Peter Gabriel--Plays Live.  IMO the best live recording ever released, quite simply because the playing and sound quality are amazing, not to mention it surpasses the studio versions by a mile.

ASC--Truth be Told.  CD arrived a couple days ago and wow is this great, IMO even better than his last double album Time Heals All.  This disc seems more flowing and cohesive, not as dark and shadowy as its predecessor.  Blissfully melancholic and simply beautiful.  Best of 2014 so far for me.

I agree.  This is my favorite thread as I find out what I may be missing.

Thanks Loren.  Good advice.  Elyon, why should I delete this thread???

So despite the conclusion reached above, I've found it hard to crush my crush on this woman.  We had a lunch planned, wherein I had to adjust my schedule.  She called the day before saying she "forgot" she had to pick up her daughter from school at lunchtime and asked if we could reschedule to the next week.  I finally suggested we just drop the idea because it didn't seem she was into the idea with all this forgetting and excuses.  She then said we can go downtown and grab lunch sometime...?  Why would you even mention the idea if you obviously had no intention of following through???  I noticed all the cancellations were always suggested being rescheduled to the next week instead of that same week, and no exact day was ever offered.  Also saying sometime is about as vague and noncommittal as you can get.  I have gotten it through my head this ain't gonna happen, yet it's still hard because I see her every day.  What's worse, unrequited love in the workplace or an office romance gone sour?  I have experienced the latter but not never the former...

I pulled out Dagaz last week and man this is one of his best IMO.  Really ethereal nocturnal stuff.  Brilliant.

Well the prices on Amazon are usually grossly inflated.  I would check Discogs first.

I notice there is a new Grassow CD out on Databloem called First Gift of Life.

I've been immersed in these Echospace Detroit recent releases by Cv313 and Echospace.  Two are double CD's.  Ambient dub techno heaven!

Zenith was a collaboration with Carlos Vivanco, technically not a Tetsu solo album.  I agree about the low mix, needs a good volume boost.  Sort of lo-fi and muddy sound, but nevertheless another classic Fax album worth seeking if you can find the original or reissue. 

71
Hmmm, thought rare stuff was being released.  Ming Noir was available for years.  Kind of disappointing for the first release on this label.

Ishq--Blue Infinity and Seascapes.  Pressed CD's limited to 90 copies.  Good stuff as usual by Ishq.  Some tracks on both have some distortions, which is annoying and puzzling.

73
Anything by ASC on Silent Season sells out within 2-3 days now, even with 400 copies pressed.  They also limit 2 CD'sper customer, as this avoids buyers hoarding copies to sell later at grossly inflated prices on Discogs.

Who cares what he used, the end result is all that matters to me.  There was a warmth to his creations that many with more advanced gear would never tap into.  Just because you have the most expensive guitar does not make you a better player.

Cosmic Ground s/t.  Hmmmmm, the 70's TD vibe here is well done but music wise it doesn't leave a lasting impression.  I will have to give it a couple more spins...

Expo70, an ambient spacerock artist, has released lots of tapes.  His music is pretty lo-fi anyway, but I think the tapes are a way to put out a lot of music for the hardcore fans.  He does have official CD releases on various labels, in addition to limited vinyl pressings and digital downloads.  But yeah, who wants to bother with cheap tapes?  And who actually has a tape deck anymore???  Haven't had one for at least 25 years.

Steve Hillage--Rainbow Dome Musick.  This timeless masterpiece is high on my all-time faves list.  Stunningly beautiful two long tracks.  Ethereal in the extreme.

Yeah, Outland 2 is great, best of the whole series.  Shades of Orion 2 and 3 are way better than the first one, so you should check those out.  I am also awaiting my Namlook tribute box.  Should be another month though for that as I preordered late last year.

Update:  the object of my affection gave off too many red flags to even consider pursuing... the main one being ditzy, unreliable, forgetful, and flaky.  This woman could not remember when Easter was, two days after Easter Sunday (andwe had talked about our individual plans the Friday before Easter)!!!  Put several other recent examples like this together and I start thinking, "Do I want to date someone this wigged out mentally?". Disappointingly, the answer was no.  She is also a divorced single mother, which oftentimes can be a recipe for disaster in the long run (especially when the child is only 10 years old).

One good thing about potential dating of coworkers is that you can screen out the red flags before even going on one date!  ;)
