Here's a few that I have and love

Dave Matthews Band - Crash: All analog master and cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering and pressed at MPO. Some bias, because I'm the resident DMB fan on r/vinyl, but this is a perfect release and what every band should model anniversary vinyl releases after. If Radiohead had done this with OK Computer, it would have been 1000x better; missed chance. Anyways, this is a must have for any DMB fan. $30 on Amazon

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood Sugar Sex Magik: All analog cut. Not sure if Bellman did this or Grundman himself, but it was cut at BGM. Maybe one of the best sounding remastered albums in my collection. It's extremely detailed and "revealing". Definitely recommend picking this up, both on the quality and the music itself - one of the best albums of the early 90's. $30 on Amazon

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Stadium Arcadium: Another all analog mastering and cut RHCP album, this one by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray. All versions (original, deluxe, and reissue) use the same stampers. It's a rarity that a 2006 album was recorded analog, so it's wonderful they kept the vinyl AAA. Full bass, and a really detailed high end. Highly recommend if you're into the band, it's a steal at $33 for a 4xLP

Nirvana - In Utero: Released for the album's 20th anniversary, this was a direct metal mastering and cut that used the albums original cut and contains a bonus disc featuring alternate mixes. There was also a version released in 2013 with all alternative mixes and was also all analog. Both are great and fully dynamic, though I prefer the original mix. Whichever mix you prefer, go with that version, you won't be let down.
$50 shipped (lowest available) for the 20th Anniversary release | $25 for the 2013 mix thru Walmart

Nirvana - Nevermind: Bernie Grundman mastered this one himself, and keeping with the theme from above this is all analog as well. Maybe the best album of the 90's, this is (in my opinion) the ultimate version of it. This master was released by ORG in 2009, but it was released again from the Geffen label using the same stamper in 2013 and pressed at Pallas. $24 on Amazon

Van Morrison - Moondance: This is the 2008 release, mastered and cut analog by Steve Hoffman & Kevin Gray at Acoustech and pressed at RTI. There's a really good discussion about this remaster and specifically the mix of Into the Mystic over at the Steve Hoffman Forums. $18 on Amazon

Phish - Junta/A Picture of Nectar/Lawn Boy/Rift/Hoist: All of these Phish albums are fan-freaking-tastic sounding. Bellman did them all at BGM and used all analog sources and cuts for each, minus Rift which was cut from hi-res digital files. All can be found at Phish Dry Goods for $50 each. A bit pricey but well worth it IMO!

The Beatles - 2014 Mono Remasters: If you want the ultimate, most true to the original, Beatles releases; this is what you want. These are all analog and do everything to mimic the UK first press releases. There's always good debate about Mono/Stereo for The Beatles, but there's no debate that these are top notch releases. You can buy the whole box for ~$350 or each release individually for $15-$25 each if you search for each on Amazon

There's really an endless amount of good, affordable, new records with great sound. Check out Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab (MoFi/MFSL), Analogue Productions, Analog Spark, Music Matters, among others. MOV also does great work, though they generally use hi-res digital rather than tape to cut from. Also, look for the mastering engineers I mentioned above - Chris Bellman, Bernie Grundman, Steve Hoffman; plus Kevin Gray, Scott Hull, among others

u/blackseat · 20 pointsr/Disneyland

It's a pretty spendy set, but A Musical History of Disneyland has a pretty good selection of park ride-through soundtracks including the Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, and much more! It came out for the 50th anniversary, and its a very cool set. Just pretty expensive at this point, since its such a great collector piece.

Aside from something like this, there are some good Youtube channels who post ride audio, so you could try searching on there. One good one I know of is Mr.ThemeParksAudio. There is also this one which has some good area music loops. Also, SuperHotLarry posts some great audio as well, if I remember right, he's even a reddit user and has been active on this sub before. If you needed physical copies, you could always try to message the people who run these channel, and perhaps they may be willing to give you a copy, but I'm not 100% sure.

