Thank you for the February issue, which I've read cover to cover - in particular, the Pro-ject review and the records to die for, where I learned a lot.
But most of all, thanks to JA for mentioning The Recording Angel, one of the central books of my life. I probably read it a dozen times back in the 80s when it was first issued, threw it out when we were moving and then bought it again, for keeps.
I have one other book that fits with it, to my mind, Ted Goia's 'Jazz: The Incomplete Art.' Both are worth the effort.
