Jackie Evancho. All I got to say is WOW!

She's a little too old for me though.

Yeah, I'm waiting for a newborn to come out of the womb singing opera. Then we'll know we've made it as a species.

Found something I'd been hunting for over a year--Faces "A Nod is as Good as a Wink to a Blind Horse."

First Faces with Rod. Ronnie Lane still gets 2 or 3 tracks as lead vocal. Steve Marriot had already gone on to form Humble Pie with the 17 yr. old Frampton.

Forgot how fun this was. Boy, they're a dirty sounding R & R outfit. You know, "dirty," like when sex used to include all five of your senses and a good chunk of the 6th.

It was remastered in 2001. Don't have another recording of it to compare, but I was surprised it was this good.

Also, after much postponement due to feeling ripped off, I bought the remastered "The Yes Album." It's not like their recordings weren't top shelf already. Are there new things to notice/appreciate? Yes. However, not $18 worth. At $8 used, definitely.

Also found a Yes album I was unaware of. Thought at first that it was just another compilation (they've got so many). No, it really is a sepearate album from 2001 called "Magnification." Don't know how it got by me. Getting to know it, but, so far, not at all disappointing.

Excellent, Bob! You know I have come to depend on you for listening inspiration.

I bought the "Best of Faces" a while back and like it well enough. Rod was really a force of nature in his heyday. Beck-Ola, baby. I still really enjoy the Ronnie Lane / Pete Townsend "Rough Mix" LP, too.

I have had a hard time warming up to the modern era Yes music, but perhaps will give it another go. Apart from "The Ladder", I don't find most of the new material from the last 25 years very compelling. I do have hope for the next album, as I really enjoyed the new lineup in concert a couple years ago.

I thought The Yes Album needed remastering.

I enjoyed some live Allman Brothers today.

Really. I was quite dissapointed by Close To The Edge. It sounds quite veiled to me: like there is a layer of detail missing. From what I have read, most of their stuff is not all that well recorded.

I owned that one on tape years ago. Great LP!

From what I have heard, some Picassos aren't that well painted.

Just listening to Moving Pictures from Rush. Getting ready for the big show in Vancouver this evening. I am not sure who is more excited; me or my 7 year old son attending his first big rock concert. Might as well start him off with one of the best.:)
