Hymns to the Silence is a double album masterpiece by Van that may have been missed by a lot of folks.

A couple of the stand out tracks includes one called Village Idiot; which is very personal to me. I once knew someone similar to the person this song describes. Extremely sad, but uplifting at the same time.

Listening now to this 2 disc Greatest Hits CD of Mike + The Mechanics-Out Of The Blue, some new tracks, plus a remix or two. All these songs are remixes and sound slightly different with little additions but the core of the songs are the same.

Listening now to brand new Import CD from CDJapan, stereo. Live Truth 1968, Jeff Beck Group. Tracks 1-6 from Fillmore West July 24 1968 and Tracks 7-13 from Lu Anne's Club, Dallas July 17 1968. Being a all Jeff Beck freak of course I had to get this. I would classify this as a historical recording, but consider the source and time you can't expect much. Super stereo to the point there is no phantom center, kind of weird, Rod Stewart and Mickey Walter (drums) and Ron Wood (bass) left speaker and Guitar right speaker, pretty weird, even when audience claps sound comes out of the two speakers with nothing in the middle, again, cool but weird to listen to. Fidelity is actually pretty good, not muddy sounding, pretty clear sounding. Glad I have it.

Odd stereo mix per your observation, but I’m also a massive Jeff Beck aficionado and can forgive some audio mix ‘mistakes’ coming from this incarnation of Jeff’s first band.

First ever listen to Tangerine Dream's
Phaedra

Although stereo, I'm giving it a gentle up mix via my Marantz's Dolby Surround.

Got it off Amazon for a fiver.

This one:

Really wish I could justify the new box set, but £123 is too much.

I was and am a Faust, Can plus Kraftwerk listener and latterly Schiller.
For some strange reason never got into Tangerine Dream... :unsure:
