English Settlement, a studio album by British pop group XTC, released in 1982

Inspired me to listen again to “Dear God” from Skylarking (1986).  Those were some good years.

The Weather Girls, 1982.  Haven’t heard that in ages.

One of the all time greatest orchestral compositions written for a Hollywood musical. "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue."


 

Inside every "God bless your heart" is a tiny "F**k you"

Half Man Half Biscuit (a UK satirical punk band from the 80s, and still going I believe)

 "All I want for Christmas is a Dukla Prague away kit"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAHJN77bqOA

and "Trumpton Riots"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZxkErDC16A

If there is another band that uses toys and childrens cartoon characters as inspirations for social commentary I would like to hear them.  ;D


Princess, would you like to see it light up and hum when I wave it about

ZZ Top's Tres Hombres, especially La Grange. I can still recall the exact time and place where I first heard that over the radio.

I used to have the LP of that album, and I also have the CD. Yesterday I found a 24-bit 192kHz remastered version of the album. Have mercy!

Nine Inch Nails' Hurt (Quiet) from the Downward Spiral album. Until a few minutes ago I didn't know there was a quiet version. I found it on Disk 2 of the deluxe edition. I much prefer this to the loud version.

Johnny Cash's cover of Hurt is superb. There's also an a cappella rendition on YouTube. The female voice crescendo gives me goosebumps every time I hear it.

Just think of all the money we spent on LPs, cassettes and CDs and the equipment to play them on. But I understand vinyl is making a comeback.

Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds.

Agreed. So much obsolete equipment to play obsolete formats. It was stupid of me to buy CD versions of my favorite LPs, but I was swayed by the miraculous absence of snap, crackle and pop resulting from groove wear. Add together all the Betamax and VHS and Laserdisc players I've trashed, plus all the media that went with them. If I'd just stuck with vinyl and then jumped straight to streaming audio and video, I'd now be sunning myself on a beach in Barbados.

I still buy CD, I download to my phone still, but my stereo doesnt have bluetooth and the for some reason it doesnt connect with my phone.  It cost me $600 and I bought it right after I got out of the Army.  Had all that deployment money that was burning a hole in my pocket  :facepalm:

It still works great, sounds great, and no need to replace it yet so I just buy CDs and keep feeding it my music.
