RE: Re: Hi - fi Low- fi Whatever fi

I bought the cd as I was intrigued by this thread.

Its very well produced, and I can hear the crickets, but god it's dull.

 

Not something I can see me returning to any time soon!

oh well  :doh:

Yeah, but it had an indoor/studio ambience and they'd have to be some very loud crickets to make themselves heard from inside a studio. (Unless they had a box of 'em in the studio all mike'd up for the occasion.*)

*Given how important they seem to be, did they get little royalties?

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

... for the lowest possible fidelity device you can hear the freaking bugs with, I meant. Ah well...

RE: Hi - fi Low- fi Whatever fi

I don't like country music or Folk music, but I do like well produced music! 

Chris Jones was a first for me, country music tell histories, and this album is about Truck Drivers histories , not so much glamour in the profession, but LOT of glamour in the production of the album!
