A perfect song? What are your choices?
“Moon River” - Mancini/Mercer “Duchess” - Scott Walker ”Rubberband Man” - Bell/Creed ”Forget Me Nots” - Washington/Rushen/McFaddin ”Tecumsah Valley” - Van Zandt ”Two for the Road” - Mancini (I prefer the stunning instrumental version on the R... 
Help…looking to buy turntable
I’m assuming your $1200 budget includes cartridge.  I would consider it wise to get the best possible TT, and then get the best possible cartridge without going overboard.  In other words, don’t put a souped-up engine in a Ford Pinto.   The sugges... 
Politics and Music
@sns This is a good post: “Your agenda clear, always inculcated belief system based on indoctrination for liberals, truth for conservatives, inevitable zero sum game.   And talk about repugnant, forcing victims of rape and incest to carry chi... 
Politics and Music
“Political.” Just another needless category.  There’s more than one way to skin a cat.  The cat-skinning, in this case, is artistic expression.  Some artists may choose to express themselves in ways that are more routinely an explicit commentary ... 
Please Support Music Education
It is indeed cognitively beneficial to study music, to say nothing of how it can be fun, enjoyable, teach valuable teamwork/social skills, and give some kids a reason to want to go to school in the first place. Just because a kid is not destined ... 
I don't want to beat a dead horse but I'm bugged.
I thought it was well understood that measurements are a valid place to start from, but by no means the be-all-end-all.  Ears are. People sometimes prefer the sound of things that are measurably “worse” than other things, i.e. analog vs. digital,... 
The Music at AXPONA 2022
@larsman +1 “That rock and roll, with it’s primitive, cacophonous noise, just some rube screaming about sex and debauchery, over a crudely-played I-IV-V chord progression.  That’s not music! Just garbage! Noise!!”      
Songs that sound like Dylan
Lou Reed and Randy Newman have Dylan-esque delivery.  
Great Rock Bassists your Top 10.Rock not Jazz. But Hey what about Reggae
@sidog1460  Sorry, when Louis didn’t crop up in your initial comment on my picks, I wondered if that name may have escaped you, clearly it didn’t. I am not familiar with Mark Adams or Slave.  Thanks for the top.  I’ll have to check it out.  
Great Rock Bassists your Top 10.Rock not Jazz. But Hey what about Reggae
@sidog1460 Have you ever checked out Louis Johnson on these songs: ”Strawberry Letter 23,” “Stomp!” - Brothers Johnson ”Get On the Floor” - Michael Jackson ”The Dude” - Quincy Jones Just ridiculously great stuff. I personally don’t view popul... 
Great Rock Bassists your Top 10.Rock not Jazz. But Hey what about Reggae
@stuartk The way described those kinds of guitar players is exactly the way I feel about them.   
Great Rock Bassists your Top 10.Rock not Jazz. But Hey what about Reggae
@stuartk I’m rejecting any iteration of Stanley Clarke I’ve ever heard.  If you have any suggestions, I’m all ears. I find that particular type of dentist’s-office-waiting-room smooth-jazz Muzak unendurable.  It makes my soul hurt. I mentioned h... 
Why should audiophile deniers be allowed on an audiophile forum?
@nonoise  These days, both sides of the aisle are advocating censorship.  It’s one thing to get it from one side, but now we’re getting from both sides.  This is a disturbing trend, to say the least. I consider it quite fair that someone, in lig... 
Great Rock Bassists your Top 10.Rock not Jazz. But Hey what about Reggae
In no particular order: Louis Johnson (my personal favorite)  James Jamerson  Victor Wooten, Jaco Pastorius, Flea, (I despise their music but their skill is undeniable)   Stanley Clarke will get the Celine Dion treatment here - the music is si... 
Best Rock Drummers
No one is more satisfying to listen to than Bonham.  Not even close.  His drum tracks are songs unto themselves. Similar to Hendrix.  We could name many with greater technical proficiency, but none who sound as good.
