  1. Does this information allow me to determine whether this record was from the original or a subsequent pressing? Thanks
  2. Now THAT is what I’m talking about! Ding ding ding! We have a winner! Seriously, thank you. This is EXACTLY what I’m looking for.
  3. Okay, lets put some of this knowledge to use. (Translation: someone tell me what I can’t figure out on my own.) I just picked up a used VG+ copy of LZI. On the label: SD 8216. Deadwax, there’s a bunch of stuff. ST-A-681461 on side A and same but ending in 2 on side B. Also in deadwax: A, AT, W, LWP, RP, RG. These last two appear only on side A. Who wants to play?
  4. This looks like a great place to start. Thanks all. A quick follow up, if you don’t mind. I see notations like these often: A/1, B/3, etc. Can anyone shed any light on what these designate? Thanks again!
  5. Posted this to main forum yesterday. It’s still early, but no replies. I’ll post here also. A request: Record Identification Tutorial (Vinyl 101) So, what do all those letters and numbers mean? Another newbie and I thought it might be helpful if some of you experts would be gracious enough to pass on some of your knowledge in this area. On the label and in the dead wax there are codes. (For example, I’ve noticed many of my LZ records have “SD” followed by numbers in the upper half of the label, ST-A- followed by numbers beneath the track listings.) Anyone willing to give us a brie

(For example, I’ve noticed many of my LZ records have “SD” followed by numbers in the upper half of the label, ST-A- followed by numbers beneath the track listings.) Anyone willing to give us a brief lesson on what these mean and more importantly what we should look for as vinyl collectors? Much thanks!
  7. I’ll try to remember to do it tomorrow. Thanks for the reminder.
  8. Of course. It’s fun and interesting to share in each other’s musical explorations. Your post inspired me to post a request — a basic tutorial on record identification. (What do all those letters and numbers mean?) I definitely need a lesson. Will do that soon. Be ware of this scam, when looking for the turquoise label. I came across what purported to be one on Ebay for $200. Too good to be true, right? Yes indeed. The label actually isn’t turquoise but blue and it’s a fake. There’s a brief discussion on it on the Steve Hoffman vinyl forum, which is a gold mine of information, if you haven
  9. Ah! Thanks! I actually have that file folder also. Are these the same performances that would later be BBC Sessions, Paris ‘71?
  10. Anyone seen this before (pics attached)? It’s a white vinyl, picture disc with live STH on one side and live Heartbreaker on the other. It sounds like the same recordings that are on BBC Sessions. BUT, I bought this at a record show circa 1982, decades before the BBC record was released. (I think.) I looked online and could not find any other evidence of its existence. Any idea where this came from, how rare it is, etc.? I’m mostly just curious. Thanks

  12. As some of you know, I’ve Been recreating my LZ vinyl collection. This forum has proven invaluable in the process. I’ve now done my own research and listening and can share the results. IMO, any non-remastered vinyl (I’m still learning the vocabulary and hesitate to say “original”) beats out any remastered vinyl, including the Classic Records remasters, which sound very, very good. The problem lies in finding clean copies of records produced 40-50 years ago. I now own 6 Classic Records remasters. They sound great. But, aside from the surface noise that usually accompanies old vinyl, my beat up
  13. Thanks for checking in. Yes, I’ve managed to track down all CR reissues except I and ITTOD. (Presence is on its way.) The prices have been steep, but nowhere near as high as some I’ve seen. I swear, I see some CRs for over $500 and at least one copy of I for, I kid you not, $1.4k Because I know some are interested, at risk of being gauche, I got all for between $100-175, mostly on EBay, looking daily and snatching up “buy nows” instead of waiting for auctions. All in M or NM. I did spend $240 on PG, but it’s my favorite and obviously a double LP. I’m very happy with the sound quality of all so
