The line in the story that got to me was this:
In an age where most music is recorded directly to computers and is then edited, spliced and mashed to a shiny gloss with no errant notes to be found, the mistakes and idiosyncracies that used to appear on records have all but disappeared. Call it heart, or soul, or personality, but there is a small population of musicians who are trying to bring it back to the record making process.
Yep. I couldn't agree more. Read the entire story about Jace Lasek in the Toronto Star.
