Yeah, I haven't played Ten in a little bit over 3 years.  I'm relearning what the music sounds like now on the new speakers.  Everything is different.  Side 1 of Ten works but Side 2 is going to take some more listening to.  Vs. is being re released on 45 rpm vinyl in a couple of weeks so Ten was a bit of a warm up for that.

I'm digging into stuff I haven't played in ages just to see what it sounds like again and see what still works and even what makes me go Wow ! after all these years. What is finished and what needs more attention.  Albums and album sides are a whole different listening experience than doing a playlist of songs.  Just sitting, TV off, listening and looking over at the wife now and then and seeing when her head is bopping and she's singing along, making notes for the future.  We're doing 2 to 3 of these 4 hour plus sessions every week now.  Lot's of experimenting seeing what plays nicely with others.  Dire Straits and Supertramp which is playing now, did not do so well after what came before.  I'm hoping I Robot is a nice finish.  I associate I Robot with the old Laserium days.  A Laser light show set to music while you sat back in planetarium recliner chairs looking up at the lights.

Today

Genesis - Genesis

Genesis - A Trick of the Tail

Dire Straits - Money For Nothing

Fleetwood Mac - Rumours

Fleetwood Mac - Fleetwood Mac

Supertramp - Breakfast In America

Alan Parsons Project - I Robot

i went to a bunch of laser light shows at the planetarium in high school. they did dark side of the moon, they did zeppelin - but not any certain album, sort of a mix up to in through the out door. it was fantastic. i think there was another one, but those two i went back to see over and over again. it was really something. like being high with no drugs or alcohol. i really dug it.

you know how i feel about genesis    thanks for the reminder, i'm going to revisit those two, and maybe even in one whole sitting i'll do a lamb lies down on broadway. we'll see.
i wasn't a big fan of supertramp growing up, but i have become one in the last 2 years. i'm not sure what made this happen. that album in particular. i'm going to listen to it all the way through sometime soon on your prompting.

i really like your idea of your 2 - 3 4 hr+ sessions a week. i may take your lead on this too! sounds right up my alley.

i think i'm going to start with The Royal Scam and/or Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. we'll see.

i'm going to visit N4KU and aligator this weekend. i bet i could interest them in a session idea like this.

i just revisited Ten a couple of weeks ago for the first time in 10+ years. i associate it with fall and a certain time in my "youth." forgot how 'different' it sounded to me when i got ahold of it the week it came out - loved it. still think it's great.

The first five Zep albums back to back. Just started Houses of the Holy.

Yeah, it's still nice to get the Led out after all these years.  It stands up well.

Thinking about Physical Graffiti. That's more up to the wife if she wants to do more.

I ♥ my wife.

Post op ... PG best served separately in small doses.  The first five are Led Zep without sounding like LZ yet.  PG they are LZ and sound like LZ.

BTW, I love listening to the wind.  It is a good preference to have if you live in a semi-arid place between mountains.
