Tortoise - it's all around you

One of the only bands doing anything exciting these days. This record is by far the most subtle of their catalogue, some people are calling it "boring", but for us audio geeks it is a feast. So many little audio treats! John McEntire is by far the most innovative engineer out there these days (in my opinion). Keying the cymbal comp with the high hat? Fucking genius! If you like clever studio trickery then check this shit out.


i need to get this record. "millions now living.." is a masterpiece musically/production wise (you can't really separate the two with this band).

the new Beauty Pill record is good. not as good as the ep and the last smart went crazy album, but better than most stuff out there.

not too knew, but Dead Meadow's last record is brilliant, and is the most unsmashed new record to come out in years (thanks to Greg Calbi).

of course, the real highlight this year is probably gonna be the new Mission of Burma record. i hear it's coming out on SACD too. can't wait!

Been pulling out old favorites to get my head around my new monitors. Not that many current releases unfortunately sound all that.
Roxy Music "Avalon" remastered
Toy Matinee "Toy Matinee" special edition remaster
Fiona Apple "The Pawn....."
Los Lobos "Kiko" and "This Time"
assorted old stuff I've done
Man, it's been fun to listen lately.

I don't buy to many cd's lately. Probably due to the lp archiving I do. Here are a list of some of my favs.

Dick Hyman/Mary Mayo-MoonGas
The title of this one says it all...Here is one of the greatest proto-futuristic space lounge records of all time...Theremin, Lowery Organ, tape splicing, fuzzed  for this one....period masterpiece...  


Mickey Baker-But Wild
On sabbatical from his new home in Paris, Baker returns to the USA for a short run in '62 to merge gritty blues based intensity with kitschy danceable surf-type arrangements for a period…..classic..indispenseable


Albert Collins-The Cool Sound Of Albert Collins
Texas truck driver and Telecaster slinger Collins started out on the highest of notes with a classic
first lp..This record smokes from start to finish with blasting runs and flurries of tasty notes backed by the beefiest funkiest horn section this side a Tuscaloosa....One of the 1960's greatest blues
records...PERIOD...


Pierre Cavalli-Sitting On My Guitar
Obscure European Guitar Master Cavalli created a masterpiece of diverse styles in this recording...culminating in jaunts into Bossa Nova, Psychedelia, Western Swing and Jazz... one is struck by not only the highly competetent technique but the ability to transform a lifetime of musical experiences into one very coherent work...Brilliant


Grassela Oliphant-The Grass Is Greener
One of the sleeper jazz recordings of the '60s..This session merges straight ahead jazz with some sass and wit and grooves so phat you can launch the Spanish Armada to the new world in less than a day(usually a 3 month trek).... Organist John Patton, Guitarman Grant Green and Session lead New Orleans drummer Oliphant are massive and then Clark Terry..whose done it all from Elington to Monk and BEYOND..is simply a marvel... unselfconscious sophistication and Pure FUN


SOOO many More.

I also don't buy many new albums.

I can only think of two that I have bought in the last 6 months that have impressed me:

White Stipes - Elephant,  beautifully produced and mastered

Vanessa Carlton - A Thousand Miles (single)

Neither of these is very recent. I tend to listen to old music and these are my current favorites:

Joni Mitchell - Blue
Tory Amos - Little Earthquakes
Leonard Cohen - Greatest Hits
Doors - LA Woman, DCC mastered by Steve Hoffman
Elvis - 24 Karat hits, DCC mastered by Steve Hoffman
Beatles - Rubber Soul
Pat Metheny/Charley Haden - Beyond The Missouri Sky
Frank Sinatra - Live at the Sands (Remastered)
Al Stewart - Year of the Cat
Dire Straits - On Every Street
Janis Ian - Between The Lines
Diana Krall - When I Look In Your Eyes
Crowded House - Woodface
Jackson Browne - The Pretender, DCC mastered by Steve Hoffman
Fleetwood Mac - Fleetwood Mac
Cat Stevens - tea For The Tillerman/teaser and the Firecat
Moody Blues - This Is The Moody Blues


All these are the original versions unless stated.

I could go on and list another twenty or thirty. Sorry if this is off topic.

Best Regards

Phoenix - Alphabetical.

The best album I've heard in years. French pop with a twist. Extremely bright songwriting, with nods to Todd Rundgren and Dr. Dre

Steely Dan - Katy Lied.

I listen to this album A LOT. Fantastic songs, incredible drumming and perfect production. Years of inspiration.

Shuggie Otis - Inspiration/Information

The guy who turned down the position as rhythm guitarist in The Rolling Stones.

Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy

I don't know who this other David C is, but we must both be old guys, as I like most of the same stuff.....

From one old guy to another, see if any of these push your buttons:

Don Mclean - Best Of
Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
Pink Floyd - The Wall
REM - Automatic For The People
John Lennon - Legend
Peter Gabriel - Us
Lou Reed - Transformer
Johny Cash - Wanted Man (best of)
Willie Nelson - Stardust
John Denver - An Evening With John Denver
Massive Attack - Protection
Dionne Warwick - Walk On By (best of)
Roy Orbison - Mystery Girl
The Beatles - (everything)
Frank Sinatra - September Of My Years

Now where did I put my teeth?

Best Regards

Nina Nastasia's "The Blackened Air" is one of my favorites, as is her newer release "Run to Ruin".  The last two Beck albums and "Talkie Walkie" by Air seem to be my most listened to albums.

Another exceptionally well produced record that is sadly overlooked is "Point" by Cornelius. This thing sounds fantastic no matter what you're listening on.
