Digital recorders today are much better than recorders back in 1985, yet all recordiings from 20-30 years ago are better. You can actually hear the songs, melody, the doktor, the bass, and the voice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDgvEc_uPGo#t=2500 :innocent: Despite tha fact that it is copied a L...

In the end it is just individual experience and we can argue all day about who has the better taste. It's all subjective. I didn't think the Wembley gigs back in the day were great for instance. Most people probably thought they were brilliant. Each to his/her own. The common thread seems to be tha...

Digital recorders today are much better than recorders back in 1985 It's not the recorders themselves. It's more the microphones used & where you stand to tape. The recorder just captures a source. If you plug crappy mics into a studio quality recorder & stand in a crappy place the result won't be ...

Nice choice of song for the occasion.
He does I must admit, even thoug the version seems to short, and not hard enough. Sounding good a song or two in a whole show is not enough though.
