Yazoo - In Your Room CD/DVD box set

View attachment 82712 View attachment 82713

The previous owner must have been a real superfan, one of the CD booklets appears to have been signed by the band and two concert tickets were tucked between the pages.
looking forward to your thoughts on this set 👍 tbh i feel they could have been more Surroundily adventuresome with the material..

Rickie Lee Jones LIVE IN STOCKHOLM [DVD/DD 5.1]


R.d87b8b6bba177c35e06e1c7935554617


"An absolute original live! When beatnik kitty cat Rickie Lee first blew minds in '79 with Chuck E.'s In Love, it was obvious that an artist of startling talent had arrived. As she evolved, straightened up, and became a mother, she wisely shed the theatrics and focused on her art. Taped last year in front of a crowd of adoring Swedes and beautifully directed by Ian McCrudden who bathes Jones in light and bright colors, this concert hasn't a frill in sight. The "little girl who's singing this song" still emotes with that singular conversational scat 'n' roll. She's a jazz singer really always has been. She performs originals from her astounding one-two shot eponymous debut and its follow-up Pirates, all the way through '09's Balm In Gilead. A fine guitarist and pianist, she's simply backed by bassist and drummer, both of whom sing, creating gorgeous three-part harmonies. At one point she becomes so wrapped up in her guys' delightful falsettos, she forgets the lyrics and lapses into giggles. Rickie Lee Jones clearly loves her job." - Michael Simmons, MOJO The Magazine September 2011 Review, 4 Stars (out of 5)

One of my MANY recent specials at ELUSIVE DISC ..... ONLY $4.99 delivered, sealed! Now it's $25! It was filmed in high def and the DD 5.1 is actually quite good.

RALPH~E's in LOVE ...all over again!

I don't know the material well at all, but my immediate impression from flicking through both discs is that there just isn't a lot of instrumentation to work with - most songs seem to have a drum machine, one or two synth parts, and a single lead vocal. The 5.1 mix places the drum machine and vocal upfront, with the synths mixed partially and/or entirely to the rear. Listening to the rears in isolation, the stereo image is very narrow (nearly mono) for much of the time. There are a couple of fun bits with vocal echoes and synths ping-ponging around too. It ain't Ultravox's Vienna, but - considering the limitations - it's pretty effective.
