This LP next.  It appears to be the 1963 mono US release.  It's not in bad shape considering it's 50 years old...better shape than me...hehe.

Too bad it's re-channeled stereo. . . Great music.

Lon, my copy is definitely Mono. †I checked with only left then right channels using the CSP3 voltage dials. †My album doesn't have that wording at the top of the album...at discogs there was no picture of the mono LP so that was the best I could find. †It is wonderful Stan Getz recorded in 1949 and 1950...highly recommended in any format. †Mark.

PS...here's one on ebay. †It is exactly like mine minus the "Princeton Record Exchange" price sticker on the upper left corner....mine even has RVG in the Dead.
Wax.http://www.ebay.ca/itm/STAN-GETZ-Greatest-Hits-PRESTIGE-7256-MONO-NJ-/1411084861...

PSS...This LP could stand a good cleaning.  I got my record cleaner from UPS yesterday and may do a batch tomorrow.  Lon, how many do you clean with the same water in the bath? The website had said up to 50 LPs. that seems quite high.  The solution added to the water bath is supposed to cause the dirt to sink to the bottom though.  Mark.

Good. Mono is better, always going to sound better than fake stereo! But hell you know that. I just don't buy fake stereo if I can help it.

I usually do about 20 lps at a time and toss out the water. Depends I guess on how many you want to clean in a session and how dirty they were. I haven't cleaned any lps since April and my move. . . One of these days but I have no time!

This next LP is in amazing shape...sounds great. It is a compilation of Commodore Jazz Classics released in Stereo in 1964 by the Mainstream Label. †56009 mono, S 6009 stereo - 52 Street - Holiday, Webster, & Others [1964]

Thanks Lon, I think I'll have 30 or 40 pulled to clean and just watch the water. †Mark.

PS...not only Stereo but "Spectrosonic" Stereo...hehe.  My question is why bother?  All these old recordings were originally recorded in MONO so even though it's stereo it still sounds mono...go figure.

This is track one side one...a little Lady Day from 1944.

Yes, I don't know why they bother. I love Commodore material. I have all of it that I transferred to CDR from a friend's Mosaic lps sets. And I have quite a bit on two lp reissues from when Atlantic owned Commodore, the Atlantic reissues I think sound better than the Columbia, etc. reissues on lp.

Right now, Haydn symphonies. Oops, though Dad requested them, they put both he and Mom to sleep on the couch.

I'm half way through this LP. †The photo is of a stereo copy mine is mono from 1963. †It's in great shape and sounds great. †When I bought the Mosaic †14 Various single LPs, I was the only bidder ($100 plus 17.5 shipping), the seller had 21+ LPs (several are box sets counted as one LP in the auction) and the single Mosaic #119 The Pete Johnson/Earl Hines/Teddy Bunn Blue Note Sessions up for auction with starting bids of $25 and $12 respectively...I hadn't even seen them. †He emailed me and asked if I'd be interested in them for $25 and no additional shipping.....Hell, yes was my answer. †Then he sent me another email asking if I wanted an opened but mint/unplayed copy of Bill Evans Complete Recordings on Riverside box on CD for $45. †I quickly tried to locate mine and could only find the box with one of three jewel cases in it, so I bought that too. †With each side I spin the happier I am with my purchase. †Mark.

Listening to the Steve Wilson remastered Thick as a Brick in FLAC.

Holy Crap this remix brought this album to life! It's a bit dry though, reminds me of when I replaced the factory input tube on my Zen Amp with a 6922. But still, the stereo separation and individual instruments really pop in this remaster!

That Thick as a Brick remix is pretty good. . . I know the original so well that the remix is sortof odd to me. Same with Benefit and Aqualung, albums I've known even longer. . . . Wilson does good work, but if you first encountered the albums when first released, it's hard to accept these remixes as "better." If you're a bit younger (and Wilson himself is) I can see being bowled over by it.

Same with his new Close to the Edge remix. . .he does a great job. But my favorite on the Blu-ray is the straight hi res transfer of the original mix. Beautiful!
