I've listened once, will listen twice and give a review, but I plan to listen a "number" of more times in the future!

So I got it and I listened to it and I got the theme right away and I heard some stuff I wasn't familiar with toward the end and I liked it!

Do not worry though I am trailing you on the interstate waiting to pass, I am only driving a 4 cyl Ford Ranger and am in no hurry. ;-)

I know I have a pretty busy October on tap so I'd be OK with switching with anyone other than July. If not I'll just work on getting it done earlier and have it in the wings.

Thanks !

yes its the 9 minute version of Suzie Q.  This Evil Woman is different from Crow's which is different from ELO's.

That is a psychedelic (reverbed to death I'm guessing) banjo on Stop! Stop! Stop!.  This song got me to look at banjo's in a whole different way.

Alabama Song is also one of my favorite Doors tracks as well as Soul Kitchen in lesser played Doors stuff.  I started to write a reply yesterday and went to look up the actual lyrics and wherever it was I went got the fake virus alert and had to close my browser down entirely.  Pissed me off and knocked the wind out of a lot of sails with a dozen or so open tabs.  Grrr.

I have 5 or 6 Nektar albums that I just have to get to and 2 of them are double albums.  So patience, you can have first crack at them.

Each album or two sides takes 3 to 4 hours to rip which includes cleaning and then playing each side a minimum of 3 times.  Then comes the repair process.

The VPI RecordCleaningMachine is awesome and reveals what you hear, but it does not remove scratches.  It cleans them so well that the hours it takes to get out the scratches are worthwhile.  I remove the scratches from the rips by hand using a pencil tool in wave editing by actually redrawing the wave "line".  It leaves behind what you hear.  I have programs which can do a lot to remove lightweight scratches with a couple of mouse clicks, but they don't get the big ones and they alter the sound too much.  I don't remember exactly, but I prolly have about 8 to 10 man hours just in Suzie Q of just sitting and drawing out the scratches and crackle.  It's just plain grunt work, but it is so worth it.  I wish that I had google glasses so that I could record the process in real time just to make a tutorial for the process.  The results are incredibly amazing, but watching it done would be extremely boring and hearing it is even worse.  The wife hears the process and has yet to kill me or burn dinner on purpose, but I can tell when its time to do something else.

Sird's comment on S Q got me to spend all day yesterday and most of this morning finishing up side two of that album.  This is the 1st Fantasy deep groove heavy vinyl pressing.  The person that I was working with on that album purchase heard the rip of it and said it was one of the most amazing versions / pressings he has heard of it but that it had too many scratches to replace his copy.  But it sure sounds really nice all cleaned up.  It would be safe to say that I have 40 to 50 man hours alone in this album so far.

I never thought of CCR's first album as psychedelic, it was just CCR to me.  But having gotten really familiar with it the past month or so, it sure as hell is.  Side 2 has the song Porterville.  I had totally forgotten about it for the past 50 years, but when I played it and heard it again, I recognized it as one of those long lost, loved tunes from my 'formative years'.  Very trippy and haunting. They wrote many songs about little California towns no one ever heard about.

So I will finish up side 1 and put up both sides tomorrow to grab and hear at y'all's leisure.  It really is a great, great album and this is a great pressing of it.  I'll also put up the side with the most scratches on it just for S&G's in case anyone is curious.  I'll also put up the tracks from the mixtape in case anyone wants the individual tracks.

If it's the 9-minute version, Bill used to play it. Been a while since I heard it, but this says it got played recently. Maybe it was the edited version but I don't think so.

Cool playlist, Kurt!

RPMCC 15 COVER CROPPED
RPMCC 15 PLAYLIST CROPPED
 If I didn't know any better I would think you were an old DJ circa 69 or 70. I was only a wee lad then, but this totally had the feel of the late AM/early FM daze. I could picture it blasting out of someone's Pontiac GTO on the way to the beach.
it was good to hear another song by Love other than Alone Again. I don't know much about them other than that.
Anything Joe Walsh perks me up
Had no idea Evil Woman was a cover and the original was by Spooky, or do I have that backwards
Sometimes I think they should have renamed Fleetwood Mac, the 2 bands have nothing in common musically. Nice to hear some of the Peter Green stuff.
I've heard Jimi's Little Wing so much I totally forgot about the Clapton version.
I picked up the same Association LP at a garage sale last summer so I've been grooving on them of late, so many good songs they had.
Tull is an old favorite, and hey I'm sure there is a girl out there somewhere named "inside"
I might have to get a line on that record cleaner you have. I've been using the spin thing on old stuff I buy. Your rips are spotless, amazing! Glad you are sharing your collection with us. And again if you find any Nektar you want to part with hook me up. Great mix DJ Kurtster {#Devil_pimp}
