Dave Brubeck

Happy birthday Dave Brubeck (1920), Jonathan King (1944) and Len Barry (“1-2-3”) (1942).

I couldn’t possibly begin to list everything to do with Jonathan King!  I do have a few Dave Brubeck titles, however.

John Mayall

Happy birthday John Mayall (1933), Chuck Mangione (1940), Denny Doherty (The Mamas & The Papas) (1941) and Felix Cavlieri (The Rascals) (1944).

I’ve got some John Mayall (I started with “The Turning Point”) and some Mamas & Papas and Rascals.

I don’t think I’ve ever written about John Mayall before, so here goes…most all of his LP’s got issued in the US, and they were in every record store.  I do not now remember how I heard “Turning Point”, but I understood that it was to be his LP to the backlash of LOUD and HEAVY  groups…it is fully acoustic!

Miles Davis

Happy birthday Screaming Lord Sutch (1940) and Greg Lake (EL&P) (1948).  Not much to say about dear departed Lord Sutch, however I did buy a few E, L & P records!  However, I just wrote about them a short time ago.

MILES DAVIS – Complete Bitches Brew (4CD boxed set, Columbia Records)

I recently found the 4CD “Complete Bitches Brew” for a very good price…I already have several SA-CD’s of Miles Davis, but by no means everything!

Discs 1 & 2 were good to very good, but Disc #3 was really GREAT!

Yes

Happy birthday Jon Anderson (singer of Yes) (1944) – this is also the day that Nick Drake died in 1974.

Since I only like Yes WITH Jon Anderson, I’ll do Yes today!  I’ve bought a few editions of some Yes titles!

“The Yes” on an Italian LP, a 5.1 DVD-A of “Fragile”…I remember hearing them back around 1970 on the FM radio: “All Good People”, probably.  I bought “Fragile” as soon as it came out, and quickly lost interest – but why?  It is British progressive rock!  I guess I just didn’t need “Close To The Edge”; a discount store near here had the 3LP “Yessongs” for a really low price, so I got that one, when new, too.

“90125” was originally called “80143” or something like that, indicating it was a dollar less in retail price.  I also bought the SA-CD boxed set, when it was new (as that added a few titles to the short list of what was on SA-CD).

Beat Sound – Day 2

Happy birthday Rick Parfitt (Status Quo) (1948) – this is also the day Gene Vincent died in 1971.

“Beat Sound” – Day 2

To continue from yesterday’s “ranking”…

#11 top ranked band: Curved Air, who have no audiophile releases, as far as I know

Their recommended album:  “Air Cut” (1973), I like “Phantasmagoria” better

#12 top ranked band: U.K., who didn’t have any audiophile releases in 2010, but now have SA-CD’s available

Their recommended album: “U.K.” (1978), probably their best – but generally I am not a fan

#13 top ranked band / artist: Anthony Philips, who, in 2010, had no audiophile releases

His recommended album:  “The Geese and The Ghost” (1977), which I do enjoy

#14 top ranked band: Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso, who had recently had their Dischi albums released as Blu-spec CD’s

Their recommended album:  “Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso” (their first album, 1972) which I found copies of

#15 top ranked band: Hatfield & The North, still no audiophile releases on this band

Their recommended album:  “The Rotter’s Club” (1975), er, not my favorite…

#16 top ranked band: England, whose sole album had recently been re-released as a Blu=spec CD.

Their recommended album:  “Garden Shed” (1977), I’m not much of a fan – passed their sell-by date

#17 top ranked band: Jon and Vangelis, no audiophile releases

Their recommended album: “The Friends of Mr. Cairo” (1981), which didn’t stand out, as I recall

#18 top ranked band: Faust, no audiophile releases

Their recommended album: “Faust So Far (1972), I prefer their debut album, actually

#19 top ranked band / artist: Peter Gabriel, who had many audiophile (SA-CD’s) released

Their recommended album:  “Peter Gabriel” (his first album, 1977), which I did find an SA-CD of

#20 top ranked band: P.F.M., no audiophile releases

Their recommended album:  “Photos of Ghosts” (1973), looks to be the English version – so I have an original LP & a nice CD version of that one

Beat Sound – Day 1

Happy birthday Daryl Hall (of Hall & Oates) (1946).  The Beatles 45 “Love Me Do” charted today in England, 1962.

In 2010, I bought a Japanese magazine based on it’s cover: “Beat Sound”.  I bought it secondhand.  The cover of this edition is a mélange of progressive bands – different to the one the Japanese “Record Collector’s Magazine”!  “Beat Sound” appears to be a high end audiophile magazine…

Anyway, I like their rankings, so I’ll be sharing some of that with y’all over the next few days!

“The Sound Labyrinth of Progressive Rock”

#1 top ranked band: King Crimson, as their 5.1 mixes had just been released!

