Editorial for November 2008

Welcome to Adobe GoLive 6

For our November drawing-giveaway Concord Music Group is offering a pair of their classic vinyl discs to turntable-capable AUDIOPHILE AUDITION readers. Vinyl is making a comeback in all genres of music; collectors have insisted for years that their analog sound is often better than that of digital recordings. Concord Jazz has again released 16 of their top albums in 12-inch vinyl versions, and ten winners will be selected from those who register on the site this month – they will each receive both The Bill Evans Trio “Waltz for Debby” LP as well as Sonny Rollins’ famous “Saxophone Colossus” LP. Please mention your analog slant in the comments field of your registration.  
 
Here are the winners of their choice of one of the three HDTV antennas from Antennas Direct — our October drawing/giveaway.  Congrats to all!:  Marshall Taylor, Radnor PA; Wally Babcock, Prattsburgh, NY; Robert Gilbert, Norcross, GA; Noel Perrin, Indianapolis, IN; Chris Nguyen, San Francisco, CA; Carol Strand, Waupaca, WI.
 


   

 General Editorial 

 

AUDIOPHILE AUDITION began in 1985 as a weekly national radio series hosted by John Sunier, which aired for 13 1/2 years on up to 200 public radio and commercial stations coast to coast. In September 1998 its site for programming information was expanded to the present Net publication.
 
November 08 is our 117th issue, and we’re publishing more and more disc reviews each month All of them – well over 100 per month – are added throughout the month as they are written and received, usually on a daily basis. We have organized the web site to make it easy to navigate and find content. The most recent reviews appear at the top of each Section Index. The Home Page lists the five latest published reviews, the Section Index lists the past two months of reviews, the Archive goes back to June 1, 2005, and for all reviews by month prior to that you need to click on the Old Archive, which goes back to 2001. The Disc Index also lists past reviews.
