Thanks Bryan - I thought it was only me! I selected Lady Susan Stewart from
the Fiddlesticks & Ivory CD which sounded superb at home, but far from
great when I used the branch equipment. (Having said that, the John Taylor /
Andy Imbrie recording of De'il Amang the Tailors sounded fine at our dance
on Saturday)
