The first link has 2 cds and then 3rd down a LP.

 

Are some LPs being produced by specialist labels rather than the original label?

Is what it seems like... I think there is something fishy regardering this subject... :?

Maybe to complex to work with, or a faulty design... To much replacements! :read:

hi DogG

when I was demoing hi fi, last year, i've demo Epos speakers with Creek amps and the guy that was doing the demo played a CD from Chris Jones Roadhouses & automobiles, he is a country music singer, i'm not to much in country, as it is not my cup of tea, but when i left the demo i went to buy the CD!

Chris Jones is a wonderfull artist and the cd is mastered suberbly!!! It is quite an acoustic performance with a great beeeeeep bass!

:cheers:

I ordered the CD and it arrived this morning. Just gave it a first spin. Holy bowel motion! It's just brilliant! Hours of hifi satisfaction ahead...

Thanks, Outlaw. I owe you one (even though you called me dog ;)) !

I didn't pay attention to that particular detail yet.

Even if I could hear the crickets, they won't keep me from buying a proper hifi system! :shame:

Oh for goodness sake!

After reading the above I played the YouTube version of the title track (set to 480 quality) on my laptop to my Bluetooth speaker (Logitech Mini Boombox) and heard the crickets - very clearly - just before Chris Jones started singing.

Heck, I can even hear them faintly if I listen closely to the laptop's internal speaker!

Now you ruined it, Chebby! I wanted to listen for it on my car "hifi" tomorrow! Can't beat a laptop speaker...

But do you like the album? I do!

Didn't sound like my kind of music from the few seconds it took to pass to the 'cricket test'.

You can. That's why I bought the Logitech Mini Boombox. (Tucks in nicely in my laptop bag.)
