Dear Aimoo members,

Thank you so much for all your support for Aimoo over the years.

The PM is opened now.

The transfer to new aimoo will take less time than estimated before by testing recently. So we decide to close the old Aimoo until we are prepared in everything, you can use old aimoo before it.

The help forum has been transferred to new aimoo, it is below:

The transfer will be executed one by one and we will close the PM funciton, the registeration function and the creating forum function in old aimoo.  

The forum data will be transferred is below:

1. the control panel settings including categories, icons, permission and so on.
2. the forum skin 
3. all topics and replies
4. all valid members
5. owner`s profile and PM ( it will be lost probably but not many)
6. forum balance

Except of above, all forum transferred will get free a month diamond.

The transfer will take many days and we plan to complete it in 27th and we will publish the other funtions step by step, they are friends, Album, Youtube video upload and so on, except that, we will publish a new chatroom in future.

If you have any questions, you can email us by

Hello Chip and Johnny,

Yes indeed, there are some real dimwits out there posting ridiculous comments and baseless reviews on amazon periodically and usually they are outweighed heavily by the rest of us music lovers with common sense and a decent ear.

I remember well that absolutely idiotic review of the George Melachrino album and particularly that very unfair and almost personal attack on the incredibly beautiful remastering job Maria Triana did on that splendid release.  I followed your lead as well Chip and posted my own five star review defending the great remastering job by the brilliant Ms Triana.

Maria Triana has got to be one of the best remastering engineers and has even worked on Elvis Presley's catalogue for RCA on some of his box sets with the legendary engineer Vic Anesini who is beloved by Elvis audiophiles all over the world.  As you well know Chip, one does not get close to the Elvis masters unless they have impeccable credentials and an amazing track record.  The Elvis recording catalogue is probably the most valuable and revered in the business besides the Beatles' master recordings.

The Jack Jones Christmas album remastered by the very respected Mike Milchner is extraordinary as well.  I find the remastering efforts by Real Gone Music to be superior to any other labels in the business, especially with regard to these great Christmas gems from the late fifties and early sixties.  When I see a Christmas re-release is coming from a label other than Real Gone Music, I am almost always slightly disappointed as I know they are unlikely to take the same care in remastering and producing the original art work and have such amazing liner notes.

Please help Real Gone Music keep up the great effort in rereleasing these masterpieces from a bygone era and know that your Yule Log members will have your and Real Gones's back when it comes to these efforts.

Best Regards,

I listened to my copy of the Jack Jones Christmas album again, and while it's not a needle drop that someone thinks it is on Amazon, it's sounds to me that it's been remastered from a less than pristine source tape. I'm thinking the original master was probably destroyed in the disastrous Universal Music Group vault fire in 2008, and Real Gone had to use a secondary source.

What particularly irked me about that odious reviewer's completely unfounded attack on Maria is that she is as kind a person as the beautiful job she does as a remastering engineer. I just can't brook people who callously and recklessly impugn the professional and personal integrity of a person without any regard whatsoever.

Thanks for manifesting your support for Real Gone Music by posting your stellar reviews on Amazon.


No, thankfully the original master session tapes for Jack's 1964 Christmas LP were not destroyed in the 2008 fire.
