What was the last vinyl you bought?

Picked this up yesterday... had been hesitating as it is very pricy (8 lps), but a limited run of 2500 and I hadn't come across one in awhile so figured it was now or never. VERY glad I did. Mastered from the Owsley Stanley's original analogue reels and it is an outstanding recording. Puts you in the room. One of the best live recordings I've heard of the Grateful Dead and that is saying something.

Steve I got them from my local S/H dealer.He had just bought a big collection,I got Coda and in ITTOD on Friday for £10 each then popped in Saturday to see what else was in there and pick up the other 3 for £50.Only the first disc of PG has got a few removal marks on the vinyl other wise none of them look like they've ever been played.

My reissued limited coloured vinyl of this masterpiece from 2002 arrived yesterday:

 

 

Max Richter - Memoryhouse

 

A terrific pressing of a wonderful, wonderful record. If you like anything - anything at all - by Wim Merten, Michael Nyman or Zbigniew Preisner, then you'll love this.

 

Maybe this is why:

"Vinyl is for me the basic and fundamental medium for hearing recorded music. It is what I first loved and it is ultimately the medium I imagine when I'm working on something. My music is recorded on analogue tape, and it is mixed analogue and mastered analogue. CDs were always horrible and I don't mourn their disppearance one bit, inspite of their convenience, while stuff like mp3 and streaming audio is just really degrading, literally and emotionally. I don't see how a 320K file can be described, in all seriousness as "high resolution" when it is throwing away 3/4 of the data - you know, I put that data in there for a reason..."

Max Richter

 

 

Just arrived and is on the LP12 now. As I suspected, it's just a vinyl reissue of the standard bootleg tape that's been doing the rounds for years. Great performance, of course, and a fascinating document of the band in a very early stage of its development.

 

Just don't expect good sound quality...

This is why I love this forum; seeing what others are listening to and then listening for myself. This music is stunning! A new artist to embrace. But where to start?

Thanks Simon! Memoryhouse is a fantastic record, and while it is available on vinyl worth snapping up - the packaging is fantastic for starters (and the recording purely analogue as above so worth it).

 

Otherwise, the piece that Richter has become (in)famous for is "Vivaldi:Recomposed"

Even those for whom the very idea of recomposing anyone, let alone Vivaldi, is a complete anathema, have been bowled over by it and usually won around. If you like the Four Seasons, but feel you have over-heard it, then give this a whirl. He did, after all, get Daniel Hope to play on the recording - an achievement and testament in equal measure.

 

Max Richter is playing at the Royal Albert Hall in October - his concerts tend to sell out very quickly, but I'm sure it will be a great evening.

 

Enjoy!

This is By far the best album I brought last year, also got my vinyl version about a month ago

I thought that might be the case Kevin. Mine should have arrived today but didn't show. I'm not expecting too much and it didn't cost a fortune.

OK Don't laugh but I was a massive Frankie Goes To Hollywood fan back in the mid 80's collecting all their vinyl from around the world, ended up with a great collection which I still have, anyway I was reading a hifi mag last night and noticed that they have released a new CD box set which I ordered instantly but also noticed that a 12" version of Relax was released last month to commemorate its 30 year anniversary so ordered that also, apparently it has got a rare mix of Relax on it that was only re-discovered a couple of years ago in the ZTT vaults after it was labelled wrong.

This is the 2nd 12" I've bought in the last months, got Embraces new single on 12", lets hope we get a resurgence in 12's like we had in the 80's, loved some of the extended mixes 

 

Hi, those of you who have the vinyl version of Max Richter - Memoryhouse can you tell me what the quality of the vinyl is like.  I have read a number of reviews that claim their copies were more "crackle and pop" than music.  I would much rather get this on vinyl than CD but not of the pressing is too poor.

 

thanks

Paul

SQ isn't briliant. The instrumental sections are reasonably good but Plant's vocals sound very distant. Never mind it didn't cost much.

Or even Steven Wilson Debs.  I got the heads up from Stu and ordered it as well. It gets good reviews and could well be the bargain of the year as you say.
