    Richard Thompson Band - Celtic Connections Live (Eagle Rock)
    Santana Greatest Hits - Live in Montreux (Eagle Rock)

    2 of the more recent released from Eagle Rock. I had high hopes for the Richard Thompson disc, and while the playing, as always is stellar, the whole affair left me slightly disappointed - not great, not bad but I doesn't bode well for repeated listens - at least until I've listened to it a few more times .

    I was a little leery of the Santana title because I have a few of his other Montreux titles and was not impressed. After listening to the first 2 tracks, the first, a free jazz, Albert Ayleresque squonkfest that was just plain awful, followed by a Hip Hop version AC/DC's "Back in Black" - not good - I was ready to fill out my Amazon Return request. Thankfully, the band kicked that bullshit to the side and started to PLAY - The band is smokin' and Santana is in fine form. There are one or 2 moments when you think he'll go on forever with one of his mystical musings but he keeps that to a minimum. His new wife , Cindy Blackman, plays drums on one track - she's adequate, but she's no Dennis Chambers. Her "solo" is a bit self indulgent, but it ends soon enough. Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi join the band for a few tracks and they are stellar players and voices. The sound is spectacular - virtually no crowd noise and a purposeful 5.1 DTS HD MA mix.

    Features 2 surround mixes - the theatrical film mix and the "studio remix" version - the studio surround mix is excellent (IMO) - surrounds are used effectively - one of my favorite BD titles!

    always liked his style. and everyone here gave the album good ratings.
    The divorce was my fault, I just couldn't get along with her boyfriends.

    I posted this elsewhere, but just picked up Gotan Project 3.0 Live - excellent live DTS HD MA 5.1 mix with many discrete elements - Tangotronica

    Also recently purchased the Richard Thompson "Celtic Connections" BD - LOVE his guitar playing - his singing voice not so much - still there is much to enjoy here - mix is standard Eagle fare - good not great.

    Duh! I posted this on 1/7/12. Obviously, I haven't seen/heard it yet. I buy too much stuff! Guess I have credit the next time I hit Rolling Stone Records for the one I bought on Saturday. Between having CRS (can't remember shit!) and owning so much stuff, it's not the first time I reacquired the exact same pressing. It won't be the last. In the near future, I should quit buying software altogether, since the 18,000+ titles I own will all seem new to me, due to memory loss.

    Although I've not been diagnosed with it, the great part of having Alzheimer's is that you're ALWAYS meeting new people. I had my Maternal Grandmother to 101! Because of Alzheimer's, I lost her bit by bit.

    watched this last night. on BD.
    never saw it before. and I was kicking myself for not doing this sooner.
    If only Bruce stayed in the back, it would have been perfect. I feel no one has the right to sing Roy's songs but Roy.
    I grew up with the haunting melodic strains of Roy's music. It was in my head at an early age, and no one can perform like he did.
    The world lost a valuable asset when he died.
    is there any more??

    Always has been. These days, it often takes me a few days or a week to get the new releases. It used to be that I would have them the day they were released, if not an advance copy before, sometimes with a white cover, 'cause the real one wasn't ready. Have several 1/2 speed masters like that. Elton John is another notorious collector. Clive Davis prepared a promo package for Elton the first time they met. Even though they were new releases, Elton already had them!

    I don't need to be gouged on EBay, cause I bought it for cheap when it was new. When I was in the hifi business, I had friends at several big record stores and many record labels around town. I'd give them deals on hifi, troubleshoot and wire their gear. They'd give me promos. I still get deals and promos, but not like that. Ah, those WERE the days!

    I would tell people that I don't do drugs, I shoot up with a phonograph needle. For thirty years, I've done it with a laser.
