Mark:

My moniker comes from the fact that I am a retired Canadian Military pilot. While I flew jets in NORAD when I was a young buck during the Cold War, most of my 36 career was spent flying Search & Rescue choppers. Over the years I was based from Gander Newfoundland, through Trenton Ontario, to Edmonton Alberta & finally to Comox, BC where I finally retired in 2002.

We flew a small fleet of the venerable Boeing CH113/A tandem rotor machine from the 1960's that we named the 'Labrador'. Hence, I'm an Ex Labrador Driver. The US version - H-46 - can still be seen on the news supporting operations around the world as well as in heli-logging in steep terrain. Certainly a tough old bird...

Hi,
Seeking stunning recordings ? You want to demo and/or experience multi-channel music in a phenomenal fashion your answer is
AIX RECORDS

Their "Stage" mode (7.1) is incredible and the quality of the recording absolutely unbelievable.

The following gives you an idea of what can and should be done for multi-channel recording.
AIX Records BD HD Sampler IV

Brent,
Yes, they have now added Blu-ray with 7.1 Dolby TrueHD. They are out of this world.

French composer and music critic Paul Dukas saved his most severe criticism for his own work, to the extent that before his death he destroyed nearly all of his compositions. He might have been almost forgotten had it not been for Mickey Mouse, prancing about a few years later in Disney's Fantasia to his music for The Sorcerer's Apprentice.

The small amount of music which survived is exceptional and most of it can be enjoyed on one well-filled disc. In addition to The Sorcerer's Apprentice and his lone surviving symphony, the highlight is the majestic brass fanfare followed by the beautiful and exotic melodies of La Peri. This very well-played and recorded collection is available dirt-cheap for a few dollars from several sellers here on Amazon(Amazon samples are incorrect).

JC, John, Do you guys know of any Blu-Ray/HD Lenny Kravitz disks?

Or do you know of a place to recommend that would have similar artists with a high quality recordings?

Not Kravitz, but obviously one of his major influences and also while not Bluray, I was Very pleasantly surprised at the excellent sound quality of Jimi Hendrix - Live at Woodstock Not just because it was recorded in tech from the year I was born but it is actually great sound vs. even most modern outdoor concert videos.

In BD, I'd also be interested to know if anyone has The Jimi Hendrix Experience- Live at Monteray in the Bluray version and could say that it might be an improvement over the DVD.
