            Is it just me or is PF music more depressing than than visiting 3 nursing homes on the day your dog died?

                Santana Abraxas is very good sounding and Innervisions only a half step below. Wish You Were Here only if you like the music because the sound is so-so. Nothing like DSOTM because done by a different recording engineer who basically sounded like he was totally incompetent.

                  I selected these titles, in part, because I grew up with them. To be able to hear them in glorious, analog, reel tape would spur interest in sales. ;-)

                Roger Waters is depressing with Amused to Death being his piece de resistance. Only group more depressing and dark is Alice in Chains.

                Ritchie Valens on the original DelFi master tapes. One short short recording year, and Ritchie was gone. Also, the original master tapes are very unique. Some of Ritchie's musical vibe is lost and wish I could hear him live (or the master tapes). This according to Steve Hoffman, the remastering guru, in his conversation with Bob Keane of DelFi who worked with Ritchie: "I had a great time sitting with Ritchie Valens' producer Bob Keane today, listening to Valens' master tapes and to Bob's great stories about Ritchie. He had fellow engineer Charlie W. and I in stitches. Every once in a while in my job I get to really enjoy myself, and today, mastering songs like "La Bamba"from the original Gold Star tapes, in the presence of the original producer counts as one of those times. Bob was in no hurry, and we talked about everything under the sun. From the early days of the music business to the Bobby FullerFour and beyond. He was a B-25 pilot in WWII (the type of plane that the famous Doolittle Raiders used), and he had great stories from those days as well. At any rate, even though the Ritchie Valensmaterial is not the last word in fidelity, it was exciting to hear the raw energy coming from the session tapes. Gold Star really didn't have a vocal limiter in 1958 and later days, and engineers Stan Ross and Larry Levine just used the natural console overload to "limit" Ritchie's voice. So, when he screams into the microphone, he SCREAMS! It just pins the meters. I think I jumped several times, not being used to the "uncompressed" sound of the original session tapes. I was adamant about keeping this original sound for my Audio Fidelity SACD. I had to reduce the overall levels of everything to keep his vocal exuberance from causing the DSD recorder to explode, but I think this will be the first Ritchie Valensrelease to actually capture the real "sound" of Ritchie. I could clearly hear that he was using a Fender Tweed Vibrolux for his guitar soundand that he was using the center pickup on his Fender Stratocastermost of the time."
