I rather download an MP3 than to listen to Blue Note DMM. Some morons are asking 50 Bucks for DMM pressing on ebay. A sucker is born everyday! The most I've paid is 5 bucks and that's because Eric Dolphy "Other Aspect" Lp has only been released on DMM. Its still extremely thin and metallic.
I'm curious how many DMM-which, by the way, stands for Direct Metal Mastering-masters you've cut to have such an opinion? And how many years as a mastering engineer? Because you clearly must have a deep understanding of the process to feel so strongly about it.
Oh, and just for the record I'm one of the morons who used to cut DMM masters.
I'm curious to see how an "ENGINEER" failed to comprehend my post? I'm confused? Did I call the people who "Mastered" these DMM....morons? or was it the ebay seller trying to get 50 bucks for a blue note DMM? and has been trying to sell this Blue note DMM pressing for the past year now. oh, my bad! Are you the ebay seller
So now we need to be engineers to have an opinion on how they sound? a deep understanding of the process? lol. Blue note DMM sound friggin awful to me, Period. And just in case you missed it. Which seems to be alot. I don't know about other DMM's which I clearly stated in my last post. But I'll tell you what. For people who are just starting to collect Blue note's, Here is an article published 15 years ago:http://kleene.ss.uci.edu/~rmay/Bluenote.html
And here we have Londonjazzcollector. Actually, the first time I ran across this article, His description of people who thought that BN DMM sounded good was at the time, the most histerical piece on vinyl collecting I've ever read. I'm still laughing
Now there is just some story about a village or island.http://londonjazzcollector.wordpress.com/
