Discos 2022

Publicado em 16/12/2022

Este ano mantive esta lista dos discos que compro para tentar perceber quais foram os melhores, ou os que ouvi mais. São vinil, excepto os assinalados (CD). Tendo em conta a resolução de ano novo (do ano passado) de comprar menos discos, pode-se dizer que fica essa resolução para 2023 — e mesmo assim se reduzir para metade dá uns sete ou oito discos por mês. Diria que a maior parte compro na Tubitek no Porto, muitos também na Amazon, muito ocasionalmente na Vinyl Gourmet de Lisboa, Acoustics Sounds (EUA) — agora no Michael45, Vinyl Me Please (EUA), Sam Records (França), The Lost Recordings (França) e HVV (Alemanha). Às vezes discos que já não arranjo em lado nenhum, no site Discogs. E por fim, directamente aos artistas no site Bandcamp. O valor indicado foi quanto me custou, mas os preços alteram-se frequentemente (mais portes de tudo o que veio de fora de Portugal e dos EUA ou Reino Unido acresce o esbulho alfandegario, nem que seja uma encomenda de valor 1,00€). Os links são para a Amazon.de ou Amazon.es, se comprarem seguindo o link, posso receber uma pequena percentagem.

Vinyls

Publicado em 05/01/2022

When dad’s former employer started making plastics in the late 1920s, no market was itching to buy them. But the company, in a sense, had to make plastics.
Its new commercial antifreeze, Prestone, was synthesized from natural gas and created a by-product, ethylene dichloride, a chemical that had no practical purpose and so was stockpiled on-site. Quickly, it amassed in unmanageable, “embarrassing” quantities, as one Carbide newsletter later put it. Its best use, the company decided, was in making vinyl chloride monomer, recognized as a carcinogen since the ’70s, but back then a building block for a rascally class of plastics no one had commercialized yet—vinyls.

A Limpar Discos

Publicado em 28/11/2021

Pro-ject VC S2 Alu

Nunca gosto de limpar menos de 10 discos numa sessão, mas se forem muitos mais (cerca de 30), é um trabalho fastidioso (ou “malicioso”, como dizia um trolha que conheci). É com a Pro-ject VC S2 Alu, mas acho que a vou vender para adquirir uma máquina de limpeza por ultra-sons.
Por falar em limpeza, leio no blogue Analog Planet de Michael Fremer (um indivíduo que de facto não aprecio) que o gel de limpeza das agulhas, designadamente o DS Audio ST-50 que utilizo, deixa um resíduo peganhento na agulha e cantiléver… Vou continuar a utilizar até conseguir mais informações. mas não me parece lá muito positivo.

Novos Discos

Acoustic Sounds Acoustic Sounds Acoustic Sounds

Chegaram novos discos da Acoustic Sounds, a propósito da substituição dos Miles Davis, Kind of Blue UHQR (que ainda não tocaram). Porque, política da empresa, trocam os discos mas só enviam com uma nova encomenda.
Resolvi encomendar a caixa The Story of Herbie Hancock da Vinyl Me Please, que é uma editora que prensa reedições exclusivas vendidas apenas no próprio site. A razão da Acoustic Sounds vender esta caixa e outros títulos VMP, é que têm um acordo para os discos prensados por eles na Quality Record Pressings. Pré-encomendei outra caixa na VMP, VMP Anthology: The Story of Philadelphia International Records, mas teve de ir para um amigo na Holanda porque não enviam para Portugal.
De resto, Death Cab For Cutie porque continuo um sucker for covers, Trio 64 Bill Evans (Verve/Acoustic Sounds), The Best of Sam Cooke (Analogue Productions), Sonny Clark My Conception (Blue Note/Tone Poets), Grant Green Idle Moments (Blue Note/Classic Series) e Kenny Burrell Midnight Blue (Blue Note/Classic Series).
