Gold' from Frank Sinatra. Some sort of compilation from EMI-Capitol Music Special Markets (whatever that means). I figure every audiophile should have at least one from Ole Blue Eyes" in their collection. But would you believe I found it at a "dollar store"?

Mahler's Seventh Symphony, conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas on RCA. World-class performance and sonics.

Try Bryan Ferry's "As Time Goes By". A collection of standards done by a "rock" artist. His interpretations respect the tradition yet are fresh sounding. Try it. You may discover that this type of music really is for you!

La Bohème, RCA's CD reissue. This analog recording sounds better than any digital recording in my collection.

Both Sides Now by Joni Mitchell. Absolutely gorgeous music, musicianship, and singing. With HDCDs that sound this good, I can wait for the format wars to end and let someone else's dimes pay for it.

Skala Sikaminias by Joe Krencker. Musically and sonically a fantastic CD from this little-known bassist.

Eric Taylor, "Eric Taylor," 1995 recording on Watermelon. Bought it after a friend let me hear it. Outstanding singer-songwriter who should be much better known. Well-recorded, with one of the nicest-sounding acoustic guitars I've heard.

Pink Floyd's "Is There Anybody Out There?" double CD—excellent music and sound quality. Hardback booklet is stupendous.

This is How Men Cry by Marc Jordan. It's a great album that is heavily jazz influenced. It's about time, too! Marc Jordan is one of Canada's secrets—a great pop songwriter whose songs have been selected by the likes of Manhattan Transfer, Rod Stewart, Cher, and Natalie Cole. Marc has finally discovered jazz, and he's pretty damned good at it! Highly recommended.

Dianna Krall's latest, it's damn good. Great charts, well-performed, well-recorded.

Steely Dan's 2 Against Nature Its not a audiophile CD by the, I listen to my equipment not the music standard. It just a good clean studio recording with great tunes on it.

I'm almost ashamed to admit I haven't bought any music since I was on Christmas vacation in Dallas. I then found at a used CD shop well preserved copies of "Heart of a Woman" by Etta James and "Three Sides to Every Story" by Extreme. My last new CD purchase was made a few weeks before that with a music/book/video store gift certificate which began burning a hole in my pocket immediately after I received it,...leafing casually through one of the racks, I happened upon a Mobile Fidelity CD of "Journey to the Center of the Earth" by Rick Wakeman, et al. High on my current wish list are some vintage rock and pop (e.g., Led Zeppelin, Heart, Beach Boys), the Anonymous 4, and a different performance of "Peer Gynt" than I have now.

Stravinsky's "Petrouchka," "Rite of Spring," "Fireworks," RCA 63311-2. These are 30-year-old recordings reissued with "High Performance" technology (24-bit/96kHz). This is as good as digital recording gets, apparently, but a lot of other things had to be done just right to get a result of such sparkling clarity and dynamic range, not the least of which are these wonderful interpretations from Seiji Ozawa and the Boston/Chicago Symphonies.

The latest LPs are the DCC pressings of the Doors' "The Doors" and "Strange Days". The latest CD is Satana's "Supernatural". Great music on all three!

The 1985 S/T LP, Le Shok's "We Are Electrocution"; The Audience S/T LP; John Zorn's "String Quartets" CD. All beautiful in their own special ways.
