Why not? Well you get where I am going…
So… think of your top 10 discs you love for music… now your top 20… 30 …50… Where/when on the list do the “audiophile” discs start creeping in?
For me, it is only the 50s-60s Jazz recorded by Rudy van Gelder and others or other great studio works of the time… Brubeck, Miles, et al… I have a Chesky re-release of an anlog-recorded Beethonvan’s 9th that is great. Other than that… pretty slim stuff.
Another talking point: Beatles Abbey Road is one of those discs I refuse to listen to unless I can hear it start to end… well recorded but not an audiophile disc.
So… why so few audiophile discs in your top 50? Any audiophile discs that can induce tears?
