The Donald Fagan one from last year (#3 in the series) is without a doubt, the cleanest, most dynamic, blackest background, total tick and pop-free LP I own. It is now the reference record I use for visitors that have never heard a good, modern day LP player.


...and FWIW, the new(ish) Rush 200g Metal Masters are a close second.

I was lucky enough to see four of the Broadway shows, 17th early and late, one where the girl yells out “We love you Jerry!” and he reponds, the 25th early but couldn’t get in to the late and of course Weir comes out. And the late Halloween show.

The Lunt was so sweet but they were busting tapers big time. One guy spliced into the bathroom speakers so there are good boards for the first couple. Even in the balcony it felt like you could reach over and scratch Jerry’s head...Bill Graham running around outside...good times.

I have the original release, I’ll have to pull it out and give it a listen. I remember it sounding very good though I usually go to bootlegs for Jerry.

Garcia definitely approves of your setup for obvious reasons. Thanks for the post!

That spector Christmas album is one of my favorites. Darlene Love’s “Christmas (baby please come home)” is always on any Xmas playlist I make.




I’ve read all the amazing reviews concerning this Analogue Productions reissue, and it does not disappoint. Just incredible!

The MIL has been here for the past few days... she has the envie for something to listen to music in her house other than a portable speaker. She seems to enjoy when I turn on the system while she is here and she loves music. She has Spotify and pandora....

This would be on a small budget, although I could probably convince her to get something decent. I suggested maybe some book shelfs and an integrated. Towers aren’t an option, she wants it to have a small footprint. What y’all think?

Figured I could find some ELACs pretty reasonable and then just shop around for a cheaper integrated. Not sure about the cheaper Focals or any other brands that are decent at around that price range though. How are those small NAD hybrids? I spend most of my browsing in dream land, so my knowledge on the smaller stuff is limited.

You could use the NAD piece and some ELAC for her.

Do you get all the mail catalogs from MusicDirect, Acoustic Sounds, and AudioAdvisor? They just sent out a bunch of clearance catalogs and demo deals. You may find a good price on something in those pages.

I get all, but acoustic sounds. I’ll look into them too.

Take a look at Dynaudio Xeo 2. You can stream wirelessly through the speakers and remove the preamp/amp. May be over your budget, just thought I'd throw that out there.

Tom Johnston—“Everything You’v Heard Is True”...Warner Bros. Records, LP, 1979.


This is a solo album Tom did after he left the Doobie Brothers (Tom was a guitarist and lead vocalist for their early and breakout years for you young ‘uns), and it is pretty darn good. It is upbeat, and has a heavy Doobie Brothers sound, but from when they were good (before Michael McDonald stained their music with his goofy vocals and keys).


...as you may have noticed, I’m not a big McDonald fan.
