Re: Vinyl revival

Almost all my music purchases now are vinyl (100+ LPs a year), probably only 2 or 3 CDs a year. CDs don't come close to the sound quality of vinyl, lossy mp3s are even worse. I just picked up Dear Heather today, only about 5 more Leonanrd Cohen LPs to get and I've got the lot on vinyl:)

The live performances were so good that it took a real effort of mixing and editing to degrade the performance to this state. Which Sony executive...

Re: How good is Live in London?

I thought that it was terrible! I've been going to live concerts since 1973 (The Rolling Stones) and the concert sound I heard at LC's show at Rochford Winery in the Yarra Valley (Australia) was the best concert sound I've ever heard. The performace was full of life and passion and humanity. I was v...

Re: Yarra Valley, Jan 24

I've been going to concerts for a long time, since The Stones at Kooyong in 1973 and it's hard to remember a better one than Leonard Cohen:) Does anyone know who was filming and what is going to happen to the footage? There were 6 fixed broadcast cameras and one remote controlled on-stage camera - q...
