Ron, he only has one album on vinyl and its a 180 gram pressing - "a fragile balance". I'd love to get your thoughts on it once you've listened through it a few times. Happy listening!
Nothing wrong by dating yourself by listening to the Beatles Ron - I own every single Beatles albums (the latest releases on CD)... and many on vinyl. I listen to them all the time
BTW - in my first list I made a big omission by not mentioning The Black Keys (I also own every single one of their albums)... a few on vinyl too. I just love these guys sound - distinct, creative and very chilling for just about any type of mood!
Hi, SoundGame I went to his web site and listened to some mp3 tracks. I am interested in purchasing this record. Where did you find it. It is available off the web site, however I would rather just go and get it rather then waiting for shipping.
There is a large selection of The Black Keys at Starr Records.
Which one is your favourite?
Btw. I think it's time to throw on a little Rubber Soul or maby Abby Road, wait Let it be, I am so confused
George Thorogood & The Destroyers self titled album is really exciting on vinyl , especially if your a fan of really good slide guitar.
I've always been a huge Dire Straits fan, and for most of that time my goto album was their self-titled debut. I still play this quite often, but when I got a hold of a Japanese pressing of Love Over Gold last year it took over as my favourite of theirs. Not only that, it climbed into my Top 10 list of all-time favourite albums. If you're a vinyl fan I strongly suggest you try and secure a copy of this pressing. It is super quiet, very dynamic and an absolute joy to listen to.
John - I love the smell of vinyl in the morning!
I have digitized close to 1200 of my albums, some of them several times (as I improved my analog to digital converter) and I can tell you that with a top notch analog to digital converter in place, the conversion from analog to digital is effectively benign on the resultant sound. IOW, the conversion process to digital can't be heard with our ears nor can any distortions be measured.
However, if one were to then convert the digital file back to analog (and stamp it to vinyl) then you are introducing a smorgasbord of analog distortions/noises into the equation which may not be, ummmm, appreciated by some (of the objectivists). Nevertheless, it may sound great to others (the subjectivists).
