It’s almost three years ago that we visited NYC. Something that was on our to do list for quite a while. There was especially one place that we really wanted to visit, besides all the other great spots in NYC. This place goes by the name of Coney Island. We both know Coney Island from two different movies. Steven knows it from the movie “The Warriors” and Cleo from “Requiem for a Dream”. If you ever want to visit NYC then Coney Island is a real recommendation. It takes a while with the subway to get there, but it’s a cool ride above Brooklyn for about a hour from China Town. Coney Island is a big pier and has a magical vibe. You see all kinds of people, carnaval and a place with the best hot dogs of NYC. Now back to vinyl Sunday, this soundtrack is pretty cool, but we only wanted this record for it’s classic cover. For those who don’t know this movie it’s all about the gang culture in the 70’s/80’s in NYC and it’s a absolute classic.
Days are getting shorter and colder in the Netherlands. Too bad, but great for some Joy Division through your speakers on this grey Sunday.
This album was a special Records Store Day release in 2015. Only 5000 were released on red vinyl and we were pretty lucky that our local record store received just one copy. This album is the demo version of the official “Another One” album. So you can hear some more jamming in between and some improvising in voice and guitar. Only good vibes on this sunday!
Fresh pick up this week: Allah-Las – Calico Review
Hells Angels on wheels is a movie made in 1967. Starring very young Jack Nichelson. Don’t expect a full action movie about Hells Angels. But if you want to see some cool old Harley Sportsters, classic Hells Angels gear and even some original members then this movie is must watch! Even Ralph ‘Sonny’ Barger, the president of the Oakland, California chapter of the Hell’s Angels, is seen in an early scene but has no spoken lines in the film. I prefer the Hells Angels 69 movie if I have to choose.
But the soundtrack of the movie is really good. Completely made by Chuck Sedacca & Stu Phillips.
The soundtrack is completely instrumental with some mellow, psych, rock and surf influences. Every track has a other vibe. But that’s completely why we like it. Perfect for some background tunes while working.
New weekly item on our blog. We will show you the record that is playing in our house.
Vinyl has something magical to us, you have to put a little bit more effort to hear your favorite song.
You can really hold the music in your hands. We can spend days and nights just playing records in our living room.
We will give you a view in our (little) vinyl collection.
This week we listened a lot to Highwaymen; country super group by Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson.
Only 2 records made by this super group and this was their first one. We played this record in our car during our California road trip.
When we came back from our road trip we really wanted this album on vinyl. And we found it second hand on a flee market! couldn’t be more happy!
Playing this record is really taking us back to the American highways, good memories!
The Highwaymen is a our recommendation for some real American vibes through your speakers!
