Hybrid Multichannel SACD



Jeff Beck Wired (SACD Multi-channel Hybrid Edition) w/ mini LP cardboard sleeve

Recorded in 1976 with the legendary George Martin as producer (The Beatles), both reprise their magic from Beck's Blow By Blow with a stunning new array of jazz-rock-funk fusion, which is often sited as one of this genres finest recordings.

This time for the eight incredible tracks, Jeff brings back the great Max Middleton on keys and Richard Bailey on drums, as well as new additions and future mainstay keyboardist Jan Hammer and the power drums of Michael Narada Walden, plus bassist Wilbur Bascomb.

With legendary tracks such as Charles Mingus's "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat," and Jan Hammer's "Blue Wind," Wired soon became a radio and retail staple which has truly endured and stood the test of time. Rightfully so, this album continues to inspire and influence a whole new generation of guitar players and music lovers worldwide.

Japanese original release. SACD Hybrid Multichannel Edition of Wired. The disc is divided into two layers as follows: SACD (5.1ch) and CD. The CD layer uses audio source translated from SACD (2ch). Both layers feature the latest remastering. 7-inch cardboard sleeve packaging.

SACD used the DSD master digitally translated from the original "Quadraphonic" master. And Japanese edition upgraded it to 5.1ch version. Comes with a double-sided obi, each side featuring obis (White/Blue) of Japanese LPs (first pressing / reissue).

Also comes with a "Iron Sticker," which was included in the Japanese first pressing LP, and an ad poster. Faithfully replicates the artwork of the original "Quadraphonic" LP design (logo and fold label).

Includes an inner bag, a description about "Quadraphonic" mix, and the original liner notes.

Excellent 5.1 Mix

While you can always argue about certain choices on a remix like this, the bottom line is that this is a truly great set of tracks that are vastly improved by what turns out to be an excellent multi-channel treatment. I have listened to this set since it first came out in the 1970s and listening to this SACD in 5.1 was nonetheless a whole new experience. While Blow By Blow is at least as good a set of tracks (and arguably better), Wired gets more out of the surround sound treatment - at least for my ears. Great sound, great mix, great music and without question one of my favorite 5.1 discs. Very highly recommended.
