Wow. "Give, Get, Take and Have" by Curtis Mayfield. . . I missed this lp when it was out. (I'm listening to the cd it shares with another Curtis Mayfield lp). It's amazing. Sounds to me as if Prince might have studied this one over and over.

Just a great bunch of groovy arrangements and performances.

Ok, so not exactly a music disc, but a disc "about" music Smiley

Paul McCartney Really Is Dead: The Last Testament of George Harrison?

And the legend IS STILL GOING!  Lots of fun really!


I remember being really fascinated by this story when I was a kid, and this film goes into EXTENSIVE detail about every clue you have heard of and then some!

This is released tomorrow, though individual SACDs are already available:


Note the description of some of the engineering & remastering:
Quote:
The surround sound program on the Doors SACDs comes from the original 96K, 24-bit files mixed and mastered by Bruce Botnick for the DVD Audio Doors/Perception release. Those mixes were made from the original one-inch, eight track, 15 i.p.s. analog master tapes. For the SACDs, the mixes were then up-sampled without filters to DSD using the Weiss Saracon format converter and authored by Gus Skinas at the Super Audio Center.
A truly authentic reissue project, the masters were recorded on tube equipment, and the tape machine used for the transfer of these releases is a tube machine, as is the cutting system. Tubes baby!

Tubes baby! I think that's Analog Productions mantra.

I'm not big enough of a Doors fan to go for this, too rich for my blood! And the multi-channel is wasted on me.

I think those tubes make a difference. I understand on the multi-channel; you're either in that game or not, and obviously, I am in it. FWIW, I am not ordering the box set, just 2-3 individual discs. The pricing on the numbered box set is silly.

However, I did buy the limited edition, numbered box set for Creedence, and the AP discs in stereo are just night and day different from any other Creedence media, including the pretty good K2 discs.

Oh I'm sure they sound great. I'm not much of a CCR guy either, so the K2s are good enough for me (haven't spun one in years).

Right now


Been too long since I played some Lateef. I think I may have to start buying the Impulse lps.

Sorry for the big picture. This 'seventies two lp reissue doesn't feature the best mastering by any means, but the music is great and the sound does really swing hard.

A little flashbackin' to the 80s. I saw these guys in a club in Northeast Ohio that could not have held more than 200 people, right before this album hit:

A pretty interesting lp that has amazing sound, not audiophile but still some fascinating berimbau and other percussion.

Produced by Herbie Hancock. I love Airto Moreira, when I first heard him on Miles Davis albums in the early 'seventies I knew I'd buy almost anything he appeared on. His own releases are something even further else!
