  2. J. S. Bach, Chen Pi-hsien ‎ Goldberg Variations. Naxos ‎– 8.550078 Germany 1988 https://www.discogs.com/J-S-Bach-Chen-Pi-hsien-Goldberg-Variations/release/2012918 this has been sitting around for months, time to play it. Chen gets a good write up for her 2001 recording; https://www.classicstoday.com/review/review-15845/ so i am keen to hear this earlier recording. Just been listening to Oscar Peterson & Clark Terry, with Oscar mumbling away, reminded me of His Glenness. Does anyone have an opinion about Gould's 1981 recording, I like it, but critics give it a hard time.
  3. Howlin' Wolf Live And Cookin' At Alice's Revisited. Chess CH 50015. Reissue, US 1978. https://www.discogs.com/Howlin-Wolf-Live-And-Cookin-At-Alices-Revisited/release/2725639 A well loved LP bought in 1978.

Eu 1987 the Monkees & the Archies, go figure... the things you end up with when you buy a collection!
  5. Hi Marc, yes I am interested, I have been wanting to sell my classical & romantic collection. This ranges from some rare to rarish HMV/Columbia notes & Decca (1950s-1960s), to branded records 1960-1980s & good quality World Record Club Aust. (pressed by EMI Aust.). Also the 'dreaded' boxed sets from branded e.g. Decca Angel UK to WRC. Regards, Gary.
  6. Good advice from the posters above. Some artists to consider are: Count Basie many, but try Farmer's market barbecue https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Go2o1NBEevQ&list=PL4ZFa-mThx3Jj0Jxk9day_VNAHYP_z9NM&index=1 Art Blakey And The Jazz Messengers, Vol. 2 - Mission Eternal https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLmLF_FDa81g8olFdgdSVmymp-RgVlsS7z John Coltrane The Ultimate Blue Train https://www.discogs.com/John-Coltrane-The-Ultimate-Blue-Train/release/401058 Yusef Lateef Lost In Sound https://www.discogs.com/Yusef-Lateef-Lost-In-Sound/release/4427238 Chico Hamilton Man From Two Worlds https://www.discogs.com/Chico-Hamilton-Man-From-Two-Worlds/release/1196591 The Modern Jazz Quartet The Last Concert https://www.discogs.com/The-Modern-Jazz-Quartet-The-Last-Concert/master/154857 Jimmy Witherspoon & Ben Webster Previously Unreleased Recordings https://www.discogs.com/Jimmy-Witherspoon-Ben-Webster-Previously-Unreleased-Recordings/master/1078920 The Ben Webster Quintet Soulville https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IR0sqSbpl7A The Oscar Peterson Trio Night Train https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-YJP5HjG7Xo John Sangster scroll to bottom at this link https://soundcloud.com/blank-recording-company happy hunting!

  7. I am looking upgrade my CD player & a Roksan Caspian M Series -1 flip face CD player C. 2010, recently serviced, has come up for sale. They want $1K. I intend to pair it with a Leak 60 power amp & 1974 10" Tannoy bookshelf speakers. I haven't heard it demo'd yet, does anyone know if they are worth this money? I read review on a similar model, which said the sound quality was good even with Standard pressing CDs, which is what I mostly have, has anyone else observed this? Does the flip face loading interface play up with this model? Thanks, Gary.
