   David Arkenstone is an artist/composer of electronic New Age music whom I discovered in the mid '90s. His music is mostly instrumental, my guess, using sound samples and real instruments. Though his music doesn't appeal to everyone I think he is a musical genius.

Amazon has a Collection of his work, I notice a few albums missing, but also several newer albums I haven't heard. Anyway I am going to listen to Frontier an album I am familiar with. When I first listen to this the beginning song would distort slightly, with a resolving system and good recording it should play clean. So this is what I'll be listening for plus I like the tunes.

David Arkenstone- Frontier- 1:04 minutes, 2001

Next: ELP- Show That Never Ends. This is one of my Desert Island albums, I've been playing the album since the mid-'70s, a Masterpiece IMO. This looks to be the re-mastered version but I won't know for sure until I play it.

WELCOME BACK MY FRIENDS TO THE SHOW THAT NEVER ENDS - LADIES AND GENTLEMEN (LIVE)
Emerson, Lake & Palmer- 1:49 minutes, 1974


Wow, that was the best I have ever heard it, a real treat!

Have many Gary Numan albums, this one is my Go To. Mostly listened to Gary Numan in the 80's which is what my friend was listening to. Actually that is where I got my start in listening to electronic music, from him. Also he says he saw this Tour and it was one of the best light shows he had ever seen.

I'm pretty sure this is re-mastered. I recently transferred the vinyl version to digital which IMO had more depth in the details than this cd version. So I'll be listening carefully to see if this recording betters the vinyl.

   I don't remember what happened there. I took my collection of Western themes from 3 cds but the song Ecstasy of Gold I listen to doesn't match up with any of them.

Ok, I'll Stream Neil Young- Decade, 2:25 minutes, 1977.
I don't usually listen to the whole thing just a few songs from this collection

   What to Stream today, I don't know but I'll start 'er off with 'Keep the Faith' by Bon Jovi. I prefer the live version off their blu ray album but this version too sounds incredible.

Rush- Exit Stage Left, 1:16 minutes, 1981
  The cd version recording wasn't very good, we'll see how this compares. One of my favorite Rush songs 'Jacob's Ladder' is on this album, which isn't on the dvd, also this IMO has the best version of Xanadu.




The heavy bass gives the recording a dark sound. Bumping the bass back a notch and cranking it the recording is actually pretty good. Spirit of Radio at the start was just bad.

Bought this cd back in the '90s to listen to while driving taxi. Achilles Stand had a bunch of skips in it. Now I'm going to play this song without the skips.

Achilles Last Stand- re-mastered

   So we're at my friends brothers place sleeping on the floor. On the radio the DJ is playing backward masking from songs on this album. Being religious at the time I had a negative view of this albums. Now however I find the album Epic.

Now that I'm all mellowed out going to try some Ram Jam. Heard the song Black Betty streamed at work and thought it was pretty good.
