SANDY DENNY Who Knows Where The Time Goes? Beautiful 1985 UK 43-track FOUR LP box set featuring an unrivalled collection of her greatest songs, alongside unreleased recordings, out-takes & demos spanning 1967 to 1977, complete with a nice 20-page illustrated black & white booklet in a 12" picture box. Apart from a small light sticker mark on the front, the packaging shows very little of its age with only light wear, the labels all have a couple of light spindle marks but remain very clean with minimal sign of play.

Buffalo Springfield – Buffalo Springfield Again (1969)
Rhino Records  ‎– R1 33226M

Rhino Records reissues frustrate me.  Some are well-pressed while others are not. There is no standard on which I can depend upon, as a consumer.  Quality is inconsistent. Some album jackets are made cheaply while others are of a much higher grade. Some releases are properly housed in  poly-lined inner sleeves while others are sleeved in those cheap paper inners that almost immediately scuff up the surface of your new record. it’s almost like different companies are putting them out.  

This one though…. 180 gram vinyl in a proper anti-static sleeve, sturdy album jacket. All in glorious mono.  If you’re looking to replace your old beat up copy or simply wanna fill up your Neil stacks (I get it), buy with confidence.  I’ve spun it a buncha times, the vinyl experience is there.  It’s got all the elements that make it a great slab to pull from the shelves.

Anthrax and me are gonna play all 3 Nick Drake lps before shelving them.  See you next month or so, you know I’ll be back to see hear your magic soon.

Digging this.  Singer-sowngwriter, nicely done.  I’ve heard mention of Conor Oberst before, but this is the first time I hear any music.  Anything else I should keep an eye/ear out for?

KEVIN AYERS Joy Of A Toy. Fantastic 1969 UK 10-track LP on the Harvest label with ‘Gramophone Co’ perimeter label text & no EMI logo, front laminated gatefold picture sleeve with very small annotated lyric correction inside. The sleeve is still arich & glorious, strong yellow with only faint wear to the laminate around the edges. The labels reveal minimal spindle indicating very little play. The vinyl is super clean & under a bright light, shows just a couple hairline marks not affecting play. A really nice, excellent condition, copy of this Ayers classic.

Bill Callahan ‎– Live At Third Man Records
Third Man Records ‎– TMR-531
Released: 09 Nov 2018

This is so amazing.  Acid folk along the vein Ben Chasny/Six Organs Of Admittance.  This is a new discovery for me; I’m immediately captivated by the uniqueness of his delivery, enough to want to go digging into some back catalog on Drag City Records.  

More often than not, I am unfamiliar with the artists on the “Live At Third Man Records” series. I think that’s exactly what I like about it. I feel these direct-to-acetate recordings somehow share a kinship with The Peel Sessions. They capture a moment in time, performed by artists that mostly fly under the radar.  The records are then made avaible cheaply, for people to take home and enjoy.  Much like John Peel captured live moments in his studio, Third Man Records provides a stage which facilitates live recordings. Each record feels like a unique artifact, never to be repeated.

Wow.  Never heard of this before the VMP box arrived. Droney, blues-inflected acid country folk?  Something to that effect.  Sounds great too.  Fans of Ben Chasny’s folkier projects (Six Organs Of Admittance) will dig this.

Released: 1977

It started with a panic attack, daily dose.  “Like A Hurricane” came to mind, which meant a choice needed to be made. Listening in album format provides another perspective.  Not “Decade” nor the live records, but within the context and chronology of which it was originally conceived.  One’s perspective of art changes over time, thru the time-worn lens of their personal history with it.
Neil is forever.  
I am dedicated.
