  4. Soul Majestics... nailed it.. when I saw that last copy go for $800+ on eBay I just couldn't believe my eyes.

  5. Great thread, found it just yesterday. First one that came to mind was TSU Toronados on Rampart. May have been rare at some point but there's probably a few hundred copies out there by now (with a new one going up on Discogs every week, it seems) and it still sells for 200-300 $/£. Top notch record whatever the case. It's probably also a good example of a record that people won't let go of once they have it in their collection - same as with Soul Brothers 6 on Fine, although that one seems to be more scarce overall. This is just personal impression from someone who hasn't been at this long, all of that said..

  6. Thank you. I looked it up and it turns out I already have that on LP - but it's on some weird unheard of label called something like "Music on Vinyl" or "Vinyl Only Records" (?) or something to that effect, and sounds pretty bad - this is actually what I had in mind when I wrote about sound quality in my initial post. It sounds as if many of the songs had been lifted off badly worn 45's and not even on good gear, and then EQ'd to death to compensate (making it even worse). I can't imagine that a Goldmine CD would sound like this, I'll check out the samples online. ATB.

  7. Thank you very much Rick. I believe I've actually got one of the "Where the Girls Are" volumes somewhere myself, on LP; I agree with your description, they weren't strictly soul, more girl group, but still an enjoyable listen from what I recall. I should fish it out from wherever it's hiding and give it a spin, it's been ages.

  9. Hello all, I'm looking for a nice, easy to find one-disc (CD or LP, would prefer LP) compilation of classy '60s female midtempo numbers.. nothing too "academic" or exhaustive, I want it as a birthday gift for a buddy who's liked this sort of stuff in the past when I've played it for him, something that lends itself well to casual listening. Doesn't have to be super-rare stuff either (I'd put sound quality before that, as I've heard a few really shoddy-sounding comps over the years). Can you guys think of any off the top of your head that might fit the bill? I don't do comps much and I'd rather go with a safe bet than start guessing.. Thanks! D

  13. Yeah, like you said I've had mixed luck with the aftermarket replacements. Over the years I've found a few of very high quality for different carts and a couple of them even worked better than the originals. But overall, they tend to go from "meh" to really bad quality. I didn't worry that much when most of my records were current-issue LP's - worst case, I could go out and buy another one. But with 50+ years old expensive/irreplaceable originals I'm not risking it...

  14. Hey John. I'm not far from you (Granada). I don't know the 605's but I am familiar with other Stanton models and here's a warning: the styli for the different lines are not interchangeable. Even if you could get them to fit by trimming down the plastic (something I have done with Shures and other brands), the cartridge bodies themselves do not operate on the same principle. The 500 series is MM (the magnet is in the stylus itself), but the 680 and 681 series are "moving iron" (also known as Variable Reluctance) and have no magnets in the stylus, therefore a 500 stylus in a 680/681 body would produce no sound (or very low and distorted sound). Strangely enough the 890 series is MM again, so theoretically you could get a stylus for the 500 to work in an 890 (not sure why you'd want to, though) and the other way around. Just thought I'd throw that out there in case you decided to experiment. I have just looked the model up and it looks like a 680 series cartridge (they are taller and less "stubby" than the 500 series). I have a 680 or two and used to really like them, and they're very gentle on records. I believe that the D6800AL stylus should work in those, it's a spherical tip and runs well just above 2.5 grams. Just make sure you get the original Stanton part as the knock-off ones are never as good. ATB, Damian
