Taj Majal - The Real Thing. Not really an audiophile recording, but ya gotta love the sound of the four man horn section all playing tuba!

Bela Fleck & the Flecktones - Live Art.

Subtle stuff, but a lovely live recording at the Royal Festival Hall 20 years ago.

The better your system, the more you will hear of the live event. There is a lot of detail hidden on this CD.

+ I love the music. =)

It's a 2 CD, EMI 7243 4 99390 2 8 which is a UK version I bought on US eBay.

There are 4 versions that I'm aware of.... EMI & Chrysalis.

Absolutely! I have the standard CD as well as the japanese Gold CD.

I saw the trio when they toured back in 1981 at the Beverly Theater in Los Angeles. Excellent concert.

PM, are you sure this is a live album? Maybe you meant Delicate Sound Of Thunder or Pulse.

I always look for the DVD video of live performances fist. Most DVDs less than ten years old will have 24 bit / 48K audio tracks = usually better than any of the studio work on CD (16 bit) and always superior to the live CDs because of that 16 bit compression.

Speakin' of Pink: Roger Water's "The Wall / Live in Berlin" is quite good. ( http://www.amazon.com/Roger-Waters-W...dp/B00009VTYE/ ) with huge array of guest players inc. The Band (sans Robbie) and Van Morrison (!) ... and you won't really appreciate Cindi Lauper until you see her in this performance = a real spark plug.

(Us old timers appreciate that this performance was done about 9 months after the Berlin Wall came down, right in no man's land! = >> 500,000 attended)
