Re: 16th and 17th Century European Religious documents

I was really pleased to obtain a 1634 Anno Domini Graeca - Latinum Spelling & Grammar book. It is a Beautifully Bound book, Gilded, and makes a nice "mirror" reference book to the original Latin. I do not like to use "modern" Latin, or Ecclisiastical Latin, since both are essentially Latin words rea...

Re: The Dylan Thread gets a bit Silly

I imagine a great many couples disagree on much more than simply a musician they like or not and do just fine. I know my wife has long expected ANYTHING, any bizarre noise (to her ears), to vibrate the walls of the house and pop the lightbulbs. She was puzzled by Wild Man Fischer's 1st LP, but so am...

Re: The Dylan Thread

Nobel Prize winner.. Congratulations to Dylan! I smiled upon hearing this just a few minutes ago - for I believe those I know (well) are more or less equally split - either loving or loathing Bob Dylan. Why? I don't know. One old friend, now a State away, plays early pieces from a "special system" ...

Re: Last few Needles with History

Below is a link to an image of the "French Pathé" Oval sapphire needle for a "vertical" disc. We usually think of waves moving side to side in records, but in this "Hill and Dale" style, the waves are going Up and Down. This idea did not last, yet I have a few NOS, still unplayed Pathé discs, and a ...

Re: Last album you bought?

The Doctors of Madness "Late Night Movies, All Night Brainstorms" 1976, UK, Polydor. (spare). This LP, and the 2nd LP, were apparently not released in the USA until 1978 as a 2LP SET. (further down). I first heard this LP from a 1979 Box Set by Deutche Grammaphone, "SOUNDS" - (subtitled) - [10 LPs ...

Re: Last few albums/lp's you bought?

Just Arrived - Beautifully and Carefully Boxed. I have, with the intent of finding as many Mint (spare), Sealed Original LPs as possible, added these today. They are noticeably much heavier than other (new) recordings that arrived along with them. Both are like new, and the markings are those of the...
