Monsieur Maurice has got his new turntable to work !

I told you all about the fact that Monsieur Maurice bought himself a new turntable, and how I couldn't get it to work on my Mac. Well... I finally got it. I've got to use a little device called iMic which I fortunately already owned, and I'm using the Griffin software  Final Vinyl to record everything.
Now it's wait and see if the software captures the music properly.
As a try out project I'm currently capturing a BBC record called "At Your Request - David Jacobs - Your 16 Favourite Tracks" It's a compilation album from 1989, featuring a selection of listeners most requested tracks by renowned artists, from the Radio 2 programme "At Your Request".
It features the best rendition of 'Me And My Shadow' I have ever heard, by the marvelous Peggy Lee.

I will let you all know how my project turned out.

See ya,

Tequila - Wes Montgomery

 Today I present to you a great jazz album.
Smooth and finger snappin' grooves.

Side 1
01 Tequila
02 Little Child (Daddy Dear)
03 What The World Needs Now Is Love
04 The Big Hurt

Side 2
01 Bumpin' On Sunset
02 How Insensitive (Insensatez)
03 The Tumb
04 Midnight Mood

You might recognize this album with this cover and with a few more alternate tracks.

I'm sorry about the delay in posting but I'm experiencing some technical difficulties at the moment. Monsieur Maurice decided that he wanted a new turntable. So he bought one online. It's a nifty, sturdy, 10 kilo heavy thing. And I'm very pleased with it. But because his furry paws are useless in installing it, he asked me to do it. Now I'm a technical kinda gal, and it shouldn't have been a problem... but I can't seem to get my Mac to 'see' the turntable. Tried all kinds of things but to no avail. So I had to set up my 'old' turntable again so I could rip a platter for you folks this week.
I hope to solve this so I can play with my new toy and Monsieur Maurice can watch the disk spin round and round and round ...
