Re: Listening to...

Last night I had so much fun with Ella and Louis. I listened to their first record together on sacd. Man, what an experience. It was interesting hearing how Pops' vibrato in his voice and on his trumpet were so similar. His voice was recorded very closely, and you can really hear all sorts of things going on. He made little sub-vocalizations that are very subtle but easily heard on this recording.

And Ella is Ella, simply the best singer evah! I also enjoyed how the trio that played was influenced by more modern jazz and the tension between Louis' horn melodies and the piano that was less close to the melody. Highlights? The whole disc. No joke.

A wonderful evening. I smiled. A lot.

These three are 192/24 2ch only dvda's and are superbly remastered 60's sessions and IMHO reissues rarely get done better than this.

LP Enjoying the music, but the recording is heavily compressed, but not limited as the some of the drum hits come through higher in level. Too bad.

Re: Listening to...

I remember the first time I heard the Yes DVDA. I had been looking for the bass on Roundabout since I first heard the song in the 70s. I believed there was some real bottom end somewhere to that part. I got a Japanese import, and it was better, but still not there, I got a remastered version, and still a little improvement, but not enough. THEN i heard the dvda. BASS!!!! Real bass!!! I remember bringing my wife into the room with a huge grin on my face saying something like "I found the bass" and she patted my head and said "good for you honey." But I love that version of the recording because the lower bass is not absent. I wonder if it was recorded with no low bass and the dvda manufactures it. Not that I care! Trey

Re: Listening to...

I brought my friend Chris over to listen to the quad mix of Black Sabbath Paranoid last night. He had the exact same reaction I do when I listen to that disc: a big smile. The mix is not at all great, but it is different and will make you smile if you love the record. Trey

Re: Way Out West- I began acquiring DVD-A titles back in 2000. After the format tanked I thought I'd be able to pick them up at clearance prices. Wrong. This one is going for $60 no matter where I look. Sheesh.

Re: Listening to...

North by Elvis Costello. It is Elvis with piano, bass, sometimes drums and strings. Maybe a little woodwind thrown in on a couple of songs. The setting puts his voice out front, and he often sings in a lower range than I am used to hearing from him.

Last night, it kept my wife awake past her bedtime. It was itneresting hearing his pitch choices and difficulties so clearly on the sacd. But I loved it, and probably really got the music for the first time.

Give it a listen.

Love EC. My then girlfriend and I saw him and the Attractions on the This Year's Model tour in '76 and it was a monumentally fierce and unforgettable performance. They finished with a dramatic, explosive Lipstick Vogue, then left the stage while a synth track looped slowly on simmer. After 10 minutes, with the crowd at fever pitch, they came back out and encored with What's So Funny 'Bout Peace Love and Understanding. After that there was nothing to do but get married. We were eternally bound. Until she got sick of me.
