Isn't it amazing how acts will go from Opening to Headliner and back again?  Sometimes there are odd combinations too, like Hendrix opening for the Monkees.

In keeping with the Boston theme, when I heard this in '76 it was some of the best orchestrated rock music I'd ever heard, just love this medley and arrangement. I bought a "Half Speed Mastered" vinyl copy CBS made, and still have it, it was a great test for dynamic range in a modern stereo of the day, sure sounds great in digital now....love it...

I love that intro!  Sort of ELP like?   

 

So do you have to play the Half Speed Master at half speed or is that just the speed the master was cut at?  I can imagine the master had much better clarity.

Thanks for your question Jani, CBS records made a limited number of Boston's first album cut with half speed mastering, released in 1980, and sold them to collectors back then at a premium (~ $ 20). They were cut at half speed, just as google explains below. Last I checked on E bay they were fetching about a hundred dollars today. They were sought after for their superior dynamic range on a vinyl medium.......

 

What exactly is half-speed mastering? It's a vinyl cutting process whereby the disc-cutting lathe for an LP is run at half the speed – so for an album that would be 16 and two thirds, which is half of 33 and a third – and the master source is run at half the speed as well.

Without cheating I do have to say I don't recall.  I guess the data bank does get clogged sometimes! 

 

Thanks for the explanation of Half Speed Master Cyndee.  $20 was pricey back then.

I do know the City of Boston was called Tremontaine before being changed.  There is a major street named Tremont now that runs along Boston Common (city park).

Boston was Mother's Milk and Middle Earth are the two I remember.

 

Like Chicago was Chicago Transit Authority and before that The Next Big Thing.

 

Blue Oyster Cult originally used Soft White Underbelly

 

And I don't even want to tell you what Kiss considered using....oy...

 

2 other interesting things are what the names Steely Dan and 10cc actually mean. Not allowed by our rules to tell you here.

Just right ofr Friday - when I lived in Cleveland in the late 1970's every Friday at 6 PM Murray Saul on WMMS would play this version of Friday on my Mind (Trivia the original version of the song was done by The Easybeats that had Angus Young's older brother Malcolm who went on the form AC/DC) - the other cool thing WMMS did was at 2 PM Sunday morning they played Maggot Brain by Funkadelic....

@SaraAW

 

good choices - I especially love Weezer, They Might Be Giants and DEVo (Devo was right - our country is de-evolving)

Shay if you are from Cleveland do you remember a band called Rocket From The Tombs?

 They were part of the original punk bands that came out of Cleveland in the mid 70s.

So I'm 62 - does that mean I only love 70s/80s music? Absolutely not. My daughter accidentally introduced me to EDM a few years ago at a music festival in England. And having started clubbing at the age of 52, I thoroughly love modern club music. This is the latest music I'm into from K-391 and Alan Walker....

 Another cool band from the 60's.  Can't forget "Friday on my mind"  (Even my old man looks good!)

Glad you have joined us @Niamh... and glad to see you so opened minded about music - any style music done well deserves a listen in my books.

I was looking for a "like" button on here - does one exist? I like to be considered as non comformist - and that applies to many aspects of my life. I hate being classified or categorised. It winds me up!

      I had my first session of genital electrolysis today. Today I had the hair around the base of the penis treated and on Thursday I will have the perineum treated. I actually found the pain much milder than on my face. My electrologist said most clients find genitals more painful. It was difficult to apply the numbing cream (today I put it on both the perineum and penis because I didn't know how much the electrologist could get done during the appointment). On the perineum I can't see where I'm applying it while I'm applying it. I have to go back and forth between applying and looking in a mirror. Also, walking and sitting cause the cream and plastic wrap to move around so I had to reapply it. In another thread I talked about the possibility of getting erect https://www.transgenderpulse.com/forums/topic/81268-electrolysis-while-erect/ . Unfortunately, I did get fully erect at the beginning of my appointment. However, the electrologist didn't react to it or seem offended. Around the beginning, she told me not to get embarrassed and that she's done this many times before. She probably said this before noticing that I was erect. It was while I was on the table without pants but while she was preparing. The erection was the part I found embarrassing. Hopefully being noticeably embarrassed made my electrologist realize that I didn't want the erection. She also found the diagram unclear. It said to clear a strip 2.5 inches wide starting 1 inch above the anus but didn't say how long of an area to clear. I e-mailed my surgeon and hopefully will get a response in time. It's 3 1/2 hours after the end of the appointment and I still feel numb in part of my genitals. It doesn't last nearly that long on my face. I hope it's not a problem. I have the least feeling in the glans of the penis but didn't put any numbing cream on that area. Strange.

      @QuestioningAmber glad you look cute in the outfit.   Sadly that's a feeling I will never experience but I sure am glad for you. 👍 thank you for your kind words about my brother. I wasn't that close but mortality is something that hits closer when one losses a sibling.

      Hello Margie, how are things going with your daughter. has she started to transition?  As a mother in the same position as you. I am here to support you.

      I don't visit for a day and things happen. @Shay sorry for the loss of your older brother.   @Emily michelleLike everyone else. Hope your wife gets through this soon.     Well as I said earlier, yesterday was my 35th wedding anniversary also the 14th anniversary of my father passing. I think he passed on that day to spite us. everything was nice. We both worked and went for a beautiful dinner. I do believe that my wife may have alzhimers She said something last evening that I knew was totally wrong. Of course, I cannot remember what.   So today the FNG got Chinese delivered. He tosses me a fortune cookie. It is totally correct for me. "A great pleasure in life is doing what others say you can't"   Hugs, to all.   Kymmie

      I voted in our municipal elections last week.  They had online voting, and it was pretty painless.  I had to talk to the returning officer and send a copy of my name change certificate, to get my name updated on the voting register.   Definitely get out there and vote, y'all.
    • QuestioningAmber
      @Shay My condolences on your loss, I know losing a loved on is hard, and the closer you are the harder it is.   @Emily michelle Hopefully you come up negative and your wife bounces back quickly and well.   @Willow I concur on the remembering the guidelines and getting your vaccinations.   Today has been strange, I have felt good and kind of cute with the outfit I am wearing. I am still feeling calm since starting HRT, which my therapist was kind of surprised by because she said too much can cause anxiety, so I don't know. I have two remaining family members to come out to, then I have come out to everyone that I will do until I socially transition and go full time. My mom is already trying to talk about what my plans are for Thanksgiving, and we aren't at Halloween, lol.

      Voted at the city clerk's office two weeks ago Thursday.   Also, had to move this to a more appropriate topic area. Sorry 'bout that but rules are rules. I went with general because this thread is non-partisan in any way. It's just, "Please do your civic duty." I'll move it again if it gets political.   Hugs!

      Great hair style. Seems to fit your head shape well.

      @Heather NicoleI’ve been on testosterone for nine months, and I have noticed more physical changes than mental or emotional ones. I thought that I would feel different on T, but for the most part, I just cry less easily and am preoccupied by certain types of *thoughts*. That in itself is a pretty big change, though, since I’ve never had much of a libido.    I imagine that I appreciate the physical changes more than your average cis male, since I have always wanted them but was given a different type of puberty. I admit that the sheer amount of hair is a lot to process as someone who used to shave their legs. The voice change is my favorite aspect of the second puberty by far.    Overall, I look more different on the outside than I feel on the inside, which I like.
