I have one of the MLP box sets and the sound quality is top notch as has always been the case with those recordings.

All Mapleshade recordings are minimally miced in real rooms. See at their site. You can play sample tracks. They have a couple of sampler CDs that give a taste of what their sound is. Try "13 Shades of Blue" Blues, Bluegrass and Jazz/blues. The sound is incredible! http://shop.mapleshadestore.com/Recordings_c_11.html
And yes That Nitty Gritty Dirt Band album is incredible. Have you seen the documentary of it? A lot of fun to watch. That’s how I first heard about it. Was on Netfix I believe.
Bsmg- I have been listening to Al DiMeola, John McLaughlin, and Paco DeLucia "Friday Night in San Francisco" for years. It is a great album by guitar masters and something like that is exactly what I am trying to find. The problem is it is a minefield to find the right recording like that. Years later they came out with a similar album "The guitar Trio". Same excellent musicians and music......But the imaging was terrible. On my system you have a trio playing but they are all playing from inside the speakers. There are a few sections where imaging was good, they are playing from the center, and you could tell where they were standing. But for most of the album it was either far right or far left. I could only listen to it a couple of times then quit.
Sonicjoy- I will have to look up the documentary on "Will the circle be Unbroken". I was a kid when the Circle album came out and my parents took us to a number of bluegrass festivals back then. Luckily i got to see many of the artists. Watching Earl Scruggs and Doc Watson play sure was a treat.
Thanks to everyone.......I will definitely have to look up all of these record labels.
