All right then here's a few more




My wife is so upset with me. We were supposed to go over-seas for a summer vacation with the little ones. Instead, I blew our vacation budget on Axioms, Samsung, CDs...and a few other "must-haves". And JohnK's posts aren't helping the situation.

When JohnK is posting links to all these great CDs (the recommendations I have purchased ARE top notch recordings) does anyone else think about the huge pile of BAD classical recordings he must have in the basement somewhere ?

Even JohnK could not find all those winners with research alone; he MUST have bought some turkeys along the way

This is too funny, I like you already MoJo. Maybe we can start a collection to get your wife and kiddies over to Europe? Nah, its just full of Old buildings and foreigners anyway

I love threads like this; so many great ideas and suggestions.

I notice you like hard rock. If you want to see (hear) how good Ian is at engineering loudspeakers, I highly recommend track 5 (“Beating Around the Bush”) from AC/DC's Highway to Hell CD. A sub-woofer really helps with this one, but not required.

A detached, single family home is also recommended.

Hey all, I am going to add some DVD concerts that have excellent SQ. Here are a few of my favs:

Eagles HFO...ok, you all know that one.

Eagles Farewell One Tour...Top notch DTS sound and almost HD video.

UB 40...Live from Holland. Stereo track sounds incredible...Got bass?..this is sick.

Doobie Brothers, "Live from Wolf Trap" DD sounds the best to me, almost HD video,,,awesome!

Boz Scaggs, Live on DVD, DTS track is stunning, this is HD as far as video goes..10/10. Great content too, did you know this is a blues man? I didn't.

Phil Collins Farewell tour "live from Paris"...great DTS and video, 2 discs, well done.

next i will post some Cd's

Chris

John, your listing of these classical CD's has again renewed my interest and love for this music. Thank you! I have slowly been adding to my classical collection over the years but as of late I find myself leaning more and more in that direction. There is very little new music these days that peaks my interest and even less still that has all aspects of quality, (music, engineering, musicianship, originality etc)....not to mention paying $15-20 for a CD. The Tower Records site is also nice. Being able to preview a wide variety of classical is rare on the net. Between your list and links and suggestions I had to stop at about 20 CD's! That ought to keep me listening for a while anyway.

Yeah John, I have about a thousand classical CDs(which is by no means an extremely large collection)and there are a few that I wish that I didn't have. It's very few however, and I've tried to listen before buying and getting at least two professional reviews first. Needless to say, I don't recommend anything here that I don't personally like and think would appeal to most listeners. Of course, conductors have a degree of subjectivity in their performances although they generally have the same score in front of them, and some listeners won't care for their slant, but one of the nice things about this great music is that there are often dozens of choices for each work available.

Mo, women generally love to save money at a good sale, so tell her that at these prices they're almost giving this great music away. Although your wife won't be enjoying April in Paris, maybe some Ravel right at home will do(or maybe not)?
