  1. The Horace Silver Quintet ‎– Further Explorations - another Tone Poet winner
  2. Yea Let's have separate cassette, SACD, DVD-A , minidisc, pono and an 8 track forum . Anymore dead formats I forgot? 😊
  3. David Bowie ‎– Metrobolist (Nine Songs By David Bowie) - 2020 - the Visconti mix - a bit controversial . Sounds excellent and a nice alternative to the original mix. Sounds in a different universe to the crappy digital reissues of 2016.
  4. joining in. I almost fell backwards out of my chair when track 1 started as I had it on loud. I really wish Martin would add some of these type sounds to the new Depeche album, as they are a little by the numbers recently.
  5. Andy, I only wish I had K-pop on vinyl. https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B0791WFFGH/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_image_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

  11. Very much so. Even the 80's UK pressings of Floyd are superb. The 2016 digital reissues are about as good as digital gets thou.
  12. Steve Do you have any older UK analog releases ?
  13. I would think so. cd's are now like cheap cassettes - they sell at minimum cost. the cd market would dive to almost zero if they were parity price with vinyl releases.
