That's a little surprising. Find your way back was one of the JS songs I kind of enjoyed. I can't remember the rest of the record but I don't remember it negatively. Ghastly cover art, but hey: 80s.

 
They had pretty much lost most of their respect by then with the Starship part and all of that.  Sell outs, etc.  This was their answer back album to that which no one ever really listened to.  It got lot's of airplay here.  Stairway To Cleveland had a lot to do with that.  Me, I was always into Airplane from day one.  Much more so than the Dead.

I like love the whole album.  Lot's of serious hooky guitar noodling and Gracie floating around in the background.  A driving in a serious snow storm album for me.

1980 US 1st.  Some fluffy guilty pleasure stuff before I get back to the more serious.

one good thing about endless airplay is that your album is barely played.

An Akron Public Library discard I bought 30 years ago and never played it until now.  I was afraid but it cleaned up real nice.

A 1983 US release.  The songs

I don't think I've ever heard this stuff on something good before until now.  Damn.  sofa king good.

I was 16 at the beginning of my senior year in hs when this came out.

Damn, this is nice !  Side 1 so far. Love, love the new mix and the clarity.  It should have sounded like this on day one, imho ...

Side 2 is soaking ... {#Jump}

Side 2 is just as nice as Side 1.  Funny, this might be the first use of a (sorta) hidden track on an album.

This is the best this album has ever sounded.

2015 EU 2 X 12" @ 45 RPM 20th anniversary pressing

Very interesting experience listening to something very familiar on vinyl for the very first time.  It has taken a lot of different Vertical Tracking Adjustments to get it to sound close to like it should.  But I only know what the CD sounds like.  Still not there after 4 different height changes up .25 mm at a time.  Gonna have to go back and play the CD for a refresher.
 
The thought of hearing vinyl after knowing the digital or CD version for so long hadn't occurred to me before.  Their records generally sounded good; Butch Vig is a wizard in the studio.

 
I'm a fan for sure.  A musician / engineer.  I might put him up there with the likes of Steven Wilson and Todd, who was one of the first of this skill set.  Al Kooper also comes to mind and may have even mentored Todd at some level. Saw Todd last night btw.

This is one of my desert island albums.  It is also a musical reset button for when I get out of sync with life.  I became very used to hearing it a certain way off the CD.  Never knew anything different.  Usually it is the other way around.  This was originally recorded on analogue tape and released on vinyl initially but only one pressing in several countries.  The rest since has been on CD and cassette.  1995 was at the end of vinyl the first time around.  From the early 90's most of the remaining vinyl issues of new albums were being made in Europe.  The USA was the first to let go.  And fwiw, it is these 90's copies of albums that are currently worth the most on average price wise and some of the rarest.

Vinyl is now a pretty complicated thing to play anymore with all the different materials, thicknesses and different cutting lathes and then the playback hardware.  Regardless of all of that, once you get your cart aligned properly (offset angle, overhang / zenith, azimuth) to get it tangentially perpendicular to the arc and perpendicular to the surface , you still have to be able to change the vertical tracking angle (VTA) or rake angle of the stylus cantilever for each individual piece of vinyl.  Too low, too bassy and sibilance can happen.  So you raise the height / angle to tune in the sound.  If you have sibilance, you raise it until it is gone.  That may be too high though and you lose the bass, so you have to go back and forth until you find the right spot. It requires that you make the final choice by ear and may have to make compromises.  More subjectivity to one of the most subjective things to begin with.  There are some albums where I change the VTA by .25 mm or more up or down on the other side just to get it to sound right to my ears.  I have had to do this with this album already, raising the height for Side D about .3 mm over the height for Side C on the second take which I'm playing as I write this.  I'll take it off the TT and wash it again and start over, recheck the settings playing it at least three more times.  Now up .5 mm on take 3.  And yes, vinyl does break in as well.

This is half the reason I rip the vinyl in the first place.  It's just to capture the optimal playback with the optimal settings.  I am not a vinyl romanticist per say.  I love the sound, not all the hassle that goes with it.  Iffen I had to go and reset everything every time I wanted to play something, I probably would not.  I would have to have notes inside of with the album for every time I played it.

This particular album also being at 45 rpm speed might add even more possibilities to this adjustment.  I'm working on finding out about that.  So I picked my starting height and was really shocked to hear the vocals really muffled and things way too bassy than I remembered.  I thought that I picked a good height based on the thickness.  I've since figured it out and played it vs the rip of an early CD of this album.  The vinyl sounds as it should, and actually better than my CD copy.  Turns out that the CD clips all over the place, it was done way too loud.  But who knew back then or cared (as much) ?  That and CD's can clip and still play and sound decent.  Vinyl cannot clip and will not play properly if it does.  The stylus will jump out of the groove.
