Doug, I am curious about Allman Brothers "Eat a Peach". I bought "Live at Fillmore East" (DTS) and was very disappointed with the surround mix--is "Eat a Peach" better?

1. Amanda Marshall - "Everbody's Got A story"

2. Mary Chapin Carpenter - "Time, Sex, Love"

3. Flamming Lips

4. Beck - "Sea Change"

5. Elton John "Yellow Brick Road"


Amanda Marshall has a great surround mix and is some great rock/pop

Mary Chapin's is a great relaxing disc with a very emersive surround mix and some great songwriting

The flamming lips is just plain fun!

Beck's disc is a great surround mix as well as great audio quality and some interesting music.

Elton John is just classic and also a very good surround mix and such suprising audio quality from such an old recording!

I have the new SACDs of both Peach and Fillmore and the surround mixes are fantastic.
I only wanted to sample "Mountain Jam" and ended up listening to the whole song in the center of the room. Just amazing stuff.
For a $13.99 hybrid CD, you can't beat it.

The Fillmore mix is done by the same guy as Peach (different mix than the DTS version). But it is also only the original album tracks (but since the bonus ones are on Peach, I got them all).

Highly recommended.

Thanks to all for posting. Based on your recommendations, I have recently picked up the following, which now must be included in favorites:

--The Who "Tommy"

--Beck "Sea Change"

--Roxy Music "Avalon"

Brilliant!

I need more recommendations, so keep it up.

By the way, very disappointed to hear that Beck's new album has been delayed until 2005.

I suppose I'll play too...

DVD-A
Flaming Lips Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots *
Boz Scaggs Dig
Blue Man Group Audio*
Zephyr Voices Unbound*
Queen A Night at the Opera

SA-CD
Diana Krall The Girl in the Other Room *
Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon
James Taylor Hourglass
Bob Mintzer Big Band Homage to Count Basie *
Fennell+Cleveland Symphony Winds Holst Suites 1+2, Water Music Suite, Sousa Works

Selections with a * are top 5 regardless of format. I was torn between the Mintzer title and DSotM, and chose the Mintzer as no one else has mentioned this.

Cheers,
