Every once in a while something comes out of left field and knocks your socks off!
The issuer of this title is 'Stereo Sound'. A Japanese outfit akin to 'Stereophile' in the USA. The difference though, is that they release SACD's. Primarily test disc's, but they also do proper titles as well. There are over 40 titles on their web page. Only a small number of which are logged here at HRAudio.
For example, Karla Bonoff, James Taylor and Holly Cole figure. Fortunately they also have an international (English Language) store if your interest piqued.
When first issued back in 1985 this title had a average DR of 13. There has also been an egregious Culture Factory remaster from 2014 with an average DR of 7.
It its initial incarnation it was quite dry and thin sounding. It was also flagged as an ADD production. That middle 'D' doubtless having a substantial influence on the sound.
This SACD though is a revelation. Remastered by Robert Vosgien at Capitol Studios, Los Angeles July 2018.
There is a little bit of compression, but it sounds beautiful all the same. I reckon they might have gone back to the multi tracks for this one. It has a wide spacious fuller sounding presentation and there is so much more going on in the mix that I was unaware of, whilst still retaining the dry, spare production of the original. It is quite beautiful.
If you are a Suzanne Vega fan this is well worth stumping up for.
