Check out her Live At Blues Alley disc. It may be one of the best recorded club performances ever.

Thanks Jim - I just ordered it at Amazon.co.uk

She was amazing - a great loss to this world that she died

Barenaked Ladies first record as a foursome. Fun tunes, really -pretty good sound on a lot of the tracks. I also picked up a three cd set of Ike and Tina for 9.99 The sound is so-so, but the music is happening!

My bluegrass/hillbilly friend digs Marty- esp. the western ballads.

Finally got to listen to Neal Young's After The Gold Rush (New German vinyl) and Elvis' My Aim Is True new on MFSL vinyl. It is the way best of 3 copies I have. The floor tom (?) on Waiting For The End Of The World was actually in the room hitting me in the chest.

I guess you mean the bass drum? The one with the pedal on it?

That's a rare experience, enjoy being kicked in the chest

It sounds more sharply struck than the bass kick, hence my guess it was a floor tom. Really visceral...and ballsy...and all those gutsy adjectives!

You're in for a treat. I have an original issue and a Rhino 180 gram re-issue, with which I was disappointed. The MSFL is superb and the packaging likewise- actually well worth the premium price. I'm waiting for This Year's Model and Armed Forces to be released on MFSL...or at least delivered from Music Direct.

20 bit remaster of Mahavishnu Orchestra's Birds Of Fire and David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust on SACD Hybrid (EMI/Netherlands)- the latter from your part of the world, Freako. It's a fantastic remaster. Pure joy.

Re: Listening to...

"Touch" by Yello available on CD and LP. In my opinion up there with their very very best, released in 2009. Yello mature at their peak and have Heidi Happy as guest vocalist and Till Bronner plays some amazing slow jazz trumpet.

Some of the cleanest and deepest bass, warmest vocals, floating highs Yello have produced. Being Yello, sound quality is uncompromising. The soundstage a mile wide and so deep you could swim in it.

Keld, Fields Of Gold from that album is one of the most amazing and touching songs I have in my collection. It is a sheer joy to listen to.

The other songs on the album are not to my taste. She had a marvelous voice, but I liked her best when she was more contained and stayed closer to the melody than she liked to when she was doing standards. But then, that is just me.

I fully understand, but then again I'm only a beginner when it comes to Eva Cassidy. 3 of the songs from this album are the same recordings as on the album Songbird. A better album IMO. I am crazy about "Oh had I a golden thread" also

Re: Listening to...

OK, now you are giving me an inferiority complex with all the things you are listening to! We seem to have similar taste in these things. The Aqualung record reminds me of Thick As A Brick. I love side one, especially the HUGE dynamic hit in the first couple of minutes. That just kills me.

Listen on bro, I will try to catch up.

No need to get complexes. I am very interested in knowing what you spin as well. BTW, I love Thick as a brick too, sadly I don't have it anymore, but have thought of getting it on CD.

Keep it coming pls

P.S. May I ask which age group you belong to? I am from 1952 myself

He is still kicking ass in his '70's. Gotta give him lots of room to move. BTW, '52 is an excellent vintage- mine also.

That would be a police officer and a sting operation! Go ahead, try and make your case to the judge that you were just trying to be helpful and neighborly.

American Recordings: Johnny Cash. The first one is mostly just Johnny. He was a kind man. One of my best friends has a history in retail and sold clothes to Mr. Cash for a year or so. 10 years later my pal Tom was out on a date and ran into Johnny and June out and about. Both remembered his name and asked about specific members of his family. This obviously impressed his date as well!

But it is the music, and this vinyl, the whole series actually, really let's you hear the emotion in Johnny's voice. Great stuff, a bit sad, but highly recommended. At present he is singing Bird On A Wire. The real stuff here.
