I realize that and I knew that when I played it, though I can still hear more distinction in the harmonies of the vocals. Everything else of course sounds the same - there are no new details to pick up on. The other version I've been listening to was the mastered for iTunes version, so that is what is most likely making the difference. Just reporting my experience. I was disappointed when I originally heard about the lame press back when they first released the album.

Thank you, though. I do think it is important that people have this information and should have included it in my original post, but left it out because I thought it may be common knowledge for anyone reading the thread.

I believe so, but there were other issues with BW. Many were pressed off center, which can add distortion to the sound, especially noticeable during the quieter songs. I haven't played it yet because it's signed and hanging on my wall. I'll have to pick up a new copy eventually... hopefully I get a good one.

So far, I've listened to Paul Simon's Graceland, OK Computer, and AFTW. Graceland was beautiful and an excellent experience. OK Computer blew me away! AFTW, like I said offered no new details or dimensions, other than I heard Dave's harmonies more clearly on a few songs, though that's not really specific to the vinyl.

That I don't know.

Before These Crowded Streets is different, though.

Thought BW came from separate 24-bit digital masters

I'm looking to start collecting soon. Well... I guess I've already started collecting, just don't have any equipment yet, expecting something around Christmas.

I'm not familiar with all the equipment specs, I'm just looking for convenience mostly. I have been educating myself on how to buy vinyl, looking for the 180g or anything prior to 74-ish, as a lot of stuff after that was thinner recycled stuff due to the oil crisis of the time.

I've bought a handful of LPs so far. And I'm building a list of 'must-haves'. With one of the largest record stores I've heard of here locally ([Only registered users can see links.] ), I figured I'd be able to find a lot of the older stuff that I love pretty available. And of course there's online auction stuff...

Anyway. Here's what I've grabbed so far:

Genesis - Trick of the Tail
Grateful Dead - American Beauty
Grateful Dead - What A Long Strange Trip Its Been (the very best of...)
Neil Young - Harvest
Peter Frampton - Frampton Comes Alive



Some of my 'must-haves' that I look for every trip into a record store, what I refer to as my personal starter kit:

Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin 4
Rolling Stones - Exile On Main Street
Paul Simon - Graceland (I'll probably end up buying a new 25 yr anniversary re-issue of this)
Steely Dan - Aja
Buffalo Springfield - Retrospective

Nice list. I need to buy a new stereo receiver with built in preamp and turntable, I'm still using my parents' old one from the early 70's. Yeesh.

As far as my 'must-haves', I've already got a few:

Aerosmith - Get Your Wings
Aerosmith - Toys In the Attic
Elton John - 11-17-70
Elton John - Tumbleweed Connection
Michael Jackson - Off the Wall
Tom Petty - Full Moon Fever

A list of my 'wants' currently consists of only a few:

Led Zeppelin - IV
Neil Young - Greatest Hits
Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers

Another great list... Mine is always expanding.

I actually went to this Forever Young record store yesterday during my lunch break. First time I've been there. This has to be one of the bigger record stores in the country, its overly impressive. Here's a peak inside:



I walked in and my jaw dropped. All the walls are lined with cassettes. They were spinning some old Dire Straits record that sounded better than I've ever heard anything sound, I didn't even bother to ask what kind of equipment they were using. The aisles of records went on forever, and I found most of the stuff I was looking for in the floor bins (landed there based on alphabetical order). They have just as many foreign releases as they do domestic, its insanity.

I figured I had to grab at least one item on my first visit. So I went with this. Such a great cover. Can't wait to hear it.

Spoiler:


Its obviously more pricey than other places, but the experience alone is worth contributing to keeping this place's doors open. If you're ever in North Texas you have to stop in there sometime. Even if you don't collect vinyl.

Yeah. I wish I had grown up in a time period that was more conducive to this kind of an atmosphere when it comes to my music experience. I will definitely be utilizing this more, even just to poke around for a bit. This place is a relic of the past for sure.

found this pic recently and love it - relates to all of this - and yes, I do collect. Nothing rare or major, mostly older stuff - whatever I come across in thrift stores, garage sales, craigslist, ebay, and the occasional shop (where they know their shit - I recently came across unpriced Eminem - Marshall Mathers and Jay Z - Blueprint V2. Of course, they checked and said they were manager only (basically $100 or more). Thought I was sitting on a goldmine.

I just got into vinyl this year and have really enjoyed it.

So far (in no particular order), I have...

Paul Simon - Graceland
Paul Simon - There Goes Rhymin' Simon
Simon & Garfunkel - Bridge Over Troubled Water
Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
Queen - A Night at the Opera
Jeff Buckley - Grace
Beatles - Sgt. Peppers
DMB - Away From the World
DMB - Trax1

I also have BTCS and Big Whiskey, but they're both signed by Dave and framed on my wall. Big Whiskey will be easy to pick up a spare copy at some point, though.

Since you seem to be the fellow Paul Simon fan around here...

I'm looking for his '72 self-titled solo debut on vinyl. At the top of my list now (after picking up the 25 yr Graceland the other day). I also found an import of One Trick Pony. Didn't grab it though, they had a few copies, I'll sit on that one for a while.

I love all the old soundtracks - Big Chill, American Graffiti, Vision Quest, Lost Boys, and many more.

I just have this - got it real cheap!

The Complete Albums collection of Paul Simon dropped this week. If it had been released on vinyl I'd entertain the thought of grabbing it/asking for it for the holidays.

Its all CD and digital though.

Oh, yes. Paul Simon is what I grew up on. My dad or an uncle who would play his albums (especially on car trips) - I fell in love with Graceland very early on.

I'm always on the lookout for more of his vinyls and can usually find them used for pretty decent prices if I keep an eye out.
