This pic is from a theater in the north that in the glory days must have been amazing. If you look in the rubble you can see several LF cabinets. I'll never pass another decrepit theater without wanting to break in. I imagine the hf sections are just laying in the rubble decaying even further. There is also an amazing organ back there as well...... Sigh....
I don't see Bell hi-fi gear very often but I love the 50's design. I'm a sucker for the MCM look. Guess I have something else to put on my ebay saved search. My ebay saved searches are a little out of control....
Check out this minty mono Audax KT-12 tonearm which sold $14.95 back in the good ole days. I think I need one of these to go with a mono Klipschorn system. I think I have a room or two left that still need a system.
There was a band in the 90's my friends and I used to go see called Doo Rag. They were awesome. They would bang on piece's of tin scrape washboards make crazy sounds and generally freak the hell out. They were noisy and cacaphonic. I miss them. Well I was looking them up today and found this kick ass piece by Bob Log III. This is what he they evolved into. Sometimes I get tired of the smooth clean sounds and want to hear some manic heavy grit music. I know this will annoy some but I dig it. The albums are much cleaner sounding than the live cuts and very interesting.
My main question is that if this is Bob Log III what has happened to the Bob Log's that preceded him?
Have you seen the movie Space Is The Place? If not add it to the list. I think one of my dream concerts would be Sun Ra and Blow Fly separate shows followed by a Jam session..... Does that sound cool or do I need to work on quelling those voices in my head?
Here is some footage of Sun Ra in Helsinki 1971.
This is very cool thanks Martin!!!!
I hate commentary about artist for instance Sun Ra ain't no mumbo jumbo but killer footage. I've got to buy this documentary...
Dynaco MK's were among the first tube amps I heard. The modified MK's were rather fun and the rebuild they did on them looked great. I'm not sure what I would think of them today but I have fond memories of them.
I picked up a small stack of Radio News magazines from 1930 and 1931. Needless to see I was excited to see the WE16A even though it was being advertised as the FOX Ram's Horn. Perhaps better marketing name than the 16A but I've never seen it sold by anyone else. Very cool.
I'm sure Jeffrey and Joe saw this coming but OMG I can't believe it took me so long to get Sound Practices magazine. If you are interested in the things I post here than Sound Practices is a must. The 16 issues are available on ebay for the low price of $29.00. I got a copy yesterday and I have been reading ever since. My eyes are soar and my butt hurts from not moving off the couch while reading these articles.
I am glad that I only now have come across Sound Practices as it would have influenced my posting. There are things I wouldn't have bothered with as Sound Practices has been there and done that already. The truth is I seem about 10-15 years behind the times. Oh well it seems I have some catching up to do :)
Thank you Joe.
Ebay link to Sound Practices ---> Ebay Store Just buy it.
