I've pretty much stopped buying CDs, and LPs I save for special occasions, so now I'm off to iTunes to find the music I wanna hear. Today's purchase was this overlooked gem:





Check it out! Phil's got chops and pipes, not to mention class and taste. What's not to like?

I was just telling someone that album (the disc itself) was stolen from me years ago. Now out of print.

Can't bring myself to buy a lossy (MP3) copy of it. Or a lossy copy of pretty much anything for that matter.

Tried to download the new Jelly Jam but it's not on itunes or maybe not even out yet. Aristocrats, both Black Country Communion discs, new Steven Wilson too. The AAC format sounds great on all my systems from Bose soundock to my nearfield monitors in a treated studio space.

I downloaded a live show by Bryan Baker last week. It was $7.

I have to be honest and I'm not sure what this says about me, but as long as the sound quality is good, I have no problem with mp3s. I grew up listening to 45s from the '50s and '60s on a ****** cardboard record player and graduated to 8-tracks, etc. My love for music has never been diminished by the sound quality of a format. I'm mostly interested in the music more than the engineering, so I many be the anti-audiophile, although I can really appreciate the exceptional work of recording, mixing and mastering engineers--it's just not my focus.

Yes! One of the only phil albums I don't have! Check out his new live at kegworth and numen with kyle jones the percussionest. Numen has some interesting tunes and is quite a departure! I personally just downloaded Robben Ford's blue moon, and before that She and Him volume 1

These, a few days ago . . .









(I had the latter three on vinyl way back in the year, and it's good to have them back again!)

Part of my aversion is the fact they we are being asked to pay (say 0.99) a song...this is just as much as the superior sound/physical media version.

If they were asking say .10 a track, I wouldn't have a problem with it. But if you are charging virtually the same for an inferior product, I can't be expected to play along and buy it.

I do appreciate hi-fi recordings, but that isn't the only reason I refuse to buy MP3s in general. (also note the move to CDs should have lowered album costs as well, and was touted when the media came out....that didn't really happen either...but that is another story).

Got the new Wilco album called "Whole Love" I believe. Great opening song on that album with a killer solo at the very end. I still have not listened to the whole album yet.

Just downloaded Rockin' the Fillmore by Humble Pie. I was in the mood for some Steve Marriott today.
