3 Sep 2020 EU box set.  All analogue.  Just finishing the 4th album.  The Bob Welch era of the Mac has been largely ignored in all the reissuing frenzy. This set does these albums total justice.  Got it for the concert which I have a couple parts captured back in the original Napster daze.  A radio concert from KSAN hosted by Tom Donahue from the Record Plant in 1974.  It is extraordinary.  Like sitting in a cozy little bar listening to the Mac if you've never had the chance to hear this concert.  Stripped down, raw and live.  Compared my 1st of Mystery To Me with this version.  This version is actually much improved without losing a thing.  The other albums are also just as good.

This is a great way to fill a hole in your collection if you've ever been thinking about any of these albums.
{#Cheers}

That is pretty much the explanation for a lot of holes in my collection.  Vertigo was a bigger deal in Europe than here in the states as a label.  My Alex Harvey and a couple of others are on Vertigo but they are English copies.  Vertigo was Phillips which was Mercury records also here in the states and seemed to have more bands not in the real middle of things but definitely had their own thing going.  Add Uriah Heep to the list.  Rod Stewart was Mercury's big name back then, IIRC.

Just got done with a seven hour marathon declicking of Autobahn.  Well over 300 markers for mouseclicks and pencil edits.  But hey, I do like long stuff like this where a good riff is not wasted and thoroughly exploited.  I did sit through an hour long version of Inna Gadda DaVida live at the old Electric Factory in Philly when it was a new song. And liked every minute of it.  What has struck me so much about Autobahn is how much it sounds like Tubular Bells, only better more interesting.  Lot's more of swirling synths and flanging / phasing in and out of other things.  This still actually sounds good after all of these years, not on a regular basis, but I do appreciate it as a composition.

Somewhere I have some Bonzo Dog Band with Intro and Outro, IIRC.  Gonna have to look for that.


Cheers !
 
I think Oldfield and Kraftwerk may have had some similar influences: some of those "experimental" and the musique concrète scenes from France and Germany in the 1950s and '60s.  I prefer Kraftwerk to Oldfield too.  Autobahn still had several acoustic instruments on it; by the next album they had gone entirely electronic.  I had read that they fabricated some of their "instruments" like rhythm machines and modified keyboards.
I have an import re-issue copy of the first Bonzo album "Gorilla".  It's on another unusual label - Sunset Records - which I think was a "budget" division of Liberty or UA, used for re-issues and compilations.

Vertigo Records - those were probably the only records I had on that label, though I think Black Sabbath and Thin Lizzy released some stuff in the US on that label as well.  I didn't buy those records but friends of mine had them.

One of my dearest friends runs a great vinyl store in Austin. Groover's Paradise.

Times are tough, but he's doing better than most. One of the things he's doing is showing a few of his records, explaining why they're special, and selling them that way. He's got decades of the music biz behind him and everyone loves him. (Steve Forbert calls him up to complain how tough parenting is.)

So, usually Record Store Day is a great thing for him - but not this year. So he worked around it!

Strong recommendation, although I don't know what's in store. I've got most of his previous weekly broadcasts and enjoyed the heck out of them. 

Here's his promo.

1986 US 1st just arrived today.  Big hole filled. Prolly my favorite Pretenders album. Only ever had it on CD.

It just arrived from the wife's hometown of Costa Mesa and the Pearl Jam album I just sent out arrived in Laguna Beach a couple of miles down PCH from where I used to live, all in the same day.

One of those synchronicity things, maybe.

Hmmm. Oh well, solid earcandy nonetheless.

1989 US 1st and one of the only two US pressings both 1st's of this album ever.  A radio station prize (WMMS in Cleveburg when it was still a great station in it's end days) that I opened and maybe or maybe never really listened to.  By now I was done buying Stones albums as something that was good to listen to from beginning to end.  Just didn't think of them that way anymore.  They were always on the radio.

This is actually a pretty nice album that keeps flowing from tasty hook to tasty hook.  Glad I finally got around to playing it.

WMMS was very nice to my record collection and concert goings.  I had speed dialing down before people even knew what it was.  I'm one of the reasons that 30 day waits between prizes happened.  I actually started only calling in for things that I really wanted in case something nice came up, I wouldn't be locked out.

and just remembered that my 30+ yo clock radio that I still use is a radio station prize from WNCX

Yep, me too.  These are their first 4 in order of their release.  I have all of them up to the double Untitled album.  Sweetheart of the Rodeo would be next but I haven't seen it recently and don't know where it is.  Very interesting hearing all those hit songs that were mostly listened to via a crappy AM radio in the car.  Even better than I remember them from the 4 CD box set that I also have.  These have not been played in at least 40 years I would guess.  I was a huge Byrds fan back in the day.  Also explains why I like Tom Petty's material so much.

I was in 9th grade in SoCal when Mr Tambourine Man was released and The Doors first and so many others.
