SHURE M97XE Players Cartridges by Shure
3 of 3 people found the following review helpful
Its difficult to make a blanket recommendation for a cartridge because its a very personal thing. I've owned several MM carts, most recently an AT120e and a 2M Red. Both of these I found too bright in my set up (1210 with an RB300 on a Origin Live armboard, Funk Anchromat and Isonoe feet feeding the MM stage in a Rega Brio R). A friend told me to give this a try, which was a leap of faith as Shure are fairly out of fashion in the UK. And I really like it's sound - it seems to roll off the treble and have a warm, rounded mid range. I can understand why other people have described the sound as 'boxy', but I can only describe it as warm and even less helpfully as 'friendly'. I can't say that I… Read more

Hugh Johnson's Wine Journal by Hugh Johnson
If you already have Hugh's Pocket Wine books from the last few years, a lot of the text in this will be familiar. Virtually all the pictures in the book are from photo libraries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Jamaican music, 6 April 2010
Hudson is one of those 'cult' fugures in Jamaican music that seem to be more popular outside of Jamaica than at home. However his catalogue of early 45's contained many hits, all present here along with some brilliant, more obscure recordings. His later solo work might not be to everyone's taste, however as this comp shows, he produced some of the best music in Jamaica in the pre-roots era (1970 - 73). This double cd contains music unobtainable elsewhere, and since Trojan's recent sale to Universal it's becoming scarce. If, like me, you already have the early 90's comp 'Studio Kinda Cloudy' don't pass this over - it contains nearly 3 times as many cut's and has excellent sleeve notes. Like… Read more
