I have fantasies of putting demands on the rider. You know, instead of cocaine and call girls, hook me up with a really good amateur recorder group. It’s sick, isn’t it?”

  


There was a recorder group here a few years ago, playing at church events, etc. The Fipple Four.

In a show of what campaigners called "unprecedented support" for the global climate action movement, British rock band Radiohead turned a ransom demand by hackers into an opportunity to support the growing Extinction Rebellion movement.

After an unnamed hacker stole 18 previously-unreleased recordings from files owned by lead singer Thom Yorke, the band announced that it would not pay the $150,000 the hacker was demanding for ransom.

Instead of allowing the hacker to release the material, Radiohead released the recordings itself on the music platform Bandcamp, allowing listeners to buy the songs for £18 ($23), with all proceeds going to the global grassroots organization Extinction Rebellion.

"Instead of complaining—much—or ignoring it, we're releasing all 18 hours on Bandcamp in aid of Extinction Rebellion," Radiohead guitarist and composer Jonny Greenwood wrote on social media.

Thanks R_P for that Radiohead video, they sound better and tighter than they did two months later at Glastonbury 2017

Maybe I need to get an old CD and compare it to one on today's. I can do that with a Beatles CD from 1987 and the box set they released in 2009.
What I don't understand is why is this happening, if the sound is inferior why do they do it?  

 
Seems like inexperienced audio engineers thought it would be good to increase the volume, not realizing they were clipping it.

If they knew about the clipping, then that would make them stupid engineers, rather than inexperienced.

About the volume being real low on the LP versus CD, here's an interesting article on that:

It's heavy man, real heavy. Literally, those three 180 gram LPs are to be handled with two hands.
On first listen of the LPs I thought there must be something wrong with my turntable. The volume is real low compared to the CD, that's both the 1997 and the 20th Ann CDs.
Audiophiles always complian about the "loudness wars" on CDs and now I see what they mean but it's no big deal, I just turned the volume up on the LP or down for the CD.
On first listen I was not happy with the LP but into the 3rd listen and my ears have readjusted to analog after listening to the original a few hundred times and I love it. It sounds as if there is space between all the instruments and vocals.
The CD is dynamic, I am going to do a side by side listen with the 1997 version. For example the backround sounds in "Exit Music (For A Film)" are very obvious now.
Do you have a 1997 version? If so give it a good listen before Monday, or maybe Tuesday. {#Wink}

$8 for shipping. Ouch. I just  checked Amazon.ca and I can get a new one shipped from the Netherlands or UK for about $8 total. Don't know how they make money.

Here is Thom Yorke's "The Eraser" by Christian Scott who uses an unvoiced tone, which he calls his "whisper technique."

as for me I love "OK Computer", I think it is Radiohead's "Revolver"
