Only a single listen so far but I liked that Lana del Rey has moved away from the mouth-full-of-marbles sound that has been fashionable recently (and I do like her previous albums). She has a lovely voice.

kurster:  I see you bought an LP of Yes remixes by Steven Wilson.  

Was thinking of buying one of the early Yes albums that has some serious nostalgic appeal and was wondering if I should get the Steven Wilson remix.   A while back I downloaded a Steven Wilson remix of the Yes album Relayer as FLAC files and frankly did not notice too much difference.

Truth be known I tend to play Relayer and other Yes material when I am in the automobile by myself.   110 km/h.  Frost-stressed highways.  The views are breathtaking and the ambience is top notch but the sound quality ain't the best.  

 
missed this.  I got the box set of Steven Wilson Yes remixes.  The work he did on these albums is outstanding.  So good that I don't really care what changes he made to the music.  Been listening to Yes since their first album came out.  Never heavily listened to Relayer back in the day.  Mostly from airplay and at people's houses.  The earlier albums got worn out from being played all the time.  90125 was also played heavily back in the day, too. I'll get the set out again and put it into the pile.  I'll shoot you a pm when I get there.  There are a couple more interested as well.

That much material, eh?   -hehe-   Do the CDs include some of his live material where he essentially does stand up comedy?   

 

As far as I can tell, they are all studio albums. The only live material is probably the "Bonsoir, mon nom est Michel Rivard...." double album and later quadruple album.

This is the original cover that Jimi wanted.  It's from the 50th box set which is what I got.  I also have a 1973 British copy with the naked lady's.  The album was also sold as two separate albums and you buy them individually.   The early single copies are very rare.

This 50th was remastered by Bernie Grundman who seems to be doing the best job on critical vinyl lately.  The 50th beats my 73 British copy and the early CD version for that matter, hands down.  Voodoo Chile all by itself on this is worth the price of admission on this box set.  It is done sofa king good.  It takes your breath away, especially when you consider that it was a live studio jam that fortunately they had tape running to capture it.  Hendrix and Winwood going back and forth. Guitar vs Hammond organ.  Call and Response.  Doesn't get any better.   I might get around to putting it up when I get caught up on things.  The demos are interesting but the concert really sucks.  It's interesting as a historical event and also hearing how the sound of a concert like that in those days would break down as things went on.  But you play on and finish the set.

The Hendrix Estate has been very active protecting his work.  That may be why you can't find it on youtube.

Amazon Music Unlimited ?  I have no idea, never listened to it.  Not interested to tell you the truth.  Might very well be 128k, or some crappy VBR thing.  Amazon is funny with music.  With the Moody Blues 50th of DOFP, I first tried from Amazon.de and the pressing sucked.  Tried twice from Amazon here in the states.  Both had digital downloads to accompany the albums.  Both versions were pressed in the same plant in Czech Republic, but with the Amazon.de purchase, I got a download of the album in a 16 bit / 41 khz wave file, while the US was only a 192 CBR mp3 file.  The 16 bit wav file is really nice and makes up for the aggravation kinda.  I don't think that Amazon here in the states cares very much about the provenance of the source music.  As usual, the Europeans and the Japanese both seem to care more about the overall quality of the music they put out while we get the dreck in the states.  Same as it always was since the 70's.

What was supposed to be so special about the 50th of DOFP was that it was the first time the original stereo mix from the original master has been available since the mid 70's.  The original master tape got damaged and put aside.  Everything from the mid 70's on was from a safety copy with a bit of a different mix that is noticeably different and many think to be lacking.  There are not very many 1st pressings of the album left in good shape.  Mine is good enough where if I take the time, I can mine out the music from underneath all the scratches.  But that is 50 plus man hours drawing with the mouse using a pencil tool on the wav file. 

Right now, I'm working on a 1st pressing of Tommy and side 2 for the past week and a half of and on.  I already have 1753 markers where I have edited clicks and have done at least twice as many without marking them.  I'm about 90% done now.  Side 3 is going to be just as bad.  Sides 1 and 4 are done.  I'll pull out the CD and play it against the rip when I get side 2 knocked out to see if the difference makes it worth finishing.  Some of the sections on this side 2 have taken over an hour just to clean up 10 seconds of music.  It does keep me busy though ...

I thought the British cover was the bare breasts one

 

Yeah, you're right. Apparently the photo with the kids was shot by Linda Eastman McCartney, Paul's wife (I gather not yet married to him at the time). That's the photo that Hendrix wanted but the record company didn't listen: 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_Ladyland#Cover

Hendrix had written to Reprise describing what he wanted for the cover art, but was mostly ignored. He expressly asked for a color photo by Linda Eastmanof the group sitting with children on a sculpture from Alice in Wonderland in Central Park, and drew a picture of it for reference. The company instead used a blurred red and yellow photo of his head while performing at Saville Theatre, taken by Karl Ferris.

Track Records used its art department, which produced a cover image by photographer David Montgomery, who also shot the inside cover portrait of Hendrix, depicting nineteen nude women lounging in front of a black background. Hendrix expressed initial displeasure and surprise with this "naked lady" cover (but later told Rolling Stone Magazine that he "dug it anyway"), much as he was displeased with the Axis: Bold as Love cover which he found disrespectful. The cover was banned by several record dealers as "pornographic", while others sold it with the gatefold cover turned inside out, or in a brown wrapper.

In France and the Benelux countries, Hendrix's albums were released on Barclay Records.

I forgot the 50th of Beggars Banquet which is really sweet.

Yeah, still married.  I have sold a few LP's to offset the costs, but no where near enough.  Its getting really hard with a bunch of 50th anniversary pressings coming out now.  I'm waiting for Abbey Road.  The 50th of Days Of Future Passed is one of the worst pressings of anything I can remember buying.  I had so much hope for it.  Tried three times to get a good copy.  Massive fail.  I've got a 1st with the original mix of that that would take about 50 to 60 hours of work to repair but it just might be worth it given the fail of the 50th.  Working on cleaning up the copy of Tommy I just got now.

Being a big fan of Beau Dommage's ST album, I was all ears a while back when you talked about Rivard. So I bit the bullet this week-end. Can't wait to hear it.
