HEAT!

HOT! Have this on Vinyl

One of the greatest albums of all time.


Quality Album... Quality Price..;)

Ha, the album cover could be submitted to the Viz for the "up the a**e corner" section.

Gag...

Original Poster

... or it looks like Art Garfunkel has a very big handle-bar moustache and a mouth and chin that looks like Paul Simon...

Paul Simon still has a chip on his shoulder because Art sings Bridge over Troubled Water better than he could ever do.

Where does the poster get 320kbs from? Google Play varies the bitrates. I already have Baby Driver so I downloaded it back to my PC and it was 160kbs

About 5 of the best songs ever written on this album alone! Probably the best album of the week Google have ever done.

Anyone know the difference in track listing to their Greatest Hits?
(got that in my library already l

Should be free by now really. I suppose at least in this case the artists are still alive. Important artists get properly compensated for their works but I think UK copyright law is a bit ridiculous when it comes to how long artists can claim royalties on their works (it's been almost 50 years since this album was released). Then again most of the money still goes to the record companies.

Amazon is amazing, I'll even put the links in for you

BOTW

Greatest Hits


I'm fairly sure every body in the whole wide world has 2.5 copies already

If you don't mind slightly dodgy quality, adverts and streaming. Have a listen - youtube.com/wat…GDi

Weird comment IMHO! If you make something, regardless of when, (and people were still buying it) shouldn't you get paid? Does the fact that this is music rather than a physical object make any difference?

By that logic - can I have a Picasso original for free? They've been kicking about for ages!

Of course you should pay for it but I think works that can be copied like this with little or no cost are quite different. It's a bit like saying piracy is theft. They're both are ethically dubious but they're not the same thing.

Sorry but your analogy with Picasso is silly. These copies are little different if identical to the original. Copies of Picasso's are prints, and obviously are quite different to the original which commands very high prices.

Have you got a printer handy?

It is fairly well known that music downloaded Google is 320 kbps. I personally have downloaded 2518 purchased and free songs from Google and all of them are 320 kbps. If a song is VBR, then it says so in the Song Info window, e.g. Bitrate: 320, or Bitrate: 284 (VBR).

I purchased two Rival Sons albums from Amazon yesterday, downloaded from Amazon and then uploaded to Google Play. One album with 320 kbps (CBR) and the other was ~290 kbps (VBR); I could see the difference in the Song Info window.

I doubt that kept him awake at night given he got all the songwriting royalties.

Heat! Bought this on vinyl about an hour ago for £1.99, now I don't have to convert it, I thank you!

Weird comment IMHO! If someone buys a Picasso today how much of a cut does he get????

But he wrote every song on the album so I think he wins

Probably in my top three albums of all time

Was only educating my wife about this album yesterday

The boxer - tune!!!!

I remember slagging my mum and dad off for listening to Simon and Garfunkel while I was living it up to Bros and New kids on the block. I'd slap my younger self for that now.

I feel sorry for these two blokes...just starting out and how are they going to be multi-millions when their albums sell so cheaply.

VBR (Variable Bit-Rate) will alternate between 160-320kbps, and will show these random values in windows explorer and such. Even a track ripped at 320kbps could show as 160kbps if it's VBR. But the quality difference will not be really noticeable.

Anyway, a great and classic album, and a brilliant price, heat added!
