    Kudo’s to you and your guests Warren! You have by far exceeded every possible expectation of sharing your knowledge, wisdom and now history of a major part of the music world, as those of us who were around during the days of vinyl have an opportunity to go back in time and re-live it. A great time to be alive when the merging of technology goes back to part of it’s roots and proves that it’s still viable in the 21st Century. As a retired NASA Engineer, I have seen this world not only transcend from music and analog to digital but in human space flight where digital is definitely the trend but analog is still used in today’s most modern launch technology. Yes…tube gear was still aboard the Shuttles for tracking and flight guidance till the very end.

    Thanks for all you do! Great job and you have taught me a lot, thank you!

    Cheers, Tom

      Thank you for your service while at NASA Tom. I think the reduction of our space program is criminal and that our country was never better than during the “space race”. Rock on brother.

        Thanks James! A sad situation indeed. It’s tough to have to rely on other countries to get us back and forth from space for manned flight, but hopes are that a new administration will accelerate the new space transportation systems available and make them work. Privatization and commercial ventures are not a smart venture in my opinion, too many fingers in the pie and hard to keep track of it all. Cheers!

          Agreed. I suppose all we can do is vote. At least we can find solace in music!

    Hello Warren,
    Thanks again for posting the most entertaining and informative videos around. I must say the interview of Steve Sheldon at Rainbo Records is my favorite to date even though I follow your site for the recording, mixing, etc tips and knowledge you graciously provide. As a product of the sixties myself, vinyl records hold a special place in my heart. I remember sitting in the room of my older sisters in the seventies playing their rock albums while reading the liner notes and staring at the artwork on the covers. I must admit that I no longer own a turntable and my entire collection is now on CDs but I do reminisce about the art. CDs still have great cover art if you squint lol. I prefer the clean (some may argue sterile) sound of CDs but I play them through my home built tube hifi into JBLs from the early nineties. Everyone has their qwerks I guess. Thanks for the walk down memory lane and as always thanks for a great video. You ROCK. – James.

      Hi @micheljosephptulli:disqus Yes me too! Really enjoyed making these two videos!! Have a marvellous time recording and mixing, many thanks Warren

      1. i went thru all phases of recording methods but my most fond of memory is when we cut to the neuman cutting lathe using the Sony PCM1 a/d/a we had on trial from our 16 track scully to vhs tape storage and back out to the cutting lathe [that being said i do not miss the maintenance of the analog gear a bit]
