Playing the first SACD ~



For me, Yes’ most unappreciated album from their ‘classic’ period. It took me some time to fully appreciate it the way I did say Close to the Edge or Relayer, but it rewards a listener who is patient I believe.

Yeah, I just wish Hackett would get rid of Nad Sylvan. I’m not particularly keen on his voice.

I agree, MI!

I'd be okay with an album of all instrumental tunes from Hackett; one disc covering his solo career and the other devoted to Genesis material.

Tales is my favorite Yes album.  :)

I loved it from my first listen.  Most Yes fans do say that a patient approach is worth it.  Their classic period albums are all so great.  8)

That would be great, indeed.

After Relayer, Topographic Oceans is my next favourite.

A nice twofer retrospective of the master of the Bossa Nova, Gaetano Veloso

With respect, he is not "the" master of Bossa Nova; there are many masters of the various styles of Brazilian music.  If Veloso is the master of anything it would be Tropicália.  Tom Jobim would be more appropriately the first among the masters of BN.  Veloso never intrigued me, not nearly as much as his sister Maria BethâniaGilberto Gil another Tropicalismo, might also be a stronger artist than Veloso.

But enjoy your collection - to each his own.   ;)

Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet - Landfall (2018)

Be interested in your thoughts on this one, Simon. Heard a few brief samples and it sounds interesting indeed.
