Was noodling around some music questions, and stumbled across the following thread on "what was the first all-digital music release". Long thread over four years, with the usual problems - people coming into it in the middle without reading original or other earlier posts, etc. But much very informed discussion on a really quite complex question. Quite a lot of early all-digital recording (e.g. Ry Cooder's Bop Till You Drop), but recording AND mixing a much later thing.

Interesting for music/recording dweebs.
