"Spanish Harlem" by Rebecca Pidgeon. This is an amazing track for female vocals. Simple background music allows for focus on details.

...and some of the original orchestral music from Star Wars is also very good.
I use Spanish Harlem a lot when I'm demonstrating the car install to someone, it took me using 25 square feet of sound deadener on each door panel to keep them from rattling any on that track If you have a rattle in your car, that song will find it...

I bought the "Revenge of the Sith" soundtrack recently - thought the movie sucked, but the soundtrack is very good.

Hello everyone, great thread.

Does anyone know of a song/recording which has both a piano and/or organ playing in the sub 30-Hz range and a violin playing in the 3 kHz+ range?

I agree with each suggestion for female vocalists, but would mention one often overlooked. Phoebe Snow (real last name Laub), eponymous, 1974. She's unique enough, perhaps, to qualify as an "acquired taste", but if you get it... wow. My favorite test album for female vocal.

Aphex Twin - Windowlicker

Oasis - Hindu Times (the 20 seconds before he starts singing)

Antonín Dvorák - String Quartet No.12 in F major, Op.96 "American"

And finally, Neil Young's "Cortez the Killer" from the Decade album. If this one is convincing me, everything is fine.

I hate to say it... oh heck with it, I didn't really like them, but now I've very much got into their music: Goldfrapp. Any of their three albums. Ironically, Black Cherry, the one that most people seem to see as their masterpiece, I still don't like as much as Felt Mountain or Supernature. And they know how to record music -it's very well produced indeed. The SACD of Supernature is of reference recording standard.

Default Diana Krall

Diana Krall's When I Look in Your Eyes is absolutely magical!

Yes, it is, it is one of the best if not the best Diana's.
Another one is "Love scenes".
Magical is the word.
JLH 2005, Cyrus and so on...

Dire Straits - Your Lastest Trick
Hi nando,

"Your latest trick" one of my favourite test tracks along with their "Once upon a time in the West".
As you said both versions are recorded very well.

But the CD that I use to get my first impression of a system is Greatest Hits - Scorpions. It's got the Drums, cymbals, high vocals and bass guitar along with super crisp guitar riffs all in good measure.
