Post your current favourite CD or LP here! Anything goes! Cool

Also it would help if you gave us a bit of a review - like Country rock using fiddles or folk rock with a female singer, etc.

My current CD is the remastered Abbey Road by The Beatles. Certainly better than the old CD and my Canadian vinyl... from what I remember. I guess I had better listen to the vinyl before I make a conclusion!

I do have an early Japanese pressing that I want to compare it to!

Has anyone heard UK vinyl and compared it to the CD?

What's spinning at your house?

The NEW Abbey Road by The Beatles !!!

Nice to be able to hear the bass properly, finally.

Also try Oscar Petersen 'It feels good to me' off "We Get Requests". Mammoth bass by Ray Brown - I didn't know bass frequencies like that existed in 1965 Wink

This weekend, I have rediscovered Dire Strait's "One every street" CD. I like the songs, but also the recording. This past weekend I have moved some speakers from the living room, down to the basement, to find that my Calindas that sound very full on the other floor, sound flat and without bass in the basement. So, I must conclude that the acoustic in that basement has way to much dampening.

Apart from the generally excellent music, Sting's 'Brand New Day' has some very low bass rumbling at the very start which had me (with the aid of my R107s) momentarily disorientated, and the family elsewhere in the house thought there was an earthquake going on.

With the recent death of Jerry Rafferty I have started to listen to 'Night Owl' again, it really must be one of the best albums ever made. RIP Jerry.

Lee In Montreal : what a beautiful set up ! The KEF, the room, the picture...

In my previous flat, it was not as clean as it could be (the good time before wife came)...





What I am listening right now ?

MAMA MIA! - THE RPO PLAYS THE SONGS OF ABBA (2008)

But it's not exactely my taste : I am with my wife in the living room.

I am not a great fan of ABBA, but I must admit there is another dimension when it's played by the Royal Philarmonic Orchestra.
