    This group is so educational! I was able to guess the dobro before I read
    the notes. I had never even heard of a dobro before I found RAP.

    When I was a tiny tot, small enough to hide behind Dad's easy chair and not
    get caught, my family used to visit a friend with a "hi fi". He had a wall
    full of speakers, turntables, and objects unknown to a 6 year old.

    Every time we went we listened to one or more songs like this (i.e.
    instrumental "easy listening" with a little "zest" to it). Roger's
    recording fits so well with those that I can't think of any comment to make
    except Thanks Roger for taking me back to happier times.

    It has that curious mix of well recorded but soft precision, like listening
    to FM on my Dad's old (now defunct) tube receiver.
  2. Gee, Roger gets credit for everything from padding the price of the
    RapCDs to ending the war.

    I never cease to be amazed at how many people claim to dislike
    'swing' music in conversation, but end up tapping their toes and
    asking where they can buy it once they've heard it.

    The liner notes will tell how it was simply done... modest mics to
    average console pres to digital reel to reel, sans most dynamics
    controllers (there was an Aphex Dominator on the dobro to clamp
    down on the fast transient peaks), mixed, edited and sent for final
    mastering.

    This was one of those cases where the room was filled with pros
    and my job was to do my best to stay out of the way. Since the
    recording didn't seem to offend you, I'd be happy to send you a
    copy of the full CD. Just shoot me a snail mail address.

    Thanks for not being offended. ;-)

  3. I believe you meant David. I would have loved to track that one, but mine
    was a different jazz piece.

  4. Oh, and take David up on the free CD. It's well worth having, even if you
    paid for it.

    I wouldn't call those D&R pre's average. I can really hear the(ir) quality
    in this cut!
