is FLAC-HD worth the extra $ over FLAC?
I'd say so, it's 24 bit vs 16 bit.
So for those that went for the HD tracks of this - are you happy with them?

Thinking of springing for the upgrade....
You won't regret that choice.  :thumbsup:

Some of it depends on how/on what equipment you listen.  It's really hard for me to tell a difference between the CD-quality flac and flac-hd on any of the players I have (but none of those are high end systems).  Of course, that might not always be true so I don't regret the flac-hd upgrade at all.

Plus, the cost difference is not that great considering the 9 hours of music you get.  And maybe it's wishful thinking, but perhaps if the recordings generate a little more revenue we'll be more likely to see more of them in the future.  In any event, if the extra dollars won't impact you much it's well-worth sending to the MMJ team as a thank you for the time spent producing such wonderful recordings.

THIS!

agreed - and I might be reading between the lines a little too much, but the obvious malaise of last summer's tour, coupled with IG postings by that guy "dadcountry" last summer, which were very drug and party-centric, and now Jim's lyrics to "Just a Fool" all seem to point to a chunk of time where Jim was perhaps a bit lost and searching for direction and grounding.  If I'm onto something here, then perhaps this partially explains the loosely defined hiatus as well.  All this being said, if his dearest and closest pals are circling the wagons and helping him get to a better place, then I suppose all is well in the world.

millerjustin please explain what this "dadcountry" instagram posts were about? drugs and partying? Jim outta control last summer? What's goin on? I'd really like to know because I've sensed a tiny bit of darkness in Jim, but put that off as being a biproduct of how fucked up our world is and how deeply he's connected with that, as all of us should be.

The idea of him being taken for everything he's worth artistically, emotionally and as a human by a bunch of LA industry vultures scares the living shit out of me it's not even funny. If having Kevin there by his side keeps the wolves at bay, maybe that's what this is about.

Either way, we need to make sure Jim's okay.
Take as long as you need if you're not, Jim, it's okay man!!

if someone could please explain to me this "dadcountry" stuff. i'm extremely curious

btw those lyrics to Just A Fool are dark as hell for Jim, but at the same time so honest, bold, badass and has an anthemic quality.
Totally plays with the idea of Jim being done with celebrity .

I know the last things these guys wanna be is celebrities

Kevin mentioned who he was handing the reigns over to on his Instagram feed, so LaLa will remain in business. The Louisville scene is as important to me as Motown, so whatever happens, I have faith in the process, and hope that the magic doesn't leave that holy place.

As far as Jim and his struggles, I can't speak on them, but I can say that I have felt a shift in his energy. He is a sweet, sensitive soul...and I'd imagine there is a lot of personal and external pressure to remain prolific. But the art is in him...it cannot be extracted...and that meditation, and true , salt-of-the-earth pals should help keep him grounded. If he ever needs a sober yoga and wellness coach, I would happily oblige for the small fee of free. 🙄🙃😇

Jim just announced on Instagram that he's going to be on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night, May 23, 2018.

I have all first run shows set to record on my DVR (actually catching up right now on my day off - election day here in Kentucky) and checked the Directv guide to confirm. Yes! He's on for tomorrow night!

I wonder how they sound. The MP3s are some of the greatest MP3s I've EVER heard probably THE best. Ryan didn't just do a good job on these, he took the presence and atmosphere of those shows and put them in an open shotgun cartridge, then began dumping a myriad of assorted paints into the cartridge , using red and blue to denote The Waterfall , green for Circuital, orange for At Dawn, brown for It Still Moves, yellow for Evil Urges, black for Tennessee fire and a weird off purple for Z and then shoved the barrel into our ears and pulled the trigger and a mixmash of everything , including the years and the images , the tours , all these incarnations of these songs and they all just explode into our brains through the ever beating ear drum....

Ryan has destroyed our greatest dreams
Raising the ante until we can't believe they exist anymore
How can one believe it can be this good?
More incredibly,
How crazy is it that these shows ARE that good??
