Forget Codec's and Formats, it is the PERFORMANCE That Matters

I am scrolling through threads here and some members have a love/hate relationship with formats. Vinyl, digital, analog, MP3, DSD,PCM,MQA, low rez, hirez and on and on. That is merely icing on the cake. The "meal" is the actual performance and I wanted to share an inexpesive treasure trove of truly GREAT performances. The recording are mostly converted from tapes that were made through the soundboard by the engineer handling the event but WOW. Some perfromances are caught on video, some audio, none of it could be considered "hirez" but it doesn't matter. Check out Wolfgangs at:

For example, I would take this Elton John live concert recording when he was the opening act for The Kinks at the Filmore in 1970 over a hirez box set every time. Check out the "liner notes" for info about the events:
