oh crap is that a good one !!!!
I just ordered a couple of Bill Evans mqa'ers. Cant wait

Classic Bill......wish they also released Bill's amazing QUINTESSENCE on SACD but a different label [FANTASY RECORDS]. On Quintessence, Bill's version of "A Child Is Born" is breathtakingly beautiful.

I missed out on the JC LOVE SUPREME SHM~SACD but I did manage to buy the Japanese BD~A 192/24 version when CDJapan was blowing out their unsold BD~A stock for $10~12! Sounds sensational!

Glad Universal Japan is 'continuing' their SHM~SACD releases. I don't know if you recall, Rick, when they first introduced the format the list on those discs was $60!!!!!!!! My SHM~SACD of Camel's "Rain Dances" just shipped out today from ImportCD!

Now they're priced less than the MoFi/AP Stereo hybrid SACDs. Now, that's what I call PROGRESS!

Ralph
most versions of this album sound thin and weak. How is this version ?
HARDLY audiophile, Rick. Thin and weak might still be an apt term. NO bass! I'm sure Universal Japan did what they could with the masters but IMO, a poor choice for UMG to 'show off' the SHM~SACD format. And hardly worth the $60 [ouch!] I initially paid for it.

Probably BEST PLAYED during a crackling thunderstorm with deep deep bass to compliment Rainbow's manic musicianship!⚡
But I will say, Ronnie James Dio's vocals on Track #8 "Rainbow Eyes" sounds sensational ...... but it's a ballad!
