Put the `40`s GE 5u4G in and the rooms filling up with this album, almost ambient, could be the album though, its laid back`n`funky

Marky, when I read the liner notes to my CD version of "Waiting for Columbus" it got me reading more about Little feat.  Apparently during the recording of the album you listened to, Lowell George and the rest of the Band had a lot of distrust and tension....as such the writer of the comments said this album, though good, did not receive the high production care Lowell George was capable of. But anything with Lowell George is great in my opinion.

The next LP is EMIL GILELS playing BEETHOVEN SONATEN # 15 PASTORALE #13 on Deutsche Grammophon...I can't find a photo of the jacket but it is in this set on Amazon.  I'm getting my ears ready for the Complete String Quartets of Beethoven that are on their way to me. This was a sealed LP...it's beautiful. I think Emil Gilels died a few years after this recording in 1983(?) at age 69 before completing the cycle of Beethoven Sonatas, so the box set on Amazon is not complete.  Mark.

This is the album cover, but I'm listening to the version in the Mosaic Jackie McLean vinyl box set.



I have this Mosaic in both cd and vinyl versions. The vinyl smokes the cd.

Lon,  I've got a lot of single CDs of McLean but he's not a favorite.  I haven't listened in a long time but I recall his tone being very sharp...edgy...does that sound right.  I'm jealous, I have neither of the Mosaic sets...vinyl or CD.  It seems only fair that you mail one to me...hehe.

Next LP...this is sounding very good...released in 1985, this is another of the many sealed LPs waiting for their first spin.  Mark.

It took me a while to get into McLean's tone. Yes, sharp, edgy. It's not actually sharp, that is for the most part his intonation is correct but there is a sharp overtone to the sound. But it does set him apart, and gives a certain lift to his sound. He had an amazing musical mind. . . took me a while to "get it" but when I did, I began to relish it.

Right now

Mark, I bought the album when I read very good things about it. I must say it was one that had escaped me. While I was waiting for it, couple of months ago, I read another report...they were burned out...Lowell George blah blah. First time I played it wasn`t overwhelmed, kind of ok. That was a result of reading the dampening  article.
Now this is a recording of them live, maybe selected from a dozen shows.
Playing it again I enjoyed it much more, making myself rise above a preconcieved expectation. `Sailing shoes` a little slow, but different. This time round I wasn`t looking for faults and from manically thinking my amps had lost power (fatman singing in the bathtub?) I got into it.Yeah it`s all there.
At the time..the gig..christ he was a big lump, everyone (me and my regular gigging friends) just wanted that slide guitar to go on. It was a lovely, cosy atmosphere.

LP now... Beethoven's String Quartet In C-Sharp Minor, Op. 131...LP #3 of 4.  Very Nice.

PS...the software for my computer arrived so I'm going off line to wipe and restore.  Also Fedex made a delivery...I thought it was a batch of 36 albums I bought but no, it was the Running Springs Audio  Jaco Power conditioner I had forgotten I ordered.  So all Hi Fi equipment is off and the Jaco and the RCA Black Plate 12AU7 will go in the system later. Until Tomorrow, Mark.

Just realized that this is the first time all the material was issued, and the first time that Rudy Van Gelder's location recording from '57 was released in STEREO. Sounds quite nice!

I'm back in the Listening Cave for the rest of the night.  The laptop's back in service. I previously had occasional distortion on my speakers with some frequencies...it wasn't too bothersome.  When I replaced the RSA Haley Power Conditioner with the Jaco, I moved it as far away from the ZP3 and TT as possible.  After 3 sides, I haven't heard any distortion.  Rerouting all power cords must have done the trick. The RCA Black Plate 12AU7 is back in.  I can hear a noticeable improvement with the Jaco...can it get any better?

This LP just finished...
