Comments/comparisons? Sterling's just released their version of this one, I see, today.

It's a difficult call, Lunna, when you can't do a side by side comparison but checking CDJapan's website, there is NO indication which masters they accessed (96/24?) for the SHM~SACD.

As a rule, but NOT specifically stated on Acoustic Sounds' website, they usually access the original master tapes and of course with the AP pressing being significantly less expensive (and subject to further discounting), I would opt for the AP pressing.

Was interesting to read that Pat Metheny learned how to play guitar listening to this album.

Will definitely add this and the upcoming Ella Fitzgerald "Let No Man Write my Epitath" (10/15) to my next SACD order from Acoustic Sounds.

Thanks Rammie, I can always count on your for a quick response! I also put in an order, with the other on-line dealer ...

And perhaps, Lunna, like the inimitable Pat Metheny, you'll become a "guitar god' after experiencing Smokin' at the Half Note.
