Hugh Laurie - Let it RainYes you read that right – the actor that was House MD also (Blackadder & Jeeves and Wooster) – is a wonderful musician. I bought his albums from Amazon MP3 Store – The First album I bought was his “Didn’t It Rain” – Then I also bought his fist Album – “Let them Talk” – Or here is a list of all of his albums.

I am just awe inspired listening to his music. I just love the NOLO Blues- This is a Classy Jazzy Blues – I love both albums, but If I had to pick I would pick the second Album – “Didn’t It Rain” as my favorite.  You can really see that Hugh Laurie really loves this music, and it really shows. His piano playing and a great blend of sultry voices makes this a great album to listen to.  This album besides featuring Hugh Laurie – it is augmented with great performances from Gaby Moreno, Jean McClain and Taj Mahal. It is hard to pick one song from both albums that I really didn’t enjoy, but I would have to say from “Let them Talk” I really enjoyed St James Infirmary.

Simple iPhone Speaker Enhancer – Low Tech

I could not pass up sharing this simple smartphone ( Blackberry, iPhone, Droid etc) Speakerphone Enhancer. I wish I would have thought of this – This really is a quick and dirty (only if you leave the glass dirty) Solution that really works. I can’t believe how well this works. I tried it today and the sound is increased – Now this is not hi-fi – But it works in a pinch when you need a little extra boost. Make sure to put the speaker side down – The bottom of the iPhone down. This causes an echo chamber and increases the volume of the sound. Just a little quick and easy solution. Great from when you are away from your regular speakers or dock.

But if you want a little (Well a lot better speaker system for your iphone – I would suggest checking out this page at amazon: Iphone Speaker Docks.

Info From UnPlugged.

Virtual Sound – Auditory Illusions and Phase 4 Stereo

Auditory Illusions - Holophonic Sounds
I really love my music – I carry it pretty much everywhere I go – I have a Archos 605 Media Player (It is one of the best around) Besides having an iPhone as well.

Recently I added the SRS Audio Sandbox on to my PC to add depth to all the sound and music I play on the computer – I will be writing a more detailed review in the future about this. But in the mean time – If you don’t have it and want your music to really pop – I fully recommend purchasing it for your PC.

This gets me to todays information – Virtual Sounds or Auditory Illusions – I recently came across this Page @ One Mans Blog – about getting a Virtual Haircut – This is amazing recording – They are recorded using what is called Holophonics - I recommend using headphones or the SRS Labs Audio Sandbox – Or even better the SRS Labs Audio Sandbox with Headphones with its headphone 360 mode  - All I can say is WOW – These are really cool and fun to listen to.  

This got me to thinking about some recording my dad used to have and play on the record player – They are the Phase 4 Stereo Recordings from London. I found out you can purchase some of  them at Amazonand I am currently listening to Mantovani by Mantovoni as I write this entry. Amazon list quite a few – and many are only available on LP – To listen and record these you will need a Record player – I recommend using the either of the following two units from Amazon – ( Audio Technica AT-LP2DUSB LP-to-Digital Recording System with USB ) or ( Ion TTUSB Turntable with USB Record ) I  use the Audio Technica one – I don’t own it but I get to borrow it from my brother. Plus don’t forget to check out your local library for some of these records – some are able to be loaned out for your listening pleasure.
