    Plus it is tonnes of fun. :)
  • Well, I do not know if these would be considered reference tracks, but Barcelona Gypsy band is pretty good. I like their music. Probably don't understand a damn thing that they say in their songs, but music is pretty good. Another band is Pink Martini, especially the one called Amado Mio....

    We heard ya the first time (on the first page of this thread) :D Just ribbing ya. Those songs are definitely not what I think of when I think of Robert Palmer (I think of his MTV videos and stint with Power Station), but I have enjoyed listening to the songs you mentioned, and reading about his 'eclectic' style over the years. He passed too soon :(

    Taken from a recent Audioholics reply regarding "Club Polk" and Polk speakers:
    "I'm yet to hear a Polk speaker that merits more than a sentence and 60 seconds discussion." :\
    My response is: If you need 60 seconds to respond in one sentence, you probably should't be evaluating Polk speakers.....

    I agree regarding Dean Peer and his base guitar. Some unusual stuff.

    Pretty much anything with Eva Cassidy......Particularly Nightbird LP.

    If a rig gets her voice right....that's what I'm looking for.

    Eva...gone too soon. There is no better test for female vocals.

    I want to add Bruce Springsteen's "The River" title track. It was basically recorded in a gym with mattresses on the walls...and sounds like it. Embrace that, and listen for it.
