Yea, I had the same initial reaction. Too much Pop. But, that something about that first track - Only when I Sleep - (and of course the setting...) quite grabbed me.

If you can listen to So Young and not hum harmony, you are stronger than I. Quite an interesting hook.

What blew me away, was their interpretation of Little Wing. Great cover. My copy might be different than the US version.

*****

On the Mac, I am a real non-fan of Nicks. Awful, IMO. Conversely, I find McVie to have one of the most hauntingly interesting voices around. She ain't bad on the B3, either. Her ex on Bass is classic, and Fleetwood's Kit has always been remarkable. I've seen that live DVD on the tele and it is quite good - only too much focus on the gypsy lead singer for me. Give me more Christine McVie anyday... http://www.christinemcvie.com/

I think it has to do with how she bleats through songs... DJ's use the reference on the radio occassionally. I can handle her in moderation.

I can offer some input here since I have built up quite a concert DVD collection.

SRV - Get "Live at the ElMocambo". It's a much better DVD than the collection of Austin City Limits episodes on that other one. I have both.

Santana "Supernatural" - my first concert DVD and still one of my faves. Has DTS sound and the mix is spectacular. Great video and very high quality.

Steely Dan "Two Against Nature" - another super-sounding DTS DVD. Hate the cut though, as they mix interviews after each song instead of making it an extra to view later. Keep the remote handy and you'll be fine (click next track after every song to skip the interviews).

Clapton "One More Car...One More Rider" - filmed on the 2001 tour this is my new favorite. The DTS sound is amazing and his band - fuggaboutit. Steve Gadd, Billy Preston, David Sanicious, etc. Even if you don't like Clapton you'll find something to like here. Almost half the tunes are blues standards.

Eagles "Hell Freezes Over" - this was one of the first concert DVD's out and it's still a reference by which others are judged.
DTS sound is suberb.

Peter Gabriel "Secret World Live" - A great show and another great DTS soundtrack, but to be honest he overdubbed a lot of the show so it's not a true representation of what it really sounded like. This is the wive's fave...

Elton John "Greatist Hits Live" - I was perpared to be underwhelmed by this show but really ended up loving it. He has lots of special guests and the DTS sound - really, really, really good. This is my "Bass Test DVD". Play Rocket Man really loud and get ready for the notes near the end of the song. I'd like someone to tell me just how low they are - it sounds like it might be less than 20hz.

Pink Floyd "Pulse" - OK this one is really a bootleg (but a damn good one) you can get off ebay. Since the PF guys won't GET OFF THEIR ASS and release Pulse or Delicate Sound of Thunder on DVD, this is the best we have for now. It's only Dolby Digital and yes the video is a little iffy in places, but it's a KILLER show and the one my friend's request most often. If you're a floyd fan, you need this DVD.

Talking Heads - "Stop Making Sense" - they did a great job making this DVD. It's the only DVD I know of that has two different 5.1 mixes - one"soundboard" and one "audience".
Watch it both ways and you get a totally different experience.

That's probably enough to fill your shopping carts for now. Message me if you want more recommendations...

A superb dvd is Gov't Mule's "The Deepest End". What a concert that was...I was there! In case you don't know who Warren Haynes is, he's currently one of two lead guitarists plus a songwriter/singer of the Dead AND the Allman Brothers. Nice resume`! Also, that new Allman dvd is smokin'. Derek Trucks is probably the greatest slide guitarist ever imo. Also, I 2nd the El Mocambo suggestion, though I only own the video.

As for what's playing right now...Martin Sexton's 'Live Wide Open' (just a cd, no dvd).

boputnam

If you like that, you simply must get "Deepest End". A wonderful concert, production and recording wherer Government Mule memorilizes their original bassist, Allen Woody.

From the mule.net website:

By now, the word has spread about Gov't Mule. The group's incessant nature along with its visceral blues and jazz-based attack has garnered one of rock's most loyal followings. Comprised of original members Warren Haynes (guitar, vocals) and Matt Abts (drums) along with keyboardist Danny Louis (joined the April 2002) and bassist Andy Hess (joined the band September 2003), the group continues to blow minds, while breaking new musical ground.

This past May, Gov't Mule staged a truly historic event in New Orleans. On May 3rd, some of the planet's most legendary musicians assembled at the Saenger Theater for The Deepest End concert, which served as a tribute to original bassist Allen Woody, who passed away in August of 2000. The show featured countless special guests, many of whom appear on the band's two recent albums The Deep End Volume 1 & Volume 2. Over the course of the six-hour marathon concert, collaborators included everyone from Jason Newsted (Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne) to Jack Casady (Jefferson Airplane) to Victor Wooten (Bela Fleck & The Flecktones) to Les Claypool (Primus, Frog Brigade).

"It was one of the most amazing nights of music that I've ever been a part of or witnessed," says Haynes. "Technically, I think it came off about as good as it possibly could. We were all flying by the seat of our pants. We were coordinating all these different musicians who had all these places to be and other schedules and shows. I can¹t imagine it running much smoother. I kind of felt like the whole night there was this big wave of energy and I was just being dragged along by it."

