CD that can cause serious health issue!
 
Folks,

I am very upset after spending $27.00 cdn plus tax for a CD and it almost blew up my system! It was recorded/mastered/pressed so bad that it should carry subsonic warning in the package. I was only listening at my normal level around 85db or so. Suddently the amps started to clip and the subwoofers clacked violently and really startled me.

There is no way I can get a refund from HMV, do you think?

what cd? and try explaining to the dumbass at HMV what clipping is, and how bad the whole ordeal was to your system and him actually understanding/caring, and ill refund you half of what you payed!

Sorry you can not borrow the CD now
 
I returned it to HMV and got refund/credit note for it.
So I just bought 2 more CDs there before they change their mind.

Watts at Scott's
Charlie Watts and the TENTET

Sophie Milman

for extra $12.60

Watts at Scott's is absolutely terrible. Charlie Watts's behind-the-beat stodginess may be fine for the Stones, but it's horrible for jazz. The man can't swing to save his life. Quick, find a flaw in that one, too! Trade it in for some proper jazz.

They are still sealed up so I will have much better chance to exchange it.

Do you think Riding with the King any good?

SY 15th March 2005 07:14 PM

Haven't heard it yet, but I've not been very fond of anything Clapton has done since about 1972. Now, Stevie Ray Vaughan, that's something in that genre I can listen to again and again.

If you want interesting contemporary big band, check out Toshiko Akioshi/Lew Tabackin's albums. If you want to really go outside, there's always Sun Ra...

I am siding with SY on this one. Riding with the King and Hold On are the only two songs worth listening to in that album.
Try Kirk Fletcher - Shades of Blue and The Chris Cain Band - Cuttin' Loose or any Steve Ray Vaughan if you are looking for good blues. :nod:

Or, if you want a duet album that combines a 'genuine' blues man with modern rockers (Clapton included) I might recommend John Lee Hooker: The Best of Friends or The Healer
