Played this one earlier.  Might just be my favorite Roxy album.  It just pushes all the right buttons the right way.

1980 US 1st


Thanks for reminding me about that one!

So I picked up a copy of LZ II yesterday at walmart for $15.  Only because of the price.  On the cover is a hype sticker that mentions the inclusion of a replica backstage pass.

This is it.


I was at that show.  Senior year of HS.  LZ III tour.  Page sat in a chair stage left for the first half of the show.

Just taking I'm On Fire and TV off of this.  The rest is extremely forgettable.
My all time favorite is off of 1977's "Twilley Don't Mind"... Trying To Find My Baby.
A nice Power Poppy piece I first heard on KROQ-FM L.A.  back in... '77.
That station really influenced my musical taste in the 70's.  And into the 80's.

16 Sep 2022  Holy cow, Batman {#Eek}

Underture.  For sure one of my favorite pieces of music ever created. {#Arrowd}

The latest release of Tommy was nice to listen to without any ticks and pops but was sorely lacking on the bottom end.  You spent the whole time imaging what the bass and drums really sounded like.  You simply know better.  I've got 3 different 1st of Tommy including mine from HS.  When I find some time I might build a good set from those.  Regarding the riff from Underture, the 2016 release of Live At Leeds is the entire concert including chatter.  It has the part where they go into Sparks / Amazing Journey and Underture and a whole bunch of other stuff for almost 20 minutes.  It is what you might have heard on the radio overnight in the wee hours back in the day that never got released to us peons.  I got to see the American leg of this tour in Philly at the old Spectrum. What was also interesting about this concert is that they had the stage somewhat left of center going into the corner instead of the center like nearly every other concert arena show I've attended.  It did affect the sound, too.  For anyone that is a real Who fan and loves jams, this version of LAL is incredible.  Vinyl and CD.

Listened to it last night - BIG differences. Especially in the bass prominence (e.g. here at 6:10), which is not a bad thing.
Why the different cover? IIRC it's the Battersea tower rebuilding. Nice reference!

Oh my.  I've been watching for these UHQR releases and haven't looked for awhile.  And the prices went up, too.  Damn. I've got a 1st press of this album I'll have to drag out and spin.  I just read up on the problems with this album and how it was almost never released.  And then the 24 track masters were lost in the fire.  Have to wonder about the source for this UHQR release.  Curious for your thoughts on this after you give it a spin. Cheers !

Becker/Fagen “never” wanted to listen to it after the debacle with using dbx on it - then not being able to decode it properly. I was skeptical as well, but tend to trust the company, so I’ve sold a kidney and we’ll see what happens.
 
Acoustic Sounds is one of my first stops when looking for something and their own pressings are simply the best on average.  Better than MOFI, imho.  Their customer service is top flight.

I'll get my copy out like I mentioned and send you the rip for you to compare.  I am very curious to know what differences there are.

Worked a bunch extra, so splurged on a sentimental favorite. One of my favorite 8-tracks until my '68 Rambler was broken into. Took that, Topographic Oceans, Deodato's first album, and Zappa's Just Another Band from LA. Ah, high school...



oooh - and the mail person just dropped off this... Nicely made packaging with the box being embossed with King Crimson 1972-1974 on the side. Everything remixed by Steven Wilson & Fripp, and there's an extra disk with Larks' Tongues stuff. USA has been expanded from one disc to two. And there's a nice little booklet with pretty pictures.
