Pinned post

Arrived here from walkman.social which is closing down, so will introduce myself again….

Hi all - by way of a quick my name is Jon and I ran/run Revival Records for more than 20 years now - started off as a digital archival/restoration service but now mainly just a collector and enthusiast of vinyl, tapes, 8-tracks etc.

I'll mostly be posting reviews here and finds.

Glad to be on board!

1994 News report of Aerosmith releasing the first digital only single.

Downloading the 4.3MB WAV would take around an hour.

Is there a future in this, and more importantly, is there any money in it?

Audacity 3.2.0 is out and now has (among other things):

- real time non-destructive audio effects (I think they are always pre-fader)
- VST3 support
- An integration with an audio sharing website (audio.com) - it thankfully does allow anonymous use, but you need to click the X in top right corner - it nags you to create an account.

Been after this LP for a while now, several years, but really hard to find in the UK for some reason. Anyway, found one, and it is now mine :)

I'll probably do a write up on the old blog at some stage....

Please RT this poll!

I inadvertently ran this experiment at work the other day with an offhand comment on Slack. I'm curious if the results will be similar here in fedispace.

Without searching, do you know what all the items in this list have in common?

* The Piper at the Gates of Dawn
* A Saucerful of Secrets
* Ummagumma
* Atom Heart Mother
* Meddle
* Wish You Were Here
* Animals

So my own band, #Liotia, has it's first gig since the whole pandemic thingamajig tonight but seeing as I don't think any of you live nearby I won't trouble you with that.

Instead, here's a video we did pre-Covid, for no other reason than some mindless self promotion.

Enjoy yourself Toots!

Another Who, Abbey Road half speed mastered LP has landed -this is the Record Store Day 2022 release which was delayed from earlier on in the year. Not my favourite Who era but these releases are very nice. #thewho #vinyl

@atomicpoet #Vinyl offers the best value for money user experience.

Get the disc out of its sleeve. Carefully, only touch the paper label! Switch on the amp and the player and listen to the speakers getting power. Click, hummmmmmm. And then, ever so gently, lower the needle on the vinyl. Warm crackling noises. It's electric poetry set in motion. The music is almost and afterthought.

Watched Stewart Lee’s Snowflake last night. An absolute master of his art. Seen him live several times now and he just maintains the standard every time. Brilliant.
