High-def captures do not interest me at this time because I do not have a PC connected to my HT, so viewing high-def captures is not possible. This kept my interest focused on capturing the higher...

    DVD Review: Jim Croce Live

    I was a sophomore in high school when Leroy Brown was a hit on the radio in the early seventies. A friend of mine lent me his album, You Don't Mess Around With Jim and I was hooked.

    Review: Bryan Adams UNPLUGGED

    I was never a big Brian Adams fan, although I did like his top 40 hits and I do enjoy his unique sounding voice. I’ve always enjoyed the settings and atmospheres that MTV UNPLUGGED portrayed to the audience and anxiously await more UNPLUGGED releases. So on those likes I bought this disc. I...
