Mustang Sally, but No Jeff Beck???

4 Stars
Posted by Anonymous

My favorite Buddy Guy album! The sound is great, but NO Jeff Beck on Mustang Sally until about 3:45 is heartbreaking :-( Overall, well worth the extra $$$ for Buddy "Live"! Would have been 5 STARS, but...now maybe 4.5

Amber Rubarth - Sessions From The 17th Ward Product No: CCRJ 356
Available: InStock
Category: CD
Label: Chesky

An Audiophile Reference Recording

5 Stars
Posted by Donald Scarinci

Amber Rubarth has matured as a singer/songwriter with her latest album. This amazing recording is what happens when a record producer is an artist himself who can recognize great talent and make it come alive in your living room. Chesky Records and Amber Rubarth are made for each other. Rubarth is the new great sound of New York City and this recording is an audiophile listening experience. "Sessions from the 17th Ward" has become my reference CD in this genre.

Available: InStock
Category: Gold CD
Label: Sony

Worth every penny...and then some

5 Stars
Posted by DWM

If people recall, this was a hot album when it was released. Many questioned Dan Foglelburg's motive for recording this type of album. But any fan of Dan's after listening once suddenly knew why. It was, and still is, a great collaboration. This is a gold CD and as those who own gold CD's know, these open up things to the ear that regular CD's do not seem to capture. The instrumentation is simply fantastic. The last two tracks are worth the cost alone, one being "The Power of Gold." I would like to see more of Dan Fogleburg's catalog released again in either DTS, SACD, SHM, or K2 mastering. This is a must have purchase for anyone who likes a nice easy-going listening CD. Simply fantastic.


Al Di Meola, John McLaughlin & Paco DeLucia - Friday Night In San Francisco Product No: CSON 9909 K2

STUNNING

5 Stars
Posted by Clive

I was lucky enough to obtain an audiophile LP cut of this recoding some years ago but heavy use has resulted in some surface noise. This quality CD takes the music to a new level in that there is no background sound and the depth and clarity of the music is outstanding compared to the LP. The treble is not bright but mellow so you can enjoy listening at high volume to gain the sense of being at a live performance.

Classic Hank Mobley

Posted by Roy

This is an awesome album and a great addition to anyone who has listened to Hank Mobley. Every song on this album is outstanding. A staple album to add to your Jazz collection and one you will play on a regular basis.


Horace Silver - The Cape Verdean Blues Product No: CBNA 0010
Available: InStock
Category: XRCD24 CD
Label: Audio Wave (Blue Note)

XRCD is outstanding

5 Stars
Posted by Rich

The sound quality and music are top notch. Alan Yoshida and the XRCD team produces the finest redbook CDs. If you like Song for My Father you will also like Cape Verdian Blues. As far as sound quality you can hear every instrument clearly with great separation. This is Horace Silver 60s sound at its best.


Janis Ian - Between The Lines Product No: CBOXG 3009-2
Available: LimitedStock
Category: Gold CD
Label: BoxStar

Stunning re-issue on Gold CD.

5 Stars
Posted by Clive

I imported this disc into the UK from Acustic Sounds because there was no supplier of this label within these shores. I have sought a quality recording of this Janis Ian disc for some time and what a delight. The voice is clear and very articulate. The backing music sits behind the voice and at no time is there any distortion or problems in the musical exchanges between voice and instruments. The sound is warm and natural with sufficient punch that creates a sense that you are enjoying a personal live recording. I will follow future re-issues from this label. Moreover, for those not able to locate dealers who can provide qualtiy recordings from such dynamic smaller re-issue companies locally I recommend Acustic Sounds as a relaible international supplier who obviously love providing good sounds from an amazing range of specialist companies.


Stevie Wonder - Fulfillingness' First Finale Product No: CAFZG 108
Available: LimitedStock
Category: Gold CD
Label: Audio Fidelity

Fulfillingness of Pleasure Principle - A Most Worthy Upgrade!

