Yup. Thats her. Just Amazing.. Why are all her recordings so crisp and detailed?
I hope this is not off topic but if you like very close and intimate vocals you should try Ben Harper ( especially Fight for your mind) for male vocal.
I am sort of in between love and hate with his songs, though he does have very nice up close vocals in the album.
I don't know if it fits what you're looking for but the first thing that came to mind when reading this thread was how good the 650s make female vocals sound. With that said I highly recommend Tracy Bonham - "Blink the Brightest". I don't know if it's 'well-recorded' but it sounds like it is.
Thanks!! I really love your recommendations. I have a feeling I may have same music taste. Your recommendations are always appreciated. Anything you think sound great, I'm willing to try out.
Here fatcat recommended Harry Belefonte, Live at Carnegie Hall, April 19/20,1959. I thought the voice was recorded flawlessly. Anything recorded well like that?
Sinatra At The Sands with Count Basie is an excellent recording but all the releases have crap mastering. I also like the way Eric Clapton Unplugged was recorded.
I love the way Jacintha sounds on "Here's To Ben".
The track "Lead Me to the Rock" by Ricky Skaggs is probably one of my favorite vocal tracks, if you're into acapella bluegrass/gospel music. Listening to it through Grado SR80i is like a dream, haha. Check it out if you want, it's from the album Soldier of the Cross.
I can strongly recommend this as a superbly recorded album. She has a beautiful voice, however she's unemotional. In the end, I love the voice and the recording, I just can't get involved/caught up in the presentation.
