Wore out my vinyl copy of Linda Ronstadt’s “Don’t Cry Now”. So had to get the CD. Love her version of the song “Colorado”. She has such a beautiful voice.
And being from Colorado had to get Neil Young’s “Colorado” CD.

Was looking forward to these 2 Boz Scaggs LPs but I opened them and Slow Dancer had horrible mold on the cover and sleeve and of course on the vinyl...threw out the cover and sleeve ASAP and kindly asked for a refund..I mean..really??? Dude, CHECK them before shipping ...Description was "VG"... I guess the MOLD was VERY GOOD!!!! I´d even say..MINT!!!!!
Photographic proof (...yikes!!)

Damn bro. Don't like Styx? Darn it. I think their older catalogue is effing amazing.
I don't hate them, they're just not my thing. (Although I have to admit that while listening I was kind of digging "Fooling Yourself" :) ). I was in high school in the late 70's/early 80's. The arena rock that was coming out of America at the time didn't really interest me. I was more into what was coming out of England. I'll take XTC & Tears For Fears over Journey or Loverboy. Different strokes.... :phones

Got a great haul LP from a seller in Japan...minty Japanese pressings ...for about $55 including insanely fast shipping thru DHL!

(no OBI on this one but the vinyl is great! hope it sounds better than the crappy CD I got!)


Love the top OBI on this one


No OBI on this one either..but, yup.. minty!


Now I have a Japanese pressing of my favorite ´Smith LP, and yes, the OBI is beautiful...got the USA pressing with the white sticker on top

4ears are you decoding the MQA through the oppo 205?
I suppose it would be difficult to compare it to a cd version as masterings are different.
I am just unsure if this is a format worth getting or not...….like we don't have enough already.

And what is a pro grade MQA decoder?

Whoop whoop (pull up... pull up!!!!)
Hurray for the 80s!
Nice little haul...

Had to have this one AGAIN ..I did have it once on LP but alas, it probably ran away... cause I can´t believe they did NOT offer the original mix on the DVD since the remix is a revisionist one , i. e., don´t TOUCH Phil´s gated drums, please...and they did... got a Columbia House pressing..IIRC these were a gamble...some of them were better and some were not...put another record on...


Now these are BOTH on Transluscent vinyl! Three cheers for the late 80's pressings...hiphip...
I always liked this LP and I got it on CD back in the day so I thought I´d get it on LP...what´s gonna happen to us , indeed!


I never bought this one back in the day cause my roommates had it! Another cheap and great pressing..dig the transluscent slab!!!! We are all Sleepwakers indeed...
