Just spinning the recently released Paul Simon Redbook re-masters. I haven't heard them sound this good in years. I must say the "majors" are really starting to get more out or Redbook recently. If you haven't heard them yet check 'em out. Very highly recommended (by me anyway Posted Image )

Yes, these are great. I got the box set that contains all nine of his albums. A major improvement over the older CDs.

Didn't even know these were coming out. A box set, you say?? Hmmm....

Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

 

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.

* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.

* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

Picked up "Graceland" (based on Lee's recommendation) and "Rhythm of the Saints" today. Haven't listened to ROTS yet, but Lee's right, Graceland is an improvement.
