I dusted off my 'Gary Moore - Still Got The Blues' CD & ran it through my M3s.

I forgot what a stellar blues guitar player that he was. Although the content of the whole album is great, 'Still Got the Blues & 'Midnight Blues' (the one that made him famous) stand out for me. It's not the most dynamic mix, but quite entertaining if you like electric blues.

It's unfortunate that last year he left us before his time...

I received Bible Belt from Diane Birch after seeing her on an episode of Daryl's House. I've listened to it several times and I'm really digging the retro 1970s Carole King vibe.

I haven't listened to it on the big system yet.

Be honest - you just bought it for the album photo, amiright? wink

Her next album should be called "Big Doe Eyes is Back". Hubba hubba.

Yes, I'll admit that I think she's cute.

Yes, that makes me think Charles already knows about her.

I like that video/song all right. Pleasant enough. Where'd you hear about them?

Also, I'm not sure about ume. For some reason, it's not ringing a bell.

I thought that I'd post this here as well - to enable it to be more easily found:

Well, I dusted off one of my vintage CDs that I use for evaluating my music systems - TELARC's Time Warp - to run through my newly upgraded audio system.

Amazingly it is still available despite being released in 1984. This CD was recorded when digital was still in its infancy & according to the liner notes:

"During the recording of the digital masters & the subsequent transfer to disc, the entire audio chain was transformerless. The signal was not passed through any processing device (ie, compression, limiting, or equalization) at any step during production". "The digital information was not subject to any analog intersteps, thus preserving the integrity of the original digital master".

This indeed is an uncommon recording as most are not done without manipulation of some kind these days. If you want to hear a production that has been absolutely not altered, this is a good one. It is really too bad that TELARC is no more (swallowed up by Concord).

If you get it, be sure to heed TELARC's Warnings - "Damage could result to speakers or other components if the musical program is played back at excessively high levels". That warning probably would still be valid today although our modern gear is more robust.

They were on a short music video on a local channel. Strange tune. The rest of their stuff sounds like garbage to me though. The lead singer and guitarist of UME is a hot little blond gal, so I just assumed you had their CD. smile I got their Phantom's CD a while ago and like it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mfB0X0-E-c
