Now that's what I'm talking about. Here's a disc that deserves all the stars given by previous reviewers. Mighty Sam and Co. Despite the DSD logo, "All tracks were recorded 30 ips direct to two track tape.
Not only are Hanging On The Cross - Mighty Sam McClain - Soul Survivor (SACD) real performances by the musicians, but by the recordists as well. Hats off to Michael C.
Ross and producer Joe Harley. These are the Real Men of audio. Sam don't need no steenking Autotune! There aren't even any overdubs! The band is tight, displaying flashes of amazing virtuosity and yet keeping it all contained; playing for the sake of the song, not their egos.
Even though this is a "Best Of" collection, the sonic differences among tracks are minimal. The imaging, space and "feel" of the vocal and instruments is very consistent. Stereo only, boys! If that feel is a bit "affected," this is your head inside a kick drum!
The only thing that might seem a bit odd on first listen is the juxtapositon of the themes of human love and divine love - sometimes within the same song. But again the word "real" applies - it just seems that this is Mighty Sam's world and he's laying it out for us without pretence. Sam belts in the first track, "Too Proud": "For one who thought love would last forever, Oh I should have checked my record!
Well done. Was this review helpful to you? Review by Marpow July 18, 2 of 4 found this review helpful. There are 5 excellent reviews before me starting in The first SACD for some. That says a lot right there. Lets just say a great lost weekend in Kansas, but I fell in love with Mighty Sam McClain as he clearly had a significant soul sound compared to the other blues artists.
This disc called Soul Survivor Como Dejar de Amarte - Los Bukis - Si Me Recuerdas a greatest hits, on the disc cover almost unnoticeable says, "The Best of". Quick Facts: Released Sarabande - J. S. Bach* AudioQuest. Born inMonroe, Louisiana. Unfortunately he just passed, June 15, Yasak Aşk (Remix) - Hande Yener - Best Of Remixes (File) Performance: Old school soul with a touch, just a touch of blues.
Primarily a 4 piece band with some tunes adding horns. Good uptempo recordings certainly toe tappers. Stereo Sonics: Not sure if it is because it is a best of disc Hanging On The Cross - Mighty Sam McClain - Soul Survivor (SACD) not quite the overall sonic gem as the other AudioQuest discs in this series.
As other reviewers have noticed. Beautiful from the instruments point of view the entire disc, but on some tracks Sam's vocals just go a little shrill when he raises his vocal volume. My favorite tracks are the first and last. But to be honest I like discs that stretch out, better to have all highs and a few lows than a flat boring SACD quality.
This will fit everybody's expectation of a great SACD. Extensive liner notes by Andy Grigg. Not quite the extensive notes on recording as other audioquest discs. Well I can say I was very happy to meet Sam, actually sat and talked with him for awhile, and sad that this beautiful voice has passed on. I hope my review was helpful, if not send me an email and tell me why. Review by lenw May 28, 1 of 1 found this review helpful. The Fool About You - Various - Lets Rock Tonight were transferred to SACD from a 30 ips direct to two rack tape.
The sonics are excellent with individual instruments clearly defined in the soundstage. If you like blues - this is a difinitive SACD.
