I've only listened to Tribute a couple times. The fidelity is good for its' age. Perhaps I need to listen to it more, although I've owned this title for nearly 10 years. With as rabid as my buying habits are, it's difficult to give anything heavy rotation. Although I have most of Sam's output, I would prefer to listen to Lady Day perform this material.

Good ones there!

How is Tribute to a Lady in Stereo SACD? It wasn't issued on SACD in the U.S. but I hear it has just been reissued on SACD in the U.K.
May have to get that one this time! :)

Regarding the Laura Nyro SACD, it is superb. If you like her at all, YOU NEED IT! Musically, I prefer Eli, New York Tendaberry, Christmas & Beads of Sweat (w/Duane Allman & Felix Caviliere), Smile and Mother's Spiritual. I had the pleasure of seeing her twice at Chicago's Vic. A true genius.

This one brings back memories - the debut album by America. Although I don't remember it sounding this good when it originally was released!
Another fine remastering job by Steve Hoffman on the Audio Fidelity label.
