    That Joe Sample, "Did You Feel That?" disc is a real treat. Love it.

    Latest CDs added to my pile? I found a great used place near Akron, OH:
    Mike Stern "Big Neighborhood" $7
    Howard Jones "Dream Into Action" $5
    Evan and Jaron $1

    The most recent LP's I bought were the MCA Half-speed pressing of "Olivia Newton-John: Physical" and a still-sealed copy of the first, self-titled, Starland Vocal Band album (I love every song on that album and wore out three 8-tracks listening to it as a kid). That's an album I really wish had had a quad release - it could have been incredible.

    Most recent CD's are the soundtrack albums for the movies "Lady Sings The Blues" and "Mame" - and oh boy, does the CD of "Mame" reveal the major limitations of Lucille Ball's voice - some tracks sound like they are made up of over 50 separate vocal takes and pieced together word-by-word. "Mame" was supposed to be released in 4-track stereo, but Lucy's vocal problems were even more apparent in stereo, so it received a mono theatrical release. It makes me wish that Warner would locate the 4-track stereo mix for the film "Auntie Mame" - it was one of the films that Jack Warner had the masters erased in order to re-use the mag tape, so they'd need to find a collector with a 4-track mag 35mm print in good condition.

    I just discovered that the soundtrack to the movie "The Hindenburg" was released on CD - in a limited run of 3000 a few years ago - and now goes for insanely high prices, which is a bummer.

    Spirit is in my top 5 bands! Years ahead of their time. If ya gotta own one, Time Circle is it. Great choice, Byrdman. A wonderful compilation! I believe it's OOP. I saw them live a few years before Randy met his untimely death. I got to meet Randy and Ed. Their opening act was spectacular: a local group galled The Griff Band. Mr. Griff plays like Jeff Beck! A magical evening.

    Disclord, I have that 1/2 speed master of Physical. It sounds great.

    Dr. Simple, it may be a while until I audition that Joe Sample disc. Still, I'm looking forward to it. If you have a DBX II decoder, I strongly suggest Ongaku Kai-Crusaders live in Japan on DBX LP. If ya gotta pay $100 for it, do it! The CD pales by comparison. Great sound & performance!

    Saw Spirit several times live, as well as the Staehly Brothers (Feedback) version. Great concerts all. 12 Dreams album should have been in surround - so I made my own.

    12 Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus is in my 10 favorite albums. I believe it would be possible to do a multi-channel mix of it. It would likely be a horriffic chore, since producer David Briggs did a huge assembly job to create it. It wasn't made easy, since the band was in the process of breaking up. Briggs had to tie all this disjoint stuff together with little hope of overdubs. The band washed their hands of it. Briggs did a magnificent job. Their magnum opus! BTW: Led Zeppelin cited both Spirit and Moby Grape as influences. The guitar intro on Stairway to Heaven is lifted from Spirit's 1st album!

    If you haven't heard the CBS expanded CD remaster of 12 Dreams, it features a "circus organ" intro on Mr. Skin. Same take, just an extended intro.

    Does anyone know what became of the Stahaely Brothers? After they left Spirit, I bought their 1973 "Sta-hay-ley" album. Concrete and Steel is worth the price of admission.

    Had a birthday recently and can never think of much I want besides CDs , DVD-As, SACDs or Blu-rays!

    Got these CDs:

    Pure Ella and The Best of Ella Fitzgerald - was watching one of those dance shows with the family and someone danced to a classic Ella song and I said get me some Ella for my birthday! Got two - fantastic.
    Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns - John Hiatt. Been a fan of his for a long time.
    Sky Full of Holes - Fountains of Wayne. Great powerpop, been awhile since their last one.
    Actor-caster - The Generationals. Makes me feel younger to get something from a newer artist every once in awhile.

    And, though not quite in this category, the Dr. Strangelove 45th anniversary Blu-ray. 'nuff said.

    Linda, by the way I've been a member for years and am still trying to get to 300 posts! Well done!

    Yes, the MCA Audiophile release of Physical is an excellent sounding LP - and on JVC's wonderfully quiet CD-4 vinyl - I just wish Physical had received a dbx II encoded LP release. The CX encoded LaserDisc of Physical sounds even better than the 1/2 speed mastered LP - it's one of the LD's made that, for the best sound, Pioneer used a separate 1/2 inch dbx Type-I encoded mag master synced to the 1-inch video tape, and it sounds just amazing. I finally found one of the digital sound LD releases of Physical from Japan (it never got re-released in digital here) for a decent price and am looking forward to comparing it to the analog CX LD. I wish the Physical video album would have received a DVD release - Universal did release all the videos from it on DVD, but not edited together so seamlessly like they are on the Physical program, or with the sound effects some of the videos had - and the sync between the audio and video isn't quite perfect on some of the videos. Since Physical was also an ABC TV prime time special, it had parts where Olivia chatted with the viewers and stuff, and I'd love to see a DVD release of the whole program that included the ABC stuff too.

    I adore my dbx LP's - until DTS CD's and DVD-Audio came along, I had never heard another source - not even CD - that matched the dbx LP's in their dynamic range and overall "power" - with dbx the music sounds effortless and like it could just keep getting louder and louder with no limitations, yet also be whisper quiet without a trace of noise. My dbx 128 and dbx 224 are, next to my Fosgate 101A, my most prized audio gear. It's too bad that dbx II wasn't selected for use on LaserDisc's - dbx certainly lobbied Pioneer, MCA and Philips for it, but CBS' CX noise reduction was not only substantially cheaper in royalties, but also completely compatible without decoding, which is something that dbx encoded recordings are NOT.

    I've been thinking about adding a dbx Sub-harmonic Synthesizer, like the dbx 120, to my system. But I've never heard one in action so I don't know how well they work.

