I'm less intrigued with this one. Insurgentes I think is BRILIANT, the others since I'm not as enthused with. I keep hoping for another like Insurgentes.

I agree with the ranking. Insurgentes is in another class. On first listen, Raven seems a bit forced, not contrived, but forced. The BluRay audio quality is excellent though, and some of the individual instrument work is very impressive.

The good thing is Wilson is really into this stuff, and he (in this case in tandem with Allan Parson!) makes these awesome recordings.

He loves the 'seventies prog stuff the way that I love the jazz of the second half of the 'fifties and early 'sixties. And that makes sense to me, we both were exposed to that music as kids, about the same age. I just am not that big a fan of 'seventies prog, was at the time, but don't need to hear it sort of coutnerfeited now.

He was a character! But a great trumpeter.

Right now: Another favorite player who won't win any beauty prizes. . . .

This may be the definitive Fillmore East; sounds great, though I need to do a little more listening against the MFSL:

Looking forward to the new Hendrix, now on order. 180gm   Cool

Meanwhile this one must have been recorded for tube playback.

Yes, I can remember how happy I was when Nine to Midnight was released back in the 'seventies!

Right now

Wow, Lon and PR, thanks for turning me onto Steven Wilson's "Insurgentes" ... absolutely digging it!  Some of it reminds me of the Liverpool band Clinic.

Glad you're digging it! Great stuff!

Got some great lps in the mail. Spun John Coltrane's "Coltrane's Sound," and now am listening to the frist record of this three lp set which came sealed:
