Bonnie
Puccini: Madama Butterfly / Leinsdorf, Moffo, Valletti, Elias is playing as I write. Moffo is superb as always but you are spot on with Valletti. He is perfect for the role - the insouciance and thoughtlessness of youth. He is the kind of tenor I most enjoy - with plenty of light and shade. In the first act, his charm, gaiety and carelessness are spilling out of his voice. I can't find any mention that he actually performed the role on stage but I'm sure he would have been excellent. I think I am now going to have to buy his recording of La Traviata with Maria Callas as I'm sure he will be a perfect Alfredo. Thank you again for leading me to this lovely tenor who was hitherto unknown to me.

There are many used stores popping up around the city I live. You may have to accept some snaps and pops if you go that route. Many of these stores here will let you listen to it before you buy, which is good. Also try oldies.com, stuff is cheaper there. Amazon has a great return policy, but, you will pay more for some things there. Good luck!

Thanks for the reccomendations, man! I really wish there were more record stores where I live. The best I've got is F.Y.E. and, while they have a great selection, they are ridiculously overpriced. Thanks again!

My pleasure. I have bought a bunch of albums lately. Enjoying the rich full 3D sound that I had missed for so many years before LP's started making a comeback!

RE LPs- where to buy them. lotsa good stuff on eBay for cheap. Check the seller's feedback rating both for happy customers and number of sales. When you find a few that you deal with that did you right, remember them because you will likely continue to get good product and service from them. Buy quantity and negotiate combined shipping.

If all else fails, use the "shopping" feature of Google or any browser that has a feature. Sort by price.

Goodwill, Salvation Army, and other such charitable organizations that have store fronts are great sources as well. Often people will 'inherit' entire collections of LPs they are unsure what to do with so they donate them all. Watch local want ads. (I found a guy once who was actually selling pallets of records with 500 or so LPs per skid priced at between $20 to $30 per skid.

Price shop! If you encounter any supposed 'rare', original release, or out of print copies make sure you know what you are getting. Many LPs have had multiple re-releases. The Internet and music forums can help you figure out what's what there. People often have things they believe are rare and valuable and they are neither. Usually, they just don't know and many think old = rare = valuable. There ARE definitely valuable records from true rare releases to audiophile recordings. No need to break the bank if you are interested in the music more than a particular release or issue of a record.

On the equipment side, I recommend a tube buffer type device to add to the output of a CD player. These connect by plugging the CD unit into them and then connecting the output to where the CD player plugged in on your pre-amp/amp/receiver. These devices don't add and gain or volume to the signal but simply process the signal through vacuum tubes 'warming' up the sound. You won't mistake it for an LP but it does make the CD sound better. Also, if you do shop for tube gear (Class A or Class A-B), don't get too hung up and what appear to be low power output of those beasts. Class A is the least efficient way to reproduce a signal meaning lots of power is needed to amplify a signal and a lot of power goes to heat. Tubes require warm up times to get to correct operating temperature, especially the 'good stuff'. Bear in mind there is a certain almost ritual involved with using tube gear. The stuff emits heat. It can be finicky and costly to repair. However, there are a lot of solid state/tube hybrids. A place I recommend for window shopping and pricing is audioadvisor.com to get an idea of what's out there and how much you can spend. Always price shop anything that catches your fancy.

As word of caution: Beware all the snake oil and miracle gizmos that populate the world of high-end audio along with some insane prices on cords and cables. There are those who will defend the purchase of a $1500.00 1 meter patch cord and their $30 a foot 'directional' speaker wire with a passion usually reserved for defending one's family honor. Use common sense.

Beach Boys - Smiley Smile. I actually prefer the version of "Wonderful" on this one to the one on BWPS or SMiLE Sessions. The arrangement really attenuates what actually is a very creepy song.

Hello, Valerie. I was fortunate in getting a copy of 'Working Man's cafe' free with a Daily Mail
promotion awhile back. Nice album, enjoy. Happy days to you.
PS. Wishbone Ash are my favourite band of all time. Recently, I had a box of original 'Ash'
vinyls nicked from my flat. I'm not a happy bunny right now!
