Yeah, I know an old audio guru that is convinced that wire recording is the only true "pure" way to capture sound.

Yeah, Ken; I can't bear to part with my Edison wax cylinders, especially after paying $10,000 for the custom-made "high-end" player for them. Nothing beats that all-analog "warmth" in the sound.

Bob, you won't have any more "shatty" classical CDs if you simply get the ones that I've suggested here.

I only listen to post-WWII Russian avant-garde pieces for string quartets. Watchya got?

Remember when DGG was almost always a sure thing? I was always partial to totalitarian recording engineers.

With firepower like this, Adrian, it'll be nearly impossible for you to be out-punned.

OK...I finally got to sit down and listen without interruption (spouse)....after about 5 vocals, I got up and googled "Benny Goodman female vocal" and up popped Peggy Lee. I know some may say I am a babe in the woods on this but........Don't get much better than her sultry vocals with the jazz sound....

Bob, unless Shostakovich(nos. 3-15)is "avant-garde", you got me beat.
