Dear Publisher!

Our new section - "Vinyl & Hi-Res" is the special place for publishing the rips of musical albums taken from a non-standard sources as:
  • Vinyl LPs ripped with serious technical equipment
  • Multichannel music copied from a DVD-Audio sources
  • SACD-layer extracted via analogue output
  • High resolution studio masters, available directly from label (include "Digital download" higher than 16 bit)
  • Any tapes presented in higher than 24 bit/48 kHz, etc...

Just because you've ripped an old vinyl LP in the digital format does not make it a specific audiophile product. Same as the original vinyl album ripped to MP3 files does not fit here. The posting of music grabbed from the usual (Red Book) Compact Discs is strongly forbidden in this section.

Keith Jarrett - Hamburg '72 (2014)
FLAC (tracks) 24 bit/96 kHz | Time - 55:25 minutes | 1,2 GB
Studio Master, Official Digital Download | Artwork: Digital booklet

The legendary Keith Jarrett Trio, playing live at NDR Funkhaus, Hamburg. The trio with Haden and Motian – formed in 1966 – was Jarrett’s first great band, his choice of players a masterstroke. With the bassist who had learned his craft in Ornette Coleman’s band, and the drummer from Bill Evans’s ground-breaking trio, Jarrett was able to explore the full scope of modern jazz, from poetic balladry to hard-swinging time-playing to ferocious and fiery free music, the improvisation including episodes with Keith on soprano sax. The interaction between the three musicians is uncanny throughout, reaching a peak in an emotion-drenched performance of Charlie Haden’s “Song for Che”. ECM set up the 1972 tour of the Jarrett Trio, including the German radio concert from which this album is drawn. Manfred Eicher returned to the original tapes, remixing the music for this edition in Oslo in July 2014, together with Jan Erik Kongshaug.

The Bad Plus - bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Ethan Iverson, and drummer David King - have a well-earned reputation for pushing the limits on what is expected of a piano-bass-drums trio. The past 15 years have seen the genre-smashing band create a distinctive and original repertoire of inventive and exciting original music, along with iconoclastic covers of artists as divergent as Nirvana and Neil Young, Aphex Twin and Ornette Coleman.

Isaac Hayes - Hot Buttered Soul (1969/2011)
FLAC (tracks) 24 bit/192 kHz | Time - 56:50 minutes | 2,04 GB
Studio Master, Official Digital Download | Artwork: Front cover

By 1969, black artists were following rock's lead and recording extended epics. At the forefront of such experimentation was big bad Isaac Hayes, coauthor of countless Stax classics and an artist in his own right. On this, his second album, Hayes takes two MOR-pop benchmarks, Burt Bacharach's "Walk On By" and Jimmy Webb's "By the Time I Get to Phoenix," and spins them out into slow-building sermons lasting 12 and 18.5 minutes apiece. Heavily romantic, they predate by two years Barry White's symphonic adventures in the same style, revolutionizing soul music in the process. Meanwhile, on the album's third epic, the 10-minute "Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic," Hayes and his backing band the Bar-Kays wind up sounding, bizarrely, like a black Crazy Horse.
