    Im not familiar with this one, but she has such a solid catalog I wouldnt be concerned. Any time an album is given the aftermarket upgrade treatment, it usually because it has a following ,or a cult status, so resale should be easy..

    Morning, all.

    Well, I have my coffee and picked out some "day off" music.

    Douglas Guest playing the Westminster Abbey organ. The organ was first used for the coronation of George VI in 1937. This recording is from around 1963.

    Time for The Classical Coffee Hour.
    J.S. Bach - Brandenburg Concerto's 1 - 6.
    Yehudi Menuhin conducting The Bath Festival Orchestra

    Playing this on the big ol' Farnsworth BC-82.
    Classical and Jazz both sound almost better to me on the Farnsworth because it focuses the sound more and the big wooden case resonates, allowing the music to sound warmer and fuller at low volumes.

    Was this from the college library, Kev? That's the only way I would think it would end up with F 37 Sharpied on it.

    Yes, it was. Unfortunately, time and curators have not been kind to many of the sleeves. However, most of the LPs look as though they have rarely been played.

    Good morning friends. Do me a favor and please re-read my post on the previous page to our friend Zebra03. I made some edits and clarifications. I would be very pleased to know your thoughts.

    Thank You.

    On the subject of mastering, I'm going with "If Blitz says it, then it must be true." I'm not knowledgeable enough about the processes involved to have an opinion. I know some recordings sound like crap, but couldn't point out why.

    I will certainly attest. At least in regards to the two 24K Gold Remasters that I've heard. The clarity and warmth are off the chart. I still prefer the vinyl experience, because it is an experience like nothing else. But if all my vinyl sounded like MFSL, and Ultra Disc 24K Gold CD's I'd be one happy camper.

    EDIT: Went back and re-read your post. That Deep Purple: Machine Head remaster is impressive. It's something that I have on CD-R and is tucked into a notebook, so it rarely gets my attention when looking for something to play.

    I'll do it for sure. Give me some time to get it prepared as his catalog is massive.

    That';s actually a pretty well-done album. Good pickup!
