Sara K. is in a class all her own. This singer is gifted with the rare ability of having an emotional grasp of the listener by virtue of her spontaneous and intensive aura that casts a spell on the listener. All her records have received several high-caliber awards, including a number of jazz awards. Supported by Stockfisch technology, musically accompanied by renowned musicians, a singer/songwriter extraordinaire is on her way between folk and blues, between Joni Mitchell and Janis Joplin. Great music and great sound: Hell or High Water is both.

Easily one of the best multichannel sacds out there. Sara is on top of her game and recorded beautifully.

SACD version is the best!

Having just listened to the SACD version -- as good as the XRCD K2 version is -- this SACD blows it away! Sara is so much more present. I mean, she is right there in front of me -- and I have a modest Primaluna/Sonus Faber two channel system. Buy the SACD copy of Hell Or High Water while it is still in stock.

Superb Sound, Wonderful Music

I've loved Sara K for years, having bought most of her Chesky recordings. This disc, from Stockfisch, is different from the more spartan Chesky issues, in that it makes use of overdubbing and multitracking. Günter Pauler, of Pauler Acoustics, produced and recorded the music, and it is simply gorgeous. The sound quality is stunning. If you want to hear what the state of the recording art sounds like, this is it.

Sara's voice has never sounded better. It's like fine, aged cognac. Every instrument retains its own unique character, from Ms. K's dusky custom four string guitar, to the late Chris Jones' silky six, and Hrolfer Vagnsson's haunting accordion on Ship in a Bottle.

Most importantly, the music itself marvelous. This is one of Sara's best collections of songs ever. I especially love Curtain Calls, and the compelling Streetlight's On, but each song is a gem. If you're like me, you'll play the disc over and over, finding something new to love about it each time.

Like all great recordings, the very best ones seem to disappear, and if you procrastinate, you'll have to locate the disc later on EBay for three to five times the original price. Don't let this happen to you! This SACD is among the best two or three discs I own...perhaps THE best. Not only is Sara K a distinct pleasure to listen to, but the Stockfisch recording process is phenomenal. This disc is mesmerizing in surround mode, but nearly as amazing in stereo, with rich ambience that has to be heard to believe! A great audiophile demo disc to amaze your friends! Don't delay...get this disc now!