"There's no pretending in Gov't Mule," says Newsted. "The music that Warren Haynes and Matt Abts and Allen Woody made together is a certain form of blueprint for a style of music that really is an original and unique formula. When you have that type of chemistry and one of the people is taken away, that's never gonna go away and it takes 25 of the greatest bass players to fill his shoes, but they're still not filled. It just speaks huge amounts for the respect that these guys have for him. He's looking down right now and going, "Holy crap!" He probably never would have imagined that he would have gotten so much respect."

Jaws dropped around the globe as the set list circulated on the internet, but there is hope for those who missed the star-studded six-hour gala. The magic was documented on one DVD and two CD's, which has been packaged together as The Deepest End, and released, Tuesday, October 7, on ATO Records.

"On a night like this, it's fun because there's no real time to rehearse so it gives you an extra adrenaline boost," said Victor Wooten. "When you have to improvise like that, most of the time you end up playing some of your best things because you don't get to work on it."

The band's most recent albums, The Deep End Volume 1 and Volume 2, honor Woody in a unique way. Instead of making a traditional tribute record, Haynes and Abts invited many of Woody¹s heroes to appear on the records and play almost entirely new material. The response was overwhelming. Volume 1 features guests such as Gregg Allman (Allman Brothers Band), Jack Bruce (Cream), Bootsy Collins (P-Funk), John Entwistle (The Who), Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Stefan Lessard (Dave Matthews Band) to name a few.

Because nearly everyone on Gov't Mule's "wish list" was interested in participating in the project, it became clear that all of this talent would not fit on one disc. Thus Volume 2 was released and features an equally impressive roster of players: Chris Squire (Yes), Tony Levin (King Crimson, Peter Gabriel), Rocco Prestia (Tower of Power), John Scofield, David Grisman and Billy Cox (Jimi Hendrix and the Band of Gypsys). All of the recording sessions were filmed by Phish bassist Mike Gordon for inclusion in his documentary, Rising Low. The movie serves as both a tribute to Woody and a behind-the-scenes look at the powerful recording sessions.

Meanwhile, Mule continued its relentless touring schedule, welcoming a range of guest bassists on the road. Oteil Burbridge (Allman Brothers Band), Dave Schools (Widespread Panic), George Porter Jr. (The Meters) , Greg Rzab (Jimmy Page, Buddy Guy), as well as Jason Newsted and the talented Andy Hess (The Black Crowes, Joan Osborne, John Scofield), all played several dates with the band over the last two years. The fan base grew exponentially during this period, as diehards traded live recordings of the group and discussed musical minutia on the "E-MULE" listserve. There was so much support for the band that its anthem "Soulshine" was voted Song of the Year at the 2002 Jammys.

Gov¹t Mule's funk number, "Sco-Mule," which features guitarist John Scofield, was nominated for a Grammy Award in early 2003. Haynes of course is no stranger to the Grammy's, he has accepted an award with the Allman Brothers Band in 1995 for the live version of "Jessica" (the band was also nominated for three other Grammy's). Since rejoining the ABB in 2001, Warren has reinvigorated the group yet again. Along with Gregg Allman, Haynes wrote the material for the heralded new album, Hittin' the Note, which band members and critics alike are calling the best release since 1972's epic Eat A Peach. Haynes co-produced the album with Michael Barbiero (Guns & Roses, Blues Traveler).

The Mule formed in 1994 when Haynes and bassist Allen Woody were touring as members of the Allman Brothers Band and wanted another creative outlet. After joining forces with Abts, the trio immediately noticed an intense chemistry and began touring relentlessly. Haynes estimates that the band played upwards of seven hundred shows in just a few years. "We just bonded completely," recalls Warren. "Musically and personally we became an entity. Gov't Mule did so many shows in such a short period of time, at least six or seven hundred. We shared hotel rooms, tour buses, our whole world, our whole life."

Gov't Mule will announce a new permanent bassist in September and will move into a new phase of its illustrious career. The Deepest End concert in New Orleans signified the end of the rotating bass status for the band and closure for the Deep End project that celebrated Woody's life. But no one had any idea it would be as historic and legendary as it turned out.

"We were just on a mission at the Saenger," said Matt Abts. We got a killer performance. We opened the show with "Bad Little Doggie" and it just kicked ass. I think some of the songs are definitive versions. I thought "Lay of the Sunflower" beat the record, totally. The "Voodoo Chile" with Jack Casady and Ivan Neville was killer."

"Matt had his work cut out for him," adds Warren. "There were fourteen bass players and each new bass player that steps on stage, the drummer has to readapt to a new chemistry, a new pocket that's being created between the bass player and the drummer. You're talking about someone who is one of my all time favorite drummers, so my expectation level of Matt is really high anyway. For him to go above and beyond that was amazing. I don¹t know where he gets the energy and the focus to do that."

One source of inspiration is likely Haynes, who is a rare breed. Very few musicians in history have been so well-rounded that they are guitar virtuosos, powerful vocalists and gifted songwriters. Similar to predecessors such as Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix, Warren is at the forefront of today's musical trailblazers.

"People turn out for Warren because everyone has absolute confidence that if he is involved, the music is going to be great," says Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio, who has performed alongside Warren on many occasions. "He is the only player of our generation who has his history completely together; and it is clear the minute you play with him. He is just the sickest guitarist and the most together guy you can share a stage with."

