Re: Good Demo Music - Good Imaging Music - Your Favorite Demo Music

For demo-ing music my usual go to CDs are:

Rebecca Pidgeon - The Four Marys

Linkin Park - Reanimation

Ana Caram - Rio After Dark

The GAP Band - The Best of


I've listened to these CDs/FLAC rips so much with headphones I know them like the back of my hand.

The Gap Band? You dropped the bomb on me early in the morning with that one. That would be outstanding for the party train, but don't burn rubber on me to get there.

I am not seeing The Four Marys by Rebecca Pidgeon.

Re: Good Demo Music - Good Imaging Music - Your Favorite Demo Music

One great song is Bill Bruford's version of The Drum Also Waltzes (originally I think it's from Max Roach) on Bruford's Master Strokes.

Not exactly a drum solo, more of a drum song, but a very nice soundstage, with very clear positoning of the different pieces on Bruford's kit left to right and center and even height. A great eyes closed piece.

A couple of other greats: Mandolin Wind from Rod Stewart's Every Picture Tells a Story (well, the Mandolin of course!), Helplessly Hoping (Crosby Stills and Nash, same album, what harmonies), Introduction (Chicago Transit Authority, such Brass). Try all of these on HDTracks Hi Res downloads.

All of the above are stereo sources. If you want to Demo Surround music, just about anything Steven Wilson has touched. The King Crimson Anniversary remasters (DVD-A), his own The Raven That Refused to Sing (Try the Watchmaker).

Floyd Fans just have to listen to Wish You Were Here (SACD or BluRay). Plenty out there. I could write a book!!!

Excellent discussion topic Sonnie. Thanks!

One of my favorites is Sade's Love Is Found from The Ultimate Collection. The remastered version is very clean and has some good bass. Give it a try and I think you'll be impressed.

Lee Ritenour: 6 string theory... One of my favorites.

WYWH SACD is another one that is masterfully sounding compared to previous releases. It is hard to stop listening to it once you start. I sit and listened to it one time and then started it over and got about half way before I had to stop.

Trying yours Sonnie. Try my Sade and let me know what you think. It's best turned up.
