    The Album After the Masterpiece

    As much of a proghead that I am, I'm not very much into Yes, however Tales From Topographic Oceans might just be my favorite Yes album, while its predecessor, Close to the Edge, is usually considered their best.

    Black Metal

    Varg is a psycho, but he is very interesting to listen to. He has a YouTube channel called ThuleanPerspective, where he discusses a lot of different matters (sadly, mainly political and phylosophical, many of which it's hard to agree with IMO), but he recently had a video talking about non-metal...

    the most Psychedelic recordings of all times .......

    In my opinion, Germany produced some of the most psychedelic music ever during the late 60's and early 70's. Here are some of my favorites.

    hidden gems of the 70's and 80's

    Oh yeah, love PFM! I wouldn't say they were a hidden gem, though. They had quite a career.

    hidden gems of the 70's and 80's

    My favorite? There are lots. Here are five that popped up into my head right now. I apologize if the page gets hard to load because of the videos. Exmagma - a goofy German space-jazz-rock band (there is a mistake in the band name and the album title in the YouTube video below). Cosmic Circus...

    Allan Holdsworth R.I.P.

    Also in shock. One of my all-time favorite guitarists. Horrible loss.

    A few questions about Tascam 4-tracks

    Haha, thanks so much! I'm very happy you took notice of the Manuel Göttsching inspiration, he is one of my favorite guitarists of all time. On this track, I experimented with mixing it down to the computer from a PHONES output rather than LINE OUT. Again, thanks a ton for very kind words.

    A few questions about Tascam 4-tracks

    I totally forgot to let you all know - I happily bought a mint 424 MKII from a TGP member shikawkee a few weeks ago. It's a splendid machine - I think I already have more or less learned how to use it properly. I really love working with it - loads of fun all around. Even waiting for the tape to...

    A few questions about Tascam 4-tracks

    Thanks a ton for answers, everybody! I really appreciate your time and feedback. I will be aiming for 414 MKII models (or well-preserved older models, where I can be sure it should work flawlessly) based on what you guys said regarding age of these machines and how it might influence their...

    A few questions about Tascam 4-tracks

    Hey gang, I’ve been wanting to get a 4-track tape recorder for the last few months. Soon, I will be visiting the US, so I can pick one up. I like recording on a computer, but I also would love to have an analog, old-school workstation, because of a few reasons. I really like the warm, soft...

    Jaki Liebezeit Has Died.

    What a terrible loss. Jaki is one of my all-time favorite drummers. I have just finnished listening to Future Days - what an excellent drummer. Can would not have been the same band without him. One man could go from funky fusion grooves, you could hear on early 70's Miles Davis records, to...

    M-Audio M-Track II vs. Presonus Audiobox vs. ... (help needed)

    Have you had any bigger problems with it? If so, what were the most "problematic"? Or were there any flaws that are worth taking into account?

    M-Audio M-Track II vs. Presonus Audiobox vs. ... (help needed)

    Hi TGP, I've been looking to get an audio interface recently, mainly for recording my guitar into the computer (eventually, my amp through the mic). I don't do vocals almost at all. I record into a 2008 MacBook with (promise you won't laugh) GarageBand. Studio quality is not something I need...

    Recommend me some relaxing, ethereal music

    Some really nice stuff posted so far! I especially like the Miles Davis and Eno recommendations. I'll throw in a few "krautrock" favorites of mine. Popol Vuh's In Den Gärten Pharaos is one of the most relaxing albums I have ever heard. It has it all - slowly evolving drones, ethnic rhythms...
