John Lennon Signature Box Set

Excited since I do have all the MFSL CDs. Didn't check out the johnlennon.com universe stuff yet but curious about it since it is limited to the box set to have access.

Just ordered: Amazon.com: West Coast Seattle Boy:The Jimi Hendrix Anthology (8LP Box): Jimi Hendirx: Music For the current price of $66 (free shipping), figured I couldn't go wrong (just a little over $8 per platter).

Looking forward to Springsteen's "The Promise" box set (Darkness on the Edge of Town story) and Dylan's "The Witmark Demos - 1962-1964 (Bootleg Vol 9) as well.

recently been on a minot HD Tracks bender

Paul McCartney Band on the Run 24/96, great sound this recording has never sounded better

John Coltrane A love Supreme 24/96, to me the definitive digital release of this recording, wide soundstage very open and dynamic. You'll immediately hear the difference between the CD and this version

John Coltrane Africa Brass 24/96 this is a first time buy for me on this release so nothing to compare it to but it does sound great

Mingus The Black Saint and the Sinner, 24/96 again a new one for me but this is a sonic wonder the different instruments combine with the recording to really take you out of your normal space

Tom Petty Damn the Torpedoes 24/96 better than the CD but not by miles but still a worthy purchase great sound and plenty of extras

jp get the Impulse! 45 rpm of A Love Supreme. One of my favorite albums and it it sounds killer on 45 rpm, really one of my favorite reissues with the thick gatefold, not the usual crap from AP

Miles Davis' Kind of Blue and Jeff Buckley's Grace 180g Columbia Legacy 2010 reissue LPs (scheduled to come out tomorrow). Amazon had really good prices on these the other day. Figured I might as well grab them for my future turntable....

I've got a few od the impulse releases from AP and I agree they are great including ALS but I really do like the HD tracks 24/96 stuff as well. I have not directly compared the two though.

Ugh the All Things Must Pass vinyl kinda sucks and IMHO is not worth the $60 admission price. My copy is noisy and joy as good sounding as the hires release.

That sucks :( I have it preordered from amazon UK I guess I won't be disappointed if my order is canceled. I agree the high res sounds so good.

You get in on RRs sale or order from HDtracks? If you already have how is Crown Imperial? Been considering.

I finally got an opportunity to listen to Crown Imperial. I enjoy organ music. HDCD is a good recording, and the music is more orchestral than organ. A nice listen.

Thanks for the Crown Imperial feedback. That and Organ Sensation by Felix Hell I'm debating between HRx and HDCD. RR sale v. Amazon GC. Hmmm.

I know, I know, its the 2009 mixes, but for $75 I thought it would be cool to have different mixes of these early records. I listened to side A of Foxtrot a couple nights ago, and it was a fun listening experience. Some new clarity to certain instruments and sounds, but I think the bass impact, particularly the intense bass moments (think Can Utility and the Coastliners!) is less intense. This sounds like a flaky sonic description, but it felt more like I was analyzing the recording then emotionally participating in it. Fun, yes, but I wasn't rocking out and feeling spiritually connected to the songs.

I'll have to do more listening, but so far for a Genesis fan I think its a worthwhile purchase at its price, so long as you can accept remixes in general.
