Welcome to Adobe GoLive 6

This month’s drawing is a brand new issue from MVD Entertainment Group = DUKE ELLINGTON – EARLY TRACKS FROM THE MASTER OF SWING. The Duke not only had a career of over a half century but was very photogenic, prompting the making of many motion picture “Soundies” and roles in Hollywood films. The 80-minute DVD includes such hits as Take the A Train, Fly Me to the Moon, Mood Indigo, Satin Doll, Sophisticated Lady, Symphony in Black, Cottontail, Black and Tan Fantasy, I Got It Bad and That Ain’t Good, C Jam Blues. [We just reviewed it HERE.] To be considered in the drawing for a half dozen of these DVDs we’ll be sending out the end of August, Register Here. 
The winners of our July drawing for the Miles Davis Prestige 3-disc Set were Deena Quilty of Farmington CT, Ron Greenlee of San Luis Obispo CA, Patrick Mucka of North Potomac MD, Jeffrey Canaday of Springfield IL, and Ira Aspiz of Huntington Beach CA.


  
 

General Editorial 

 
Welcome to the web publication for audio, music and home theater, emphasizing hi-res and surround sound for music! AUDIOPHILE AUDITION began as a weekly national radio series hosted by John Sunier, which aired for 13 1/2 years on up to 200 public radio and commercial stations coast to coast.
 
August 06 is our 90
th issue and we’re in our eighth year! All reviews – over 100 a month – are now added throughout the month as they are written. This ensures you get the latest reviews, without having to wait a month for new content.  We have also reorganized the web site to make it easier to navigate and find content. The most recent reviews appear at the top of each Section Index. To read the full review, click on the headline and you will be taken directly to a page for that review. The Home Page lists the five latest published reviews, the Section Index lists the past two months of reviews, the Archive goes back to June 1, 2005, and for all reviews by month prior to that you need to click on the Old Archive. The Disc Index also lists past reviews in every section.

We welcome your feedback, and we have a “Reader Feedback” section. Please send us your comments, and we will review and possibly post them to that new feedback section. Check back with us frequently for more reviews & news, and be sure to register for the monthly giveaway! When you do, please give us the few requested facts, including a workable email and street address – otherwise we can’t send you your winning item! We don’t ask your income level and we don’t share your information with anyone else.
