      Those overlapping-content "Cafe Blue"/ "Ever Changing Moods" records are terrific!

      "Paris Match," "Headstart for Happiness"... of course, being a fan of a British band wouldn't be complete without a situation where the UK pressing might sound better but the US album has a fantastic extra song or two (in this case "Solid Bond in Your Heart")!

        • The Time ‎– Ice Cream Castle. 2018 reissue of the 1984 album. Can't believe it took me 35 years to hear and buy this Prince album. damn fine album as well. the reissue sounds excellent as well. Prince in the 80's was so prolific and so brilliant.

            I thought the frontman in the Time was Morris Day, not Prince.??

            Indeed a good pressing and definitely a very good sound from my speakers. And the companion lp Skylarking from the same re issue set is just as good.

            Are you talking about the Skylarking reissue from a few years ago, where they discovered and fixed Todd Rundgren's polarity mistake? The one with the different cover artwork?

        • Khalid ‎– American Teen. 2017 album from the wunderkid is a ripper. Have to wait till end of May for the vinyl to be released on his new album. My daughters got tickets today to see him live in December.

ID:	112958 while I was searching my Lp library for the Fiedler/Parisenne disc, I found a few of these DCC reissues of Everest Classical releases. I decided to give this one a spin and its excellent musically and sonically , much better than the few Everest originals I have on hand. This one is Copland Appalachian Spring. I forgot DCC even did c'lassical or that I even had these.

              I forgot to mention I bought these dccs in the late 1990's.

              The DCC-Everest of Stokowski conducting Tchaikovsky's "Francesca da Rimini" is sorta the Led Zeppelin IV of classical. Meanwhile, I pulled out Mahler 5/ Rudolf Schwartz on original Everest, and was reminded why I own few original Everests... it's too painful hearing good recordings trying unsuccessfully to fight their way through noisy vinyl 😩

                    Prince was brilliant. If only the mid-career stuff had better sound... or maybe there are good-sounding pressings I don't know about? Much of his terrific music (outside the first album or two) has tinny 80s sound that's hard for me to listen through. I remember being blown away by the Sign O' the Times movie in the theater, buying the double LP, and then rarely listening to it... I knew little of audio then but I knew my hand never seemed to reach for that album nor Purple Rain during listening sessions, despite all the fine ideas contained therein.

                    Imo Sign of the Times sounds mighty good. Especially my Euro pressing. You need to remember Prince had a sound that he liked and that was always one with lots of attack and drive with plenty of upper frequency detail.

                    Thanks, I may try again after hearing your take on it. I always heard a difference between the bright-but-very-analog attack and drive of the first couple albums, and the tinny treble of the later stuff. But I'd love to hear The Cross or Take the Place Of Your Man sounding great!

                  Have a look at the Prince vault link, especially the discography - amazing how many projects he had going during the 80's. And yes - there is still the vault with supposedly more albums unreleased than album he actually released when alive. Prince breathed and lived music 24/7. real tragedy he is no longer with us.

                    Very much agree...a talent in the studio and on the stage.

                • UNKLE ‎– The Road: Part I. big fan of Unkle since the beginning and remember when this first came out - Meh, talk about boring. now 18 months later, had a bit more of a listen and starting to appreciate the mellow grooves. It certainly ain't anything like their first 3 albums, but its not bad now.
