I feel the same way.  Quite often, actually.

Well, since Steely Dan and Donald Fagen have already been mentioned a lot:

Walter Becker - Circus Money
Walter Becker - 12 tracks of Whack

Those albums have such a refreshing sound

It's an overview of Keen's work for Sugar Hill, so a compilation album.

Whoops, I thought it was a live album. Wikipedia says it is. I have all the albums this compilation highlights, so I won't be picking it up. I really doubt it's mastered better than the original releases. The "West Textures" and "The Live Album" CDs have no compression and the SACD of "No Kinda Dancer" and "Gringo Honeymoon" CD sound excellent.

Few of my choices:
DMB- live from central park
Red Hot Chili Peppers-stadium arcadium
Allman brothers - live at fillmore east
Hendrix - blues
The Stones- sticky fingers
Led zeppelin - how the west was won

Just to name a few

Stadium Arcadium is indeed a very well recorded album in terms of modern recording techniques. However, to really appreciate it, you must hear the vinyl version. The CD really suffers from the loudness wars and is compressed to elephant poop levels. Not good.

Agreed, too bad it wasn't released in such limited copies or more people could enjoy it properly!!

In my opionion, these are some of the best albums ever made:
1. Dire Straits - Making movies
2. Dire Straits - Alchemy ( live )
3. Chic ( all albums ), some of the best bass lines I have ever heard, definitely check it out smily_headphones1.gif

Hope someone will agree with me on this one.

Benny Carter - Further Definitions

This album has the most incredible ambience and air I've ever heard.  In many tracks it sounds like a binaural recording even though it's not.  The recording is clean without any background hiss unlike you sometimes get with jazz albums, the sound is buttery smooth and dynamic.

"Funhouse" the stooges
"Revolution of the mind: live at the Apollo v3" James brown
"All things must pass" George Harrison
