Evanescense covers the Bananarama classic. Well done actually. Her voice is still lovely.
For the past few weeks after taking full advantage of HDTT [High Definition Tape Transfers] recent 25% off sale, I have been positively thrilled at the latest batch 99% of which out of 23 titles are DSD Mastered in DVD~A 192/24 on DVD~Rs from 15 ips Open Reel Tapes [probably DJ copies from 2nd or 3rd generation MASTER TAPES].
All were under $7 as I opted to go NO Frills meaning no CD cases or Liner Notes .......
Since I'm a jazz buff, among the titles are: Ella [Fitzgerald] Sings Broadway, Ella Swings Brightly with Nelson Riddle, Ella Fitzgerald with [pianist] Ellis Larkin: Songs In A Mellow Mood, Sarah Vaughan: After Hours, Billy Eckstine & Quincy Jones at Basin Street [LIVE], Nancy Wilson [Jazz Singer] with the Cannonball Adderly Quintet, Andrew Hill: COMPULSION, BONGOS: Los Admiradores [Command Label: originally recorded on 35mm film], Cannonball Adderly with Bill Evans: Know What I Mean, Billy Holiday: Velvet Mood, Johnny Hartman/John Coltrane [IMO, sounds better than UMG's Stereo SACD], Bud Shank/Clare Fischer/Joe Pass: Brasamba,Gary Burton: Something's Coming, Chet Atkins in Hollywood,Dizzy Gillespie: Perceptions, Eric Dolphy: Last Date, Bill Evans: Interplay, Guitarist Joe Pass: Catch Me,Wes Montgomery: So Much Guitar and the Great cCoy Tyner Plays Ellington. All are STEREO save the Billy Holiday: Velvet Mood DVD~A.
Media Shipping for the entire batch was under $5 and IMO, probably sound better than a lot of those $18 downloads from HD Tracks.
