    Man, Dream Theater, Tool, Genesis, Yes... Smart people dig Prog.

    Throw on In The Court of The Crimson King by King Crimson as well and we have a party.

    Can we add Bridge of Sighs by Robin Trower and Some Captain Beyond to the party?

  • Re: An ode to the album format, and my top 11

    I am album driven and only listen to vinyl at home. In the car it's mp3 albums. On the topic of Pink Floyd I have been listening to them for 45 years now and like all of it. From Meddle, Obscured by Clouds and on is certainly the best . I also feel the same way about The Moody Blues and The Who.
    The following is not in any order and I had a difficult time narrowing it down this far and the above fall in here too.

    +Phenomenon by UFO
    +Children of the Sun by Billy Thorpe
    +Spartacus by Triumvirate
    +Killer by Alice Cooper
    +The Yes Album
    +The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway by Genesis
    +The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars by David Bowie
    +Whipped Cream and Other Delights by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass
    +The Turn of a Friendly Card by The Alan Parsons Project
    +Willy and the Poor Boys by Credance Clearwater Revival
    +Watertown by Frank Sinatra

    I got the Scout 1.1 and was bad as I ordered a ZYX R-50 Bloom 2 MC to be set up on it upon arrival. Even i am saying ouch on this one. But I feel it will be worth it. All though I spent more than I wanted, this combination still comes in at less than the Classic I really wanted. And it will no doubt be a jump higher than what I have been listening to. Now to find out if my aging ears can tell the difference.

    My Denon DP2000 bit the dust a couple weeks ago. So I just replaced it with a vintage factory sealed NIB Denon DP62L I found on fleabay. I will be moving the MC104 to it today. I also want to dive into a new TT. So far I want a VPI Classic but they are a little more than I am willing to pay. I am biting my nails on pulling the trigger on a used VPI Scout 1.1 that is a steal at 1500. That would give me a vintage decent DD and a modern high end belt drive as my JVC is getting tired.
