Happy to see you back, JoeBala! I was about to post a new vinyl thread... lol Yeah, I'm still working on the cosmetics of the Technics SL-20 but I have a near mint Technics SL-23 I'm listening to vinyl on right now... Checking out some old vinyl I bought in lots on Ebay weeks ago. Only one dud so far--Donna Summer's "Live And More" had 3 lps crammed into one sleeve on a double album cover! eek They are warped beyond repair. eek Fortunately, there are a lot on Ebay; I can replace that when I get back from my son's college graduation. cool

.

Currently listening to Wings Over America, which I haven't heard in decades--sounds great! music

They have some on Discogs. I resisted the temptation of getting their double
live album Person To Person. Soul Searching is another good one by them.

Morning org! Hey Mickey Dolenz post some pics of your vinyl setup! πŸ‘πŸ‘β˜•
Wiki
There's No Gettin' Over Me is the thirteenth studio album by country music artist Ronnie Milsap, released in 1981 by RCA Records. The album produced two No. 1 hits for Milsap, including the title track, which also peaked at No. 2 on the Adult Contemporary chart and No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100. "I Wouldn't Have Missed It For the World," the other #1 single, also reached No. 20 and No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and Adult Contemporary charts, respectively.

Very cool find recently. I used to like him back in the 80s when country got popular again. There was a great country station on the radio, but no longer in NYC. Great condition A- TS find. Hopefully I'll find a greatest hits or more albums. David Briggs is featured on Electric Paino. Produced by Milsap and Tom Collins. It's a great album.

The Partridge Family

Wiki

The Partridge Family Notebook is the sixth studio album by The Partridge Family. Released in November 1972, the album entered Billboard's Top LP's chart in December, peaking at no. 41 in January 1973 – the same week in which its lead single, a cover of Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil's "Looking Through the Eyes of Love", peaked at 39 on Billboard's Hot 100. The album remained in the Top 200 for 16 weeks, and was the first by the Partridge Family not to reach the Top 40.

The Partridges' version of "Looking Through the Eyes of Love" – originally a hit for Gene Pitney in 1965 (US 28/UK 3) – fared better in the UK, where it peaked at no. 9 in late February and early March, at the height of both the glam rock era and David Cassidy's career as a teen idol solo star in Great Britain and Ireland. The single, which shared the Top Ten with glam giants Slade, the Sweet and Gary Glitter, immediately followed Cassidy's solo hit "Rock Me Baby" in the charts (UK no. 11/US 38) and slightly overlapped with Cassidy's next UK solo hit, the double A-side single "I Am a Clown / Some Kind of A Summer" (UK no. 3), which was not released in the States.

Found two PF and a Cassidy solo album at my big haul. 😲 😊In great condition A- condition. Hal Blaine played drums. Nice arrangements along with great vocals by Cassidy. This dude never really got props for his vocal talents. I saw him live once in the 90s comeback tour and he really gave his all. Danny opened the show and he was funny. I had this one already, but got it as a backup. 🎢 🎀✌️

For how long I've been coming to this website, I don't know how to post any pictures. It all feels so 2003. But trust me, those records are in my possession today.

I just listened to Power Station and I love it. Frankie is currently on and it's not what I expected but I am really liking it. The Cream record needs a deep clean and so I'll report back later with that.

Wow, this debut album from the Black Pumas is the best I've heard in a long time... They're an Austin, Texas band that I wanted to hear in 2019 when I was visiting there but I just missed them. Live music is finally coming back to my city and I bought a ticket to see the Black Pumas in December then went out and bought their album. Really great music! music fro

.

P.S. Just got back from my son's graduation with a PhD from UT of Austin and visiting family that lives nearby! We were all fully vaccinated and had a great time! So looking forward to going to live music events again! Among other things... wink

As you can see I bought this one twice. The first one was in good condition and bought about a month and a half ago. Recent find was more mint front, back and vinyl. 😁 So cool to find her stuff here and there in Thrift journeys. More to come. πŸ€“πŸŽΆβœŒπŸ™
