Just finishing this LP.  I liked 70's Tangerine Dream...very trippy sonic landscapes.  I think it was movie soundtracks through which I discovered them.  During side one of this album you will recognize parts that were used for the train sequence in "Risky Business".  This is the title track..."Force Majeure"  Mark.

Just finishing this LP.  This was recorded in 1966 when Laura Nyro was 19 years old and released on Verve's Folkways label. I have the Columbia reissue from 1973 re-titled "First Songs".  No matter what the title or order of the songs, this is amazing.  I love every bit of Laura...there's too little.  Mark.

Earlier this morning I listened to this LP.  I don't recommend it though I found it enjoyable. Jim Hall and Chet Baker played well. Electric keyboard and Electric bass where I'd prefer acoustic...many of the CTI recordings of the 70's and 80's were often more "electric" than I liked.  Mark.

LP spinning now...it's a very good collaboration of Richie Cole and Art Pepper recorded in February of 1982.  Art would die in June.  This was released later in 1982. No samples on you tube or spotify.  Mark.

The next LP...a nice Ltd Edition direct to disc.  Very quiet and well recorded. Mark.  PS... No samples found. It is on spotify though.

I was just thinking about getting some ZZ Top from HD Tracks. That's one of my favorite albums as well!

@Lonely Raven

'Blue Jeans Blues' is one of my fav's from this record ... of course ~ I still like Tush (in more ways than one Grin) even though it's been over exposed through so much airplay.  

A friend ripped my ZZ Top vinyl collection to HD FLAC ... he did such a good job that its hard to tell the difference from the wax and I don't know if I could tell the difference from vinyl and the FLAC tracks in a blind test.  IMO I think vinyl ripped is getting very close to vinyl itself.  I still would give vinyl the edge for staying all analog, but scary close.

On my way home from work I picked up a set with 3 albums on two CDs.  This is the one I listened to on my way home...very nice.  Mark.
