Spent a part of the morning ripping CDs to add to the hi-res music player I bought recently.
I hadn’t done any ripping for a long time, considering it a thing of the past, but I quite enjoyed the process. There’s something quite calming and satisfying about the process of ripping, filing, and making sure all the tags are imported correctly.
Now I have the (almost) complete back catalogue of Joni Mitchell in Flac files to listen to on headphones and sounding very nice. The Kate Bush box set is next.
I don’t listen to the early Marillion albums as much as I used to but had to have this new deluxe edition of Script For A Jester’s Tear. I was too young when progressive rock was in it’s 70’s pomp and I see this album as the first prog album of my generation.
It does sound a bit dated now and they went on to make better albums but this one still has a special place in my history. Listening to Garden Party gives me a real pang of nostalgia.
This series of deluxe editions has been worth every penny.
