Christmas 2014, Pt.1

We spend the holidays at our parental units’ places, so we try to do Christmas a little early at our house. We chose this morning (Sunday) to start the festivities!

So first up is the generosity and awesomeness of James. I have said this many times in these pages (and out), but James is the man. He knows it, but he’s usually all humble about it.

This year he sent me something old and something new for Christmas, and something for my lovely wife as well!

james is awesome

Look at all the vinyl majesty!

1) Jack White – Lazaretto. Yep, this is gorgeous release with all three speeds on the same slab. The LP is 33 1/3, and under the label on one side you get a track in 45, and on the other, a track in 78. I’ve already reviewed this record on this site, and I can tell you right now I think this one was built to be heard on vinyl. That White made it such an awesome and creative release just makes it that much sweeter. SO. AWESOME.

2) Def Leppard – Pyromania. Yep, the old school vinyl from the 80s. This is gonna be A LOT of fun to spin. I mean, having it on CD is one thing, but an old original vinyl? Sweetness!

3) Leonard Cohen – Popular Problems. This is my lovely wife’s gift this year. Leonard on vinyl? Oh hells yes, yessir! It’s a great album, and so exciting to see Leonard enjoying this later-life ressurgence. I’ll bet this sounds gorgeous and warm. And it comes with the full album on CD tipped in!

James. You really are the man. Thank you! ThankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouTHANKYOU!

    • I think it really is! I’m gonna clean it before I play it. I see a couple of little spots that may be spots or just something that will wipe off with cleaning. But they’re so little it’s not even a concern. I’m sure I could drop the needle right now, without cleaning it, and find it’s just fine!