Maybe Yes, Maybe No (LINK)

by Dan Barker

In today's media-flooded world, there is no way to control all of the information, claims, and enticements that reach young people. The best thing to do is arm them with the sword of critical thinking.

Maybe Yes, Maybe No is a charming introduction to self-confidence and self-reliance. The book's ten-year-old heroine, Andrea, is always asking questions because she knows "you should prove the truth of a strange story before you believe it."

"Check it out. Repeat the experiment. Try to prove it wrong. It has to make sense." writes Barker, as he assures young readers that they are fully capable of figuring out what to believe, and of knowing when there just isn't enough information to decide. "You can do it your own way. If you are a good skeptic you will know how to think for yourself."

Another book is "Me & Dog" by Gene Weingarten.

Great question!

Rocksmith is ok. I have it, but it, like any lesson plan, is dependent on the player's dedication, and the game seems to fudge enough to make you feel like you're doing great when you know you screwed things up (that's my experience, anyway).

Scott's Bass Lessons is the bass player's equivalent of Justin's lessons, plus some. It's not free, but it is worth it. Plus, a ton of content can be found outside the pay model - make YouTube your friend.

A free resource - started just this month - is Andy Irvine's Daily Funk Club. Andy's a great guy and good teacher. Lots of energy there.

Also, for inspiration alone, get him Victor Wooten's dvd "Groove Workshop" (also at Amazon) and his book (or audiobook - or both!) "The Music Lesson."

Welcome to the bass!

I would love the Frozen DVD because I would actually give it to my little sister. She'll be 5 tomorrow and I can't tell you how much money I spent taking her to see it in the theatre. If you haven't seen it with a kid whose animated your missing out it's so much fun to watch her song and dance and ha the first time we saw it in the theatre and Olaf came on screen for the first time she shouts out "I love you OLAFY" cutest thing ever but since I'm super quiet I sank down in my seat lol hoping people wouldn't notice.

Anyways I would love to be able to watch it with my munchkin. :-)

Thanks for the contest!!

u/Pepperkin · 16 pointsr/bonnaroo

as we’ve seen many times now, ONCE upon a time, it would take hours for YOU to GET the answer to the clue, but that was the PAST. this is now, and miraculously, i am awake, alive, and finally well-fed enough to get the clue more or less early this time, all while off THE FLOOR!

as we all certainly know (and if you didn’t, you could certainly PULL the information online), twenty one pilots comes from the beautiful city of columbus, ohio. ohio might be on the ROPEs when it comes to good weather, but you know what town columbus is hotter than? if you guessed columbus, michigan, you are IN THE right! if you’re in a ROOM WITH A good internet connection (unlike me), don’t be a lame DUCK and check out the forecasts for the two cities (ohio michigan today. like a well produced PAINTING, the answers can be all seen on their own.

YOU WILL be wondering, THEN, how does the second part of the clue HAVE TO APPLY here, then? put SOME PRESSURE onto THE LEFT SIDE of your brain here! what group only has two people? sure, there are many, but only one where letting a third one in between the WALLs of their space would be inconceivable - and that group, is twenty one pilots. #confirmed, yet again. please be sure to buy twenty one pilots merchandise wherever you are, including Amazon Canada, Amazon Germany, and Amazon China! thank you all very much, and remember - IT’S NOT TOO LATE to team along with me and solve the mystery about how each clue points to twenty one pilots, signed to fueled by ramen records, every other day here on reddit.com!

u/SuddenStorm1234 · 7 pointsr/Disneyland

Here's a dump:

http://disneychris.com/ has tons of park audio bits. Website is horribly set up, but the music is good (most is at 128 mbps though, so quality is limited).

http://www.soundsofdisneyland.com/ has a lot of good music as well.

http://community.magicmusic.net/ has lots of good discussion on which tracks are used as background music in the various lands. The folks on here are good at what they do, and it's amazing how many tracks are available for purchase online.

