Ian Anderson: "Jethro Tull: The String Quartets"

Just purchased this...kinda like the old Tull classics played by a string quartet. I'm considerably older now than when all of these Tull albums were originally released.

In any case, the following quote from Ian was in the the liner notes, and seemed appropriate to post in this forum:

"Cutting vinyl these days is a much more satisfying experience than it ever was back in the 70s. The lovingly cared-for Neumann cutting lathes may be fifty years old but are still the industry standard in the new age of vinyl which a growing number of fans embrace as their preferred listening experience these days. I am almost--almost--enthused enough to dig out my Dual or Technics turntable, SME tone arm and Shure V15 cartridges. Toss in the Tannoy 15" Monitor Golds and you have a recipe for traditional vinyl delirium and aural ecstasy or, more like, a terminally-deformed 12" disc and nasty headache to boot. Each to their own."
