"I've heard of one significant artist of that era who has a garage full of old recordings. I guess it's like looking back at old snapshots of when you were a kid, how often do we go there?"

I think you're thinking of Frank Zappa. He even kept super-old consumer reel-to-reel tapes of him and his old high school band, right up to the very last things he ever recorded. His estate's archivist has been transferring as much as humanly possible to digital. The Roxy shows have recently been released as a box, so I suppose there's incentive to keep it all in some shape.

For the most part, however, the stuff drifts. Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull) frequently talked about how hunting down tapes for a proper Aqualung remaster came down to petitioning and rummaging through old studios, the record label, the different distributors for Chrysalis records (first Warners, then CBS, then EMI). For a band entity on that level to have that much difficulty is telling.

Measure that against DA, which rarely stayed with the same label for very long, and you can envision the level of drift that's occurring.

The tracks sound great. There's several of the archival tracks that I've heard before, but in different forms (Shirley, Goodness, primarily). Others that I've heard were suboptimal (a skipping "After All These Years" and a too-hot "Cinema Girl" on YouTube), and still more I've never heard before. Taken as a whole, the second disc is like getting almost a brand new album. Fun stuff.

I'm in for the 3 (4?) disc CD, but I'd like to get the LPs too. Don't want to change up my pledge so my question is: will there be overstock of the record I can buy from the site?

Two different Mike Stones. I believe the Mike Stone you're thinking of was the producer for Asia...not the same guy.

Good to know.

Streaming...agh. I don't like it. I like to have more control over what I listen to and how I listen to it. But fighting it has been like facing the tidal wave with the little sand bucket. It's coming. Not much to do about it.

And sales-wise? If you're an independent musician, streaming revenue is the joke after you've been kicked in the groin.

Oh, you'd be surprised. I know people who have sworn off all their pre-Nirvana favorites just like they swore off black & white movies.

In case anyone's interested, I popped a review up on Popdose.com this morning. The long and short is that this album has never sounded better. The mastering job is so detailed I swore I thought it was a remix (Eric and Tom said absolutely not).

If you were afraid to jump back in because you thought it was too '80s, it's time to give VH another shot.

The first encounter is visual, when you see him, saying goodbye to Winslow Arizona, probably.

The second encounter is when you experience phenomena -- extra shoegaze in the guitars, gravy mysteriously appears on your plate, things like that.

The third encounter...is when you meet him.

Just got the "Changeless/Wood Between The Worlds" 45. Waiting on "Dancing On Light/Song of Innocence" and "I've Got An Idea/Rodeo Drive" to show.

Many years ago, the band XTC did a 45s box with their Apple Venus Vol. 1 record. The Smithereens did it too with A Date With The Smithereens, and Joe Jackson's I'm The Man also came out as a 45 box.

Considering how tight things are for getting Kickstarters started and completed, this is clearly a pipe dream...but it would be cool to choose two songs from each DA album that did not get onto vinyl and perhaps formulate a 45s box out of those.

Again -- pipe dream. The cost would be prohibitive for both sides, but it's fun to think about.

Okay, so this needs a refreshment, not just a top off.

Barring what you want to happen in reissues, what recordings should be reissued aside from personal preference? With the reissue of Vox Humana I guess Fearful Symmetry is a safe lock. So, even though it is out of sequence, I do believe Swirling Eddies "Outdoor Elvis" requires attention. The CD was good by the standards of its time but is in dire need of remastering.

For LPs, it's a toss up. Kalhoun would be the first of the DA albums after Darn Floor to never have been on the format, and it is a standard length for vinyl, making the process more streamlined. And yet Motor Cycle was constructed (in my opinion) in the vein of classic rock albums both conceptually and musically.

One is a good fit. The other philosophically demands it.

Only if you have the warming, cooling sensation of Ben Gay deep heating rub by your side.

Man...we need some conversation up in here.

I have the "Distance and Direction" 45 from Doppelganger, and I think a 45 from Alarma came out, but I could not tell you what the tracks were. There was also a Swirling Eddie release out there once, I think.

Wow, that's a bad turn of events. I hope this is not an allusion to why there haven't been any other Lost Dogs projects recently either. I'd hate to think the band is sidelined because of inside tensions.

A radio disc is like the "Motor Cycle Tracks" CD from when Motor Cycle came out. It is an interview prepared for radio broadcasters should they choose to run it as a special. Usually there are also the songs deemed "singles" and radio edits included.

For me, 2014 isn't going to be nearly as fun as 2013 was, and it was because of this album. May we not have too wait as long for something else.

True, but you have the original in case of a hard drive crash, and that is an aspect of CD culture I think digital file buyers don't get. A lot of early adopters didn't use their machines as regularly as they do now. Some people use their phones for everything. One day, it just stops working or the hard drive freezes, or you forget your password to access the cloud.

It's nice to know the complete package is still somewhere as a precaution.
