Shawn Phillips is my guru, a spiritual guide if you will. After listening to this album I am always infused with energy and good will and feel I have the strength to carry on no matter what is pulling me down in life. Shawn is my candidate for the most overlooked / underrated musician of our time, he’s an extremely fine musician and vocalist with an incredible vocal range that will blow your mind.

Over the years Mr. Phillips has worked with Peter Robinson quite a bit, you might know him from Quatermass (the band). Peter Robinson shines quite a bit on Rumplestiltskin's Resolve, another Quatermass alum (John Gustafson on bass) shows up on the “Spiteful” track.

As an introduction to the music of the Brazilian composer Villa-Lobos, you can't really do better than this little masterwork which is the toccata from his Bachiana Brasileira No. 2. It was inspired by a ride that Villa-Lobos took in 1931 on just such a train that was transporting berry-pickers and farm laborers between villages…

A Bert Whyte recording of Maestro Stokowski conducting the Houston Symphony at the Houston Civic Center in 1959. Le Poeme d’extase is a big, one movement work in sonata form that combines the elements of a symphony and a tone poem. The work highlights Scriabin’s development and exploitation of new harmonic ideas including chord structures constructed on intervals of a fourth instead of a third. Coupled on this release is another Stokowski/Houston performance of Amirov’s “Azerbaijan Mugan” recorded on March 16th, 1959 at the Houston Civic Center. Amirov’s composition, masterfully performed by Stokowski and the Houston, exhibits the complicated system of mode scales and fixed melodic patterns characteristic of music of the East.

Oh, the 80's, how I miss 'em!!!
Here is one of the masterpieces of Pop from the 1980's, orchestrated by none other than Mr. Leo himself, Roland Orzabal, and a crew of top rate musicians, among them the incredible Oletta Adams.
Reportedly costing about 1 million GBP to make at the time, it is one of the few albums that actually sounds like a million bucks!!!!
Also featuring the dubious honor of having up to five 24 track machines synched together to get 100+ separate tracks (let's not even talk about the patch bay!!!), the production here is beyond stellar.
Mixed by David Bascombe in "SuperBascombevision" (or something like that) , there are also mixes by Bob Clearmountain("Woman In chains") that define "State of the Art Recording".
When I got his LP , it was in NM visually, but it was the clickiest thing ever. Fortunately, ClickRepair came to the rescue.
The "sheen" that permeates this LP is nowhere to be found on any CD version, so , if you TRULY want to listen to this album for the FIRST TIME EVER, as it was supposed to have sounded originally, download and listen to this sonic marvel!

This LP needs no introduction. If you're looking into this,you already know the deal.
Why another rip? I do not intend to demean the other member's rip of the same LP at the same resolution.
Here is the difference : this LP was recorded using a LINEAR TRACKING TURNTABLE as opposed to a pivot arm one.
This reduces inner groove distortion considerably.
I also use a very decent good elliptical stylus, the Ortofon OM20.
I hope you enjoy the difference.

Santana-Caravanserai QUADRAPHONIC MIX on DVD-A 96/24 ONLY

Santana "Caravanserai" QUADRAPHONIC MIX DVD-A only (1972)
DVD-A Only ISO (Image + Front & Back Covers) | 96/24 4.0 LPCM | ISO 15 x 190,7 MB + 152 MB
Genre: Classic Rock/Latin Fusion | Label: Columbia CAQ 31610 | Source: SQ LP

Caravanserai marked a new beginning in Santana' musical direction. Carlos played his wailing solos quite a bit less and let the ensemble take over-and what an ensemble.
This is one of Prog-Latin Rock's first masterpieces. Briefly reunited by Gregg Rollie, the original singer, and joined by an astounding young bass player, Doug Rauch (RIP), this is a REAL journey into the beauty of the desert.
THis is the same 96/24 rip that was used in the DTS-CD, but a bit "spiffed up": some light izotoping (H Exc, a bit of puncher and some dithering),
AND
with a great slideshow created by yours truly , in which you'll see the lyrics and some cool backgrounds.
Enjoy!
