Let's See If This Thing Works
Sandy Bull - E Pluribus Unum
This is my first attempt at a vinyl rip with my new set up. Please loyal listeners, give me feedback about how this sounds. Questions I have:
1) Are there any glitches in the sound? I'm not hearing any, but in some of the testing I did on other records, I had problems.
2) How are the levels? Am I getting clipping? Too soft?
I chose to do this as my first burn for a couple reasons. One, it has one track per side, so I still haven't needed to learn how to put song breaks in yet. Baby steps.
More importantly, this is a genius fuckin' album. Deep as the Pacific Ocean, and twenty times as weird. Sandy is using the reverb and tremelo sounds as timekeepers here, playing against the drones set up by the effects. Don't believe AMG when they say this is Bull's worst album, because they LIE. This is the real deal.
If you like this, pick up the new live release on Water. It was recorded about the same time as Pluribus came out, and has a lot of the same material.
I'll wait until I get a couple of comments on the quality of the burn to get back on a regular schedule. I've got a few cool things to add on the way, so lemme know what you think.