This fall, the group embark on its Rebirth of The Mule Tour, which will welcome special guests Chris Robinson and New Earth Mud for a national tour to support The Deepest End. Plans are already underway for a three-night New Year's run at The Beacon Theater in New York City, December 29-31.

IMHO, Gov't Mule during the years when Allen Woody was alive was the greatest rock band since Led Zeppelin...actually better than LZ.:D With the new lineup, they still outclass most other acts, but the magic in that original trio was something otherworldly. It took two people to just TRY to replace Allen.

Allman Brothers Live at the Beacon Theatre (2003) is the name of the dvd I couldn't think of before. They are sans Dickey, but they sound as good now as they did in the early years. Also, their new album Hittin' the Note, like Gregg himself said, is indeed the best album they've put out since Eat a Peach. Of course, IMHO. ;)

For about 13.00 dollars at best buy you can not go wrong with a copy of Roger Waters "in the flesh-live" Fantastic sound and the video looks like you are there,plus this concert is over 2 hours and he covers all the pink floyd hits as well as his top solo work.

Ah, Bo, words I have spoken so many times before that really pissed off many of my friends. I can really appreciate Nicks' song writing (if she gets off the whirly witch thing) but I can not take that nasally-groan singing style. But she had the looks, right?

I have seen F/M once live (way back now about 1978). One fabulously tight band. Fleetwood and McVie have to be one of the best, if not the best, rythmn sections around. Buckingham draws your attention with his intensity, both in is songs and performance. Christine brings balance to this intensity. Eh! Then there is Nicks swirling around acting alluring and mystical, who knows what for.

Saw this show on PBS and it is a fine performance.

My friends and I have the same kind of arguments over PF. I have seen them on both the Delicate Sound and Division Bell tours, and have this to say - G'bye Roger, I don't miss you. He's a head case that thought he was "the band" and is mostly resonsible for the contractual cock-up that has kept most of their DVD material from making it into print. I don't miss his dark and twisted material (the best songs on The Wall were Gilmour tunes) and he was *easily* replaced (and surpassed) as a bass-player and singer.

That said I don't doubt his solo DVD is probably pretty good. I just don't (and won't) support him after the mess he made of what is perhaps the best band you will ever see live.

To bring this back into something JBL related, I believe PF's last several touring rigs have featured JBL sound. You haven't lived until you've heard Gilmour work his magic through a sound system this good. It's absolutely unreal to hear the tone he gets in a stadium.

Damn I hope they tour one more time !!!! I need to kick everyone out of the house and crank up the Delicate Sound Laser Disc again.....

Well funny thing is if Roger Waters was not the flux that kept the tunes flowing why did pink floyd hire a bunch of writers to whip up all those tunes for the division bell cd. And why did it sound like a remix of the wall.??? I also believe that the main idea for the wall was water,s idea althought in any band there is going to be some input from the other members. If you do not want to purchase the dvd you should try to borrow a copy. The band line up is made up of members of claptons band as well as others that make it a joy to watch. And by the way i am a big fan of David Gilmour and his guitar tone is to die for.

Just wondering if anyone saw these guys play. It was a Pink Floyd cover band in the late 90's and early 00's. Members included Allen Woody (from Allman Bros. and Gov't Mule), Matt Abts (Mule), Marc Ford (Black Crowes), Johnny Neel (Allman Bros.) and Barry Oakley. They never came out with an album, but you can download plenty of their live shows off the net. Very interesting takes on Floyd material. The show I saw was one of my favorites of all time. I also saw PF once in the early 90's, and they were quite good themselves.:D

I can't remember what the components were, but is sure was impressive! I may even have that album in storage somewhere - I'm taking a week off coming up to go through all that stuff, and if I come across it I'll post a pic.

OK, I'm home alone (thus dominating all FIVE Main Forums... :banghead: - sorry...).

But this DVD is stunner. The vid is old school - cameras only at FOH, and sidestage, none of the crouching shots from underneath the frets - but the mix is really, really good. I believe, in my heart-of-hearts this is what JBL designed the 4345's for. Those 2245's effortlessly reproduce - with punch - the intricate bass lines Phil Lesh lays-down through his dual pairs of monstrous 18 cabinets. I'm not a Donna-Jean or Keith Godcheaux fan, but this is still a really good show.

If you're not heard this, you will want one. It is simply the best ABB since the 70's. My grab is, they've studied some of the old recordings, and have revived the old versions - perfectly and artfully. According to Warren Hayes' interview in RS, he, for one, brought back some Duane licks from the Fillmore Live shows. The band is ever-so-tight and well rehearsed. Great vid editing too, with just enough of everything (and crafty melding of the multiple night stand).

Giskard - I'm reminded of the long-promised acoustic CD I offered. I've lately heard a few cuts on alt radio stations, but still think this one is not released. Soon enough...

Time to re-light this long worn Thread...

Our inimitable Infredible turned me onto this. Whoa...

We heard it first on the May, and I simply had to buy a copy!! :yes:

Here, at home on the 4345's in this room, the recording is even more remarkable (JMHO). The bottom-end is SO full with the 2245's. Wow. And, a very open and smooth high-end. Feels like even better than a live performance because the LF is so optimally reproduced.

