    I am in a music discovery mode! Please share in this thread and pass it foward. We all spend too much time ogling big blue meters, and transducers lets share what really moved us and feeds the meter afdiction What did you last play that transported you past your listening space where you forgot where you were?

    I've been on an electronic kick for a bit ... but the last album that I listened to that transported me "there" was Cowboy Junkies The Trinity Session - which MG turned me onto.

    That one is as live as it gets. Lots of room ambiance.

    Any of Mark Knopfler's solo work is good. Shangra-La is a good place to start. They are all good for different reasons. If you crank the song 5:15AM and don't get goose bumps you have passed on. :)

    Muddy Waters Folk Singer (I prefer the MFSL CD) and Ryan Adams Gold on SACD are also just spectacular in this regards.

    Does watching Jason Bourne Count. If not earlier in the day the music from the ballet Don Quixote, some of Grimethorpe Colliery Brass Band Hymns vol II. and from the Capitol collection: Frank Sinatra. MY C-34 is in the shop so no LP's for a while as I'm to lazy to do a work around with my MP100.

    1-2-17.

    Mel Tormey and Buddy Rich with his big band on a direct to disc LP> Wow.

    Another vote for Sturgill's "A Sailor's Guide to Earth". "High Top Mountain" is also great.

    "Lullabye" by Frank Morgan.

    "Midnight Special" and "The Sermon" by Jimmy Smith--I recently listened to The Sermon on vinyl on a C22 reissue/MC275 and it blew me away!

    Bo Diddley - self titled - Man that record has some sonic brilliance. Jerome just kills it on that one. Perfect. Record.

    Devin Townsend 'Casualties of Cool' on Spotify for an easy audition (which only hints at the sonics of the CD)


    An absolutely brilliant concept album that one critic likened to "haunted Johnny Cash" but I'd call it space country from the distant future. If you only do one track....make it 'Moon'.

    The best I've heard so far is a new release of The Cowboy Junkies - The Trinity Session. You've never heard a version of Sweet Jane like this. It gives me goose bumps. I'm very grateful to damacman for giving me this album.

    Gerry Mulligan, sent me so far into the zone I forgot which album. Doesn't matter, since they're all good. I haven't gotten around to Mulligan and Chet Atkins...saving that for sometime special.

    Glad to do it Mike. You turned me on to the album. Then, you tell me that you gave your only copy to a friend. It seemed only fair to return that favor to you. FWIW, Dan agreed to go halfsies on it with me but I couldn't take Dan's money as he's been so generous as of late helping other folks. So, enjoy it! I bought two copies of it and kept one. QRP did an outstanding job for sure.
