VA - K-TEL presents The Beat LP 82
Ahh what a great find (good 80s K-Tel comp's are rare and beat up not new like this) during the elbow to elbow combat shopping at the Planet Retro dollar sale a couple weeks ago. It was a legacy collection from old downtown emporium record store used to be in Sarasota and owner recently passed away as I was in the new sponsor store and I heard this from someone with the estate there so I gave him the record store name to sell to. Contains: A Flock Of Seagulls, Kim Wilde, Haircut One Hundred, Sparks, Split Enz, Graham Parker, The Waitresses (rare 'Sucker!' version), Go-Go's (when are they gonna get in the R'n'R HOF!!), Duran Duran, Thompson Twins, Depeche Mode, OMD and Billy Idol (I thought the Boss did this song - Hot in the City!):
ON A SIDE NOTE: I took down links from last week of Tribes, Free Creek comp and Thjis van Leer Introspections I and II (only got a 2 of 6 rating anyways--all classical) due to quality. I have vowed never to mix a Stanton tip with my Ortofon stylus base cartridge as the needle doesn't hit the groove as good especially when my pre-amp recording level is too low. You see my pre-amp has two level adjusts with a rotary potentiometer (I went below my normal the minimum of 60%) and slide lever fine adjust. When signal is so weak it just turns to static (don't worry it didn't wreck you speakers!).
Will be back this afternoon for a very special 4th of July movie post!!!
