WHY BUY VINYL RECORDS?
Back in the good old days, before the advent of digital sound, your music, if it wasn't live or coming to you over the radio, came on vinyl. We're talking 45 RPM singles. 12" LP (that's Long Play) albums. And yes, that may have been a while ago, but it might just have been the best quality achieved by mankind in sound technology. No kidding. We really mean it, but only because it's true.
When you play live music, it's analog by definition. Nothing's pre-set. When you make an analog recording of that music onto vinyl, the original waveform of the sound is preserved. That's the beauty of analog.
CD's, on the other hand, are recorded by taking 'snapshots' of the music at a predetermined rate (for CD's it's 44,100 times per second). It is therefore physically impossible for a digital recording to capture the entire sound wave, and this results in distortion. When you play a CD, it's converted from digital to analog, because that's what the amplifier in your sound system needs to play it through your speakers, and this results in further sound quality loss.
This doesn't happen with vinyl records, of course, because they're analog to begin with, and record player output is analog as well. Nothing needs to be converted, so you hear the sound as it really is, without loss or distortion. Of course, this assumes your vinyl records are clean, without dust or scratches, which of course would sound like static. Proper care of records avoids these issues.

RAIN, SUN & MOON
This album contains Vermouth Rondo, Moro's best-known composition. Also featured is the title cut, both in instrumental and song form, along with twelve other offerings to tempt the ear, ease the day and smooth the rough edges of a ragged world.
"His is a gentle, deft yet mind-boggling touch, brilliant in its technical proficiency and almost transparent in its delivery"
-- John V. Hurst, Sacramento Bee
Included in this collection is Hosanna Blue, the most-aired guitar solo recording in the world for three years in a row. Keeping company with this are Arabias and Farruca, both with delicious Flamenco flavors, and one of the most haunting and tender examples of moromusic, Thespian's Ballade.

CONCERTO de ALCALA
The title cut, in three movements, is an emotional journey with great depth, warmth and beauty. Moro's Minuet in E is a glorious yet sedate romp; Pieces of Anda is a must-hear piece of ear candy, delicate but strong, and unforgettable once heard. The album is rounded out with ten more delectable moromusic morsels.
"Moro offers a warmth and beauty rarely found in performers... Playing his own compositions in a mix of flamenco, classical and baroque stylings, Moro displays an ear-boggling technical mastery of his guitar."
--Larry Kelp, OAKLAND TRIBUNE
