The album that put Rod Stewart on the map was one of the all-time great albums. I still listen to it in near amazement. Jeff Beck's "Truth". I heard a radio interview with Rod Stewart when he came out withhis jazz album. He was asked who the best guitarist he had worked with was. Stewart corrected the interviewer. The best "musician" he had ever worked with was Jeff Beck.

It's quite easy on the ears, acceptable background music for about any party. I don't like licorice but I like things that divide a crowd, but for me it comes across as a nice but rather bland cookie that some people love it a lot because of nostalgia and personal memories.
I don't like licorice, either. Nostalgia and personal memories are probably part of the current deadhead mentality, but for some of us, the musical evolution of the performances is also an interesting part of it. For some, the music both filters and focuses the spiritual, emotional and philosophical aspects of life, while for others, they just like dancing to a groovy jam.

Apologies to starbiker for semi derailing his thread. But dang it all, he went and put Wake Of The Flood, another (almost) excellent Grateful Dead studio album, in the Crap CD Collection. I'll grant that it's flawed, but it debuted some great tunes that are among the band's most creative stuff.

For the record I really disliked dead heads when I was younger. The following them around made little sense to me either. But as I have gotten older I do like their music.
Depending on how old you are you were into new wave, and punk, or more into late 60's, early 70's classic rock. I was, and still am a classic rock fan. But my tastes are much broader with classical, and jazz.
Still, the crappy comment has been a gag since I started this thread, and some of you did not get it.

Another crappy one from today. The pickins have been slim lately. Still sealed. Funny, I found this same record at the same junk shop in the Spring scratched. Now I find it sealed.
You can listen to it on Youtube.
One thing that baffles me is they put this neat woodcut like image on the cover of an Indian in a canoe in New York Harbor, and then put these half ass pictures of themselves right above it. Who thinks this stuff up.......

Those are very crappy. Those are the kinds of pressings the junk shop buyers usually buy when there is nothing else in the pile, but they have to have some records.
There was this kid 10 days ago I was trying to convince to not waste his money. I have seen him before rarely and he is always looking stuff up on his phone. He was buying worthless classical 78's when he realized the other stuff he was buying was worthless.
The wacky world of thrifts......
Check out the Mercury pressing of Firebird, and make sure if you ever find it it's in stereo. The mono copy is worthless.
Turnabout label classical records are worthless. It's the Avant stuff the label released, and even it has limited value.

that iabd is one of my favourite albums…if you love the album and ever see a mint speakers corner re-issue (pallas pressed/analog mastered) and your system does deep bass and searing violin well it will give you a BIG

Just get on discogs on pick up a copy. It is a cool record. Just not worth much. I think a lot of that Columbia late 60's oddball stuff is undervalued. Is what it is.

but that’s not the speakers corner re-issue. according to popsike the last one sold on eBay was in 2015 for $35 (none are listed at the moment) which was a good price for it then. they are now hard to find as most have kept it. i'm probably more interested in pressing, analog mastering and condition quality than most though.....
