  1. Is This Dissimilar from Wally’s GATW Claim?

    The opening guitar riff on GATW has always sounded to me just like the opening to Free's "All Right Now", but syncopated differently.
  2. Jackie Deshannon´s...

    I remember reading where Eric said he got the name for "Hey Deanie" from the Natalie Wood character in "Splendor in the Grass".

    Hi James. I have missed you. Happy New Year, buddy!
  4. Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood.

    I really enjoyed it. I think you will too. Spoiler alert: Brad Pitt's character, Cliff Booth, drives a blue Karmann Ghia convertible.

    She does have powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal women!
  6. Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood.

    Right you are, Matthew! I don't know what made me write "America". This getting old stuff is for the birds, not the bats! I fixed it. Thank you.
  7. I don't know if this has been discussed previously here, but in my opinion, the selection of songs for the movie's soundtrack was outstanding. It truly was synergistic in making the experience more enjoyable. I was happy it won the Golden Globe.
  8. Returnees

    I have absolutely no clue as to what you are referring!
  9. Erics House up for Sale

    Beautiful home. In New York, especially Long Island or certain other areas, it would be listed for $2 million.

  11. Raspberries 180 Gram Vinyl Review

    A big 10-4 on the Starting Over album having a more refined and balanced sound. Sorry for the CB radio lingo!! LOL!
  12. Raspberries 180 Gram Vinyl Review

    Interestingly, I still have an original (mint condition) 1972 45rpm single of GATW which, when played on my high-end audio system, sounds as good as any CD release! This to me is astounding. Not that the 45 had such great sound, but that the recording has so little dynamics, which were most likely lost in compression. Not being an audio engineer, it is only my guess that the original tapes need to be remixed and remastered using 21st century technology in order to get a really "clean" version, but we must be careful what we ask for...the result may sound significantly different than what our brains remember from 1972 AM radio!!! Newer may not actually sound "better" !!! Remember, this was early 1970's Power-Pop, not Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops!!! Not really audiophile criteria! Shades of RCA Red Seal!!!
  13. Monkee Davy Jones has died

    In the Kirschner interview, he extolled the joys of not needing to split as much profit with the comic-strip Archies as with the human Monkees (oxymoron???), and no heated contract negotiating sessions!! If Archie gave him any lip, Don could just put some "Liquid Paper" over his mouth!!! LOL!! These interviews are easily found on the web. Check it out.
  14. Raspberries 180 Gram Vinyl Review

    I remember buying the Japanese import mini-LP CD of the first album, fantasizing about how those finicky Japanese engineers must have cleaned up the masters. When I played it, however, it sounded no different from my Capitol-issue CD of Raspberries greatest hits. I think this is as good as it will ever be. I agree totally with you about the heavy compression, Kirk.
