    Desert Island Discs.

    Yes, some of his later songs were played to death, unfortunately. I don't enjoy that song nor 'Happy Birthday'. A great shame to miss out on the many wonderful songs that he's recorded based on this, though.

    Interconnect Surprise

    Do behave, that is no ordinary lawnmower cable, the orange stuff is that that was used by Quad when they demonstrated the original ESL's at a London HiFi show. 😁

    It wasn't obvious to me, either but I've just looked back at 'Tune' 's list...Gill Scott Heron

    Desert Island Discs.

    Very surprised to see David Cassidy's name appear on this thread but that's what it's all about! I do like some of his songs and some by The Partridge Family though. Reminded me of how much I like the album 'The Sound Of Bread' and whether it should be in my Desert Island Discs. Their track 'Look What You've Done' still brings a tear to my eye, the band were a favourite of an early girlfriend that I finished with. It was a very hard breakup as although I realised she wasn't the one for me, I thought the world of her in many ways.

    Richard, if exploring Stevie Wonder, I too strongly recommend 'Fulfillingness' First Finale', 'Innervisions' and 'Talking Book'. All of them are masterpieces, which makes me now wonder why none of them, nor 'Songs in the Key Of Life' are in my top 20 list! We have so much great music at our disposal.

    Funnily enough, some of the albums on my list didn't appear in my recently submitted 'Top 20' list. When you're forced to choose a desert island top 10, it's just as you say, you really have to think about which ones are REALLY personal to you.

    Isn't it just wonderful how music can invoke memories of times gone by and emotions? Frankie Laine brings back happy memories of my father and Rodgers and Hammerstein, my mother. Powerful stuff, music.

    Pre-amp streamer confusion

    Hopefully, someone will be along that is technically knowledgeable but personally, I wouldn't worry about this pairing. Active speakers are built to have digital sources e.g. Streamers, attached to them. Yes, if digital volume controls are turned down too much, they can affect sound quality so it would be worth experimenting with the setting of volume control on the streamer versus the volume setting on the speakers. e. G. It may sound best when speaker volume control setting is similar to streamer volume rather than low on the streamer and high on the speaker. Or vice versa.

    Song Of The Day

    Amor - Hit So Hard Get your lugholes 'round this. The fine guitar work of Jon Amor, formerly of 'The Hoax', on my favourite track from their wonderful self-titled debut album from 2001.

    Ah, I did immediately think of The Godfather scene but hadn't linked it with your comment. Sorry, I'm a bit slow at times! Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Looking forward to reading about this when you've tried it, Keith. P. S. What's with the horses head?
