Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo – Almanac
I have to concur!
You keep surprising me young man... first Kate Walsh, now this, Excellent
In that case...
Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo – Dear River
"In the winter I return"
Even better album IMO.
Accuphase E350 amp, Electrocompaniet EMC1UP CDP, Siltech 25th Classic anniversary 330I XLR Harbeth Super HL5 on Sound Anchor Quod ELS63 stands, Chord Odessey2 speaker cable. Grado SR60 headphones.
I just enjoyed it instantly. ( i assume you mean "Dear River" 2013) ok I'll give it a whirl
Got to say that Kate Walsh album sounds stunning. Superb recording.
I just wonder what it would sound like with one of those streamers with a CD in!
Sonos ZP80 - Leema Pulse MKII - PMC DB1i
ZP100 - Mordaunt Short MS 3.10
Play 5 Audioengine A2 Pioneer PDP436SXE
Oy oy! nice try... not as good as the EMC1UP I bet.
I really just want a dedicated Internet radio, but not a portable one.
BTW, A mate of mine prefers the Light and Dark album over the others too
I've been steadily working my way through this 50 disc set:
Mostly pretty standard repertoire but the performances are anything but and as a record of the development of one of the world's finest orchestras it is wonderful.
I've also been listening to many other discs including:
Pro-ject Genie RPM1.3/Ortofon 2M Red with cork mat (Soon) - Graham Slee 'The Bridge' Phono Stage - Pioneer A-30 - Dali Zensor 3. (+ Denon DCD720AE for CDs)
Gatecrashing -Living in a box
The Division Bell Pink Floyd
Musical fidelity M6i Roksan caspian M2 cdp Atc scm 40s Tellurium Q black speaker cable chord chamelian xlr graham slee novo sennheiser hd598
Ben Howard – Every Kingdom
"Keep your head up"
Brilliant! and great live.
Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band.
Kate Rusby – 20
"You belong to me"
"The Wild Goose"
A rare best of worth buying.
That looks nice. I'll have to give some of those a go if they're on Spotify.
I've been listening to one of Vivaldi's String Concertos today played by Giuliano Carmignola. I think that this might be one of his lesser known pieces but it sounds fabulous and I've just orded the CD from Amazon.

Sony NWZ-A847 64GB Walkman > Westone UM3x
For years I've loved Ashkenazy's recordings of the Rachmaninov Concertos with Previn, but today I've been listening to his earlier recording of the 3rd with Fistoulari conducting and they are even better. There is a fleetness to Ashkenazy's playing here which reminds me somewhat of certain aspects of Rachamninov's own playing. It is a much nicer sounding piano than on the later set as well - less of the slight aggressiveness of a modern Steinway and more warmth and depth to the sound.
Also, today Karajan's intense and beautiful recording of the string orchestra version of Verklarte Nacht (Schoenberg), and Blomstedt's reading of the Alpine Symphony (R.Strauss).
