Was browsing around the Ponomusic store the other night, and found some good funk at full 24bit:
Bootsy: Playa of the Year and Ahh The Name is @ 24/192 for $21.79
Stevie Wonder: Songs, Musiquarium, Talking Book, Music of my Mind, Innvervisions all at 24bit for around $20 per album.
Most of Otis Reading’s career at 24/192
6 different Ray Charles LP’s at 24/192
Slave’s self titled debut from 1977 at 24/192 for $24
Donny Hathaway Live @ 24/192 for $24
Sly’s There’s A Riot Going On @ 24/176 for $25 (listen to that tape buzz!)
Monk’s Genius Of Modern Music vols 1 & 2 at 24/192 for $21 each
4 Sam Cooke albums at 24/88, some of them less than a $1 per track
There seems to be more 24bit material every time I search, but in some cases 16/44 is the best you are gonna get for some time. It still sounds a lot better than what’s the norm these days, and ponoplayer plays 16/44 FLAC as good as anything in the world.
