Charles,

i always wondered who that marvelous singer in the 5th element movie was. Thank you! I liked her singing very much, also when it went weird and techno.

jackinnj,

if you admire Dietrich Fischer Dieskau, agreed, so do i. Ever stepped into recordings of Hans Hotter ? now he is really something. And his Winterreise is my preferred one as i am not alltoomuch into suicidal lyrics and moods and he "tells it like a tale", he is narrator and not the protagonist himself like Fischer-Dieskau is (with utter emotional intensity). However, his control of the voice, his speech understandability and also his vocal beauty is outstanding.
Concerning the latter, he is on one level with Enrico Caruso and Benjamino Gigli IMO.

Ahhh, Enrico Caruso!

If i can suggest a singer in general - Tom Waits

I like his recordings like Bone Machine where it
gives every system a hard time.

Also Anne Clarks - Unstill Life sounds unbalanced very
quick on wrong systems.

Just my thoughts.

Scored 3 Kate Bush albums today (for $2 USD). Another excellent female vocalist that seems to have disappeared from the public eye.

Yes, I think she is great too

Another great female voice is Kristin Hersh on her CD Hips and makers.

"Per - You might know this one; "Famous blue raincoat" by Jennifer Warnes."

Dan, this one was a popular high-end system demo disk 10 years ago or so.
There are some really delightful female, male low low baritone vocals, BIG bass and nice highs on this cd.
Well worth the investment - and your girlfriend will like it too !.
The Chesky Drum Record (Cd) and The Chesky Test Record (Cd) are worthwhile too.

Eric.
