“Sail away, away/Ripples never come back.” – Genesis, “Ripples”

Remember the past, live in the present, welcome the future.

In this issue: Anne E. Johnson has someone to talk about: rock legend Bonnie Raitt and jazz singer extraordinaire Joe Williams. J.I. Agnew continues his examination of direct metal mastering and Stockfisch Records’ DMM Dubplate, Vol. 1. Ivan Berger builds his first stereo system. Russ Welton finds a good value in streaming audio, and has more speaker shopping tips. Octave Records has two new releases: the Audiophile Masters, Volume II compilation disc and a vinyl LP edition of Clandestine Amigo’s Temporary Circumstances. Ken Sander joins the Los Angeles Free Press. Tom Methans hangs out by the stage door.

Ken Kessler has more to say about reel-to-reel listening. B. Jan Montana continues his epic journey. Rich Isaacs says they don’t make ’em like they used to – album covers, that is. Ray Chelstowski talks with Michael Jahnz of Richrath Project 3:13 about rediscovered songs by REO Speedwagon guitar titan Gary Richrath. John Seetoo celebrates more joyful noises from Christian music pioneer Phil Keaggy. Rudy Radelic makes way for more Dionne Warwick. Tom Gibbs simplifies his audio setup. The Copper A/V crew gets to the heart of the matter, a well-oiled rig, really portable audio, and music in hyperspace.
