The girl was a bit irritating but Todd was his usual entertaining self. Thanks for the link! I have to go back and watch some of the Live at Daryll's House that were recorded at Todd's Hawaii Home. 

 
She’s been a staple on AXS for many years. I suspect she’s walking the thin line between talking about something interesting and trying to make sure that newbies aren’t lost by esoteric diversions. I posted that she should ask about Patronet, but didn’t happen.

Quite possibly a soundcheck.  have to break each side into two pieces they are so big.

I do owe a make up for those dreadful Doors rips.  I found out that my cart was way out of alignment and blew those big time.  Those 45 rpm albums are really tough on a cart so I'm coming to find out.

It's been put back into proper form.  Re ripping what I've re ripped already.  For the last time, this time ...
 
I apologize for being dense....but I have a question about ripping...why do it? 

I understand the quality of vinyl discussion and am a believer.  LP's are great.

That said, I just went to look, and there are 49 albums of Todd's on Spotify (solo...there are another 18 for Utopia).  The majority are live and have the same songs...but 49!  If ripping is tough on equipment and brings with it the potential of under-whelming sound quality....why do it?

Beyond the storage, the amazingly low cost of music now (Spotify Premium for 4 accounts costs me $15/month) and the access to virtually anything across every platform and device makes me wonder what you're getting by ripping? 

What am I missing?
 
The answer is long and involved.  I will be most happy to share it.  Soon, it will take some time to put it together.  I'll provide it over in my quiet vinyl thread so as not to clog up this one.  It will be a long journal type of answer.  I'll copy this and paste it as the header when I put it up.

I collect sound, not records. You may be surprised to find that the tactile part of it has the least to do with it for me, which seems to be the primary reason for collecting vinyl these days, besides the sound.  

Cheers !

I'm looking at Tidal, and not completely impressed, but there are albums (not many of Todd's) that are Master Quality. Things like Gaucho. As we move more towards digital warehouses with high quality files, you can imagine that in a relatively short period we'll be able to access the stuff straight off the master tapes without compression. As much as I love the tactile experience of vinyl, will it become like microfiche, necessary then but not now?

not only that but the band is phenomenal 

of course kasim sulton is super talented on the bass and vocals

and the percussion/drummer trey sabatelli (i think) just whips it with style


 
I saw the 2018 Utopia re-union tour (minus Roger Powell who had health issues) and they played The Ikon (or portions of it anyway). One of the classic prog rock songs of the 70's. Todd and Kasim were phenomenal in the show.

 

I posted down below some stuff about Gil Assyas. He talks in an interview about how he didn't realize that he was single-handedly reproducing the synth work that three people had done originally. Heh.

That was a fun reunion, and I wonder if it happened because of things like this



 
I've yet to see Kasim solo, this might be the one to catch. I think he is playing Daryl's House which I've wanted to check out and isn't to to far from Jersey.
