Vinyl (MCS 6700) - Frank Zappa - Son of Mr. Green Genes

Turntable: MCS 6700 Direct Drive
Phono Cart: Denon DL-110
Preamp: Rega Fono Mini
Stereo: Marantz 2235b

Recorded at 24/96 (24-bit, 96kHz) on Audacity.

Notes -- Here is the opening track to Herbie Hancock's 1969 LP, Fat Albert Rotunda. This was his first album for Warner Brothers, and his first album post-Miles Davis. The songs were originally used for Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids and then expanded for this album. The RnB and funky stylings would come into fruition in later years with The Headhunters, but this sound is very unique in Herbie's catalog.

This LP is the green label WB pressing. "Green Labels" are always the best WB records to own. They are far superior to the "palm tree" pressings of the later 1970s. Always search for the best record LP pressings - the differences can be quite dramatic.

The MCS 6700 turntable was JC Penny's top-line model of the late 1970s. It's a rebranded Technics SL-1900 with a larger frame, more stylish buttons, and the same excellent Technics sound. It's a terrific turntable.

The phono cartridge is the always-excellent Denon DL-110, a high-output moving coil. The phono preamp is the Rega Fono Mini, a sterling champ that is sadly overlooked. And the stereo receiver is my venerable Marantz 2235b from 1977.
