    i own a few lps from linn records, carol kidd, claire martin, and just love the quality of the recording and the music itself...i was told these albums were used by dealers to show off the abilities of an lp12..im running lp12, lingo2, linto, ekos2, akiva...its a shame linn records only makes a few actual records...most are cds. thx

    Carol Kidd's records where available to the general public. It's possible they where sold only through Linn dealers, though, can't remembaer clearly now.

    The records Linn cut in the 1980's where certainly better sounding than almost anything else. They started by modifying an old cutting lathe but eneded up rebuilding almost everything. And they used Naim(!) amps to drive the Ortofon cutting head with no processing.

    I have some with classical music they cut for the swedish importer.

    It doesn't seem to be in use anymore. A pity.

    I seem to recall an album on Linn by ? Jon Strong? Anyone know what it is? I haven't seen one (record or CD). My rose tinted ears seem to recall liking it at a demo!

    I once saw Jon Strong live in Ashford (gig organised by the local Linn dealer). He was good - got signed copy of his LP to show for it.
    I seem to recall that the gig was very poorly attended and that the man himself was somewhat cynical about his label ('glad to see so many of you dragged yourselves away from your overpriced hifis in order to be here tonight' or something along those lines. He had a point.....). Nice bloke, from my brief conversation with him.
    From memory, the Linn lp is called 'Follow Me'.
    I believe he has toured with some top acts (Ry Cooder springs to mind, though I may be wrong).

    Ex brickie, I have this CD "Follow me", given to me by Harrod's Linn department as part of an apology for mistakenly selling the LK140 ordered in for me on my one day in London before going back to Swizzieland. I'm a nearly 100% classical listener, so I listened to it a whole once (and not even all of it). I think it's still around the house somewhere, so if I still have it and you want it, it's yours for the P&P to you from Swizzieland (probably about £5 total). PM me if interested.
