Lon, thanks for your reply...even though it was in the wrong thread...hehe.

I still haven't gotten around to listening to the complete soundtrack on the Fontana CD.  The three Miles studio tracks were great...yes I already had those too but it's been at least 10 years since the last listen.

This morning I'm listening to the Winterland box on spotify.  I knew that I'd be buying it with the first song of the first show...a 15+ minute "Tax Free". I don't understand why they didn't release each of the six concerts in their entirety in the order played?  Here they have reordered and worse, edited out Hendrix solos...WTF?  Anyway, I will buy it and enjoy it but for the true fans/collectors...the whole enchilada would have been preferred. The casual fan won't be buying this anyway...better a one CD highlights for them.  I think I'll hold on the other two sets for now.  Eight LPs of Jimi should keep me happy for a while.  Mark.

Sorry if I replied in the wrong thread.

I don't know why they didn't just do all the shows. I think they are afraid to put out a larger than four disc set thinking that will keep some fans away, and they could be right.

Most of the Hendrix they removed was tuning up etc. They did edit out a few other guest players. Ah well. The sound is excellent.

I love that Sextet session on Jazz Track. This is the first time I've heard it in mono.

Listening to Stone Flower again. On my original set of HR-1s.

That buzz and distortion I heard when I cranked a few items on the 17th doesn't go away and it was one of the new HR-1s as the problem followed the speaker. I'll be sending it back for inspection.

Turns out that the quad of 6CA7s I thought were past their prime are sounding fantastic once I changed the speaker pairs and put them back in. Love these JJs.

Lon, sorry to hear about your Speaker problem.

I listened to the first three CDs of the Winterland Hendrix box.  I've ordered it in Vinyl and also the Dylan Mono Box in CD format.

Listened to a little Ellington and Mingus tonight...

Lon, I just got Winterland two days ago.

It made me want to go back to the beginning and listen to all I had.

Planning a marathon.

Ah, it's okay. The original pair sounds fantastic, and I really don't have time to listen to the second system these days. Worst part is finding the time to pack and ship. That will not be easy.

One last one spinning right before bed.

I've got mono and stereo of this one just because it's so damned good.

Back in the Listening Cave.  I'm finishing up Mingus' "Let My Children Hear Music".  The track..."The Chill Of Death"...very Heavy...Man...hehe.

Next up will be this sealed Japanese Blue Note reissue...Hank Mobley's 1967 release "High Voltage".  Love Mobley.  This has some nice players...Jackie McLean, Blue Mitchell, John Hicks, Billy Higgins and Bob Cranshaw.  Mark.

PS...A question for anyone who has the answer....I want to get a pair of RCA 5U4Gs but I'm wondering how big a sonic difference is there between it and the RCA 5U4GB...with the straight tube?  They are much cheaper and easier to find in pairs.  Also they don't fit so tightly with the KT-66s in the Torii MK IV.  Mark.

Mobley was a cool cat. Made a lot of nice records.

I find the straight shouldered RCAs have a thicker and richer sound, if you want bass weight they are the choice. The bottle shape have a similar signature with a different texture, less heavy, a bit more open in the lower mids and upper bass. Either is a good choice in the Torris, and you can build around them with other tubes and get great sound.

Thanks Lon.  The next up will be CD #2 of this 4 CD set that has remained sealed for 10...15 years...Insane, I know.  I went straight to track #5...Potato Head Blues...then started from #1.  Mark.

PS...here's a link to an article written by George Avakian in 2000.

Just got this new cd in the mail. This was probably the Beatles lp I had that I ended up playing the most through the 'seventies.

Lon, was that part of a box set?  I see a US Beatles album box was just released this month. I think they have both the Stereo and Mono versions of all but two of the albums on each CD.  I decided I would forego it and pick up some new remasters of individual albums after "Rubber Soul" which I just bought.  I actually have most Beatles releases on CD somewhere.  I like their later output best.  Mark.
