Johnny Hartman - The Voice That Is!

Love his rich, deep and mellow voice.
Beautifully recorded with interesting sounds: English horn, flute, marimba and lots of percussion.

Mmm. That's an album I'd love to hear mixed for surround. (Along with Jazz, Bop Til You Drop, Borderline, Get Rhythm, Chavez Ravine...)

He's got a new one coming, with Taj Mahal, doing tunes by Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee. Designed to look like an old Folkways album:

Edit: here's a nicely done "making of" video:

Carly Simon - Hotcakes

Have her first four Elektra albums and a couple of the Arista’s. Like this one the best, great collection of songs & lyrics, great feel.
Really nice sound too.
Wish MoFi had carried on with more of her albums.
I don't have Hotcakes, but I do have the MOFI SACD's of Anticipation, Carly Simon and No Secrets.
All four are still available for purchase MOFI CARLY SIMON SACD

I also skipped No Secrets 2ch SACD. Already bought it on LP, Q8, CD-4, CD & DVD-A. My favorite is the DVD-A. My Husband's fave is the CD-4. He likes the big cover.

I bought the other 3 2ch MoFi SACD's. Every time I buy a 2ch SACD that I have in Quad, it pains me. I thought all of the SACD's sounded good.

I wouldn't have bought them or their equivalent CD's without a good price. $19 for SACD's and $3 used for the CD's. I bought the used CD's soon after they were released.

To me this doesn't bode well for more CS on SACD. I'd rebuy Playing Possum, Another Passenger and Boys in the Trees on SACD.

listening lately:

Love Over Gold - Dire Straits MoFi SACD

Gator Strut - Mike Marshall MoFi SACD w/Bela Fleck, Jerry Douglas, Tony Rice, David Grisman, Rob Wasserman, Darol Anger & more


Best of Santana HK/Europe SACD


Miles Ahead - Miles Davis Japan SACD original mono mix & cover

Los Lobos - Kiko

One of their better albums IMO.
Sounds nice, though the regular CD is no slouch. I’m not convinced this one sounds much better.
Maybe I’ll compare them side by side one of these days.
One of my favorite all-time albums. And I completely agree, the original cd sounds so good the SACD sounds pretty much the same to me.
