    I thought it would be nice to have one place for Steve's recommended recordings which have good sound and performances. Most of us have seen Steve recommend several fine recordings and I asked Steve by email to suggest some more here.

    Once Steve has time, he will post some recommendations. Thanks in advance Steve.

    One I recall that I really liked was the Cotton Club soundtrack.

    Isn't there a thread in the archives somewhere where someone attempted to collect every positive comment our host had ever made on various recordings?

    I believe that he's recommended the original Atlantic ABBA CD's (Greatest Hits, Greatest Hits Vol.2, and Super Trouper).

    I also seem to recall a post about the Polydor Tony Sheridan & The Beatles, but can't remember if that was a CD recommendation or LP.

    Edit: Here's the link regarding Sheridan/Beatles
