"This CD has some fabulous music...but I wish AMAZON would list the artists performing each track...or AT LEAST enable the 30-second clip of each song, so prospective buyers can break the code for themselves. Please get with it, AMAZON."
Good Stuff

"A little background: I wouldn't describe myself as a blues (or whatever variation of blues this is) fan and I'd never heard of any of the people on this CD before I stumbled onto this album, but the samples sounded interesting and one of Amazon's Marketplace sellers was selling it cheap so I tried it. That said...

This is great stuff. I'm not a big fan of the first track (Rock Daniel), but as a whole this is genuinely engaging. The best music compels me to stop everything I'm doing and give it my full attention and this does that in spades.

You can get an idea of the music listening to the samples online but they don't do justice to what you'll hear listening to the SACD multichannel version on a nice system. Performances and recording are flawless. Surrounds place the listener on the stage with the performers on most tracks. Main performers are up front, but background vocals and instruments have a strong presence in the surrounds on several tracks. My subwoofer even gets used a little and it only kicks in for the lowest material. Definitely a strong multichannel mix that may not may not be to everyone's tastes but it really works for me. This hybrid disk has a CD layer as well as high resolution SACD stereo and 5.1 versions but I've only listened to the SACD 5.1 version.

Recommended without hesitation.

Hi-end acoustic blues

"Acoustic guitar on Eric's hands sounds very authentically. Bass strings go out on fronts, and nylons on surrounds. Voices are all around. I got a live performance impression. Stuff selection is multicolloured with strong jazz-blues layout. Blues fans should be listen, and buy this SACD."
