    Steve, do you have an entire set of the DCC series and AF series? How often do you listen to your own work?

    And a related question, what is your address? ;)

    I have a bunch of this stuff on LP. But never went after the CD versions.
    There is this set, all 8 volumes....

    Gotta be careful iwth the first 3 volumes or so to get the mono "DJ promo" versions. Otherwise you get fake stereo....

    Thinking about it, I understand. The audience here is "different" than the one at Gearslutz, so to speak.

    Steve, do you have a handy list of titles that are 'blacklisted' from third party re-issue company's?
    A few have been discussed over the years- Abba, AC/DC, Duran Duran....

    Any other first original issue CDs you dig like the Boston?
    Could you name a couple of them?

    That's the one. I borrowed a copy from the New Jersey Inter-library Loans system along with the Atlantic Rhythm & Blues Collection. Hours and hours of awesome.

    OK, I got one; You did a version of Stray Cats Built for Speed if I'm not mistaken. Is there an identifier that can direct me to that version? (CD only I assume? No vinyl?) Also, do you have a recollection of the tapes used & condition? (for those that don't know these songs minus the title track were a hits package from their two import albums)

    No idea, I did a CD version but I have no recollection of actually doing it. Wait, I do remember removing some of the harshness out of the tape but a dip at 3k. That's it.

    How about the Elvis Costello original Demon/Imp Fiend CDs? I think you once expressed a preference for those.

    Do you have the Diament Back In Black and For Those About To Rock? I think they sound great. SOme of the other AC/DC titles could sure use a sympathetic audiophile remaster, though.

    Do you drive a special car with the drivers seat in the center for optimum stereo listening? :D

    Very surprised to hear that. Your versions of those Yes albums sound phenomenal. Who disn’t lime them? The band? Record company? Reviewers? SH.tv members?
