On a couple setups I've had, the cannon blasts will throw the needle straight out of the groove. I played in through my dad's B&W matrix 803's, and the blast was fully extending the drivers (the rest of the track was probably sitting around 70-75dB). It's certainly my reference for a TT setup's tracking ability.
My problem with recommending that album is that one must be vewy, vewy caweful with it. One can blow drivers, maybe even amps and possibly damage the stylus. I've never been tempted for those reasons. A good set up disc with the appropriate tools would be a better choice, IMHO.
