MIDI? It just would have been a backing track, no different from Baba, WGFA, much of Quad, etc. I would doubt that any MIDI was used in '89.

Re: Who - Live In Texas '75

This has been floating around for years...I've seen bits, but never had the whole thing. Supposedly this is a minor improvement over what's circulating, but I believe it is still taken from a copy of the original master. And...some missing audio is obviously spliced in from elsewhere? I honestly fin...

Poll weighting = rigging

(when it favors the left, anyway) When I talked to Tom Jensen, PPP’s director, this morning, he was understandably in the mood to gloat. “These supposed polling experts on the conservative side are morons,” Jensen crowed. “Jay Cost” — the Weekly Standard’s polling expert who’d waged a number-crunchi...

Re: What the fuck is wrong with Wisconsin?

Obama: 53/46 Baldwin: 51/46 On the other hand, state government is back under complete GOP control. In the space of five months, Wisconsin has re-elected a conservative hero, Scott Walker, and a liberal icon, Barack Obama. In the space of two years, it has elected its most conservative senator in de...

Re: Screw Hillary Clinton

Does somebody want to explain this? The Professor also graphically reminds us that on election day 1980 the polls, according to Associated Press, held the election “too close to call”. Reagan won solidly. This is important because as we have written before Mitt Romney has premised his campaign on th...

Re: Audio Fidelity Dylan's Greatest Hits

Doing some more brief listening. I'm not the Dylan expert, but there's definitely a significant difference between the sound of the BoB tracks on the AF and the SACD. I Want You in particular sounds pretty squashed in comparison, suggesting the vintage mix was used. It seems like a lot of Columbia m...

The thread about this disc over at SHTV is appearing and disappearing, getting edited, locked, and unlocked over and over. Luke, am I mistaken or did I see you post that you just received a copy of this disc before the thread was scrubbed and relocked? I'm just curious if it actually features vinta...

Re: Mr. Soul/Bluebird/Merry Go Round/Uno Mundo Mixes

The biggest thing with the machine is it sucks everything off so it doesn't dry back on the record. Even if all of the "dirt" is washed away, having tap water dry back on the record is bad.

Re: Mr. Soul/Bluebird/Merry Go Round/Uno Mundo Mixes

I think a non-worn 45, one that perhaps has never been played on/with another stylus, perfect newish condition stylus with preper weight/setup, these condition can get a styrene 45 to play without often/usual problems of the micro-line with styrene combination. I don't think so. It seems to be base...
