As opposed to those of us with big vinyl collections? ;-)

These are some of my faves: ditto with the solo violin suites, especially on original instruments without modern tuning. So much more interesting and rich sonically....
Just fInished Coldplay's Parachutes...next shall be some CPT then some Parking Lot Astronauts.
The Who's - Quadrophenia. Since they coming to my town in Nov. and playing the entire album. End of Oct. and the first of Nov will be exciting. The polka band twice and finish off with the Who. Does not get better than that.

Vinyl certainly has a warmer feel to it. I still have most of my old albums(Blackmoore's Rainbow, Ronnie Montrose's Gamma project stuff etc), I just don't have a turntable to play em on.Smile

Re JS...I always know I'm hearing something special when I get the compulsive urge to throw a chair through a plate glass window, and JS def fits into that category for me. After mangling stringed instruments for over 30yrs now, I just picked up a cheapo chinese cello. My good buddy and riding partner I mentioned in my intro(the one who surreptitiously purchased and had delivered to my home 3 travelogues written by some guy) is also a burned out concert level cellist, and she's been trying to point me in the right direction(that is, when she's not emasculating me for my "schmaltzy" taste in cello pieces).

I really love the incredible range of this instrument and I'll continue to try, but at the moment my level of proficiency produces a sonic fussilade akin to some poor feline being strangled.Dodgy

ROFLMAO. My brother-in-law is also learning the cello -- he's classically trained in piano and flute, and composes as well. When I was up spending a couple of weeks at his place in May, I was, ah, subjected to his practice, and he's about at the same place you are. I was tempted to take my alto recorder with me to jam a bit, but I'm sure the neighbours would have called the police and the humane society to save the animals inside his house. Undecided
