PRODIGY - st LP 86
REPOST w NEW BETTER RIP: Thanks to Dea Noa for calling me out on the first rip...sometimes I am a neatness freak and end up cutting out even small nicks and pops. So I re-did the rip last night with pop noise lever higher to capture more and only cutting out just a few of the largest pops. I also happen to have a new Stanton stylus tip that I just learned works on my Ortofon S-120 cartridge(hope I don't have the terms backwards) to really 'cut' into the groove past the nicks. Sounds good to me. This St. Pete band sounds a bit like T.S.O.L. 'Beneath The Shadows" album a little. I think I could retire just singing the songs "Dreams Are Free" and 'Go With The Flow' with other similar tunes by T.S.O.L., Shock Therapy (the singer sounds a bit like them) and others and be happy. Hell, they sound just like the oughts/tens band THE BUSY SIGNALS who I have posted from our old scene.
