Readme Audiophile & Vinyl Lovers
Vinyl lovers
In my blog you will find many treasures either from my collection or from various good will contributors. Here you'll get rare and highly sought vinyls in high quality (16 bit/44 KHz), we enjoy rescuing many albums that marked us in the past and are currently irreplaceable.

Audiophiles
As I said before, I only post in this section for vinyls. I don't pretend to compete with the music industry, as there are already great technologies around, such as Blue-Ray DVD, Mobile-Fidelity, SACD, Studio Master, etc. I'm very picky about good sound, but if there is one of these technologies already available, I step aside and let the stage to expert audio engineers and their proven products. In my posts you will find my rips in the format: Single FLAC + Vinyl LOG + CUE file

Images and Album art (for everybody)
This is a very sensitive issue for me, as I think that album art is as important as the audio itself. In this issue, I try very hard to compete with the industry that actually killed the wonderful vinyl album art. In my opinion, not even audiophile reissues have managed to overcome the old and incredible vinyl album art. In my posts, you'll find 100% high quality album art, with all the extra material that CD and DVD formats have deprived us: gatefold covers, inserts, booklets and labels, all scanned at real size (1:1) and 300 dpi. For this purpose I use scanned images and not photographs due to the latter poor visual results: brightness and image distortion, color range changes. Additionally, I design CD front and back covers trying to maintain the original vinyl art concept.

Spanish
Amantes de los vinilos y melómanos.
En mi blog se van a encontrar con muchos tesoros de mi propiedad y varios contribuyentes de buena voluntad. Vinilos raros y muy buscados en formato de excelente calidad para vinilo (16bit/44khz), nos entretenemos en rescatar infinidad de música que nos marcó un día y que es irremplazable.

Audiófilos
Como dije antes, publico en esta la única sección para "Vinilos". No pretendo competir con la industria discográfica, en que ya existe la gran tecnología DVD Blue-Ray, Mobile-Fidelity, SACD, Studio Master, etc. Soy muy exigente con el buen sonido; pero, cuando ya existen estas tecnologías me hago a un lado y dejo a los expertos ingenieros en sonido con sus ya probados productos. En mis publicaciones se van a encontrar con el modo de FLAC único + LOG de vinilo + CUE.

Imagen y carátulas (a todos)
Este es un tema muy sensible para mí: la imagen es tanto o más importante que el audio, y aquí sí compito con la industria que mató el arte de los vinilos: las maravillosas carátulas. Ni siquiera las reediciones para audiófilos han logrado superar a los antiguos vinilos y su increíble arte.
Con certeza digo que aquí en mis publicaciones, si encontrarás un 100% de calidad visual y con todo el material extra que nos privó la industria del CD o DVD (carátulas dobles, insertos, libretos y etiquetas, todas a tamaño real 1:1 en 300dpi). Para esto utilizo un escáner y no cámara fotográfica (por los pobres resultados visuales: brillos, deformación de imagen y cambio en el colorido). Además de rediseñar carátulas tamaño CD manteniendo su diseño de LP original.

At the time I listened to "The Police", the radio played 2 songs live solo Sting 'Roxanne' and 'Message In A Bottle'. These 2 songs have soul, feeling, finally I came across the LP was not "The Police", but, is a concert organized by Amnesty International. The fact that I bought for Sting's songs, but, a little hear and read those involved I realized that this is one of the best performances recorded in the 80's. It starts with Sting is auspicious, then follows one of the memorable pieces for guitar solo "'Cause We've Ended Up As Lovers" Jeff Beck accompanied by none other than "slow hand Clapton"... Clapton then 2 pieces. Phil Collins also sang two of his hits "unplugged": "In The Air Tonight" and "The Roof Is Leaking" (both excellent acoustic versions).
Finally give way to the unforgettable veteran Donovan, with his two hits of the era folk (the one I like, of course).
Since nothing is perfect in life, the weakest point of the recital is in charge of off-key Bob Geldof.

Spanish.
En el tiempo que escuchaba a "The Police", en la radio tocaban 2 canciones en vivo de Sting en solitario 'Roxanne' y 'Message In A Bottle'. Estas 2 canciones, tienen alma, sentimiento, finalmente dí con el LP que no era de "The Police", sino, de un recital organizado por Amnistía Internacional. El hecho que lo compré por las canciones de Sting, mas, a poco escuchar y leer quienes participaban me di cuenta de que este es uno de los mejores recitales registrados en los 80s. Ya el comienzo con Sting es auspicioso, luego le sigue una de las memorables piezas para guitarra solo "'Cause We've Ended Up As Lovers" de Jeff Beck acompañado nada menos que por "mano lenta Clapton"... luego 2 piezas de Clapton. También canta Phil Collins dos de sus éxitos "desenchufado": "In The Air Tonight" y "The Roof Is Leaking" (excelentes ambas versiones acústicas).
Finalmente le dan paso al inolvidable veterano Donovan, con dos de sus éxitos de la época folk (la que más me gusta, por supuesto).
Como nada es perfecto en la vida, el punto más débil del recital está a cargo del desafinado Bob Geldof.
