Ordered the 3 @ 2-cd sets (produced by Keyhole) from Quicksilver, Boz Scaggs & It's A Beautiful Day from the legendary "Last Days of The Fillmore West" week in June/July 1971, on the strength of owning the original 3-LP vinyl box set, which contains relatively brief contributions from these 3 among many others.

Put all 6 CDs into a 6-disc changer & drifted back 42 years, Boz in great bluesy/country form, IABD with La Flamme's soaring violin....but wait a minute.....what's happened to Bill Graham's introduction to the Quicksilver set....isn't that a girl?....and when did QMS ever use a violin player?

Sadly, CD-1 of this Quicksilver set is actually the first CD… Read more
WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Drive wi&hellip by Western Digital
I bought 2 of these, different capacities, and was interested to compare them to an earlier My Passport 1tb drive (not Ultra) bought for my daughter to backup her laptop last year.

This is to hold all my mp3 albums from 3-4 sources as a temporary library until I get a new iMac set up with a shared library.

It's smaller in 2 dimensions than the My Passport (not Ultra)… Read more
Case Logic EVA Foam Case for 2.5 inch Portable Har&hellip by Case Logic
I bought this to hold a new WD 2.5" My Passport Ultra 1TB, and it fits perfectly, with room for the cable & thin bag in the net.

However, two "caveat emptor" points.....

1 - The new WD 2.5" My Passport Ultra 2TB is almost double the thickness of the 1TB model, and in my view is too tight a fit for this new range of Case Logic cases. You may find it worth buying the previous (& equally as good) Case Logic QHDC-101 (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Black-Case-Logic-QHDC-101-Drive/dp/B003WUBIZQ/ref=pd_sim_computers_13), which is very slightly thicker & longer.
2 - I doubt if this new case will hold the previous WD 2.5" My Passport external drives, as the… Read more
