          It needs housecleaning, the list looks anemic just 3 years on (the list is older) lots of recordings to add and others to delete that are ho-hum on my present system.

            Ken, its posted under the sub-forum sonic 'Sonic Splendry' Myles can correct me if i'm wrong but--for me--they're mainly recordings with sonic merits that can often trounce the music. aka demo music, if you like. like junk food food, when called upon it hits the spot when nothing else can. but I try to list stuff which also has musical merit.

            I'd love to see Laser's list!!

            Got it. I was having a senior moment.

            I never really thought of a list like this. If I was to compile one it would probably scare everyone away. 😀
