Popov: Symphony No. 1 - Botstein          (11 of 11 found this review helpful)
  Review by beardawgs January 14, 2005

I had unique opportunity to be present at the recording sessions for this SACD last April at Watford Town Hall (north London), arguably one of the best recording venues not only in this country.

Derek & The Dominos: Layla        (4 of 6 found this review helpful)
  Review by mukkachukka January 13, 2005

O.k., I've had just about every version of this album (vinyl, cassette, first CD release, gold CD release, remastered CD release) and with every version I spent numerous hours messing around with my stereo trying to get a decent sound from Layla. Even the gold MFSL CD had so much muddiness and hiss ... more
