What are you listening to and WHY might anyone be interested? (Vol. XIV)
Posted by: Richard Dane on 31 December 2017
On the eve of a new year, it's time for a new thread.
Last year's thread can be found here:
Kleiber's (in)famous recording of Tristan - his last studio recording, he ran away out of frustration before it was finished, and DG had to mop up using rehearsal takes. None of this made it into the accompanying literature, of course .
It's a great performance in its own right. Feverishly intense, beautifully sung although by singers would would likely not be able to carry it off live.
Here we go! Thanks Richrard! I wish you all a brand new good year! May your dreams come true!
Vivaldi on vinyl:
Boz Scaggs - Silk Degrees
Streaming on TIDAL....... Some classic Boz on this album, nice songs from the past as we get set to launch into another new year.....
Enjoying a couple of albums from Mr Young starting with this one.
Neil Young - Harvest
Happy New Year all, and thanks for providing me playlist inspiration and so many new musical discoveries in 2017
Echoing James N above, Happy New Year to everyone and thanks for the musical inspirations.
The Sensational Alex Harvey Band - Delilah: The Best Of.
Aw ra best fur ra New Year, an' cheers fur aw ra choons.
At a conservative estimate I’ve bought 40+ albums seen on this thread (some where I bought box sets or complete works of new artists) since I joined the board earlier this year, thanks to all the people who’ve inspired me. Happy New Year all.
FInishing the year with my album of the year.
Liking that early Savoy Brown stuff, Ewen.
Going through a HDD with tons of Savoy stuff on it.
I don't normally create playlists, but since I've had the 552/500 combination I've been enjoying jumping around my music collection which is ripped to the NS01 to try out loads of favourite tracks. Track to track volume shifts can be a bit of a problem, but it's such fun! Currently enjoying a couple of tracks with the gorgeous voice of Natalie Merchant.
And this version if Space Oddity gives the original a run for its money!
Happy New Year's Eve from Valhalla.We've been spinning the sound track to Baby Driver on original vinyl. A real salmagundi of music, with wide contrasts in recording quality, and styles. Mike overload is obvious in some, and although that appeals to some to get away from pristine clarity, it really jars my godly sens e of harmony. The various ambiences of the recording venues stand out really clearly as does the hopelessly arhythmic bass playing on Brubeck's Unsquare Dance. Maybe that's the point, the rhythm is anything but 4/4 square, the feeling is human and the playing all the more emotional. Lovely track. Great album.
With the year about to change, I find myself listening to The Cure - Greatest Hits
Good stuff from a formative time (for me). Happy New Year.
This and Tales of Us remain my favourite 'frapp.
“Spirt bird by Xavier Rudd”
