THE LEGAL DIVA'S VINYL HAUL



My Lady went vinyl shopping. She's amazing. This is what she got:



Stadium Arcadium - Red Hot Chili Peppers




This unbelievable vinyl package of a well loved and oft blogged about record consists of 4 discs - eight sides of the most fantastic Rock music to be released since the turn of the millennium.......and then some. Frusciante is a genius, and a Rock Star, two things lacking in modern music. The choice to issue 4 discs (4 180 gram vinyl discs) says a lot about the respect that the Chilis have for music, and their fans. You will not be able to hear this album in any superior medium or format. It is simply the best sounding release, uh........ever. Really. The packaging is beautiful and of the highest quality. I simply can't go too far in hurling superlatives at this release. I love it. I'm in awe of it. Everyone should buy it.


Like a Virgin - Madonna


Rufus Featuring Chaka Khan - Rufus Featuring Chaka Khan


Touch - Eurythmics


Live and Uncensored - Millie Jackson





All the Great Hits - Diana Ross

Anthology - Diana Ross and the Supremes


Promise - Sade





The Best Of - Dinah Washington

Greatest Hits - Commodores




First Take - Roberta Flack




Roberta Flack and Donnie Hathaway - Roberta Flack and Donnie Hathaway



*Seven and the Ragged Tiger - Duran Duran

* We already have this one....the new copy needs a good home.

nice haul

re: 180 gram

the last two records i got on vinyl, Ben Kweller's Changing Horses and the new self titled Wilco record, both came on 180 grams

seems like that's what the new standard is
 
Yeah, and it's a great thing. It's like vinyl is back and better than ever.
 
That Rufus record looks good, what's it got on it?
