Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

A new server, a new environment. Updated and all.

As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

I wish I was there the same time as you because there were no cassettes mentioned or on display when I was there 13,14,15,16 July 1989. Lucky you :-)

I've never heard Experimental 2001, so I can't comment on it. However one has to understand the context of both albums. Both parties were very upset with each other, and both understood that there were a minimum of two albums needed to finish the then current deal. Sessions 2000 was the one that was...

Autobiography, if the picture is to be taken as read. Robert Laffont is probably the ghost writer.

That's not quite correct - because the copyright protection is in most countries granted automatically 50 or 70 years (after the author's death) from publication : https://en.Wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries%27_copyright_lengths . It also depends on the record deal. Some deals done allowed for ...

That's purely for copyright reasons. If it was 1983 the copyright could have lapsed by now. That's one of the reasons why music keeps being reissued.

Equinoxe 5 is weird. The stereo mix - probably mixed down from surround - has a ridiculously wide main lead.

MfS was basically a gesture against the CD marketing. Well nowadays there are other formats, so... :wink: MFS was a gesture against the recording industry in general - the way they were marketing music “like toothpaste, washing machines and fridges”. As CD’s we’re in their infancy then, IMO I’d say...

Oxygene 3 is a masterpiece in my opinion. JMJ pulled off the very difficult trick of a current album with Oxygene style themes without falling back on old glories. As JMJ said it's Oxygene as written today ... Oxygene 14, 15, 17 and 20 are as good as anything JMJ has ever written. Remarkable conside...

However, as I have expected (based off of what I've heard of Electronica), the JMJ involvement seems to be pretty minimal here. The videos posted on instagram that Kanta shared with us clearly show JMJ playing on a track for the album, so unless his contribution was removed or buried deep in the fi...

The more I listen to Oxygene 3 ... It's far too squished, it doesn't suit the material at all, which needs to be light and ethereal.
Which is why I ripped from the vinyl - here's a Oxygene 17 comparison
