most of the other music I listen to is depressing.




Sometimes it's nice to put something on that just makes you smile. We had a thread a while back about guilty pleasures. . .

I agree with you about Regina Spektor. When I saw her on tv, I enjoyed her presence on stage as well as her music. I think she was a bit nervous, though. Seemed like she didn't know how the audience would react to her sound. Like I said, it was a few years ago right when "Soviet Kitsch" came out.

Listening to a performance of the complete Ravel Daphnis et Chloe which took place earlier Sunday evening at the BBC Proms. The concerts are available online for 7 days on the BBC Radio 3 "listen again" service .

Listening to Loreena McKennitt's "Live in Paris and Toronto", and none of the other recordings I've listened to on my Axioms have thrown a soundstage so wide or deep. Very impressive.

I'm as pleased as punch to know that after nearly a decade of silence, McKennit is releasing a new album, An Ancient Muse, this autumn. The death of her fiancee was tragic, and having such a gifted voice mute with grief for so long was a sad thing. I'm very glad that she seems to have manged to work past that loss.

I'm listening to the total annihilation sound track. It was composed by the same bloke who did the music for the Halo video game.

I'm going though a lot of my music on my current setup so that I can better appreciate the speakers.

Right now listening to Elvis "The number one hits" CD which really sounds different than I remember it through my RCA Victor 45-only record changer through my "tube amp and Silvertone full range speaker!" back in the 50s and early 60s.

......sounds better now!

Actually the music back then sounded pretty good on the minimal system(one speaker)that I had. After all these years I finally realized WHAT it was that I was listening to.

My older brother took "steel guitar" lessons in about '37. It was his GUITAR AMP!! I realized that fact today for the very first time!!

A guitar amp! Took me sixty years to make the connection. I last saw the thing in '62 when I went in the Navy and my younger brother GAVE ALL MY 45s TO MY NIECE!! .....as well as the amp! Now I know why! I was wondering why my younger brother gave my older brother the amp; now I know!!

My new system sounds better....it's in stereo!(I think I miss the tubes though)I also wouldn't mind being seventeen again either!
