    I'm Alex.

    Question Which LP are you using for demoing your turntable?

    Every now and then a friend drops by for a chat, and some of them get mighty interested in listening to my new turntable. I keep waffling between a few nice sounding LPs whenever I have to decide which one to put on to impress my friends.

    Which LP in your collection is your 'go to' record when you wish to blow the socks off some unsuspecting listeners?
    Don't you just hate it when you cannot detect where the post ends and a signature line begins?

    Alex.
