    Vivaldi Concertos with Organ

    Deutsche Grammophon 2530 652

    Trying to expand my horizons into the classical genre. So far, not so bad. May take a couple of listens to really get into it. My memories from music appreciation classes in high school and college are starting to resurface.

    Excellent choice!!! I love Vivaldi. Even his early stuff that kind of sounds all alike.

    Why thank you. I've gotten some good advice recently ;)

    I also listened to some of the MHS releases; I forget exactly which ones, but I wasn't very impressed with their quality. Grandad seemed to be a member as well, he also had a bunch from the Columbia, Phillips, and Nonesuch labels.

    In my book, classical is Beatles, Pink Floyd, Who, Vanilla Fudge, Clash, MC5, etc. etc. That's what they should be teaching kids in school. To quote Bruce, "I learned more from a 3 minute record than I ever learned in school."

    As with other labels MHS had some really great stuff and some real garbage and I mean garbage. Even the vinyl itself on the bad stuff was awful. As I said sometimes it's a crap shoot but when you come across that gem you really know it.

    Listening to Toad the Wet Sprocket "Dulcinea" Excellent guitar work. Seems to be a pretty good recording. I have actually been listening to several of their cd's and I have forgotten how good they were. I did see them live last fall and I will say they sound even better live.
    I like speakers that are bigger than a small refrigerator but smaller than a big refrigerator:D

    I have been looking for this since I heard it reviewed on The Record Shelf w/ Jim Svade (on NPR.) Amazon finally had it available from Rhinebeck Records.

    Gareth Farr--Symphonic Works

    Not the greatest recording technically. On tracks 1 & 2 (From the Depths Sound the Great Sea Gongs) the bulk of the orchestra sounds distant(?) while the precussion is really enjoyable. (And percussion is what Farr seems to do best.)

    I think 'Queen of Demons' is my favorite track.

    http://www.amazon.com/Gareth-Farr-Or...0788966&sr=1-1



    Cheers, Jim

    Jimmy Page & The Black Crowes - Live at the Greek



    A blistering live 2 cd set of mostly Zep tunes with a few blues standards thrown in. No Crowes songs because of contractual issues. This one of my favorite live rock cd's the sound is amazing and full.

    This is superb SDA recording. This show used 3 guitarists and in the past it was always difficult to discern each guitar and who was playing what because the guitars seems to come from the same location.

    The way the recording was made has Audley Freed in the left channel; Rich Robinson in the right channel; and Jimmy Page in the center (actually slightly off center to the right). On the SDA's both the L and R are way out off the sides and Jimmy is just right of Chris Robinson's vocals which are dead center.

    This sounds so full on the SDA's, my buddy even mentioned that it sounded like I had a surround system on while we were listening. All the instruments are so fleshed out and you can hear every little nuance of the recording. The organ, toms, cymbals were all in the mix in different spots R/L and F/B. It really sounded like I was right in the middle of the concert.

    If you like Zep get this cd. If you have SDA's and like Zep this is a must have. While this band could never replace Zep they do a damn fine job and Jimmy for the most part is on fire. I have a bootleg video of a show from this mini-tour and they take a no nonsense approach. It was easy to visualize the whole show while listening to this fantastic recording.

    Thanks for the info. I wonder if this offering has been put to vinyl. How old is this one?

    This was released in '00 and don't hold me to it but I believe you should be able to find this on LP with some searching. If not get the cd you won't be disappointed. Chris Robinson does the best job to date on the Zep vocals. I think he is even better than David Coverdale (I have a few boots of the Coverdale/Page tour in Japan way back when). Throughly enjoyable!!

    Switching medium and spinning Mayall's "Back to the Roots" double album @ 7 1/2 IPS with the new (to me) Akai 280D-SS R2R deck. Sound quality, dynamics, bass extension, and depth/width of the soundstage simply get no better than this. Larry Taylor does a bass run in the intro to "Home Again" that could never be reproduced as faithfully on LP or CD. Mayall's honky tonk blues piano style rolls of the manual and into time and space with an intimacy and urgency of its own. As close to first generation "being there" as I've heard.

    Grand Funk Railroad - Born to Die
    1976, Capitol ST-11482, LP

    Originally intended as their last album, they reunited shortly after its release to record with Frank Zappa on "Good Singin' Good Playin'". Side B is some of my favorite work by Farner with Craig Frost on keyboards and vocals a big plus.

    Robin Trower - Bridge of Sighs
    1974, Chrysalis CHR 1057, LP

    James Dewar was, IMHO, the best rock vocalist of the era and a bassist with few equals. This album is a showcase for his talents, Trower's guitar work is just extra icing. Sadly, he passed away in 2002 at the age of 60.
