Well, hot damn. Got my new old turntable
hooked up last night and spent the evening enjoying it tremendously. First up was the album that inspired the whole thing (and, a long time ago in a galazy far, far away, this thread), Wilco (The Album) - I have to listen to it more, but already it's easily my favorite since YHF, and of course, I prefer the relatively upbeat A side to the beautiful but more chill B side.
Then I listened to most of the Dandys' 13 Tales
for its sonic breadth and some select tracks on The Mountain Goats' Tallahassee
. In a nod to DP's college days, I also picked up a very good looking copy of the Quadrophenia
soundtrack, but didn't have a chance to play it last night.
Anyway, thanks a million, Sab - I'm really bummed we didn't even get to say hi (I was in an emergency meeting helping explain why a client's sites were down for over an hour yesterday morning), but am loving the deck so far.
