@Jaybrown, haven't listened to that in a long, long time. Classic album for sure.

This is a perfect place to put this album since it doesn't fit into any box...


Recently...

The Men - Open Your Heart LP (Sacred Bones Recordings) 2012



^Not a big fan of their band's name but honestly I could care less what that is when I'm digging the vibes.

Here's the first song on the album...





The overall sound and style morphs from track to track, after this track comes a straight up punk tune, then some post punk and shoegaze and even some chill out folky stuff on the b-side.

I really like this label Sacred Bones. I need to delve deeper.

^That track was pretty good. Sounds like noisy psych meets power pop to me. I've seen Sacred Bones stuff in stores but never bought any of it.

Miles Davis - Workin' and Steamin' 2xLP



Despite the cover, this is not 70s era Miles' funk/fusion but a reissue of two 50s albums cut for Prestige. Both great if you like this era of jazz. Prestige had many 2fers like this during the 70s and you've probably seen them while out digging. I have a few in my collection (Art Farmer, Stan Getz, Eric Dolphy, etc.) and the sound quality on all of them is great, but watch out for the thin vinyl they are pressed on. You want to carefully inspect these for warping before you go to the cash register. Given the thin nature of the vinyl the only way to reliably do that is cue them up on the store's listening station, assuming they have one.
