charlot - Last Dance

https://charlotontheweb.bandcamp.com/album/-

 

Currently listening to this new free single from charlot. I really like it.

 


 

Tim Hecker - Virgins

 

Now listening to this for the second time. Highly recommended!

 


 

みじぴんP (MIJIPIN) - 月下の廻廊 (Corridor Under the Moon)

 

月明かりの下、惑星の上で、魂は廻り続ける。
人は、月明かりの下で人を想う。
月は、惑星の営みを照らす。

 

Under the moon, on the planet, the soul repeated reincarnation.
People love the people under the moon.
The moon illuminates the life of the planet.

 

みじぴんP (MIJIPIN) - SILVER RAIN

 

冷たい雨が銀色に視界を濡らす。
灰色の街に輝きを与えて行く。
今、失いながら生きることを恐れはしない。
新しい時間を、君がこの心の中に刻んだから。

 

Cold rain wets the view on silver.
Cold rain gives a shine to the city of gray.
Now, I'm not afraid to lose.
Because you gave me in the heart, a new life.

 

Felt the need to hear some MEIKO, so I got these on iTunes. My first time listening to MIJIPIN. Must say that I'm pleased with these, very easy to listen to. And I don't mean that in a disparaging way, obviously. Something simple was exactly the thing I needed right now.

Hot Tuna

 

 

 

Hot Tuna is really four or five different bands comprised of a variety of personnel over the years including Pete Sears,

Harvey Sorgen, Sammy Piazza, Michael Falzarano, Papa John Creach Jerry Garcia and even Marty Balin for a brief moment.

 

But the core elements behind Hot Tuna are Jorma Kaukonen on guitar and Jack Casady on bass, both members then of The

Jefferson Airplane, while here they deliver acoustic country blues .

 

 

 [Original recording(1970)

remastered(1996)Live]

The better audio gear that many here are blessed with, really uncovers the flaws in remasters. They really need to be done with some attention to detail. So I for one am a bit skeptical about remasters (even coming from the likes of Mr. Page). But I must admit you have piqued my curiosity. Perhaps I shall give this one a listen.

 

 

I totally agree with you, remasters are hit and miss, the worst are when you get a remaster and they compress the heck out of it.  I have to say I didn't fall in love with the CD remasters, but the FLAC are simply better in every respect.  In addition to the higher resolution, they are less compressed.  It's really fun, though sometimes you do chuckle at the obvious studio work with sliders and stuff that were technology limits of the day.  That aside, some of the recordings are really pretty amazing.

 

Another great set of remasters was the King Crimson by Steven Wilson, they really nailed that.  Red is one of my favorite albums and hearing it so clean and clear was a real treat.

+1 Crimson are my fav prog band. Wilson also done a great job on aqualung. Do you know if he did Larks tungues? i think that album sounds amazing. The song "easy money" is one of the best songs for headphones.

The King Crimson 40th anniversary series, apart from the tracks for which the multi-track master tapes are no longer available, have been completely remixed by Robert Fripp and Steven Wilson in addition to being remastered by Robert Fripp and Simon Heyworth, so naming them as an example in a discussion focused on just remastering is perhaps a bit unfounded given how radically different an entirely new mix can sound simply by its nature. Of course if the intent is to recreate the original mix as closely as possible, that's a bit of a gray area, but unless there was something technically seriously wrong with the original 2-track master apart from the mix itself, it's hard to see why one would do that. Typically the goal when doing a new mix is to improve on the original, not just mimic it as best as you can. I feel the fans of the 40th anniversary series could call those good reissues but not necessarily good remasters. Not saying they aren't well mastered, but given that those exact mixes have never been to my knowledge heard with different mastering, there hardly is a good point of reference.

 

Well, since I mentioned it, since some of the tracks originate from the 2-track master tapes, and have therefore not been remixed but only remastered, comparing those to previous CD issues would be a fair comparison. If someone has done such a comparison, it might be interesting to hear your findings, even if only out of curiosity more than anything else. This reminds me I actually have to get the debut album on vinyl at some point…
