I use Nero--freebie version. Much easier to arrange the tracks.

15 October 2005, 08:39 PM
Is that Nero 6- the trial version? I checked their site & that looked like the best free version, though they don't tell when the expiration date is on it before you download.

I'd love to record LP's to disc. Then there's all those songs i'd love to edit out some of the beginning or some of the end of the song- like that Wilco song that has a 5 or 6 minute drone to it after the main song part ends. If i have to pay just for those two features, i might do it.

i found a copy of the 2 disc set "The Essential Johnny Cash", so there's a lot of early to mid 7os JC on my jukebox.

Plus i been listening a lot to French singer Keren Ann. Some of her music is in English but whatever language, the gal can sure sing. i used to hide from French language indie/pop/jazz stuff. Now i'm a sophisticated hick, i guess.

Jeepers, haven't posted much in my fave forum of late. Does anyone even read posts here anymore?
