North Mississippi Allstars

Saw the NMA last night at a small club in Little Rock. It was much better than I expected. I'd seen them many year ago but they were much improved this time. If they come to your town drop what your doing and just go.

Coffee And Records

I drink more coffee while listening to tunes than anything else. Until recently we didn't have a great local roaster. I've been buying beans at the place that shall not be named or ordering online form La Colmbe. Now I can pick up Arkansas Onyx coffee at the local market...
 They send a good message as well.
 Sound advice. Not only are they great roasters but they have a love of vinyl.

ItIsHiFi Is On Vacation So It Is On Autopilot

I'm taking a much needed vacation in the outer island Bahamas. The site is on auto pilot with post scheduled until December 1st. If you don't see anything after that I've been eaten by a shark or worse.
The only HiFi I'll have is the sound of waves break'n.. Perfect.