There are a couple "holy grails" for park audio collectors. The first is the 50th anniversary music release:

The other is the "Disneyland Forever" audio collection. In the late 90's, they had kiosks around the park where you could purchase various bits of park audio and make custom CD's. There's a torrent around (won't link here) that has compiled all of the artwork and audio from these kiosks, as most of the tracks aren't available for the public. It has tons of area music, ride throughs for past attractions, etc.

Mousebits.com is where fans share in park induction recordings, and past audio that Disney doesn't currently sell.

With any given track, there are usually different versions you can get- that vary in length and audio quality.

u/phnx0221 · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

Oh! One more thing.... They Might Be Giants has put out three awesome kids albums! When my daughter was little, we listened to "Here Come the ABC's" so many freaking times, and we never got sick of it! They have super cute DVD's to accompany them too.

Anyway, the reason why I bring this up, is because they have an album for kids and toddlers called "Here Comes The Science!". It's all about elements, planets, experiments, gases, photosynthesis, and more. It's one of my favorite things ever.

Here's a link to it on Amazon, but honestly, you should just look it up on Youtube. Then you can decide if you want to get to the DVD or not, or if you just want to keep listening to it on Youtube. It's SO cool. :)

u/kittehmew · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Twenty One Pilots <3 LOVE THIS BAND. Get their entire album, it's all amazing.

Good songs:

House of Gold w/ Lyrics

Migraine w/ Lyrics

Holding Onto You w/ Lyrics

Ode to Sleep w/ Lyrics

Honestly, just any of their songs are amazing and they flow so well, and they have so many different ones. House of Gold is different from the normal, but totally amazing. And it's just two amazing dudes. <3

I don't know for sure, but My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was pressed as a beautiful 3LP set that was only sold for $23, so I'd say there's a good chance he'll put it out on vinyl and for a fair price, unlike the recent trend of Daft Punk and MBV albums being $35+

u/DrunkHouseWife · 2 pointsr/atheism

My kids (4 and 5 yrs old) love these videos! You can watch them on YouTube if you want to check them out before you buy. It's a fun way to help them understand complicated things like how our cardiovascular system works or what elements are. There are fun songs about planets and dinosaurs... We love them all. We have them on our iPod too, for long car rides.

u/StringOfLights · 1 pointr/WTF

I had never heard of Dinosaur Train, but it looks adorable. Way to go, PBS!

Does your toddler like Here Comes Science by They Might Be Giants? This is clearly the best song on the album.

u/creede73 · 6 pointsr/Bass


>What is a good groove bpm?

There isn't a single reasonable tempo (40-220, maybe) where you can't groove. It takes good note placement to groove, and you can have good note placement at any tempo.

Second, you would be doing yourself a huge favor by looking up Scott's Bass Lessons and watching his videos on groove, as well as Victor Wooten's Groove Workshop.

Third, you won't be able to create any type of groove if you don't have good timing or if you don't know how to play different note values.

Firstly he listened to musics of Linkin Park, but later he started listening to electronic music, essentially to trance music, due to the musics of tiesto. It was not till 2004 that he found his love for Progressive House music. He listened to the musics and mixes of well-known DJ’s and he soon started Djing. His interest in remixing and producing music has greatly increased through time. (more on last.fm)|

Science lover here. It seems to me that teaching the method of science is probably more important than teaching the facts. Understanding the method of science would allow one to rediscover all the facts. To that end, at our house we spend most of our science time focused on the method, and that doesn't require much of a curriculum. We came up with a simple little phrase that defines the method at its simplest and most basic

  • observation

  • hypothesis

  • experiment

  • analysis

    Observation is at the front because you have to notice things before you can figure out why the things are that way. Observation naturally leads to the next step. As an example, the other day I noticed that our faucet didn't seem to deliver water as vigorously as it used to. So we got together, observed the stream, and talked about various hypotheses. We decided to test one - that there was a blockage in the trap at the very tip of the faucet. So we did an experiment on our hypothesis. We took the little plastic filter/trap thingy out and dropped it in vinegar, and let it sit. After several minutes, we replaced it and did our analysis by turning on the water. It turned out our experiment confirmed that our hypothesis was correct and explained our observations. The water ran much better.

