Review by The Mule April 1, 2012 (2 of 3 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:    
Wow, I can't believe someone gave this 2* for the sonic sound. To each his or her own, I know we all have different ears... but wow... this sounded excellent to me. Duane's guitar never sounded so vivid and full. Now I'll admit, I do not have a record player, so I've never heard the vinyl version. But I can say unequivocally that SACD sounds much better than the red book cd version that I've heard a thousand times over. I think I bought this SACD for $20something dollars, so only a few more dollars more than the regular CD. Strongly recommend!

Performance:   Sonics:
I'll agree with JR that the sound is clean and that the album is a true rock/blues classic, but it's all down hill from there. Like so many SACD reissues, I find this one a little thin and compressed in the dynamics department (when compared with an ORIGINAL Capricorn labeled LP), but I did not do any comparisons to earlier digital transfers, where I would expect the SACD to win the contest by a slight margin. I must say that with all of the disappointment Iíve been having with many SACD reissues of vintage recordings that itís probably time for me to come to the realization that the engineers in the music industry are their own worst enemies.

Performance:   Sonics:  
Sound is really a pleasant suprise- I find this quality very unusual among rock recordings. A vast improvement over the original SACD- in every repect. This disc is certainly going to get some more use.
