Yes - Fragile
Steven Wilson remaster 5.1 channel blu-ray
What an incredible job SW did with all the Yes multich remasters he's done so far. I've got them all except still looking for a deal on Tales From Topographic Oceans. No heavy compression has been done like so many modern remasters. I measured the CD that came in my "Definitive Edition" box, it returns a DR-13. I don't have blu-ray ripping software but looking online to the Dynamic Range Database, one poster put up a ripped BD number of DR-14! Thanks Steven Wilson for so many excellent multich remastering of early progressive rock albums!

You probably don't know Lara Fabian... she was born in belgium, she speaks and sings in seven languages, among them russian, english, spanish, italian (her mom is italian) and french. Nobody could tell she's not french when she speaks... She lives in Québec and she's way above Céline Dion... This song is written in french. You may like it...

A new album by PP Arnold - not sure if she's well known in the US? I know her from a few covers of favourite 60s tracks.

It seems there's been a gap of 51 years since her last album..! This one's been lovingly produced by a fan: Steve Cradock the guitarist of Ocean Colour Scene, and they've re-captured the sound of the 60s with new songs, production and orchestration. Hard to believe this was recorded recently...

A recording of superb artistic and technical quality, engineered by the late Jack Renner. Here is the fun page from the Telarc liner notes where they tell you what equipment was used to make the record:

Wow, much better dynamics than the High Vibration high-priced SACD box set disaster...
