Pulled this one out last night - hadn't played it in a few years. I must say this is one of the best examples of "rock" SACD's I have come across. Great imaging, nice bass, good soundstage and Roy's voice is mixed to be front, center and a little high without burying the band behind him. Speaking of ... more

I also have the ES65850 and find similar distortion of her voice. However, her recent live RBCD "Welcome to my living room" has very similar problems with her voice. Perhaps it is the mic's or recording engineer - or maybe a tired voice. In any case the SACD I have is well worth a trip down memory ... more

Not much to add to the glowing reviews to date. This is a superb SACD. If you are like me and struggle finding some Jazz you can listen to for a while - buy this disc! While known as a classic pop album when released, it is actually a fine piece of Jazz that is soothing and beautiful to listen to ... more

I can see how many would feel the sonics on this SACD rate at the high end - there is no doubt this is a well recorded and fine sounding SACD. It is a great disc to show off your system.

Think fall, a Friday night, and you can't figure out what to play. This SACD is a fine, eclectic mix of gospel, blues, country and more - all done very well in terms of songs, sound and mood. I didn't like this one in my car on the way home from purchasing it, but in my system, at the right time, it ... more

Correction. Not sure why, but I confused Alone & Acoustic with a different cd. I was actually referencing the "Last Time Around - Live at Legends cd. ... more

I have to agree with you on Folk Singer as well as the potential for an SACD of Alone and Acoustic. While I have many fine sounding SACD's, the best sounding disc I have, imho & on my system, is the redbook Alone & Acoustic. So raw and in your face. Where Folk Singer is warm & enveloping, Alone and Acoustic is front row bite and energy. ... more
