How does the Renbourn UK compare to the U.S. issue?

The Dave Brubeck Quartet; The Columbia Studio Albums Collection 1955-1966

I've got a lot of these mixed between CD, LP and R2R.  Now they are consolidated into one collection :)

I received it a week ago and listened last weekend.  It is better.  It isn't a first pressing but without a doubt the imaging is more precise and fleshed out.  The highs are cleaner and clearer as well.

How do you like Raising Sand?  I love Alison Krauss and Union Station but their last album and her duet with Plant both left me cold.

Paully,  I really like Raising Sand.  There are a couple of tracks that I could leave but I like the album as  a whole.  It is nice and relaxing.  I find that their voices really pair well.  Very organic album.  Nothing overdone.

It is the first Alison Krauss that I have.  I will have to check out her and |Union Station.  Do you have a recommendation.


Thanks

Do I have a recommendation he asks.  I always have a recommendation, may not be even be close to right, but believe me, I always have one.  ;)

I am generally not a fan of live albums, at all, but Alison Krauss and Union Station Live is absolutely essential and it sounds incredible.  Then New Favorite as well as Forget About it (apparently without Union Station).  Order of listening isn't truly important here though.  Those would be my recommendations!  If you are into vinyl, unless you are quite wealthy, it will not be an option here for those albums.  OOP and expensive.

And I think I will give Raising Sand another listen, it never hurts.

+1 here

Alison Krauss and Union Station Live & Diana Krall live in Paris are perhaps my favourite live recordings at the moment.

Hooverphonic live with orchestras is a little different and has been moving up my play list recently.

I listened to Depeche Mode, Ultra a couple of time through yesterday. I had forgotten how good the recording is once you get past the first track.
