For electric blues fans:

Ronnie Earl/Duke Robillard - the Duke meets the Earl

This is a gem recorded by Stony Plain Records in Alberta -

http://www.stonyplainrecords.com/Web/home.asp

Excellently recorded with rich, full sound. Mostly instrumental guitar work by two masters with some wonderful vocals. It has 72 minutes of material with long, long tracks ranging from 4:25 up to 15:53 minutes.

No 3 minute commercial stuff here, the way that blues should be....

EMI has recompiled select items from its extensive catalog of Debussy performances into an outstanding bargain of a 2-disc set. Included are performances acclaimed as among the best available, e.g., Karajan's very sensuous Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun and Giulini's La Mer and Nocturnes. 2 1/2 hours of gorgeous French impressionism available from Amazon sellers here for remarkably low prices about $4 up.

Albeniz's epic masterpiece "Iberia", which is said by pianists to be fiendishly difficult to play in spots, is my favorite work for solo piano in the entire classical catalog. The intricate rhythms he poured out in tribute to his native land are wonderfully realized in Jean-Francois Heisser's performance which is now available at a bargain price(about $7.30 plus about $1.95 shipping), from my favorite UK dealer, MDT . This is a special clearance sale(ordinarily this disc is around $20)in limited quantities, so if you're interested, don't delay.


It's also available from several Amazon sellers here for around $16. This is the same recording which was previously on Erato, and is shown here with some Amazon customer reviews.

Dang. Ordered but long term back ordered. MDT sent me an email today saying they cancelled my order because they could not provide the disc. My loss.

Well, when I mentioned "limited quantities", I didn't expect that the limit would be zero! Seriously though, MDT is a reputable outfit which I've dealt with several times with complete satisfaction. Although it's disappointing, maybe it's not too surprising that they have no more at that offer price.

Nevertheless, the music and performance are indeed stunning, and I'd suggest considering the Amazon sellers for about $16 mentioned above.

For those of you who enjoy organ music and who have the subwoofer to handle it, the album Poulenc: Organ Concerto; Widor: Symphony No. 5; Guilmant: Symphony No. 1 played by Ian Tracey (organ) and the BBC Philharmonic at Liverpool Cathedral (Chandos 9271), is a real treat.

The organ at Liverpool is huge (the largest in the UK with more than 9,700 pipes including a 64' pedal). The recording is well done given the challenges of combining an organ and orchestra in a large reverberant cathedral.

If you want to give your system, especially the subwoofer, a good workout, this is the CD to try.
