You should hear Cornholio sing "Lesbian Seagull"
I've only listened to Are You Experienced SACD once. I thought it sounded good, but not fantastic. I bought it on a 2ch Reprise riverboat pressing when it was originally released. I also bought a mono German CD with UK version, LP box, 2 LP w/Axis, US CD, expanded US CD, and Sony CD/DVD.
Hello @Quad Linda
Is the SACD an improvement over any previous version?

The Knack - Get The Knack

(2017) Capitol Records, LLC

Get the Knack is the debut album by American rock band The Knack, released in June 1979. At the time, the album was one of the most successful debuts in history, selling over one million copies in less than two months and spending five weeks at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart.

The lead single from the album, "My Sharona", was number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for six weeks and number one on Billboard's Top Pop Singles of 1979 year end chart. The follow-up single, "Good Girls Don't," reached number 11 on the Hot 100 and followed "My Sharona" to number one on the Canadian Singles Chart.

Get the Knack was recorded in just two weeks at a cost of only $18,000, an extremely quick and inexpensive recording at a time when many established artists were spending months and several hundred thousand dollars to record an album. The album was produced by Mike Chapman, who had written hits for Sweet in the early 1970s and most recently produced Blondie’s breakout album Parallel Lines.

How's the music 🎶 and fidelity?
Linda, it was recorded in March of 2002 at Avatar Studios and to my ears these two aging jazz legends along with Don Friedman on piano and Marcus McLaurine on Bass can still swing with the best of 'em!

The recording is up to Japanese label Eighty~Eights usual high standards.....all I know is my cat jumped off her pillow when the startling opening track "Statements" with just Terry on trumpet and Roach on drums emanated from my B & W 802 Nautilus speakers!

So glad to have this in my collection!
