I was just thinking of RSD and the last time I was at my favourite record shop I asked them about it and they said to me they do good on the day but better on online when they put the stuff that did not sell up for sail but they did say to me that there is a lot of crap that comes from the big labels, gimmicks they try to avoid. I looked and a lot of what I seen was old stuff being remarketed, that says to me the majors are just trying to make money out of us. this shop I go to do not tend to sell records from small labels and their own. By the way there was not one thing that interested me the last RSD

Yes, I think there is a creative gap between the record shops we love and the record companies' usually naff RSD gimmicks.

Vinyl...... but not as you would have known it .......



Recordings are mostly done by 24bit or even 32bit mixing console. Digital and my last read was ''new digital lathe'' being used to cut the Vinyl......and I also read of '' plug-ins'' digital tone to replicate any near analogue sound ...but synthetic.....You know the acoustic reverberations in an air cavity and old Goldring RIAA equalisation when we hear it........

Talking about naff stuff, As for vinyl, bring out something on coloured vinyl when you can get it in black cheaper this is just an exercise in making money out of fans and this goes for digital remasters too, what was wrong with the old copy?
I was reading online a while back in that some record shops were not getting involved in promoting RSD at all as they did not see it as a good way making money and some went as far as to say they felt that they were ripping off their customers. they also were saying they were better off promoting new artists and or new music. People like you and me, a lot on this forum will go to a record shop what ever anyway so what they were saying is, it was not bring in new customers

Yes I agree about coloured vinyl being the added extra rather than (good) new material on vinyl.
