    Emmylou is a true American treasure. My wife and I like to listen to her Spyboy live album on roadtrips.

    I have not revisited this album in a while. I don't remember it being this brightly recorded (I can not attest to the SQ of this Youtube - I only link it for convience. 24/48 avaliable through Quobuz, 16/44 on Tidal):

    A wise member here suggested I ease into posting more by getting involved in the music threads. I really like discovering new music, and threads like this are a great place to stumble upon some awesome stuff. Music is what it’s all about after all, so here’s my first recommendation.

    If you have even a passing interest in jazz/fusion/funk, then give this a listen. If you make it to 4:24, prepare yourself for one of the most incredible keyboard solos ever recorded. Cory Henry goes to a different planet for a few minutes, and we get to go along for the ride! To be honest, the whole band is jam packed with world-class musicians. Hope you enjoy!

    I'd love to hear this album with the compression dialed back. Sounds great(relative term) on my bluetooth running headphones and smashed horribly flat on anything close to hifi.

    Great album by The Manhattan Transfer from 1985: Vocalese. Several of the songs on this album allow you to discriminate qualities of audio gear: speed, busy-ness, layering, vocal placement, etc. I especially like Airegin, Another Night in Tunisia, and Ray's Rockhouse (I like theirs better than Ray Charles'). I've used this album since it came out for auditioning equipment.



    Another album I like a lot for auditioning, and from the same era, is David Benoit's Every Step of the Way. Especially the songs Shibuya Station (great sax parts by Eric Marienthal), The Key To You (piano/vocals), and Remembering What You Said (guitar/piano layers…not to mention a great sax solo).



    These albums are great for musical enjoyment, not just auditioning critically!
