Your Not-So-Obvious Best Fidelity LPs
Sorry, one more: larryi mentioned those live Carnegie Hall Belafonte LPs.   I have to concur.   Also, Belafonte recorded the song “My Old Paint” in ‘63, and this vocal track is on my short list of “All-Time Best Sounding Vocal Tracks.”   
Your Not-So-Obvious Best Fidelity LPs
It’s fun getting an LP because you like the music and being really surprised how good it sounds.   I found an original U.S. ‘Frisco Mabel Joy by Mickey Newbury for 25 cents at a thrift store about a decade ago.   The sound quality almost seemed l... 
"The Mystery Of Sound Is Mysticism"
@mapman: “The mystery of high end audio is way more mysterious than that of music.” This is like saying the functionality of a Cuisinart is more “mysterious” than the experience eating amazingly good food provides. a) the experience of enjoying ... 
Cost Incurred to Achieve a Vinyl LP Replay
If the OP has a particular neurodivergence that compels them to capitalize words that shouldn't be capitalized, I don't wish to be rude or insensitive.   I will say trying to read the OP made my head hurt.   Hard to understand what is being expr... 
Anyone listen to Music on a FM tuner anymore?
@pwerahera Go Nuggs!!  
Anyone listen to Music on a FM tuner anymore?
I love my handsome, fully refurbished, fully recapped Marantz 2285B.   The fact that is has an FM tuner of relatively good quality is cool.   Using that spinning wheel with the embossed(?) rubber for dexterity, seeing the glowing tuner display and...

I also like that right after Dylan made that comment, Bradley asked him if he thinks he could write something like that again, and he said, “(mm mm)” 😆 (as in, the ‘mm mm’ sound of ‘no’).  That lack of hubris, expressed so bluntly, is great.   He’...

@stuartk I love that interview he gave with Ed Bradley in the mid-‘00s. I’d always perceived Dylan to be guarded in interviews, and in that one he seemed so unguarded and forthright.  Bradley asked him, “Do you ever look at music that you’ve writt...

Smokey Robinson wrote these songs: - “Who’s Loving You?” - “It’s Growing” - “Get Ready” - “Wonderful Baby” - “After You Put Back the Pieces (I’ll Still Have a Broken Heart)” - “Since I Lost My Baby” - “Way Over There” - “The Hunter Gets Captured B... 
Your method for discovering great music.
I read as much as I can;  - biographies, interviews, articles on my favorite artists to see who their favorite artists are - top music/pop culture outlets and writers (Pitchfork, Flavorwire, Stereogum, Consequence of Sound, Jenn Pelly, Jazz Monroe... 
Do all remastered vocals in vinyl albums have been 'corrected" with auto tune?
Auto-Tune is a brand of software developed by Antares Audio Technologies, yet it the word is always used to mean, "digital pitch correction software," which is like referring to your vacuum as "a Hoover."  It was made in the '90s to allow easy fi... 
"The Mystery Of Sound Is Mysticism"
I don’t wish to be coarse, but the use of the word “mysticism” in this conversation is somewhat unfortunate in my opinion. I provided the Oxford Languages definition of the word above, and I will leave it at that. I am keen on discussing music, an... 
"The Mystery Of Sound Is Mysticism"
@mijostyn  Obviously, my point that music, as a thing in human experience, is only partially explained when it is jotted down on a staff, still stands.   Just because we can read The Brothers Karamazov doesn’t mean we can scientifically explain t... 
"The Mystery Of Sound Is Mysticism"
Music and art can’t be reduced to digits on a page. At least, it can’t be adequately summarized entirely in that way. The page that has a bunch of figures and data on it is only tangentially related to music and art as a whole. mys·ti·cism /ˈmi...
