Yes, Paula Abdul is no vinyl nerd’s idea of cool, but this 1991 flop single is a wonderful case of Audio WTF, constructed out of standard club-thumping beats of the era, faux opera, a 1940s swing big band, and a piano part playing utterly backwards jazz chords for the hook. It’s audaciously ambitious, even though it only works sometimes (her exhortations are pretty insipid even for dance music, where the words are usually the least important aspect). Nonetheless, it’s pretty fun and even more impressive if only for the fact that it was on a mainstream dance album. If some UK act had brought it out back then instead of Paula Abdul, it would have been a hit on US alternative radio. On the other hand, this is the UK 12” remix for it and I don’t think it was a hit over there either so I’m probably wrong.

An original pressing of Billy Joel’s first album from before he was signed to Columbia. The label he was on was so bad that the album was lmastered at the incorrect speed [approximately 8% faster]. When Columbia acquired and re-released it years later, the mastering was fixed.

Mothers of Invention – Weasels Ripped My Flesh.

Picked this up at the weekend. It’s a German copy with the different cover. Don’t know who chose to go with this artwork instead of the Neon Park artwork that most other countries use.

Very strange!

Tears for Fears’ Songs From The Big Chair family portrait, clockwise from top left: A Canadian promo LP for playing in record stores, combining tracks from The Hurting and SFTBC; a MFSL audiophile copy of SFTBC; the rare and expensive (sigh) 2014 stereo mix by Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree (less verb, drums all up front—if you ever wanted “Shout” to punch you in the face, this is your album); and an OG UK pressing from back in the day.

New Voice Records ‎– 2000
Released:

It’s amazing, how loud and powerful a great mono record can sound!  This album is over 50 years old and scratched up but it STILL beats the pants out of most new records.  The 50s and 60s were vinyl’s golden years, nothing beats the pressings from that period. 
Also, Mitch Ryder is an all-time badass.  I need more.

An unlikely find at NAMM—Eventide was handing out white vinyl 45s (not flexidiscs which I guess would have been TOO old school) with samples of music put through its 500 Series DDL on different settings. Pretty cool.
