I still have the turntable, but the amp and preamp are no more. I'm in the market for replacements.

Originally released in May 1967, as I was graduating from high school, A Whiter Shade Of Pale by British band Procol Harum.

An orchestral version performed by Procol Harum in 2006 with the Danish National Concert Orchestra, very faithful to the original.

Music like this isn't made any more.

They don't write songs anymore. Just repetitive hooks. Shine Like A Diamond and Baby I'm Worth It come immediately to mind. Completely void of talent, content or musical artistry.

Rock Candy Funk Party: Just bought all the cd/dvd's from Joe Bonamassa's web site. Its a side project that Joe is a member of. Kinda of Funky Jazz to me. Its not till the 3rd release that there is any vocals. Highly recommend. Funky fun music.

Too true - how can a song have 5-6-7 or more executive producers? Modern "pop" music is crap pure and simple.

To my mind, pop music has always been garbage. The only artist out there right now is Adele.
