What's that one track you use to show off your system when someone comes over? The song must make an impact from the get go to impress, because they won't be listening for long.

Now that I've finally finished my LP to CD-R transfer of Louisiana's LeRoux's first album, it's Take A Ride On A Riverboat. With the opening harmonies, the bass, the horns...hell, the whole song. Actually, the whole album is great demo stuff.

My surround sound demo used to be Bohemian Rhapsody on the DVD-A, but I think I may change it to Peter Gabriel's Growing Up. That mix is just amazing.

For stereo, I go with Joe Satriani's Devil's Slide on the SACD.

Patricia Barber, Cafe Blue, used to be the mainstay.

It's been usurped by Massive Attack & Tracey Thorn, Protection.

"Brothers In Arms" by Dire Straits

"Three Wishes" by Roger Waters
Tell me what you regard as your greatest strength, so I will know how best to undermine you; tell me of your greatest fear, so I will know which I must force you to face; tell me what you cherish most, so I will know what to take from you; and tell me what you crave, so that I might deny you.

I always have used Flim and the BB's "Tricycle", "David Johansen and the Harry Smiths" on Chesky, and XTC's Apple/Venus(my favorite).
I know the hearse is double parked and the motor's running.
It could be worse, it could be me.

I favor James Taylor's Terra Nova from the SACD of "JT".

Just a beautiful multi-channel recording especially the end vocals.

"Nardis" by Patricia Barber on Cafe Blue.
Eight minute long song that has everything on it.
