Whats on your turntable tonight?

For me its the first or very early LP's of:
Allman Brothers - "Allman Joys" "Idyllwild South"
Santana - "Santana" 200 g reissue
Emerson Lake and Palmer - "Emerson Lake and Palmer"
Beethoven - "Piano Concerto No. 4 in G Major" Rudolph Serkin/Ozawa/BSO
Going to continue with my Szell/Cleveland selections this evening. Next up:

Szell conducts Schumann - The Four Schumann Symphonies. The Cleveland Orchestra. Columbia/Odyssey 3LP box, 1971

In other news, Jim Hagerman emailed me notifying that the Hagerman Trumpet is being shipped today...oh, the wait...trying to be patient 
@bkeske That’s exciting for you Brian. It took me a long time to learn how important a phono stage is. Sounds like you’re getting a good one.


Anton Bruckner
Symphonie No. 5
Solti-Edition Vol.9

this finally arrived today from Berlin after a 3+ month wait. Wow does it sound good though. Pristine vinyl and a spectacular recording. Wonderfully dynamic, clear and bright. I’m sitting on the stage in front of the Violas.
Maazel conducts Tchaikovsky #4. The Cleveland Orchestra. Telarc 1979

Thanks James, just got notified it will be here next Tuesday. 11 day turn around from ordering. Not too bad, especially coming from Honolulu. Yes, the phono stage was my last piece to the phono rig. The Mani with LPS has done its job nicely, but I have a feeling it will be, (as it was when I put together the SOTA/Jelco/Soundsmith), like playing my albums for the first time. Again.
Back in ‘77, I home-auditioned a small pair of KLH speakers. They had a promo where they sent you home also with a Sheffield Lab record (SL13/KLH)

It was Amanda McBroom vocals with Lincoln Mayorga, Doug Sax and that crew  

Stunning all around. 

Solti-Edition Vol.9

Fantastic. I have Volumes 6 & 10, and have my eyes peeled constantly for 8 & 9.
