Haha, yeah. Not much has been going on in Hayley-land lately, but I've checked the forum every single day. Not to metion I've been dealing with adjusting to college life, which has drained all the energy out of me, so I do feel a little bit like a zombie.
CD burned, insert made complete with that picture. Played it on the hifi. Looks and sounds fantastic. I don't know how much of the extra quality that you pay for on play.com finds its way onto the CD though! But it soulds OK to me.
Same here Martin. Looks good although I had to resize the cover artwork from 11.73cm to 12.1cm :2fun: Upped the contrast a bit too
Best wishes Grant
Four years later...
This single has now appeared on one or two hifi streaming sites in lossless FLAC compression i.e. true CD quality, I found it on www.tidal.com which offers a free one month trial, I am currently evaluating 2 or 3 hifi streaming sites for myself. So anyone who wants it in true CD can now get it if available in their own Country, I have tried access via UK and also Ireland and it's on both. Other sites may have it in true CD quality but I haven't found it elsewhere yet. You might need a PC program such as Audacity to grab the uncompressed audio though, or a stream downloader but I haven't tried that.
And especially for you Grant, here is an even better quality image of the single artwork!
Just looked at the terms and pricing for the streaming site, €120 to €360 a year. Instant access to a huge music collection. No shelving required, no dusting of sleeves and cases, lets you try an album you might have bought and only listened to once. no wasted hours searching for an album that you lent to a friend years ago. No scratches on lps doing impressions of a real coal fire. So as long as you have an internet connection and you keep making the payments you have a fabulous music collection.
If you buy one cd a month it's €120 a year and they are yours as long as you can store them somewhere.
I somtimes think modern people exist just to keep making the payments, government needs people to just keep making the payments. We are constant blasted with advertising to sign up to contracts of up to two years for services in particular, not to mention the real objects like the home, car etc.
I sometimes look at a bank statement and wonder, who are all these people with their hands in my pockets ?
Rant over, January blues.. I wish there was an album I could buy that I wanted, that I was looking forward to.
