    What are you listening to?

    Mp3s are great because they don’t take up as much memory as a vinyl or CD, making it possible to collect an amazing amount of music on one’s hard drive. But how is the necessary memory reduced? It is done by taking out information from the original CD recording, both sonic information and mathematical redundant information. In the end about 91% of the sonic information is removed.

    What are the best sounding Simon&Garfunkul records?

    I hear you, these were the days of record companies 10 for a dollar, if you buy 3 for full price. My copy is as you say - low fi! It was for the track Bridge, that was the song on the outside grove side 2 that got the finger traffic. I did not even like any of the other tracks. To the trash bin with this record. I can get it on uTube if needed/or not. On the good side it was placed next in my collection to Supertramp Even In The Quietest Momenents . . . that made my day for Vinyl over internet! Thanks for that - the entire Supertramp was awesome. A keeper for sure!

    Blast From the Past, First Audio Setups

    My first system was tape, at that time I recorded all my friends records. This was the machine I had in 1966. A Wollensak R to R with swing out detachable "speakers".

    Name your first Ten Vinyls

    J of course (1st letter of group name as opposed to 1st letter of person's surname) The more difficult question is which genre (acid rock, folk rock, psychedelic rock, pop, ?) The J section was my choice, also I put Starship & Hot Tuna in there also. They started as acid rock finally landed in the record club leavings.

    Pink Floyd - Zabriskie Point

    Zabriskie Point is a soundtrack album to the Michelangelo Antonioni film of the same name. It was originally released in February 1970 and comprises songs from various artists. A 1997 re-release includes four bonus tracks each from Jerry Garcia and Pink Floyd that were used in the film, but not the original soundtrack. Jim Morrison of the Doors wrote the track "L'America" for the film, but was rejected by Antonioni ("L'America" was later released on the Doors album L.A. Woman). A Rolling Stones track, "You Got the Silver", is featured in the film but not present on this album. Track info and more here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zabriskie_Point_%28album%29
