    Thanks Chris, that vid brightened my day no end.

    I enjoyed it so much I went on to watch the "Kid Charlemagne" video. The part dealing with Larry Carlton's solo was moving me to tears, such was the quality.

    Royal Scam is one of my favourite albums, and I'll now be hearing it with a new set of ears.

    Sorry I seem to have digressed a bit from your post.

    Don't worry about the digression, Steve.
    I was going to recommend listening to other vids in the series.

    I am surprised there are no other respondents - maybe folk here are less interested in music than they are in having circular arguments about bits of gear

    Absolutely.

    I was watching this on a crappy laptop with no headphones, but it was still the most interesting thing I've seen all week.

    I'm gonna watch the rest of these tomorrow.

    My TV has hundreds of channels, mostly crap - there should be room for a channel that caters for this kind of thing, I'm sure it wouldn't cost much

    These are just great..
    Have to admit I jumped straight to The Dan first, can't resist a bit of Bernard Purdie :-)
    A mainly digital setup with a musical amplifier and endearing 1970's speakers. A CD player that hardly ever gets used and a turntable that is good enough to remind my how enjoyable my old vinyl is. Some cables and things.

    Maybe so but it is quite difficult to have a circular argument about music

    No arguments about my music collection - it's all circular

    Hmm you got me there...

    And you're right, circular arguments about music are difficult. Can we have an oblong argument instead?

    I would argue that CD cases are slightly more oblong than record covers
