Default Finding the Classics

I’m sure many of you know this, but I’m discovering how to buy the classics via a street wise approach, meaning self discovery.

Discogs appears to be a go to source offering information to qualify sought after purchases, needed for local and internet scavenge hunts

In this case, I am after some Stones albums, and realize recording wasn’t there forte, like many of the bands.

The fine print below in the screen shot related to engravings is what I was after, and the record I bought is a exact match.

In the record cleaning machine it went for a double cycle.

This a U.K. pressing, top opening, with a zipper. Albeit, it is tarnished and I need to figure out how to clean it so it functions.

Trivia - Little Joe, best known from Lou Reeds Walk on the Wild Side was a part of Andy Warhols circa and modeled for the record photo shoot. The Stones at this point were fueled by sex, drugs and rock and roll!

Playing this makes me grin ear to ear, and I will bet that enjoyment will expand when my new table gets here.

This album came out in April of ‘71, and I was 1.5 years old, so I can say I’m older then this record.

Sound quality is very acceptable, a few low level pops and clicks scattered in 3 areas, nothing to cringe as it’s every description of analog to the highest level.

The Rolling Stones - Exile on Main Street - Abbey Roads Half Speed Remaster

With the U-Turn Orbit Special, Ortofon Blue 2M (MM) playing as the source, I am really digging this - a safe buy!

Half Mastered by Abbey Road Studios, Pressed in Germany under Polydor.

If you can try to track down an original Exile cut by Artisan. It will have a logo etched into the inner groove that looks like the below.
