    A nice reading of Rach's First Symphony by Valery Gergiev conducting the Kirov - Maestro Gergiev Rocks!!!

    I've cut back on buying CDs, I tend to listen to last.fm most of the time, except mealtimes and when reading in bed, then either a classical FM station or CD.

    I also have an application which will save a video or strip just the music from a youtube item. I only buy a CD nowadays if I can't find the track(s) I want any other way, and then often a download from Amazon either the complete CD or specific tracks if I only want a couple.
    Cheers MIKE.

    J.H.C. my friend, nah, I buy all my music from iTunes store (simply because I have a very, very old iPod that I still use).
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    Might I have the temerity to suggest this could be "music purchases" which would include all formats?

    To be quite honest I can not remember the last CD I purchased, if you only want jazz then I d/l 3 Oscar Peterson CDs last week, one was taken from a vinyl and was full of pops and hisses, the other 2 were remastered from the original tape and superb when burned to CD.

    Pops and hisses can be taken out with a bit of fiddling, I use a programme called Audacity, free download.

    I'll have to redo the words and pictures tutorial I did last year, the pictures have gone cos the host I was using went bust.
    Cheers MIKE.

    Thanks Mike, I do have a couple of programs that are supposed to do this but I have never used them, something for me to play around with,I will let you know how I go

    My programs will not work I have NHC,Foobar,TLC but they are free versions and noise reduction for d/l is not an option, Damn

    I eventually tweaked Foobar to remove the hisses etc which it did OK but I think I can detect a slight fall off in general sound, but that may be my mind playing tricks, auto suggestion

    My main route to acquisition of Cds is currently as follows-:

    1) I listen to Spotify and ferret out music I want
    2) I move to Amazon and see what is available by the artist or Group (band)
    3) I buy either the Cd or d/l from Amazon (The former supplies better info on
    personnel etc, and the latter is usually appreciably cheaper)
    4) With the d/l route I burn a CD from the downloaded tracks but I have to
    produce my own Cd picture (usually printed from the Amazon blurb ) and
    My own personnel list (try "CD Universe. com) and Track list .

    However I obtain the music, it ends up on my computer, but I always have a Cd as back-up.
    For Colin, I would say this is the main reason for holding CDs.
