Wow, this decodes REALLY well in DTS NEO X...from my original LP pressing at 96/24

Listening cause today marks the 40th anniversary of one of the first great concerts I ever saw...I was in HIgh School in early 1980 and there was rumor that Aerosmith was coming to play San Juan...I was like..."didn't they break up??"...so what we got was the Joe Perry Project on April 5th , Saturday during Holy Week....

It was at the Hiram Bithorn Stadium (baseball park where I saw many a concert too; Frampton, Kansas, Cheap Trick, Sting, Blue Oyster Cult, Heart, etc) and one of the opening acts was a group called BlackJack (ring a bell??? ) with a great ROCK singer called (back then) Michael Bolotin-yes, he modified his last name a couple of years later-, bass hero Jimmy Haslip and future KISSman Bruce Kulick; they had a minor hit "Heart of Stone", and unknowingly stole the show because Joe, although totally smacked out (story is that out of the recording budget , he set $30K aside for dope so he wouldn't go dry) and who, I saw all the way backstage how his handlers were carrying him like a rag doll (pun intended) to behind the amps, strapped the gtr on him , turned him around and PUSHED him on to the stage and he miraculously became alive and sober and played an EXCELLENT show, Ralph Morman (RIP) , the singer OTOH, was TOTALLY drunk and fucked up the show-maybe he was not used to a HUGE crowd like this-more than 8K- and got really nervous...I have heard bootlegs from the era and Ralph DID deliver but not that night in Puerto Rico...

Here is the flyer I found in the album sleeve many years later...

bought a cheapo TT back in 2006 and started ripping at 44/16 (not knowing any better)....cleaned the biggest pops and converted them to mp4s and uploaded them to my ipods...somehow zapped the original files...
the itunes library somehow survived in the imac itunes library as mp4s...found them recently and had to use what used to be itunes in mac , now called .."music" (yuck!)...well at least it converted them to wav since XLD refused to do that, so... from there I used Click Repair to clean them and then back to mp4s, so ...mp4>wav>wav(CR'ed)>mp4...comprende????
Aerosmith DWMIrrors, BCompany DesAngels, Mr Mister I wear the face, Jim Lowe -Wicked Women (1950s Dot Records classic), B Gees Main Course, Thank God it's Friday LPs ST, The Power Station, U2 Under a BRSky..and some Tin Tan from the 1940s....dang I am tired!

Dark Sky Island...decodes great...maybe a candidate for an upmix?

Oops!! How did another photo of the gorgeous Goddess of County Donegal appear here???? Oh well, I guess you can't have too many...a pleasure for the eyes as well as for the ears!

Decided to finally play one of the most expensive LPs I have ever bought (about $125, probably more...wait.. it was Euros , so yeah... very rare on LP, since it was a 1993 release and has never been repressed..and not likely to be...) ..beautiful top notch pressing, with shimmering highs...so happy with this, definitely worth it!!!...of course, all going to my Mac in 96/24...these people in Surround would be the ULTIMATE SURROUND TREAT!!!!...and I saw them live in Madrid on this tour...can't believe I saw them live...oh well..better stop babbling, burble , banter....no bickering though...

hmm.. this looks like "kap'n krunch's show"...oh well...it was because when I started it I did not have a center speaker...it still feels like I don't cause the upmixing does not do a lot for the center ch... I use DTS Neural X now...

OK...
so some of you have seen I got a TT at last...now I have not one, not two but THREEEEE , count them THREEEEEE TTs which are the same model...
Screen Shot 2020-04-27 at 4.37.34 PM.png

so I received this last one, a BLACK one instead of the two silver ones I have in Madrid with a GRADO cart with an SP3(???) stylus which is fine but I said, you know hat? , I have an Ortofon Cart with an OM30 stylus in there.....(PROJEEECT!) , so I decided to install the OM30...
and...
holy sheeeeeeeit!!!!!
I don't even have to see it in the Spectrum Display to hear the diff...the Ortofon is so sweet....
ripped the 1985 Phil C No Jacket Required US pressing again and it's like night and day...
right now me and my woman are enjoying "Inside Out"...
YESSSSS!!!!(wait, no...Genesis...)
