Kelcy Mae Wilburn - Ever More Nest - Emerging Artist
Very nice!  
Jude-not Julian Lennon
In McCartney's recent 2 volume set called "The Lyrics", he confirms that Hey Jude was inspired by his sympathy for Julian as John was going through a divorce from his mother. Indeed, the song started as "Hey Jules". Heroin is not mentioned in McC... 
Washington Post article on MoFi vs. Fremer vs. Esposito
My post from August 6,2022: "I have purchased vinyl that was cut from digital--like Steven Wilson remasters that are excellent. I’m not against such a purchase. But with MoFi, we were lied to--flat out. The One Steps contain an insert that purpor... 
Washington Post article on MoFi vs. Fremer vs. Esposito
I have purchased vinyl that was cut from digital--like Steven Wilson remasters that are excellent. I’m not against such a purchase. But with MoFi, we were lied to--flat out. The One Steps contain an insert that purports to provide all of the steps... 
Luxman vs Hegal
I stand by my observations above. Hegels are not "clinical". They are very very good amps, in fact, rather excellent. But there is a certain Je ne sais quoi about many Luxman products. Their mid level and reference products simply sound natural an...

Albums you do not get...a plea for help and understanding
Anyone who missed his last two tours have missed him at his best since he toured with Tom Petty in 1986. IMHO. Obviously very different but gripping and with a great band.  
Albums you do not get...a plea for help and understanding
Agree on Dave Matthews. Good musicianship but boring and the drummer thinks he is the center of the band and hits the skins way too much.   
Songs that sound like Dylan
mksun wins--but it is a rip off of Like a Rolling Stone.  
Best tonearm rewire - cable and service...
Steve Leung is the man!  
I'm trusting FedEx/ UPS less by the day
How about fedex neglecting to pick up at a fedex box for 3 weekdays in a row without notice and then promising to rush the delivery and failing to do so?  
Is it ok to stack LPs horizontally?
In addition to warping (which I never considered) I always thought that the extra weight of storing horizontally would cause dust and dirt to be pressed into the grooves. So I always store vertically.   
2022 Grammy Award Show?
I debated watching the Grammys because I no longer like what is generally considered popular music. But instead of turning away, I thought I should watch so that I don’t become too "removed" from the best sellers on the contemporary scene. I concl...
