Christmas comes early

Post by Animal » Sat Sep 15, 2012 9:21 am

The Post Man left me a surprise in the mailbox yesterday.

I was supposed to wait to open this for Christmas, but.... uh, I needed to make sure it was alright. Yeah. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Wow, that's pretty scary. :) There must be some kind of story behind this is if you are asking for this for Christmas. It looks like a large beach towel or blanket?

Scroll down to the bottom:

I was under the impression that one of the most iconic album covers in the history of rock and roll would be instantly recognized. The error is mine.

Now that you mention it, I do recall seeing this album cover. I don't own the album however. I think I was thrown off as the picture was clearly not a CD, but rather a sheet/blanket. My bad, I should have known! :) Your going to have to give a review of the King Crimson album!

X-mas has not come early but now is very close. I can't wait to see what kind of audio/video goodies are underneath the Christmas tree....

I will try to post some pictures after the "unwrapping ceremonies."

When I think of Christmas, this is what goes through my mind:

I promised to show some pictures of Christmas goodies left under the tree.

Here are some Laserdiscs that my family bought me (I collect/watch laserdiscs as a hobby). I was pretty darn excited!

Well though technically it came early, I just opened it...sadly I still dont have my turntable setup(why I wasnt in a big hurry to open my lone gift this year...gotta love the economy, but oh well, something better than nothing. Thank You wifey...she just loves it when I call her that....lol).

Not sure if anyone has this particular Charlie Byrd recording, but thought I would share. Its one of my "standards" that I used to "tune" systems...yes I have listened to it way too many times to count....:) This is my second copy, the first was practically worn out when I got it....this "new" copy looks fairly pristine. Will rip it to HD(lossless) once the Thorens is setup(needs a mild overhaul), and only bring out the vinyl to the table on "special occasions". Always thought it was cool it played at 45rpm, to my humble ears it is rather well performed and recorded as well. Not the best, but certainly better than most. Anyone have thoughts on the play speed of 45 instead of 33?

Anyway, Belated Happy Holidays....lol

It seems like King Crimson is not on any of the music streaming services. One of the last holdouts.... kind of a shame. Great music.
