Aged Gentleman

Post by bigrods46 » Wed Nov 29, 2017 6:45 pm

HI everyone....

My name is Julian, from the UK.
Been into music f0r the best part of 50 yrs, ever since my great uncle sat me down in front of a pair of Quad 57s listening to ' This is James Last ' . I am now on probably on my 5th copy and use it for all my auditions of equipment. the track 'I got you babe ' has absolutely amazing strings .
I've listened to it through the 70,80,90,000,2000s. on so many different sounding systems, some bad, some good, some rubbish.
but some have been exceptional...
as a past note my great uncle played drums for a dance band before the second world war and was captured as a paratrooper at Arnhem and interred , after the war he re started his live playing with many great dance bands of the era..
Hence my love of the swing era. but over the years he taught me to appreciate great musicianship whatever the genre,,,
