a REVIEW OF THIS SACD POSES QUITE A PROBLEM.

If the orignal recording is not quite at the top level but the transfer is good enough to reveal this and is an accurate copy of the original tapes...how do you rate the sound quality??

THE RECORDING IS NOT THE BEST. bY THIS i MEAN THAT THERE IS NONE OF THE GREAT INSTUMENTAL/VOICE SEPERATION OF THE VERY BEST RECORDINGS..BUT HAVING SAID THAT.........THIS IS A DECENT SOUNDING SACD.

While some tracks sound veiled and a tad stuffy....others sound quite good. Also the more I played this sacd, the better it sounded. SHM-SACD'S need to be broken in.
The first thing I noticed on this import sacd was the quality of Winwood's voice which is actually very nice on most tracks. I was surprised by how round and solid it felt.
The 2nd track.....cant find my way home...my favourite Blind Faith song sounds very worn and flat which is sad to say.
The best track.by far..... is the last on (DO WHAT YOU WANT) which is almost 16 minutes of great jam which includes a very good clapton guitar solo and a very long Baker drum solo which sounds awesome. Clearly the best track by far.


I would recommend this as it is a classic album and it does sport decent sonics overall with several tracks that stand out very well. If you like this album get it as you wont find better sound. But being honest with you.it is not a 5 star transfer because of the tape quality and the actual recording process.

What?

This SACD achieves the impossible. It is warm, detailed, dynamic. It's easily the most amazing sounding album of all of the SHM-SACDs I have bought.

I cannot rate this highly enough. There are some great sounding Tom Toms on this recording.

I never owned this album previously and I LOVE it.
