So, I gave HDTracks one more chance....I bought an old Dionne Warwick, and I hoped they didn't butcher it...but alas, they did. DR's were dreadful. I have given my last money to those assholes. Back to locating old vinyl of these older titles that I really want...and want a nice dynamic copy.

Already found a VG++ copy on ebay for $21, I offered $12 and they bit. So, hopefully I can rip this and have a superior copy. :)

I assume there are a handful of metal heads who adored the late 70's - mid 80's metal onslaught. Riot, was a band that caught my eye back then and I loved them. Their lead singer - Rhett Forrester had a solo release. He died at age of 37, not from drugs, but from an unfortunate car jacking incident...I think. He had a very unique voice, I really liked him. :(

And, if you are inclined to hear a rip I own of this CD, give me a shout......I'll set you up with a "sammple"
Here are the DR logs, from my rip. Good stuff...before they totally dropped the bottom out of quality recordings.

DROP YOUR WAD ON QUAD Chicago, Illinois
Great article, Puppo!

There is a 3-foot Nipper as you enter Rolling Stones Music. It's one of the Chicago area's few remaining record stores. It is in Norridge, IL, on Chicago's NW side. Chicago proper is across the street.

I remember RCA dealers being given these when I was a "little Nipper." It was long before Thomson France bought the RCA TV brand, or BMG bought the record label. Likely they got it because they were direct with RCA Records.

The appears to be a partial pic of Nipper in the rolling montage (no pun intended) on the "our story" page:

Deluxe edition includes a blu ray....can we expect?
This is all I've seen so far, sorry mate.

Like The Book of Souls, Senjutsu, which loosely translates to "tactics and strategy," features nearly an hour and a half of music, and will arrive as a double CD or a triple vinyl set. The album's artwork was designed by Mark Wilkinson, based on an idea of Harris'.

ad the vid.

No mention of surround on the Blu-ray in the Super Deluxe Box, just the usual the making of etc. :(
