what was the last cd you bought?

Cross referencing the thread about hifi magazines. The CD was referred to as used in a review and I had not heard of Josefine Cronholm. A quick search of youtube and it sounded interesting. A second hand copy took two weeks to arrive.

A search of the forum and I could not find her name, but about the same time images started appearing in the Scottish forum.

Why am I listening, it's pleasant, comfortable, not challenging. It will get played again but probably not in my "top ten"

I'm cheating because it was bought for me but it was Steve Winwood  - Greatest Hits Live.Not the greatest title  but certainly some of his greatest music culled from different concerts over the last few years.Well recorded and does not suffer from loudness issues imho

The top album was purchased direct from The Hoax's website and incidentally is the last available album to buy as all the others have sold out. The bottom album was from the river. 

Good spot Steve, I have now picked up the Big City Blues vinyl direct from their site.

Having bought this on vinyl I found the copy I had had a defect on side two. There was a visible change of texture on the surface of the vinyl which produced a sort of hash on every revolution, particularly noticeable in quiet passages and between tracks. I cannot tolerate this, so the album was returned and the CD ordered instead. Not only is it ÂŁ5.50 cheaper, but it also comes with a live DVD too. Replay via the NDS sounds pretty good too.

Just arrived in the post. 

You're in for a treat, they sound really good, and the streamed rips are every bit as good as the original CDs. 

I’m still not able to understand why a perfect rip from 2 different pressings of the same master can sound different, but listening tells me that these are obviously better than my 1990 Page masters. I’ve listened to 4 albums tonight for the sheer joy of the music. And the attention to detail on the sleeves and box is incredible, the physical set is a wonderful object in its own right. Thanks to Kevin-W, Dave Marshall and Stevee-S, and anyone else who mentioned it, an awesome purchase. 

And about the music, if you set out to build the perfect hard rock band, start with 3 master instrumentalists, a drummer who can kick hard, play jazz lines, set the tone or follow it, be funky, heavy or anything you need, a bass player who will lead, follow, play keyboards, mandolin, wind, and set any tone you,like, a guitarist who can play sensitive acoustic, hard rock electric, innovate bowed styles, all three able to learn from any music from Indian, African, jazz, blues and incorporate the styles, and also take out over each others roles to give someone else freedom to play. Add a singer who can croon wail, belt, and act as  an instrument. Add the ability to write great songs, and you have a very small list of bands.
