Michael McDonald: Motown        (0 of 1 found this review helpful)

Musically McDonald has a unique style if not a little strained at times. But frankly this SACD is compressed and loud. It lacks dynamics, body, and presence and sounds no better than a very averagely recorded RBCD.
Cat Stevens: Tea for the Tillerman        (1 of 2 found this review helpful)
  September 6, 2013

This is another excellent uncompressed Analogue Productions SACD sourced from the original analogue master tape with good dynamics, body, and presence. While Cat Stevens vocals are dominant at times, I certainly don't hear pinching, straining, or hardening. I would characterize the recording as ... more

After listening more to this SACD I still think musically it's very good for what it accomplishes technically and for the big band sound. But after further comparisons to other SACD's, I would currently lower the stereo sonic rating to (3) stars. IMO the disc exhibits some of the same compression artifacts of many RBCD's making the high end ... more
