America: Struttin' Our Stuff        (4 of 4 found this review helpful)
  Review by DeSelby January 21, 2005

stereo sonics: this is a live record from 1999 and the sound is really disappointing. As if there are some thick curtains between you and the speakers. No brilliance, no airiness, dull bass. Not what you expect from a today´s recording on sacd. They made better live records 40 years ago.
SACD - The Ultimate Audio Experience        (1 of 2 found this review helpful)

On a good vinyl system, everything is larger in scale than on the SACD. I take ... more

  Review by mukkachukka January 20, 2005

Well, by now, we've all heard the old cliche, "It sounds like he's really in the room when I listen to this SACD!" And for this release, it's true. Any fan of Dylan's will remember how awful the sound was on the old Columbia reissues. They make up for that in spades with the Dylan SACDs. This was ... more
