The One To Get

This is the best sounding version of this album I have ever heard, it even tops the vinyl. The mastering is top notch and the extra disc of bonus tracks makes it even better. I have the domestic SACD as well and this one kills it. This will be getting lots of playing time!

I don't have a multi-channel system but this SACD mix really brings out the live concert experience. In addition to all the fine detail of the instruments, you really feel like you are at the concert! While Sarah sounds great, it's not only about her voice with this SACD.

Classical music is a relatively new (and limited) exploration for me so I cannot speak with authority concerning the music itself but it doesn't need me to as it certainly speaks for itself. Suffice it to say that I love this music even though it is new to these ears. But I can speak to the quality of this reissue because I have been purchasing music for over half a century and I've experienced all of the highs and lows that go with this lifelong endeavor. It seems that I am always in search of the "definitive" version of albums that I love and this was one of those rare times when you know that you could not have done any better and likely never will. I purchased the vinyl edition first and loved it so much that I also purchased the SACD for those times when a disc is more convenient. I cannot recommend this more strongly or more highly. If you are a fan of this title (or a novice such as myself), then purchase this with confidence. A huge "thank you" to all responsible.

One the of best sounding recordings I have heard. I own the SACD and absolutely love it. All of Lyn's albums are fantastic, but The Moonlight Sessions: Volume One has taken it to an entire new level. Thank you for such a wonderful album.

Excellent SACD

I bit the bullet and bought this awhile ago but I can honestly say I am very glad I picked it up. First off, it's the Stones so we are not talking Steely Dan production but for how it was recorded it sounds great. This is my favourite Stones record and the sound improvement over the currently over compressed red book version. It also has a thicker sound (Much better bottom end). You can also hear a bit more separation between instruments. If you are a major fan of this album you will totally hear were the extra money went!

Possibly the greatest jam band gig ever recorded. Greg Allman's rich B3 sound cannot be played too loud, neither can Duane's brilliant screaming guitar. I was looking for rich DSD sound on a SACD release of this classic, and this wonderful Mofi offering delivers.

The mastering of this album by Analogue Productions is just amazing. I did not listen to the CD layer. The SACD layer is just so real. A lot of dynamics and smooth in a good way. This is best I've ever heard this album in a digital medium.

A Must Have!

This has been one of my favourite live album for years. This was originally a Japanese release only then in '91 it was released here. The '91 CD had some issues with distortion. However it doesn't here. The mastering on this SACD is great. I have to be honest I was thinking that this was not going to sound very good. Based solely on what I thought the master tapes might be like. Well I was wrong and very happy to admit it. This, hopefullly will show there is a market for Jazz/Rock fusion SACD's . I would love to hear the four CD set of Miles At The Fillmore on SACD!

Man I Hope There Are More!

I was very excited when I heard this was coming out and I wasn't disappointed. Yes there is some distortion (as do most early Stax releases) but over all the sound is a major improvement over the last reissue (and the reissue was good). I would love to see Otis's whole catalog come out. Including live releases. I spent three days on this planet while Otis was alive ( I was born December 7th 1967 and Otis died December 10th 1967) yet his impact on my love of music is huge. This is one of Otis's best, a lot would say it is his best. But in my opinion Otis never released a bad one. Buy the SACD because you will love it and if they gets sales maybe we will get more!

Excellent 5.1 Mix

5 Stars

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.

Duke Ellington - Masterpieces By Ellington Product No: CAPJ 4418 SA

Beautiful sound and now improved packaging.

Posted by CJ Feeney

This is a fantastic sounding disc given the age of the recording. Beauiful sounding solo instruements and the group arrangements really sing.

My original review reads as follows:

"I felt I had to deduct a star as the overall package is thin on information. Titles, composers, vocal credit to "Yvonne" but no other musician credits. Date of album recording, but not recording of bonus tracks. No recording venue stated. No explanatory notes of this albums place in Jazz history, no detail on the modern clean up and mastering."

To my surprise, a few months later Analogue Productions sent me an email asking. "If we sent you an improved set of packaging, would you re-review it?"

Wow, yes please.

The new insert includes the full band line up for each piece, more accurate recording session details and an impressive essay on the history of each piece in the years between composition in the 1930s onwards up to the 1950/51 LP recordings.

Excellent work. Fifth star well earned.

Despite being an SACD with self proclaimed "high resolution mastering" this hybrid disc is a poor recording - clear, but flat and lifeless. What's worse, the versions of songs like "Light my Fire", "In My Life", and "California Dreaming" are not the hit versions that we all listened to in our youth but rather less desirable alternative takes that I've never heard before. A huge disappointment - don't waste your money.
