I didn't realize that "Duets" had a vinyl issue.   It was one of our reference CDs in the store back when it came out.

Mark

The cover states of this Duets LP a label stating "custom pressing"  - so it must be super-rare.  The listing of tracks printed in said cover does not match the actual songs as cut in the  vinyl,  to give you an idea of the one-off-ness.  The recording is amazingly good.

I'd like to see that one in person.   Can you bring it to a meeting?   I'm hoping to make Jim's in February.

I'll bring the album the next time I'm able to make a Saturday night meeting at the shop... not tonight though. My pleasure CaptainTapeDeek.... glad you like my "mid-fi" set ups... lots of compromises,  as we all have to do..like no coffins in the house lol . have just tried to make the most of what I have... When the weather breaks you'll have to take the Tuono for a spin. 

I hope you guys bring some equip to patch in... those HK Fifty's could use a sampling of real power....  and some good tunes etc. of course.

Oh, it's your record.   I thought it was CTDs.   Hopefully I can see it at your place.   I know I haven't RSVP'd, waiting to get my final schedule.

you are welcome to use whatever equipment I have or to hook up what you bring in the garage system. That's where the computer is along with the Marantz SR6007, a decent Technics 1200 turntable  and the Verizon hub. You might want to bring a copy of a good program to burn CDs or you'll need to download one when you get here... I only have ITunes and Windows Media Player ....  Also, someone better than me will need to look at the computer settings to get the computer to recognize the receiver....  The computer will play through it, I have it hooked up via an optical cable,  but I've not spent any time trying to get the inverse.  Make sense?

anytime after 7:30    will be going late...  two years ago the party broke up at 4:00am, but last year women were invited (couples) and it broke up at around 1

FYI my computer died this morning... won't even boot in safe mode!  will try and get it fixed in time...

OK.   Since I have a date with the mother in law, it is pretty iffy on me being able to make it.
