agreed. a really nice, great-sounding Mch release. a solid 8. (and what a great last few weeks to be able to add all three of the releases to the collection!)daved64 said:Really nice disc. David Elias has a voice that reminds me of JJ Cale....he kinda sings TO you rather than AT you. Lovely sound and a nice "in the room " mix. The music is great too....folky, bluesy, bluegrass....great playing. I gave it an 8, and would have given higher, but the standards set by Deadwing and Brothers in Arms are rather lofty.
Another outstanding, direct to DSD recording. This one will shine on any SACD system, but it really shows off on the high end SACD players and systems. Wow!eelkiller said:Beautiful sounding disc. How did I miss this guy??
I'd strongly recommend getting both. They are outstanding.Both of his SACD titles are available from CD Baby at $9.99 each. Would be $24 delivered to the US for both. I read about this at SH forums this morning but knew nothing about him previously.
Not exactly mainstream releases today, it is folk music, but I am considering getting both.
Yes, the two David Elias Surround SACDs are still classics sonically years after their release.Listening to this right now. Every time I listen to both the David Elias surround albums, I'm all taken away by their strong moods. Truly beautiful music, and I love his voice.
As I said on the poll for "The Window," there is more going on in the rears here than there is on the other album. Notwithstanding, both albums perfectly exemplify how flawless hi-res sound and surround mixing can draw you up-close into already intimate recordings. Just wonderful.
