Synopsis

Album Description
This disc offers the only known recording of the first version of Gila, a group that gigged constantly to build a considerable reputation as a formidable live act. Taken from a live Cologne radio broadcast from February 26, 1972 (a few months before the group's demise), Night Works is all that one could hope for, long space rock acid jamming and much better fidelity than one would get from a recording by an audience member. Garden of Delights. 1999.

Michael Ruff, live... at your home stereo system!
Arnel Enero | Manila, Philippines | 02/02/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"THE MUSIC: Michael Ruff's talent is showcased here, featuring his music in various styles. Everything was performed live and recorded direct to disc: no overdubs or any post-production effects added. THE SOUND: Coming from an audiophile label, this recording places you front-seat in a live Ruff concert, especially when played through a good stereo system.FOR AUDIOPHILES ONLY: Everything you're looking for is here... Sheffield transparency, perfect tonal balance, accurate soundstaging and imaging... everything comes in one complete package that delivers a sense of "being there"."
Wow!!! true audiophile recording

"All other recordings fail in comparison to this one!
All I can say is wow!

It is getting harder to listen to other recordings because this recording is so clean and pure. The cd is great music.
Wishing well is my favorite!

I have listened to many audiophile recordings and this is the top dog!"
Holy Book For Sound Engineers

"Michael Ruff isn't widely recognized as he would deserve by the big audience. There are more popular artists performing his songs, and they've been surely rewarded by and large.
This Speaking In Melodies, though, seems designed to entrance the Sound Engineers in search for Perfection. It's probably the only title recorded and mixed by living legend George Massenburg to actually having been produced by audiophile, no-compromise label Sheffield Lab.
If almost all productions by George Massenburg deserve the status of Holy Goal for sound engineers, combining his talent with the Label's heritage produced this masterpiece in sonic art.
If you have any interest in professional studio- or concert-sound, here's one of your career's Holy Grails (and among the best 10-album-ever to test and demonstrate a big PA system)."
