BTW:
I think nobody has mentioned the Hadouk Trio; the albums "Utopies" and "Live at FIP" are very well done, although a little bit bassy at times.

Seconded. Wonderfully lush and rich soundscapes; fantastic recording. Wish I had more like it in my collection.

ABBAs 'The Visitors' preceded 'Brothers In Arms' by 3 or 4 years in being digitally recorded, mixed and mastered (DDD).
The first digitally recorded non-classical album was Ry Cooders 'Bop 'Til You Drop' album from '79.

I always thought the first digitally recorded 'pop' album was Ry Cooder's
'Bop 'Til You Drop'
Correct me if I'm wrong, but that was the blurb at the time.


When I sold hi-fi between 74 and 79 my favourite demo's were;
Frank Zappa - 'One Size Fits All' (particularly the track 'Sofa No. 1')
This album also comes up great on the Au20 Gold re-issue
Edgard Varese - 'Integrales' Nonesuch label (CD also good)
Alan Parsons Project - 'I, Robot'
Silver Convention (not my cup'o'tea, but impressed the disco boys)

and of course the usual Lincoln Mayorga poop...and the Thelma Houston album etc.

edit: oop! sorry Chuck...I didn't see you'd already mentioned the Ry cooder LOL

Yeah...Bob Ludwig for mastering....Ken Scott for production

Bob Ludwig did a great job on remastering Zappa's "Roxy & Elsewhere"
I reckon Bob Stone (who helped Frank remaster most of the other albums) has a tin ear

Ken Scott's great...have a listen to the Tubes 'Young and Rich'
(particularly Prairie Prince's drum sound on the title track)
the CD is dissapointing...get the vinyl

BTW Ken Scott turned up on the Gearslutz forum a few years back..
it's great to be able to praise these geniuses in person sometimes..
isn't the internet wonderful!

Duke Ellington - Blues in Orbit (MFSL)
Poncho Sanchez - Outa Sight (JVC Victor)