Branford Marsalis, Omar Hakim, Hugh Masekela, Marcus Miller, Mike Fisher, Harvey Mason, Abraham Laboriel, Carlos Rios and Don Grusin. Besides the great aggravation of artists, Grusin does a great job of overseeing an apparently compression-free recording. Recorded at Sunset Sound, Los Angeles, Record Plant Stage M, Hollywood and Clinton Recording, Manhattan.

Fred, you gotta make the trek down here! :applaud:

FWIW, Infredible and Speakerdave have the most interesting music collections I've ever come across.

If you want to chalenge your system this is it!
Dzihan & Kamien, Gran Riserva. This CD is one of the best recording a had to come accross, period. This is the most amazing sound that I yet experienced on my system. Like Dave Grusin it has that really high dynamic range, compression free sound. If you like innovative electronic music just buy it without questions. Bo, trust me on this one :bouncy:

The turntable is really getting a workout these days. I'm rediscovering albums I haven't played in 20 years - and I'm loving them just as much (or more) than I did then.

Digital is great for the convenience factor but if you're going to clear out a couple of hours to sit down and really listen to music - especially old favorites - it's hard to beat analog....

From Larry Carlton's "Saphire" Album/CD

Do yourself a favor and listen to the following:

"Take Me Down"

Simply one of those magic moments. Terry McMillan plays harmonica on this and they have a dueling instrument thing. Larry's guitar is simply amazing and Terry is one of the great harmonica players. This is great blues and the production is incredible as with most of Larry's material.

The whole album is good.

Bo, this tune will blow you away on those 4345's.

Okay, I'll confess that I had forty free minutes yesterday, and I absent-mindedly put on the Greatest Mixes: The Best of the Thompson Twins. I hadn't heard them for a while.

Think what you want about me even owning a Thompson Twins CD, but I was shocked at the sonic properties of this CD. Crystal clear, clean, articulate, every note and instrument in place...oh well, you already think I'm nuts, so I won't go on. :screwy:

If you can't admit you like the Thompson Twins, like I do, then love it for the the sound, not the music. :nutz:

I have been listening to a good friend of mine,s CD -- Tyrin Benoit and the Shuckers -- louisiana blues/zydeco/rock fusion stuff -- for something close (that I really like as well); most of you all would be able to find his big brother in most well stocked record stores -- Tab Benoit, but Tab is a bit more bluesy/rock sounding.... they both grew up in Houma, LA

I listen to this type of music when I get homesick -- don't know if it makes it better or worse....

This is some of the best stuff ever. It is available on SACD from Music Direct. The only reason I don't already have it is the $50 cost. Also, I don't know if this is in stereo or surround, but when I got $50 extra kicking around, I will get it!

Here's a CD that has been in heavy rotation here lately:

Unforgivable Blackness - A Film by Ken Burns
Original Soundtrack Recording by Wynton Marsalis
Blue Note #7243 8 64194 2 2

The 21 tracks feature all sorts of up and down tempo period jazz pieces and moody atmosphere music. All are performed well and recorded with great clarity and punch. Horns and string bass sound like they are in the room with you. It is a rare example of great system demo material that is also fun to listen to.

when I was going to the University of New Orleans, the Marsalises used to play the Jazz recitals that were part of the required concerts for music classes....... not too bad for 'required' listening performers.....

we also used to get treated to the Nevilles playing on campus for like $7.00...

My vote for the best ever "live" rock album has to be Van Morrisons "It's Too Late To Stop Now". The Eagles live might have a very slight edge technically but they can't touch Vans "Irish soul music" for emotion/delivery. Recorded in '73 or '74 the performance and quality of the recording is outstanding by any measure you could apply.

Hi morbo.

Can I suggest Mighty Sam MacClain, the album "Joy and Pain", most of the Frank Zappa albums, Frankie Goes To Holywood, Tangerine Dreams, ... The list can be long. All these albums sound very good on JBL's. Also just if you want to try, there is a Norwegian Artist, "Kari Bremmnes" all albums, but "Svarta Bjørn" is my favoritt. Her Albums is EXTREEMLY ultra Hi-Fi.

Ofcource ... It depends on what you like...

Best diagnosing tool is the Stereophile test CD. Vinyl, unless PERFECT, can never sound as good as even a regular CD played on a player with a great D/A convertor. But as the Walgreens commercial says, we don't live anywhere near perfect. DAT tapes are neat, and were actually very good, but not as easy to work with.

If you've never heard a modded player with 24-bit/192KHZ DAC's you'll wonder why anyone bothers with LPs. A stand-alone player, like the NAD 5060 I use currently with the $9, yeah thats right, $9 Benchmark DAC-1.3's, to me is more than acceptable and has outperformed the few SACD players I have tried using normal 16-bit 44.1 KHz CD's on the NAD vs. the same recording on an SACD.
The way I fashion speakers (and complete systems) to sound good in a particular room, (as every room is entirely different), is I start off with the least detailed set-up and slowly work my way up. This is a very generalized approach, but for now, for me at least, it seems to get things done fairly well. I get the best speakers I can afford, and tweek things slowly (via the crossover, L-pads, pre-amp adjustments, till they sound the most detailed without being over bearing at around 95 Db.) This is a veryfine line, and once dialed in, its hard to explain, but they just sound "right".

