A good Sunday morning to everyone.
I actually love this version of Jockey Full Of Bourbon....Joe does many versions....this is one of my favs, personally
it just lacks the swing, over-produced and the melody drives me crazy. Sounds like a "lawyer blues" band at an open mic night. It just doesn't pay tribute to the original at all, and it doesn't sound like anything Tom would even listen to.
not the same song, but this is how you do Tom Waits covers, in my opinion of course...still true to the original but still adding your own touch without watering it down.
one of my favorite covers..i could listen to this all day
Well, maybe Tom would not listen to it....I do not know and no there is not a small man with a hellish voice singing it, and I mean that as a compliment and not a negative. I love Tom Waits.
That being said, I really think that anytime somebody does a cover of somebody's song, that in itself is paying tribute to that artist, most definitely.
This is what I've been able to work out over the years:
The basic sound is essentially the same between all the models (ignoring the PS500/GS1000i/PS1000, which have further modification to increase the bass) but they do all sound different. Sometimes the difference is pretty subtle, but it's there.
What's great is that you can buy an SR80i and have an amazing headphone for relatively little money. If you like the sound, you can buy one of the higher up models and know you're going to get something that has the same basic signature but sounds better (and with a more luxurious build, of course)
I heard that some of the higher models have holes punched in the felt around the drivers (a common mod for some). Not sure which models though, and how many holes...ever seen that?
Have you taken your PS1K's apart?
Or did you see the holes through the ear cups?
