Clark Bradshaw request - song list
I should know it by heart after all-day listening, but would you mind posting or emailing me the song list from Sunday's Lex DIY?
Also there was another track that got played a few times. I cannot remember who had the CD, but the artist was BD & the Flips, or something like that... do you remember the correct name??
And thanks again for all your hard work in organizing the event!! I hope you can do it again next year.
Some of the CD tracks
Most of the test tracks were from CDs in my collection. Most of these hese are probably out of print, but if anyone would like to obtain a copy of the CD that contains one of the tracks you liked, let me know which track(s). I've discovered that most of the CDs are available used on Amozon, and usually for only a few $.
The breathy sax track is a Paul Desmond version of "Skylark", which is on the Columbia Contemporary Jazz Sampler Vol 1. Desmond recorded it for his own CD as well, and I think the same track is also the Columbia CD called "The Best of Paul Desmond". That one appears to be in print but used copies are also avail
Fanfare for the Common Man is on a CD called Aaron Copeland's Greatest Hits recorded by Ormandy/Philadephia
Bach Toccota and Fugue in D minor is from a very well recorded Peter Hurford CD that includes some other really famous organ pieces as well It's also avail new or used on Amazon under the title "Organ Spectacular"
In the 80s there was a contest to see which classical recording company could record the 1812 Overture cannons with the greatest force. What you heard was Telarc's recording with the Cincinnati orchestra under Maazel. There are several Telarc sampler disks and many have tracks that are great speaker tests.
Re:-song list: Flim and the BB's
Flim and the BB's comes to mind. I think I have a CD from them packed up somewhere.
Sorry that I couldn't make it up there this year. If you do it again next year, I should be in a better position.
Full disk list
Here's the full list. I was really happy most people seemed to like the Richard Thompson track. For acoustic stuff, he's my favorite.
