From Gerald R. Lucas

Listening Journal: Day 2

18:04:00 – More Harry Connick, Jr. This time it’s Star Turtle. Sounds so good. The Jolida 1701 has been warming up for a couple of hours, and I cannot wait to get rid of this Sony Blu-Ray player and get the Arcam rDAC in here. New Ben Folds with Nick Hornsby. Some gems there. Rush’s Caress of Steel. I did this because I just saw it on Stereophile’s 2010 Records to Die For; nice. And I totally agree with Brian Damkroger that “I Think I’m Going Bald” does not fit. OK, now Phish’s A Picture of Nectar. How’d that happen? Pretty damn good though. Ended at 22:19:00.
