  1. Mosaic's Black and White label box set

    I just got one too. Of course, I am already now on vacation far from my home...
  2. Some day we will have robots that will be able to play perfect solos on demand. I won't be listening, and that is not just because I won't be around anymore.
  3. COUNT BASIE ZONE....

    It looks like most of it is from national guard transcriptions from the early 60s. There may not be a definitive indentification.
  4. So Long, Pete

    Sorry to hear this. RIP
  5. BB King Question

    Thanks, Jim. Just for clarification, I imagine that was Johnnie Taylor, not Little Johnny Taylor. Right. I've also heard bad rumors about the way Johnnie Taylor treated his musicians and other professionals around him. But damn could he flat out sing!
  6. BB King Question

    BB King generally traveled around the country with a bus that included his whole band, even in the 50s.
  7. Best track you heard all week

    One of my all-time favorite boogaloos:

  9. Apple Music App

    I recall that when Apple dropped DRM, it offered to convert my DRM files into unrestricted files for $600. Yea, thanks. It was kind of astonishing given the fact that the unrestricted files were then selling for the exact same price that I had already paid Apple for the DRM files. I ended up converting most of them myself, although the sound quality of many of them was already pretty dated.
  10. Apple Music App

    OK, I will try it. Thanks!
  11. Apple Music App

    No. Should I? Do you use it?
  12. Apple Music App

    I don't mess around with the cloud at all. I have it turned off on Apple Music. Before I did that, iTunes started changing back labels (titles, genres, etc.) that I changed on music that I downloaded from iTunes. I don't understand my technical problem either, and am now beyond trying to solve it in Apple Music. I just want an alternative program to manage my MP3s. John
