Grady Runyan’s (Owner of Grady’s Record Refuge in Ventura) choice of TT + some great recommendations

At home I use a JVC QL-7 as my main turntable.  



It’s a no frills, fully manual, direct drive turntable.  Always been super reliable and never had any issues with it.  I’ve had it for about 10 years now, and have put an incredible amount of hours on it.  I usually use a Shure V-15 type III cart with it.  Want to get a shout out to K.C. Staples (of Record Outlet in Thousand Oaks 🙂 for selling me this great turntable!  




Here are some records I’ve been jamming on it lately:

Taste – s/t.  Rory Gallagher’s first band.  Rocks.
Jim Sullivan – UFO.  Great reissue on Light In The Attic, Jim’s back story is pretty bizarre.
Wild Tchoupitoulas – s/t.  Awesome New Orleans funk featuring the Meters.
Redd Kross – Researching the Blues.  One of my favorite bands from the 80’s, new album is excellent!
Dick Hyman – The Age of Electronicus.  One of the weirder Moog LPs (and there’s a lot of weird Moog LPs).
Lawndale – Sasquatch Rock.  Somehow overlooked these guys back in the day, now they’re my favorite surf band.
Yusef Lateef – The Blue Yusef Lateef.  Adventurous and hard to describe, like hearing a new language.
Cave – Pure Moods.  These guys played my store a couple years ago and blew me away, and this record is even better!
