and great music it is!

The last 2 are from the small Amsterdam audiophile label Sound Liaison,a new label that has gotten some great reviews in the audiophile press and forums.
The 2 albums I think you probably would like from that label are ''Torn'' and a ''Thousand Shades of Blue'',from the Dutch/Portuguese singer Carmen Gomes.
Both albums can be bought straight from the label, as Wav 24/96 Studio Master Downloads.The mp3 preview on the site allready sounds amazing.

All 3 albums are old fashioned one room recordings.
The Sound Liaison label even let the musicians play without headphones, in order to have a better balance,and there by being able to use very little or no compression at all.
Rad Bennett from SoundStage! called ''Thousand Shades of Blue";
and about the Sound Liaison recordings in general;
And HIFI.NL called the music and recording quality of ''Torn''
I read an interview with Sound Liaison founder Frans de Rond,that Sound Liaison split any profits they make 50/50 with the musicians,that I find remarkable after having read many a biography of the jazz greats and how they got i.e.50$ for a recording session(Bill Evans),that later has proven of historical and great financial value.


anyhow these are my suggestions,very informative thread by the way!

I agree, I love those recordings.
I think they are among the best of the best audiophile recordings available.

Listen to every song on these lists, I'm blown away at how good they sound. I just started looking at playlists on grooveshark like this so I'll eventually find more. Incredible what a 320kbps mp3 can do:

Very nice play list indeed.
Grooveshark are getting into trouble with the copyright laws though,and may not exist for long anymore.several countries has blocked the site.

see this article;

I just hope that we on this forum go and get and pay for the original download/CD/SACD,if we do find a tune or an album that we do like.
