When Dr. Robert is not busy asking you for a monthly contribution to pay his rent, internet or food bills, he offers us some of the finest music ever made in blistering high resolution. Jim Croce, James Taylor & The Fab Four, to name just a few, have made it to his turntable and into the digital realm from there.
This week Rob is busy celebrating his love for America's finest vocal duo's that ever was with transfers from a spanking brand-new vinyl box set consisting of no less than 12 records. Yes, you guess it right, the fucking Carpenters...!
But wait, there is a small problem. Or two..
I never really expected the LP’s in this box set to be cut from the original analog masters. But what the fuck was Universal thinking by using CD masters. Definite 22k cutoff seen on the spectrals. Perhaps there will be some redeeming qualities to this set. Plus the pressings are third rate with numerous clicks and ticks. Once all the sides are ripped this is going back for a refund.
Look, Pal, they work great. They are for rich people though. If you've never heard them you can't have an opinion on the way they sound so yap up. -SH
You're not worshiping me per se, but what I STAND FOR: The best sounding music out there! -SH
I imagine the record company discussion going like this:
Record Co. guy 1: Wait, you're not going to use the master tapes on those, are you? That's gonna cost a lot of money... Record Co. guy 2: Well, I'm not gonna master them from CD, am I? They'll sound like shit... Record Co. guy 1: Dude, it's the freakin' Carpenters! The least sophisticated audience in the world; dumber even than country fans... Record Co. guy 2: Guess you're right... I'll wrap this up by lunchtime then. Feel like hitting up ToGo's?

This was the plan all along, no matter what it sounded like or how high out of the range of human hearing the ghostly spectre got. Karen's dead, so she doesn't need the money, so it's totally cool to steal the music and make Amazon pay for the return shipping after it's all ripped lovingly onto his Audiophile quality USB stick. One day, returns to Amazon will be virtually impossible and we can than this dick for helping to make that possible.
