Just found this buried in collection of LPs - can't say I like it that much having just managed to stomach one track but other may like it. Its a double album called Flanger templates from 1987.

Being lazy and listening to Velvet Underground Gold (best of are usually the scurge)

This reminds me of something Petula Clark or Mama Cas has sung.

Gregory Porter - Nat "King" Cole & Me.

What can one say but WOW!
Porter's golden voice, plus breathtaking sound, full of light, shade warmth, tone and old school wide dynamic range.
Porter's production team and the orchestra have done a sterling job of emulating the Capitol stereo sound of the late 'fifties/early sixties. Full marks to them.
Nothing will surpass Cole's originals in terms of that voice but this is fabulous and Porter just oozes affection for his idol.
Take a listen to "When Love Was King" - seven minutes of spine tingling emotional and sonic gorgeousness.
The whole album is lovely.
DIY NVA amplification ( roughly equivalent to NVA A60) BTE Designs passive preamp, BTE Designs Lenco L75 turntable, Rega R200 arm, Goldring E3 cartridge, NVA Phono 1
Musical Fidelity M1 DAC, AppleTV4 with Apple Music subscription, ripped CDs streamed via WD MyCloud Home Duo NAS, with PLEX media server.
Speakers - Sealed cabs with Fane 12-250-TC 12" full range drivers. Also, Winslow Burhoe/Roy Allison/Richard Dunn influenced semi-omnidirectional.

A desperate attempt to break out of over-exposure to synthesizer bloops & bleeps ...

I like Cheap Trick. Saw them in the 80s supporting Motely Crue.
