These are all good suggestions.

I guess I'm kinda boring - I find myself (still) enjoying the earlier releases by Flim and the BBs to help evaluate sonics.

I agree with the comment about MA recordings.

I also like Angela Bofill's first solo release "Angie". I take it to shops with me and the dealers always try to take it from me

LPs: Weather Report - "Heavy Weather", Roxy Music - "Avalon". 70's early 80's Pink Floyd albums are generally well recorded...

Everything from Dire Straits, Björk and Goldfrapp.

(But note these are IMO audiophile recordings which I often find are not good for testing; Dire Straits for example I find sound good on a lot system whereas especially Goldfrapp, Björk might be a killer for some; but that´s probably not the point anyway)

Stevie Ray Vaughn "The sky is crying" mmmmh "little wing"
which is suggested
here with some other nice recordings as well.

Look at >Records 2die4<
http://www.stereophile.com/records2die4/

The following CDs are perfectly recorded. You can find Kari Bremnes performing in english some songs on the second CD. For the first time I feel that she knows what she sings, like till now in norwegian.
The Yuri Honing Trio "Star Tracks" - Jazz in Motion 9920102
Tom Russel "The Man From God Knows Where - Kirkelig Kulturverksted FXD 209

We can listen as well.
The problem is that it's hard to find in the local stores some really good music. Most of the time one runs into commercial junk.

An interesting material is the one that makes you listen to the same CD over and over again.
That's hard for me. Very hard I would say.
I listem to my albums over and over, but not in a short time period.

Wanted to mention his "Köln concert" but didn´t as it is live and a bit noisy but what a great piano player!
Get a rush on that album too.
Will have to check yours out as well.

I think that the following equation is simply true.

KKV + artists = The Highest Quality

KKV - Kirkelig Kulturverksted label (Norway) http://www.kkv.no
artists - Kari Bremnes, Jan Garbarek, Mari Boine, Elisabeth Karsten, Knut Reyesrud and more...
THQ - I mean recordings and performance

Does "Nils Petter Molvaer" happen to be with this label?
Highly recommended as well! (Miles Davis like trumpet with drum and bass )
