My Recent Music Play List
« on: March 26, 2018, 10:25:23 AM »
Over the past few days the following Albums/CD’s were on the play list. Phil Keaggy “Acoustic Café”, Steve Winwood ‘’Greatest Hits Live’’, Neil Young “Live at Massey Hall 1971”, Heart “Magazine” (The Original Version), Paul McCartney “Chaos and Creation In the Backyard “, Yes “Union”, The Beatles ‘’Abbey Road’’, Fleetwood Mac ‘’Mystery to Me’’, Rolling Stones “Sticky Fingers’’, and Old Crow Medicine Show “50 Years of Blonde on Blonde’.


Anybody else listening to music as of late they want to share?

Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

Wow, DD.  It seems you have a wealth of musical taste.  I've got Seals & Crofts playing right now, and listened to Twisted Sister "Stay Hungry" album on the way to work.  How's that for variety?

We'd could probably talk all day about music - your tastes may be a little more "micro" than mine.  For example, I never step into the early Fleetwood Mac era.  I love 70's Heart however.  Ann is still the best female rock singer for my money.  (That award goes to Robert Plant on the male side) I am a big Beatles and Stones fan as well, I guess Rubber Soul and Aftermath are a couple of my faves.

Back to my pedestrian side - I never made it as far as Yes "Union".  I do have the "Yes Album", "Fragile", and "Close To The Edge" in my collection.  Also, I have a couple of later Yes albums - 90125 and Big Generator.  But "Union" is deep stuff.

I am toying with trying to do the recent music list regularly as it might give us something else to discuss that most of us enjoy.
 
Heart is a band I have enjoyed ever since my best friend came in on leave and brought a tape he had made from their sound board. The album I referenced here was quickly recalled and litigated and was eventually released with some different tracks.
 
Fleetwood Mac was introduced to me by my old college roommate way back when they where a blues and folk band. Having been exposed to Buckingham and Nicks LP (Wish they would release it) I was excited to see what they would bring to the Mac.
 
Never really listen to Twisted Sister, that genre rarely does something for me, much like Opera, and a some Classical, Country Bluegrass - the talent and musicianship is there but not my cup of tea.
 
I don’t know if my taste are Micro or Macro as I have over 2000 albums and CD’s that run a wide variety of artist and types.

I have a disdain for most of the 80's "hair band" music, yet I still find myself listening to some of it.  Twisted Sister would not be one of my top fave bands, but I do like some of their stuff.

I'm deep in 70's rock, fairly deep in 60's rock, and pretty shallow in early 80's rock.  I started to pull out when every band started to sound like either Metallica or Nirvana.  It's like everything stalled right there.

As far as ''new music'' I find my self listening to more and more Americana

By far, the best investment I've made (musically speaking) was purchasing Amazon Prime UNLIMITED Music.  I literally haven't purchased a CD since then and haven't had a need to.  You get access to the newest and oldest music** (everything mentioned in this thread, so far, is on there).  You can download all the songs you have space for, on your phone and listen without using data when traveling.  I currently have over 100 songs downloaded.  You can use it on smart phones, tablets, pc's, laptops.  It's also available if you have an Amazon Fire Stick.

**one cd that's NOT available is Eagles Hell Freezes Over...which happens to have the best version of Hotel California ever recorded.

If you already have an Amazon Prime account, you automatically have access to Amazon Prime Music for free.  It has a lot of music, but not as extensive as the Unlimited option.

I prefer vinyl the diagram below represents the drop out you get in digital vs analog music, Unless you have an upper end CD player that has 4 or more DACs the clipping noise is more pronounced.
MP services like Amazon Prime clipping (loss of sound) is much worse as it is just a  sample of a digital source.
I like my music to sound like music should was created to sound like.

  signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is the amount of noise generated by the recording’s signal to your speakers. Digital recordings can have a greater signal-to-noise ratio depending on the bit depth of the recording.
What the hell is bit depth, you say? Think of a sound wave in a digital recording format to looking more like a set of stairs, rather than smooth hills
The digital wave must walk up and down stairs, as opposed to smoothly roll over hills. This jump in elevation can create a digital noise.
 
The smooth analog signal matches the recorded sound wave better than the steps of a digital recording.

The only time I prefer digital to analog is when I'm taking an EE exam.  Analog requires calculus.

In terms of sound, I'll take analog every time.

Analog is better quality, until the album/cassette is worn out. I also haven't figured out a way to use a record player in the car.

The other benefit is immediate availability.  We have 4 Amazon Echo devices in our house and all are connected to decent quality external speakers.  I can walk into nearly any room in the house and say "Alexa, play songs by the eagles" or "Alexa, shuffle songe from the album xxxx by Fleetwood Mac", or "Alexa, play my xxxx playlist (that I've custom made" and the music immediately starts playing.

I have to say that I really enjoy Alice Cooper's radio show.
Spins some good tunes, really pretty funny, and great stories of his past.
(e.g. - first time he ever smoked pot was with Jimi Hendrix).
But he's a recovering alcoholic for over 30 years and doesn't shy away from the subject.

They use to make record players for cars
Still playing albums from years ago but then I paid 500 bucks for a straight line tracking turn table around 79 that tracks at 1/4 gr. It takes along time to wear something out.
I run six speakers in my Office, spaced out in front and back. They are Klipsch speakers from the mid 90's at around 2 grand each . If a pin dropped in the studio and it was recorded you can hear it on them. Yes I am a Audiophile junkie.
Glad you like Alexa, the Govt does too.
