Writings about Music

Occasionally Coveted

Michael Robinson (Los Angeles)

A few days ago, I learned that the original pressing of my first album, Trembling Flowers, is selling for $800 one place, and $200 another place. And a person online was attempting to learn where one could access an apparent site (!?) where one may listen to the master tapes of my second album, Fire Monkey. We all hope that the music we create is timeless, of course, forever sounding fresh, and hearing and feeling different things each time we listen.

To be clear, I entirely agree that optimum audio quality is preferable, and believe Tidal has the finest quality for audiophiles. And I wish to thank this unknown person for reminding me to look into other ways to make available original lossless files for all the albums.

There is a new album, Lotus-Pollen, in four movements, that I am excited about, set to be released later this month, no additional info available at this time.
