  1. Q: How do you get a bass player to turn down? A: Put sheet music in front of him. -As a bass player, I say....bring it on, ya pansies.
  2. "Find the Cost of Freedom" from CSNY - '4-Way Street' "There is a Reason" from Alison Krauss and Union Station's album 'Live'
  3. My shot is for 'Swingin' the Blues' by the Count Basie Orchestra. The subtlety of the mix on " Li'l Darlin' " is phenomenal to me. After that, I'd go for Sinatra's "In The Wee Small Hours" as a recording masterpiece.
  4. I wasn't aware of it but, thanks to you, now I am. Set to record for future binge-a-thon. Thanks for the heads-up!
  5. I stay far far away from Behringer. Too much IP theft in their early days for my taste.
  6. So no school orchestra can play Dvorak's "New World Symphony" (aka 'From the New World') because a theme from it was originally used for the spiritual 'Going Home'? Brian, by your argument, 'From the New World' would be banned. The lyrics aren't sung in Dvorak's interpretation either. I have issue with this decision - not from a religious or constitutional perspective, but from an artistic one. Virtually all music is influenced by the composer's identity as a person, including their personal history, their views on social issues of the day, their morality and their faith (or lack thereof). When one starts banning a piece of art (in this case, a theme without lyrics) because of its perceived intent, the next logical step is to view the composer in the same light. Next, Dvorak's other works could be judged by the same broad brush that currently paints Nugent or Bono as 'musical extremists'. The art is no longer the topic of judgement, but the composer is. I find this to be a distressing slippery-slope. The theme to 'How Great Thou Art' is a traditional Swedish melody. Adding the words was done long after the original melody was composed. I just find it troubling that a melody can be refused because of later additions to it (that aren't being used in the disputed presentation).
  7. It'll be good to see you over at the Old Homestead, Craig. A few of us old salts (and a few new souls) have been keeping the Lowdown active - it'll be good to see a revitalization of the MP forums.
  8. Cool! Another entire group of people and musicians to look down on! Awesome!
  9. Grateful Dead: Workingman's Dead (1970) American Beauty (1970) Grateful Dead (Skull & Roses) (1971) Europe '72 (1972) Michael Jackson: Off The Wall (1979) Thriller (1982) Bad (1987) The Band: Music from Big Pink (1968) The Band (1969) Stage Fright (1970) Cahoots (1971) Rock of Ages (1972) *note: Next should be 'Northern Lights/Southern Cross' (a masterpiece, imo), but 'Moondog Matinee' got in the way and spoiled the sequence.
  10. Not an engineer, but it would make sense to get different 'ranges' to fill the vocal overlaying. A bit more 'room depth' actually recorded instead of modified digitally or via effects. That's my theory, at any rate. Take it for what it's worth.
  11. Y'know, this would be a much better forum if you all would take a break from acting like cretins to each other. I won't bother to come back.
