    In the latest issue of Perfect Sound Forever <http://www.perfectsoundforever.com>, you'll find (among other things):

    Obsolete format revived? by Ben Dyment
    "They're the veritable demode bane of thrift store shelves, forgotten basement boxes and swap meets the world over. Whether you view 'em as an easy answer for its time or the auditory world's pet rock, they made their mark and kept it up for a period
    before falling victim to the perpetual Format Wars, discarded amongst the other obsolete debris of last century."

    Which ones are tops? by Darren Barakat
    "On Memorial Day weekend, radio stations across the country will count down the top 500 classic rock songs of all time to coincide with the Greatest Spectacle in Racing, the Indianapolis 500. This tradition was once a celebration of the greatest music in
    history, but it's become a farce that's more lemon than hot rod. Published lists of the top classic rock songs of all time, mostly from radio stations, keep getting twisted and bent further out of alignment with history even as our ability to analyze
    data grows."

    Their origins, back to 3000 BC by Jack Gold-Molina
    "Cultural festival gatherings have occurred in the United Kingdom and in Europe in some form throughout the entire evolution of modern man. While there is no single date of the first festival, music has always had a key role. Expressions of artistic
    creativity, including music and sculpture, emerged with some of the first modern humans around the time that they began colonizing Europe during the last ice age, approximately 40,000 years ago."

    RIP two great prog bassist/singers by Gary Gomes
    "The deaths of Greg Lake and John Wetton so close to each other has a certain sad symmetry to it. Both were tremendously talented musicians who first achieved notoriety as bass players for King Crimson, Lake in the original incarnation of the group and
    Wetton towards the end of Crimson's first run. Both were great bass players with extraordinary technique."

    We're always looking for good writers and/or ideas so let us know if you have anything to share.

    See you online,
