Good to see someone else loves June Christy. Found some originals at a Goodwill, even better than the re-issues.

HW


I have a lot of her original Capitol pressings as well - they are all great! Figured the Cisco "Something Cool" would be the one that most would identify with. Looking forward to the file comparisons.

In the rock genre:

Side 2 of Blind Faith preferably an early GB press. You get Winwood's voice on Sea Of Joy and Baker's long drum workout on Do What You Like. A very dynamic recording and very challenging.

Be Bop Deluxe ~ Sunburst Finish an exquisite recording I recently dug out for ripping that I hadn't played in years. Also very dynamic with lot's of stuff going on.

Quadrophenia, the album, not the soundtrack. Especially Side 4.

A 1st press of Morrison Hotel is also a very surprising recording. Later pressings are not going to be as nice.

My favorite set up song, Billy Thorpe ~ Children Of The Sun.

Honorable mention, Dire Straits ~ Skateaway.

Looking forward to the results,

Cheers !

I recommend King Crimson's Lark's Tongues in Aspic, probably the EMI half-speed edition. One reviewer in the day noted that the album adjusts volume for you. Side A has a very wide range of everything, from quiet strings and lush mellotron to very loud rock.

A mono copy of Kind of Blue is a good tool to discern depth of imaging as well an nuances of reed and bass instrumentation. And drums. And keyboard. And bass. With a very good cartridge, one can hear Coltrane and Adderly breathing and Miles' emboucher is distinct. An excellent cartridge will reveal very deep bass distinct from Chambers' plucking.

I like the first few Alan Parsons Project albums—especially Tales of Mystery and Imagination for the side B orchestration—because they are very good recordings on less-than-wonderful media. One can hear both the bad and good with clarity.
