Still got my original vinyl Dark Side Of The Moon, scratches and all, heard Us and Them on the radio during lunch break at school and got an advance on my pocket money and bought the album the next day.

Get a new one. They're affordable and they have USB now.

Me too. And my original vinyl recording of Scheherazade, my most favoritest piece of classical music. In fact, I still have about 300 albums, and they've held up very nicely over the years.

I can recommend ION turntables. Their selling point is that they have a USB connection for ripping audio to a computer, but my ION works great as just a turntable. I did need to get an inexpensive little preamp, though.

My local rag reported that Sony is going to bring back vinyl, at least in Japan, for some albums.

I caught the Dark Side of the Moon concert tour of the US twice, once near the beginning and the other time near the end. Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety, complete with the female singers, was the second set. It was magnificent.

CD is dying, vinyl is back. Welcome, 21st century!
What's the result of filtering bands or albums based on your criteria?

Vinyl? Yeah all the pops and scratches and rumble and general track noise, plus getting up every 15 minutes to change the record, and not to mention the decreasing quality of the sound as the track nears the center of the record... I've still got all my LP's from the 60's, 70's and 80's. And my turntables. But I never listen to vinyl now, other than for a nostalgia trip. Well engineered digital music is vastly superior.

And Pink Floyd was all downhill after DSOTM.

Notable covers:
  • Mama Bluegrass Band
  • I think that Bruce Hornsby and Ricky Scaggs worked together on another one, too.

If you want a mind-blowing experience of what music can do in the hands of (two) professionals, check out Bruce Hornsby + Ricky Skaggs' cover of ... Super Freak.

Uh huh, uh huh ... that song ... "she's super freaky," etc. However, what they pulled out of ... "that 'it will never be nothing more than a (million-selling) throw-away novelty song' song ... is quite amazing.

here's a crude video. But they did it much better one year at the RockyGrass Festival.

And how about the Heart sisters perform (Led Zeppelin) Stairway to Heaven for the President at Kennedy Center ... along with a couple hundred of their best friends.

For Pink Floyd lovers: Check Steven Wilson/Porcupine Tree (in case you haven't already). I really love their music.

An excellent sample of Steven Wilson's music: Regret #9.

Porcupine Tree were awesome. Steven Wilson's solo work is a bit slow IMO.

Yeah, I prefer Porcupine Tree, but Steven Wilson still has some good tracks.

You are completely right. I still have the vinil to play. That's indeed something exceptional, no comparison with anything.
The sound is amazing.

EDIT: Try this one !! Dark Side of the Moon, https://archive.org/details/DSOTM
Do you have maybe more archives.org to add to GOAT MUSIC (need ncurses + CC)?
