Hybrid Stereo SACD
One of the major audiophile recordings comes around full circle. Recorded in 1979 at London's Watford Town Hall by the great engineer/producer Brian Culverhouse, this was one of the first digital LPs on the market. Several years later, Albany reissued it on CD in a more complete version of the score. And now, nearly 30 years later, it's back on SACD, sounding better than ever. This is lovely, tonal, neo-Romantic music lavishly written for the orchestra and vocalists (singing both in English and Hawaiian) in a particularly sympathetic performance conducted by Lee Holdridge whose own fame as a film and concert composer increased in the years since.
