Although much admired by Stevie's fans over the years, personally I found some of the material here rather heavy going especially on the second half of the album involving worthy, but nevertheless important, political statements and 7 of the 17 tracks weigh in at a mighty 6 minutes or more. However, there are some classic cuts here which make this confection worth sticking with including 'Sir Duke', 'I Wish', 'Isn't She Lovely', 'Pastime Paradise' and the fabulously funky 'Contusion', which is probably the outstanding party piece of the whole package. Overall, I enjoyed this experience but I think the whole thing could have been compressed to a single album.

This High Fidelity Pure Audio disc has to be the best version of this album I have heard glorious 96/24 sound captures all of the nuances of the album so well.
The music is so well known that I cant really write about it the hits 'Sir Duke' and 'Isn't she Lovely' are stand outs as is the 'Pastime paradise' which younger viewers might recognise as something else.

While the sound quality is excellent, disc presentation is kind of strange with a horrible menu and no track details, just a track number to pick from.
The disc auto starts on the LPCM track which is great, but why also include DTS MA and Dolby True HD when they are all effectively the same, though on some players Dolby THD suffers from a horrible Dai-norm issue, because it was predominately designed as a film encoding and not for music.
For me a 5.1 mix would have been the icing on the cake again a wasted opportunity.
Despite the above I have to give this 5 stars this is a great release and after all it is the sound that counts.
