  1. Mobile Fidelity: Uh-Oh, Spaghetti-Os

    I haven’t watched any 45 RPM Audiophile videos. I’ll check it out. I only watch about a third of Espositos videos. They only channel I consistently watch is Channel 33 RPM because I really like Frank and they are short. I follow Noble Records but never watch it anymore.
  2. Mobile Fidelity: Uh-Oh, Spaghetti-Os

    Esposito’s YouTube is a good watch most of the time and he does irritate a lot of people. I started watching him when he was dragging ERC for their quality. He made a good argument. The beef with him and Fremer was hilarious. Fremer is a tool imo. He’s the quintessential audiophile dork. I just can’t believe Esposito is only 37… I would have guessed much older.
  3. Mobile Fidelity: Uh-Oh, Spaghetti-Os

    This might be my favorite breakdown of everything. Spot on Hutch!
  4. Mobile Fidelity: Uh-Oh, Spaghetti-Os

    This is funny and sad at the same time. MoFi knew what they were doing at the highest level and the engineers didn’t see the problem because the SQ was great. Fetishizing AAA needed to end. It’s been well known digital can sound as good.
  5. Kevin Gray interview

    I can’t remember where but I heard they used to leave tapes in the rear window of their car on a summer day to “bake” the tapes. I think it was for the Star Wars soundtrack but don’t really remember.
  6. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    Brian Walsh is a beast. I’ve seen him in a few different settings and he always impresses.
  7. took almost twice as long as I was quoted but I’m really happy with the outcome
  8. Not sure if anyone purchases from bandcamp, but they are waiving their fees on Friday so artists can make more money. I missed this the last time they did it. There are a few I've been holding out for so I am going to purchase them Friday. I've added the email below. Greetings, A few Fridays ago, we waived our revenue share to help musicians impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. The Bandcamp community (very possibly including you!) went above and beyond, paying $4.3 million to artists and labels in just 24 hours. It was an inspiring day, and we heard many requests to do it again, so we’re going to do exactly that. This Friday, May 1, we’re once again waiving our revenue share for all sales on Bandcamp, from midnight to midnight PDT. If you’re fortunate enough to be in a position to spare some funds, please join us in providing some much-needed support to the many amazing artists on Bandcamp. Details are here, and please help us spread the word!
  9. I also found Source of Inspiration a bit lackluster than I was expecting it to be. Should probably spin it again. With that said “There Goes the Neighborhood” is KILLER! Gary’s solo on On A Misty Night is my favorite solo of all-time.
  10. Fred Ford Trio - Bear Water
  11. Apple Music App

    Honestly I was very upset when it happened. But I realized there is a lot of music available on Apple Music to get me by and I still have access to the music just not as conveniently. Plus more obscure stuff seems to appear all the time.
  12. Apple Music App

    I didn’t have any issues with Apple Music uploading my library until I surpassed the 10,000 album limit. Then it lost everything and it won’t take everything on one upload. I have to delete any album from Apple Music on my desktop that I want on the cloud and add it back. I’ve made peace with the issue.

  14. The USPS SUCKS

    I have a package that shows delivered to Richmond, CA… I live in Long Beach, CA. No one can say why this happened. The address used by the shipper was correct.
  15. Cigars International deal

    I put in an offer of $100 for a box and they accepted.
  16. Cigars International deal

    https://www.cigarsinternational.com/p/alec-bradley-tempus-maduro-cigars/1412124/#p-67300 Picked up this box last week. Enjoyable smoke
  17. Candid label

    Gary’s solo on “On A Misty Night” is my favorite solo of all time.
  18. Alto Saxophone/Guitar Duos

    Comes out Friday. Tenor/Guitar duo
  19. Gerald Clayton - Bells On Sand Trombone Shorty - Lifted and finally Cody Chesnutt - The Headphone Masterpiece
  20. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    TOCJ-6700 TYCJ-81075 UCCQ-3010 I believe all are unedited Japanese releases. I have the last one that came out in 2017. It's technically a part of the original cds slightly edited but it's really buried in the mix. The run times with it is about 10 secs longer than the mix with Belden's burying the hell out of it. The saw solo is also on Apple Music.
  21. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    I picked up these two CDs, both featuring Vinny Golia. Bobby Bradford and Friends Honor A Great America - Jackie Robinson: Stealin’ Home and Vinny Golia/Matt Smiley/Ron Coulter - Effloresce
  22. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    There is a cd version without edits to the saw. I have it and think I got it off a member here. I think it’s a Japanese release.
