    I'm playing a newly released double album of demos and other rarities by the shortlived band Swell Maps - Mayday Signals.
    I was a little doubtful about how worthwhile this album would be - usual reservations about albums of rarities and demos, but as a Swell Maps aficionado, this seems pretty good to me.

    This one's growing on me: The Snuts W.L.. I found the vocals a little too 'up-front', but with a few listens I'm coming round.

    Speaking of German bands: one of my favorite bands at all is Klaus Doldinger's Passport. They are just celebrating their 50th birthday and Klaus Doldinger even his 85th. And they are still active! Members of the band have changed throughout the years and Doldinger is the only original member (and leader). He's not only playing the saxophone in this jazz fusion band but is also composing all the pieces of the band and is known as a composer for film music.

    They have just released a nice album called "The first 50 years of Passport".

    A couple of triple LPs that arrived this week:

    Coil - Love's Secret Domain 30th Anniversary edition. Beefed up from the original CD length release with a bunch of out-takes and demos. Interesting sonic experimentation from the early 1990s. Didn't come with a download code, but it's a nice pressing.

    Murcof - The Alias Sessions. Nice electronica, described as spectral, minimalist electronic music...came with a download code via Bandcamp for files at high enough resolution that my SqueezeAMP conks.

    Both these were pre-orders from January, with release delayed in each case by 1-3 weeks. Seems the vinyl supply chain is finding production hard to keep up with.

    Yes, I record my vinyl to flac (unless a download is provided) - 16/44.1, using the USB output from my phono stage to my MacBook running Audacity. I use the the flacs for portability, plus the household doesn't care for my taste in music and my amplifier has no headphone output so I'm often playing the rips via LMS.

    Incidentally, the SqueezeAMP issue was something else, as it turns out - I posted in the 3rd Party Hardware forum.

    Thats good to know that I'm not the only person who does this. Many people just look at me and say why? We know though.

    I use a Behringer UCA202 on the tape loop of my amp to rip to FLAC at 16/44.1 to a small Windows laptop that I use solely for the pupose but I use VinylStudio instead of Audacity - its much easier -and then do a post processing for Replay Gain through Foobar2000

    I think you've recommended VinylStudio to me before :-) - I switch my amp off while ripping, as I think there's a bit of EM hum that gets through. Not that it bothers me when playing LPs. I have never used Replay Gain.

    I have too much vinyl, and I am trying to buy less of it due to lack of storage space. I don't often buy CDs, so I either go for downloads or vinyl.
