Welcome to Copper #69!
The aspens are starting to turn yellow here in Colorado, and Rocky Mountain Audio Fest takes place October 5-7. Depending upon the machinations of publishing, it will either be forthcoming, in progress, or have already occurred. At any rate, I’m sure it will be/is/was a great show, once again!
Getting into this issue, Larry Schenbeck asks the musical question, “Why Do You Think They Call it Classical?”; Dan Schwartz is still recovering, so we’ll revisit his memorial of Paul Kantner; Richard Murison remembers friends lost along the way; Jay Jay French remembers the birth of the Beatles phenomenon ; Roy Hall remembers his school days; Anne E. Johnson brings us obscure cuts from all the incarnations of Fleetwood Mac; Christian James Hand deconstructs the anthemic MTV hit, “In A Big Country”; and I write about the difference between humility and hubris.
Woody Woodward is still on sabbatical, and we’re looking forward to his return. We wish Dan Schwartz a rapid recovery.
Copper #70 will continue our Vintage Whine series on phono playback with part 5, we’ll continue Rich’s piece on Monterey, and we’ll have a feature on RMAF.
Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you at the show! …or, I’m glad to see you/it was good to see you, as the case may be!
