      Fourth page and "Pet Sounds" hasn't been mentioned. (Well, it has now)
      <div class="signaturecontainer">Here's a tip - if you put out some horrible lo-fi recording that sounds like a Gorilla banging an antelope while using a vacuum with a bad belt drive to suck up a floor full of marbles and silverware - and folks don't line up in mass numbers to hop on your wagon... maybe it ain't us who don't &quot;get it&quot;. - THX1138</div>

        Count me another fan of DSOTM, especially the Mobile Fidelity Labs half-speed master.

        David Grisman, Dawg Grass / Dawg Jazz. Unfortunately, no longer in print, as far as I can tell. I don't think it even appeared on CD.

        Here are a few where the composition, arrangement, performance, engineering, and production all came together to produce my favorite examples of perfect pop songs:

        Willin (from Sailing Shoes) - Little Feat
        Help Me - Joni Mitchell
        The Suit - Jerry Douglas (vocals by James Taylor)
        Galileo - Indigo Girls

        But there sure are a lot of great recordings out there, and some amazingly good examples in mono from back in the day (before my time, even).

          Yes "Fragile" is my all time favorite. Dynamic and imaginative music that was way ahead of it's time. I especially enjoy the dynamics and crescendo of "Heart Of The Sunrise". the 5.1 remix on DVD-A is sensational. I just watched a season 2 episode of Fringe that opens with Walter Bishop smoking weed in a bong to a vinyl record playing "Roundabout". Boy, did that bring back memories.

              It occurs to me that some of the stuff Ry Cooder has been involved with are stunning recordings.

              Buena Vista Social Club, which I believe was produced by Ry Cooder and Nick Gold...hopefully I'm remembering that correctly.

                  I often use both of these as a reference to 'clean' my ears. That's some outstanding engineering, from start to finish.

                      I've got a 1963 Lightnin' Hopkins album I recorded from vinyl that has the most natural sounding drums I've ever heard on a recording. I mean, if you put on headphones and shut your eyes, you'd swear you were 4 feet from a drum set. The whole album is just Lightnin on acoustic guitar and singing, plus this drummer, with a few tracks having a bass player.

                        I like the phrase "cleaning the ears"! The engineering is real smart...the sound is natural, full, and beautiful, with a physicality and sense of dimension that is so often missing in music recordings, and capturing the spark and creativity between the musicians. Fantastic.

                              Rudy was asked: "Is it good to sleep with an open window?"

                              Rudy's answers: "In principle yes, but with a woman it is better."

                                The musicians are all maestros of their genres too, which helps. But ya, really great recordings. I've played BVSC on umpteen systems over the years, reference headphones etc., and can't hear a single thing that I'd grumble about.
