Rawinsonde has not created any collections yet.
What are collections?
Agreed, Rama... It is the sound on these kinds of records that makes us want to own good systems.
That little red tag on 138875's cover represents something special to collectors I understand. Maybe the very first pressing?
In my collecting rounds, I've been keeping an eye out for clean, blue label Angels, especially ones for which I have EMI equivalents. Haven't had any luck yet but I know I will eventually find some. I...
There is a website popsike.com where you can enter search criteria like catalog numbers for records and it will return actual auction sale prices realized for matching items. They give you so many s...
Bjarne, After reading your initial post again, let me introduce myself, Ray from Florida. I really like your "avatar?" It's immediately recognizable and also one of my very favorite RCAs. I can rememb...
Nice observations with which I agree. I enjoy reading about music, hi-fi equipment etc, much of it way too expensive for my means, but in relative terms, I am really more of a casual fan as I have o...
He takes things a bit too far for my tastes but I admire him for standing up for his own beliefs and opinions.
Ramma, I see where A. Salvatore provided a link to your Decca/London "Proof" page. Just wondering if you follow his recommendations... I find some very interesting. Also there are other forums where...
An afterthought.... Isn't it interesting that this "stridency" or "brightness" thing in the upper strings has mostly been associated with the LONDON (not DECCA) name. Could this be propaganda from t...
A few years ago I had 3 or 4 boxes of London Bluebacks, selling off most of them on Ebay to supplement my income. I was holding a few of my favorites and some of the most valued ones until the end. ...
I found a 3-LP EMI box set at a thrift the other day with 3 different labels, 3rd, 4th, and 5th... Bach's Christmas Oratorio SLS-5098. It is probably close to worthless but I picked the set up anyway...
Interesting about the Angel- Blue label! I always thought those were reissues of EMI-Columbia or Red-Label Angels.
It is amazing to me that collectors will pay, say... 200 bucks for an original LP when a splendid reissue of that same recording might be virtually worthless (or maybe 5 or 10 bucks)... and a lot of ...
It seems these great records are getting very scarce, everywhere nowadays. The vast majority of my collection was gotten from about 1992 to 1998 from auctions, estate sales, thrifts, yard and garage ...
What is the catalog numbers? (look on the labels)
I think it is worth noting that these British Columbias (SAX-xxxx) come in one of 3 incarnations... The first pressing label had silver lines on a pale turquoise background and was issued up until ab...
Thanks for the advice. I did not know about ebay-uk. The only downfall I can think of is the shipping charges from the uk to the us. Of course for an expensive record, the shipping costs are a seco...
Good Work, Ramma... I guess that is as close to proof as could be had. I had a copy of this one on London Treasury (orange label) and as I remember, the sound was terrific! This is one of the recordi...
Ramma, That Stravinsky record I've been looking for ...for years! I love Stravinsky music and have several renditions of his ballets. Another one that has eluded me is SXL-2017, the Firebird, a disk...
Very good Mercury examples here...I have at least one copy of them all. The Copeland (sr-90172) especially conveys the very essence of the Mercury sound... a very "up front" and in-your-face presenta...
Thanks for the kind comments, ramma. I have several more I could post as time permits. It's nice to know they're appreciated! I think one of the main attractions of vinyl is in the beauty of the jac...
Just wondering, Didn't he mean "slick" not "sick" ??
I first bought my copy of lsc-2150 overseas, a Teldec.... a great recording is just that...a great recording, on any label. Differences in pressings (if any) to my mind, are totally subtractive... In...
Your records are making me salivate all over my keyboard!
I find that interesting about the "SAXD". I understand the French (saxf) outperforms the UK equivalent, but hadn't heard that about the Italian. I have a few UK SAXs but haven't come across either of ...
You make some good points about the differences of equipment in those days. Those stacker-changers were pretty much "record-wreckers" ... pretty crude stuff! Of all the "audiophile" labels (and gene...
I'll have to re-think my mantra "There is no such thing as too many records" ... ( 3 thousand is a lot different than 3 million!)
Out of all the Deccas and Londons (sxl vs CS-6xxx) series I have collected, the Deccas have been by far found in the best conditions. However comparing conditions of ALL the collectibles, the UK reco...
London vs Decca remains one of the true enigmas of the audiophile-collector community! Something I've wondered - Can't the grooves themselves be analyzed to either be different or the same? Don't th...
I want this record !!!!
