    Maybe I missed it, but I don't think anyone has started a thread on the recent SACD release of this classic title. My personal opinion on this one is that the sound is a bit harsh and a little too boosted in the high-end, but the 5.1 mix is excellent. I particularly like the 5.1 mix for 'You Sure Love to Ball'; it is very enveloping and involving. Opinions anyone?

    I thought it's a great title for SACD... I'm happy with the Deluxe Edition.

    Anyway a fantastic record... one of my favorites!

    I generally agree. I think "Just to Keep You Satisfied" is my favorite of the 5.1 mixes. I haven't really A/B'd the stereo with other masterings to see how it compares yet.

    Don't get me wrong, I thought the sound quality was pretty good. I just think they could have laid off the 'treble knob' a bit. ;) and it seems to be lacking a little in the warmth department.

    It has that digital eq sound to it which doesn't bother me too much unless a lot gets applied, but rarely sounds "warm".

    It was mastered by Darcy Proper at Sony. Here's the earlier thread on the subject.

    The Gavin Lurssen CD mastering of this album from the mid-90s was darker, almost to a fault, and is probably the best digital 2-channel version out there.
