Yes, Hope is one of the best live albums ever recorded.


Still remember the first time I heard this! Shivers! Electrostatic speakers. Amazing.

Simon and Garfunkel - The New York Concert, 1967, Carnegie Hall.  Picked up the CD at Half-Price books the other day.  Great recording and it takes me back to being 16.  WONDERFUL music!
Oddly timely today.

Don Menza Sextet - Live at Carmelo's Jazz Club
2 CD-set (previously released album "Hip Pocket" + 6 unreleased tracks from the same gig)
Fresh Sound Records label (Spain), 24 BIT

Excellent bop-revival music and recording.

Neil Diamond, Hot August Night, especially the Mo-Fi version.

And who can forget Harry Belafonte in Carnegie Hall?  :notworthy:

"....These guys and this recording just rocks. Pace, rhythm, tone and soundstage are just off the charts. The precise placement of all four of the musicians perfectly matches the photos of the sessions. The balance of all four instruments is darn near perfect. As you can no doubt tell, I am a huge fan of this recording. It is one of the best in terms of recording quality I have ever heard."

Listened to the Doobie Brothers Farewell Tour live album in 24-bit/96kHz on Qobuz and will have to say the two panned drum kits sounded really nice. Knowing the level of quality these guys demand there probably was some studio magic involved in the mixdown but overall a great recording.

That's the good part of them having 2 drummers, you've got to give the drums a place in the sound field instead of the more common modern way of panning the whole drum kit left to right.
