Re: The best sounding DVD-Audio title of all time - Art Pepper Meets The Rhythm Secti
I agree about this being the best demo ever.
I cite this as a point to my buddy Mark Waldrep at AIX records. His argument is 1957 recordings can only sound as good as the equipment and today's equipment is WAY better.
Mark's argument is a strong one and he makes FINE music that we all need to own. My argument is - LISTEN to this 1957 DVD-Audio title and tell me that the music doesn't move you and the audio BLOW YOU AWAY.
As Dick Clark once said "if its in the grooves - its in the grooves" The good news is at least theoretically - we can make archival music sound great. Too bad studios aren't interested in selling it to us.
