Weather Report: Heavy Weather      (3 of 3 found this review helpful)
  Review by StyleAndEntertainmen May 14, 2005

What a great CD! This album sounds awesome (given it's age) and even though it's stero "only" it has an incredible sound stage with the sound extending way way out beyond the edges of the speakers.

  Review by Chris May 13, 2005

This SACD from LSO Live ,as "nickc",rightly pointed out in his review, is a bit of a mixed bag. The Serenade is better recorded than the Symphony,different balance engineers.
