Alright, about a week ago I got a new to me, very nice stereo.

There's a vintage Harmon Kardon a500 amp, and a pair of polk s15 speakers, hooked up to a new (and decidedly mediocre) audio technica LP-60.

I have a new table on the way, but until that time, this will get the job done.

The amp does it's job, and has a big warm sound.

The speakers have enough bottom end to rattle the windows, without being boomy. They're actually really open and natural sounding.

Basically every night since then, I've listened to one or more records in their entirety.

I started with Chet Baker, followed by The Beatles. Pepper and Abbey Road. I did a thread about that on my other account: retro.social/@ajroach42/106129

Since then, I've listened to The 13th floor elevators (psychadelic sounds of and Bull of the Woods), Thee American Revolution (self titled, from the giuy from The Apples in Stereo, but Crunchy), the first Alabama Shakes album (it *does the thing*) and several blues records.

Tonight, I think I'm going to go for Tangerine Zoo.

I changed my mind! Behind Tangerine Zoo (Which I love) was Miles Davis' Jack Johnson (which is one of my top 10 albums of all time.)

So I'm listening to Miles Davis' Jack Johnson.

Here's a thread I wrote about that album in may of 2017, because time is flat, and I listen to Miles Davis in the spring.

and here's a Long thread about free media, which includes an aside about Jack Johnson: retro.social/@ajroach42/993842

I told the whole story at one point, but I can't find that.

Anyway, this record is an absolute jam and three quarters.
