Rediscovering music through (old) technology

Due to a variety of circumstances my turntable had been unused for a year or more, and due to a different variety of circustances I decided to set it back up in my office and get all of my vinyl out in plain view.

This has caused me to listen to things that I haven’t heard in quite some time. Stuff that I never bought on CD because I had the vinyl, but never listened to because the vinyl was hidden away.

A couple of gems that I’ve rediscovered in the process:

Money Jungle Cover

This album proves the theory that good musicians will make good music in pretty much whatever situation they end up in.

Dig Cover

Miles , still in bebop mode, with Sonny Rollins and Jackie McLean. This reminds me why I like primary source material.
