If you've watched the "RMAF Wrap-up" video on the AnalogPlanet YouTube channel (which today hit 30,000 subscribers), you no doubt remember the surprise "name check" encounter with record restoration expert Charles Kirmuss.

2012 wasn’t all that long ago and culturally not that much has changed, yet from that year to the September 27th release this year of the 50th anniversary edition of Abbey Road is how long The Beatles made records.

This final RMAF video includes the Pro-Ject room, an image from which was inadvertently used in a previous video. Also here is the interesting $1699.99 Direct Drive turntable from Cambridge Audio and a few more analog-y items that will be of interest.

Prince's standout album 1999 that included "Little Red Corvette", "1999" and "Delirious" first released in 1982 when 1999 seemed a long way off gets the deluxe treatment in time for the holidays. Along with the standard remastered by Bernie Grundman at 192/24 bit edition (as a double 180g purple vinyl LP) there will be a Deluxe 2 CD/2LP version and a Super Deluxe 5 CD+DVD/10LP+DVD edition (all will include downloads and streaming).

You can always get what you want: ABKCO will release a remastered by Bob Ludwig "stand-alone" CD or vinyl LP version of Let It Bleed if that's what you want, but if you want it all, you can have it all.
