Beethoven: Symphonies Nos. 1-9 - Haitink          (8 of 8 found this review helpful)
  March 23, 2013

This is a review of the 2ch program only, and focuses mainly on the sound quality. Don't pre-judge this cycle by the other mainly-disappointing LSO Live recordings. With LSO Live we have come to expect overzealous spotlighting which results in flat two-dimensional sound due to everything sounding ... more
Tchaikovsky: 1812 Overture - Gergiev        (8 of 11 found this review helpful)
  March 13, 2013

I must say I don't get all the 5-star reviews of the sonics. I have to agree with those who gave poor sonic reviews. The cannons actually clip; that's why there is no bass energy in them. They simply exceed the amplitude limits of the digital format, so all that is left is a weak click where there ... more
Nat "King" Cole: After Midnight        (6 of 6 found this review helpful)

Firstly: who the heck is that one person out of 20 (at the time of writing) who voted NOT to recommend this remastered masterpiece?! Sheesh! I have to echo earlier sentiments. This album is SO well recorded and remastered. The energy of the performances push it almost into rock 'n roll territory. ... more
Sonny Rollins: Way Out West      (1 of 1 found this review helpful)
  July 20, 2012

To those comparing the SHM SACD with the Analogue Productions SACD: a little background is in order. Unfortunately Doug Sax - or his research staff - has made some really bad blunders and secured several second- or third-generation tapes, thinking he had the originals, despite the rather hissy ... more
Cannonball Adderley Quintet: In San Francisco        (2 of 2 found this review helpful)
  July 15, 2012

The music here is not simply "straight-ahead hard bop" as suggested by Claude. This is mostly "soul jazz" - jazz with a heavy soul (and R 'n B) bent - although there are a couple of numbers played in the hard bop style as well. The band swings throughout and the solos from Cannonball show him to be ... more

Ah, but I was referring to the *Audio Fidelity* remasters, which use the original stereo masters (yes, in bad shape I guess). The Columbia Legacy issues, on the other hand, used the original multitrack SESSION TAPES, which were in great shape and were faithfully remixed by Vic Anesini, allowing greater clarity/resolution and improved reverb as ... more

Whilst I generally LOVE most of the AF (and DCC) remasters for their warmth and luscious valve tones (which I know is a bit controversial in audiophile circles - many prefer the cleaner sound such as heard on XRCDs, etc) I have to say I am not a fan of the AF Sounds Of Silence CD compared to the Vic Anesini remixes. Anesini, to my ears, has been ... more
