Walter Hendl Chicago Symphony - Prokofieff: Concerto No. 3 / MacDowell:Concerto No. 2/ Van Cliburn Product No: CAPC 2507 SA

Maybe Cliburn's Best Recording

5 Stars
Posted by Richard Schneider

An enlightened choice. One of the best engineered piano concerto recordings ever made, so much so that it even sounded great on cassette! It's like you're there in the best seat in the house. It's also one of Cliburn's best recordings, and an absolutely top drawer performance of the Prokofiev. The MacDowell I'm not so crazy about this piece, but Cliburn and Hendl make a great case for it, and the sound is of the same demonstration quality. Other ideal piano concerto recordings from this period include Beethoven 3 with Gary Graffman, Hendl/CSO, and the Brahms 2nd Piano Concerto with Sviatislaw Richter, Leinsdorf, and the CSO. I can hardly wait for this pre-order to be available. Don't let it take all year!

Sounds great, poor packaging

I was interested in what a half-speed master of this record would sound like as it's one of my favorites. Once I gave the record a good cleaning (plenty of dust and paper from the printed inner sleeve), I gave it a spin and the sound quality is there - sparkling highs and very extended soud- stage. What's odd is that the outer sleeve is oversized - hence it will not fit in the standard outer sleeves I use (2.5 mil Ultimate Outer from Sleeve City). What's with the odd size? Maybe because it was pressed in Czechoslovakia? It measures 12 3/4" square.

Lush!

Posted by Rudy (at Record Collector Guide)

I admit to not being a huge fan of Diana Krall's albums (which sometimes have a bit of sameness to them), but there was something magical about this record that I first heard on CD, and then SACD, many years ago. Was it Claus Ogerman's notoriously lush orchestrations? The understated backing music? The selection of torch songs? Krall's smokey late-night voice whispering in my ears? Whatever is in the secret sauce, I dug it then and now. And to hear it on well-pressed 45RPM vinyl is a real treat, being even more smooth and lush than the SACD. (Although the album in surround sound wraps the listener in a warm fuzzy blanket!) The only thing I question is this was pressed from presumably analog tapes, and I would have thought this was purely a digital recording. Not that it takes anything away from the sonics (this is a wonderful sounding release!), but makes me wonder about the source. Regardless, I'd grab this ORG pressing before it sells out if you are a fan of Diana Krall's.

What a great reissue, the quality, packaging and more important, the sounds are simply outstanding! The booklet is a nice plus with lyrics and cool photos from the recording studio. Highly recommended!


Patricia Barber - Modern Cool Product No: APRM 90761
Available: PreOrder
Category: 180 Gram Vinyl Record
Label: Premonition

VERY hot recording -- EXCELLENT customer service

4 Stars
Posted by Cal Liedtke

This Quality Records Pressing of Patricia Barber's MODERN COOL suffers from much of the same problems that the previous Mobil Fidelity Sound Lab vinyl re-issue succumbed to -- it is recorded VERY HOT. Barber's voice is quite sibilant which in my case was so distracting that I could not listen to the LP -- in the same way I had to shelve my MFSL pressing.

However, CUSTOMER SERVICE at Acoustic Sounds was OUTSTANDING! When I called to voice my displeasure I was treated with respect, understanding, and politeness. My issue with this title was resolved to my satisfaction with absolutely no push back.

My CUSTOMER SERVICE experience with Acoustic Sounds is a significant reason why I have purchased records from them in the past and will continue to buy from Acoustic Sounds in the future.

While your QRP pressing of MODERN COOL may be different than mine (I hope) be assured that great customer service will be there to help you.

Last: the MFSL sacd has no vocal sibilants.

Must have recording !

A must have recording for Patricia Barber fans. I gave it a "10" for performance and "10" for sound. Barber on vinyl is a whole different experience from the CD recording in every musically meaningful way.


Miles Davis Quintet - Live In Europe 1967 - The Bootleg Series Vol. 1 Product No: AMOV 421

Category: 180 Gram Vinyl Record
Label: Music On Vinyl

Pretty nice, but what about quality control?

4 Stars
Posted by plosin@gmail.com

The music is outstanding -- these sets have never sounded better. The booklet and notes is an LP-sized version of the CD booklet accompanying the 3-CD + 1 DVD set issued by Sony/BMG. Two of the five LPs in the set I received were defective (scratched or with other pressing defects), and one of the replacement discs has sleeve scuffs which, although they don't affect play, still make me wonder if anyone cares about quality control. The bottom line is: the music is highly recommended; the product is imperfect. For $30/disc, we deserve better.

Wow

Bjork's voice soar's especially in the song Unison. This song is perfect, that's about all I can think of, as to how to describe it. Of course McIntosh equipment and electrostatic speakers really bring out the best of her abilities. This is one of the only songs in recent memory that brings me to tears as her voice is so emotional and heart felt. I have both the CD and LP but I actaully think the CD sounds better. The album sounds good but sounds a bit soft, where as the CD is immediate and crisp. Usually I like albums more that CD's as being warmer and more emotional but I would say that the CD sounds better. Either way this one is highly recommended. Just my opinion....Lonnie


Kenny Burrell - The Cats Product No: AOJC 079
Available: PreOrder

Label: Original Jazz Classics

Great band

5 Stars
Posted by Bret Miller

Kenny Burrell sounds great on this, similar to the Coltrane and Burrell album of just thir names. Tommy Flanagan and others also swing. Good bop and good sound. The grooves are not pressed deeply, though, and I had a couple of mistracks untill I adjusted my tonearm a little. When the nice vinyl is all over priced, it is good to get a bargain for $10.
