Laura, Return of the Grievous Angel is one of my absolute favorites.  I dragged my copy down to the local record store (The Analog Room) and had it cleaned on their. KLAudio disc cleaner and played it the other day through the new Parasound JC3 Jr phono pre-amp that I have on loan.  Can't tell if was the cleaning, there pre-amp or the combination but it sounded fabulous.

Never heard Linda Ronstadt on "Hearts on Fire" before, great album..

How is the live album, is Emmylou on it?

Recently I have been buying half speed mastered mostly from USA, Bruce Cockburn dancing in the dragons jaws, supertramp crime of the century and Puccini madam butterfly, absolutely fantastic playback quality. I have found 180grm vinyl to be of little consequence and some poorly pressed.

Last night I listened to Cornershop's When I Was Born For the 7th Time and LCD Soundsystem's Sound of Silver, both sound amazing on vinyl.

Badura-Skoda on Westminster  WL 5184
Beethoven Sonatas

In the late 1940's Mischa Naida, owner of a NY record store, formed this label and spent the next several years signing much of the talent from Europe in the vacuum left after WWII.  Austrian pianist Paul Badura-Skoda , the Barylli St. Qt., and many other great talents were brought to the attention of the West thy the efforts of Westminster records.  They also were known for high quality pressings compared to their peers of the time.   

The picture is too big, and I don't know how to reduce it... it's here for the curious   www.apesound.de/out/pictures/master/product/1/west5184.jpg

RCA LCT 1118
Rachmaninoff  w/ Stowkowski and Ormandy directing the Philly
Rhapsody/Paganini and the seldom played Concerto#1
The pianist is the composer himself, recorded in 1939 and released on LP in 1954.  Sound is thin on bottom, as per the recording limitations of the day, but the virtuoso technique comes through.

Mercury Living Presence  SR 90222
Pop Overs
Frederick Fennell and the Eastman Rochester Orchestra
Basically a program of short popular works... Finlandia, Rachmaninoff preludes, Debussy, Glinka, Shosty
Kinda a muzak program, but one of the better recorded Mercury lp's.

Beatles White on MFSL
Clearly a higher quality pressing than my old copy bought in 1969.  Lots of things I've never noticed before... bass guitar impact, tuba farts
