oh yeah . i think a lot happens in times of political upheaval. things come out. before that, you'd probably need to look to some tribes people & what they've been doing for centuries if not longer. i don't doubt that, some explorer bought back a weird instrument, gave it to someone & they played it in a different way to it's intended purpose.

i take it for an audiophile recording it must be the best mastered recording, probably of a music you can listen 'deep' into (ie: not too much going on, so you can contrast the instruments, sounds with the more quieter (silence even))
me, i want music that takes me on a journey, plays on my emotions & makes me think. the recording should be 'good enough' quality...

a record company (label) can do that if they handle recordings. but yeah, i always though people call CDs "CDs" & records, "records" - whatever their age. some DJs like to call them vinyl, so they can distance themselves from the record buying public. even further when they say "ooooh, i have the acetate of that!"

my god this is frightening, even the yooof that drooled over car stereo boom boxes are gone! this is quite worrying if the yooof of today (excluding the ones in here ) can't comprehend music through any decent speakers is it now time to stop making music for unapreciative chavs?!
