I put all of Berger's foreign-language nonsense into Google Translate , one nugget at a time, and I am pretty sure the Interwebs police are coming to put the beatdown on me for abusing their servers.

I haven't heard back from him yet.


Fun Fact:

I cannot remember talking to this person, much less his name.

I'm not 100% sure why we/I are doing this vinyl revival thing. The sound is not as good as digital obviously. But there is something soothing, calming about audible noise.

I could do this in the interim- I could rip "Dig Here..." and HD to the digital domain and apply a speed adjustment so Uncle Terry et al* don't sound sad and like he's just getting over the flu. That analog sound is really appealing and sounds just as good to me when ripped to digital.


*Aunty Jerry? that sounds about right

Thank you for the advice and you reminded me of what I would like to do, if possible. Of course they sell new turntables and record players, but the quality is low and these will just eat your record grooves. I wonder if any companies specialize in selling new turntables of high quality like in the old days so we don't have to fool with rehabbing 30 year old units. These would not be some crazy audiophile units, but I would pay $200-$300 for a good modern turntable.

I think I just now figured it out. Some guys on tour play the bass because someone needs to fulfill that roll. Tim was a Bass Player. That's what he did.

Thank you for the advice. It is 30 years old and may need some maintenance. I've also been hitting all the thrift shops looking for old turntables.

It's really lovely, WayneB which is why I held back on descriptions so you could enjoy the unboxing when it comes. What tier did you pledge? The whole enchilada?

Another note- I may have posted this before- my turntable is a silver linear-tracking front-loading Radio Shack one I bought around 1985. It worked well the last time I used it (a year or two ago). But I may have noted here when I played "Dig Here..." it was too slow. My theory is that I never before tried to spin a piece of heavyweight vinyl on it , thus I never noticed the defect. I'll need to get a better one.

Couldn't wait! Just opened it. It smells good.

Be still my heart! PICTURE DISK

Audioris- thank you so much. This is beyond amazing. Smile

If the LRRH package is anywhere this good I'm on board for it, also.

Got it this morning! Haven't opened it yet... I think it came via tortoise, but it was an especially athletic one.

De-lamination really kicks in when you hit about age 45.

In the mid-1980's when I was a teenager (that was about 247 years ago) I got a TDK T-shirt in the mail. It had the most intoxicating cherry odor. Next time we do a reissue (maybe an Eddies disk) we could scent the T-shirts also; maybe something sideways like Pricey Yacht Wax or Stale Berger (RIP Tim) or Jerry's Extra Extra Strength Minty Scope.

Thank you for the heads up. Note- the top pledge is a cool $300.00! For that I think Derri comes to your house and washes your car.

Just had a thought- it would be nice to have a good bio on Tim. There may be one on the DA website but I am not aware of it. I think we fans would like this; I would.
