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.

Waylon Jennings - Classic Albums Collection (2015)
10 Albums | FLAC (tracks) 24 bit/96 kHz | Time - 327:19 minutes | 6,72 GB
Studio Master, Official Digital Download | Artwork: Front cover(s)

If any one performer personified the outlaw country movement of the '70s, it was Waylon Jennings. Though he had been a professional musician since the late '50s, it wasn't until the '70s that Waylon, with his imposing baritone and stripped-down, updated honky tonk, became a superstar. Jennings rejected the conventions of Nashville, refusing to record with the industry's legions of studio musicians and insisting that his music never resemble the string-laden, pop-inflected sounds that were coming out of Nashville in the '60s and '70s. Many artists, including Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson, followed Waylon's anti-Nashville stance and eventually the whole "outlaw" movement -- so-named because of the artists' ragged, maverick image and their independence from Nashville -- became one of the most significant country forces of the '70s, helping the genre adhere to its hardcore honky tonk roots. Jennings didn't write many songs, but his music -- which combined the grittiest aspects of honky tonk with a rock & roll rhythm and attitude, making the music spare, direct, and edgy -- defined hardcore country, and it influenced countless musicians, including members of the new traditionalist and alternative country subgenres of the '80s.

Steven Isserlis, Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, Paavo Järvi -
Sergei Prokofiev / Dmitri Shostakovich: Cello Concertos (2015)

FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/48 kHz | Time - 65:18 minutes | 690 MB
Studio Master, Official Digital Download | Artwork: Digital booklet

A thrilling album from Steven Isserlis couples the ground-breaking Prokofiev Cello Concerto from the 1930s with Shostakovich's eruptive response to it written for Rostropovich in 1959. These seminal works mark the cello's coming of age, enveloping its trademark rhapsodic lyricism in a newly visceral passion. Om this recording, Paavo Järvi makes his Hyperion debut, conducting an ebullient Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra and providing the ideal foil to Isserlis's impassioned virtuosity.

Marin Alsop, São Paulo Symphony - Prokofiev: Symphony No.5 / The Year 1941 (2012)
FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/96 kHz | Time - 59:38 minutes | 1,03 GB
Blu-Ray Pure Audio | Sourced track: LPCM | Artwork: Front cover

Written in 1944, Prokofiev’s Fifth Symphony is one of his greatest and most complete symphonic statements. At its première he himself called it “a symphony of the grandeur of the human spirit”. The first movement couples considerable strength with unexpected yet highly characteristic twists of melody. After a violent scherzo followed by a slow movement of sustained lyricism, with a fiercely dramatic middle section, the finale blazes with barely suppressed passion. The Year 1941 is another wartime work, a symphonic suite written in response to the German invasion of the Soviet Union.

Yes ‎- Yes
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 900mb
Label: Atlantic/SD 18159 | Release: 1969 | This Issue: 1971 | Genre: Progressive-Rock

After reading the sad announcement of the death of Chris Squire, there remains only lament (death at age 67, too young!)
The Yes debut is mightily impressive. Today it seems even more creative when one looks back at their recorded history and how they continually developed with each album. This is where their foundation was set and everything that happened subsequently comes back to this fine recording.
