DJANGO MANGO - NO RISK NO FUN



Well... Got some problems with recording, I've been using Wavelab for many years, got a new computer last week, bought a (pirated) copy of Wavelab and it turns out that copy only saves mp3's on one channel, weird, it does save wav files on two channels.... Been looking at some other programs to record vinyl and cassettes, just downloaded Audacity but it's pretty complicated and I don't really have all that much time right now to spend on learning the ropes, we'll see what happens lah....

Anywaym here's a beautiful cd from Django Mango that came out in 1996 and was recorded in the Jugala studio in Bandung....

OSCAR



Last year when I was in Holland I ran into an old buddy of mine, Oscar, and he gave me a few cd's of his home made music. Now, you never know what to expect, but I knew that Oscar is a very fine musician and has been a very fine musician for many, many years. As you can hear, Neil Young and Bob Dylan are some of his influences and somehow I hear a bit of The Legendary Pinkdots in there too, really, wonderful music, all intruments and the vocals done by Oscar....

Oscar, buddy, this one's for you!

LES PAUL & MARY FORD 78's










Here are four INCREDIBLE 78's from the great Les Paul and Mary Ford, amazing stuff.... I recorded this first on wavelab, then tried to find the right speed with Fruity Loops, it;s easy when there's singing but it can be pretty hard with instrumentals so I hope I've got the speed right.... Personally, Les Paul blows my mind! Got my hands on a whole bunch of 78's, stuff from the 30's and 40's by Dizzy Gillespie, Dinah Shore, Artie Shaw, Lionel Hampton, Count Basie and a whole lot of Indonesian ones. Will post those soon too!!!
