Here's some good blues & rock that I have rediscovered since the Empire:
- Casandra Wilson - Come On In My Kitchen - Blue Light till Dawn
- Eva Cassidy - Take Me to the River - Live at Blues Alley
- Stevie Ray Vaughan - Tin Pan Alley - The Real Deal - wow, one of my favorite songs now
- Talking Heads - Swamp - Stop Making Sense (the whole album is bass happy and fantastic)
- U2 - With or Without You - The Joshua Tree
- Jeff Beck - A Day in the Life - Live at Ronnie Scott's
Just watched "Queen rock Montreal & Live Aid" dvd last night, a fantastic performance. Freddie Mercury's vocals are really impressive, he can cover 4 octaves, and their drummer is superb. Anyways the song "Get Down Make Love" rattled my walls! Has a bit of the psychodelic/light show performance in it, its amazing.
I don't know if the youtube bitstream has the low bass performance/output like the dvd (digital DTS) does as it doesn't sound like it on my pc speakers, but here is the link anyways:
Ok, this song is nuts on the sub. Don't start off playing this at high level and I recommend putting your AVR at -20. This outputs 100db of pure room shaking bass, insane at this volume. It all starts at around 20s in.
