DSD file created by Gus Skinas from the original DSD audio used to create the existing SACD.

"Sitting atop the charts in 1975, Elton John and Bernie Taupin recalled their rise to power in Captain Fantastic & the Brown Dirt Cowboy, their first explicitly conceptual effort since Tumbleweed Connection. It’s no coincidence that it’s their best album since then, showcasing each at the peak of their powers, as John crafts supple, elastic, versatile pop and Taupin’s inscrutable wordplay is evocative, even moving." - All Music Guide

Not as rich and fluid as the DSD version of "Madman" but still a quality download. A significant sonic upgrade over both the (flat sounding) original and remastered (thin and overly bright 2005 issue) CDs.

Reviewer: Jerome
This one suffers badly from dynamic range compression and a ton of sample clipping. I converted the DSD files to 24bit/192 PCM I so could check them in Adobe Audition. The first track alone has over 16,000 clipped samples in the left channel and 38,000 in the right. Some of the worst I have seen. The others that I bought: specifically: Honky Chateau, Madman Across the Water, Tumbleweed Connection, and Goodbye Yellow Brick Road are very, very nice and sound great.
