And here I was all happy that my seven Bob Dylan Monos (180g) arrived in one box yesterday...  :beerchug:

It is the quality of vinyl and music on it that counts, not sheer numbers. I'd rather have one good disc than X mediocre ones. I am happy and grateful for each and every good one 

 

So, :beerchug:

Agreed. BUT - from his previous post(s) it is clear this deck "has not been handled with particular care" - to stay on the polite side. I can understand the pic showing corner with badge plate only...

Conducted by my favourite conductor, Herbert Kegel http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herbert_Kegel I will post more about this dark horse among men with baton.

 

Otherwise, very little of :beerchug: this weekend. Tomorrow I will be recording a female choir in a totally unknown church; we will be positioning mikes more than anything else, to squeeze max out of the acoustics available there. So that we can concentrate on real recording in next few sessions.

 

Horizons-

 

Please do. Autumn 2013 for me will see me trying new teas and new music... and new French bubbly. :normal_smile :

Our Radio Student has show called Expanding Horizons from the times immemorable - or at least back to my student days.

 

So, pretend you are tuned to FM 89.3, and although classics is their least represented genre, every now and then "blind chicken finds the grain". 

The set to introduce you to Kegel is this one : http://www.allmusic.com/album/release/legendary-recordings-of-herbert-kegel-box-set-mr0002695881

It is the slightly broader tip of the iceberg. Sonic quality is not consistent from CD to CD, as they encompass quite large span in time. But if you land anything from Carl Orff conducted by him on vinyl, be it Philips, EMI or other western labels, or the preferred Eastern German ETERNA label, you've scored bull's eye. Particularly Der Mond http://www.amazon.com/Orff-Der-Mond/dp/B00515WUV6

and Die Kluge http://www.allmusic.com/album/orff-die-kluge-der-mond-mw0001535106. These recordings sound terrific even on CD - transfer they did to digital FAR surpasses more usual suspects. But be prepared to pay onehellofalotofmoney for those Eterna LPs in good condition... 

 

If you are into Mahler, here the 1st from the above 15CD set in 192/24 as download: 

 

More on Kegel : http://www.lesliegerber.net/writing/progam-notes/herbert-kegel/

 

Over & out - have to pack gear for tomorrow. I'll be back on sunday.

Large quantities buddy, Large quantities. cool.gif


Hmm, nice. I bought the version by Klemperer with Elisabeth Swarzkopf and Dietrich Fisher Dieskau just a month ago for €2. Must have... And last week the Carpenters 'now and then' for €1. Wasn't sure about that last one but glad I did. It's of a kind of 'all American' goodie two shoes, break the glazing off your teeth overly sweet. But, hey, I liked as a kid. So... Now I'm glad I did. It's an exellent record and here I can stomach Karen Carpenters voice very well. Quality doesn't fade that easily. I like the cover to: 3 page foldout red ferrari.


Oh, and I was just watching the movie 'the mechanic' on tv with Jason Statham. He is the new definition of cool? cool.gif "Don't touch that" when his protegé was flipping the arm.

Another cool touch: how to blow up your house at the end with a TT as timer. tongue.gif

Very good flick. The original with Charles Bronson and Jan Michael Vincent was excellent as well. Made in the '70's. Both worth watching.

#2 from The Cube :

 

 

Sorry for the quality of photos - when I pay 0.000000001 % attentionDedication of what I do for phono, they might look semi-decent... This one has intentionally murky colours and is nice in real life, but prooved to much for my nondescript camera (or should I have said my photographic skills ).

You must be one positive type guy to dig into two Brahms Requiems back to back.

There are more back to back examples in that cube. Dvorak 9, most likely others too. In the original smaller "scouting" shipping from thge same seller were two Bruckner's 8th symphonies.

 

I listen a lot to different performaces of the same work. From musical point of view as well as from the recording point - particularly when I know recording of that piece is lying ahead. Although I try to be original and do the recording my own way whenever possible, being familiar with past masters can certainly not hurt.
