Donald Fagen, the nightfly: live.
Alabama 3 - Step 13. First spin and love it! Pressing a little noisier than expected, but perfectly flat and centred.
Roll the sound effects…
Pinned to the back of the sofa loud. The drum ‘thwack’ on ‘The Thin Ice’ just caused my R-Com to light up!
I’ve gone back to my Harvest pressing. Greater range and no over-pumped bass!
There’s no other way with Pink Floyd. I think I’ve been very close to killing my speakers once with Three Wishes from Amused to Death.
Cannonball Adderley With Milt Jackson Things Are Getting Better / 2006 Riverside / EU CD / 0025218603225
Second spin of this great recording.
Classic Records 200g vinyl from 1997.
I’ve decided that today’s music will come from my post on this thread:
Following a number of people trying this and enjoying a second play through
Tuner - Live at the Lafayette
Led Zeppelin IV on an 80s reissue. Much written online about the best versions to own with regard to sound quality, but these orange and green Germany pressed versions are a pretty good compromise, and I’m quite pleasantly surprised by this copy.
Now onto the best of the 1960s (part one). My favourite album ever, here in the Fab 2014 mono vinyl version.
Kate Bush - Hounds Of Love. A perfect album. But, I now remember why I sold my vinyl copy when CDs first came out, as side two has so many quiet passages, and this copy as per my original has quite a bit of surface noise even after cleaning. Are the new remasters better in this regard?
Doesn’t feel right listening to Steely Dan without WB somehow. Still, it’s a nice set.
I saw Keith Karlock (drums) live with his own band about 20 years ago. Great player.
milt jackson & john coltrane bags & trane / 2012 Atlantic / EU version of Japan CD / 8122797289
Milt Jackson Vibraphone
John Coltrane Tenor Saxophone
Hank Jones Piano
Paul Chambers Bass
Connie Kay Drums
It wouldnt be Sunday without a bit of Uncle Ram Jam selecting…
The 2018 remaster of HoL Is indeed remarkable.
Honestly I wasn’t expecting that much but I am positevely impressed.
I bought the CD at the first time of its publication and it was not so great.
However, the 2018 issue renders justice to such a masterpiece. Always IMHO
I’m still waiting for Vol. 2!
