Where Did the Year Go?

Where Did the Year Go?

Written by Bill Leebens

Welcome to Copper # 21!

It's hard to believe that 2016 is almost over, and that we've been putting Copper together for nine months now. I'm not a Supremes fan by any stretch of the imagination---I lean more to Stax than Motown---but as soon as the phrase, "where did the year go?" came into my head, the Supremes came with it: httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izzKUoxL11E


Earworms. Sheesh.

In this issue, Richard Murison gets the jitters;  Dan Schwartz tells about the events leading up to Rosanne Cash's Black Cadillac Larry Schenbeck considers a holiday starter kit for Classical music newbies; Duncan Taylor writes about recording  two fabulous but very different solo artists  WL Woodward considers the incredible influence and legacy of John Hammond I  look at some of the musical talent lost in 2016, and conclude our look at vintage manufacturer Weathers.

We're really pleased to have three new contributors this issue:  Jim Langley presents a DIY moving magnet phono stage project (and our guy Darren Myers is working on another project which will go nicely with this one);  veteran speaker and electronics designer Ken Kantor writes about that pesky objective/subjective thing in the first segment of a two-parter;  and reader B. Jan Montana ---yes, you too could write for Copper!---gives some thoughts on why we love turntables. I can't wait to get Michael Fremer's reaction to this one!  Finally, we have an especially yummy  reader system from Finland, wrapped up with another striking image from Publisher/Photographer Paul McGowan.

Jim Smith will be back soon with a new series of articles.

Until Copper#22—enjoy!
