    Sorry Seawolf, you are absolutely right. Seems like I have to wake up and smell the cabbage water. My rant was directed to the Gold album vs cd.
    Thats what I'm talking about, pissed me off when I heard the version on the cd, which as stated sucked! & I stand by my previous statemnt

    I believe the "Gold" CD was directed at mass-market distribution without the true Dan fan or "audiophile" in mind. I bought it, listened to it once, and relegated it to in-car use, only.

    In my opinion, if you want a good CD version of "FM" you should be looking for the two-CD "Showbiz Kids: The Steely Dan Story 1972-1980" which contains re-mastered versions of some of their best, including "FM", and 32 additional classic cuts.



    I believe I got my copy, new and unopened, off Half.com for $11 shipped. If you're not a registered at Half.com, let me recommend it and send you a link which I believe gets us both a $5 credit off each of our next purchases.

    I ab love "FM" ..its on the pod always, but "Babylon Sisters" is 99% as good.

    BMr, thanks for the tip on showbiz kids, send me the link on half.com & I'll take a peek at it.

    Babylon Sisters is also underrated as is Gaucho in general, great album w/Mark Knopfler making a nice cameo on time out of mind, his guitar playing is always so unique/original. Another Dan guitarist that comes up and is relevant to this particular little discussion is Rick Derringer ( on-my rival, another great song on gaucho). Listen to his slide guitar work on the song Showbiz Kids, it just blows me away every time I hear it, its so raw & just incredibly hot, played on our beloved JBLs & turned up loud it does not get any better.

    Speaking of Rick Derringer, is anyone here familiar with his material, I picked up two of his cd's not too long ago (based on his performance on showbiz kids) and although not bad I was let down a little bit. Can anyone recommend some of his cds?

    Sundays is 5 for a buck on the color of the week tagged media -green this week- for CD's/tapes/LP's ..so I got 5 + another 2 at a garage sale on the way home...7 for $2.

    I'm on a Ronstadt kick right now and always liked Ms. Warwick...the others are a gamble except the BTO "Freeways" which had never been opened.

    Looks like they've gone away from a user-reward model to a website model were owners get paid for driving traffic to half.com. Sorry, for both of us.

    Half.com still works well. Of course like anything making money on the web, it got bought by Ebay some time ago. That means your feedback profile is merged. Give it a try anyway. It's usually my first go-to for used books or music.

    Actually, several user-reviews on Amazon touch on the meat of the issue. Here's one take:

    "…An even bigger problem is that, as Messrs. Fagen and Becker have ruefully recounted many times in the years since, MCA didn't bother locating the master tapes for this... they used the same weak transfers that were done in the 80's and had someone tweak them a little bit. Adding insult to injury, they then reissued the individual albums with a sticker proclaiming them to be "Newly Remastered by the Artist". And you wonder why these guys record for a different label now. Sheesh.

    Anyway, the story does have a happy ending. In 1999, Don + Walt presided over a _real_ remastering of the albums, with the help of Roger Nichols, who'd engineered the original albums. Those cds, available today, sound spectacular and feature groovy liner notes that tell a lot more about the band than this booklet does."

    Eagles - Farewell 1 Tour - Live From Melbourne (2005) - double DVD set

    http://www.amazon.com/Eagles-Farewel...8830244&sr=8-2

    I'm an Eagles fan ....these live DVD's sound as close to a studio session as can be...this and "Hell freezes over" are prolly the best recorded live concerts that I've run into ....most of the favs are there, + Don Henley tunes and a little too many Joe Walsh ones.....of course a huge on stage entourage - 4 horns, violins, dancers etc etc- ....the 2 encores seemed hokey , but all in all a very enjoyable 2.5 hours

    6-8 weeks ago I bought a second Sony MD-Jb930 minidisk deck and set it up in the HT driving the big Ohms' ....now I can dub from concert DVD's to MD and they are transportable to the LR JBL system or the portable MD player for bedtime listening..
