Review by analogue January 5, 2011 (5 of 6 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:
This new shm-sacd is great. I had never heard of this band before. They are British. This is considered more of a cult album by real hardcore rock lovers from the early 70's. As I was curious I sampled the music and my interest became more piqued. I gave it a try. A very expensive chance to say the least.

This is essentially jam oriented rock music with a little bit of a prog feel to it. There is a good measure of folk sound to it as well. Good rock music and the dsd transfer is terrific. I enjoyed the album much better when I listened to it as a whole. There is some bitchin' lead guitar work in here.

If you want to take a chance with music you never heard of before then I recommend this album to you. The song writing and guitar playing is excellent.

highly recommended and a great job by Universal Japan.

I've had this on LP way back when, then CD and it has been, in all honesty, one of my favourite and most played albums. Today I received my SA-CD copy. I am very happy I. Bought it, we'll worth the money. I think it might get played even more now. I find the detail and quality superb despite its years.

I didn't know this album, or Wishbone Ash, before this arrived. The songs are good for the time they were written in.

Some beautiful high-frequency details and a great feeling of immediacy. Excellent SACD transfer.
