yes most definitely...
that would be awesome.....
thanks...

Thanks for your reply.  I'll give it a little bit more time for other replies to filter in.

I just don't want to violate any written or unwritten copyright issues and I expect this forum will have the collective knowledge to guide me here.

It's a great MP3 album that he released freely after the loss of a friend.  It's quite appropriate that I now listen to it and think of Jim.

I ran into Jim's MP3 album "Spectre Looms Suddenly" randomly yesterday.  I found it quite emotive.

Would anyone mind if I posted it again?  I Googled it and Jim's site is no longer up.

My next post should take me well over 150,000 files and  perhaps over 15,000 albums.

7 yrs ago, I lost ~15,000 vinyl records in New Orleans to Hurricane Katrina.  Now I have nearly that number of albums on three hard drives.  I'm amazed at how far we have come.

Everything and Nothing / Record Store Day 4/21/12
« on: April 21, 2012, 12:14:54 PM »
I decided to "celebrate" Record Store Day by going to the legendary Waterloo Records in Austin.  I felt energetic and decided to get to the store about a half-hour early.  Much to my surprise and consternation, the line wrapped around the entire city block nearly to the door of the store.   I was just as surprised to walk into the store about 10 minutes after opening to nearly standing room only as people slid up and down each aisle to look at all the vinyl releases that came out today including David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen, Abba, Captain Beefheart, etc.

It was madness.  I grabbed about 10 records including a Japanese reissue of Eno's "Another Green World" and attempted to checkout.  The line wrapped around the interior wall of the building to the other corner of the store opposite from the cash register.

After I waited approximately 20 mins and the line had moved about 1 foot, I calculated that I would be in line for about 2-3 hours before I could even see the cash register.

The mission was then aborted.  I unbagged my booty and walked out into the cool, sunny weather.

I then drove over to a smaller record store near my home but I couldn't find a parking spot!

Not a very successful RSD for me, but it DOES indicate the power of vinyl in Austin.

Jim

Interesting read, and I learned something I didn't know about bit-depth.
I still believe that lossless codecs should be future of distributable/downloaded audio though.  ;)

I agree.  However, it seems like there can be too much of a good thing.

Computers, Internet and Technology / Re: MP3 vs. FLAC
« on: January 22, 2012, 01:45:55 PM »

Personally the idea of listening/purchasing music that has had parts of its content removed to fit into a format for mobile listening and easy digital distribution does not do anything for me....thats like buying a sofa and cutting part of it off to fit through the front door.

I concur...as almost everyone here knows.  At least I have the opportunity of hearing the entire original recording in .flac (although my sense of hearing & equipment may also be limiting factors.)
