I listened to this last night - I've not listened to this CD in years...pretty much burned myself out on it in the early 90's. I've heard it literally hundreds if not thousands of times...but was hearing all sorts of new details now that I have the MG944, Modified Zen-A, and Oppo 105!

Also gave a spin to the Dylan album Lon posted...I'm not a Dylan fan, but enjoyed some of the rougher cuts that weren't smoothed over. Reminded me of playing guitar around a campfire.

Man thanks for bringing back my memories of driving my 1980 Honda accord around jamming  to Danzig on cassette with my buddies.

I'm not a fan of Neil Young - but I listened to the Wolf People mentioned previously (great album!) which warmed me up for Neil - which I'm listening to while repairing PCs (my side job) to help pay for my Mystery Amp!

I would like to point out something that's been rattling around in my head for a while (appreciated by those of you who do, or used to listen to *Metal*)

You know you're old when....

I'm in the grocery store, and I stop dead in my tracks when I realized they were playing Metallica overhead as if it were classic rock...

I guess this is going on later tonight.



Crap, this album is over 20 years old... Roll Eyes

I play this too periodically... but it only sounds good during the intros of the songs, before they really get into it.  When they do, you can hear the distortion.  And I can see the Peak Meters in foobar2000 pegged.  Then I play something else. Smiley

on the Old-topic.  I was at a bar listening to a friends cover band.  they played old Ratt, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl jam.  I loved every song.  My girlfriend didn't know any of them.  most everyone in the bar was young and didn't know or seem to like the songs.  I realized, I was old.  went from fun guy with beer to sad old man with beer. Smiley

The Mingus jazz circus is performing tonight. I've bought this on cd too many times because I love it. This latest Japanese cd sounds really good.

I confess that I had a crush on Flora in the second half of the 'Seventies. I love these albums she did for Milestone. Playing this one now, Sounds so so good tonight, the system is firing on all cylinders.

The last disc. Dad finds these late pieces difficult listening. I do too but I also dig them!

Wolf People - the album is called Fain ... my favorite song (right now) is "All Returns".



It's got to be one of the rocking'ist albums I have right now.  I can hear influences of Floyd, Tull, Zep and Sabbath ... and a little Medieval Folk thrown in.

If you're a Rocker you need to check them out!

Came home from work (out of town) to find the fiance had left the Zen amp on since the day before...I explained to her it's not bad, just uses a lot of electricity sitting idle for 24-48 hours. She smiled and said, "I warmed it up for you!" LOL

So I notice on the counter, a small package from Herbie's - my halos showed up! I got one of the RX and two of the new (expensive) titanium ones for the pre and power tubes respectively per a recommendation he made to another Zen user. Popped them on the tubes then spun this:



Followed by This:



Followed by This:





Needless to say, I think the tube dampers did something really good, and I didn't get much sleep last night as I sat there for another hour or two just flipping through FLAC files I happened to have on the USB Flash Drive inserted into the Oppo. I'm going to have to spend some time doing a proper A/B, but I'm pretty sure this falls into the WOW catagory.   Shocked

Yes, those tube dampers are special and I'm glad you got to try them out. I bet you'll be keeping them!

I haven't tried the Titanium. Maybe one day.
