This review is from: Billy The Kid, Rodeo/Grand Canyon (Gould) [Sacd/CD Hybrid] (Audio CD)
This is atmospheric American scene music, musical pictures of the best kind. The recordings are some of the earliest stereo recordings produced in the 50s and 60s, some before the Westrex stereo cutting lathe to produce stereo LPs was invented. They were originally issued on stereo tape. The quality is superb. No messing about with remixes, they are recorded with just 2 or 3 mikes very carefully positioned and recorded to 15ips or 30 ips tape. The result is superb realistic music. SACD makes the most of this and the disc is ideal to show off just what SACD can do. Highly recommended with stunning dynamic range and attack.