    Focusing on the method allows the learners to really come to understand the strengths and limits of science. And once you start making an effort to notice that, you will see that you are doing small science experiments daily just as part of your life.

    As for a scientific curriculum, I can't really help too much, other than to recommend the album Here Comes Science by They Might Be Giants, and Kerbal Space Program for teaching realistic rocket science and orbital mechanics in an unbelievably fun way.
u/STUN_Runner · 1 pointr/atheism

>...she only holds on to it because she is afraid of the concept of no God.

Okay, she needs this:

Julia Sweeney's double-album Letting Go of God.

The way you're describing what your mother is going through sounds exactly like what Julia Sweeney went through on her path to atheism.

Letting Go of God is filled with humor and humanity, and Sweeney really makes a strong, passionate case in favor of a rational, scientific worldview that's filled with wonder, surprise, and joy.

Someone took the trouble of transcribing the entire thing and posting it online as text. Have a look at it and you'll see what I mean.

u/Kinetic_Static · 1 pointr/musictheory

So to a beginner bassist I would recommend two different study materials.

First buy this DVD, Groove Workshop. It's basically a lecture with exercises on the different components of music as it relates to the bass. One of the largest take-aways is that the notes you play are WAY less important than how you play them. They don't have the clip on youtube, but here is him doing something similar live. On the DVD it's just incredibly well done. He lists all the notes in a G major scale, then only plays the "wrong notes" (notes not in the scale) as Wellington lays down a chordal pattern in G. He then switches to playing in G major and the moment he does this, the G major sounds terrible. When he was playing out of key it was aesthetically pleasing, but when he switches to in key he changes how he's playing and it sounds more discordant.

Second, buy this book on building walking basslines. It's a great introduction to walking bass lines. The point here isn't to remember the notes, but rather the patterns and the feel of "walking".

But for more immediate tips do this. Play the root on the kick, the 5th on the snare, and embellish with the octave and 7th in time with the drummer's fills. You can move up to the 5th by hitting the 4th and down from the 7th with stops along the way at the 6th and the 3rd. If you really want to outline the chords play the root 3rd 5th, but be warned this sounds tired very fast.

The above is just my opinion and is provided merely as a quick outline to start getting the feel of moving around a chord.

u/SteakWay · 2 pointsr/beatles

I have a torrent of Dr. Ebbetts and another rip from a guy who calls himself Dr. Robert. I have listened to them and they sound good. Honestly though if I went with an entire vinyl collection I'd go with the new mono releases. I listen to stereo for comfort but I'd definitely want to listen to mono if I wanted to sit down and listen to vinyl. The new releases are pure rips off of the original masters so they are the best and highest of quality of what the Beatles wanted.


u/bayernownz1995 · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Should I get a record player? I feel like vinyl records are really cool but I don't wanna regret this in a month or two.

I've also been drooling over this. It's an awesome tribute to one of my favorite albums but I feel like it would be pointless if I don't have a record player.

u/HopelessSemantic · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

My favorite Disney movie is Frozen. I love it because it's one of the few movies that has strong female characters who manage to save themselves rather than needing a prince to do it for them. It's refreshing to see women who aren't the helpless victim or the villain. Both Anna and Elsa grow so much as people throughout the movie, and I think it's important for young girls to see women who can overcome obstacles and learn from their mistakes. It's very different from what many of us saw while growing up.

Also, the songs are super awesome.

Someone already suggested Frozen for your wishlist, so how about the Frozen soundtrack? I seriously love this freaking movie.

If I win, I'd really like a gift card since I'm saving up for things, but if that's not an option, this pretty hair clip would be nice!

I have never been to Disney world :(

This song was on an episode of Lost, and I had to track it down and download it. It's an old, old song that makes me that cult-level of calmness and peace and happy. Like, people about to drink the kool-aid calm.


