Phew, what a thing this is!
The previous Columbia SACD issued in 2001 was based on the Bob Belden 1997 remix/Remastered by Tom Ruff/Engineered for SACD by Mark Wilder.
This one advises "Mastering Engineer: Mark Wilder/Koji Suzuki" - No other information is provided.
Not having heard the 2001 SACD I can't even speculate if we are looking at the same source. But given the lack of added reverb it is probably safe to say we are NOT looking at the original Teo Macero master.
I can only really comment on the stereo as I am not a multi channel person. As an aside though, the chatter around the various electronic campfires seems to be highly approving of the multi channel (Quad) version here.
It has that signature clean Japanese sound, is surprisingly detailed for a mostly live recording of this era and whilst leaning towards being thin sounding it is fuller sounding than I was expecting. It also flirts with being a shade too bright for mine, but not by much. Sonically overall it is an excellent listen.
Also surprising for me was that my wife really liked the album - even without knowing anything about the backstory surrounding its creation.
The 7 inch gatefold cover is a thing of glowing beauty - almost worth the asking price in its own right. As befits an album such as this, even the artwork has a backstory: Turns out that Miles wanted a toad to represent evil on the back cover and the artist looked around for inspiration and came up with J Edgar Hoover in drag as his toad! Brilliant.
Nb. I'm really hoping that Mark does a proper review. There is so much to explore here (including the cellar door dates that were subsequently issued in their own right), that it really needs his masterful erudite touch to do justice to the material.
