First. just to let you know, I answered your question about PP&M's televised Hamilton Concert down below.
There's additional reference to my meeting Peter Yarrow + Paul Stookey + Mary Travers backstage at
Montreal's PLACE DES ARTS.
Now regarding "long play albums" being reissued on 45rpm vs 33 and a-third rpm....here's the reason.
HIgher rotation speed of 45rpm allows for a wider frequency response,
and the larger available surface area allows for less compression of any signals with a wide amplitude.
Both "BASS" and high "TREBLE" are examples of a wide amplitude signal, which actually sounds better on 45rpm.
I've got hold of MoFi's SIMON & GARFUNKEL: BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER on 45rpm (2LPs/180gram)
and it sounds as if Paul Simon & Artie Garfunkel are actually singing in our living room. They sound incredible.
For the record (pun intended, hahaha) ~> I contacted MOBILE FIDELITY SOUND LABS (MoFi) several times
about re-issuing KINGSTON TRIO albums on their "Original Master Recordings" offerings, such as:
AT LARGE / HERE WE GO AGAIN / SOLD OUT / STRING ALONG / GOIN' PLACES / SOMETHING SPECIAL / #16 / TIME TO THINK
<<< Silence Was The Bold Reply >>>
