sean: i am pleased that you enjoyed my "thank you." (BTW, sean's "small favor" was, to me, much larger; he burned-in my latest 6 meter run of tara "the one" ic's for 11 days on his mobie, which i think is equivelent to about 1000 hrs. or more of "system" burn-in.) fact is, i collect the variety of discs about which you inquire. many (most) are very hard to come by, unless you schmooze with them that produce them (usually at ces or the like). here are 4 others that are well worth a search:
Â Burmester, ÂVorfÃ¼rings-CD II (almost impossible to find ÂnewÂ ; they are never ÂsealedÂ). this one has three of the most incredibly-produced pieces from Âthe wallÂ iÂve ever heard, plus stevie ray vaughn, ricky lee jones, quincy jones and more super classical pieces;
Â Tannoy HiFi Series Sound Sampler. from diana krall to bonnie raitt and was, peter gabriel and the spectacular Âalbioni adagio in g minorÂ with gary carr (cello) and harmon lewis (pipe organ).
Â The Fi/Analouge Productions Sampler. done by chad kassem for the late, great(?) highend rag. mostly jazz and blues, as good as they get.
Â ÂDie RÃ¶hreÂ on the Tacet label. classical done with tubes only. the lp, not surprisingly, is even better.
hope you can find these and others I treasure.
