LOL - You don't know the meaning of clutter...

I readily admit you can see the carpet in my listening room. Which cannot always be said about Mikey Fremer's listening room! :-)

Are those the small issues of Stereophile on the shelf below your LPs? I loved that size!

What Jaco P. recording would you recommend? I have one LP and didn't much care for it, but I know how highly regarded his work was, so maybe I don't have the right one.

Yes indeed, If you look closely, you'll also see a complete set of TAS.

Purists will hate me for saying this but I think his very best work was on 2 Joni Mitchell albums: Don Juan's Restless Daughter and Shadows & Light. The solo album is virtuosic but is bit heavy sledding at times.

I was a little put off by the solo stuff, but I'm very happy to hear about the JM stuff. I need to pick those up anyway, but now I have another excuse! Many thanks!

I feel better now about my clutter and I can tell my wife, "look at JA's clutter!" Hehe

a 10 except for the chair. Check out www.dabrevi.com and check out the 931 and 933 models as in my gallery.

My listening chair has some history, Jim. It was my late stepfather's favorite chair. After he died, my mother shipped it out from England for me to use. The Aeron chair next to it usually faces my desk at the left-rear of my room, where I spin the words you read.

I fully understand your use of the chair. I used to sell the Dabrevi chairs to 911 centers where people sit 24/7. We used to call the Herman Miller chair the "Buck Rogers" Chair. The Aeron chair and ours was the same price. Once they sat is ours they understood our design. Regards.

I envy your collection, a lifetime treasure

I challenge you to a CLUTTER OFF. If you don't have to walk sideways to get to the chair, you STILL have too much room.

Well, if you decide to put away some of your collection which you think are clutters, you can dump it in my house, ha ha
