OK so I just got this new release and after two tracks I know it'll be a winner...

I'm a longtime OTR fan. Their new one, The Long Surrender, is pretty good, as was the previous release, The Trumpet Child, but the latter is more of a departure from Ohio than the more recent.  I think my favorite is this one (Good Dog Bad Dog):

It was recently remastered, and is available at a reasonable price after being out of print for a while and at ridiculous prices on the used market.

No problem there, make those recommendations.  I'm in India for work part of the year, I should start picking up some CDs.  I'll look like I know something about their music with the help of your choices wink.gif

Jimi Hendrix Blues.  Jax, I'm surprised this wasn't in your flawless selections but maybe because it's a compilation album (I think it is).  Start to finish a great album.

Guitar up front and center on the LCD-2.  I'm in the process of finding the best tubes for the Lyr when listening to rock.  The Mullards are almost a little too warm and smooth for Jimi.

I love a wide range of music.   I actually prefer not to understand lyrics in the tongues which I do not speak.  I have a truck load of latin music such as salsa, cuban, afro cuban and more that I actually prefer not to know the lyrics too.  I just enjoy the vocal immensely that way.  So recommend away....

Oh whereabout in India?

 

You should listen to Nusrat Fateh Ali, Ghulam Ali, AR Rahman, Ali Zafar. They are all masters at their respective genres. Some of these albums may be extremely difficult to procure so you'll may have to resort to youtube

 

Nusrat - Mustt Musst http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajqwy3AOmJQ first song from this album, Night Song with Michael Brook (should be easily available) -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQsMEuMitE4

Ghulam Ali - He mainly sang Ghazals so it's individual songs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7TQb_Drm0sE&playnext=1&list=PL14F78358AA4FA226

AR Rahman - Fire, Rang De Basanti (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39Hduo81vRI) the video is cheesy lol but the music is good  (his music is easily available)

Ali Zafar - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UknDjQZr5E&feature=related good song to see if you like his stuff

Got lots of Nusrat but I haven't heard of the other guys, will definitely check them out.  I do like Ravi and Anoushka Shankar.  I visit Goa, New Delhi, Assam, Mumbai and Kolkata.

 

For some India flavor check out Miles Davis in India

Hendrix music was spoiled for me from college years, which is sad, I know.  I actually lived in the dorm for my first year of college and my next door neighbor was a big Hendrix fan.  The problem with that was that he was also mostly deaf (my school shares a campus with NTID) so in order for him to enjoy Hendrix, which was all he ever played, he played it at wall rattling volume....at all hours of the day and night.  This got old real fast, as did pounding on his door with no response, and many heated arguments.  We eventually sorted things out, but not before I was permanently scarred by hearing Hendrix music when it was anything but my choice, at volumes that could rattle your fillings if you were in the same room, on a really crappy system that had been wrung out from pushing it way too far.  For the life of me I cannot remember why he just didn't want to use headphones...I think he preferred feeling the music as well, which I can completely understand, though not from the perspective of hearing impairment.  I've been lately trying to get to know Hendrix music again in a different light, but that's coming slowly and is not without some flashbacks to those college years.  I'll check out that album...I do have it - thanks.  Hendrix is buried not far from where I live, and recently I photographed two of his Strats for a book on guitars I worked on, so I have a bit of curious incentive to learn more about him and his music.

As it seems that I am getting used to the soundstage, I decide to venture out in put it through its paces with some classical. I usually like a bigger soundstage with my symphonies, but these Mozart 38th and 39th symphonies sounded so dramatic through the lcd2, it put a huge smile on my face. Especially when the 3rd and 4th track played.

Brasewel,   found a few CD's of  Nusrat Fate.  Still looking for the rest.  Thanks.

 

WNBC.  I did not know of the "Miles from India" album and I thought I knew every work!  Definitely going to look for that.

 

Jax,  So you lived in the NTID building!  I remember pranksters would pull the fire alarm in that building late at night to see the strobe lights that would go off in every separate dorm room to awaken the deaf kids and create a huge multi strobing light display from the street.  It was quite a sight to see actually.  The deaf kids would groove on the strong vibrations from open air speaker systems thats why they didn't use headphones.

I love this thread.

 

For indian classical, checkout Shiv Kumar Sharma, he plays an instrument called santoor that has a very beautiful sound. I'm a fan of indian singing and take classes in the indian vocal tradition. I you are really into indian vocal I suggest Pandit Pran Nath http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yUzBCPkro4E

 

There are lots of more easygoing indian vocal and Pandit Pran might not be one of them. Pran Nath on the nature of Ragas: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eg06upncRsY&feature=related
