          Not that I am a big fan but I was looking for her new LP. Apparently won't be released until December.

              I don't have any of her albums. maybe I will try this one if it's released on vinyl and is in fact sourced from RTR master.

                This is really misleading, since analog is only used as a part of her recording. The recordings are still digital. Only parts are recorded in tape.

                    She is apparently a class act- very nice person or so I've been told. I've seen her perform. She actually has talent. Shocking!

                        Indeed she is talented. She hangs/sings a lot with Tony Bennett.

                          I got the idea that some of the tracks are in analog. Or just digital transferred to tape? Or just parts of each track in analog? It is as Christian said, hard to separate fact from fantasy.

                            There are a lot of very talented singers who we overlook because the songs that made them famous were pop tunes. Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus are two for sure.
