Can someone recommend a few Joni Michell albums?
"Hissing of Summer Lawns", "Don Juan's Reckless Daughter", and "Court and Spark". "Miles of Aisles" (a live album that is essentially an overview of her earlier work). I recommend them all very highly. She also made an appearance on a Herbie Hanco... 
Pre-amp questions for SCD-1 & EMC-1
I use a Sim Audio Moon P-5 preamp with my EMC-1, and I love it. The Sim has only one set of XLR inputs, however, so you won't be able to use the balanced inputs on one of your CDPs. By the way, why are you using both an EMC-1 and an SCD-1?

"Birks Works" is a two-CD set of his work in larger bands. Reasonably well recorded and great performances.

Best Female Rock Group
I think The Pretenders qualify, if only because I think Chrissy Hynde rules. I'm a little embarrassed I didn't include her.

Your favorite three Rolling Stones songs?
Good thread. Hard to pick just three, and I suspect the three I would pick depends on the day I pick them. Today the top three are (in no particular order):1. Don't Know Why (the only listenable thing on Metamorphosis)2. Memory Motel 3. Soul Survi...
