Liner Notes By Michael Fremer
Ready for another go with A-list caliber demo tracks Here in our Analogue Productions Wonderful Sounds series, we have a treat for you — following up on The Wonderful Sounds of Christmas, and Female Vocals, we've put together The Wonderful Sounds of Male Vocals — stone-cold killers from the first song to the last!
When you want to show off your hi-fi system's potential, why waste time with multiple albums? Skip the searching, un-sleeving, re-sleeving and more — and give your audiophile friends what they like to hear. Grab this album and you'll hear show stoppers by Amos Lee, Dean Martin, Aaron Neville, Roy Orbison, Willie Nelson, Pure Prairie League, Harry Belafonte, Pete Seeger, The Beach Boys, Willy DeVille, Greg Brown, JD Souther, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Tony Bennett, Harry Nilsson, Tony Joe White — and what would a male vocal compilation be without the truly great Elvis Presley? Just how good older recordings can sound when the touch of an exceptional mastering engineer is involved is demonstrated by the matchless Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound.
Like others in our Wonderful Sounds series, this album works well as entertainment and as a great sampler of the LPs, mostly released by Analogue Productions.
Michael Fremer, of AnalogPlanet.com and Stereophile Magazine, walks you through each track and its historic place with very thorough and entertaining liners.
From "Fever" to "Spanish Jack," and "Amie" to "Blue Bayou" and everything in-between — "Georgia on My Mind," "(I Left My Heart) In San Francisco," "Silver Blue" and more — you'll be relishing this album with each play. Make the easy selection and enjoy listening.
