Shaun, I've been trying to come up with a comment on your wife spending some time with Diana Krall, but I can't stop crying.

Maybe your wifes company needs someone else to cover that territory, I have a lot of sales experience, besides I'm tired of sitting at a desk and providing technical support at my current job

Strangely, I'd be more interested in talking to Elvis Costello than Diana Krall, however, she IS easier on the eyes.

Just got done listnin' to some old Chet Atkins on my dining room system.......

When I was younger; back in the 50s, I started buying a few, like 17, Chet Atkins albums on 33 anna third. I listened to most of them on my new "Stereo", A Motorola box with speakers that swung out like elephant ears. I was very used to what they sounded like as I spent countless hours listening to what was then my most favoritest guitarist in the whole wide world, followed closely by the "Ventures"

Times change and Chets recordings spent many years in the closet of my old room at my parents house. We moved around and they eventually caught up with us during the early days of CDs when we had no way to listen to them. They eventually died in storage and became part of a 250 lb.lump of vinyl and mushy cardboard.

A few months ago my daughter surprized me with a bunch of Chets numbers on a couple of CDs for Fathers Day. Very CoolMost of the peices I knew very well from about %*#@ years ago.

I played them a couple times on the main listening system with M50s and a sub, and thought "remastered for CD"!! They sounded like Chet was in the livingroom right between me and the TV, it really sounded good! But "different" and not as comfortable, something was just not right

Now to the point....

This morning while Granny and the kids were watching something on TV, I decided to give a listen to ol' Chet.
Woah!!....Sounded the same as I remembered it back in 1959!! My dining room system has Brand X speakers, 5 anna guarter drivers and tweets, well reviewed, but not up to the current household standards, and no sub. But they sound much closer to what I remember from years ago on those dime store swing-out speakers, and therefore the cheap speakers sound "Right"!!
Crazy, huh?!

Jack,
The funny thing is, my wife said that Diana Krall did not have a stitch of make-up on, her hair was stringy and looked just 'average'. A lot of those photos you see are obviously touched-up. Elvis looked his usual scruffy self. Sounds like they were very friendly, down to earth people. I am still pissed at my wife for not getting their autographs however those things are not important to her.

I wouldn't mind. Anybody who makes music as wonderful as she does would look beautiful to me, regardless. I've seen her concert DVDs which aren't touched up. She looked good to me!
