  • 25 best live records of all time

    Week 1

    Well, I'm jumping back in with another list, and this could be the best I've found since the '50 Most Influential' that I started about 5 years ago and faithfully posted about each week until all 50 had been mentioned. It created a fair amount of interest and debate, this will last half that time, but I hope it helps to create a little excitement...well, let's say interest...around here. Here goes nothing...

    25 The Allman Brothers Band - At the Fillmore East - haven’t had your fill of “Whipping Post,” you didn’t grow up on FM Radio. Southern Rock never quite reached its potential--unless you consider Molly Hatchet transcendent--but its roots were sharp and shaggy. Had Duane Allman lived, would he have had the power to re-route its course? As the mystics say, who knows?

    This remains one of my personal favourites; Hot 'Lanta, In Memory of Elizabeth Reed...great stuff all. What say you?

      Sorry guys, that was me trying out something - I wanted to promote a thread to an article, and picked Bernd's 25 Live Albums one.
      Apologies for the confusion

    Well the purists might argue that an injection of anything is a detraction from the original but I know what you mean - perhaps it is when a signal is

    Actually, perhaps its not that passives suck the life out of music. After all they're "passive" and therefore should have little or no affect.

    I concur with passives sucking the life out of music.

    A few years ago I had a similar search for a new pre. Tried loads of options but ended

    I would hold judgement until you heard the Cary retubed and or rebiased. However, having said that my SP9 albeit a hybrid did not show any changes in

    It was a brief demo of records. A/B'd three or four songs.

    The tubes on the Cary have never been changed and it has been on for a decade,

    I was looking for an SP8 when I ended up buying the SP9 - the SP8 is full tube and the SP9 is a hybrid .. but neither sound "tubey" they are

    This may be the most viable option. Reflecting on my experience with the Cary, it added a lot that the NVA lacked, but it very very obviously added coloration

    I am not surprised - there is a certain something missing with every passive pre I have tried .. it is as though the life is sucked out of the music ..

    I have been reading a lot on the Tortuga Audio product. There's also a cheaper kit form of it.

    But I'll look also for TVCs.
