The two that have surfaced for me are Joni Mitchell and Stevie Ray Vaughan. I liked their music before but not enough to purchase any of their recordings. Going through a box of used CDs I picked up a while back and there was a CD from both Joni and Stevie which are quickly becoming favorites. Both are outstanding recordings. Hearing Joini Mitchell’s voice and Stevie Ray Vaughan’s guitar for the first time through a high end gig is absolutely blowing me away! Definitely have gained a much greater appreciation for both artists listening to them on a resolving system.
Atta boy Gary, I believe that you will find Stevie Ray is an artist for audiophile detailed listening.
Believe it or not, The Beatles.
A lot more going on with a lot of their recordings then I realized.
Probably not a lot of others would come up with this, but for me; Earth, Wind, & Fire. Not only for their performances, but the quality of the recording and mastering.
A lot of what makes music more interesting is obscured on low resolution systems. Minute details, textures, spacial cues, and micro dynamics come to life when you assemble a quality system, giving you more insight into the music and the performers.
Have to agree. My brother is a big EWF fan and he loaned me a box set once. Tremendous fidelity.
I don’t really see them mentioned on these boards, at least not that I’ve noticed.
To be honest, more than 80% of my music collection’s artists gain from that and to more than 50% I really cherish, I’d not even listen without the intensity of a good setup. All in a sense of „there’s so much more music to explore if it reaches you as somehow similar to played live“.
