    I'm wondering if anyone has heard the Carly Simon No Secrets DVD-A....way back when, I thought that was a great album...and Paul and Linda are on 1 track. I have the DVD-A discs of Mac Rumours and GD Amercian Beauty...both are exceptional in sound and well thought out mixes. If these were done right, it really might make some of my collection obsolete....and I have 30,000 quality lps! null

    I own No Secrets and think it sounds great. It includes a 24/192 stereo track which is my favorite way to listen.

    lennonfannn,

    Did I read this right? You have 30,000 LPs? That is mind-blowing mate. What sort of storage system do you use? How do you catalog these records? I just can't imagine how much space they take up. Incredible.

    Regards,
    Metralla

    heh...yeah, I got 30,000 lps, and about 2000 8-tracks, plus 300 quad 8-tracks, 1000 prerecorded reels, few thousand cds and storage is a pain! I have 3 floors in my house and just about every room has albums/tapes etc. so I guess you could say I'm a junkie ;)

    Welcome! I think you win the big collection Blue Ribbon in this group with all those records and tapes, yikes!

    Right away, 3 questions spring to mind, if you could help me:

    1) Do you play the quad carts on a quad deck, or have you been able to play the tape (removed from the cart) on a reel-to-reel deck? In either case, what is the rest of the quad playback system?

    2) Do you have a 7.5ips reel for Bridge Over Troubled Water (US Columbia CQ series)?

    3) How many 7", 10", and 78s do you have? And do you have a music book collection, also?

    Ha, these are pretty odd questions, arent't they? I don't want to pry, but I'm sure I'll have more sensible ones once I recover from your totals! :-O

    hmm..doing this from memory, so if i miss anything just ask it again ;)
    Columbia never released quad reels. I have the Q8 of S&G Bridge Over, however...a nice mix I might add.
    I count my 78's in with albums, since some actually make up albums :)
    I don't count 45's, tho, but I have a few thousand of those as well...
    I also have several dozen 2-track playtapes (know about those?) LOL
    they're like little mini 8-tracks with 4 cuts. I have the Beatles revolver and Sgt. Pepper, the mono mixes were used.
    I collect Beatles, Yma Sumac, Nico, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Doors, Stones, Andrea Bocelli, Elton, Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac and a host of others.

    lennonfannn,

    Nico - now there's a blast from the past. I hadn't thought about here in ages until recently.

    Last weekend I saw one of her CDs in Tower. I was a very big fan of hers in the '80s and have many of her records.

    Unfortunately, all my vinyl is in storage in Australia while I work here in the States. So I had forgotten about my obsession with Nico.

    I had another reminder of this fascinating creature when I read Ray Manzarak's book on The Doors - excellent read, guys - wherein he described the famous visit by our psychedelic lads to chez Warhol (you would have seen a very distorted view by Stone in the movie). Apparently, our young chanteuse was particularly adept at a French trick, and Jim seemed to appreciate it. But I digress. Read the book - it's a good one.

    Nico's music was very heady stuff, trippy but quite intelligent. It's hard for me to remember all my favourites, but the song "Janitor of Lunacy" sticks in my mind (such a cool title). I really liked the albums "Desert Shore", "Chelsea Girl" and "The End". The sound on those albums was pretty good, especially some of the French pressings I have. Yeah - "Desert Shore" I think it was the best. Of course, my memories of Nico are tied to a pretty exotic woman in my life - but we know how it goes, eh?

    Now I'm thinking about that CD of "Chelsea Girl" I saw ... I wonder what the transfer's like. Not as interesting as "Desert Shore" - I'd buy that immediately if I saw it.

    Anyway, thanks for the memory.

    Regards,
    Metralla

    Hey Lennonfan,

    Would you, at all have a LP by the name of "Black Mass" by a group called "LUCIFER"? No, not Heavy Metal. It's actually a very prestegious MOOG synth wizard by the name of MORT GARSON.

    Should be UNI/MCA 3111. I caught my eye of this on 8trackheaven.com, and the music is really tripped out. I don't blame you if you have not ONE similar moog record in your vast collection....

    Anyway, welcome!

    As far as Nico, the transfer of Chelsea Girl to cd is not particularly good...better than the lp, but not much. (Verve pressings in the U.S. really aren't anything to write home about ;). On ebay i found an unopened original 8-track of Chelsea Girl that I couldn't resist rehabbing and playing...truly incredible...it's one of those rare occurances where the 8-track has all the other formats beat, but I believe there's an open reel of it, so that would win if true..problem is they only probably made about 10 of them :(

    As far as 'Lucifer' goes, I have an album titled Lucifer's friend, a rare quad album. I think I know of the album you speak of, but I only think I had the 8-track version (I know I speak of 8-tracks a lot...but they're a great way of getting classic music cheap, I just yesterday bought a collection of 650 tapes for $60! Of course much of that is crap that I put up on ebay for use as blanks or parts (unless you -like- listening to Arthur Fiedler or Englebert) but if all goes well, I make a few bucks off the discards and keep the ones I want, which was about 55 out of this lot.
    Now if I could just find that 8-track of Velvet Underground and Nico ;)

    Oh, I was asking about the STEREO reel tape of BOTW at 7.5ips, not a quad product.

    I saw the CQ prefix on some 7.5 ips Columbia stereo reels, and HC on the 3.75 ips stereo versions.

    So, the question I meant was whether you had a 7.5 ips Columbia stereo reel of BOTW.

    Thanks!

    I don't believe S&G Bridge was released in 7.5 ips format, because Columbia switched nearly all of their product to 3.75 ips by the time that album was released. I do have all the other albums they put out in 7.5 ips fomat, tho...got 'em at a yard sale for $5 each ;)
    Today at the flea market, I picked up a stunning Meet The Beatles orig. Stereo Near Mint for $5, and a green vinyl Elvis' Christmas album for the same price....ah, life is good...

    Ah, that would explain why I haven't been able to find one, yet! :)

    Unfortunately, the 3.75ips S&G reels are pretty dodgy, as one might expect. (IMHO!)

    Thank you!
