Feet on the ground
Head in the sky
It's OK, I know nothing's wrong... nothing
– Talking Heads, “This Must Be the Place (Naïve Melody)”
In this issue: I write a tract about my experiences with cataract surgery. Rudy Radelic continues his series on tré-cool singer/songwriter Michael Franks. Harris Fogel has more scenes from the Los Angeles and Orange County Audio Society. B. Jan Montana considers the advantages of listening at home rather than the concert hall. The Mindful Melophile Don Kaplan enjoys some A-sides. We feature part two of PMA Magazine’s advice on improving your audio system with your mind.
Ken Sander remembers a 1960s Thanksgiving at the Fillmore East. Roy Hall crashes some parties. J.I. Agnew analyzes the sound of recorded music. Anne E. Johnson delves into the music of Native American singer/songwriter Pura Fé. Ken Kessler spins further down into his reel-to-reel roots. Jay Jay French continues his series on guitar influences with guitar god Eric Clapton. Russ Welton has more advice on subwoofer setup. We conclude the issue with a shaky start, a generation gap, a starter stereo system, and subwoofer artistry.
