I think I have found vinyl nirvana listening to Natalie Merchant - Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs 45rpm 180grm direct master pressing of Tigerlily, has to be the best vinyl pressing I have ever heard.

Yes but does it make you want to shake your cosmic thing?

It makes something shake ! Seriously I have listened to £10000 + hard drive based systems and still nothing can come close to reproducing the seperation and musicality of a decent vinyl setup. Yes the hairs did stand up on the back of my neck when I listened to it, was a bit pricey but worth every penny.

77 is my favourite but it's up there, some great song writing with the title track the standout for me on Little Creatures.

77 is a superb album as were most of the others. I don't think they released a dud until Naked.

I think it is as a result of personal relationships / memories rather than the music

 

But I would rather have my plums poached than listen to David Byrne and any of his works.

 

I fully appreciate that is my loss, but so it must remain.

Most of my music makes me feel old, I remember first hearing it and thought it sounded like nothing I had heard before. It still sounds fresh now.
