A wonderful album of timeless classics gets the loving care it deserves. When describing the audio of this SACD, the words that come to mind are analogue and warm. A real pleasure to listen to, the instruments in particular are very organic and the vocals are smooth. Highly recommended.

I'm a big Supertramp fan so I was cautiously optimistic about this release, already satisfied with MoFi's gold disc. I can tell you that this SHM-SACD did not disappoint, on the contrary it exceeded my expectations. Supertramp recorded their music very well, and in combination with good mastering on ... more

Maybe your hearing just isn't that good if you can't hear the extra resolution of hi-res on the same mastering. I'll admit it's not always a big difference but it's certainly noticeable to me and I'm sure many others. So there's no need to make us feel like we're stupid or crazy if we feel differently. If there really was no benefit as you say, ... more

Regarding Super Session, as far as I'm concerned it's one of the greatest albums ever made, and if you disagree... you've either never heard it or you don't listen to blues rock. Just because it's not something that appeals to you doesn't mean its an "uninspiring" release. This will make a lot of folks like me very happy. ... more
