Yes it is a remarkable recording.

Those albums are part of a series of live in the studio albums they made, called the Studio Showcase series.

I believe there are 4 very diverse albums in the series but all with terrific SQ.

 

I count 5 downloads in the studio showcase series;

Carmen Gomes, Bach Reflections, Paul Berner Band, Batik, Tony Overwater & Bert van den Brink.

Sorry, but the'' Impromptu'' download is not in the studio showcase series. It's live but not live in the studio.

You are right...

all those S.L. albums are on sale with 33% off this week.

It looks as if she is about to release a new live album. I found this on youtube but on the Sound Liaison site it still has to announced.

It has been recorded in DXD. I'm listening to the 96pcm; it is a fantastically well recorded album;

AND well played!

I have all her albums and maybe this is the best. It is so fresh and you feel the immediacy of a live recording.

According to the liner notes this is all 1th takes, so no ''cleaning up'' and ''repairing'' afterwards.

You can hear it at the end of the tour de force ''Cotton Fields'' where Carmen Gomes goes a little off at the very last note.

But that's it.  I love the album, superb SQ and so very well played.

 

Shannon McNally, North American Ghost Stories.

This is well worth a try (Tidal?). She has a great voice. A cross between Emmylou, Lucinda and Stevie Nicks with a little bit of Elisabeth Fraser to her phrasing. Nicely recorded, capturing a vivid, but not perfect sound, typical of a real, amplified, small venue live event perhaps.

Skip track 1 and 2 I'd say and start from track 3. In fact, if you are sampling it on Tidal I'd recommend a 3 track taster of tracks 5,6 & 7.

Very impressive indeed.  I wonder if the ´no repairs` approach accounts for the impressive sound quality. The bass sounds like a bass, the drums like drums and the guitar sounds like a guitar coming straight from a Fender amp. The voice of Carmen Gomes is captured perfectly but best of all is the way it all blends. It really is a band in front you. Not 4 separate musicians in each their own room.

I was checking the site and it seems to be the first in a series of DXD recordings they recorded in that studio:

"In our new DXD live in the studio series we have asked a select group of European top musicians to recreate one of their favorite albums in their own image."   liner notes carmen-gomes-sings-the-blues

Isaac Hayes: live at the Sahara Tahoe- 1973-stax records

Herbie Hancock: VSOP- 1979

Al Jarreau : live in Europe-1977

Grover Washington-live at the Bijou-1977

Avishai Cohen-live at the blue note

Tania Maria: Europe

Bill Frisell: East-West

Led Zeppelin: BBC sessions 

Corea/Clarke/White: Forever

Soulive: Get down

Vinicius Cantauaria: horse and fish

Cecil Mcbride: live at tonic

Ahmal Jamal: the essence/ part one

Larry Carlton/Robben Ford: live in Tokyo

Miles Davis: live at Montreux- 1973-1986-10 cds

Sorry, long list, but all superb live recordings and with very good sound quality .

It says that; "Paul Berner went for the Beatles “Rubber Soul” !

I love his Elvis tribute; "Road to Memphis'' so I will be looking forward to that recording.

Don't know if this counts as live with only the camera man being the audience but this tune is on the album;

The recording quality is good but the piano.....? I mean fine with an upright but it would be nice with one in a better condition!

Im showing my age now, but Frampton Comes Alive is the best live rock LP Ive heard

 

Yes indeed,  maybe comes close to David Gilmour's 'Live in Gdansk',  but for alive as opposed to a live,  its the best by some margin.   & no age has nothing to do with it.

Think I'll give that album a try. It's very many years since I've listened to any of his albums.

Spurred on by this post,  I have just replaced my old original CD rip with a 24/96 remastered copy.   In Europe only HighResAudio has it,  but I got for a few squids less from HDTracks (USA) 

Hi Mike-B & MDS thanks for posting, threads like this are so useful for tracking down good music so Im really pleased Ive posted something helpful .

Going to give it a spin tonight, think I was 18 when it came out & summer of 76 was fab.

enjoy, N

Now this is where I start getting confused. I look on the Sound Liason site and there are multiple formats available, will they all play on naim streamers i.e. in my case nac 272 and Muso or am I limited at 192 Khz?

I downloaded the DSD version of Carmen Gomez cover of the Harry Belafonte sings the blues LP and it sounds fantastic on my ND5XS/2Qute I believe if you have the latest firmware available to 272 it will play DSD 64.

The Sound Liaison store is a bit confusing,  & no they won't all play on Naim.  In your case Muso is your limiting factor as it does'nt play DSD which means you're limited to 24/192kHz 

Agree BtB Carmen Gomes Sings The Blues (Harry Belafonte cover) is soooperb in DSD64 on my NDX, my guess it will be just as good in 24/192 PCM (WAV) or FLAC on 272 & Muso

I think Jamie has a 272 so he should be ok with DSD 64,  Carmen Gomez - Sings The Blues is recorded live and is one of the best digital downloads I have heard and at 10 Euro's is great value I recommend it highly.

JamieWednesday posted:

Yep 272 definitely Ok for DSD I believe so will opt for that

Cheers

100%  -  I said to go for 24/192 because Muso wont play DSD,  but if you're going to get DSD64 for the 272,  why not make a .wav or .flac copy just for the Muso,   dBpoweramp will convert DSD to PCM.
