I got a care package from Isolation Records so I could give this ruthless hardcore assault a spin:
Imprisoned 'Slave To Nothing'
Opaque gold with black splatter colored 7inch vinyl in folded sleeve including download code, limited to 300 copies.
Weekend and time for yet another musical theme. It’s Sunday and I feel kinda blue so I decided to go with albums with blue covers. Some of my all time favourites are on display today. Deep Purple - In Rock (must say it sounds even better after Roger Glover signed it😁), Van Halen II and Gram Parson... Grievous Angel, one of the best albums I have ever heard 💙
The King’s last album is also one of his very best so decided to highlight that one. EP - gone but never forgotten 💙💙 Do you have a favourite Let me know. Next theme #blue #bluecover #sundaysounds
Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon (SACD)
This album needs no introduction, listening to it on SACD with planar magnetic headphones is something I highly recommend. HiFiMAN 400i, paired with a Schiit Lyr 2, is a perfect match for that crystal clear sound with a touch of warmth from the Amperex Bugle Boy EC88 tubes.
Ringo Starr “Bad Boy”, released in 1978. Last weekend I saw Ringo and his All Starrs in Berlin. So why not giving one of his records a spin “Bad Boy” was released at a time when Ringo’s songs began to fail in the charts. The glory days of “Ringo” (1973) and “Goodnight Vienna” (1974) were gone and the rockin’ days too. I mean there are a few “nice” tunes on “Bad Boy” but the album as a whole is a bit schmaltzy and lame. The soft arrangements with all those female backing vocals don’t convince me. Vini Poncia, his producer and songwriting partner at that time was responsible for a sound I always call “too American”. It’s hard to describe. Hope you know what I mean. 😉 It would have been interesting to know how his music would have sounded if he had recorded with his British rock buddies in the late 70s. Anyway, I still love Ringo. ☮️ & ❤️Favourites: “Who Needs A Heart“, „Hard Times“. This is an gold vinyl reissue from 2016 in a gatefold (!) cover. 〰 🎼🎸🎤🎶🎹 #vinyl #vinylgram #vinylcollection #vinylgen_feature #vinyligclub #vinyloftheday #vinylcommunity #vinylcollectionpost #vinyladdict #vinyllovers #33rpm #nowplaying #nowspinning #record #recordcollector #recordplayer #recordcollection #goodmusic #ringostarr #thebeatles #ringo #beatles
Emerson, Lake & Palmer - "Pictures at an Exhibition" Cotillion, 1972.
I'm so happy this album exists. I love the original piano composition by Modest Mussorgsky. I love Tomita's electronic version. I used to have a CD with a version performed by 4 hands on one piano (is that a porn movie too), which was great! I even had the joy of playing an orchestral arrangement of it in high school. It's such a weird composition, and every orchestration gives it a slightly different mood (hence the multiple versions in my collection). This one is a radical prog-rock rendition, arranged perfectly for keys, bass and drums. Recorded live on my birthday (March 26) nine years before I was born. It is pretty great to hear the three of them pull this off so well. Quite frankly, it rips. If you've never heard this piece I highly recommend checking it out, and I would even suggest listening to a couple versions to hear some of the cool variations.
