Distinctions The Unusual Suspects
Guitar Spectacular was legendary pedal steel player Speedy West's last official "solo" album. Augmented by an extraordinary group of session players including guitarists Roy Lanham and Billy Strange, bassist Red Wootten, drummer Earl Palmer, and pianist/accordion player Billy Liebert, it suffered due to a manufacturers glitch that saw side one repeated on both sides of the album. Despite a re-pressing, the damage had already been done, as record stores demanded their money back. The music contained within the "fully realized" version of Spectacular was more than worthy of its moniker, as West sounds more comfortable here than on any session in his career. Whether they're tearing it up on Western swing barnburners like "Double or Nothing" and "Wild and Woolly West" or taking it slow as molasses on lazy diversions like "Sunset at Waikiki," this crystal-clear recording deserves the cocked ears of a much larger audience than the one it received in 1962. © James Christopher Monger /TiVo

Booklet Distinctions The Unusual Suspects
David Zinman and the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra have presented exceptional performances of Gustav Mahler's symphonies in the hybrid SACD format, and this recording of the Symphony No. 9 in D major follows suit in its spot-on reading and splendid sound. Among the most enigmatic and difficult of Mahler's completed symphonies to interpret (perhaps only exceeded in strangeness by the Symphony No. 7, or in mystery by the unfinished Symphony No. 10), the Symphony No. 9 is haunted by visions of death, and Mahler's range of expressions runs from poignant lyricism to abject terror, resignation, and finally, sublime transformation. Zinman takes the pulse of the work from its opening, throbbing notes (often thought to be a representation of Mahler's cardiac arrhythmia), and accurately gauges its progress through these emotions, which suddenly change and often without warning. The expressions never go over the top, and Zinman is careful to stay away from caricature, but he still brings across the extreme emotional nature of Mahler's music. The Tonhalle is flawless in its playing and cohesive and powerful as an ensemble, despite the many chamber-like passages that at times make it seem less imposing and even fragile in sonority. The multichannel DSD audio is expansive, deep, and clear, so details and special timbres are wonderfully showcased. Highly recommended. © TiVo

Distinctions The Unusual Suspects
As a member of the Wu-Tang Clan, Ol' Dirty Bastard's bizarre, free-form rants added both comic relief and a dangerous unpredictability to the group's chemistry. ODB's RZA-produced solo debut Return to the 36 Chambers stretches his schtick over a full album, which if anything makes him sound even more unbalanced. Long before the album ends, it's clear that ODB has emptied his bag of tricks -- loose, off-the-beat raps that sometimes don't even rhyme, unbelievably graphic vulgarity, gonzo off-key warbling (which sounds a little like Biz Markie as a mental patient), and general goofing off. Yet within that role as hardcore rap's clown prince of psychosis, ODB is pretty damned entertaining. His leaps in association are often as disturbing as they are funny, whether they're couched in scatological detail or not; they certainly don't make his widely publicized erratic behavior seem at all surprising. And, despite the unstructured feel dominating most of the album, there are a fair share of hooks, and two absolutely killer singles in "Shimmy Shimmy Ya" and "Brooklyn Zoo." Certainly, there's no reason for the album to be as long as it is, considering the dull filler toward the end. But, even though Return to the 36 Chambers might not be the most earth-shattering piece of the Wu-Tang puzzle, it's an infectious party record which proves that, despite his limitations, Ol' Dirty Bastard has the charisma to carry an album on his own. © Steve Huey /TiVo