Edit: Funny true story; I totally made my kids sing If You're Happy and You Know It today during our reading of The Hunger Games because they were all reading with their heads down and I couldn't tell if they were sleeping or not. The more we sang, the more annoyed they became, but the more the heads began to pop up.

I get that entirely. Last time I checked, the mono box set on US Amazon was $100 for CD alone, and even worse for vinyl collectors. I haven't even seen one copy of the mono CD's anywhere, and I've even drove around my area looking.

That said, it definitely seems like the 2017 master of Pepper is looking like an actually perfect remix. If they restore the mono She's Leaving Home pitch and fix some minor effects the stereo screwed up from the original like the absence of some Reprise crowd SFX, Good Morning transition, etc, it might be my favorite version of the album.

u/HaiKarate · 1 pointr/TrueAtheism

I would suggest The Book of Genesis Illustrated by R. Crumb. Robert Crumb was an underground comix (with an "x") artist who became popular in the 60's, because he was very counter-culture. It's not an atheist book; in fact, I think Crumb intended it to be some sort of homage to the Bible. But, whereas every other illustrated Bible has sought to polish the stories through their imagery, Crumb presents a very gritty, "warts and all" type of work, and it can be a little jarring at times. Intelligent folks will get the message loud and clear, though, how bizarre the Old Testament really is.

Lighter fare is Julia Sweeney's Letting Go of God. Sweeney is a former SNL comedian, and this comes from her one-person show of the same name. It's funny stuff, and it shows how so many Christians have just glossed over the history of the faith without thinking critically about it. It's also available on YouTube.

u/klaviersonic · 2 pointsr/musictheory

This is an interesting question, and I think illustrates a certain bias in the thought process of music educators in the west more than anything. Far from being unquantifiable, rhythm and melody have been studied very deliberately in India, Africa, and the Middle-East, in the much the same manner as we study harmony so intensively. Indian music in particular, is very precise in its quantifying of tala (rhythmic cycles/time) and raga (melodic patterns and modes), with hundreds of specific varieties of each, and a complex system for deriving meaning from them. In some ways this is the major differentiator in musical thinking between east/west, harmonic thinking tends to demand so much attention that it steals the focus from other more immediate elements of musical form.

I'm not sure if this provides much of an answer to your question. In practical terms, you need to study harmony to understand what's been happening in western music over the past 300 years or so. Harmony is not the entirety of music or your training as a musician, just an important element of it that requires a lot of knowledge and practice.

This is an enlightening guide to developing other areas of your musicianship aside from harmony:

u/tdsfp · 2 pointsr/Music

I'm really tired of this argument over piracy and lack of physical album sales. Here's why: it doesn't distinguish between a worthwhile purchase and some mass produced cheap CDs in a terrible little case.

It isn't that I don't want to not buy music, it's that I don't want to pay for bad art.

If you stick a crappy, generic, gaudy, burned-DVD on a store shelf in a clear jewel case with jotted, chicken-scratch words that read "Beatles Discography (2009 Remaster)," I am not going to pay money for it. It could be identical in every single way to the box set in terms of quality and quantity. The music would be the same, but I would never, ever buy the DVD. Because it's worthless. Because it's junk.

So here's my point. We don't buy CDs anymore because most CDs are not worth owning. They don't enhance the music, they don't look particularly nice, and they're extremely overpriced. They're not a viable product.

And now, because we have options that make more sense as consumers, we're obviously using them. When I can get online and download an album for free, in 5 minutes, in the same exact quality as I'd get from a CD, why would I honestly want to do anything else?

I can find more albums in higher quality and faster download speeds off of damn near any bittorrent site than I can with iTunes, and the better option is also free.

We have all been raised as consumers, by consumers, in a product-driven world. How else are we supposed to react when given such options? The very forces that brought record labels and physical music sales to power is now bringing them down, and the fall is inevitable.

