I think that some people are just screwed. Lots of folks complaining that their only choices are expensive and multi show. Of course, there are plenty of times that I didn't live near where the tour was going and it pissed me off. But it MIGHT be that this is just round one and for round two (after the fans get their shot at it) they'll change the rules? Obviously I'm just guessing.
 

gah! i'm gonna swing by someone's digital parking spot and honk my horn

I got the NYC Nearly Human show, sprung for the Meet & Greet because what the hell you only live once and having Todd in my living room is appealing.

i'd like to purchase a show but not the no-cap

it  looks like all i can do is the non-cap tix

obviously i'm missing something

She’s been a staple on AXS for many years. I suspect she’s walking the thin line between talking about something interesting and trying to make sure that newbies aren’t lost by esoteric diversions. I posted that she should ask about Patronet, but didn’t happen.

I apologize for being dense....but I have a question about ripping...why do it? 

I understand the quality of vinyl discussion and am a believer.  LP's are great.

That said, I just went to look, and there are 49 albums of Todd's on Spotify (solo...there are another 18 for Utopia).  The majority are live and have the same songs...but 49!  If ripping is tough on equipment and brings with it the potential of under-whelming sound quality....why do it?

Beyond the storage, the amazingly low cost of music now (Spotify Premium for 4 accounts costs me $15/month) and the access to virtually anything across every platform and device makes me wonder what you're getting by ripping? 

What am I missing?
 
The answer is long and involved.  I will be most happy to share it.  Soon, it will take some time to put it together.  I'll provide it over in my quiet vinyl thread so as not to clog up this one.  It will be a long journal type of answer.  I'll copy this and paste it as the header when I put it up.

I collect sound, not records. You may be surprised to find that the tactile part of it has the least to do with it for me, which seems to be the primary reason for collecting vinyl these days, besides the sound.  

Cheers !

I'm looking at Tidal, and not completely impressed, but there are albums (not many of Todd's) that are Master Quality. Things like Gaucho. As we move more towards digital warehouses with high quality files, you can imagine that in a relatively short period we'll be able to access the stuff straight off the master tapes without compression. As much as I love the tactile experience of vinyl, will it become like microfiche, necessary then but not now?
