man, one of the great bummers in music history is how shitty the recording equipment was for way too long in jamaica.  so many great cuts with low quality mono sound.  havent listened to what you posted yet so not sure it applies here.

The lo-fi recordings are part of why it “feels” the way it does, and I think there’d be loss of character if they had better equipment - loss of part of the reason people love listening to it. Personally, I wouldn’t wanna change it one bit, but I hear you. There are definitely a few examples of music (globally) where it’s just plain bad, though.

Like original delta blues? I wouldn’t wanna listen to it if they’d had good equipment. It is what it is, in part, because of the equipment. Quality is not linear (not inferring that’s what you were saying)

It’s a mix of artists, so it varies

fair point. i find that the equipment really did a particularly poor job with the low end sounds, and based on later recordings those are really important to jamaican music (in a way i dont think they were to delta blues type recordings).

Also good point. Yeah, OG blues didn’t have the lows & audio depth like early reggae beats/bass.

I watched Heat again last night. Michael Mann is a genius.

Anybody else getting into the Bomb Hole podcast? I'm hoping it evolves into a snowboarding version of The Nine Club. So far pretty good.

loll, yeah man so good. Shared the epi w/ Zak Hale on the Pod thread, that one was so jokes and solid listen, overall.

Hale’s “shittin’ next to Gronk” story was absolute gold.

I’ve gotten back into skating in a big bad way, so The Nine Club has been my go-to for the last couple months. I had no idea the pod even existed until recently. It’s cool to hear about what’s been going on with some of my favourite pros from back in the day.
