Table of Contents – Issue 185
Copper’s gone to a new web platform, as many of you have undoubtedly noticed. We’ve got new features like a search bar (yay!), and others – but there are also some bugs. We are aware of these growing pains and are working mightily to fix them. One thing in particular to point out: you can now download the issue as a PDF again (yay again!) but for now the navigation is clunky. Here’s how to do it:
Click on the Download PDF link at the top of the issue’s opening page (under the issue number). This will take you to a new screen. However, there’s no obvious Save or other button. You will need to go to Print on your browser, and then choose Save as PDF, or in some browsers, Print as PDF. On Chrome, in the Print menu, go to Destination, then choose Save as PDF from the drop-down menu. For Safari, go to the Print menu, then click on the PDF button and choose Save as PDF from the drop-down menu. We promise we’re working to make this easier!
In this issue: Anne E. Johnson listens to the Bangles. John Seetoo reports on CanJam 2023, the specialty headphones show. Wayne Robins has thoughts on the Rolling Stones’ pivotal Between the Buttons album. J.I. Agnew repairs a vintage Western Electric record lathe cutter head, and Rich Isaacs has an easy fix for off-center records. I conclude my interview with Dave Rusan, audiophile and maker of Prince’s Cloud guitars. Ray Chelstowski talks with the brilliant indie-folk-rock songwriter Eric D. Johnson of Fruit Bats.
Larry Jaffee remembers legendary producer Phil Ramone on the 10th anniversary of his passing. Harris Fogel tells us why digital asset management is important, and not just for music. Russ Welton concludes his interview with Scott Smith and Tadd Swanlund of eartip maker Comply Foam on how to get the best sound from in-ear headphones. Andrew Daly checks in with up-and-coming Canadian guitarist Sierra Levesque. Howard Kneller sits in The Listening Chair to admire an Acoustic Signature turntable. We wrap up the issue with box speakers, tailor-made listening, vestibular vertigo, and a window into the past.
