General audio topics that don't fit into specific categories.

Back in the day, I owned a commercial RTR of The Mystic Moods Orchestra's "Stormy Weekend."

Compared to the usual early-to-mid 1960s LP, it was AMAZING. Compared to a Shure cartridge on a Garrard idler-wheel turntable.

Even better sound: Roger Williams, "More than a Miracle." That was released on the Kapp label, which, like Westminster, had at least audiophile aspiration.

I also remember (from the 1970s) small ads in the back of Stereo Review (small ads, not classified ads) for high-quality RTR tapes from Barclay-Crocker which were dubbed at 4X and not 16X.
