And so here we are again… Let’s cut to the chase, shall we?
I did a good thing last weekend. I bought new shoes for my babies. It’s amazing what a fresh needle does for a record. It’s like night and day, and I’ll never play my records with anything but Stanton cartridges and needles (there, free advertising. What’s wrong with that)… so what better way to break ‘em in than by playing some 45’s. Well, I have been listening to this batch I made about a week ago non-stop, and all I can say is yum… It’s all about the flow here. I really hope you like it.
