Glorious Sunday morning here in Denver - with rolling the clocks back last night we all have an extra hour of weekend.

I'm spending that time listening to some of the vinyl I'd picked up at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest. Nat King Cole and his Trio "After Midnight" and The Anthony Wilson Nonet "Power of Nine" so far. Both are EXCELLENT!

What are you listening to this morning?

Madeleine Peyroux and Billie Holiday...

Tim,

Good morning... :)
Great Thread!

This Sunday morning, beautiful Madeleine's - Half The Perfect World and Billy's - Lady Day CD's.

Last night I listen to Queen's - A Night At The Opera the DTS 5.1 CD, which was incredible on my Logans in HT system. :D

A day late, but nevertheless worth mentioning.
Yesterday morning I enjoyed the extra hour by listening to Metallica's self named album "Metallica" recorded in DVD-A format. This is the "black album," which was their breakthrouh, and indeed it is a masterpiece. I usually don't listen to heavy metal too much (especially early in the morning) but I have to concede that it is a noteworthy recording. Almost every song is a classic by now.
Oddly enough, I preferred the PCM 2 channel audio stream over the surround sound. But that's a different topic which I will leave alone at this moment.

I try to get in one album before the 10:00am game and another between the end of the 1:00pm game and the start of the 5:00pm game. I usually only get in one side in the afternoon.

Dave,

That's marvelous. I love Madeleine, she must sound so much better on vinyl. :eek: I hope to own her on vinyl someday, down the road, during my future up-grades, I mean "Joeyitis"... :D

Robin and Dave, I just picked this same album up at the RMAF on the MoFi vinyl too. Very good! I believe that MoFi will also be pressing the new one soon as well!

Long Live Vinyl!

Higher Quality Vinyl Recordings...

Tim,

I am not familiar with MoFi? :confused: Are MoFi records higher quality vinyl pressings, thicker vinyl etc.?

Robin,

MoFi is short for Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs, an audiophile recording company. They re-issue classic releases in vinyl, as well as cd and sacd. They start from the original master tapes and are famous for their incredible re-mastering techniques that bring out the full depth and detail from the original recording. Here is the link:

Yep, Rich has hit it on the nose.

Mobile Fidelity was out of business for several years and were recently ressurected by our friends at Music Direct.

I have a number of older MoFi releases, including some of their UHQR's. Their new stuff is every bit as good - at least the vinyl and SACD's are, don't have any of their recent redbook CD releases, but have heard good things from others here, Cherian I think mentiond them in a few places.
