  Mainly a progressive rock (Yes/Genesis/King Crimson), classic rock (The Who/Kinks/Bob Dylan), and jazz (Coltrane/Miles/Dolphy/Rollins/Montgomery) fan. But I do appreciate the works of Beethoven, Sibelius, RV Williams, Nielsen, Stravinsky as well as a number of other classical composers.

Big Brother & the Holding Company: Cheap Thrills      (3 of 3 found this review helpful)
  February 1, 2005

It can be argued that this disc contains THE finest vocal performance by a female rock singer. There has never been a rock singer since Janis Joplin who is as ELECTRIFYING as she herself was. And this is probably the crown jewel of her catalogue. A mixture of 1968 studio and live performances, Cheap ... more
Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring, Nielsen: Symphony No. 5 - Paavo Järvi          (5 of 10 found this review helpful)

As Carl Nielsen is my favorite classical composer, this SACD was a no-brainer for me. Especially since this is the only SACD (apart from the EXPENSIVE Japanese SACD of his opera Maskarade) of his compositions on the market. What's up with that?!? Anyway, this is my favorite classical SACD I have ... more

Here it is, the ULTIMATE Nick Drake album. Although he only released three albums in his lifetime, Drake has inspired countless songwriters and musicians (especially those in the alternative rock camp). "Pink Moon" is the song that catapulted him into the national spotlight a few years ago, as ... more
RPWL: World Through My Eyes        (3 of 3 found this review helpful)

Progressive rock fans rejoice! Here's another fantastic 5.1 SACD to add to your collection! RPWL is a young German prog-rock band who have been compared at times to Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree, and Marillion. And, truth be told, they do sound like a cross between all three of those bands with a ... more

Got a great deal on this one. Only $5.99 (shipping included) at This is only the 7th classical SACD I have purchased or heard and it is a winner! VERY warm sound! The only other classical releases I have bought have been on Telarc and Naxos. While I still prefer the bright, crisp, ... more

I'm sure many of you know of the $5.99 (shipping included) deals at, but I thought I would just post this for those who don't. Basically, it's a monthly subscription service. You add CDs (or SACDs) to your queue and they send you the CD at the top of your queue once a month. Great deal for only $5.99. I joined on a Friday and got ... more
