3. Tom Petty - "Wildflowers"(stays in most of the time)

4. R.E.M. - "Automatic for the People"

5. Mozart Piano Concertos 22 & 23 - Barenboim w\ECO (terrific performance from 1967)

This is really, really funny. I have a Toshiba DVD player that has two disc trays. I just took a look at the last two things I listened to last night.

In Tray 1 we have Garbage, "Release 2.0"

In Tray 2 we have Newport Classic Binaural recording of the Pasadena Symphony Orchestra performing Strauss' "Also Sprach Zarathustra!" (click here for info on this awsome recording... http://www.binaural.com/binbb.html )


Music is art

Audio is engineering

The last thing I listened to? Well, to be honest it was "The Greatest Hits Of 1720" on CD, last PM. Well, at least the first part of it, before I falled to sleepy-bye -- This was on my lower mid-fi bedroom rig, which consists of a gritty 14 year-old Akai 65W/chl. integrated amp driving an awsome pair of Realistic Minimus 77's hanging on the wall facing the foot of the bed. This fed by a 13 year-old Technics top-loading CD changer. All strung together with freebie interconnects. Pretty impressive, huh? Hey, whaddya think, I'm made of money or somethin'?

Uhh--a newly purchaced Lenny Kravitz' Greatest Hits. Which also had me scrambling to turn down the analyzer sensativity and the variable loudness control.

If you decide to crank this one up, like, concert level BE CAREFUL!! "American Woman" has intentional distortion on the vocals. And I thought I fried both midranges..whew!

Colin, I second "All You Can Eat." k.d. lang kicks Diana Krall's butt (Figuratively, but probably could literally, as well. Now THERE'S a pay-per-view I'd actually pay to see!).

The LAST cd, though, was Tony Rice "Unit of Measure."
