    Hum begets tearing apart the HT and 2 channel systems
    begets cleaning
    begets rearranging the room
    begets replacing the outlet with a PS Audio Power port classic
    begets setting up the HT system (minus the center channel
    begets Todd 'A Wizard, A True Star' SACD

    It would be more helpful if instead of posting a simple picture of the album cover, which anyone can do, if ya'll wrote a review of the album because this one case where a picture is not worth a thousand words.

    I will do this for all albums in the future. :)
    Good idea.
    P.S. That sounded like a sarcastic comment, but it wasn't.

    Not likely I’ll write any reviews of my musical posts. Unless it’s something very unusual as most of the music I post is common and well known. I just share what I’m listening to at the moment. I don’t have as much free time as I used to. The Mrs. is on my case to get the old homestead ship shape. She wants to put the house on the market in the spring and then there’s going to be a move to Ohio. So we can be near our youngest. Had a rough go here this summer. Was out 9 weeks with surgery. I’ve only been back to work a few weeks. I’m having a tough time after being down so long getting back into the swings of things. It gets tougher every year.

    @F1nut I hope you’re enjoying your recent venture into the wonderful world of analog again. BTW: I had a long talk with David the other day and I hope he’s up and kicking tail real soon. :smile: He’s too nice guy to have this much strife in his life.

    Still listening to Prog. A good sampler to dip your toe in
    for not a lot of dough.

    I’ve visited Ohio quite a few times now. Hopefully we can find a nice quiet spot near Sarah. She’s living in Hartville now with her future in-laws. It’s only a 5.5 hour drive from here but that’s just far enough to make it tough to go for the weekend. The wife misses her terribly and so do I. :smile:

    Doyle Bramhall II-Shades

    Per Jesse's Request
    Ok you Bramhall II fans it's not as guitar prominent as Jellycream, or Welcome, not as good as his debut. I would say it is a excellent addition to his last one Rich Man. He has a few guests, Eric Clapton, Norah Jones, and The Tedeschi Trucks band are all on a few tracks. If you are a Doyle fan like myself then this one is another fine addition to your Bramhall II collection.

    Eric Gales-Relentless
    Eric Gales-Good For Sumthin

    Those of you familiar with Eric know what your getting when you put on some EG, those of you that dont, think Electric Blues, some Fussion and Rock the man is a phenomenal guitarist and has mastered the styles of music he covers. The Relentless album is just that Relentless.
