I take a somewhat jaundiced view to audiophile artistry

I listened briefly to Ms Stanley and she is indeed a sweet singer, backed by bunch of fine session-men. I have to say that I look back with some regret regarding almost all of the "audiophile" LP's I bought with my hard-earned dollars in the 80's. Take for example the Sheffield Labs stuff: off-the-main-track orchestras doing classical schlagers, big bands warming-over the hits of the swing era, etc etc. Terrific sounding discs but they've not withstood the test of time. Who the hell were Amanda McBroom and/or Lincoln Mayorga anyway!? Who cares?

In hindsight, I see I was "using the music to listen to my equipment" instead of the other way around. No bueno.

The good news is that I found a few in a box in back of the closet and sold them for BIG BUX in the current record-buying craze that has gripped today's hipsters.
