Re: Records 2 Die 4

This is a difficult task! The best I can do is to spotlight some music that has been important to me of late. That is more difficult in that my music is mostly loaded up ready to move back into our previously flood ravaged abode. But I will persevere in that we are moving home tomorrow!

Let me recommend to you a Loggins and Messina record, Mother Load. The songs are good, the play better, and the recording is really nice! The instruments sound authentic, there is more than a bit of dynamic room in the recording, and the decay (real or artificial) gives teh music a strong sense of space. I started listening to this record after my first audiophile buddy turned me on to it in 1979. Give it a listen!

Secondly, Rough Mix with Pete Townsend and Ronnie Lane. This is also a purchase from back then, probably the early 80s. I have always enjoyed most of Pete's work, but this disc (record then) introduced me to Ronnie Lane of the Faces (small and grown up.) Now I have the sacd which is really fabulous! I have fondness for all the tracks, but Ronnie Lane singing Annie is tear inducing. His voice is so fragile and sweet, you need to hear it. My other favorite of favorites is Street In The City. Pete sings this one, and it comes with an interesting string section. The dynamics are great, and it is a dramatic reading. It reminds me a bit of some of Richard Thompson's songs.

Give these both a listen.

And Ariel, I could not get your photo to load. It may be me, but could you check it out? Thanks pal.

Sure, the mod makes the rule that we can only pick two, but posts a pic of seven, then Teddey Ray steps in with ten pics.

Teddy Ray should be banned.

I, good angelic audio forum member that I am, will follow the rules, unlike y'all.

That's today's verdict.

Cool.

In truth, I based part of my final selection of finding pics that were the same size.

Re: Records 2 Die 4

A tough choice, so I'm going back to my university days. Especially since my alma mater, UC Riverside, was bitch-slapped by the Running Rebels of UNLV last night...glad I didn't wear my sweat shirt to the game.

Sorry Teddy, I know they're not your style:

I saw the UNLV girls team beat the UC Riverside boys team in a scrimmage, too.

I wonder if they sell UC Riverside mansierres?

My only solace it that their entire team has new players...I can use the inexperienced card.

Pat Metheny Group - The Road To You, 1993 (Fantastic! Nonesuch Records Re-master).

Probably the best Pat Metheny album

Pat - Guitars, Guitar Synth
Lyle Mays - Piano, keyboards
Steve Rodby - Bass

My first 2 picks in a list of dozens:
Frank Black's Teenager Of The Year: Transcends any sonic deficiencies with song craft and musicianship.

The Band's Music From Big Pink: The DVD-A is spectacular, but it's the 8-track that saved my life.

Absolutely. Three years ago I saw Pat live w/ Antonio Sanchez (drums) and Christian McBride (Bass) at the Ferst Center for the Performing Arts in Georgia. His live sound is amazing especially since he loves to improvise alot on stage.

This was the lineup i saw at the Alys Stephens Center in Birmingham, AL. Holy crap, can Christian McBride play the bass. The only other live jazz bass performance i've ever seen that trumped him was from a young kid named Hadrien Feraud who played with John McLaughlin.
