Earlier this week a buddie of mine sold me a Pioneer reciever from 1974-75 for $20.00  I hooked my turntable and dvd -vcr combo to it with my late 70's American Acoustic Lab tower speakers. The modern Pioneer reciever that I have been using does not hold a candle to this old reciever man. The tone and warmth is incredible. It is a silver faced unit which still looks cool. The blue lights on the am/fm showcase with the stereo light and the blue lighted meter looks so amazing with the bedroom lights off. Those records of mine sound so good. I am a happy man.

Mary Mary, I have not heard that one. Is it one of those cool nighttime romantic albums ?

I had the day off today and had several hours to listen to lp's. One of the records that I listened to is one that I bought several years ago and not listened to it until today. It is a self titled lp from Tammy Grimes. She has the most interesting voice.  Some of the others that I listened to today were Robin Trower- Bridge Of Sighs, Cirith Ungol - King Of The Dead, Tom Petty & The  Heartbreakers - self titled from 1976 and Bruce Springsteen - Nebraska which will be talked about next week on the Bruce Springsteen appreciation thread.

I had the day off which gave some time to listen to lp's. One that I listened to was Steely Dan - Aja. I was familiar with four of the seven songs on the record. That is one amazing piece with a mixture of rock and jazz songwriting. Steely Dan has to be considered amongst the best of rock bands.

John Prine - 1st album (One of my favorite songwriters)
Ron Carter - Parade 9(The most amazing bass player that I have heard. Checkout his resume.)
Thelonious Monk - Straight No Chaser
Earl Klugh - Solo Guitar
Waylon Jennings - Honkeytonk Heroes( This is a must for country music lovers. Billy Joe Shaver wrote most of the songs and it is in my top ten country albums of all time)
Charlie Mingus - Blues & Roots( I cannot wait to hear this album)
Triumph - Never Surrender
Joe Satriani - Surfing With The Alien
Tower Of Power - self titled
Marshall Tucker Band - Where We All Belong
Rush - 1st album( This was before Neil Peart joined the band. This record rocks hard man. You can hear Geddy Lee's Led Zeppelin influence big time in his vocals.)

Jazz does sound great on vinyl Gant. You have good taste man.
I picked up a super clean copy of Bob James- Touchdown.  I listened to it over the weekend and to hear the song Angela(Theme song from Taxi) in its entirety was very cool. That song is one long jam session.
