Clearaudio LP's and CD's
« on: October 03, 2016, 12:09:37 PM »
The German Manufacturer, Clearaudio is well known for their outstanding High End Turntables, and wide array of smalls to cover just about everything to do with Vinyl.
Few people however, are aware of the fact that this company has been involved in producing excellent quality recordings under their own label, and is also the distributor for Deutsche Grammophon and Meyer Records.

So this thread is all about listing some current recordings, and new once to follow....

So let's kick off with:

Friends of Carlotta

Available on LP (R500) and CD (R300)



Playing all  Cover songs, this recording is a must have. Surface noise on LP is almost non existent. 

Excellent recording with tracks:

Walking in Memphis
Shores of Medderranean Sea
Time after Time
Nothing ever Happens
Ain't no Sunshine
Hello
How deep is your Love
Fever
Out of Touch
In the Air Tonight

Our next listing:

MARIKA CAILLY - Chante

She sings in French, she has lived a long time in Paris, and she even has a suitable name - but MARIKA CAILLY is Swedish.

Available on LP(R500) and  CD(R300)



If SA gets you down, pop this onto the TT or into the CD.
It does not take long before you find yourself at a Coffee shop on the Champs-Elysées...imagine the Parisiens walking by.....

Tracks:

Donne nouvelle
Cafe tabac
Elle ecoute fousser les fleurs
Je láime a mourir
Les petits cafes
Dominique
Jardin d'hiver
Un jour comme un autre
Les chevaliers cathares
La princesse et le troubadour live
Octobre live
Elle se reveille

Again a stunning recording with low surface noise from Meyer Records

I own both above records and David Garrett - Virtuoso.
Exceptional pressings, the covers done on Friends of Carlotta is very well done and David Garrett does a very nice rendition of Metallica's Nothing Else Matters.

I have spent similar and more Rands on records just to be disappointed, these do not fall in that category.

Okay.....I was going to post this one later, but seeing that Crashappy has blown the whistle :D here we go:

DAVID GARRETT - VIRTUOSO

Available on LP (R500)

With the looks of a rock star, it would be easy to overlook the extraordinary impact that Garrett has made as a classical musician. He ralded as one of the great violinists of his generation by some of the most notable luminaries in the classical world, including the revered international conductor Zubin Mehta, pronouncing that - "David is surely going to have a resounding presence on the music world of the 21st century"



Tracks:

La califfa
Carmen fantaisie with Paco Pena
Nothing else Matters(Metallica)
Csardas - Gypsy dance
Duelling banjos (on Caprice 24)
Serenade
The fight of the bumble bee
Toccata(Bach)
Somewhere(West end)
Eliza's song

Again, very good recording by Clearaudio

Our next reference LP:

Soul on Fire....Blues



In the beginning there was the blues, and the blues was good, and all the good remains in the blues....
The blues accompanies and survives all fashions, all epochs of music and also the history of mankind.


There are only a few musicians in these days who embody everything that makes good blues: passion, energy and an abundance of sensitivity. United Blues Experience with its outstanding musicians Wolfgang Bernreuther, Beat Kossowska and Rudin Bayer is truly among these exceptional blues bands.

Available on CD @ R300.00 incl

And LP @ R450.00 incl

40 years of Clearaudio – The Album

There are different ways to celebrate an anniversary. We can look back and reflect on where we’ve been and how far we’ve come. Or we can look forward towards future possibilities. Alternatively, we can simply pause and ‘take five’ to be present – right here, right now. Rather like that in-the-moment presence we feel when we’re enjoying superb music, excellently recorded and played. That’s how we’re celebrating Clearaudio’s 40th anniversary. To mark the occasion we’re delighted to present an album of music that embodies our passion for perfection, for nuanced and detailed sound, and for an intimate marriage of creativity and technical finesse. In other words, an album that reflects the key principles by which our founder, Peter Suchy, has lived his life. “Take the best and make it better – only then it is just good enough.” His well-known quote is as valid today as it was 40 years ago, and has inspired a host of colleagues and collaborators

Vinyl edition:
To do this excellent selection of music full justice, our vinyl recording was made using direct metal mastering (DMM) on 180g virgin vinyl.
 
HQCD Edition:
To do this excellent selection of music full justice, we have opted for a HQCD (HiQualityCD) format. Fully compatible with all CD players, HQCD
features enhanced materials with improved transparency to deliver higher sound Quality.

Price

Double LP R1050

CD R600
