Supertramp: Breakfast in America      (4 of 4 found this review helpful)
  December 9, 2013

Listening to this SACD now, and I can certainly confirm everyone else’s glowing plaudits. I’ll likely listen again tomorrow to verify my initial findings, but at first blush, this is, without reservation, the finest-sounding version of “Breakfast in America” I’ve ever heard.

Poco: Pickin' Up The Pieces        (4 of 6 found this review helpful)
  October 16, 2013

Not much needs be said about the artistic merit or historical importance of Poco's seminal "Pickin' Up the Pieces."

I love marine biology, particularly the study of sharks. The ocean and its denizens are a big passion of mine. I minored in marine biology when I was in college and have traveled to South Australia twice and Nothern California once to observe great whites. When my wife and I retire, I might make it three! ... more
