This one i picked today.

A.J.VanDenHul was here since last Wednesday evening,so,drove
to meet him and see how the old man is doing.You'd expect him to talk about hi-fi and/or cables and cartridges but actually the man enjoys talking about music and good wine
Anyway,we were at a friend's shop when our friend put a record on the turntable as backround music.I am not a die hard jazz fan and neither like Japaneese performers for they have the skill but lack drama and emotion,but after listening for a few minutes i bought this lp.As far as i understand,it is a TBM 45 rpm reissue by Cisco can't be sure about that and didn't even think about this until i got home and tried to locate it at the "Acoustic Sounds" website.Anyways,the lp is by "Yama & Jiro's Wave" and is called "Girl Talk". Excellent music ! That is all i am going to say.

Consider this a "Follow Up"

After listening to this lp at home in a more say "controlled
enviroment",i came to the conclusion that it wasn't as good as i first thought.Do not get me wrong,it is still a good lp but it is marred by too much "noise" for a 45 rpm recording and the background isn't as "black" as some other lps i know such as the Vivaldi's four seasons on "Fone".
Overall,i'd say it was an excellent recording if it was on 180 gr 33 rpm but not so on 200 gr 45 rpm.

Re: Consider this a "Follow Up"

I've always wanted to try his cables, but they aren't as easy to come by over here as they are in Europe.

Sometimes it's easy to forget that most audio designers became interested in designing gear because they are music lovers. Anytime you make a business out of something you enjoy, you're treading on often unpleasant ground. I kinda like hearing that he would rather talk about music and wine than talk shop.
