Had to do a three and a half hour drive Tuesday to see some employees in another city. I wanted some lively driving tunes so I bought a few new CDS. Two are worth mentioning.

1st. New York Cool: Live at the Bluenote
I'm not a huge jazz fan but sometimes I get the bug. Lots of slightly tweaked songs from Donald Harrison, Ron Carter, and Billy Cobham

2nd. I saved this one for the drive home last night because I knew I'd be tired and need some energy. Airbourne: Runnin Wild
I can't say enough about this one. Sometimes you can just feel that the band is having fun doing what they do. It's high energy, classic style, hard rock in it's purist form!!!

Not a single song disappoints and not a single token ballad to be found to slow down the adrenaline. I played the whole thing 4 times in a row, the whole way home, until finally going to the radio for the weather. Played a couple of songs one last time before I hit my driveway.

I'd say they were heavily influenced by AC/DC but I'm betting that that is already a cliche.

Well, here's a line-up every classical fan should listen to so that they can convert to rock \:\) . My 1995 mix recorded on Maxell UDII tape:

- all day and all night
- bad moon rising
- queen jealousy (by Mood Jga Jga...my next door neighbors in Winnipeg from a long time ago)
- born in the usa
- life in the fast lane
- rock the casbah
- witchy woman
- no sugar baby now (by my good Calgary friend Back Alley John)
- outside
- you really got me
- down on the corner
- gimme my money
- born to run
- heartache tonight
- peaceful easy feeling
- st. louis blues
- one thing leads to another
- she's too good for me
- jack & diane
- maggie m'gill (by my all time favs...The Doors)
- you make me real
- LA woman

We're rocking to this right now on my 1990 Yamaha tape deck. The remote still has the original batteries in in from 18 years ago even though I've listened to at least 1000 hours on it.

The best music, on the best speakers...coming to you from Mojo's Dojo. Too bad Johnk can't tune in \:\) .

My 600 got a great work-out tonight. I can't believe how well the bass and the channel separation has been preserved on the tape!

It's sad, but I don't have a tape deck anywhere anymore. I used to love making mix tapes, and back then I actually took the time to make covers. Now I'm too lazy to even write on the CDs I make.

I found the sound out of my tape deck was easier to listen to than out of my CD player. It had a "softer" more pleasant quality probably due to higher odd order harmonic distortion.

At this point, it's only a matter of time until someone comes on and praises the sound quality of their 8-track, saying it is much better than CDs.

Poor CDs. Doesn't anyone like them?

I remember 8-tracks very well. Just like Bose. No highs...no lows.
