    Mr Tribe,

    In addition to your excellent avatar (I'm a very, very big Beefheart fan and have been for close to 40 years) I also noticed that the display on Touch shows that you where playing the Dead's complete Winterland 1977 recordings (and like your avatar, another fine choice). what intrigues me is that the display shows "Now Playing 23 of 68" which would indicate that you placed all nine CDs into one folder or grouped them into one album. Am I correct? I also group all my multi-disc sets into one folder and list them as one album, which I find works very well and keeps my music directory nice and tidy.

    Back to the Captain, I managed to see him live on several occasions and even saw him way back in the early 1970s with the original Magic Band. I highly recommend getting hold of a copy of the book (it's really more of a glorified booklet) "Trout Mask Replica" by Kevin Courrier, which is Volume 44 of the "33-1/3" series published by Continuum. A very worth while read.

    Mr Ralph,

    How very astute of you to notice the nuances in my post. I wholeheartedly accept your compliments and acknowledge your same excellent choice of artists. Yes, you are correct, I placed the entire 9 albums in the one folder and separated them using FLAC tags to determine album # of #. I also name the files prefixed with the album # (e.g. 1-01-TrackName.flac). All my multi-disc sets are ripped this way.

    Very envious that you had a chance to see the Captain live, not once but several times. Thank you for the book recommendation. I am currently working my way through "Beefheart: Through the Eyes of Magic" by John "Drumbo" French, 800+ pages of some very entertaining yet many times saddening recollections. I do not think I will ever listen to TMR again and view it in the same light.

    I like the 15yr and Lord of the Isles but I do have a special 26yr old Ardbeg awaiting a sampling.
