Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats - Live at Red Rocks. These guys have a little bit of everything, love their energy/passion. Hope to catch them live someday.

I got this one on vinyl, going to sneak it into the rotation while we do xmas lights. Earl is/was John Lee Hooker's cousin. My daughter loves this one as well, especially her namesake track Anna Lee, though we spell it Annalee.

I found a bit roughish copy of The Hookers - If You Miss 'Im ... I Got 'Im. Both John and Earl together.

Is it still the copy you bought?   If so, that's really impressive.

An UNBELIEVABLE Japanese Victor WLP of Eat a Peach.   The vinyl is NM and sounds even better than it looks.   It is now one of the nicest records I own.

It occured to me today that the best part about Aldi selling records is that my wife only sees a transaction from Aldi and thinks I did more grocery shopping.   I hope they sell vinyl on a more regular basis.   In fact, I think Giant Eagle and Shop and Save should too!

Win-win! I picked up the Adele a few days ago. For a new, sealed record it has horrible pops n clicks throughout. Hopefully  it will clean up.

Found a reasonably priced RSD version of this and I've spun it over and over 5-6 times and hear something new each time.

Any chance that could be related to the earlier issues you were discussing?   Are you absolutely certain of the quality of the ground signal on your table?   A bad ground can cause all kinds of headaches.
