How do you play 45 RPM on your Teres?

Or is it recorded at 45 to play at 33 1/3 ?

Rob,

The Teres motor plays at 45 and 33.3 rpm.

"Holding the pushbutton down for more than one second will switch between 33.3 and 45 rpm"

From the Teres Motor Manual 10-Mar-2003


I first heard the Ray Brown Trio - Soular Energy at MAF. Scott from TNT-Audio brought it around to our suite. I was very impressed by the music and the sound.

I heard the other two albums at Chris Brady's place. After one listen I knew I had to have them. They were my first vinyl purchases in over 15 years.

Does anyone have any other suggestions of this quality music and recording?

I also picked up and listened to:

Time Out - Dave Brubeck Quartet  200 gram reissue.
Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon 30th Anniversary Edition Vinyl

I have the Steely Dan - Everything Must Go vinyl on order from Acoustic Sounds

Thanks, I heard that the Teres motor could play at 45 RPM, I just didn't know how.

While you were listening to Scotts Vinyl, Klaus, Maxcast and myself were at the clubs checking the (sucky) local bar scene out.  :wink:

Wayne,
one of my favorite LP's is the Classic Records' 2 LP set of Holly Cole's "Temptation."  I loved the CD when it came out (not surprising since I always had a fondness for Holly and loved the songs of Tom Waits).  Classic made the wise choice of including bonus tracks on the LP's not found on the regular CD.
There's also an LP version of Cole's "Romantically Helpless" which is interesting in that it has a 4 track 45RPM disc of songs heard on the main 33RPM LP---fun to compare 45 vs 33 in terms of sonics  (BTW 45 wins).

Wayne,

If you like Alison Kraus, "New Favorite" is a great album with pretty amazing sonics.

Howlin' Wolf "Chester Burnett AKA Howlin' Wolf" 2L

I've had this a while, but pulled it out last night. Inimitable voice of HW doing all his "hits" from throughout his career"Spoonful," "Red Rooster,"
"Killing Floor," "Back Door Man," "Built For Comfort" and "300 Pounds of Joy."

It ain't White Tiger, but what IS??? :D

Nunslaughter - One Night In Hell
I didn't realize this was a live recording when I bought it, but it was a nice surprise.  I normally avoid live recordings as they usually suck, but this one actually sounds like you're at a show.  It's recorded straight through, very raw, no extra phony crowd noise or any of that crap.  Just the band playing and plenty of vocal banter inbetween, most of which is humorous.  The mix is a bit odd, with the guitars back pretty far and the vocals real loud, but overall I think it really captures a live performance with tons of real ambience.  You can hear the crowd talking back to the band which adds to the realism.

Bathory - Nordland I and II
Quorthon should really let someone else engineer his records as this is kind of nasty.  The first disc is okay, a few decent songs but II went right past me.  Rather dull stuff.  Seems like a half-hearted attempt to throw together past cliches for another Viking album, but it just doesn't work.

Vital Remains - Dawn Of The Apocalypse
Death\Black Metal hybrid here.  Not too bad  I guess.  This features by far the fastest double bass I have ever heard.  I just wonder if it is triggered or what.  Pretty damn amazing.  Killer cover art in any case.  Not so for the back cover, as the pentagram graphic is ultra-pixelated.  Graphic art mistakes just really annoy the hell out of me.  What were they thinking?

Played Holly Cole's "Romantically Helpless" last night.  This never was a fave HC disc for me musically, but I bought the vinyl set just because it's vinyl.  It's interesting for a couple reasons: first, it's on an obscure German label (Grooveland) that has chosen its limited offerings somewhat strangely--Holly, Jimmy Scott's "Mood Indigo," and a Maria Muldaur LP; second, they have the full disc on one 33RPM LP and 4 tracks on a 45RPM LP.   The 45 is stunning sonically.

This was one instance where sonics won me over to the music: as I said, I wasn't crazy about the CD initially but the special appeal of vinyl sonics made me like the music.

jack daugherty and the class of 1971.  then ahmad jamal-rossiter road.  then i looked at the cd booklet and here it says:

"the music on this compact disc was originally recorded on analog equipment. we have ATTEMPTED to preserve, as closely as possible, the sound of the original recording. because of its HIGH RESOLUTION, however, the compact disc can reveal LIMITATIONS of the source tape."
the emphases were mine. i assure you, there is NO disclaimer on the LP jacket, none was EVER needed.

i will recommend the cd on musical merit alone. the vinyl will be much harder to locate. i have only ever seen two

i apologize that this is nearly the same post i put at aa but i had to share this with you all too.  

if you can find this on vinyl, SNAG IT!

I've listened to the following in the last couple days:

Nils Lofgren - Nils : not bad, just tried it out
Montie Alexander - Live :  Excellent recording, very lively, very fun
Radiohead - Kid A :  best modern recording that I like
Jimi Hendrix - Experience (live)  : not the best recording but love hearing him play live, esp the blues
A Perfect Circle - New one :  not bad, but not quite into it like the first alb
Ozzy - Down to Earth  :  I think this one kinda sucks actually
