Come on, somebody recommend something for me to buy. I'm going to get paid tonight, and I really need to start buying more music and less comic books.

I will start with a recommendation I made a while back in another thread. Our local band Hal's Angels has a new CD that is great for pretty much all times of dancing. Their site has music clips from the CD. The band is a self-proclaimed Kansas City Jazz style band. The cool thing is that they make u...

Music you should buy

I was thinking about how cool it is to get music recommendations from you guys. Then I was thinking about how un-cool it is that I usually don't have money when I read those recommendations, and then when I GET money, I can never remember where the thread is where I saw that cool recommendation. Wha...

So I ask the question again. Because no one has addressed it. People who think swapping music is bad because it takes away money from the record companies and indirectly from musicians. Do these people also only buy new CD's because buying used CD's gives no money to the record companies either. At...

I knew a guy who would get around 15 records a day mailed to him for no charge from the record companies. Why? because they wanted their songs played at dance clubs, because then other people would hear it and want to buy it. I don't think record labels do that for the relatively obscure music that...

Trading collections

I recently was talking to a local DJ, who traded his ENTIRE collection with another "DJ." I'm not going to name names, but the person the local DJ traded with was a fairly well-known personality in the community, and this person gave a huge ammount of music to the local DJ, who received gigs upon gi...

I will often play a little bit different stuff when you are in the house, Ron.

I seem to remember some discussion about this perhaps in this thread or perhaps in another. Regarding the people who linger around the booth and talk to you nonstop while you are DJing, I think it would be funny to make a CD that has a track #1 that would fit almost anywhere into any set (like Splan...

It was Dennis. I can't find a copy either, but I'm sure he has one. You might try posting on swingorama.com. He reads that board fairly regularly I think.

Hal's Angels have a CD out and it's definitely worth getting. Their sound on the CD is a little bit smoother than their live show. I personally like the way they sound live better, but I would still definitely recommend the CD. The cool thing is that multiple members of the band do vocals. You can a...

Did he sit in with the band, or bring his own band, or what?
