Cream Disraeli Gears (1967) CD -> ALAC
I'm ripping my CD collection [which started with David Grisman Acousticity as the first purchase in 1987 & perhaps ended in 2012 with Bonnie Raitt Slipstream]. My wife made me stop buying LPs to save up for a CDP. I'm waiting on FedEx to deliver a Rogue Audio Stealth phono preamp, so I can start ripping vinyl to ALAC. I haven't listened to LPs since '92, and I started with LPs ~ 1969. I got my first cassette deck in '75, a Pioneer CT-9191, & all new LPs were played twice (to set recording level & record). I will be ripping for some time to come.
David Grisman turned me on to Iris DeMent. New Grass Revival turned me on to The Desert Rose Band, Bela Fleck & the Flecktones & John Cowan Band. Iris & the DRB are the only 2 of those I haven't caught in concert . . . I will be 60 next Monday. My first concert? Eric Burden & The Animals . . . . Mom told me to tuck my shirttail in as the folks dropped me off at The Cotillion Ballroom, Wichita, 1969.
