I keep my ad blocker on, a...

Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

I do like a bit of Larry Carlton. In part it has to do with his involvement with Steely Dan. He got the Steely Dan gig because of his work with Joan Baez - apparently Walter Becker (of The Dan) was NOT a fan of Joan Baez, but he disliked her album "Diamonds & Rust" a lot less her other work, and he ...

Re: Opticians.

I'd echo what Nick has posted. Every sight test at Specsavers incorporates retinal photography and intraocular pressure testing. Ocular fields testing is also performed. They're pretty comprehensive.

OK, I know I'm talking hi-fi here rather than music .....
Where does one start, and the other take over?
They're one and the same, surely?
