There are a few different versions of these sessions around. The HDTT one has a less attractive song selection, IMO.

HDTT often has an album with a different song selection from the known versions of the release. Not sure why this is. Maybe because they are sometimes remastering tapes that were once released to the market and those were a different release from the more well known LP version. Or maybe they simply can't get the rights to all the songs for some reason. Or maybe the tapes they have access to aren't identical to the original master release. 


Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>CAPS IV Pipeline Server + Sonore 12V PS>RPi4 (dietpi)>Kii Control>Audiolense DRC>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.
 

Secondary Listening: (1) CAPS Pipeline>Matrix Element i Streamer/DAC (XLR)>Schiit Freya>Kii Three .(2) CAPS>ifi iDAC SPDIF>Kii Control.

Bedroom: SBTouch to Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Setup. Living Room/Kitchen: RB Pi 3B+ running RoPieee to a pair of Morel Hogtalare.

From Van Morrison to David Gray to Foy Vance...quite the lineage!  I'm listening to a lot of Foy these days...much needed SoulFi (as my buddy Mario calls it)  Thanks for the prod, just dropped the needle on this one!

Not sure either. I do have this recording on a 1980’s Japanese pressing and the HDDT tape transfer. Prefer the tape for SQ.

Just started listening, I'm really curious what the trio sounds like with Joe Lovano who is a very different saxophonist from Joakim Milder with whom they recorded in 2014 (24-88).

I didn't like this one: An Analogue Productions remaster of Roger Waters' Amused to Death. It sounds decent, however both the music and sound effects turned me off, I was not amused. BTW I like Waters' previous band: Pink Floyd. Got it on sale for half price at Acoustic Sounds, it's still on sale.  I got a lot of great Jazz, Classical and Rock SACDs in this sale. So overall I did great.

 

I have now listened three times to Roger Waters' Amused to Death and it's growing on me so I think I will keep it. Still not amused though.

 

Listened to before signing onto the internet today.

I have dementia. I save all my posts in a text file I call Forums.  I do a search in that file to find out what I said or did in the past.

 

I still love music.
