I almost forgot; this finally arrived. Very good sound. At first I didn't understand what he meant by Tribute To The Lady. This is very joyful listening.
Yes it is. I have various CD's, box sets by Sam over the years but this is hands down the best sounding remaster of the Keen years.

The scuttlebutt is that ABKCO is putting out a 7 to 10 CD box set of his RCA recordings in the next year or two.

I've got my credit card ready. :D

If anyone's still wondering, Ludwig's remaster of Straits studio albums got a CD release. New personal favourite.

Man I miss my Cooke records/CDs. When is the 10 cd box coming??? Which Keen set you referring to? I probably had it.

Not sure.

It's Sam's 90th birthday this year, January 22nd, and my understanding is that a massive box set is coming from his RCA days, after this release in January, which I quickly purchased.

Unbelievably god SQ (sound quality). I'm assuming we'll see it soon, probably for the Christmas holidays. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Keen is sold out. How much did it go for? I had one of the disc in that set. That RCA is exciting. I had the 4 disc box set. Good thing I had ripped that set on my player.

Really?

It took me about a month to get the Keen box set from Amazonia in January. Shipped out of Australia. This pandemic has really screwed everything up.

I payed $40 bucks back then, seems like a bargain now, considering it's not available right now. BTW, great packaging, etc.

Posted in my collection.

Funny thing. This album has some songs with vocal almost exclusively in the left channel. It's really no fun to listen to it that way. I did check all my cables before i wrote this.

This on the other hand... Such endless joy to listen to (but I really love Dinah's voice):

Possibly defective CD? I've never had that happen.

Highly recommend the Chess/Universal 1997 - Her Best (The Chess 50th Anniversary Collection), the SQ is spot on.

For a more complete compilation I can also recommend the 3-CD 2013 The Anthology by the Not Now Music label.

Could be. But I wouldn't feel comfortable recommending it on account of this.

I'll see if I can find the ones you suggested. In the meantime, I have an older, not remastered CD and the vocals on those songs are not all in one channel.
