  • Listening to Older Music

    I have been listening to some older musical groups lately. I put on the Momas and Papas and was blown away with the stereo separation. Some vocals would be only in 1 speaker the melody would be in center and the other singer would be in the other speaker but not in center or other side. I bring this up because it made me realize how much we are truly missing in music. I loved when the bands took pride in how there album turned out. It just feels like something is missing in music. Yes I know about the stupid way the clip the music to give music a louder presence.

    That's funny you posted this, I was listening to Supertramp "Crime of the Century" the other day and marveling at how they moved vocals around and placed instruments...I was thinking just what you said about bands taking pride in how their albums sounded and how we may be missing some of that with some, not all, of today's musicians...

        C'mon you guys. You're talking about contemporary music. Gershwin, Django Reinhardt, Jo Stafford, Benny Goodman, Fats Waller. Now THAT'S older music.

        Of course, even they are contemporary compared to Bach, Beethoven, and Tchaikovsky.

          I can't agree with you on this one. What you're describing is just gimmick stereo. Just like some of the early 5.1 DVD-A and SACD releases that would anchor certain instruments in certain speakers just because they could do it. It sounds cool at first, but gets real old real fast. Give me a good recording with real depth to the soundstage and I'll be a really happy camper.
