If you like the '50s shitkicker genre of country (i.e. as played in stinky old rural beerhalls with sawdust on the floor) Hank Thompson was one of the poppermost. But yeah that's about the right price for his music in today's marketplace -- Daddy's remastering fees ain't gonna be buying any new audiofool equipment.
Luckily he gets that stuff free!
The idea that seeing Pete and Roger uncomfortably sitting on a vintage motor scooter would be anything more than a novelty is ludicrous
It actually would be quite fun to mix the stuff into strictly mono. Use a bit of actual chamber EMI slap style echo, a pinch of analog compression (just a pinch, to keep it all on the same planet) and there ya go..
"I must say though, artists like Kurt or Thelonious Monk who people think have something to say of the highest importance but are really just suicidal or insane sort of freak me out. Why? Well, everyone thought Monk was really "out there" but they followed his lead and jazz changed. Turns out he really was insane and was finally locked up. Does that mean that the jazzers were wrong to follow him? No, but still." - STeVE
Huh. Those two look absolutely normal. Maybe KArLA set up a play date. Maybe they gave STeVE an ice-cold strawberry soda (the kind "those people" like) and a fidget spinner and told him if he'd sit quietly and behave, they'd let him pretend-turn some knobs when they were finished.
In the rare event Steve gets some work, does he haul the Kensei Audio Transmogrifier all the way to the studio?
Or -- as I like to imagine -- does he turn up to the studio bleary-eyed, holding a ragged attache case filled with old Hi-Fi manuals?
"Yeah, man. It's a, uh, um manual for uh a um uhn ... Zenith Cobramatic. Uh uh um, see, it's a ah uh um ungh *minty*. Er, ungh .......................Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz................... *ago*."
