Re: reggae according to bob marley

I used to be big into Marley -- had tix to see him on one of the last canceled shows -- but the Island stuff & Jimmy Cliff are more 70s pop than reggae to me . . . not meant as a knock, I like them both. Another good album along these lines is Bunny Wailer's BLACKHEART MAN. Some real deep, bass-heav...

Re: Things to do in Nashville when you're dead?

"Black Market music moved to Hollywood. When I dealt with them in the past they were very up front about what did and did not work." That's good. The SF branch had no return/warranty policy -- you buy it, it's yours as-is. I can remember getting stuck with an analog drum machine with nonworking memo...

Re: Things to do in Nashville when you're dead?

"There are none in Nashville, but if you're in San Francisco, Black Market Music would be worth a trip."

1. Isn't it closed?

2. If it's open, Caveat Emptor for sure. I've bought & traded with those guys, they really don't care if what they sell works.

End of thread hijack . . .

Re: The collest thing you learned from tape op?

1. Everybody starts out ignorant, and there's a cure for it.

2. Hard work plus caring about music, whatever music rings your bell, can overcome a lot of budgetary and technical difficulties.

Re: turntable/preamp for sampling

I got my old Hill Multimix (12 x 4 mixer) for like $250 on e-bay, and it has RIAA jacks which I think are intended specifically for turntable, although they're 1/4". Haven't tried this application though.
