Editorial for November 2012
Published on November 1, 2012
The November drawing/giveaway is the award of two DVDs from Eagle Rock Entertainment: Peter Gabriel’s Secret World - a two-hour-12 minute 1993 concert (reviewed here), and The Doobie Brothers – Let the Music Play - with live performances of many of their hits, plus a rockumentary running over two hours. Three AUDIOPHILE AUDITION readers will receive both DVDs by registering this month. Secret World is newly restored and remastered Grammy-winning concert, with the elaborate staging Gabriel is known for. The Doobie Brothers DVD explores the incredible career and achievements of this band which broke up in 1982. The three winners will be announced here early next month.
Here are the six winners of the six $65 value double-vinyl 45 rpm albums, our October drawing: Noel Perrin, Fishers IN; Tom Roy, Sylmar CA; Marcial Bacani, Houston TX; Jeffry Rosen, Los Angeles CA; Fabian Laprese, Florence KY; Robert Ranheim, Brooklyn NY. Blessings on the turntables of all six vinyl fans!
AUDIOPHILE AUDITION began in 1985 as a weekly national radio series hosted by John Sunier, which aired for 13 1/2 years on up to 200 public radio and commercial stations coast to coast. In September 1998 its web site for programming information was expanded to the present Internet publication.
November 2012 is our 164th issue, and features improved navigation and enhanced appearance using Word Press. All disc reviews (151 for August!) are added thru the month as they are written and received, usually daily. The most recent reviews appear at the top of each Section Index. The Home Page lists the five latest published reviews, the Section Index lists the past two months of reviews, and the Archive goes back to January 2001. The Disc Index lists all past reviews. Audiophile vinyl reviews are now included in the SACD/Hi-Res Section.
