On that clip of CSNY with Tom Jones and Neil bitching about the booking:
Neil Young = hippie
Tom Jones = hip

Also, on folk vs. rock, I'm sure this distinction is worn out, but it occurs to me as if an original thought:
acoustic = folk
electric = rock.
Thus, Hamell on Trial: folk. Or did he have a pick-up on that guitar?

My plan, after I get the lawn mowed today is to move my old iBook that still burns CDs over to my USB turntable which has gone neglected for a long time now and try ripping a couple of my vinyl LPs. I know I have a pretty dire collection, but if anyone sees anything here they might want, let me know!

Fooling around with a compilation made six years ago: here's a download link. This is for an MP3 version. I think I might also do an ALAC (Apple Lossless) - might sound much better.

And it does sound much better indeed. So:

Here's a link to the post with the playlist, but I recommend listening without knowing what to expect. As if you don't have too much to listen to already.

Having listened to the mp3 first and then the lossless today, back to back, I have to say that I'm loth to even offer the mp3 now. The lossless is so much closer to what I was hearing when I auditioned these things in the first place. In fact, I enjoyed revisiting #201 so much that I'm checking out #200 now too, and it is pretty good also, I must say. Here's the link to the lossless alac.
And its playlist can be found here.
