Allman Brothers, Live at the Fillmore East.

I'm always listening to it ...

Duane and Gregg back together again.

RIP Gregg :-(

Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - 50th Anniversary Remix

OH MY GOODNESS :cool: :cool: :cool: :cool: :cool:

We took delivery of the 50th Anniversary Stereo remix by Giles Martin yesterday. It's AMAZING. I LOVE IT.

If, like me, you like the Beatles, but had always thought Sgt Pepper was pretty meh as an album - clever, yes, milestone, yes, etc etc ... but utterly boring and wimpy as hell - then you owe it to yourself to give this remix a little go...

Sgt Pepper is now a rock album!

I actually can't wait to get home to listen to it again now... I've never felt like that over this album (I've owned the 1987 CD of the 1967 stereo mix since the early 90s, I've listened to it 2 or 3 times tops, compared to 100s for Revolver etc)


Warning, though, if you have fragile ear-drums(!) - the internet audiophile opinion seems split, with many up in arms saying "my ears bleed! It's too loud... I HATE it". Yes, all the instruments are compressed in the mix (like what the beatles used to do anyway!! DUH!) - everything louder than everything else (and sounds SO good for it in my opinion) - and the CD version has some extra limiting on it, allegedly, to make it louder...

I just ordered the Sgt Pepper Special Edition yesterday, so this has me more interested than I already was :)

I would love to have gotten the DVD-Audio/Blu-Ray version, but it's near 200!!!

In a wee update to my post about the Sgt. Pepper Blu-ray edition, it had a sudden price drop to 60! so I ordered it.  I believe it arrived at my house today :)  Looking forward to hearing the 96Khz 24bit version

Children of Bodom - Follow The Reaper


Classic album!

I have been listening to two recently-discovered bands, Puppet Show and Crucible. Very mid-90s neo-prog.

I always come back to Priest. They are really my favourite band.

I don't know much about Ghost, but I saw the video for Rats.  Some funky moves in there!  :)

Yes, those funky moves were quite a surprise!

I think Ghost have some great songs. I won't stand by everything they do, but I like them alot.

In particular, the first album is the best, much less commercial.
