Hi Ian, I have a very wide taste in music jazz, classical, folk. I was about 14 years old when I bought my first ND single (Crackling Rosie) I’ve got all his albums. Other major artistes, that I like would be Bowie and Lou Reed. As I get older I am listening more to jazz and classical, especially baroque. Neil Diamond’s latest album, 12 songs is the best he has done in a long time.

Hi Ian, For Jazz John Coltrane is a good place to start, from your previous posts I think you are a vinyl only man, so anything on the Impulse label. If CD is an option. I can highly recommend The House That Trane Built, a 4 cd set giving an insight into the story of Impulse records( various artists.)
I agree about Dixie, it sucks.

And to stop and stay for that matter? But there could be a case of jumping in at the deep end.

Jazz can be a bit daunting at first, I got there via rock -> fusion -> weather report -> miles davis -> coltrane.

Assuming you have the network connection, this BBC radio programs may be a good place to get a feeling. There is a listen again button to hear the current weeks program

The box of tape in question must be a good 20 years old, but probably hasn't been played for the last 15 or so.

Surprisingly pleasant experience - yes it's heavily compressed, yes there's plenty of hiss and the top end is well rolled off, BUT that top end is the surprise. Very natural and not at all "grainy", if that makes any sense. Drums are nice, too - again surprisingly natural and free of distortion.

My cassette deck is an Aiwa FD-450, bought off ebay, virtually unused, for £16.

All this makes me wonder about my CD player. Or is it just that I haven't heard analogue for such a long time???

I once (proudly) owned a TEAC V6030 S cassette deck,and found the best way to 'improve' the sound of CD was to record it to cassette
Given the ability to 'tune in' every single cassette (I used TDK MA) ,and the near silent background thanks to the wonderful Dolby S NRS,the rusultant 'anologue copy' honestly sounded better!
Mmmmm

Martin.

Use use TDK ma tapes myself in the 80s to tape CDs to play on the walkman.
Not bad sounding! I am a strange person because I will not rip off music I have this theory that if people keep ripping of music than the artist will stop or start cutting corners in the stuido because there is no money in it.

P.S Dave the Bass are you into 80s music by any chance? If you are I will send you a CD of some Aussie music that has some real strong bass.

Thank you to everyone for making this a great site trying to get overthere next year for Witham and to work out how to get T/Bone steaks on the plane they are 4 pound a pound here. Sorry your a vegie Dave!

Regards Aussie Ian.