    Did you ever sell dbx gear, Linda?

    the latest LP was Deodato-2. was found past sunday in the bunch of LPs on flea market and amazingly
    still in mint condition. albeit nowhere has quad mentioned in print, beside the cat.# in run out has SQ engraved.
    b.t.w. same i have with his first album. SQ marking only in run out also. seems like this was quite often practiced
    with quad LPs pressed in Canada in the past. at least i have bunch of such records.
    CDs? i don't buy them since the second half of 90th. last intentional purchase was 20-bit remaster of Ozzy which
    happend to be great disappointment. now CDs came into my pile only if they are part of the set of DVDA or layer on SACD.
    about year - year and half since i started collect quad, i went back to purchasing CDs if those has quad mixes.
    so far this mainly cheap used with classical repertoire, EMI, Angel and such

    "Did you ever sell dbx gear, Linda?" Yes, Pacific was a dbx dealer, as was a high-end dealer whose store I managed for a couple years. dbx II is terriffic! When the dbx rep gave me a promo of Dreamboat Annie, I had a 1/2 speed Nautilus of that title. I A/B'ed them at my store and I was immediately hooked.

    I'm less enthusiastic about their other processors etc. Too much "breathing" on 1bx, 2bx & 3bx. If you have something with a limited dynamic range, it enhances it. One evening, I borrowed a 3bx and auditioned it on my own high-end 2-ch system. Through a great pre-amp, 500W power amp and Ortofon MC cartridge, I could not get it to stop breathing on anything with a wide dynamic range, no matter how I adjusted it. I remember the Mofi 1/2 speed master of Hot August Night sounding especially atrocious. Even my guests that night, who knew nothing abut audio, recognized how stinko it sounded, even with persistent adjustment.

    I have a bunch - maybe 50 - dbx II LP's still at my parents house in Albuquerque and only a few here with me now. I've got to get my dad to box them up and send them to me - some of the dbx jazz titles are pressed on translucent red vinyl. Here, in addition to Heart, I have the Nautilus dbx pressing of Diana Ross: Diana and it's another stunner in the sound quality department, making the CD sound anemic. I need to make a un-decoded CD of it so I don't have to play the LP when I want to hear it.

    I use my dbx 128 to compress music heavily most of the time - my partner grew up buying K-Tel and Ronco compilation albums - K-Tel often got 22 songs on a single LP by using super-heavy compression, so he LOVES that bright, hard sound of very heavy compression - something that the dbx 128 reproduces quiet well when set in the Linear mode at a 4- or 5-to-1 compression ratio. I can barely stand to listen to it that way. When set at a mild 1.2-to-1 linear expansion ratio, the dbx 128 works really well at suppressing the background noise on old, non-CX LaserDisc's, like the DiscoVision titles, without many artifacts - it can make DiscoVision's stereo music titles like "Loretta Lynn in Concert" or the ABBA video's really listenable - it can't, however, fix Fleetwood Mac's awful "Tusk" album on DiscoVision though. It's also good for expanding those films on LaserDisc that had their sound transferred directly from the 35mm stereo optical tracks - it gives them a little more 'life' to the sound, but the key is to keep the expansion ratio low.

    I think your partner has confused "heavy compression" with heavy petting! lol!! "Heavy compression" is like having your head in a vice. No, not THAT head.

    Since I've gotten into surround music my CD purchases have been nil and non-existent. Several years ago I bought several Eva Cassidy CD's and don't even play them anymore. Still like the music though.

    Wow Linda, that's a great variety of music - something there for just about any occasion and mood.

    My recent acquisitions:
    Bill Nelson - Fantasmatron
    Sybarite5 - Disturb the Silence (excellent string quintet)
    Killing Joke - Live at Hammersmith Apollo 2010
    Kate Bush - Director's Cut
    Maria Taylor - Overlook (she's 1/2 of Azure Ray, one of my fave bands)
    The Feelies - Here Before
    Emmylou Harris - Hard Bargain
    Neil Young & The International Harvesters - A Treasure
    The Unthanks - Last (UK folk band...album has a superb version of King Crimson's "Starless" on it)
    Gillian Welch - The Harrow and the Harvest
    Memories of Machines - Warm Winter
    EMA - Past Like Martyred Saints (EMA=Erika M. Anderson...noisy power pop)

    Well, I just realized that a) there's no thread for "Latest DTS CD added to your pile" and b) there's no thread for Don Henley's "End of the Innocence" DTS CD.

    Anyway, I just won a copy on ebay for $20.50. I think that's a decent price anyway.

    Geez, the last disc I bought was 'The Essential Michael Jackson' Sony collection.

    Wow. Great sounding compilation.

    Dexter Romweber Duo-Is That You In The Blue?
    Bodeans-Indigo Dreams
    Elvis Costello- National Ransom
    Bon Iver-Bon Iver
    Alexi Murdoch- Towards The Sun
    Gregg Allman- Low Country Blues
    Buddy Miller's The Majestic Silver Strings
    Ray Lamontagne- Till The Sun Turns Black
    Be Yourself: A Tribute To Graham Nash's Songs For Beginners

    Had a couple other titles in my hands but put them down after my wife looked unhappy. I see the new John Hiatt on this list a couple of times and want to know if anyone bought the deluxe version with the Hi-Res tracks? If so did you compare to the cd? thanks, Scott

    I made a trip to Bowling Green recently and went to Finder's Records. They were having an LP sale, $5 off. So I picked up;

    Kansas - "Leftoverture" (180g)
    The Monkees (self titled)
    The Strawberry Alarm Clock - "Incense And Peppermints"
    Tedeschi Trucks Band - (debut -2 LP set, 180 g)

    Just went to Cleveland to see the Tedeschi Trucks Band, Saturday evening. What an awesome performance!
