"I have to confess to being somewhat bemused by the previous reviewer only awarding this disc 4 stars because of the standard CD layer. Those buying this version are paying the extra because they want the 3 channel SACD version, and, as the other reviewer stated, it is glorious.
Recorded on 35 mm film and digitally transferred, it is a great deal of fun, and the sound is in the audiophile category. Maybe not a disc that you would play all the time, but when the mood takes you, it is wonderful. It is a great tribute to the recording techniques used all those years ago that this disc sounds as amazing as it does.
An audiophile favorite... for a reason

"This SACD is an audiophile favorite, so is the LP and for good reasons. With gear up to the task the instruments spread in a wide semi-circle in front of you with all their subtle tone differences clearly exposed. The music is full of energy and verve and dynamic, tonal colours are superb.
The flip-side and reason for only 4 stars is that the CD layer is not capable of providing this level of information and transparency. It is actually quite a let-down with very metallicaly uniform tones and instruments massed on top of each other (maybe not quite that bad but certainly not the wide stage of the SACD of LP).
So only recommended if you have an SACD player up to the task - otherwise get the vinyl."
