I wonder how it would compare with the 2004 MLP DVD~A 5.1 remastered version released by Rhino/Warner which admittedly was not exactly a discrete sonic showcase.

BTW, MoFi has been utilizing DSD 256 [QUAD DSD] for the past few years to remaster their SACDs from the original analogue masters.

Try the Japan SACD 5.1 release I think its better....not talking about the box set

SHIPPING NOW: Joe Jackson's 80's Classic Body and Soul
Hybrid CD/SACD!
• Remastered to DSD by Kevin Gray at CoHEARent Audio
• Hybrid CD/SACD Plays On All CD and SACD Players
• Super Jewel Box Packaging
"Daring in range, startling in craft, Body and Soul put to bed forever the idea that Joe Jackson was just another punk." -Something Else!

"... an impeccable release." -All Music

Click HERE to get your copy NOW!

Body and Soul is Joe Jackson's jazz-infused followup to his 1982 smash Night and Day. It features two of Joe's most cherished compositions, "You Can't Get What You Want (Till You Know What You Want)" and "Be My Number Two."
Body and Soul is a landmark recording as well, being an early digital recording captured on a 32-track 3M system in New York City's Masonic Lodge.
Body and Soul's original PCM digital files are remastered to DSD by Kevin Gray at CoHEARent Audio. The results are amazing! Body and Soul has never sounded so big and full-bodied. The reverberant space of the hall is beautifully drawn, and more three-dimensional and holographic than ever, and the band more dynamically explosive.
The Blue-Note-inspired album art is beautifully restored by IR's Tom Vadakan and housed in a super jewel box.

Great, great album
Compared the SACD layer to the original MoFi Gold Disc from ‘91
I’m leaning towards the SACD but it’s really close. The tapes back then were approximately 27 years younger, I’m thinking that helps the 24K version

I like most of the stuff put out by the current iteration of MFSL. I’m not crazy about this one though. It’s never going to be an audiophile recording, but this one just doesn’t sound quite right to me. I prefer the original CD or the original vinyl (although there are good and bad early cuts of the vinyl).

Finally received this Universal Music Hong Kong [Pressed in Japan] Stereo SACD and my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION. If you LOVE the Blues......BUY IT!

ImportCD has the BEST PRICE [Amazon charges $43 and Elusive Disc $40]



Hmmm, I'm pretty sure I put an order in to maybe elusive DISC a long while ago (they still show pre-order on their web page), I get the feeling it's not coming :unsure:

*- I may need to enact the GOS Duality Maneuver with another order to importcds, before this thing goes out of print :eek:

For peace of mind and to save at least $10, check your pre~order with Elusive disc and CANCEL, then order from Import, JP!

There is something you should know about Elusive Disc...they aren't exactly current on their pre orders...this one was posted on their website in 2014...and the Pure Audio Blu Ray program was shut down several years ago...even Acoustic Sounds is more up to date then these folks..