I bought a set of them, up to, but not including “Beat”

#2 top ranked band: Pink Floyd, as an SA-CD of “Dark Side of the Moon” had been released

I have all 3 x versions of “DSOTM” on SA-CD, but it’s my least favorite PF album!

#3 top ranked band: Yes, as a DVD-A of “Fragile” had already been released

Eventually the Japanese made an SA-CD of it in 5.1, so that’s what I got first

#4 top ranked band: Emerson, Lake & Palmer, as “Brain Salad Surgery” had already been released as an SA-CD in England

I bought the first few albums by them as DVD-A’s, and I have “BSS” as an SA-CD

#5 top ranked band: Tangerine Dream, whose audiophile released were in the future;

I have “Phaedra” & “Rubycon” as SA-CD’s, in 2016

#6 top ranked band: Gong, who have no audiophile releases, to my knowledge

I really like Gong, but am not aware of any audiophile releases on them.

#7 top ranked band: Area, who have no audiophile releases, to my knowledge

Not a fan of Area, for the most part – never heard anything that grabbed me

#8 top ranked band / artist: Mike Oldfield

Yes I got the 2CD + DVD-A 5.1 from Japan, later on I found I found a 4.0 “Tubular Bells” in Tokyo

#9 top ranked band: Caravan, who had recently released an SA-CD of “In The Land of Grey & Pink”

Which I duly bought; also picked up on “For Girls Who Grow Plump In The Night” SA-CD

#10 top ranked band: Soft Machine, who they mention as having their stuff mastered as DSD!

I think all of their CBS albums got DSD mastered in Japan

Janis Joplin / Big Brother & The Holding Company

Janis Joplin died today of a drug overdose in 1970.  Being a fan of “hippie music”, I always kind of liked Big Brother & The Holding Company (I will confess to not owning the post-Janis Joplin albums by BB & THC).

I have a vivid memory of going to San Francisco (with my parents) about 1973 or so, and buying a UK pressing of “Cheap Thrills” (which I still have).  Many years later, I bought a 5.1 mix of “Cheap Thrills”, as an SA-CD.  The Robert Crumb artwork is very impressive on “Cheap Thrills”!

I also enjoy their debut LP, and I have a few different versions of it – I really like the version that has the extra material (“Coo Coo” b/w “The Last Time”, a Mainstream 45).  Still working on finding all of the Mainstream 45’s!

If there’s a flaw in the Janis Joplin catalogue, it’s her first solo album, “I Got Dem Ol Kozmic Blues Again” – just like when it came out, I still don’t know what to make of that LP!  And I just bought a copy of “Pearl” as a paper (kami) sleeve CD in Japan – though I imagine they will eventually issue all of the Big Brother & Janis solo albums as blu-spec CD’s…new mastering, to keep me busy buying…

Though if I stop and think about it, I have the best version of “Cheap Thrills” (the SA-CD), and I am not displeased in any way with the paper (kami) sleeve CD I recently got in Tokyo of “Pearl” – and as I already have a paper (kami) sleeve CD of the debut album…perhaps I can be done with whatever I will purchase on BB & JJ?

Bob Dylan – “Dylan” (8″ packaging, 2007 master)

Happy birthday David Clayton Thomas (Blood, Sweat & Tears) (1941); also “Live Peace In Toronto 1969” is recorded tonight!

BOB DYLAN – “Dylan” (Columbia 8883714922)

As good as a good “Best of” or “Greatest Hits”, I bought a copy of this in Raleigh, North Carolinaat a place called “Ollie’s Army” in 8” packaging, for less than $2.-

I already have all of the SA-CD’s that were done for Mr. Dylan, and they technically sound “better”.  But this is a fairly recent mastering from 2007, so it does not sound bad.

https://www.discogs.com/Dylan-Dylan/release/3738946

I could use this CD as a “Greatest Hits” with the first 12 tracks alone. But there are 18 tracks.  And I do enjoy the 8” packaging!  (I wonder how many of those there were?)

Beck Bogert & Appice (Epic Japan 7″ packaging 5.1 SA-CD)

Happy birthday George Jones (1931) and Maria Muldaur (1943)!

JEFF BECK, TIM BOGERT & CARMINE APPICE – s/t (EPIC Japan 5.1 audio, 7” packaging) 2016 release

1973, 9 tracks, made in the USA for this British guitarist; if not then Don Nix and The Boys went to England to make an LP (quad at that!)!  This SA-CD says it’s 5.1, not ‘quad’.

https://www.discogs.com/Beck-Bogert-Appice-Beck-Bogert-Appice/release/8641714

The above is exactly what I got from Japan.  It comes with two Japanese “picture sleeves” and a booklet explaining 5.1 audio / SA-CD etc.

While this is not my favorite Jeff Beck album, I am a sucker for new 5.1 SA-CD’s!  The booklet says backing vocals are by Danny Hutton – maybe that’s what sounds good?