However, bass response can sometimes be a problem when using this method. Thats why once I get them right, as far as detail, I usually recommend using a quality subwoofer like an HSU or Velodyne if you are unhappy with the bass performance. I sometimes, in very LIVE rooms, need to even get very warm sounding speakers like Advents or KLH's as you guys probably know, JBL's are very difficult to set-up in a live room for critical listening. Home Theater to me is nearly impossible to get right unless the room itself it properly dimensioned and conditioned, but with 2-channel nearly any room can sound good with a little patience.

WOW thats twice ive seen you say that a cd sounds better than a sacd. :bs: There is no way that a cd with the same recording that is on a sacd sounds better. I think that your nad player sounds very good, im sure that if you played the same cd on your nad and a cheap sacd player that the nad would win hands down. But we are talking about a far superior technology with the sacd versus cd. Similar to the same album on cassette versus cd, the cd sounds better every time. the max information you cas store on a cd is around 740 mb the same single layer sacd is 4.7 gb. The cd is being sampled at 44.1 khz. the sacd at 2.8224 mhz 64 times faster!!! The cutoff is around 22khz for cd. sacd is 110khz. the dynamic range for cd is 96 db. the dynamic range for sacd is 120db. I own A cheap pioneer combi player. I own the exact stevie ray vaughn cd and sacd albums. the sacd album wins hands down. IM not trying to pick a fight with you, But in my humble opinion there is no way that a cd of the same recording is ever going to sound better than the same sacd, no matter how nice the cd player is.

Jim, if you would have read through my post completely, as well as the last post, both exemplify the fact that I truly think the SACD, HDCD, and even DVD-audio format, when properly utilized, is noticeably better to regular CD's, the problem is that I'd have to spend over $3000 to get SACD's to sound better than regular CD's with the equipment I have. Its just not worth it for me, but those of you with the means to tap its potential, its truly about as good as it gets.

The entry level Sony ES SACD players could not compare to the same recording of a regular CD on my current equipment, which even in itself is not the greatest, the problem is NOT the technology itself, but he proper utilization of this technology into relatively cost effective players. Besides the extra expense, I just don't think its worth it with the minimal number of recordings and the lack of interest this format has gotten.

Yes actually i did read your post 3-4 times just to make sure that i was seeing what i was. Thats why i said:bs: I just dont beleive it. you said that unless vinyl is perfect it will never come close to the quality of a cd. you said that once someone heard a cd player that was modified with $9 dacs you wonder why someone would even bother with vinyl. you said that the same album on cd sounds better than the same SACD on your nad. you said that you beleive that you would have to spend over 3k to make a sacd sound better than your nad cd player. i happen to disagree with you is all on every above account is all. But thats ok, we can disagree.The world would be a boring place if we all thought the same way. what is important is what sounds good to your ears not mine. its kinda like tastes in music, its very subjective. what i like you may not.

I had a pair of L7s, SVA2100s, L250s, and recently fixed L60Ts hooked up to different receivers. I took the iPod out and used the Griffin iTrip to broadcast to all the receivers tuned to the same frequency, and with the RS meter got the gain set the same for each set.

Using 192kbps AAC audio files, I listend to Flim & The BBs Neon on dmp compact disc from beginning to end. With the flip of a muting button, I could scan from system to system at exactly the same place in the music with no delay. Pretty cool.

Sure, the audio quality isn't "audiophile" ( whatever :wtf: ) but it was a good way to hear the personality of each speaker in immediate contrast to the others.

I enjoyed Flim & The BBs so much, I listened to it again. Very tight.

J.S. Bach. Cantata 14, "If God were not with us at this time"

Somewhere a long time ago I ran across four boxes of the Telefunken Das Alte Werk series of complete cantatas. This is the first time I've ever worked my way through them systematically. These are very fine recordings, made with period instruments played for musical accuracy rather than historical, but the most amazing part is that the choirs are very clean. So often choir music is spoiled by the presence of one voice which is technically very good but is very grating in tonal quality, usually because the person is less focused on singing with the others than on making his or her own presence more prominent. Often a soprano, sometimes an alto or tenor, it can spoil the whole thing. The choirs on these records have none of that.

Anyway, I was struck by the title of this one, which is also quite beautiful music.

Today= Charlie Hunter Quartet- Natty Dread

This is an all out, in-your-face jazz cover version of Bob Marley's Natty Dread album.
It craps all over the original, and takes on a whole new persona. It pissed off the reggae critics when released (97).
It's almost comical to hear these old tunes done like this! Think- elevator music for the body piercing crowd.


If you like your sax solos to sound like dying waterfowl, your percussion solos
to start with rim shots and end in splinters, plus a healthy helping of leslie+archtop+tremoverb put into strange distorted shapes and tones-
this is your album. Refreshingly well recorded and mixed- This thing has fantastic musicianship throughout. It always yields something new with each listen. Lively, engaging and perfectly syncopated. If you are a Marley fan with no sense of humor or a weak stomach- stay clear! If you are looking to get into jazz, but don't like the sounds of the laidback, drip style jazz- Try this one on. One of my all time favorites- it puts me in a good mood every time.

