I have been promoting Iris for years now, including here on Audiogon. "No Time To Cry" is indeed a masterpiece, perhaps the finest song written in the past half-century, and I’m not exaggerating. It was Merle singing her praises (a pun I’m happy with ;-) that hipped me to Iris. Thank you Merle!
I took the CD containing NTTC to CES in the late 90’s, using it as demo material. When Jerry Crosby played NTTC on his modified Quad 63’s, I broke down in tears (if you’ve heard the song you understand why), making a fool of myself, I felt. Rather unprofessional!
I’m very happy for you Richard, that you appreciate what Iris is and does, and truly pity those who don’t.
