Geetings cowboy99, very late in the day here but "hello" from Australia. I am impressed with your avatar. As I recall it was used on a King Crimson ("The Court of the Crimson King") round 1970/71. Right? Anyway welcome aboard and enjoy yourself. Jonathan

Default Thanks

Dave, Cal, Thomas and Jonathan: appreciate the welcomes. The avatar actually resurfaced recently; got all happy and excited at record store recently. Picked out a 'In the Court of the Crimson King' an 'Observation by King Crimson'; I'll be damned, an "Original Master Edition" 24 bit HDCD remaster by Simon Heyworth at S.A.M. Sept. 2004.
Somehow, Robert Fripp (KC front man) had acquired the original stereo master tapes that were located in a Virgin Records storage vault in 2003. Enlisting one of the best, (S.Heyworth) and securing the remaster at his studio and on his label, Discipline Global Mobile;
WOW! ,what a real audiophile find for an old hippie.
Most of what I've heard of the 'digital anniversary re-masters' _____k.

DGM0501 2004 Robert Fripp, I will 'infringe' copyright, and send any of you a copy if you can't find. Whats equipment without the quality source?
Charles
