Regarding my mention of pre-decimalisation UK currency... just been listening to Legend of a Mind by the Moody Blues ("In Search of the Lost Chord" 1968, re-issued on the album "This Is The Moody Blues") which have some interesting lyrics...

Timothy Leary's dead.
No, no, no, no, He's outside looking in.
Timothy Leary's dead.
No, no, no, no, He's outside looking in.
He'll fly his astral plane,
Takes you trips around the bay,
Brings you back the same day,
Timothy Leary. Timothy Leary.

Timothy Leary's dead.
No, no, no, no, He's outside looking in.
Timothy Leary's dead.
No, no, no, no, He's outside looking in.
He'll fly his astral plane,
Takes you trips around the bay,
Brings you back the same day,
Timothy Leary. Timothy Leary.

Along the coast you'll hear them boast
About a light they say that shines so clear.
So raise your glass, we'll drink a toast
To the little man who sells you thrills along the pier.

He'll take you up, he'll bring you down,
He'll plant your feet back firmly on the ground.
He flies so high, he swoops so low,
He knows exactly which way he's gonna go.
Timothy Leary. Timothy Leary.

He'll take you up, he'll bring you down,
He'll plant your feet back on the ground.
He'll fly so high, he'll swoop so low.
Timothy Leary.

He'll fly his astral plane.
He'll take you trips around the bay.
He'll bring you back the same day.
Timothy Leary. Timothy Leary.
Timothy Leary. Timothy Leary.
Timothy Leary.

LOL

XTC's Black Sea had a spin today, curious slice of quirky guitar pop but I'd forgotten (or never heard properly) all the little bits of percussion and keyboards.
On the earlier postings I have a few poor pressings, including side 1 of the La's debut album.

Yes it is truly sad. I've never heard a fully satisfying version of that album and still it's one of my all time favourites Big smileCry

Also when I examined it again the record wasn't that thick after all, just standard.

However it still sounds very good and as for Heart of the snrise I couldn't hear any problems with it. The copy sounded even better, I suspect, as I played it just after a newly remastered "audiophile" pressing of Close to the edge which was absolute Censored. It was done by "Friday music", never heard of them before and never buying any of their records again.


I suppose it could be that my copy is a bad pressing, but having heard other Eddy Offord engineered offerings I must have a collection of badly pressed records....

As for Close to the Edge, such a wonderful piece ruined beyond imagination by some Censored, and that was the original from the 70's!

I played Stanley Clarke's "If this bass could only talk" yesterday. Well produced jazz funk and I was struck by how much clearer the opening and closing tracks of bass and tap dancing are with the Reflex M. It is fun to listen to and the different reverb/echoes are revealed.
