    I’m sure we’ve a some mention of this channel in other threads, but he really deserves a thread of his own. Loads of great content e.g. he’s been record diving in the other Stereophile reviewers record collections and they all have real gold to be found:



    Art Dudley



    Michael Fremer

    Full channel here. I’d love to go jazz record hunting in the USA, so much great stuff out there. By saying that I have a surprising amount of the albums the two above pulled out!

    Yes have been viewing it for some time as well. It's well worth watching, but he should put his reading glasses on when trying to decipher the record covers at times. :oops:

    Art Dudley, with his love of old idler drives and old Altec speakers, seems a wise soul.

    MF’s enthusiasm with Ellington’s Masterpieces is infectious, I feel the same way about Blues in Orbit (1959) and Historically Speaking (1956) - both tremendously joyful and brilliantly arranged albums. In fact the very cool title piece Blues in Orbit was a profound inspiration to a young Mike Westbrook.

    I think Ken may work there, it features in several of his videos.

    I've been there a few times now - 8th floor of an apartment building, not what you would really expect.

    I’m tempted - where have you ordered it from?

    An amazing record collection. It’s a real pity that he doesn’t get more views.

    There's a 1969 NM- copy on Discogs for £12 or a VG+ copy from 1954 for a tenner.

    Thanks chaps. I’m going to try and source an AP version from a UK seller. Could take some time given the current state of affairs.
