Linn are selling 24bit audio files that sound almost as good as their record decks if played through powered speakers costing 36 grand a pair and a receiver gizmo that costs 15 grand.

I'll take two!

back on the subject of CDs/vinyl/ipods etc, it struck me today that listening through in-ear headphones on an ipod/mp3 also reveals subtle nuances (if that's the right word) in the recording which might otherwise be missed.  Take Ankle Shackles - towards the end there is a wineglass type noise (a la Lone Pigeon Wineglass Finale) in the background and what sounds like someone opening a can of fizzy drink in the closing few bars... Do you hear them when listening to vinyl (without headphones) - I'm not sure as I don't have track on any vinyl...?

I'm an audiophile - always have been...which is why I've never subscribed to those ipod / compressed mp3 thing-ma-files...

So I like my records a lot.

But they're not much good if I'm asleep by the time Ankle Shackles comes on... I miss Irn Bru though

Usual evening in my house: Kids in to bed, downstairs for 9.00, wife asleep in front of goggle box and me snoring with my headphones on by 9.30. Eventually I just gave up on the headphones and embraced falling asleep to Downton Abbey as well... Looking forward to rocking out with my record deck when I retire...


...Might even try to venture out of the house...

Tell you something though (just so I don't lose all face) - I just came across "how I won my stripes" from earlier in the year. Fuck me, that's good.

the whineglass is much more prominent
on the original recording, which, imho, is
much, much better than the finished product.
still, that's me. wonderful song.

Mine arrived today! Lovely cover art in real life - especially the leaves.

Haven't listened to it yet mind - turntable catastrophe :(

My copy arrived this morning - lovely stuff, although 'tell it how it is' coincided with my newborn filling a nappy, so I'm not sure if that constitutes a review.
