Hey there Uncle Ott!~
I just wanted to say that after accumulating both your Fairchildren and Mir vinyls, I've finally equipped myself with a turntable and stylus worthy of the virgin run on these records, and I am blown away.
There is nothing that I've experienced sonically quite like hearing these records that I hold so near and dear to my heart being played by nothing but a spinning mechanism and an amplifier, with no digital technology in the mix whatsoever. It was a total revelation, one that I never expected, and it's brought your work to a whole different level than what my beloved Winamp could ever achieve.
As always, thank you so much for all of your work, thank you for being an inspiration to so many of us, and yeah thanks for providing the soundtrack for a handful of the most blissful and fulfilling experiences of my life. :D
You're most welcome.
Yeah, I was blown away by the sound of the vinyl too. When we pressed Fairchildren I'd been listening to it digitally for about a two years non-stop and I thought I knew how it sounded. The first listen on vinyl was a revelation.
The Skylon vinyls should be arriving any day now. :0)
Thanks for listening.
