  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

  2. Dead CD-R. Can it be revived?

    When i put it in my Mac it says: You inserted a black CD. Choose an action from the pop-up menu or click ignore. Windows media plays showed tracks and playing times but would try to rip but every time there was an error. I really believe the cd was finalized at one time. this CD is from 2000.

    I'll try this tomorrow. You are correct about .cda files. That was all I could see. Thanks! XLD didn't work.

    Trio Jeepy. What a fascinating and beautiful album. I love the way the album starts with Housed From Edward and its understated introduction.
  5. Dead CD-R. Can it be revived?

    Thanks Shrdlu I'll try Winamp. Not worried about being out a little money for this cd. Something that is rare and it wasn't much money. I would like to hear the tunes though. I believe it was finalized in the past, I have seen the "not finalized" error before.

    On a Bird kick, I don't know why this is 2 discs though
  7. Dead CD-R. Can it be revived?

    I've tried everything from iTunes, to Toast, Windows Media Player, to opening the disc in the search and copying the files directly as "data"
  8. Dead CD-R. Can it be revived?

    I did some searching but couldn't find anything. So here is the dilemma. I bought an album that doesn't play in any cd player I own (3 separate units including my car), my external disc drive on my Mac, my MacBook Pro (when I had a similar issue with a Miles Mosley in the past the MacBook Pro worked) or a PC or my playstation. My Mac and MacBook both see the disc as blank and the cd players either blank or error. Lastly the PC read the data but I received an error every time I tried to rip it. Anyone have any ideas on how to get this music off the disc?
  9. I was referring to owning the right for perpetuity including the compositions if I remember correctly. I don’t have the book on hand. Have you read the book to know the scenario we are referring?
  10. Yes I agree. I was disappointed to hear that. I do wish they actually said how much they had to pay Steeplechase. He may have just seen it as a chance to “stick it to the big label” and wasn’t anything against Dexter. Those Steeplechase contracts sounded like a horrible one for the artist though.
  11. I finished it this morning. More insightful as you go... a little I suppose. There is a lot of “I believe” or “in my opinion” which I personally don’t consider insight. And per this book Dexter loved every drummer he played with. Haha. It was a good read, the last couple chapters the best which makes sense since Maxine was present. Worth picking up, but will pass on instead of keeping for a reread.
  12. Frank Loesser was also a time traveler since he was singing about Rohypnol way before it existed...
  13. I'm a little more than 100 pages in. The timeline jumps around and there is an ample amount of repeating in all chapters thus far. Still a worthy read. Maxine interjects personal proclamations that I could live without but it is a fascinating read regardless. Crazy how much of the scene Dexter lived in overlapped with the scene Horace Tapscott fostered in. Connected by a band director in high school.
