Lovely Recordings Hosted by Reed Hellmann (Part 3)

This list is a bit random. There are a couple soundtracks, a broadway play soundtrack, and a mix of other genres. They can all be purchased as downloads from Acoustic Sounds. I use several of them when testing out a system change.

John Williams: Jurassic Park - 20th Anniversary (Geffen, 2013)
The soundtrack of the original Jurassic park treats with dynamic swings. My favorite track is "Journey to the Island". I really crank it up on that track.

Jacintha: Here's to Ben: A Vocal Tribute to Ben Webster First Impression Music, 1998)
This album is super pristine like almost no other. It's one of those albums that just seems to sound great no matter what it's played on. "Over the Rainbow" on this album is breathtaking.

The Alan Parsons Project: I Robot (Arista/Legacy, 1977)
I have been an Alan Parsons fan forever it seems. I played "Turn of a Friendly Card", another album of their's, so many times I can't even look at the cover anymore. I Robot, however, never seems to get old. My favorite track is "The Voice".

Sting: Last Ship (Universal Music LLC, 2013)
This is the soundtrack of a Broadway play that Sting wrote and performs on this album. His idea for this was inspired by where he grew up. The guy is so talented, and this album shows a bit of a different side his that talent.

Nat "King" Cole: The Very Thought of You (Capitol Records, 1958)
Listening to this album makes you scratch your head. Why do we no longer have recordings like this in this day & age? He is in the room with you.

Various: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack - The Hot Spot (Antilles, 1990)
You can see the talented folks on the cover. John Lee Hooker is a favorite of mine, and is the staple performer on the album.

Linda Ronstadt: What's New (Asylum, 1983)
This is quite the departure for her. She sings more easy listening type classics with an orchestral accompaniment. The high res version of this album bests the already fabulous CD version in almost every way.

Available from Acoustic Sounds

Ryan Adams: Love is Hell (Lost Highway, 2004)
I'm a so-so fan of Ryan Adams. I really like this album, however. "I See Monsters" is my favorite track, but I always listen to the whole album. The recording quality of most of the songs is superb.
