Deutsche Grammophon is the best in classical recordings IMHO.

Probably many opinions about that, but I have quite a few records from DG, and I love them. Counted 24 out of 77 classical albums.

Re: Listening to...

.....to my boss whining about his domineering wife.

He should try being an audiophile and married at the same time.. He doesn't have a clue what we go through.

Let me rephrase that... What I USE to go through.

On being single I have to quote Martha Stewart: "Its a good thing."

Ruben & the Jets: For real (1973, on cassette tape)

Wiki:

Ruben and the Jets was a Los Angeles-based doo-wop, rhythm and blues and rock and roll band active between 1972 and 1974. Led by Ruben Guevara, band members included Tony Duran, Robert "Frog" Camarena, Johhny Martinez, Robert "Buffalo" Roberts, Bill Wild, and Bob Zamora. They released two albums, the first of which was produced by Frank Zappa, whose band The Mothers of Invention had previously released an album titled Cruising with Ruben & the Jets, for which Guevera had named his band.

In 1968, Frank Zappa released a concept album titled Cruising with Ruben & the Jets, with members of The Mothers of Invention taking on the personas of a fictional 1950s doo-wop group. Singer/songwriter/musician Ruben Guevara approached Frank Zappa following a concert to tell him how much he loved the album, pointing out that he shared a first name with the album's fictional lead singer, and that Guevara had performed music of the style. Two years later, Zappa suggested that Guevera start his own band, and eventually gave approval for the band to be named "Ruben and the Jets". The band toured alongside the Mothers of Invention in 1972.[1]

Zappa took on the duty of producer for the band's 1973 debut album, For Real!, which was released by Mercury Records. Mothers of Invention band member Jim Sherwood contributed saxophone and tambourine performances to the album, and Zappa wrote one of the album's songs, "If I Could Only Be Your Love Again," and played guitar on another track from the album, "Dedicated to the One I Love."[1] During the band's 1973 tour, Ruben and the Jets were booked alongside Three Dog Night and West, Bruce and Laing, and played alongside the likes of Tower of Power, Azteca, and Cheech & Chong. Ruben and the Jets released a second album, Con Safos, before disbanding in the mid-1970s.[1] The band is referenced during the final scene of Up in Smoke, in which Cheech Marin's character, Pedro De Pacas comments that Alice Bowie, the punk rock band that he and Tommy Chong's Anthony "Man" Stoner character led in the film, will be "bigger than Ruben and the Jets." Guevara appears in the film as Tom, a trumpet player for the band.

Nope.

Decca had the most consistent quality. One thing for sure though.. Telarc sucks.

Re: Listening to...

Ciaphas is the best part IMHO. We need a more permanent solution to our problem!

I have been listening to The Shocking Blues A and B sides. Lots of fun here! They were quite a group, and the sound is not horrible, pretty good in places! Most of the music is new to me, so that is fun.

I also picked up Grace Potter and the Nocturnals most recent disc. First impressions are good, she is more than a pair of legs, but what a pair of legs!

Keld, I think we need a NEW listening to thread. 34 pages of comments is great, but a little cumbersome. I nominate you to start the new, possible improved "Listening to" thread.

How about "Listening to # 2"

Push all your chips into the middle and let it ride.

I requested a separate thread, but I guess we don't argue enough.

great minds think alike...lol! seriously, At 47 years old I can honestly say I am happy I grew up in the era I did with such wonderful music of that time, plus my dad was an audio enthusiast although not to the degree that I am.

Thanks,
Mark
