That's right, you're 'the girl next door, Linda!' BTW, does Music Direct have a showroom or retail store in Chicago? And BTW, isn't MoFi supposedly going to release Paul Simon's 'Still Crazy After All These Years' as a stereo SACD?Music Direct shipped mine, too. Hopefully, it will show up tomorrow.
Curious how it sounds compared to their gold CD from 1996. Also from original master tapes.MoFi's usual superb SACD reissue remastered at DSD256 from the original master tapes. Probably the best it's ever going to sound.

My guess is that some of the distortion on the SACD was intended (as you say).Couldn't agree more. Detected a few things that were perhaps lost in the mud previously. A plus.
Still, there is much distortion, both intentional and some perhaps unintentional.
I doubt that the new version uses the Gold CD mastering. The new edition was mastered by Rob LoVerde - I don't believe he was working for MFSL when the Gold CD was mastered.Mine arrived as well. Can't wait to get a chance to compare the SACD to the MoFi original master Ultra CD that I have! Wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't the exact version, only mastered on SACD instead of CD.
Just received the SACD. On first listen, it sounds very very good- the SACD is more detailed, and it has better imaging that the MFSL Gold CD. -- AJH
The SACD is very crankable. I sold my MFSL Gold Disc awhile ago so I can’t compare it to the new SACD, but from memory the Gold Disc comes in a distant second. -- Good Boy Fred
Mine came today, # 143. First things first: This is not an audiophile album. Anyone who's ever heard it knows that. However, after a full listen, this will be my go-to copy from now on. I have a feeling some may find this mastering too dull on some tracks, but to me, there is a depth to the sound that I've never heard on this album. The vocals shine here - they have the "breath of life", so to speak. In that regard, it's a winner in my book. Now, the odd part. Three tracks seem to have reversed channels: "Most Anything You Want", "Are You Happy", and the title track all have the channels backwards from what they normally are. Anyone else notice this?
