Sorry, this topic a bit similar with another 'what do you listening' thread, but vinyl is very special thing to me...

So, what music do you playing on vinyl, now, what model of turntable you have using?

Just fixed my turntable. All day I play:

The Doors Soft Parade
Rory Against The Graine
Django Reihardt

and a less Bob Dylan and Joan Baez.

I'm have using soviet union two rare and old turntables with new catridges (Sumiko Pearl Gold)
Electronika b1-011 ( clone of Thorens TD-125 )
Electronika 017

Good morning Jim,

Happy to hear that you are listening to`s my favorite !
Last night I listened to Gov`t Mule`s 2009 double vinyl By A Thread, after getting the update for this years Warren Haynes` Christmas Jam(My son and I are planning to go):

This morning as I wait on it to warm up and the fog to burn I can go outside and work, I am listening to Joe Bonamassa`s 2006 vinyl called You and Me. I am listening to this as I watch my fellow Pennsylvanians rescue the miners in Chili. We know alot about deep mines around here. The first woman to ever die in a deep mine was only about 20 miles from here. I hope they all get out in the best of health.

I am playing my vinyls on a Technics turntable(quartz direct drive SL-QD22), through a Pioneer equalizer(CR-408), through a Pioneer receiver(VSX-D308), through Bose 501 speakers. My equiptment is now about 15 years old, and you`re making me think about ordering a new stylus or two for the holidays.

Hi Rick!

I play now german Irish Tour double LP... but.. the sound... mmm.. how to say...has no much higher frequences and smooth a little.
But others like Against The Grain, Photofinish or Top Priority sounds very warm and brightly.

Your IT is sounds great?

I didn't want to lift up down catridge...

This Morning I was listening to two new 45 rpms that came in the mail yesterday.

Fraternity Of Man.......Don`t Bogart Me/Wispy Paisley Skies......1968
This is the song from Easy Rider.
This is a band that Richie Hayward was in before co/founding Little Feat.
Most people know this song as: Don`t Bogart That Joint My Friend........
It was done alot by Feat over the years.
It was often attached to Lowell George`s song Willin`.
The two worked well together..........still missin` Richie..............

Little Milton.........Sometimey/We Got The Winning Hand.........1966
Warren Haynes got me into Little Milton.
They played together alot leading up to LM`s death.
He`s one of the big reasons why Warren is putting out this new soul CD and playing with this new band.

just an lp guy, livin` in a CD world..............R.K.

Hi Jim,

Creedence Clearwater Revival is some great music ! Their first few albums they put out were amoung the earliest album buying that I did at around 12 years old, when I realized how much more music I`d get if I started buying the full size vinyl albums instead of the 45s. Creedence was releasing about 4 45s for every album, you could get the album cheaper than 4 45s. That how it all began for me.

I love Chamilion too.

I`m listening to some funk tonight. first a vinyl:

Johnny Guitar Watson/Funk Beyond The Call Of Duty/1977
this is nothing special but holds memories of a certain point in time for me in 1978, when this was better than disco !
at some points it`s close to disco, but not quite.
