AXPONA 2019 Second Turntable, Phono Preamp, Cartridge Round Up

By | April 21st, 2019|Categories: Analog planet|

Here’s the second part of AnalogPlanet’s AXPONA 2019 analog coverage. Covering it all required all three show days and did not allow even a minute’s worth of listening. It was all running from room to room. I think I caught everything new introduced at the show other than the debut of the Dynavector DV17dx MC cartridge mounted on the Well Tempered 254 in the Stereo Haven room. The snowstorm forced me to leave the show early on Sunday so I could catch a flight out I was able to get booked on after my original scheduled for 8:30PM was cancelled.

By | April 3rd, 2019|Categories: Analog planet|

Here’s 100 recommended all-analog LP reissues worth owning. The video runs two hours so unless you are masochistic, you might want to watch in shorter segments but covering 100 LPs took time! Plus there are the usual fun stories interspersed throughout. Okay, I got wrong the The Who’s “Tommy”‘s original issue date (I said November ’68, was May ’69) otherwise all of the information should be correct. Yes, too many superlatives, but that’s video!

Son House’s “Father of Folk Blues” Provides A Uniquely Intimate Listening Experience

By | March 28th, 2019|Categories: Analog planet|

Despite recording a handful of legendary Paramount Records sides in 1930, Eddie James “Son” House, Jr. vanished after his rediscovery in August 1941 by Alan Lomax. His recordings gained stature over the ensuing decades, which in 1964 lead Dick Waterman, Nick Perls, and Phil Spiro on a mission to find House. They eventually located him that June in Rochester, New York, approximately 1,000 miles from his origins in the Mississippi Delta.
