    They were alright. Nice, tight harmonies.

    Paul McCartney with some insight into album 1 and 2:

    "Without Pet Sounds, Sgt. Pepper wouldn't have happened... Pepper was an attempt to equal Pet Sounds."

    Seriously though, I bought Pet Sounds and the Beatles albums on Vinyl and I haven't listened to MP3s since.

    When you said "on Vinyl" did you mean you bought the LPs or is this some new app/service? The capital 'V' threw me. If you *did* mean just good old "vinyl" then what are you using as your record player? Good ones are terribly expensive nowadays. And, frankly, there's nothing wrong with MP3s unless you have super ears.

    Reminds of of the '80s and the back rooms at the audio stores where they had the so-called class-A amps (generally one-quarter the buttons and dials of the stuff in the front of the store, and a t three to four times the price). I asked the guy what was the difference between this $400 CD player and that $800 on in the back room. He said the biggest difference was that it had 2 DA (digital to analog) converter chips, one for each channel. A single DA chip was fast enough to convert both left and right channels by switching back and forth, but this created a slight delay between them. He said it was roughly equivalent to sitting about 12 feet away from your main speakers, and then moving one of them an inch towards you. I had a buddy who is an audiophile to whom that actually made a difference.

    So I have my Dire Straits and Beatles and Pink Floyd CDs ripped to MP3 files, and they sound fine. The only LPs I miss are the ones I never got on CD.

    Oh, man, this is a blast from the past. I remember this one from the late '70s at a summer camp. The Rodeo Song. Even if you don't like country, you'll find a use for this song Smile

    I should have asked this before, but is anyone going to bluesfest? As usual, I'm there every day that it's open.
