            Miss Tess is a veteran, evolving from folky through a bit of soul to a touch of rockabilly to all of the above. Lake Street Dive has also come from a folky direction, but the new recording is big step toward soul, very well suited to lead singer Rachael Price. Both excellent groups with excellent recordings. Very entertaining.

            Very nice video of Lake Street Dive from the Coen Brothers concert film Another Day Another Time. There are excellent newer and more electric videos on YouTube but I like this one, especially the bassist in the green dress:


            Ditto for this video from Miss Tess and her band The Talkbacks:

                    The Ortofon 2M has surprised me. I had been using either an old Ortofon VMS20e or a current AT95e. It sounds appreciably better than either.

                    The software I use - VinylStudio - grabs album art from Discogs or I get it manually from other online sources.
