The Best Version of A Classic, Favorite Album

5 Stars
Posted Thursday, March 10, 2016 by Jeffrey Fritz "Album 1700" is, by far, my favorite Peter, Paul & Mary album. I own the original LP and the Warner Brothers CD.

So how does the SACD sound? In a word "fantastic!" The vocals are clean and clear. Dick Kniss' upright acoustic bass is amazing on "Weep for Jamie" and "Whatshername." Clear, clean, strong and powerful-- much more so than on either the LP or CD. You can hear every string on the bass as it's played. The rest of the instruments come through sounding natural and real.

Kevin Gray has somehow figured out how to tame Mary Travers vocals. Mary had a powerful voice that could overload just about any microphone used to record her. How Kevin Gray overcame that is a mystery--but I'm glad that he did.

Tape hiss is audible during the quiet passages. I think that's a good thing because it may mean that processing was kept to a minimum in the remaster.

Kevin Gray's remaster lets me hear what happened in the recording studio back in 1967--and that

ATR-001 Reproduction

5 Stars
Posted Wednesday, December 26, 2012 by CADiver The original Esther LP were from ~1980 by ATR or ATR-001. I had 2 of the original LP and 1 CD much much later. Very familar w/ this disc. I can't wait to see what FIM does to it. I can tell you this disc should not be a hi-fi audition test disc but I know we all do! On the music side, love her ability to sing, so many variation of style. Every songs show her ability to sing differently.

Beautifully recorded, but...

2 Stars
Posted Tuesday, March 13, 2007 by Marcos I purchased this LP on the strength of the B&W sampler, which both sounded wonderful and contained some really good music from lesser-known artists. (Sara K. aside). Unfortunately, David Roth, while pleasant, is about as mediocre a talent as I can imagine. His songwriting is uninspiring and his rendition of Don McLean's "Vincent" only reminds you of how good Don's version was. Honestly, David should have been cast in the movie "Sideways" as the background guitarist at the Frass Canyon winery. He's that cliche. On the positive side, Stockfisch seems to know something about vinyl that others don't, because the pressing is beautifully mastered with vibrant presence and ultra-quiet surfaces. Too bad about the content. Don't let this put you off from purchasing the B&W sampler, which showcases some really talented people. I don't wonder why they left Roth off of it. Sorry David - you look like a very nice guy, but... get a job.