Until we are presented with a real product that is worth the price tag, we will continue to choose the best option for ourselves. I have absolutely no sympathy for artists that don't create art.

u/Pinyaka · 7 pointsr/RepublicOfAtheism

I am not sure that I entirely agree with this article. While a lot of art has been inspired by religious experience in the past, I would counter that a lot of art in the last century has been inspired by empirical experience. Art itself has become a kind of empirical experiment to find the connection between stimulus and experience. Sometimes god is still the subject of a work of art, but that isn't true anymore for the vast majority of work.

EDIT: Also, this is pretty good.

u/LuisNHewitt · 10 pointsr/DaftPunk

I'm not sure why it was omitted from the standard release but you can get a limited edition boxset which includes Alive 2007 on white vinyl, Alive 1997 on silver vinyl and, most importantly, a white etched 12" single which contains the complete encore.
It's a little pricey - but keep an eye out as Amazon discounts it by 50÷ once every couple of months!

Amazon: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.amazon.co.uk/Box-Alive-2007-1997-VINYL/dp/B00PCGY9OU&ved=2ahUKEwiCzoOuraXiAhXHShUIHfNEDiIQFjAWegQIAxAB&usg=AOvVaw2ZQ_qu7HloJQV9XEEGI-It


u/zxo · 2 pointsr/Catholicism

Agreed, this is a fantastic set of tunes. Actually, this is one of the few times I've bothered to buy the physical CDs -- the box set comes loaded with extras:
>This 5-CD box set includes all five volumes, plus a 42-page booklet with an original Christmas essay by acclaimed American novelist Ricky Moody, two essays, a short story by Stevens, a holiday sticker, chord charts, lyrics, comic strip, family portrait poster, photos, and an animated video.
(from Amazon description)

Plus, creative, independent artists like Stevens definitely deserve to see some of the money from their satisfied fans.

u/rationalgia · 2 pointsr/LadiesofScience

I highly recommend Here Comes Science by They Might Be Giants. My kids love it, and my son always says he's going to be a paleontologist, after the song. There are also videos for all of the songs, if you can find them. It's a great album.

u/IguanaGrrl · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I love Kevin!! :D

From your list, as AWESOMELY AMAZING the LOTR stuff is, I think I have to go with this album because Mumford & Sons is absolutely THE BEST newer band out there. I loves them.

As for me, these are under $20 including shipping, but I need them for my Mrs. Peacock costume. :( If you add this headband, it would be right AT the $20 mark AND finish off the things I need for my costume, which would be fan-fucking-tastic! :D

Thank you for the contest, you're so smart! :D

u/lifeguardoflove · 2 pointsr/beatles

I don't have the USB drive, but I have looked into it before.

To answer your Qs. The USB drive has the following albums

Please Please Me

With The Beatles

Hard Day's Night

Beatles For Sale


Rubber Soul


Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

Magical Mystery Tour

The Beatles (White Album)

Yellow Submarine

Let It Be

Abbey Road

Past Masters I & II

The tracks are FLAC and don't have DRM, so yeah they are transferrable.

Does it work on 1999ish PCs? Lol, well I'm not sure how the heck a 1999 PC is running reddit (I kid). But yeah, if you download the right media player with the right codecs, then there's no reason it won't play FLAC.

u/ChuckEye · 1 pointr/Bass

More on the mindset of playing bass than any one specific technique, but I highly recommend Victor Wooten's Groove Workshop or his book The Music Lesson (the audio book version is nice too, narrated by Wooten and features some playing between chapters.)

u/Korvaz1120 · 4 pointsr/Bass

I'd HIGHLY... HIGHLY... HIGHLY recommend watching Victor Wooten's groove workshop. It completely revolutionized my perspective as a bass guitarist and allowed me to more freely express my musicianship away from being self-conscious about notes. Plus you can listen to some epic Wooten snippets along the way.