5 Stars
Posted by Adrian B.

I first heard this album, intently and in its entirety, when back in the 90's I borrowed the standard issue CD from a good friend of mine - on his highest recommendation no less. Even though the sound quality was nothing spectacular, the songs served as a hallmark of testimony to the incredible talent of Stevie Wonder. Happily, and, suffice to say, this Audio Fidelity HDCD is a definite sonic improvement! As well, the packaging of this limited edition, numbered CD is a very nice touch.

There may only be two better ways to experience this; being at THE concert, or viewing the concert at a friend's excellent home theater with HD video AND audio. I wasn't lucky enough to be at THE concert.

Fine Remaster

5 Stars
Posted by Terry H

I have alwways loved this alblum but always found the production a little thin and the Cd way too bright. This remaster deals with all these problems and lets this wonderful collection of songs by a great band shine on their own merits


Jennifer Warnes - Famous Blue Raincoat Product No: CIMX 8301
Available: LimitedStock
Category: Gold CD
Label: Impex

A sonic classic

5 Stars
Posted by Anonymous

I have spent time and money getting a system that I call Hi-Fi and finding good digital music is difficult as a result. So when you but a CD on to listen and when you find it difficult to take out of the CD player you know you have found one. Each track grows on you some slow so quicker but each a wonder for your ear to get lost in the journey of listening.

Diana Krall - All For You: A Dedication To The Nat King Cole Trio Product No: CJVC 360
Available: InStock
Category: XRCD24 CD
Label: JVC

Absolute must-have!

5 Stars
Posted by Steve R.

A ubiquitous audiophile demo for many years, this CD has been transformed into an absolute powerhouse of a recording. It's the original Verve master on STEROIDS. Sounds like she's right there in front of you; warmth, air, and presence in spades. If this Diana Krall selection is one of your faves from her catalog, then it's simply a no-brainer. Buy it, you won't regret it!


Otis Spann - Good Morning Mr. Blues Product No: CAPR 3016
Available: LimitedStock
Category: CD
Label: Analogue Productions Revival

One of the best Blues albums... period.

5 Stars
Posted by Joe Jacobs

I find I keep going back to this one over and over every few months and it never wears out when it comes to being solidly entertaining.

Here is a case where HDCD really shows off. When you put a little energy in the speakers, it's like Mr. Spann is right there in your living room. When he pounds his foot on the floor keeping time, you feel it. Man, is it realistic! And that's the idea in better quality audio reproduction, isn't it? To FEEL the artist in a more personal way than just simply hearing the music?

This disc delivers that experience like very few I own. Performance and sonics both rate 5 Stars minimum.

The style of the music is that smooth, Bluesy, rhythmic driving beat that can be the feature instrument or drive a band along with it. When you listen to Muddy Waters on an electric guitar, it's pretty easy to understand why he liked Otis Spann as his piano player.

Throw this one on, turn it up and I'm betting that you'll like Mr. Spann as your piano player,too...


Michael Stearns & Friends - The Lost World Product No: CLIM 037
Available: InStock
Category: DXD
Label: Lasting Impression Music

The Jungle Is Alive

5 Stars
Posted by Terry F

I first became aware of Michael Stearns’ The Lost World from HP’s Workshop in TAS 179. This is one of HP’s showcase CDs. However this CD is the second generation 24bit DXD version. It is everything that the first CD had and more. It has an expansive soundstage with a variety of detailed sounds. The original is also discussed in the August 2010 issue of TAS (page 110). I would have given the original five stars so this one goes beyond the limit.


The Beatles - Let it Be Product No: CCAP 82472
Available: InStock
Category: CD
Label: Capitol

Complete Disappointment

1 Stars
Posted by John P.M.

Wow, I tried this after buying another of the new re-masters that wasnt that bad, but still not as good as some of the better vinyl pressings. What a dull, lifeless, piece of garbage. I guess if I want to complete my Beatles collection Ill have to invest in a good vinyl copy. This is the worst Ive ever heard The Beatles sound!
