  1. Mosaics on Spotify

    285 hours!
  2. The 80-20 principle of listening to jazz albums

    Well the theory is about returns on effort. It seems to mean that most returns come quite easily (on the first 20% of effort) but that the last 20% of returns requires a lot more. So it is easy to do things in a mainly OK fashion but a lot more effort to do them well.

    Even the major corporations struggle to keep up, so go figure. Although when I want to rewatch Previn on Morecambe and Wise, here’s what I get: This video contains content from BBC Studios, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds. Maybe you can see it even if I can’t:

  12. What I mean is, people who want CDs expect to pay a low price. That low price point reduces the incentive to make them. Vinyl, on the other hand...
  13. Mr Moneybags! If the price point for CDs is so low now it isn’t worth producing them. Would you pay the double LP price? If not, why not?
  14. Still...nice package...
