    Tracy Chapman..."A new Beginning"

    Really well done CD.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies . I am glad to be a part of a select group that tries to take our auditory and visual senses to a higher level: we EXPERIENCE them.... GOT SDA?...GOT SUNFIRE? ...GOT Maggies?

    James Last - Moonlight Sonata
    A compilation I made of Moonlight Sonata. It is originally made by Beethoven, but this is a remake by James Last. :)
    All his stuff is great, if you are 70& over....

    .
    I've never heard Mr. Last's version but you don't have to be over 70 to enjoy "Moonlight Sonata." It is one of those masterpieces that never gets old regardless of the version.:) I have to look into some vinyl with Mr. Last's offerings.

    EDIT: I just googled him, he's apparently a great jazz artist . . . cool.

    It's tough stuff to get used to at first, Joe. It's a guy and a piano, and he's singing in German. But sometimes it expresses exactly how you feel when nothing else can. Give the Amazon 30 second blips a listen.

    The guy himself is amazing. He was born with severe thalidomide deformities, and obviously had alot to overcome. He's quite generous with charitable groups.

    Just picked up Celtic Women, Songs from the Heart. Popped it in and sounds great. Very relaxing and nice quality for a cd. Has some nice low bass on a few songs.

    I gotta tell you John, I have serveral recording both on vinyl & CD of Beethoven's ninth symphony and the choral section done in German on one of the recordings is my all time fav. It's how it was meant to be sung and it really does outshine the English versions.

    I just looked up "thalidomide deformities" my God what a horrible deformity. He must have had a heck of time overcoming it especially as a piano player. God Bless him!

    No, Joe, he sings along with a piano accompanist, that's traditionally how they do it. But an interesting thing about that is that he was refused admittance to a prestigious vocal music academy as a youth because they required students to have some level of piano mastery. A guy can't play piano with flippers.

    I remember the big thalidomide horror in Europe, and how at that time footdragging by the FDA mainly prevented it from being an American tragedy too.

    The last track of the 2nd cd set I mentioned, he breaks away from traditional lieder and does a free-form jazz bop thing that sounds like he and Bobby McFerrin could have a whale of a time.
