You mentioned that you were sending 250 CDs in for repair. I had not heard that this service was available. Where do you send them?

For scratches, I usually use toothpaste and a soft cloth. Meguiars makes a plastic polish that works well also.

I'm sending them to a place I've used with very good results twice before (if they give me a good rate on such a large order). Their website is rubberdisc.com and they're out of Colorado, as I recall.

 

They use sandpaper to buff out the scratches - at least the place I used before did, and they gave the same results - and they restore them to good as new.

 

They charge $2.75 apiece for up to 10 cds, which is nearly always much cheaper than buying a new cd. They do cds, laserdiscs - they might even do albums, I've never asked. I've been very happy with their work.

Mmmmmmm the mighty good ´ol Gary Thain.. isn´t it ? ;) I used to listen to the "Uriah Heep Live" as a kid (About 8 or 9 yeras old) and loved his playing... thought he was quite "intrincate" for the majority of hard rock bass players I had heard back then... (I mostly listened to either soul/funk, or Jazz... and on the Rock side, mostly Metal ... or prog symph/rock...)

 

Definitely a nice cd bunch, there. :D And by the way, I have had the best luck by buying Amazon´s secondhand. Sometimes I even get sealed CDs. Some stores put them at ultra low prices because the common people don´t buy them... then I come and get them for real cheap. :P

Can I come over and listen to your new cds with you?

 

Anytime, but then you have to give me a lesson!

 

I've used Amazon for several years with nothing but success. If it's on cd it's on Amazon.

 

Used is definitely the way to go. I get "Like New" or "Very Good" used cds almost every time and they're always in the advertised condition. Sometimes their prices are unbelieveable - some of these Charlie Parker cds were under a buck, so around $3 with shipping. Quite a bargain!

Heep's had nothing but excellent bass players, and their music (even the '80s metal phase they went through) is a treat for us bass players. Paul Newton and Gary Thain added a serious touch of jazz to the band sound and yes, Gary was an intricate player. Then there was John Wetton and Trevor Bolder who added the most kick-ass melodic bass lines.

 

In the '80s you had Bob Daisley who has gone somewhat underrated in Heep circles but like I said, it was their metal phase. And now Trevor Bolder's back and playing more melodically than he ever did with David Bowie & The Spiders from Mars or his earlier Heep work. I left out Mark Clarke because his only recorded contribution is "The Wizard" where he also does lead vocals during the bridge.

 

For some awesome bass lines do check out either Live - January 1973 or Sea Of Light. These are my faves, bass-wise, along with Wonderworld
