We’re spinning some Nina Simone tonight to honor her birthday but honestly....I don’t need an excuse to play her records. Her music is spectacular, truly a talented artist. Whether she’s singing or playing the piano her sound is all her own. I was thrilled to hear she’s being inducted into the #RockNRollHallOfFame. #itsaboutime 🤓 #NowSpinning#NinaSimone#ForbiddenFruit on 180 gram green vinyl. #jazz
“Killing Machine” by Judas Priest from 1978. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Great album from a band who were the very essence of British heavy metal at the time. There was a change of style from their earlier albums and not every fan appreciated that as I remember. It can’t be argued though that this became the template for much of the success that was to follow in the next few years.
Halford’s voice was fantastic when they were at their peak but this post is dedicated to Glen Tipton who I understand is having to change his role in the band somewhat due to health issues. Sad to hear as I’ve seen them live in recent years and they still deliver a great show.
#secondhandrecords Last one (other than a UK hip-hop 12” that I bought for nothing and will be likely be heading back towards Europe for 50 euros plus fairly shortly) from the recent Melbourne trip. Three of my absolute, all-time heroes (DJ Shadow, Madlib and J Rocc) are worth the price of admission alone for the second instalment of Up Above Records ‘Keepintime’ 12” series. It’s very of it’s time (2004), which means really - it’s very much my cup of tea. (Lo-fi, glitchy, booming indie hip-hop, y’know - the good stuff). Does the fact that this is part of a series mean that I might feel an almost pathological urge to find the other releases in the series? I think we know the answer to that question. #hiphopvinyl#recordcollection#recordcollector#vinylcollection#vinylrecords
