||I bought my first
I was 10 years
Rescue by the Rolling Stones. I loved it then because his voice gets
all creepy and strange, I love it now for its wicked bass line. I still have
it, along with about 300 other 45s in a bombproof flightcase purchased from
play them on a portable institutional
rescued from a school renovation. It's a Newcombe with tube amplifier and
one big mono speaker. It has a delicious warm sound. Today I mic'd it to
the PA at the
Rock Flea Market and played one record after another from 10am - 6pm,
then between bands until almost midnight. It's a real meditation listening
to a song closely so as to pick up the thread which leads to the next selection.
Even after playing more than 10 hours of records I'd touched only half the
crate or less (not even counting B-sides) and was eager to spin more. I could
easily do a 24-hour marathon set and am
angling for the opportunity.
