Goodwill hunting at my local yesterday.... so many cds you keep sorting through the same ones, over and over again ... but worth it for a few $2 gems.

Found the soundtrack to the movie Kansas City. Music is great, and it's a pretty remarkable recording. Imaging is among the best I've ever heard. A full CD page of notes re the engineering that went into the recording. Very highly recommended!

one of my $2 finds;  Chick Corea  My Spanish Heart

Have a number of his albums, but was still not a big fan.... But I really like this one... and the recording is just fantastic!  One of the better "mike jobs" I've heard in quite a while. You can place the players very very precisely.

Nice surround mix of a great album.   The visuals are weak and the menuing wonky, but it's a great listen.   They really got the vintage spring reverb sound in Tom's vocals right.

It's a great set.  I've picked up a few of these mosaics directly from founder Michael Cuscuna.  I spoke with him a while back and he told me that, back in the day, he put a handful of each of their releases aside for 'retirement planning'.  I think they are getting close to closing down the operation within a few years.

It's a rotten shame....

I have been building Tidal play lists, either be genre or by decade, as I am sure some you may also be doing.  I spent a couple of hours this afternoon scrolling through time; when I got to the contemporary stuff (the last 10 years), I had to back about 10db off the volume control.  Damn compression.
