This is amazing!!!

Only six weeks before the legendary show at Massey but 13 different songs performed! You need this


The LP is already out of stock everywhere…

I just got the 2cd for $9.99

New York fans suck on this… they can’t clap in time to Sugar Mountain and some annoying guy keeps yelling LOUDER… happy peaceful stoned Neil is like WTF

Can confirm.

So you don’t listen to Substance anymore. Got it.
not on CD...it is a 'greatest hits'  not a proper album
Now Joy Division - Substance, that still gets somewhat regular 'rotation'
slack

This is a top 100 cd for me
it terms of rotation in a cd player (when I had them) for me, easily in top 50

So how do you listen to Substance now?
Not on CD.  But actually just listen to the proper albums or singles...but mostly streaming.  I do have one slab (of the two that came with it) on vinyl some where that resurfaces every once in a while

Well but they are 12” singles…special mixes… so it’s not a greatest hits but a compilation of 12 inch mixes and their b sides… most if not all never came out on albums…

I upgraded from the cd


This album is fantastic! Tin Pan Alley standards done really well. Rekindled my love of her music.

When I say “upgraded “ it’s just talking… not sure there is much audio difference! It was only $17.99.

The Figgs - Low-Fi At Society High

throwback to when the arrival of CMJ New Music Report and the sampler CD meant a least a couple purchases of new music..

discussion time!

What Are You Listening To? it's not new music, apparently.

Is Old Music Killing New Music?
Old songs now represent 70 percent of the U.S. music market. Even worse: The new-music market is actually shrinking.

"The problem isn’t a lack of good new music. It’s an institutional failure to discover and nurture it."

Haven't read the article yet, but I'll say two things:

1. New music recordings do not make old ones disappear. They just add to the total available.

2. There are now more old people than ever, and they like to listen to "their" music.

It's a demographic problem, not the music itself.

I don’t think that’s entirely it. Music isn’t as important to newer generations…it has to compete with other things… when I was young music was all we had…that and blockbuster.

Moving on to




Never made the connection Sinatra and Esquivel were friends…makes sense though… Esquivel performed in Vegas and Frank put out a couple of his records when he started his label…on this record Esquivel does versions of a couple of songs that became identified with his label boss: I get a kick out of you and One for my baby (and one for the road)
