    Some recent purchases on vinyl that I'm enjoying just now - some have accompanying download codes, others I ripped:

    Tokyo Flashback - a first press on vinyl for an early 1990s compilation of Japanese psych music. Includes luminaries such as Keiji Haino (one track solo and one with Fushitsusha, Ghost and so forth. There's a download code redeemable via Bandcamp.

    Spacemen 3 - Performance A live LP from 1988. Came with a download code via Bandcamp, but it doesn't work.

    Godspeed You! Black Emperor - F♯ A♯ ∞ Their first LP, I think this is an old copy but not of the first edition, comes with an enveloped of reprinted concert flyers a penny flattened on a railway line and so forth.

    I found it annoying that they had the WAV but didn't have a FLAC. I'm not sure just what the point is. I ended up buying elsewhere.

    I have seen several places offering wav downloads but not flac. Not a big deal to convert to flac, but the lack of tags is annoying.

    I just saw the documentary on The Wrecking Crew last night, and have been listening to some of the music that this amorphous assemblage played on back in the sixties and seventies. It's jaw dropping how well they played, and who they played with, a generation of American music:

    The Beach Boys (including Pet Sounds) - almost all the instruments on the recordings, from charts by Brian Wilson

    Jan and Dean

    Phil Spector's wall-of-sound productions, including the marathon production of the Christmas record

    Elvis Presley

    Frank and Nancy Sinatra

    Herb Alpert

    Sonny and Cher

    Mamas and Papas

    And the list goes on and on.

    Bass player and sometime guitarist Carol Kay was a treat to see interviewed, on both technical bass playing and on the issues with being a woman in an almost entirely male environment. Tough lady and just the best bass player.

    It's also provides great insight into how the music was created during that era, and about how quickly the scene can change. One moment they're on top of the world, the next they're scrabbling for work and being security guards -- or doing comic self-mocking turns on schlocky tv.

    At the moment I'm listening to the Something Stupid joint recording of Frank and Nancy, done with the Wrecking Crew. Lots of great commentary by Nancy in the documentary. And the song is not as father-daughter creepy as the single photo might imply.

    The Wrecking Crew documentary is fantastic. I read the book as well (see link). Simply amazing to think about all the hits that came out of those folks.

    I've been considering which version of Auld Lang Syne to play at midnight, and have a winner! There was never any doubt:

    Eddi Reader's version is not only authentic and complete (not just one verse), but sublime. It's on her Songs of Robert Burns. She's a Scottish national treasure, with a long career in high-grade pop and roots music.

    Thanks. Beautiful! My favorite version is on an old Cajun Christmas compilation. It is Michael Doucet and Beausoleil (youtube link below). I'm looking forward to seeing the band in a week or so.
