Oh dear .. it's just too good!

We just got our first delivery of AVA products and will soon have them out to our local HiFi shops for you to purchase .. if you are too far away from our shop.


Absolutely beautiful! 

I must admit that both Gustaf & I have a thing for engineered products and literally have a small collection of worthless, needless metal objects in our store that are just too ''shiny'' to throw away!

So for us ... How cool are AVA-Media products? Very cool!

Each piece is milled from a single solid aluminium nougat. Never mind the fantastic technology the box includes and the shielding such a box provides, automatic ripping, pre-installed media sofware and so on and so on ...

LOOK AT THAT BOX!!!

I literally did not believe this was done, completely ... not assembled but milled ... in the UK for this price and to this specification even though I have the products in my hand so I forced Martin from AVA to send me pictures of the days batch!  Just sent to me from His iphone ... 


Independent, family owned and run British Engineering business at it's best!

Few nice pics from Maeve's visit 10 days ago


Interview with Swedish radio .. The interview started and should have been a quick hello and one song. Maeve was so good that the interviewer immediately called in to HQ, cancelled 30 minutes of their scheduled broadcast and replaced it with several songs from Her new album with interview in between.






In the Vintage Music Studio, Gothenburg. Just ridiculous ... she is amazing! No rehearsal, just walked in, picked up the guitar and blew the roof off! Wal!!! I was sitting in the room with Selsius (Gothenburg Rock Band), all of us just burst out laughing when she's finished ... crazy good!

Big thanks to all attendees at ''LINN LOUNGE'' yesterday

For you that perhaps follow our blogg but don't live in the vicinity of our shop and so were unable attend last night ... I recommend you find LINN shop near you and attend such an event.

It's great we have access to all of the worlds music at our fingertips but do we appreciate it? Could it be a better experience if we get the background, understand the artist ... even get clues to what's behind the song?

LINN LOUNGE gave an insight into the world and influences of George Harrison, an insight into the man, which was then confirmed in tracks we played back in fabulous 24 Bit resolution. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed an album so much and I was concentrating on playing tracks & clips from Spotify, Youtube and of course 24 Bit from the recording.

With respect for other shops that have still not had their George Harrison event I'll withhold the accompanying text for now but you will soon be able to download this from this blogg & to read through it whilst listening to the album.

Well done LINN!!

You can download George Harrison in full 24 Bit HERE

LINN LOUNGE: George Harrison 7pm Tuesday 27th

Warm welcome to Peoples & Schmidt tomorrow evening, 7pm - Tuesday 27th for the first evening in LINN's new music presentations based on their 24 Bit album releases. We will provide beer, music and a welcoming environment so just bring a few friends and drop down.

All the music used on the night (The playlist) will be free to download after the event via a download voucher given out on the night.

The first event will look at George Harrisons influences and of course his own music from this album, available now on LINNrecords. 


EARLY TAKES Volume 1 is a pivotal companion piece to Martin Scorsese's stunning critically acclaimed documentary on the life of George Harrison, "Living in the Material World".
This album is licenced for download from Universal Music Group.
Download includes - cover art



'This Collection of the artist's demos provides an appealing portrait of the ex-Beatle as a working singer-songwriter.' 4 stars The Financial Times
'Terrific.' 4 stars The Sunday Express
'The voice is gentle and lovely and the songs beauties.' 4 starsDaily Express
'There's a simplicity about these previously unreleased demos that's beguiling, allowing the sweeter side of Harrison to shine unencumbered by studio blandishments.' 4 starsThe Independent
'A fascinating insight into Harrison's creative process...a more intimate but still compelling listen.' Music Week
'Early Takes unwraps a treasure trove of George Harrison music.' The Chicago Tribune
The album features a wealth of previously unreleased recordings from Harrison, including early takes of "I'd Have You Anytime" and "Awaiting On You All," plus unheard demo versions of "Behind That Locked Door," "All Things Must Pass," "Run of the Mill" and "My Sweet Lord," all later featured on Harrison's 1970 chart-topping album 'All Things Must Pass'. Other unreleased tracks include demos of "The Light That Has Lighted the World," "Let It Be Me," Bob Dylan's "Mama You've Been on My Mind," and an early take of "Woman Don't You Cry For Me."
'In 2009 I was privileged to be invited by Olivia to listen to tapes that George had stored in his library at Friar Park. In the beautiful setting of George's studio, overlooking the meticulous gardens that he had created, engineer Paul Hicks and I unboxed forgotten reels to hear the music George had left behind. This first collection provides a glimpse of what we found. From early multi-tracks of live takes of My Sweet Lord and All Things Must Pass to more recent tracks like Mama You've Been On My Mind, we hear an intimacy to George's voice and guitar that can only be achieved with live performance devoid of production. I'd like to thank Olivia and Dhani for the honour of being invited into their home to share the work that George gave us all.' Giles Martin

Digital to analogue without a DAC

NO CLOCK ... NO JITTER!!

How good would that be? Well it's amazingly good ... Extraordinary good ... Outrageously GOOD!

NO DAC! Then the sound couldn't be programmed ..  It would be completely uncoloured!!

THAT'S RIGHT!!!

Maeve O'Boyle *Live* 17th Nov, near Borås

Email martin@peoplesandschmidt.com for details or call 076 007 12 81

We think we can still squeeze in a few more into next Saturday's Live concert with Maeve O'Boyle whom will be playing tracks from Her new Album, Being Patient. The new album will be available to purchase on the night in MP3, 16 & 24 Bit formats.

Support is now announced:

American fashion Model, Owen McGillicuddy is also a pretty serious singer-songwriter. I've known Owen for some time, not as a musician and was taken aback when He asked if I wanted to attend one of His gigs in a prestigious scene here in Gothenburg.


Check Him out for yourself ... we must and probably will sort out better a recording for Him that represents how good he is Live ... but have a listen & you'll get it!

Listen here ...
