re: Is CCR the most underrated band of all time? - pheroy
[quote]And Blues comes from the American South from what I understand, not Blighty [/quote] And most electric blues that inspired the Brits was from black musicians who had migrated north to Chicago etc. So no, Mayall et al are not by some associative leap "southern rock". I'm pretty sure you...

Acoustic Sounds has a 40% sale on a bunch of titles - mostly 180g vinyl but a few SACDs too. I snagged a couple of Dio reissues and a couple of other things. https://store.acousticsounds.com/index.cfm?get=results&saleid=731...

river_man & other jazz fans - just in case you're not aware there is a 3 part doc on Wayne Shorter, on Amazon Prime. Haven't seen it yet, just realized last night that it's available, but very much looking forward to seeing it. [link=(https://www.amazon.com/Wayne-Shorter-Zero-Gravity/dp/B0BX3YRTD...

[quote]So I changed out my rig rack and the rug underneath, nothing else. Now my vocals are way left and I can’t get em centered again. In my experience this usually meant pulling the right speaker more into the room, but it’s not doing the trick. Any ideas? I can’t enjoy shite right now. [/quote] ...

This sounds amazing for a 1959 live record. [link=(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8DjLv0SXecw)]Cal Tjader Monterey Concerts[/link]. Bass is more forward and stronger than usual for that era. Picked up NM for $15, not bad. [img]https://i.imgur.com/xFKz1zz.jpg[/img]...

re: KISS---A new era Begins - pheroy
Came here to check if this was posted/discussed. Decidely mixed feelings on this. Digital avatars and AI will make it possible to recreate performers, and sometimes from older eras. If it's with the artist's involvement and consent that's fine. But some will be done with purely financial motives ...

re: Anyone still buy CDs? - pheroy
I do occasionally but have great slowed down. At my peak in the 1995-2004 timeframe I was buying 10 a month. I don't buy that many a year now, though I've started buying LPs again in the last 2-3 years. There's definitely a different feel when you buy a product, have a physical item with notes & ...

re: Mike Portnoy is back in DREAM THEATER - pheroy
Great news about Portnoy. Did they fire Mangini or was it just a matter of Portnoy being available and wanting to come home? Mangini's comment takes a very high road about this: “I understand Dream Theater’s decision to get Mike Portnoy back at this time,” said drummer Mike Mangini, who took o...

re: iconic musical instruments - pheroy
Good stuff. Lucille was the first thing that came to mind. Dizzy Gillespie's trumpet got accidentally bent and he liked the sound, felt he could hear his playing better and it became legend: [img]https://th-thumbnailer.cdn-si-edu.com/AJblp8B1-fxrWa4jZw5KKt6jTfc=/1000x750/filters:no_upscale()/h...
