  1. Al Jarreau dies

    By all accounts he was a really nice guy, and his voice was a beautiful instrument.
  2. Sonny Geraci dies

    Sad...
  3. John Wetton (Asia) dies

    Another talent lost -- sad!
  4. Butch Trucks - R.I.P.

    A talented guy! Sad...
  5. Greg Lake R.I.P.

    Greg Lake, singer, bass player, guitarist, writer for ELP passed this week - 69 years old (cancer).
  6. Classic Tracks: “All By Myself”

    Interesting to hear the details behind that recording -- a great read!
  7. Sounds Of Silence

    If I recall, Mr. McManus (as we knew him back in the early '70s) taught for at least one year at Chanel H.S. before heading to the Navy.
  8. Michael McBride

    As frontman for Target, he was the only vocalist I ever heard cover Long John Baldry's "Don't try to lay no boogie woogie on the king of rock and roll" -- and he really knocked it out of the park!
  9. I remember and even own 3 of his albums. I saw him live on PBS many years ago -- lots of great music from (at the time) his 3 piece band. He never received the recognitioned deserved.
  10. Yep. They opened for "Johnny Winter And" (with Rick Derringer) at Cleveland Public Hall around 1972 and really electrified the place -- a wild live band.
  11. Eric's LP's - Found them!

    Sorry for not responding sooner, but I've not checked this thread for some time. I am not aware of any device for real-time cleanup of the vinyl sound during playback. However, I've not really searched for anything along those lines. There are some tricks that some folks have documented as being somewhat useful in improving their playback of poor quality vinyl as the first step of the transfer to PC (e.g., playing "damp" by lightly wetting the disk with a damp cloth). Again, you might try google research. I've not tried any of these tricks myself, and I always urge caution (i.e., even if it sounds credible, test on a disk that is expendible). You might find something that helps improve your vinyl listening quality. Good luck! (And if it comes out on CD, it IS easier to just buy it.)
  12. Jellyfish - That Is Why

    I have both of their great recordings, but only saw them live on TV once. Jellyfish was an excellent and creative band! Thanks for posting.
  13. "Him or Me -- What's It Gonna Be".
  14. By the way, many of us that lived in Cleveland did get the Raspberries, as witnessed by the fan turn-out at high school dances and local clubs. It was sad that the press and radio at that time didn't share that support. Hopefully, it appears that the times are changing.
  15. Excellent video with great audio quality!
