Kiki Dee: Almost Naked        (2 of 2 found this review helpful)
  January 18, 2008

What an amazing disc. The recording is very clean, intimate and alive. Very sparse....just voice, guitar and the occasional subtle keyboards. Great performance and songs, many written by Kiki herself. This is a laid back disc but I highly recommend it.
Beck: Sea Change      (3 of 5 found this review helpful)
  August 25, 2007

This recording seems to be a love it or hate it proposition. Sadly I must put myself in the latter category. The sonics are fine, but I don't find them as outstanding as others do. And the music is dreadfully dreary IMHO, the tempo varies little from track to track. Maybe I'm missing something, ... more
Cowboy Junkies: Open        (1 of 1 found this review helpful)

I have to agree with replevin on this one. Music is OK but you need to be in the right mood. It's very dark and brooding with references to water in almost every song.

Concern with sacd disc players
November 26, 2015
My Denon 3930, purchased in 2007, was fine at first but as time went by more and more Hybrid SACDs would refuse to play until it reached the point where virtually none of them cooperate. In the process of replacing the laser but it's not working 100% either. The supplier is sending another laser but have resigned myself to the fact this player may ... more
Discussion: Stevie Ray Vaughan: Texas Hurricane Box Set
November 21, 2015
Thanks to lower price at Import CDs and the 10% off sale I got the whole thing for $195.71. No way I'd pay what amounts to $100 for the box at full price, but $ problem. ... more
New site up
August 18, 2015
Like many others I am unable to log into the new site. It does not recognize my e-mail address. I would say "so what, I'll just use the old site", except new releases do not seem to be getting added to the old site so my library will fall behind. Not happy about the prospect of re-entering my entire (approx.) 500 disc library in the new site. Hope ... more

I figured that out out the same time you posted :) Unfortunately the new site doesn't recognize my e-mail address therefore it won't allow me to reset the password. ... more
