Re: Louie BTTS

"first hand knowledge that that is Louie on PPTRCO..." Even though first hand Petra member John Lawry told Brent it was sequenced. Chris Mchugh was at WUC sessions for "moral support"??? sounds like an "intervention"....Bob H. "Louie, we need you to come down to the studio..." Louie shows up, the w...

Re: Louie BTTS

Was "I Will Call Upon The Lord" from Petra Praise an actual live track, or was that studio magic as well? The drums do not sound organic to me, but the crowd noise seems real, especially the singing. If so, did Louie play on that song? That's an interesting question, but since they recreated that t...

Re: Louie BTTS

Since I asked, executioner contacted me via private message and gave me some details about his source. I have no reason to doubt him, and his source is solid, having worked closely with the band since the early-80s. When he says that only Bob knows more about the band than his source, he's not exagg...

Re: Louie BTTS

I have first hand knowledge of the recording sessions with the band (just talked to someone that was there throughout the recording)... Technically, that's secondhand knowledge. First-hand knowledge would mean you were in the recording studio yourself. That said, "Wake Up Call" and White Heart's "F...

Re: Louie BTTS

Really? So it's not Louie on Wake Up Call? Or is it a mix of Louie and McHugh?

Re: CPR

I think the proverbial boat was missed with CPR's album cover choice. I believe I know what Greg (or whomever) was going for, but sometimes your mind's eye and the finished product turn out to be two completely different things. It's not so much the execution of the plan for the cover, but the plan...

Re: Acoustic Classical Hartman - new CD

Merry Christmas, everyone! So now I've finally had a chance to give this a listen, and it is excellent, a perfect fusion of classical and electric guitar, and it supports my opinion that Bob Hartman is one of the most underrated guitarists and musicians in the industry. The fact that he's able to ke...

Re: The Union Of Sinners And Saints - Autographed Limited Edition 12" Vinyl LP

CD is still a viable format. There's no need to reinvent the wheel with a new physical format like SD cards or whatever. The cost of implementing that would be significant since entirely new manufacturing facilities would have to be created. Vinyl is having a resurgence for reasons I can't explain, ...

Of course I assume you meant "whining", and to that I'll simply say that someone can express a difference of opinion without whining.

Re: The Union Of Sinners And Saints - Autographed Limited Edition 12" Vinyl LP

Only 320kbps? Many people consider 320kbps to be overkill for MP3. In comparison to wav or flac, 320 kbps mp3 is only. In theory, yes. Based on what the average person is able to perceive, not so much, assuming all other things are equal. That said, I did hear a noticeable improvement in my Petra c...

Re: The Union Of Sinners And Saints - Autographed Limited Edition 12" Vinyl LP

...because the CD or download (even at only 320kbps mp3) will give a much better sound experience. Only 320kbps? Many people consider 320kbps to be overkill for MP3. The sweet spot for MP3 is a VBR encode in the 175 to 245kbps range with studies showing this to be "transparent" to the majority of l...

Re: CPR

We gripe about "not getting anything from Petra" anymore...and then when a classic lineup re-unites, we criticize the choice of songs or sound or production... I would prefer new material over "re-imagined" versions of older songs. One or two cuts is fine, but not a whole album, especially not when...

Re: Louie BTTS

I always find it humorous when fans say that Louie is the greatest drummer alive. There are fans who say that? I see nostalgic fans all the time on Facebook who laud Louie's playing ability. To be fair, his abilities are certainly laudable. Listen to the opening beat of "Let Everything That Hath Br...
