I did enjoy working with Lorber. He understood my sound and I cannot complain about anything he did musically. As far as business goes, he's very shady. You'll note that Wilson refers to him as the "very shifty-looking Alan Lorber". Lorber's reputation was already well known in the industry.

Irwin , I take it you haven't been replacing all the songs on music factory or have you? I've listened to past shows thinking it was all source
Avatar 5:12pm Bruce Arnold-Orpheus:

Hi Mike, I think a mono issue was put out as well. I have seen a UK release in mono. Lorber re-released some of the album in mono via iTunes, etc. We do not recommend these digital downloads as they do not match the original mix. In most cases, the mix is muddy and Lorber added an echo effects for some reason. All of the reissues he has released on his Iris Music Group label are sonically substandard. We discussed this during an interview with Steve Stanley, host of The Now Sounds on Luxuria Radio. You can find that interview on YouTube.

Bruce, what CD releases of Orpheus material would you recommend, then?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm Irwin:

Bruce: Steve Stanley's a bud. Great guy, great ears.

@Irwin, do you have the original air date for TMF episode 15?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm rrg:

Air date would likely have varied with locale since this was syndicated, but Irwin might have notes that accompanied the original to indicate its recording date.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

We're prepared for every Emergency. In fact - we have them all right here...Which would you prefer??
...Looking forward to Archive for the Orpheus - Thx Indeed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm Irwin:

yez: not here, but I have scans of the tape boxes, which indicate date they were recorded. I don't think there were specific air dates. They aired whenever each station scheduled them on a weekly basis.
Avatar 5:31pm Yez:

Record dates would be even better. :-) Thx!

Tom Wilson referred to the "upcoming" album by The Animals, "The Twain Shall Meet", and that was released in May 1968.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Uncle Michael:

Steve Stanley; great guy, great ears, pretty terrific graphic artist as well.
  5:34pm zopa:

I wonder who the Twain met.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm Uncle Michael:

The Twain met Never.

& also Mark.

oooh, Wayne Shorter.
Avatar 5:39pm Fredericks:

I frequently think I don't care Shorter. Then, I hear something like this and have to reconsider.
Avatar 5:40pm Listening Out There:

...Elvin Jones too, I think...
Avatar 5:40pm geezerette:

clean lines :D

What and who was that last song?

That could make the difference, L.O.T..

Yep, Elvin on skins, McCoy on keys.

rrg: There have been three Orpheus CD compilations: “The Best of Orpheus” on Ace Records in 1995, “The Complete Orpheus” on Akarma in 2000 and “The Very Best of Orpheus” on Varese Sarabande in 2001. The Ace compilation comes from a 16bit remaster. It’s includes some unreleased tracks including one that takes clips from the interview you just heard. The Akarma release is all four albums plus some unreleased tracks using the same digital remasters as the Ace. The Varese release was done in 24bit by Dan Hersch of DigiPrep and is sonically the best of the three - although it only has 16 tracks. All of the digital downloads are from the 16bit muddy remasters and have been altered by Lorber.

Here is a link to the interview we did with Steve Stanley on Luxuria. Purdie, Howie and my son John were in the studio with me on the phone: youtu.be...
Avatar 5:45pm Yez:

@Bruce, does your archivist :-) know the date(s) the interview was recorded? 1968, I know, but anything more specific?
  5:46pm judy from croton:

Oh that's nice. Ben F does Steely D.
Very right
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm rrg:

Thanks, Bruce. I'll look for those CDs.
  5:51pm flashbazbo:

Purdie played with the Dan. And the Dan made Terence Boylans first LP with him.

Behind the armoire?
Avatar 5:53pm Bruce Arnold-Orpheus:

Hi Yez, No. All we know is it was recorded on January 5th, 1968. I don't remember where it was recorded. Paul Payton from WBRU was in the studio (Wilson thanks him at the end) but he doesn't recall where it was recorded either. From some reports, it may have aired on WNEW in NYC (maybe live). It was carried on numerous college radio stations nationally.

Avatar 5:54pm geezerette:

I envy music's universality and that it's played by groups of people.
No one ever says musicians are working at whichever place together. It's a language, musicians converse with it. They play.
Visual language can be discussed afterwards, in verbal shorthand.
Both pursuits labor intensive but visual is a mostly /always?, solitary pursuit.
Avatar 5:55pm Yez:

Bruce, thanks! That was before I'd heard any of your music, sadly (it took me until spring), or I'd have tuned in.

I love Tom Waits trying to be sweet. Aw...
Almost as great as him singing children's songs (thereby freaking them out)

Thank you, Irwin. Excellent show today.

Love that infinitely elastic mind of yours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@g: ...It's interesting that w/ fMRIs now, it's determined that Music uses more parts of the brain @ once than any other activity... Negotiating w/ others in its' creation might reflect on that... Myself - those moments when you're both listening & creating & not thinking about amy of it - it all just seems to be happening - my very very favorite thing - & all too rare (so far)...

Yes, I like Bob's too.