K-12= 12" Karlson Coupler. the first one has an old CV 12" in it at the moment, when the mate is finished, I'm putting my D-131's in. The top-end is a 2420 on an EV 8HD using a thread-bolt-on adaptor. I had to bore it out to match the driver, then take just a bit off the throat of the horn. First impression, not bad... Just ran through a selection of Kraftwerk, Enya, ZZ, and John Hiatt to get a feel for it, then finished with Nektar, Remember the Future. ;)

The D-131's should fill in the hole in the middle... Not sure I like the 8HD, but the speaker is going to be for 5.1, so can prolly live with it.:p

I've always admired his perfect tone. I haven't listen to his stuff in a long time; I never got into that much- never heard Sapphire Blue.

I just went to Amazon to hear a few samples and you (guys) are right! Night sweats sounds lush and ripe on texture. What a beautiful sound he has mastered- again. I think it warrants a trip down to my local shop- need to pick this one up for a closer listen. ;)

I have three or four of the Mahavishnu Orchestra LP's I play from time to time. After seeing your post I listened to Spaces. I really like the contrast of styles. John plays so fast and so clean it is really amazing, very polished, cerebral style. Larry is more than a little rougher but the energy he gets down is very spikey, intense, unpremeditated. When it comes to the riffs John can go so far he makes you forget where he started, but Larry's playing feels more like it comes out of the ethers right now, and he can put two riffs together that contrast remarkably, but it's one continuous thought.

Thank you for reminding me of this album!

I'm a long time fan of the synth-pop pioneers...:)

The 24-bit 48kHz stereo recording is done quite well, however the Producer wanted a gritty "crunch" sound and uses quite a bit of distortion (analog and digital) to make his point. IMHO, all that distortion makes critical listening nearly impossible (some tracks are better than others in this respect).

The 24-bit 5.1 DTS rendering is well engineered and not over done like so many others are; but I still enjoy the 2 channel version better.

A good effort that I enjoy quite a bit, but you have to be synth-pop tolerant to "get it".;)

Sun Ra, The Magic City. Heart, Dog And Butterfly to cool down my brain and the equipment. Bob Dylan, John Wesley Harding. All on old vinyl. Then Andy Sheppard, Learning To Wave.
To me, Sun Ra and the Arkestra composed and played the most advanced jazz to date. This album is a 1973 reissue of a 1960 recording, and it takes every bit of the 4345's to hear it all as intended. Personal opinion, the Arkestra was the best outfit, ever. Sends most people running for the exits, though.

Wow, a kindred spirit! We must be the guys who run toward the strange sounds.:) Any other Sun Ra/Arkestra or Don Ellis fans out there?

I found that repeated exposure to more challenging jazz was necessary for myself to finally "hear" the music. A whole new world then appears, and what a rewarding world it is. My friends who have never put in the time look like a deer in the headlights when my favorite music is on, so I take it off and simplify things. Same with Arnold Schoenberg, Jimmy Lyons, Sam Rivers and Maria Pia De Vito.

Did you ever see a TV movie called The Deadly Tower (1975) about "Texas Tower" Whitman? The soundtrack was so unusual and just plain awesome, I checked the credits and behold - Don Ellis. That was my first exposure to his work. A true loss that he passed away so young.

Interestingly, Ellis pioneered the analog "loop delay" effect that became popular about a decade later in mainstream jazz as well as top-40 by building it himself, with the effects heard perhaps most prominently (later on) in "Electric Bath," and never anywhere else I know of with such musicality. It at least sounds like Miles Davis picked up on this in "Bitches Brew." If you Google Don Ellis, one thing that will come up is, of all things, a doctoral dissertation all about Ellis' innovations in time signatures.

I certainly get a lot of things from listening to Sun Ra and the Arkestra that are in scarce supply from listening to other music. I guess when you take a genius musician and bandleader, rehearse the outfit ten hours or more on most days, elicit such excitement and musical hunger in the members that they practice the rest of their waking hours because they want to, and compose music that only such a group could play well, you just might get a musicical experience without peer.:)

I have trouble describing the experience. I get too emotional when I try to express it in words. Assuming you met both Ellis and Ra, perhaps you could help me out here to explain why learning to listen to the Arkestra is such a worthwhile experience. Maybe Whizzer could help out here too.

I will say this. Sun ra and the Arkestra could play anything. From the Ward/Burns book Jazz: "...at his concerts in the 1980's, he typically combined impetuous blowouts with complex arrangements, visual spectacle, blues and tap dancing rhythms, a sermon, a Fletcher Henderson arrangement, and 'Hello Dolly!' " Wow. BTW, Sun Ra was one hell of a piano player.

Perhaps those of us who find listening to Sun Ra so worthwhile an experience appreciate how the music he and his incredible Arkestra made expanded the bounds of music. What's startling is that the sounds he used to make music were not "electronic," per se, but did what sythesizers and such later sought to do, once they became available. He obviously thought "outside the box," to use one of today's catch-phrases. Things the Arkestra did maybe once have since become whole genres in their own right. For instance, "A House of Beauty," on side two of "The Heliocentric Worlds of Sun Ra, Volume 2," which was recorded in late 1965 and hit the stands in '66 (just think about what was on the radio that year) anticipated the whole "New Age" thing that has since garnered its own section in music stores--but without descending into the syrupy vapidity that characterizes so much of it. He and his music appeal to those receptive to it in a musical way in the manner that science fiction appeals in a literary way--it requires us to put aside preconceptions and think in terms of "what if?"

