  1. My personal all-time favorite female vocalist, hands down, Mary Isobel Catherine Bernadette O'Brien, aka Dusty Springfield. 4/16/1939-3/02/1999. She left us far too young. Metastatic lung cancer from a lifetime of chain-smoking. She was the greatest.
  2. Thank you for accepting me to this really interesting site. I hope that I can add some positive energy to the flow here! Happy Pi Day to all. Go out and get a slice of your favorite pizza!
  3. McIntosh 2505 power amp, C-28 pre-amp, MR-78 tuner, Dual 721 turntable with Shure V-15 Type 4, TEAC V970X 3-head cassette deck, Pioneer RT-707 reel-to-reel deck, Altec-Lansing Model 19 Voice of the Theater floor-shaking, I mean floor-standing speakers.
  4. Back in the day, I was a regular subscriber to High Fidelity and Stereo Review magazines. They later merged into one periodical, HiFi/Stereo Review. I must admit that I never paid much attention to their reviews of new recording releases, instead burying myself in the testing and reporting of the latest audio equipment. It was a great time for audiophiles, and there were so many wonderful products to bring your favorite music to window-rattling, floor-shaking life. No earbuds with digital bit streams... just analog waveforms being boosted to incredible decibels. Life was good.
  5. Believe it or not, my original 1972 Raspberries LP still has the raspberry aroma in the sticker. It probably helped that I only slit the plastic wrapper enough to slide the record out, and kept it intact around the jacket. I was really happy to see GATW and Eric included in this piece in today's Parade section. It really was the birth of 1970's Power Pop. Play on!
