Center image is driving me crazy!

You seem to enjoy what I refer to as" Americana". Do you listen to Dylan?

I love Dylan, before google era, when I was teenager, I translated his lyrics in italian listening song by song, word by word, on a paperwork. Mmm I tried to translate, it’s more correct saying. He inspired me, he made me love writing and poetry (I wrote a lot during those years). If you ask me the larger collection of CDs or LPs I had and have… always Dylan. Still today his music can touch my soul so deeply!
I don’t think to be the one and lonely though.

Think about this: when my son is born I thought a lot which song his ears should have heard for the first time in his life. Coming back from the hospital, the second day he was on earth, I played (very loud) Highway 61 reviseted.
Now he hates Dylan and loves The Rolling Stones.

That’s a fantastic story, thanks for sharing.

It seems your Son and our Daughter are cut from the same cloth. She loved Dylan when she was younger and now at 25 has sworn him off. I am hoping like a fine Barolo, she ages into the poetry of his music.

3 inches? In my case with My Maggie LRS’s I work in 1/2 inch increments. My old knees hurt!

Love the poetry but a lot of the music…not so much.

Plan on revisiting the catalogue though (that’s what Roon/Tidal/Qobus are great for) and see if some of the deep cuts appeal more to me than his more popular/well-played fare…

PS

Open to suggestions to BD cuts folks find to be very musical/enjoyable…

Listening to The Real Royal Albert Hall currently. I love how pared down Desolation Row sounds. The slight echo of the hall has a nice sense of presence.

You might find “Bob Dylan (featuring Johnny Cash) The Bootleg Series, Vol 15” interesting.

And of course “Blood on the Tracks” and “Desire”.

Congratulations! Finding a cure in audio system can drive one crazy as many of us experienced it. It is hard to give other recommendations too because there are so many variables.

It took me a long time to cure my system when I replaced the carpet to hardwood floor. The solution was to replace an entire system to PSA audio and add a thick large carpet (putting green in my case :face_with_hand_over_mouth:) in the listening room.

This is a busy week for me. older daughter and son-in-law are back from NY, younger daughter is back from college, and I am preparing a turkey feast for 14 tomorrow. So even without DS MK2, I do not feel anything lacking in my system. In fact, when the system is on, all kids have their headphones on (I am sure with the noise cancellation turned on). So, I keep the volume low so that they can enjoy whatever they are listening to.

Had to double up on the turkey this year (one roasted and one deep fried - using my last year’s Christmas present to deep fry turkey for the first time), since we are expecting about 20 folks for 12:30 feast tomorrow!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and the rest of forum members! The deep fry turkey is juicy and fast! Next time I need to convince my wife that it is safe because I will have a fire distinguisher nearby! :grin:

I got a counter-top, “commercial” boiler/steamer/fryer unit and its electric (with a bunghole and drain on the bottom).

No stands precariously holding a vat of boiling oil and no propane to mess with!

That said, since the weather is cooperating and this is my maiden voyage, I am going to plug the thing in on the deck and cook the turkey outside. :crossed_fingers:

The basement tapes, Desire and the underwhelmed Slow train coming. Just to start…

Desire is a must.

Thank you Vince, I’m playing more music from Ondara (unfortunately only 3 albums), a gift I’m really loving. Qobuz info notes report a sound between Dylan and Tracy Chapman. Not a big fun of short reviews and labels like that, however this time I find it quite appropriate.
And (also) this evening the system sounds so good, what a wonderful moment!

I’ll try tomorrow, thanks. Totally different genre but I’ve just played The Next 20th Century of Father John Misty. Wow, a deep immersion in emotionally profound abyss of pleasure and intimacy. Now that my system is sounding even better than before due to set up tweaks. After a hard day work and 20 hours awake I need to sleep but was really a pity to stop that music.
