One of the features readers like Randy Vogel and others have asked for is to add a navigation link at the bottom of the page to get to the next article, so that when you finish reading an article you don’t have to scroll all the way back up to the top of the page to go to the “NEXT” and “PREV” article links. Thanks to our man Kevin Briggs, additional “NEXT” and “PREV” navigation buttons have been added at the end of the Comments section for each article.

I am a connoisseur of silly fortune cookie messages. Like, “to truly find yourself you should play hide and seek alone.” I may be going around in circles for a long time. For now I think I’ll go with a different fortune: “You will be rewarded for being a good listener.”

In this issue: Adrian Wu reports on the recent Hong Kong High-End Audio Visual Show 2021. Ray Chelstowski interviews singer/songwriter Joshua Radin, whose album The Ghost And The Wall breaks boundaries. Russ Welton considers the audio butterfly effect and concludes our interview with iconoclastic cellist Jo Quail. Don Lindich gets away with the Sota Escape turntable. Jay Jay French interviews FM radio DJ Joe Rock as they ask: what exactly is classic rock? Don Kaplan enjoys a little knight music in the latest installment of “The Mindful Melophile.” Ken Sander encounters the Music Revolution.

B. Jan Montana begins a pilgrimage to Sturgis, while John Seetoo pays a virtual visit to the legendary Capitol Studios. J.I. Agnew talks with mastering engineer Mike Papas of Australia’s XL Productions about the magnificent Telefunken M15A tape machine. Rich Isaacs looks at 10 great music documentaries. Stuart Marvin asks: are the proliferation of anniversary classic rock reissues worth it? Tom Gibbs offers an exploration into digital file compression. I seek some clarity about the audio concept of transparency. Anne E. Johnson considers the career of bass wizard Stanley Clarke and digs through Garbage. We conclude the issue with looks at media ownership, endless love, big Macs and special delivery.
