You Roll Right On
– by David Elias

Coastal waves of inspiration all you have is meditation
Trees of fire burn the choir singing for their salvation
Hints of glamour girls enamored with their own afflictions
Situations complications never mind the contradictions

You roll right on
You roll right on
You roll right on
As you roll right by
You roll right on

Memories of disenchantment paying back the conversation
All you owe is paid in full the rest is just hallucination
Early water Sunday’s daughter ran away no hesitation
Where she goes nobody knows, hell to pay in moderation

You roll right on
You roll right on
You roll right on
As you roll right by
You roll right on

Acupuncture found the juncture in between the constellations
Heaven knows those bodies glow when forced away from contemplation
Witness this with mortal bliss the Gods can’t touch our incarnation
And after all is said and done
You wind up back where you begun
Everlasting peace will mark the end of our emancipation

You roll right on
You roll right on
You roll right on
As you roll right by you roll
As you roll right by you roll
As you roll right by you roll
Right on

What MQA Can Do For A CD

I resisted CD when it was new and media-ized as the best and cleanest sounding thing. It sounded like it was in a straight jacket to me. I didn’t think that was clean. I thought it was chopped up and edgy. I liked vinyl and cassette. A lot. I never replaced my LP collection which was in the thousands with CDs. I bought CDs here and there to listen to stuff in the car but all the good stuff stayed in crates in various places.

Fast-Slow Forward 30 years (I kid you not) and I get to hear MQA with 16/44.1 CD Masters. Holy Shit. Finally something that sounds good in good old 16/44.1 Redbook. There are no hi-res masters for these (and millions of others), there are only CD masters. They sounded ok and forgivable when they were made but MQA let out the angels that were being kept inside.

I could go on and on with technical garbledy gook about filters and time smearing and, no, not rearing children, but other stuff but I won’t. I’ll stop with the angels thing. It’s a new moon, all is well.

Listen to a free MQA CD Master song download I have. Get it in the original FLAC format (use the dropdown option where it might say MP3 and change to FLAC) or any other lossless format Bandcamp offers (ALAC, AIF, WAV).

Rare-To-Go-Animation9

This song was recorded as an acoustic trio, with me on guitar, Scott Beynon on electric bass and Ken Owen on drums. My New Orleans bouzouki hellacious singer friend Beth dubbed that kind of ensemble Heavy Wood. Yes it was and was my best shot at my Tonight’s The Night sound. Recorded to DSD originally but only mastered for CD on the “Rare To Go” disc and then encoded as MQA.

You can play it on any digital audio player you have including your phone or tablet or computer. If you have an MQA DAC, or BlueOS or other player in your setup it will decode and sound even better but I’m hoping you listen to it either way.

Aloha to all.

PS – the photo I took on the CD cover is of the 2 largest mountains on the planet, Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea. One is the largest mountain mass of any single mountain (more cubic meters, bigger than the entire Cascade or Sierra Nevada ranges), the other is the tallest rising from the ocean floor where it begins, far beyond Everest and the rest.
