The Who: Tommy        (0 of 2 found this review helpful)
  Review by sthebkrman February 14, 2005

This is definitely one of my favorite SACD's and I am not really a Who fan. Pete Townsend must have loved remixing this in Super Audio. I enjoy starting at Pinball Wizard and listening to the end. The first part of the album gets a tad boring. Pinball Wizard sounds amazing. The second CD is also fun ... more
Brahms: Symphony No. 1, Overtures - Alsop        (10 of 23 found this review helpful)

If you like clarinet, you ... more

  Review by Bogart February 13, 2005

As stated by the previous reviewer - this piece is just beautiful and will capture you if you are a lover of brass. The description leaves out the fact that Coltrane is playing along side Hawkins, and it is quite a treat. So, you've got two tenor saxes and Gigi Gryce on alto sax. Listed as modern ... more
