Re: Hungercity?

The latest I've heard is that nobody seems to know what's going on with Hunger City. Apparently staff is in a funk ever since the Royal Wedding.

In the mean time, I need more Dylan.

Re: Hungercity?

I knew it was going downhill when dinotunes was cutting up old torrents of Supersonic and re-seeding them in single episodes. How many versions of Gilbert O'Sullivan's "Alone Again, Naturally" does one really need?

Nope, they ran out of BOWIE recordings. They once started with Bowie recording but kept on re-re-recycling the same old stuff in brand new clothes. BORING.

Re: Hungercity?

That is a valid point, but you must admit - It was "Dylan Central".

I think beta SP was not the standard at that point 3/4 inc tape would be my guess. But you make a very good point, prior to digital video Beta SP was the standard for highest quality broadcast tape. Good call (as usual).

Re: Hungercity?

You can Slag HungerCity all you like,
But I think Any torrent Site that disappears is one less place to find Music,
An` thats why we`re here on the InterWebb thingy
Isn`t it?

Agree with you on that - but only to compare recordings.

The old-fashioned way of trading (mail) makes more fun. Torrents are mainly re-re-recycling the same old recordings, different cover art and mostly inferior quality.

Most of the interesting Bowie stuff I have will never appear on torrents, mail trade only. Most of us - old-fashioned collectors/tapers - like it that way.
