So I went through and read the reveiws to find out what remasters were done well and which ones are crap, and wishlisted almost their entire cataloge.

    A Good Feelin' to Know is a masterpiece and is one of their best. (along with Cantamos - at least for me). I've just recently returned to work after being out for over 6 months due to an ankle injury, so as soon as we get caught up a bit financially, I'm going to be placing my order. Thanks for the wake up call.
    Glad to hear that slowshoes!

    Long time ago I had all the Poco LPs. It was only when
    I spotted this 5CD Box did I get my wake up call.

    Since purchase I've really been enjoying my Poco revival sessions
    - now I've got an appetite from pickin' up even more Poco titles!

    Bizarrly Amazon UK list this as a Laurie Anderson album, which it's not (it's Sentieri Selvaggi).

    I'm not in a position to recommend it yet, I'm slowly coming to terms with it. It's a little, too light at times (I think it's the flute). But I'm on my fifth spin, and it's beginning to take shape.

    I recently picked up a whack of box sets, including Swarbrick, Carthy, Hutchings, Thompson, Fairport and Cropredy Capers, all from Free Reed. Marvelous stuff.

    John, I love that album ^^. I actually bought it on a flyer a year or two back, having seen a still-sealed copy sitting in a bin at my local shop. Eventually, curiosity got the better of me. It's become a personal favorite. I didn't realize they put out other albums. For some reason, I had it in my head this was a one-off. I definitely need to hunt down some of their other stuff. 'Glad you mentioned that . . .

    I imagine you're probably familiar with this band, too. 'Gave this one a spin tonight:

    Sorry Sloeshoes - I missed this earlier, somehow. Anyway, I'm not sure I can help you. This is the only B. Gilberto album I own. I've heard samples from her previous album, Tanto Tempo, which sound good. I think it's considered one of her best. You may want to give that one a shot . . .
