It's a studio recording, so there  is not a whole lot of room ambience, but that aside it's a nice clear sounding recording.

I got the best compliment while playing this album today. I had a contractor doing some repairs to my chimney and at one point he asked if he could plug in the charger for his cordless drill. I told him sure, there was a plug right inside the front door in the living room. He walked into the house and his jaw dropped and he said"Holy cr@p!, that's a stereo??? I though for sure you had some guy practicing with his sax in here!!!"  :shock:

He made my day.   8)

Hi tmazz.
That's quite a compliment your contractor did on your system.
I'm sure it made your day.

Nice music on a cheap, flimsy mid 70's DGG vinyl
“But I don't want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked. “Oh, you can't help that,” said the Cat: “we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.”
Gear: a bunch of second hand stuff and kits.

Hi S Clark.
My very first vinyl was one from Laurindo Almeida.
A gift from my Godmother when I was 15 years old,
that's 57 years ago, still got it in a box ready to follow me to Canada.
Unfortunately a little (Read lots) scratches...
He's the one that made me love guitars (Acoustic) and for the (Electric0 guitars
it's the Ventures.
