Agreed, it is funky to the bone and the surround mix is great! Highly recommended.My #1 Maceo Parker - School's In
This is a great funk record, and a very good surround disc. The horns come at you from all directions. This is the best funk record that has come out in years (imho). Maceo can be very jazzy, but this one is 100% old school funk, from beginning to end. (see James Brown and P-Funk for Maceo history). Skip past track 3 and enjoy the other 9 tracks. This is my number 1 surround disc and I doubt it'll ever be topped.
I give it a 10
Yowza! Well, I've never claimed to have golden ears... more like pewter!Funny - I just changed my avatar to this album an hour or so ago.... as I'd just made a DVD-A of it for my car...
Having a look at the WAVs for this taken from the SACD its "a tad" compressed.... but otherwise a great disc...
Right. Even calling it stereo is a bit of a stretch. Just had a listen and I'm not hearing any difference amongst FL, FR, RL, and RR. The center channel is somewhat different with bass and drums and never any vocals. Very poor surround mixing effort.Hm, I gave only a 6, because it's only a enhanced stereo disc.
Where are the discrete sounds?
So far the sound in general is superb, but it is not a true surround one.