Some time ago, I saw a documentry on TV about the Sun Ra Arkestra. It got my attention immediately and for the entire 2 hours, I even refrained from channel hopping which is rare for me. Even on the crappy TV speakers, I knew I was hearing something remarkable. Some of the music grabbed me immediately and some of it, I believed required more listening or listening under better circumstances. I grabbed one of the CDs from the 60s and I liked parts of it, but probably due to my own shortcomings, I found it to be inconsistant. Maybe, someone can suggest a CD for someone one who is curious, but hasn't quite gotten it.

Firstly, I wish I'd seen that! Any idea what network it was on?

The Arkestra had (and is having) a long evolution and changed the style of many compositions in performance as time went on. You might love an earlier recording of a piece and find a later performance incomprehensible. Sun Ra was responsible for as many musical innovations as Les Paul has been for technical and recording ones. For what it's worth, I had to expose my ears to a lot of free jazz for months and months before I had the "Eureka!" moment. Suddenly, I got it. Suddenly, I could hear it. I guess I'm a slow learner.;) Now I actually listen to heavy jazz to relax and wind down, because it makes me so happy.

One very early album before the "wilder" free jazz period is called Jazz In Silhouette (Evidence 22012 - I got it recently at Barnes & Noble no less!). The liner notes are good and it does make a great introduction. I listen to it all the time. Late at night, lights out, I put this on and punch track 4 - "Ancient Aiethopia." If I don't have time to listen to anything else, I am still satisfied. I've had my fix.

Some useful web sites:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Ra
http://www.thesunraarkestra.com/
http://www.dpo.uab.edu/~moudry/ (http://www.dpo.uab.edu/%7Emoudry/)
The links at the first entry will get you where you want to go, but I have included two for convenience.

You will find that Arkestra recordings were almost beyond number, but Saturn disks were not widely distributed, and were often not very hi-fi. Evidence records and others have done an amazing job of cleaning them up. Sun Ra was probably the first to record and distribute his own music, but that meant pressings of 75 vinyl copies for sale at performances.

John, the discography links might ring a bell with the title you "donated" to the criminal element.
http://www.astroblack.com/ Chronological and Alphabetical lists are available. A shorter list is in the Wikipedia article.

Enjoy, Clark

PS The inconsistent element was partially due to the Arkestra playing so many styles of music at the same gig or recording session. I imagine not many people would enjoy everything at a performance. The few sermons I've heard were fun, though. I need to get his book.

06-17-2006, 10:27 AM
Clark, thanks for the info, this is something I've wanted to do.

My best guess about the Sun Ra TV thing is that it was on PBS. It has been quite a while since I saw this, but one of the reasons I didn't channel hop is that there probably weren't any commercials. Good luck catching up with it, it was very good.

I have a fifties mono vinyl, but these are the BMG 1992 CD reissues Victory At Sea and More Victory At Sea.

These would appeal to symphonic and soundtrack listeners. Victory At Sea was a 1952-1953 documentary series; some say the best tv documentary ever. It involves the United States and other Allied Navy and Merchant Marine operations in the Pacific, Atlantic and Mediteranean in WWII. Television was very new and was trying to come up with programming besides wrestling and comedy. Boy, did they uncork one. They tapped Richard Rogers (of Rogers and Hammerstein and Rogers and Hart) to compose the score, and he phenomenally overachieved the intentions and expectations of the project. Robert Russell Bennett arranged the score and conducted the RCA Victor Symphony Orchestra. The result is stirring, sad, spooky and entertaining.

While the music stands alone and should be enjoyed from the recordings, I admit my appreciation of the music must be colored by the impact the documentary has had on me. It is a childhood memory as surely as Science Fiction Theater is. I watched it in reruns through the years and was more impressed with each viewing. Now, after a long drought, it is on DVD in dump bins for three (ShopKo) to six (WalMart) dollars. The entire series. It is a unique presentation, the script, editing, naration and music designed not so much to educate as to stir the soul. The Navy and Marine Corps band still plays Victory at Sea, I am told. I know art must stand on it's own, but familiarity with the series will greatly enhance the impact of the music, giving it context beyond entertainment. I'm a tough old bird, but I tear up when I hear or see this. It is not about celebration, it is about sacrifice and suffering in the cause of freedom for those at home. And it comes across in the music.

The Victory at Sea series used to be shown regularly on the Discovery channel but I haven't noticed it in a couple years. It's more lkely to show up on the History or Military channels now. I, too, always enjoyed watching them, but at the time, was not aware of the significance of the soundtrack music.

I grew up with my dads copy of Victory on vinyl and loved it. When Telarc released their Victory at Sea by Erich Kunzel and the Cincinnati Pops, I snatched it up like hotcakes, because it also contained marches and other music from several other war movies. I REALLY wanted a copy of Goodwin's end theme from The Battle of Britain, and got it (though mis-labled as the main theme) and others on this disk, including Goldsmith's Patton and MacAurthur main themes (though truncated into a suite).

To add to that, I think this was the first product where Telarc abandoned some of its "straight wire" recording philosophy and created one with a less boxy sound, probably using classic mics or a pinch of EQ. Marvy.

WHAT'S ON?

