    Not really my sort of music. The close harmony singing is excellent and well done, but the rest of the musical style doesn’t do much for me. Good musicians playing music I don’t entirely get, well it’s better than bad musicians playing almost anything…

    I agree with joeerand that the recording quality isn’t the best. The ambisonics aren’t working well for me, I can hear individual speakers, and that hasn’t been my experience with any previous ambisonic release for a long time. It’s OK but it’s not superb like pretty much all the other ambisonic releases.

    Thank you for this, O.D. In the interest of discussion, I enjoyed that we get some bluegrass music in your always-eclectic mix, but I wasn’t crazy about the quality of this recording. It sounds like four mics set up in a live concert recording, but there is enough bleed-through between the mics that it’s not a very interesting surround image. Whatever mics were used, or their placement, led to a not very interesting sound field, and the string bass is kind of muddy. I’d be curious about whatever anybody else thinks.

      It’s an Ambisonic recording so used just the single soundfield microphone.

      Well it seems pretty normal to me that people who sing with their boots on sound muddy ..

    “Intimate” closeness to the performers, and a very pleasant sound field, very good for lonely evenings.

    Nice to hear that this is recorded in quite a small room, this adds some warmth. Quite a nice group too. Real folk 😉

      sorry this was an attempt to publish an xml file for foobar with the titles..
      These one is so rare that even discogs doesn’t file it.

    Ambisonic bluegrass…sounds intriguing! Thank you OD, appreciate it! 🙂
