Reviews

If you're into vocal recordings, or want a sampler of Chesky's material, or if you just want something that sounds great so that you can impress friends with your stereo, get this disc. I play it a lot -- for all of the above reasons. I listen to many tracks on this disc, but I'm always drawn back to Livingston Taylor singing Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely." Through the OMD-28s, the richness and vibrancy of Taylor's voice were startlingly realistic, with no chestiness or overhang. Furthermore, his voice was tight and focused.
