A terrible analog tape restoration, while the original CD sounded good ? A song that doesn't suffer from overcompression ?... Well if you...
Ahh thats better, Hilarious!

Perhaps it would be good for audiophiles to live in the Arctic Circle. I think I am losing touch with reality as well. Can someone post a graph of something, anything, quickly please!

Dear immtbiker, Could you elaborate on your reference to a refrigerator? Is this a new way to cool your valve amps?
Curtis Mayfield, Legend, RIP. YouTube - Curtis Mayfield - Superfly This dude is baaad. and he ain't just Fly, He's Superfly, yeah!

For me this was the Godfathers finest filmed at...
Watch this clip of Billy Preston (RIP Legend), and tell me do his moves and the riffs of the band remind you of anyone? Billy Preston 1965 YouTube - Billy Preston - Short Fat Fanny (1965) BTW He was in Little Richard's touring band when he was 14 with none other than Mr JB himself and Jimmy Hendrix. Can you imagine seeing them live!
Geno Washington (UK 60's soul legend) has been touring UK recently. He does a few James Brown covers as well as his own and him and the band are tight! You can pick up some of his gigs on youtube if you missed them. This is his Album from the 60's, gotta be one of the best names for a funk Album ever (although it was mostly soul). He also did an Album called Hipsters Flipsters and Finger Bopping Daddies. I have been wandering, what is the earliest Funk song? I guess...
What I omitted to say was on the first day in April I actually soldered together two 2ft length wires from fuses. It does make a huge improvement to the sound, I am feeling a big PRAT. It is obvious why this has happened as I have soldered 24 fuses together in series, the benefits of audiophile fuses will have increased by 24X. I am going to try directional fuses next, does anyone know where I can get some in bulk at a reasonable price? Do they all have to face the same...
