This is not as great a show as the other one from the Palms Milw. But it's JJ at the Park West. He was hot or cold or in between. I hear he drank a lot. This will play nicely on your best system. Enjoy RB

Understand that all this archiving that is recorded in 24b/192khz I am doing SOLELY for myself. It is the best sound! Sharing it in cd format is lossy. Besides I have enough work to do and consider yourself lucky if I do upload a CD format. If you really enjoy these archives get them at this resolution despite the file size. Down the road you will NOT be sorry. Is this a nice enough way to say it?

***Everything I do for my stereo room and gear is carefully chosen for the finest of quality control. This means A to B comparisons for EVERYTHING! I leave no stone unturned. I decide if what I do will end up being a more musical experience and not the opposite like more processed sounding. I split hairs!! I have learned what is more musical from all the decades of listening to differences. Stereo and audio gear is not nearly as subjective as people make it out to be. It is either more musical or more processed sounding at the end of the day. One more thing I learned, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS THE SAME! Practically the same yes! The same, NO! So with this all said…..I thank all the people here for the great compliments since I came here in 2006. It means a lot to me after decades of sleepless nights and stressful days carrying in top shelve equipment every time out!***

With every digital transfer the master tapes become obsolete. If you try any which way to transfer them again they won't sound as good. As long as there are ample backups of course there is no need for them.
