Thanks; now done.
I have never bought a Tower Records SACD. Is it fair to assume that they use original analogue tapes? Do they re-master in DSD or PCM?
The recording, made in 1963 by Supraphon, is beautifully remastered for SACD by Tower Records Japan. Clean and warm with a wonderful orchestral balance. The brass may be a bit ...
Do you think it would be better in MC, Bruce? I think you are a stereo man.
Tempted by this as I can recall owning the lp.

I think, this one even 'though it's speciality is the music but you can't have one without the other as the old song goes.
Most other 'hi-fi' websites like AUDIO ASYLUM seem ...

This is a quad disc, but I'm a simple guy and I can only comment on the stereo side of things.
This sounds pretty good. Very analogue sounding and not at all compressed - good sound staging to boot.
My only grumble sound wise is that the very top end vocal sounds are a little bit smudged at times. Though this is not unknown from tapes of this era.
My other grumble though relates to the twofer presentation. In this instance we have one good album (All American Boy) and one so so one (spring fever). Not really a bonus to have the dead wood along for the ride. You can get around it by programming in the tracks you want to hear, but in this case the tracks on All American Boy segue into each other so it don't work quite so well as a work around in this instance.
