Yea I love it ZIP!!

I tell ya since I got a record player again (A 1968 beautfiul one (all 4 speeds)) i have collected alot of 60s and 70s rock bands amoung others.... 70s was the ultimate time for rock and roll!! (Slowly started to drop off in the 80s :()

I hadnt ever heard of CACTUS and saw the album the other day @ salvation army and didnt know what kind of music they played.. When i saw "This album should be played at HIGH level" I figured it was rock and wanted to give them a try!! (I figured seeing it was from 1969/70 it would be awesome)

Im glad I did,like you said ITS GREAT!! -- One time I got another album from a band I didnt know (1986) and it was horrible!!! -- Swearing in the songs,couldnt understand them sometimes,etc..... I got rid of it the next day :D (Also Rock)

I love analog!! -- Simply beautiful in a way that cant ever be had again... (I am grateful for the analog media I have been able to find!!)

The Dude March 17th, 2014 10:19 PM

I got a record today: Average White band - Soul searching

Ned Seagoon March 18th, 2014 12:11 PM


[mee-dee-uh] noun
1. a plural of medium.
2. (usually used with a plural verb) the means of communication, as radio and television, newspapers, and magazines, that reach or influence people widely: The media are covering the speech tonight.

Not bought any Media recently, I leave that to people in the following list:
  • Joseph Marinaccio
However if you are referring to music CDs (perhaps you should have said that) I recently bought a CD of the music from the Rocky Horror show which I attend recently to celebrate to 40th year since it originally was presented.

The Dude March 19th, 2014 11:26 PM

Im referring to ANY MEDIA :) (VHS,records,etc :))

zipulrich March 20th, 2014 12:22 PM

I always assumed you did, Beano. About a mile long.

Isn't that the reason you moved to Canukistan? ;)

Mr Bean March 20th, 2014 11:48 PM

Can't believe they let me in. Getting like the States. They'll let any Brits move to the Boston area :D

The Dude March 20th, 2014 11:52 PM

Today I got

I also got "Raise the titanic" today on VHS :) (1980)

The Dude March 23rd, 2014 06:43 AM

I got a cassette on saturday :)

Neil Diamonds Greatest Hits - VOL II


Defcon 4 (1985)

I wasnt gonna get this @ first the other day as on the box it says "Recorded in Quality Extended Play" and that means SLP and the quality is usually crap!!

But Today I got it and when i put it in my VCR went to SP mode and I was happy!! (They must have @ 1 time recorded that movie in SLP but realised how bad it was and then did them in SP and just didnt change the box (Same thing I saw with FRIDAY THE 13th -- On that box it said EP/SLP but when I put it in,VERY HAPPY TO SEE IT WAS IN SP!! (Figured it was seeing the amount of tape on the spool (For both))))

I just cant figure out why these companies ever started putting movies IN ANYTHING BUT SP MODE!! (They arent saving anything if people dont like it!!)

Ned Seagoon September 13th, 2014 02:23 PM

I've thrown out all my Vinyl records along with my Cassettes, VHS and Beta Tapes together with the couple of wax cylinder recordings. However I'm working on a white noise generator along with a clicks and plops generator and an HF attenuation filter so that the old sounds can be reproduced from CD and DVD sounds.

This should keep the enthusiasts happy, :rotflmao:

The Dude September 14th, 2014 02:05 PM
