Tony Mottola – Tony and Strings

20 Mar

I can imagine there are quite a few who are thinking “Why’s he releasing yet another Tony Mottola album?”

Well the simple answer should be”Well it’s Quad”, but actually here in the UK we are suffering from the left overs of the snow storm that hit the USA, and it’s raining, AGAIN!

I was playing this album and thought “why should i keep this to myself, it so fit’s the mood of the day”. So here it is, something on the gentle side for those certain occasions………

Barbra Streisand – Live Concert At The Forum

16 Mar

Much has been written about the mix on this album, which i’m finding hard to understand. With this decode i find that it’s a fair representation of a live concert. There has been mention made that the Q8 is ‘under-whelming’, well i’ve not heard it so i can’t comment.

What i’d really like is those who get this new reissue to make comments on how they find the performance/mix, even more so if they’ve heard the Q8.
