bdp24--I owned an original ’65 Deluxe Reverb for 20 years and never understood why everyone else thought it was the desert island amp (and just where do you find electricity on a desert island?). I later found that what I really wanted was a Vibrolux Reverb. Different strokes, I suppose.
I lost my last watch years ago and never replaced it.
secretguy, I am an actual trained musician and I think the stuff EC did from Mayall through Blind Faith is outstanding. Love the studio solos with Cream.
I thought this was going to be a thread about the use or non use of master clocks for dacs, etc.
I don’t even wear a watch. A friend gave me some very good copies of expensive watches. She thought it might be a nice accessory, as I was on the dating scene a number of years ago, but always forgot to wear them. I did buy a super expensive bottle of Creed men’s cologne that was quite helpful.
@jrpnde: Gordon Lightfoot's Bobby McGee is my favorite version of that song. Good recording, too.
In 1973 I was visiting the newly-opened Audio Arts in Livermore California on the very day Bill Johnson was delivering and installing his complete ARC system (Thorens TD-125 table, ARC's pro-type arm which never made it into production, Decca Blue cartridge, SP-3 pre-amp, Magneplanar Tympani T-I loudspeakers bi-amped with D51 and D75 amps. The sound blew my young mind. Later in the year that system was in my house ;-) in the shop's listening room. AA proprietor Walter Davies played that very track, and Johnson remarked on the good sq of the recording. I bought a copy of the album (If You Could Read My Mind), when I got back to San Jose, and still have it.
Ry Cooder is a guitarist's guitarist. Good taste is (heh) timeless.
