(Albums are arranged according to more traditional audiophile categories like jazz and blues at the top and the non-traditional audiophile genres at the bottom.) Listen to the TIDAL and Qobuz streams below!

The Album Of The Week is “David Crosby – “Live at the Capitol Theatre.” Crosby continues to release new work in his eighties, again collaborating with Becca Stevens, Michelle Willis, and Michael League (known as The Lighthouse Band). It’s a trio of musicians he has collaborated with since 2016’s Lighthouse album.

This latest live recording and film were recorded and shot at the historic Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY, and features an uncut gem in the song “1974”, a demo track that Crosby had floating around on his computer hard drive for decades.
