Shortest rock song with lyrics....
Check out "Earache" The World's Shortest Album with songs as short as 1.3 seconds. Whether any of the vocalization could be considered "lyrics" is questionable.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8vDIJYWliI  
Ry Cooder recommendation...
Many of Ry's albums are pretty eclectic. He liked to do old depression-era stuff, gospel, calypso, and world music. He sings the lead vocals on much of his music and, while an adequate singer, his singing is not his strong suit. There is a 2-CD se... 
You want the TRUTH from those Wilson Alexia's, maybe you can't handle the TRUTH
Good gawd, y'all !!!!! 
Wyred 4 Sound or PS Audio
I have the W4S STP SE, and was immediately struck with how transparent it sounds. I originally paired it with a Musical Design D-140 and Maggie MG-12's. I now have it paired with a Son of Ampzilla II and Maggie 1.7i's. The combination is the best ... 
Long lost songs
Roxy54:Also loved Magical Misery Tour. It was a VERY convincing impression of Lennon sung by Tony Hendra. The lyrics were all actual quotes from Lennon. dweller:There is a more uptempo version of Under My Thumb on the album Got Live If You Want It.   
TEKTON OWNERS
I have a pair of the Lore Reference. As bcowen said about the regular Lore, they also require some break-in time. I also thought they sounded pretty thin out of the box but, once I had a little time on them, I gradually started pushing them a litt... 
Help with loud pop when AC kicks on - phono amp problem
Yes, Al, the lights are fluorescent - and are older ones at that. I have been thinking of replacing them with LED, which I’m hoping will not cause the same sort of problem. The switches are newer silent type and not dimmers. BTW, I didn’t mean to ... 
Help with loud pop when AC kicks on - phono amp problem
If I may interject, I too have had a popping sound that had begun recently, only it happens when activating certain light switches. I had recently replaced my line stage as well as my phono stage, so I didn't know where the fault may lie. The AC d... 
Record grading, Using "Mint" as a grade for opened vinyl.
czarivey:I would say that a record that has never been sealed could definitely be considered Mint, if it meets all the criteria. In fact, sealed records present a dilemma due to the fact that the record could be defective in a number of ways, but ... 
Record grading, Using "Mint" as a grade for opened vinyl.
The Goldmine record guide (Krause Publications) grading scheme has become the standard for assessing the condition of records. Their pricing guides use Near Mint (NM) as the baseline condition for their valuations. Here’s what they say about Mint ... 
Holiday Today
I see whatcha did there!! Haha! 
Why are record cleaners so expensive?
samzx12:Oh man, now slaw knows where you live!dgarretson:Had my 916 stolen 6 years ago. You're not riding mine, are you? ;-) 
RIP Merle Harggard
Merle was definitely one of the greats. My old band played almost exclusively blues and blues-oriented rock, but we also did his Working Man Blues. bdp24,Speaking of Okie from Muskogee, the Youngbloods remade his song as an answer song with new ly... 
record show experiences
czarivey,Why didn't I think of that? I have a little stack of MOFI's and other gems that I've been wanting to take to the shows.That would also help with another issue that crops up every once in awhile, and that's theft. There are just too many o... 
record show experiences
TZ:Like any business, the vendors at the record shows concentrate on the stuff that sells the most. Rock, blues  and pop are the mainstays, along with a little jazz. As for the audiophile stuff, Whart has a point about vendors preferring internet ...
