James Welch: Music for Christmas - In Concert at Stanford Memorial Church



Wilson Audio LP

The tree is going up, so the musical requests have started coming in from She Who Must be Obeyed.

(All kidding aside, she puts up with a lot of whatever I want the listen to for most of the year, so when she starts looking for Christmas music it is only fair to oblige.)

As I said in an earlier post, most of my audiophile vinyl I picked up for next to nothing when the record store were dumping their vinyl stock to make room for CDs in the mid 80s.  I certainly wouldn't own it if I had to pay the collector prices they get for it now.   :roll:

Since I mounted the Benz Micro Cart I have been going through the vinyl racks and pulling out things that have not seen daylight for a while. It's been fun to revisit things I have not heard for many years.

Hi all.
Believe me or not, but my very first vinyl when I was 15 years old
(Wooooo that's a long time ago, how about 57 years)
was Laurindo Almeida a gift from my godmother and that
was the start of me loving guitar playing...

One of my better sounding audiophile LPs is a Direct to Disc album that Laurindo did for Crystal Clear Records called Virtuoso Guitar.

It can be found for very reasonable prices ( under $10 US) on Discogs.

If you don't have this you should definitely grab a copy when you see it.

https://www.discogs.com/Laurindo-Almeida-Virtuoso-Guitar/release/1670776

(Just a warning, it is cut at 45 RPM, so if you have a TT that plays at 33 only, you're out of luck on this one)

There is a budget CD pressing of this album floating around out there on the Laserlight label. But while the music is still good, the SQ is nowhere near that of the D2D LP.
