This was a concert in 1974.
I recently purchased this box set.

Michael Nesmith was the headliner.
After the breakup of the Monkees went
solo. He did one of the first Laser Discs
called "Elephant Parts" in the early 80's.
Was a precursor to MTV.

I purchased the set for the John Stewart album.
Growing up with the Kingston Trio in the house
I started collecting his solo work.
This box set of the ZigZag concert was not released
until late 2010.

You still in touch with your car?! Mine unfortunately died a cruel and unavoidable death waay back in 72, caused by a Plymouth Fury III driven a bit too much down the middle of the street...wish I still had it, that was a fun car.

I miss the easier photo posting of the previous forum software....

Yeah; they're PMC FACT 3s...which I've had for a "while" now (while, being a wholly relative word...when it comes to me and kit ). I kinda have a double dose of gear right now, trying to settle-in on a new configuration.

So that means...PMC FACT 3s, and Aerial Acoustics 6Ts. I just tried two, brand-new Pass amps; couldn't decide between the XA-30.8 and X-150.8...so I tried both (and have now sold the 150.8 ) (and I also have the incumbent ARC DS-450).

And before I try I try a Pass XP-10 pre-amp, to go with the 30.8; I just picked up an Ayre K-5ex MP (and that will duke it out, with my incumbent ARC pre-amp).

So yes...LOTS of listening these days (and not much time to post). Life is hard



Today, I listened to:

Talking Heads' More Songs About Buildings and Food and Remain In Light
James Blake's James Blake
Lauryn Hill's Unplugged 2.0

and tonight, is probably more of the same!

wiki:

The album is presented in a form which Paul McCartney considers closer to its original artistic vision: to "get back" to the rock and roll sound of their early years rather than the orchestral overdubs and embellishments which were added by Phil Spector in the production of the final Let It Be album. McCartney in particular was always dissatisfied with the "Wall of Sound" production style of the Phil Spector remixes, especially for his song "The Long and Winding Road", which he believed was ruined by the process. George Harrison gave his approval for the Naked project before he died. McCartney's attitude contrasted with Lennon's from over two decades earlier. In his 1971 interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Lennon had defended Spector's work, saying, "He was given the ****tiest load of badly recorded **** with a lousy feeling to it ever, and he made something of it... When I heard it, I didn't puke."

My only interest in these HiRez discs is the 5.1 mix.
