If you like that, you should try and find the live version on the album 90125 - The Solos. The version of Changes on that is just epic.

This morning: Jamie xx – We're New Here
While still obviously compressed, the breadth of the sound on this is way better than either the MP3 that came free with it or the version on Spotify. Plus the Sleeve and 180g vinyl are top quality, no pops or crackles to be heard.

I unearthed these two old faves from the 80s:-
Paul Simon - Heart and Bones
Had forgotten about Ms Adu until another mag gave them a write up recently. Still sounds fab, and appears to be AAA, i.e. no digits anywhere, unlike Mr Simon's.