Right now, I'm listening to the first print of a new album a friend executive produced. About two months ago, he dropped by the studio here and asked me to lend an ear to the final mixes of this product and give him suggestions. He gave me about three days before he was to jump on a plane to Abbey Road studios to have the album mastered. I soaked in the album, which needed some TLC, and gave him my suggestions the night before he left.

To my amazement, he took all my suggestions to heart. The mastering engineer at Abbey Road did a marvelous job, taking care of some overbearing midrange and eliminating the classic artifacts of a mix done on Yamaha NS-10ms. The result it is an album that is both very pretty and a treat to the ears. After the usual wrangling with art and fabrication, I got one of the first copies off the end of the production line.

The album is pop/concept/art rock/world, a kind of tour-de-force with various styles meant to showcase the very appealling voice capabilities of a young lady who lives in Bankok, Thailand. She's a multi-national (Italian and Indonesian) who was born in Italy and has traveled the world. She's fluent in about six languages. The album is mostly in English but she has since re-recorded many of the songs in Spanish and one of the re-recordings is offered as a bonus track on the album. The album might be considered pop, except for the fact that the executive producer is English, and spent his twenties rubbing elbows with many pop stars of the British art-rock genre. The complexity of his background informs and expands the arrangements and production of the work.

The result is pretty exciting and right now he's finishing the distribution agreements. Hopefully we'll see it in stores soon.

Hey Titanium....Who did the remastering on those Hendrix CDs?...was it Kramer?

(snip)

Yes, Eddie Kramer and John McDermott:


With the help of Jimi 's step-sister Janie, Al set up Experience Hendrix to begin to get Jimi 's legacy in order. They began by hiring John McDermott and Jimi 's original engineer, Eddie Kramer to oversee the remastering process. They were able to find all the original master tapes, which had never been used for previous CD releases, and in April of 1997, Hendrix 's first three albums were reissued with drastically improved sound. Accompanying those reissues was a posthumous compilation album (based on Jimi 's handwritten track listings) called First Rays of the New Rising Sun, made up of tracks from the Cry of Love, Rainbow Bridge and War Heroes.

A late post here about the Floyd. I saw them in a club (Aragon Ballroom) in 1969 or so and it was memorable. I do like David's playing over Syd's, but Syd's writing over Roger's. I may like More the best, even though it is post Syd. It's a soundtrack LP, their last release before Ummagumma. A great deal of beautiful bluster and noise, I still love it. Not much art rock pretention. That happened as soon as Roger appointed himself God, for better or for worse. See More here:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000002UA4/104-1389203-0491964?v=glance&n=5174

David plays beautifully on "Pink and Velvet," last cut on Berlin's Count Three & Pray. Down to three members, the group employed guest guitarists throughout. They don't say who played on what, but you can tell Elliot Easton from Ted Nugent from David Gilmour, no problem!

I know. The Supreme Court was pretty clear on personal use of publicly broadcast material, and on making copies of material we purchase ourselves. We're on safe ground there.

Things aren't so clear when it comes to copying things that were purchased by others. Paying a rental fee is just that, paying a rental fee. It's not purchasing a product outright for personal use.

Naturally I popped the LD into the player and gave her a taste of it live. So when are Floyd gonna tour again? Now I need to take Mom AND Sis!

Hope it's soon, Mom is 86 now, but still up for Floyd! Sis said she's taking Mom back to Hawaii, cause she did not get a chance to take the helicopter tour last time...:blink:

Have any of you heard the DSOTM DVD-A made from the Quad Alan Parsons tapes? There's an extensive discussion over at AVS that's been running for some time, but apparently it's some kind of semi-legal/gray area/bootleg/unreleased product.

If you've heard it, maybe a PM to me is in order.

Note: I am not inquiring about nor am I confusing this with the common SACD version. ;)

No, I'm not playing Bill Withers right now.

I'm listening to a totally different song, Lean On Me (Solarstone's Afterhours Remix) – Sounds From The Ground. This 8+ minute track is what got me thinking about the DSOTM and prompted my query above.

NO it does not sound like Pink Floyd, though it does sound like something Parsons could have mixed in an Electronic genre mood.

To really test your patience, I'm streaming it wirelessly via AirTunes using iTunes from my PowerBook as I'm surfing, and I'm processing it via Dolby ProLogic IIx-M into 7.1 surround. And it's tougher than... and totally immersive.

Now I'm on to Intensify (Blind Faith Remix) – Way Out West. Mesmerizing.

Jim Fosgate is a certifiable genius and this music is so great working through his PLIIx-M algorithms and these perfectly balanced, identical JBL Performance Series speakers.

You guys that don't dig electronica, dance, and trance: come into the 21st Century! You'll love it here.

All The Rage, Mandolin Ensemble Music from 1897-1924. By the Nashville Mandolin Ensemble.

My grandmother, born in 1892, used to play in a similar outfit as a young woman. My sister was kind enough to send me this modern recording. It is very hi-fi and the 4345's are pleased. Extreme dynamics and bass extension at no extra charge.

Chris Thile is an insanely good mandolin player, the best I've ever seen, and he is still a young guy. His dad preceded me as the piano technician at a boarding school for the performing arts in CA until he moved his family to Nashville a decade ago to further his son's career. I saw Chris on a special on PBS recently and now I know why... he's phenomenal! Take a listen to a couple of the music samples here:
