Steely Dan - Gaucho - 5.1 SACD


I hear that's a good one.   Some say the DVD-A is even better, but I think that's probably just in their heads.

I think there may something to that claim.  Next time you are over bring the DVD-A version for a comparo.

Billy Cobham   Life & Times

This is a great test album. You'll know within a few cuts if your cartridge is tracking well. Obviously the drums are exceptionally well recorded, but the guitar solos are just as good. Very nice album / music.... the synthesizer effects are not overdone, which was more than typical of the era lol

I really enjoyed most of this.   About 30 seconds into "Try Not to Breathe" I realized it was too soon and skipped through it.   "Sweetness Follows", however, was strangely encouraging.   The mixes were particularly nice on the four tracks with John Paul Jones orchestrations.

The recording quality is so-so,  clean but not the best mastering.  But the music selection is awesome,  as in awesome tape mix.
