All my Genesis collection is on vinyl bar maybe a comp album, how can I replace 3000+ albums on vinyl to CD.
It`s not practical and it would work out very expensive, although I have up to 1000+ albums on CD, Never really liked Gabriel solo stuff only his Genesis period. PowerKnight wink

Tangerine Dream/Wahn from the Atem album I think meaning delusion in English...if anyone created a scene of lunacy in music Tang Dream did it...it actually sounds like a session in an actual asylum. I get very disturbed listening to it and highly manic shocked PowerKnight wink

PK, here's one way for doing it:

http://www.dak.com/reviews/2020story.cfm?Ref=G&PM=LPCD&type=GSrch&Srh=Vinyl_to_MP3&gclid=CM_qx_fMuK4CFQUZQgod_RoyLw

But a better way is to hook your turntable directly to a desktop PC. NOT A LAPTOP! Reason being you would want to install a sound card that's primarily stereo, not surround sound based. Best of the inexpensive cards for this is made by M Audio. Creative Labs stuff is terrible. You should also download a Linux distro designed for such things, and install it as the OS. It will resize your partitions so Windows will still be there. MS utilizes disk prefetch schemes to speed their systems up that can create background noise, change speeds, ...... etc. Then you just play and record. But store in FLAC, because it will compress the files, saving size, but no sound will be lost. It's really a simple procedure. And applications are available to remove those pops, clicks, and hisses.

Storing on CD though? I would buy a 1 TB+ external drive to store them on, but use a MP3 player with an expansion slot for a memory card to play with. You can get a Cowan from Amazon that will drive full size headphones to their max which sounds great. On a stereo, just buy a splitter cable from Radio Shack for older systems, or just use a mini stereo cable for newer ones. Use the auxiliary or line in port, and use it like a component.

Wu, have to wonder what worlds you and Powerknight were hanging in back then. As if I didn't know. We've rarely mentioned a band that wasn't 99% in the underground scene back then. You'd have never found them if you were an AM radio type fan.

Early Genesis, and early Queen both fit very neatly in that category. Bands like Quicksilver, Jo Jo Gunne, Traffic, or Ten Years After are still behind those doors for the most part.

Of course you have the hard rock/prog rock bands like Zep, Floyd, Purple, and Heep who are credited with making this sound popular, but none truly wrote a single tune for mainstream music either. In fact, Dark Side of the Moon was only written because Floyd's label told them they had to write something that would sell. Any song by any of them had to be edited to fit into the AM radio (45) format. Strange how 90% of the artists accepted as popular back then are forgotten now, and these people are considered the popular music from back then in today's music world, isn't it?

The exceptions to this rule would be the Stones, Hendrix, The Doors, and The Animals to name a few. It was they who brought underground music to the forefront IMO.

And here we sit, all of us spoiled by one of music's most creative eras ever, suffering from the lack of highly inspired artists out there today. But ............ considering where their inspiration came from, do we really want to see a resurgence of their level of creativity today? Jus' asking. But we do seem to forget what drove this highly talented, but also very dark music of the day, don't we?

Most of the bands you named were basically mainstream imo and most kids on campus had them. Indeed most of them had singles on both am and fm.
Quicksilver had several singles as did Traffic, Jo Jo Gunne (ex Spirit.. a better band imho..), TYA, Zep, Floyd...big mainstream record with Dark Side, Heep had several radio hits, as did Purple....none of them were particluarly underground imho...except in the very early days. Even Tull had some hit singles like Living in The Past and several from Aqualung. I still have 45's from most of the ones I named. Traffic were more underground but they also had some 45's early on.
I do agree that Genesis with Gabriel certainly didn't have much airplay except on fm...and the underground bands at that time were King Crimson, Greenslade, ELP, Yes, Procol Harum though they had a hit with Whiter Shade early on...,Van Der Graaf Generator, Argent, Humble pie, Gentle Giant, Rennaissance, and even those were not hard core underground. Bands like Gravy Train, Steamhammer, Savoy Brown, The Move, The Nice , Brian Auger, Edgar Broughton, were far more underground.

One of my favorite 'underground' bands.... cool

It`s the first time I have heard this original version why do I say that simply because metal masters Judas Priest covered this great song back in 77-78 on their Stained Class album. And it`s a great version and contrary to what people might think Priest were a red hot underground metal band just before they had their breakthrough in 78. From then on their best work was behind them they also covered Baez/Diamonds and Rust in 77 and it brilliant, I like much of what came after but their very early years were superb. PowerKnight wink

Yeah Wu, like what was played by most kids on campus was mainstream back then. Yes, just about all of them had a 45 or two, usually a year or two after they came out on albums though. I may be thinking several years earlier. And I'll STFU on that before I give up my age. wink

The days you describe sound suspiciously like after returning from the service. Still, no early Genesis nor Queen need apply. Especially the first Genesis releases. That's like Weather Report, total obscurity. But right after I got back, there was enough FM to avoid the radio trash soooo ................ then I moved out here. Right after that the FM station I posted about hit the air. Two close competitors followed soon after and I've never tuned AM since. Thank God!

I remember Spooky Tooth, early Slade, Bloodrock, bands like that. I also remember Slade coming back with the same music for MTV.

I've always been a heavy blues fan too. This was one of my favorites back then:

Well PK, do it right and it's still the real musical product. That's why the open source guys developed FLAC. Unlike MP3, it's lossless. And unlike the rest, no DRM. If you want to know how/where, I'll supply the links.

Pretty cool from a hard drive with the right jukebox app actually. Just include all your tunes on random play and it's like your own radio station .................... without commercials. I hook my PC direct to my stereo by the way.

Well yeah, I meant something else. The weed went without saying. As well as other assorted party favors. All sold at booths at every festival I ever made. I wonder why the cops were afraid to go past the gate?

Rory was a great blues guitarist who never made it big...I always thought he and Wishbone Ash sounded alike at times as far as the guitar tones and technique but the Ash also had a bit of a prog influence at times.

Yes they did. Very unique sound out of them at times. But they were mainly a bluesy lot. I'd never really thought about it, but you're right. There was a similarity.

Those bluesy guitarists with a fringe of rock sound all got stuck on that edge for some reason. Johny Winter was another, albeit somewhat better known. Some years back he was still soldiering on, but isn't he gone now too?

I also liked the way Ronnie Montrose kind of slidddd through there on his way to that fusion sound. Unusual performer, Montrose.
