NP: Mankunku Qaurtet - Yakhal Inkomo (Qobuz, rec. 1968) S.African sax player, very enjoyable set. Streaming something digitally after reading on Fremer's site that the stylus cleaner I've used for years (Onkow Zero dust) leaves residue over stylus. This sort of fretting is reason to switch to digital. I'll likely try a liquid cleaner and brush. Been procrastinating around getting stylus re-tipped given many month waiting list. Anyone considering dropping $500 for Coltrane Giant Steps mono from Electric Recording Company? That'd be the most I'd ever spent on a record, and really foolish on so many levels. What's worrying is I'm actually contemplating it. But should get the stylus fixed before any such LP is played. The Electric Recording Company. Regardless, the link is fun to see the tapes. In the meantime, streaming hi-res mono Giant Steps on Qobuz and telling myself this is just fine.
