@boxer12,

Just put Terry Allen in my cart. Thanks for the recommendation.
Playlist was from last night(4/11) had an audiophile friend over for dinner, fine wine and most important...Music!!! Many of these albums have been recently played(all audiophile level) but breaking in a new Shunyata power cord on my power amp.

Wagner-Karajan Conducts Wagner(Angel Sonic Series 45rpm) Side 2 SQ 4.5
Tania Maria-Forbidden Colors Side 1 SQ 4.5
Ted Nugent-ST(AP 45rpm) Side 1 &2 SQ 4.6
Ernie Sings & Glen Picks Side 1 SQ 4.6
Womack & Womack-Love Wars Side 2 SQ 4.5
Sue Raney-Ridin’ High Side 1 SQ 4.5
Pink Floyd-DSOTM(Harvest Blue Triangle) Side 2 4.5
Heart-Dog & Butterfly Side 1(Dog) SQ 4.6
Hank Jones-Hanky Panky Side 2 SQ 4.4***
The Borodin Quartet(Shostakovich Seraphim SIC-6035} SQ 4.7

***Note SQ on Hanky Panky would have rated a 4.6 but had static throughout the recording. Anyone else have this issue with this recording?
FWIW- I’m near the 1 year mark of playing at least 1 side of my entire vinyl collection and trying to avoid repeats. Will have a current status update on 4/18.
Derek and the Dominoes, Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs;
Best of  Otis Redding (possible bootleg? sounds good, though). 
Krokus - One Vice At a Time
Best of Dizzy Gillespie, Pablo
Red Garland’s Piano, Prestige

Dinner now though, so not sure if I will get back to more listening later. 
Melody Gardot - Currency of Man. This one isn't all jacked up like the first one I got and had to send back.
@slaw I totally get it. I pulled mine out into a to be sold pile, but they are not for sale yet.
Magik Markers / 2020
The Chamber Music Society Of Lincoln Center - Various. The Classics Record Company 4LP box set 1975

Not sure how many of these I’ll listen to....starting with Beethoven - String Trio In G, Op. 9, No. 1 & Schumann - Fantasy Pieces For Clarinet & Piano, Op. 73
@lawmnsuu

Which format is it?

Neil Young 50th anniversary edition of into the GoldRush. Arrived yesterday.

I think you guys would like this
Szell conducts Brahms - Piano Concerto No. 2 In B-Flat Major. The Cleveland Orchestra w/Leon Fleisher, piano. Odyssey reissue 1973, originally 1963 mono (which I also have).

Asked Jim Hagerman about using a 16v LPS I have sitting around on the Trumpet (15v power supply). He said it should be fine, just run a little warmer is all. So, just hooked it up to try out. Otherwise it is either a doorstop, or a 16v LPS I would have to try and sell. May leave it in, maybe not....we’ll see....
Brian, Jim,
Thank You

@big_greg,

I have a problem.

My issue seems to be letting go of music in general. 

I'm sure you and others are aware. I guess starting the process will be helpful.

I have a pile of 200 lps in my to sell pile, just need to get "my mind right,"
The Bangles "Sweetheart of the Sun"

Teal transluscent vinyl
The Gov't Mule "Live @the Capitol Theatre" IS highly recommended. Just need Vol 1
Robert Craft conducts Schoenberg - The Music Of Arnold Schoenberg - Volume One. Erwartung, Concerto For Violin And Orchestra, Pierrot Lunaire, Die Glückliche Hand, & A Survivor From Warsaw. Opera Society Of Washington, Columbia Chamber Ensemble, & CBC Symphony Orchestra. Columbia Masterworks reissue 2LP set, I believe from the early 70’s per label. Originally 1962
BTW, the Todd Rundgren lp is not recommended.
Gov't Mule "Live @ The Capitol Theatre" Vol 3
Yeah...I think about it as a way to document for insurance purposes.
Van Halen II.  It's been a while since I listened to this.  I remember at the time it came out it was a little bit of a letdown after the debut album (how could they top that?), but it is one of those records that has stood the test of time for me.
Steve, it's a great way to re-visit your existing collection, weed some things out, and improve the quality of the collection.
@big_greg,

I tip my hat to you. I need to be doing the same.
@mammothguy54 
 
B.B. King  'Deuces Wild' A 2 LP collection of B.B. playing with a variety of top musicians. Really good album!
Fantastic Album 👍
Todd Rundgren "Live"  lp 2
@boxer12 

Good news indeed. Thoughts and prayers
also, you can load your collection in Discogs....at my advancing age, this keeps the repeat buys down....
I've been going through this exercise and have been putting together a bunch of records to sell. Unfortunately, I'm finding out that I've gotten a lot more picky and have been... you guessed it, buying another copy to replace a less than stellar one.

This is going to take a while.  I'm almost at the end of the letter B.


@skyscraper thanks for your comments on the early British Blues scene.  I’m also amazed at all the great Blues coming out of the UK in the ‘60’s.  John Mayall is indeed the Father (or Grandfather) of British Blues and I’m still awed by all the talent he has gathered over all the years......from Eric, Peter and Mick and he is still doing it with some of the best Blues musicians around.  Last time I saw him was out in San Juan Capistrano a few years ago, I think he was 82 or 83, Rocky Athas was on guitar and that show had as much energy as any I’ve ever seen.  I will be searching on some of the names and groups you mentioned and I’m sure I will come away even more intrigued by British Blues.....Thanks!
"Then Play On" again/from the box set
Bloomfield, Kooper, and Stills - Super Session 
I’ll get on it tomic60 and will report back. Might take a few days.

That’s good advice to keep from buying doubles. I recently purchased the Van Morrison and the Chieftans album again, ruefully not consulting my check list first. I normally download Allmusic discographies for each artist or group, and with a bit of modification use them for checklists. The links to individual record reviews stays active on downloaded Allmusic discographies, which is handy to use when checking out potential purchases.

I missed a trick on the Graham Bond Organisation though, and didn’t have a discography on them. And I’ve other records of early British blues and R&B groups that will now be getting their discographies downloaded. Groups like Alexis Koerner, Lord Sutch, Long John Baldry, Spencer Davis and the like, where a bunch of ’60’s British rockers got their start. At least the John Mayall list is in order, and recently completed I might add.

Mike
@skyscraper.  ...please play them all and make a recommendation IF possible. what a great story

also, you can load your collection in Discogs....at my advancing age, this keeps the repeat buys down....
Tim Godspeed for full healing :-)