You'll likely be convinced by the end of it that although notes are important to a degree, as a bassist keeping the GROOVE is Priority A. And groove isn't limited to 12 notes.

u/omgftwbbqsauce · 4 pointsr/vinyl

For those interested: link to Amazon

I'm just starting my vinyl collection, but this will probably be my favorite set for years to come. Everything about it oozes quality; I can't put in words the childish exuberance with which I opened the package and sifted through the contents. If you have any questions, shoot.

Also, you guys should know that you are an awesome community. I've only been here a few days (LP120 for Christmas!) and I already feel welcomed.

u/SSChicken · 2 pointsr/gaming

If you like that, then you'll love this. The London Philharmonic did a video game album which is, in my opinion, just fantastic. I found a link on Slickdeals main page a few months ago that was giving the album away for free and I got it then, but unfortunately I can't find it again at the moment (may have been limited time).

You can buy it on Amazon or Google Play for 6 bucks which is well worth it in my opinion.

Play at least the samples of Zelda, Angry Birds, and Tetris to get a good feel of the quality of this album.

u/AnotherLlama · 6 pointsr/VinylDeals

I've only ever seen this for between £35 and £40 and noticed it was waaaaay cheaper today for some reason. Managed to get it a few hours ago (when it was a quid more expensive for some reason). Seems to be a few in stock so should be good. Pretty glad to finally get a copy!


Edit: I know there's a lot of people from the US on this sub so I should also point out you can buy from the US Amazon, there is a listing that reads "Amazon Global Store UK" for $24.20 with no import fee/customs Link to US version

Singlehandedly the best advice for teaching / learning an instrument I've ever seen. It's applicable even if you don't play bass: http://www.amazon.com/Victor-Wooten-Groove-Workshop/dp/B001DPC4I2

I'd start with easy songs she likes and go from there. Keep it uncomplicated.

u/wharpua · 15 pointsr/funny

That joke formed the title of one of his comedy albums of a live set he did, which is pretty good:

I Don't Mean to Insult You, But You Look Like Bobcat Goldthwait

One bit I remember from it had Bobcat talking about filming that scene from Blow when Johnny Depp and Paul Reubens got him to sample their completely pure product. Him and Depp were comparing recent run-ins with the law (Depp with some Drunk & Disorderly thing, Goldthwait for accidentally starting a fire while doing a guest spot on the Tonight Show), and they were like, “Probation. You?” “Community Service.” Then they look at Reubens: “Anywaaaayyysss...”

u/2daMooon · 0 pointsr/vinyl

To everyone upvoting this I have one question: Why?

It is freely available so anyone with $36.99 can get one ($27.51 if you order from amazon). The OP has provided no story on context for the posting and the image is just a picture of the album.

Please take a second to think before you upvote. Ask yourself "Would I love a sub full of this content?". If the answer is yes, upvote. If it is no, move along or downvote. You can bet that people see the types of posts that get to the top of the front page and try to emulate that behaviour, so let's not encourage them with junk.

(I love the music on this album and felt the way it was presented as a record package was amazing, but this post does not show off any of that, so I downvoted)

I still plan how to kill my friend to get his copy, it's top notch quality and just makes you melt every time.

There's a triphop group called Lovage that released an album specifically entitled Music to Make Love to Your Old Lady By. It's partly a joke, but it has some pretty nice tracks.

As many have mentioned, the Tubes of You is a good place. If you need titles to start searching, check out any of these on Amazon (might be a fair bit of redundancy, I just grabbed a handful of URLs):



https://www.amazon.com/Walt-Disney-Records-Legacy-Collection/dp/B0106438AS <- Based on the cover, this looks to be the Spotify playlist /u/whitesoxfan5622 mentioned.

If none of those lists contain quite what you're looking for, try contacting City Hall in Disneyland with the specifics and they might be able to help you out/point you in the right direction.

u/nate6259 · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

The top review of the Beatles Mono Box Set on Amazon gives an excellent rundown/review of each album in stereo vs. mono.

Link TL;DR: "Your core, oddly enough, should be the mono box set. Augment this with the stereo Hard Day's Night, The Beatles For Sale, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Magical Mystery Tour, The Beatles, Abbey Road, Let It Be and stereo Past Masters."

