I was recently thumbing through my CD collection and ran across some disks that I hadn't listened to in a long time ..... some of them for several
years.   It is amazing how much better some of these disks sound since  my introduction to SET vacuum tube amplifiers and high efficiency loudspeakers.  There is a little bit of everything on this page ..... enjoy !

Baby Wants to Boogie
A Collection of New Folk Music
The lovely voice of Margo Timmins.
This is one of their best albums.
All tracks are good, I especially like 4 and 5.
When I am in the mood for some chamber music, this is it. Flute, harpsichord and cello.
Tracks 12 and 13 are very good.
This CD should probably be on the blues page, but what the heck,  Blues with a tuba for the bass instrument. Tracks 5, 6 and 10 are very nice.
Windham Hill compilation from 1989.
Some of it is pretty good and well recorded.  I especially like tracks 1, 4, 6, 7 and 11

Something Constructive
Some nice acoustic strings and vocals. Tracks 3, 4, 5, 7, 8
I love Nanci's voice, she sometimes sounds like a little girl.  This is one of her best.  Tracks 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 13
Honest vocals and some great instrumentation. Tracks 1, 3, 4, 6, 8 and 10 are extra good.
I'm not a huge fan of electric keyboard / synthesizer music, but this is better than most.  I like tracks 3, 6 and 9.

Music for the Queen of Scots
A typical well recorded Mapleshade disk.  Very nice voice and piano.  Tracks 3, 6 and 9 are very good.
Lou's tribute album to his father, who died of lung cancer.  Very thought provoking.  Tracks 3 and 4 are great,  # 4 is demo quality on a good audio system.

This lady has a very interesting and different voice, recorded on the Chesky label. Tracks 1, 3, 4, 8, 10, 11, 12 and 14 are my favorites.
A quartet of recorder artists.  They play instruments from the tiniest recorder to bass versions as tall as the artist.  At times the sound resembles a pipe organ. Tracks 6, 13, 14, 15, 16, 20, 21, 22, 28, 30, 31
