Global Caravan Image  Living only a short drive from the Boston airport, i am finding it hard to figure out where to begin this month's editorial. Please be patient with me. The recent terrorist attacks has greatly altered the way many of us now view the world... and this is good, which i will explain later. As an American citizen who is a regular world traveler, maybe i am more aware of world events... even before September 11th, 2001. While we Americans have to suffer through the limited news reports on world events from ABC, CBS, and NBC news, having a satellite dish and "working the web" has always kept me abreast of the "real" world through the International News network and of course the BBC.

On of the major advantages of being a Web based magazine is that we can provide not only world events by worldwide reporters/writers, we also deliver this information to a truly worldwide audience. In fact in this issue we have a British writer (Alvin Gold) reviewing Italian loudspeakers (Sonus Faber Grand Piano), an American writer (Herb Reichert) reviewing a British subwoofer (Spendor Sub 3), a Greek writer (Vangelis Lazarou) reviewing a Japanese cartridge (Dynavector Karat 17D2 MK. II)... These are just a few examples my friends.

During my personal travels i have seen many things. From 3rd world financially deprived living to grandiose wealth... and all in-between. As may of our loyal readers know, Enjoy the Music.com™ has reported on forty shows worldwide in the past few years. This is by far more than any other audiophile publication.

There are many products in Italy that have no formal American distribution. The same can be said about some American products having no formal Italian distribution. The amazing thing about the Internet is that many music lovers have found ways to personally buy and enjoy products where there is no distributor within their country.

We are now at a time when the world is banding together and supporting each other. We can now (hopefully) leave the petty arguments of Web magazines versus print magazines to rest. For any wise writer knows that their worldwide readership is wise enough to see the qualifications of an individual writer. There are enough dictators in this world. So please let us all remember to be good to each other. Many of us are after the same goals in life. One of those goals is to Enjoy the Music.


Musically Yours...

i would like to take this moment to officially welcome a good friend who is also a fellow music lover, recording engineer, guitarist, cigar smoker, photojournalist... and all around good guy. We are now fortunate to have none other than Steven Stone within our ranks of writers! Steven's writings have appeared in many magazines including Stereophile, The Absolute Sound, Vintage Guitar Magazine, Spin and Creem. His photographic talents have been featured in many places (Library of Congress and the Biblioteque National of France, to name two) while he and J. Gordon Holt have been working together for the past nine years recording the Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra. Welcome aboard Steven! Please feel free to see his very first music reviews within our Review Magazine by clicking here.

We do have plans for announcing yet another well-respected writer next month. Yes indeed, something is afoot here at Enjoy the Music.com™. Of course in the end what really matters is that you...


Enjoy the Music ("The World I Know" by Collective Soul right now),

Steven R. Rochlin


"Has our conscience shown?
Has the sweet breeze blown?
Has all kindness gone?
Hope still lingers on

I drink myself of newfound pity
Sitting alone in New York City 
And I don't know why, I don't know why

So I walk upon high
And I step to the edge
To see my world below
And I laugh at myself
While the tears roll down
'Cause it's the world I know 
It's the world I know

Are we listening? 
To hymns of offering?
Have we eyes to see?
Love that's gathering?

All the words that I've been reading
Have now started the act of bleeding 
Into one, into one

So I walk upon high
And I step to the edge
To see my world below
And I laugh at myself
While the tears roll down
'Cause it's the world I know 
It's the world I know"