For good measure, here's the Amazon.fr links to the individual albums:

  • Alive 1997 (single LP)
  • Alive 2007 (double LP)

    The box set includes both albums - 1997 on silver vinyl, 2007 on white vinyl. It also includes a bonus single-sided 12" with the encore tracks on side A and an etching on side B, which comes on grey vinyl. It includes a 52-page photo book, a replica VIP-pass for the 2007 tour and a download card for both albums + a live video for Harder Better Faster Stronger. Not mentioned in the description, but from the picture it appears that the box also includes a slipmat.

    EDIT: US pre-order via Amazon is up now - $130
u/checkerdamic · 1 pointr/vinyl

First thing is to list your budget. Second, figure out what they have or don't have (if possible). Next, look at the 1st pressings on discogs or a local record store in VG+ or better condition (don't go below that for a gift, also discogs can have issues of sellers overgrading so be careful) and try to stick to UK pressings for artists like those four.

Regarding the Beatles record you mentioned in another comment, go for an original UK pressing if possible such as this one though it's very pricey if you want a decent copy. If you want to give them the ultimate Beatles set and are will to break the bank at about $350 get them the Beatles in Mono Box Set. That's probably way more than what you want to spend but that's my top recommendation.

Ok so about 2 months ago I saw Demon Days pop up on Amazon UK. I bought it. For some reason once purchased it said the delivery date wasn't until May 15th, nearly two months away. I recalled reading on here about there being a lot of bootlegs of this guy around so I figured for €25 it wasn't a massive risk.

Anyway, it finally arrived today. Here is an album I've made of detailed images of the album. I've played it through and it seems to be all there. No locked grooves on Side C. No quietness of the songs. What's interesting if the disc seems to also be in packaging so its not second hand.

I wasn't delighted with how it was wrapped for shipping, it was just put in an old food box and sellotaped. But it seems to work, not be warped. Wondering if anyone can ID whether it's legit or whether I got ripped off. Regardless I think I'm gonna keep it cause it still sounds pretty good.

Again sorry for annoying this sub with yet another Demon Days post I just can't quite see my one fitting the particulars of other posts of reissues/bootlegs.

Edit: This was the page where I bought it

I did reply to him. The BTI that I have was ordered off of Amazon and arrived this week. It does have the screenplay. As far as I can tell, it is the same as the RSD release. After spinning it, there is a good amount of static noise and pops though.

u/mmmeadi · 1 pointr/vinyl

I don't know anything about labels so I won't even go there. But just taking a quick scan on amazon, Vessels by Twenty-one Pilots, Froot by Marina and the Diamonds, and Nevermind by Nirvana are all cheaper on CD than cassette.

Further, if we're talking about the DIY scene, a box of ten type II cassettes costs 27.95 USD, a box of ten type I cassettes costs 20.50 USD, while a 100 pack of CD-Rs costs 16.47 USD. So as far as I can tell, buying and selling music on cassette is significantly more expensive than CDs.

Edit: Formatting.

u/TimeTravellerSmith · 1 pointr/pcgaming

It doesn't play in the game, it's from London Philharmonic's The Greatest Video Game Music. But the theme from the game is still very good along with the rest of the soundtrack. Very orchestral.

> I am sure there are parts that are good, but goofy aliens, power Ranger colored power armor, and Cortana all scream teenage boy sci-fi Fantasy and it turned me off.

Like I said, to each their own. But most of it is very developed and some of the aliens are some comic relief (Grunts) while others are more serious (Elites). The armor wasn't even that colorful unless you customized it for multiplayer...it's standard army green. Cortana's build was a little...promiscuous though.

IMO, Mass Effect's story and character's had their terrible moments as well. I could never even finish two since it got so dry. Way too much talking going on for an action game. Combat was kinda stale in the first, and not much better in the second.

In all seriousness though, nice collection. I only have the Stereo CDs and the USB apple (since I found one for cheap.)
